I have nothing against orgasms. Indeed, I’m willing to admit, with tongue firmly in cheek, that coming is one of life’s peak experiences. Nevertheless, sex offers a myriad of joys aside from climaxes. A narrow focus on “getting off”, a single-minded striving for release, can distract you from those other delights. Hence I was a bit concerned that an erotica anthology whose theme was the “big O” might turn out to be limited and shallow.

Fortunately, this is not the case. The stories in Coming Soon

Rachel’s erotica collections always have enough variety and creativity to satisfy pretty much everyone - that is, there’s bound to be some stories that get you hot - but this one is full of sooo many excellent tales that I think there was maybe only *one* that didn’t really do it for me! The focus on and celebration of pure, unadulterated female sexual pleasure in all of these stories is a refreshing theme; if only all of our society was so concerned with women’s orgasms!!

As always, the stories

It's always a welcome erotic adventure when Rachel releases a new collection of short stories from various authors. This edition continues her sensual journey with exciting tales to tantalize your imagination and tickle your fantasies. This almost tutorial collection of feminist orgasmic variety is sure to stimulate new erotic fantasies each authors stimuli manifest how individual we all are. A genuine mind opener to all there is available to ones imagination in achieving self satisfaction.

Should be called Coming NOW!
Wow, this collection was hotter than I expected! I tend to like more intense/extreme erotica anthologies such as BDSM and “taboo” experiences(I love all erotic though) and this collection brings the intensity for sure which was very welcomed!

Also there is disability rep, non binary rep and characters that are people of color (which I appreciate).

What I really enjoyed were how there were so many different types of characters and each story showed how different stimu

Not so softcore and not very hard core. This was a collection of short erotic stories of many women. It was a something for everything package. Erotic stories of women seeking pleasure in different ways. Each story creates a different excitement. Short and engaging stories.

Well written and steamy. Although there was one story which I was imagining to be a guy on girl action untill use of multiple "she" instead of "he" got me all confused. Another thing, most stories didn't have an introduction a

I really like the work Rachel Kramer Bussel curates. My favorites are her releases on submission. This title, Coming Soon, has a little something for everyone. Not every tale resonated with me and there were some I simply skimmed over. While I would suggest additional chapters – the beauty of these types of anthologies is learning new things about your own sexuality from others. Thank you to NetGalley and Cleis Press for allowing me to read an advanced copy of this book.

I should stay away from these books. They are short snippets. And sometimes I want more and other times less. You also have to jump styles of writing. I always am disappointed, Many were very hot and others just fell short, for sure each story got a big O.

Received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.

When it comes to erotic collections, Ms. Bussel as the editor means that it is a must read book for me. Usually I go for her bondage and kinkier stories because I tend to lean that direction. This time, I'm just testing out the more vanilla erotica and ... I can tell the difference. The stories are all well written. Only the kinkier ones caught my attention.

I got an ARC of this book from Cleis Press.

I was won over by the email titled “coming soon is coming soon”. I snorted and knew this book would be for me.

I was let down though. The book wasn’t what I expect from Cleis. This was not softcore and it was not hardcore. It was that mediumcore area that doesn’t seem to actually have a name. It ranged from masturbation to sex with a partner. A majority of the book was straight which was also not something I

These aren't gauzy soft-core stories, but they aren't grinding, raunchy hard-core offerings either. They are well written, thoughtful, and good humored medium-core of the best sort. There is a surprising range of interests represented. Some involve couples taking a walk on the wild side; many involve women taking chances and taking charge. There are surprises - a good-natured and upbeat tale of sexual renewal in an assisted living facility comes to mind. As expected we get a good help

Thank you to both NetGalley and expecially to Xpress Book Tours for an ARC of the delightfull collection titled Coming Soon.

This erotic collection, put together by Rachel Kramer Bussel, focuses on the female orgasm. And on the many ways it can be achieved. The settings differ from a retirement home (proving that sexual exploration doesn’t have a fixed upper age), an art gallery photography session in Paris, quarantining apart while maintaining a healthy sex life and many more.

