Ladylit publishing is amazing and the authors that submit work for their anthologies are wonderful! I've learned about so many other authors I've enjoyed simply because of the anthologies Ladylit releases. I've given a very short review on each story below but just know that I enjoyed them ALL!

Roses and Thorns by Annabeth Leong: This was one of my favorites of the anthology. I really enjoy boxing so this story was multi-faceted for me.

The Opposite of Darkness by Harper Blis

No one does anthologies as well as Lady Lit! Cheyenne Blue brings us the latest edition. There are fifteen stories in this tomb. Many of the authors I was familiar with but there were a few that are new to me. None of the stories are less than really good. These stories were beautifully written with good flow and interesting characters. The book ran me through a gauntlet of emotions. I laughed, cried and there were a whole lot of Awwww moments not to mention the sizzling sexy bits! I

An interesting cross section of " first time" stories. Some will get the blood pounding more than others but I enjoyed them all!

Let me begin by admitting I’m biased. Ideally, a reviewer should approach her task with no preconceived opinions about a book (although I suspect that’s rare in practice), but when I pick up a book with Cheyenne Blue’s name on the cover, I expect it to be great. Given my prior experience with Cheyenne’s work, I can’t help myself. Of course, this sort of bias can be a double-edged sword. If the book turns out to be less than stellar, I might subject it to harsher criticism than a random volume fr ...more

I Like the introduction. Well written.

Roses and Thorns by Annabeth Leong was kinda HOT.

The Opposite of Darkness by Harper Bliss was a good story, but I would have liked to read Erica's description of watching Lauren climaxing for the first time.

The Talkies by Jeremy Edwards - I didn't really enjoy this story. The wording was just a bit too formal for me.

Before the Bus Comes by Tamsin Flowers was VERY HOT!

Whole Again by Brenda Murphy was a beautiful story.

Pulling by Sacchi Green was a fun story.

Well what an introduction, just loved that and now I am ready to dive into some amazing stories
ROSES AND THORNS......Loved it. This first story sure lacks a punch, sorry for the terrible pun. Full on and fast paced. I feel exhausted from first the fight then the sex. Loved it
THE OPPOSITE OF DARKNESS............Truly a sensory feast. A definite 5 star + rating.
THE TALKIES...........a step back to a time of movies coming into their own. An actress with a lively character and a member of the press

I tried desperately to get into the stories. Some held my interest and others just bored me. I think it's the endings. They leave me wondering. I got about half way through and could not read anymore.

This book is a quite delightful collection of 15 F/F romance stories. Although they are by different authors, you will enjoy them all. XOXOXOs to the editor, Cheyenne Blue, for selecting them and also for writing Amelia:)

Shelves: l-words
Detailed score: 2.75

The linking theme of this anthology (firsts) drew me in and was conceptualised in creative ways by the various authors. In fact, I think some of the authors tried to apply the theme almost too cleverly, to the detriment of the storytelling - hence my score. There were three stories that particularly drew me in and left me wanting more [Before the Bus Comes - Tamsin Flowers, The Sum of Our Parts - Andi Marquette and first timer Ivy Newman with The First Peonies.] However there

Good mix of stories and authors. Enjoyed the stories by Annabeth Leong, Jeremy Edwards and Cheyenne Blue the best, and adored "Sea" by Rosie Bower. Overall a great anthology.

G’day and welcome. I’m Cheyenne Blue. I mainly write lesbian romance and erotica, but other things creep in from time to time depending on what jumps into my head.

My most recent novel is All at Sea a lesbian romance about a yacht's captain and an inadvertent stowaway.

I'm the author of seven other lesbian romances including my Girl Meets Girl series set mainly in outback Australia, and my tennis r
