Some of these stories were good. Most were mediocre. This is great if you're in the mood for sexy short stories but I'm sure there are other anthologies that are better. If you really like fairy tell re-tellings this might be for you.

Oh yeah. You read that right. Erotica. Hey, I mention it in my policy that I'll have one of these every once in a while. But like catching Britney Spears acting civilized, the sighting is rare.

I am really out of my comfort zone with this one. Why did I select it for review? Because they were re-imagined fairy tales. I expected a little more plot with my porn but chalk that up to my own naivety with the genre. Especially in short stories, you're not reading erotica for the plot.

But I'm a little a

Pardon me while I take a cold shower. This was my first foray into "real" erotic fiction and I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. The fantastical element was interesting, with each story interpreting a different fairy tale (with varying degrees of success), and they were, for the most part, surprisingly well-written. Not gonna tell you which were my favorites though...that's insight into my psyche I don't want you to have. ;-) Looking forward to reading more of Alison Tyler's compilations.

Title - Alison's Wonderland

Author - Alison Tyler (Editor)

In these pages you will find a red-haired girl with a broken down car on her way to grandmother's house; Snow-white entertaining her seven roommates; Cinderella after the ball and the three Billy goats gruff and a rather reserved Mrs. Troll. These and many more re-imaginings of classic tales.

A collection of erotic stories, mixed with hints of classic fantasy and paranormal stories so familiar to us as Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella, Vampires, Mermaids, Faeries ... etc.

What attracted me to this book was the title "Alison's Wonderland." By the title I had no idea what kind of book it was, but obviously by the cover I knew it would be an erotic book.

I'm not used to read this kind of books, but If one word could explain how is was reading it would be: WOW!. Yeah, this book left me s

I've never ever liked fairy tales. So I was a bit nervous to write for this book but pretty curious to read it. And I know I"m in it, so you'd say my view is skewed. You'd be wrong. Extracting my own story (which I never read in print) I loved Alison's Wonderland. There were so many stories that stood out for wildly varied reasons. From dark to fun to intensely sexy to sweet. It ran the gamut.

Bottom line, these are the kind of fairy tales I can get on board with. It turns out I was reading the

I read the ARC of this collection of erotic short stories which I received from This was my first ever e-ARC and I enjoyed that experience as much as I enjoyed the book. Most of these stories are based on fairy tales of fantasy motifs and they are oh so steamy. While I’ve enjoyed most of the collections that I’ve read by Alison Tyler this one is the best. Almost every story is a winner and the best are “The Three Billys” by Sommer Marsden, “Fool’s Gold” by Shanna Germain, and “The ...more

Alison's Wonderland is an erotica anthology of reimagined fables and myths. Sadly, I apparently don't have the literary background to actually identify the fables in most of these stories, but that's okay, I had a lot of fun reading them.

I read the ebook version. There were some minor formatting issues, but overall it was well-edited, typo free, and generally a pleasure.

Take a bit of magic, a bit of folklore, a bit of darkness, a bit of humor, and quite a few bits of naughty and shake them all up. That’s what you get with Alison’s Wonderland.

It caught my eye because I had just finished talking about how much I tend to like recreated fairy tales in the paranormal genre. This is my first “erotica” novel, but it’s not really a novel. It’s a collection of (very) short stories inspired by myths and fairy tales.

Now, I’ve read my fair share of romance novels (mostly