Short one handed reads that focus on women's fantasies. I guess it would be better to read one of these and say, yup I have had that type of experience?

There are many varied fantasies here with many to ignite a few ideas. The editing is sharp and you can tell by the way the stories are tight and pace in largely the same way without making the stories themselves feel cookie cutter.

There is a wide representation of folk; trans folk, elderly, post motherhood, kink, and trauma all make an appearan

Thank you to NetGalley for this copy of the book!


Writing erotica is always a coin toss. You never know what you're getting because every person and their sexuality is different. This book is a compillation of many short stories from many different authors, guaranteeing that there is something for everyone and every taste.

Short and steamy, not so soft and not so hardcore. These stories covered many fantasies, situations and possibilities in ways sure to find a welcoming reader. With differe

This isn't what I expected. The one story about the old lady having sex was a total turn off for me. I'm 33 and the thought of people my Nana's age having sex is a gross visual. There were a couple stories I had a hard time reading because I didn't understand. One kept saying we, making me think it was a couple or a person with multiple personalities. I can't concentrate on a story if I'm trying to figure out how to visualize someone. If I don't know if it's a him or her it makes it hard. One ta ...more

I received a complimentary copy of Coming Soon in exchange for an honest review. I really enjoyed the variety and the length of stories. Each short story "hit the ground running." Of course some were better then others. I enjoy reading erotica genres, but this was a little vanilla compared to what I've read for this genre in the past. Still a great option if you don't have a lot of time to read an entire novel in one sitting, or are looking for some variety. ...more

I was impressed by the incredible writing each author had. They each had their own style but left nothing to the imagination in a good way! They did an amazing job with the collection of stories. I enjoyed each story. It definitely got me "hot and bothered " at times - ha! I did not want this book to end and I look forward to reading more from Rachel. If you want to read some stories that will have you wanting more then you have come to the right book to read! Woo wee yassss 🔥🔥😍❤ ...more

2/5 stars!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advance copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

"Remote vibrations" is my favorite and yet I still think it should be longer. The other short stories did not pique my interest and most have pacing issues and could've paced well for me to appreciate the stories even more.

Wow was this little compilation SPICY! I was 100% here for it though. I loved "Coming Soon" (pun intended with that title) so much! The short stories were the perfect length to read before bed and they reeled me in instantly. No need for verbal foreplay here, let's just dive right in! 10/10 would recommend to anyone! Even Grandma's, there's a story in here for you too ;) ...more

This was a very comprehensive collection that has a little something for everyone. The stories are well-written and engaging from all different perspectives. It is inclusive of all gender identities and expressions and sexual orientation. There is no judgment or expectations of what they “should” want or enjoy during sex.

I received a complimentary copy of Coming Soon from NetGalley.  Opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

A few of the short stories were interesting, but none were really memorable. The topics were extremely varied, so some were really not for me. I suppose they were pretty well written, though.

A little something for everyone. I didn't care for the stories set in Covid times, because it's too soon and I wanted some escapism, but the authors found creative ways to incorporate quarantine.

Thanks to Netgalley, the publisher, and the author for the ARC to review. All opinions are my own.

Love reading any anthology edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel. Always an interesting, varied collection of authors and their stories. There’s some incredibly sexy, steamy short stories in this collection. Such a great way to discover new authors. Highly recommend.

A “something for everyone” collection of erotic short stories that is sure to bring some spice to your life.

A short, steamy and fun read. That covers a broad spectrum of eroticism from bdsm to self love and acceptance. A sexually empowering read.
Emi Yoshida
These provocative shorts range from the mundane to the highly specific, but every woman is sure to find something here she identifies with. Single or not, of whatever age, new mom, trans, Covid-19 locked down, inhibited, or what have you, this book delivers on its promise.

I should admit that I skipped a couple that didn't quite grab my attention. And also I could have done without the quarantine reminders; personally I feel that, in the long run, mentioning it will just end up dating the stories.

Besides that, it's another great collection of stories about women taking matters into there own hands (literally or not) and getting what they truly want. Somehow that's still a rare thing to find in books, so anthologies like this are a refreshing break, and for me much
