Review for She's on Top by Rachel Kramer Bussel

She's on Top is an erotic story collection about female dominance and male submission. It is edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel.

so obviously i did not get this book from my local library. (although how cool would that be if the library had an erotica section!) instead, i bought it from my local sex shop. see, those places aren't always seedy or only carry toys. you can get literature there too. and i got to say this is one of the best erotica books i have ever read. sometimes i can appreciate the stories without getting hot and bothered but this book seriously had me feeling some kind of way...and that way was horny.

i loved every single story except one. The Queening Chair by Kate Dominic was not good to me. it read more as a funny story than a erotic one. i kept laughing as the "Queen" was describing all the great head she was getting to her boyfriend. Room 2201 was definitely one of my favorites. i liked the use of humiliation and the guy on guy action. Why Can't I Be You? was also great, although too short for me to fully enjoy the story. gender bending erotica might be something i have to look into since that story interested me so much.

i have made it a personal mission to buy every single BDSM book published by Cleis. they have the best authors writing the best stories of this stuff. i'm glad that i can add this book to my growing collection.

Review for Serving Him by Rachel Kramer Bussel

Serving Him: Sexy Stories of Submission is an erotic short story collection edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel.

a free copy of this book was given to me by Rachel Kramer Bussel for an honest review

as always i am very late on writing my review. i can't remember the exact deadline i had but i'm sure it's long gone by now. anyway i really liked this book a lot. i have many of Bussel's BDSM books that she's edited and this is one of my favorites. i mostly liked the stories in the middle of the book, that's always where the juicy stuff is. the little slices of life you glimpse in this book make me wanna live the lifestyle. these books are always my escape from my real life into a fantastical one.

Most of the stories were okay, others were amazing, and only one didn't grab my attention. "Under Direction" was not doing it for me. i liked the story but the sub was annoying the hell outta me. i could have done without that one.

the other ones i really liked were:
Coffee Break - Kristina Wright
Chattel - Errica Liekos
The Letter - Tiffany Reisz
Tackling Jessica - Maxine Marsh
Safe, Sane, and Consensual - Ariel Graham
Pinky - Kissa Starling
Duo - J.Sinclare
Subbing - Rachel Kramer Bussel

i have to say "Tackling Jessica" and "Subbing" were my favorites. those were the only stories i reread after i finished the book. i am looking forward to reading even more from Bussel and the erotic world of submission.
