Rosalie's review posted at Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews

This book was a compilation of 20 mini stories, from a multitude of authors, that covered almost every female erotic fantasy imaginable (and some that you haven't even thought of that WILL make you go hmmmmm).

I will say that this book is EXTREMELY hard to write a review for. With such short stories though, I was able to become fully engrossed in ALL of them, before they finished. This read varied with topics from dom/sub, threesomes, indivi

A collection of (mostly) not so very hot stories.

I received an advance copy of this collection in exchange for an honest review. Fair warning: this is my first time receiving an advanced copy like this.

Overall, in terms of mastery of the craft combined with the variety of stories presented, I am giving this collection five stars. "Leo Rising" by Suleikha Snyder stood out to me as highly intimate and supremely sexy, with careful attention on the second person point of view.

There's something for everyone here. I think it would be wildly sexy f

I received an advanced reader copy from the editor in exchange for an honest review, and I am so glad that I did! I read this in its entirety during a long road trip and it kept me wide awake and wishing it wouldn't end. Each break I took from reading made me wish for more. The various authors portrayals of the longing a person can feel when they want something so much they absolutely have to have it were so satisfying. The realistic, well-written scenarios about the fulfillment of fantasies and ...more

Actual rating: 3.7 stars.

Alright, so normally as I read these anthologies, I put down a rating for each story in my status updates. This book was no exception. The overall rating comes from the average rating of all the stories. Each little story has its own quick little blurb concerning my feelings about that story.

Here goes:

"Symphony" - Fantastic. 5 Stars. A COMPLETELY original twist on erotica. Something I have never seen done before, and DONE WELL! 100% sexy.

"Tabitha the Cat" - 4 Stars. Not

Okay erotica

It wasn't as hot as I thought it would be but it was enjoyable none the less. It does have a wide range of story types but the main theme carried through out is that all women are unique and beautiful no matter what they look like or what they desire.

Review crossposted to Torrance Sené.

Begging For It includes 21 stories are pure, unadulterated lust. Here we delve into the minds of women and get a sampler of what we fantasize about. You know, the things we only whisper to our girlfriends and our partners have to (usually, but not always) worm from us. This anthology offers bold women, timid ladies, and everyone between while also delivering a little taste of something for everyone—bondage, public sex, humiliation, pegging, exhibitionism,

I just finished reading Rachael Kramer Bussel’s collection of short stories she edited and have to share my love and excitement over these stories. The book is called “Begging for It” and contains 21 torrid stories of erotica. The book says it is erotic fantasies for women, but I found them just as stirring as a male reader. While the word begging is in the title, don't think these are all submissive females on their knees. These are a mix of strong women all seeking some sort of satisfaction an ...more

Rachel is my go to for kinky anthology reads. I have a heard time putting them down because the stories are so interesting and good. It could be used a some kind of play book for constructing a nice bdsm scene.

Another great anthology from the wonderful Ms. Bussel. There’s a little bit of everything in this erotic anthology so anyone should be able to find quite a few morsels that they enjoy. If you enjoy stories of submission, don’t hesitate to pick this one up!

I received an ARC of this anthology from the author in exchange for my honest review.
