As with most anthologies, there were some of these stories that I liked better than others, but overall I enjoyed reading all six tales.

(Just a short note for each one):

A.D. 2203: Adam and Eve By Ravyn Wilde (4 stars)
I really enjoyed the futuristic aspect of this book. Male weres can ony detect their mate's scent during the full moon. Females that don't want to be mated lock themselves up in safe rooms during the full moon, because if a male smells his mate, he can claim her whether she likes it

Anthology. 3 out of 6 stories were good. Of the ones I didn't like, I could only finish Lani Aames' story. If you're a Ravyn Wilde fan and are reading the series this short story is part of, you'll want this anthology. The other Lora Leigh and Doreen DeSalvo stories appear to be stand alones.

1. Joshua 4.0 by Sahara Kelly. A few samples of the reason I couldn't finish this short story are as follows: "Holy motherboard!" "That was one relationship that had promptly developed a 404 Error. File not

Wow, hot and sexy.

Joshua 4.0 by Sahara Kelly - A female computer geek's sexual fantasy with a Virtual Reality hunk goes from virtual to actual reality. Sexy and funny.

Barbarian by Kate Douglas - Futuristic. A woman's need for revenge leads her to kidnap and torture he man she believes is responsible for her sister's death comes unraveled when she realizes she has captured the wrong man. Two years later they are both haunted by the event and their need for each other brings them back together.

This blend of hot futuristic and paranormal erotica romance novellas is a cave full of sexy fun.

"She'd finally been approved as a client to receive the beta version of the "model Man" software--the 101X unit--for home testing. And now she'd gotten her very own Joshua 4.0."
So begins Shara Kelly's tale, Joshua 4.0. A fun creative romp with a female graphic artist, Andy and the actual Joshua , the inventor of the fully interactive graphics system who had sent it out for beta testing connect through

Joshua 4.0 by Sahara Kelly: (4.0 Stars) At first I thought that her style of writing was kind of odd. And the analogies to computer terms were just weird. But I stuck with the story and realized that that was what had made it so interesting. Kelly’s writing style is very creative and very different from what I was use to. If you take it with a grain of salt and not expect to read an intense plot, it’s actually a humorous, quick read. Very cute.

Barbarian by Kate Douglas: (4.0 Stars) Anyone who ha

6 novellas in one book. And I mean there are 6 different stories to read. But, yes, they all include sex scenes. If I add my review points and divide it by 6 I get 2,5 and since you cant give half stars I decided to give the book a three as an overall rating.

3. Joshua 4.0, written by Sahara Kelly is set in the near future. Its a fun story about the cyber world and thing that can happen when you connect your self to a computer.

2. Barbarian written by Kate Douglas was really bad in my eyes. It s

I finally dug this out and finished it

Truthfully? Thank God most of them were short. All are paranormal to some extent.

Tale the first gave me flashbacks from Demolition Man and the sex helmets
The second? Em, if he no longer wanted revenge, why bother with sexual torture for 14 HOURS?!
The third - you discover the guy you had the hots for is a werewolf and you just...hop on pop
The fourth -ok, I would have liked to see this one expanded. I can't see that law working long term as I'm sure someone wo

This book is very hard to review. Since it's an anthology, and written by many authors, the submissions vary. Some were ho-hum, and some were err... explosive. What made me give it only a 3 star rating was the writing. I am not a writer--just a fan and avid reader. I don't know what makes writing particularly good-it should just pull me in and I forget I'm reading-almost like virtual reality experience! Some of the writing in this book reminded me of a sputtering car that just couldn't get going ...more

Hot, hot, and more hot. The stories vary in genre, but they are all steaming hot romances.

Manimal by Lani Aames

All the stories other than Lani Aame's Manimal (D+) earned "B" level grades from me.

J'ai pas du tout accroché à cette anthologie, je l'ai trouvé très fade, tout ces auteurs peuvent faire beaucoup mieux.

wow this book got me hot under the collar. I don't know how many more times I'm going to read this book but I know it's going to be a lot.
It only had one story I liked the others were too obvious with where they were going.

Read most of the stories separately, nice and steamy though.

*edit: I often reread Amelia's Journey by Lora Leigh. Tbh it's my favorite erotica ever. Solely based on the steam factor.

Several different kinds of really sexy reads, with computer programmers, futuristic worlds, a werewolf shifter, and a world familiar with vampires and all kinds of Others. Good read!!

I really enjoyed the stories, especially the uniqueness of each one. Fun read!

I'm really rather boring... Honestly. I live a pretty hum-drum life as a wife and mother. I shop at the local supermarket and use coupons now and again. See? Boring stuff.

I live in Virginia now, so I am learning all kinds of new things - such as being able to buy beer and wine along with bread and toothpaste. Wow!

Having been born and raised in England, I do possess a well-developed feel for the En

Gee, Kels, I didn’t know you believed in the weatherman. Do you still believe in Santa and the Tooth Fairy, too? How about the Easter Bunny?
