Naughty Bits is an anthology of erotic short stories by fifteen different authors. The stories vary between twenty and sixty pages in length and they include succubus/vampire, BDSM (but readers who have slogged their way through the Fifty Shades Trilogy will have had their fill of that, even if this predates FSOG), male/male sex, threesome sex, sex in public places, sex in the woods, sex with strangers, medieval sex, sex with fairies, phone sex, erotic letters, strip-chess, sex by astral travel, ...more

I'll review this as I go.

1. The Invitation by Lacy Danes. Hmmm, maybe it's me, okay it's me. But knife play and severe whipping are not erotic to me. This was a very short disturbing story.

2. Invite Me In by Delilah Devlin. The classic succubus/vampire story :) The succubus (I don't think there were any names in this story) floats around from mind to mind drawing sexual energy and ideas for her writing. One of the women in her building invites in a vampire and while she's hitching a ride during

This book surprised me at being better than I thought. It had quite a few stories, which I usually find works against an anthology more than for it. However, this was better than most. The sex scenes were very good pretty much across the stories. Sure, some stories felt snipped in short form and they should have been longer...there were unresolved issues, undeveloped characters, etc. But somehow the sexy couples and the steamy scenes made it okay if you know going in they are 'naughty bits' and ...more
This anthology was pretty good, not as good as those offered by Black Lace, but good. I was expecting more in the Short Story genre so I was thrown off when they were mostly excerpts or chapters from longer works. Fits the title of the book, though. My favorites were: "Anything You Want," "Come Back To Me," and "Psychic Sex." Psychic Sex was very unique! - not your everyday story.

This anthology certainly lived up to it's name. These short stories are all naughty bits. I didn't LOVE any of the stories. I didn't hate any of the stories. Paranormal sex stories, historical sex stories, BDSM, and just about anything else has a short story in here. Yes, it is hot, but with story after story of sex scenes, it gets a bit repetitive and boring.

I read "The Well-Tutored Lover" by Alice Gaines. Great command of the language. Lively dialog. Needed more variety in conflict.

Although this is an erotica collection, I initially read it for the story telling. The short stories are well told and most of the stories kept me engaged. There were a few stories I didn’t particularly care for. But I’m glad the book is formatted to where you can skip stories you don’t like and still not miss anything.
Great collection of sexy, short stories. Really enjoyed.

Had this anthology on my TBR list for a while now.
Mainly wanted to read it because of the Charlotte Featherstone story Forever Yours, which I rate as 4 star! Nobody does married romance like CF. This author never misses on the *feelz* Wish there was new material out there for us to enjoy. So I savored this one!
All new-to-me authors, the other 4 starers, IMHO, are:
The Queen's Tale by Grace D'Otare. Excellently presented historical love story told as an amusement between a contemporary couple in

Last night I had a great review almost completely done using my phone app when I got a message so I went to check it and lost the whole thing. I'm going to try again to recreate my "great" review.

"Naughty Bits" lives up to its name and is exactly as advertises a collection of the naughty bits. I picked up this book soon after getting my nook and discovering erotic and frankly it was all about the sex. I'm not sure how this book got "pushed" to the back of my nook shelf but after sitting there

This is an Anthology of Short Erotic Fiction. Some of it worked for me. Others not so much. There were a few that I had to just put the book down since I refused to throw it even though I wanted to.

My favorites were:
INVITE ME IN by Delilah Devlin
THE QUEEN'S TALE by Grace D'Ptare
FOREVER YOURS by Charlotte Featherstone

Overall it was a good collection of short stories. Keep in mind that they are not HEA required.

Invite Me In by Delilah Devlin: A story of a succubus and a vampire. It was a pretty hot read. 4 stars.

Gilt and Midnight by Megan Hart: I was actually disappointed by this story. 3 stars.

Forever Yours by Charlotte Featherstone: Definitely my favourite so far. I love the chemistry between Christian and Elizabeth. 5 stars.

This anthology is definitely not vanilla. It includes fifteen stories and while some of them worked really well in their short formats others felt a bit flat. Just a little bit more character would have been helpful. However, it is steamy fun and a great way to get to know new authors without having to commit to an entire book.

This collection is quite fun. There's a bit of variety in it to keep the reader from getting sick of the same old song and dance. There are self-empowered, confident women, a vampire, werewolves, tender love and relationships, and a bit of historical fiction. I quite enjoyed this collection, especially Megan Hart's "Gilt and Midnight" and the story titled, "The Moonlight Gathering."

this was a hard one to review...there were a lot of stories i loved, but there were a few that left me cold. i guess that's the beauty of an anthology, though-there's always something for everyone! i'll definitely go back and re-read a few tales in this volume.

I really enjoyed this set of stories. There was variety and steam! Sex should not be boring or without romance. These are authors that I will have to get more by. I'm sorry it's over. I'm going to get more.

No apologies was the best with a unique perspective.
Invite me in was an enjoyable paranormal read.

The Invitation was well-written but very very scary(to me)

Two of the stories ended too quickly for me but for the rest the book truly lived up to its title. I really enjoyed this read.
Shh I'm reading!
The stories in this were really hit or miss for me. The highlights, which warranted the 3 starts were Megan Hart, Kimberly Kaye Terry, and Alice Gaines. Well written, sexy, and great reads.

Definitely steamy! A lot of stories... Most were too short but they were hot and sexy for sure. They were interesting stories and some I had read before but most I had not.
