Sometimes more interesting than exciting, but that did nothing to lessen my enjoyment of the collection. I think the word 'erotic' in the title may have given me false expectations. These poems are about sex -- every strange, beautiful, passionate and awkward aspect of sex. That doesn't necessarily make them 'sexy'.
I loved just how many different niches of the human sexual experience are represented here. So many fetishes -- many of them criminally under-represented in modern poetry -- so many

Full disclaimer: I won this through a Goodreads giveaway.

I wasn't sure what to expect when I got this. The book is nicely made, with quality paper, and a beautiful cover. Seriously, this should get extra style points, the paperback is all kinds of nice.

Apparently I am not one for erotic poetry. This could be due to a lot of things. It could be that I'm just not into erotic poetry. It could be because I'm in a relationship with a woman, so I have trouble relating to the poems being from the male

I have followed PJ on twitter for over two years and have always looked up to him as an inspirational poet. Reading this book was everything I have come to expect from this writer.

Each poem is to be enjoyed and judged individually.

Every piece tells it's own story while keeping within the theme and style of the book overall.

It's too hard to choose one poem which stands out above the rest, but the thing I loved most about this book is it has diary entries which tell us a lot about PJ as a person a

I loved the erotic poetry of PJ Bayliss. His use of figurative language (imagery, metaphor, and such) really brings meanings to his poems. Some of the poems are just erotic in nature while most are erotic loves poems. I do recommend this book to people who enjoy erotica, but remember it is poetry. I found the poems so much better when I slowed down and read them aloud. The poems, like all poetry, are meant to be heard (hence the rhythmic patterns).

*I received the book for free through Goodreads

Sometimes in life you come across things that leave you breathless and for me this collection of poetry is one of those things. Throughout the book PJ takes you on a journey through love, lust and pure, unadulterated eroticism. Honestly 5 ⭐️'s just aren't enough in my opinion for this collection and if I could I would give many more as this is truly fabulous. ...more

The naughty, intense imagery in this book lives up to its name. P.J. doesn't disappoint in bringing the action. My favorites include the bold and blunt 'I Give In', the subtle 'Jealous Rainbows' and 'Lost Bride', to the XXX 'Orgy' and 'Restraint'. A must read, with candles and wine, of course!
