Let’s just be thankful that I’m in my forgiving mood, or I would have condemn this book just for the cover alone. You see, ‘ With This Ring, I Thee Be Wed’ is an erotica. Yes, you’re reading this right. It’s an erotica. Don’t be fooled by the sweet, innocent appearance of the book. You’d be extremely surprised if you’re expecting a sweet, innocent and all warm and fuzzy romance out of this one. Be

As a happily married person myself, I always find it refreshing to read stories involving happily married couples. If those stories are erotic, it’s even better!
Alison Tyler has put together a fantastic collection of short stories that star married couples in some hot situations.
With This Ring I Thee Bed has something for everybody. Stories feature role playing, ménage (plus one), bdsm, and much much more.
Some of the stories I liked better than others. Some really stood out to me. One in particu

This is my first foray into Alison Tyler territory, though for a while there I had my eye on (and still do) her book Alison’s Wonderland. With This Ring I Thee Bed is an erotic anthology all centered around the general theme of weddings. And smut. Glorious, unbridled smut. There’s something in here for everyone, be it traditional or kinky (and everything in between).

I enjoyed most of the short stories, but my particular favorite was Racing to the Altar by Sommer Marsden. It involved a speeding b

This collection of 25 Erotic Romance stories are, as the title suggests, written around the theme of marriage, especially weddings. Since there's so much in the way of sexual undercurrents around weddings and marriage, it's a perfect theme.

There are stories on the bride and groom getting naughty just before the ceremony starts; stories of the bachelor and hen's night and the honeymoon; and one great story about a marriage about to end in divorce that gets a timely second chance. Most of the aut

Alison Tyler brings us a collection of wedding stories that appeals to every person. There is definitely something for everyone in one, some, or all of the stories put together. This extraordinary collection of erotica celebrates the institution of weddings, marriage, and the love between two(or more) people in all its forms, from passionate and sweet to the intense longing for sexual desire.

The beauty of this anthology is that not one story is the same. It's about one per
Isn't it a beautiful cover? So sweet and innocent, but if you are familiar with Alison Tyler, you know what's inside isn't.

If you are looking for erotic romance, this is your book. With This Ring, I Thee Bed is a collection of short hot stories by different authors, focused on weddings, with lots of naughty and provocative sex, and usually a happy ending. Some of the stories were too much for me, but I still enjoyed them.

I have only read Alison's Wonderland edited by Alison Tyler and really like

Recommends it for: Fans of erotica,
Don't be fooled by the cover! This compilation of sexy, seductive stories smashes the stereotypical wedding day fantasies. From the first short story to the last, this book shows over and over again that just because you're a blushing bride doesn't mean you can't be the sultry temptress we all have lurking inside us. From the fun and flirty to the hot and kinky, there is something for everyone in this collection.

Included are stories of fantasies played out, multiple partnerships, menage trois, B

I really enjoy short stories. This was a large collection of ~10 page stories centering on a wedding theme. As usualy with anthologies, it was a bit hit and miss. In the end, though I went with a grade of 4, because there were some real standouts for me.

My favorites include:
Racing to the Altar by Sommer Marsden
A Lucky Wedding by Thomas S. Roche
Forsaking All Others by Janine Ashbless-
Strippers and Cigars by N.T. Morley
Something Blue by Shanna Germain-
Anniversary Waltz by Portia Da Costa

Some of the stories in this book were sexy, some were very forgettable, all of them were very, very short. It's hard to really love a book when each story is under 20 pages long. I liked the premise and characters of several of them, and would have liked to have been able to read more. Kind of lightweight in terms of erotic reading, though.

This book is filled with stories that center around weddings. Some of them are sweet, some are funny, some are sad, but all of them are full of sexy fun. There are also every conceivable pairing of people along with any situations. All in all it was a fun read!
