Brainycat's 5 Bs:

This is a fun little collection of mostly forgettable dark stories with adult themes. I wouldn't necessarily call them all 'erotic', as that's generally used for highbrow smut explicit and arousing sexuality, but all of these stories involve sexuality and relationships. The vast majority of the stories have explicit sex, and most are explicitly violent.

Two stories in particular stand out for me: Magna Mater by

Recommends it for: All the Erins in my life.
Recommended to Holly by: Steve Niles & Dark Delicacies
The absolute truth is that I picked this up purely because my friend has a story in it that features one of my favorite characters. I do not harbor a secret love for vampire porn, and even after reading this, I don't think I'm going to. Still, it was entertaining, sort of, although I definitely had the most fun with the Cal McDonald story. 'What Scares You' was also a nicely well-written interlude.

the first storie was great.
the elevator one was just plain weird.
13 locks was gross but awsome if a bit predictable.
stories 4 and 5 were so bad I couldn't read them.
mile high club was predictable
and the last three were good.

A nice collection of short stories that are more erotic than horror. Recommended

I am not typically a horror fan, but I liked this book alot. All of the stories were quirky, unique and fresh. Being able to check it out from the library as a ebook was a real plus too.
