Best Women’s Erotica edited by Violet Blue is one of the best known erotica series out there. Writers clamour to get between the pages of these books, and rightly so. Best Women’s Erotica 2012 is a collection of 18 erotic stories, catering to a variety of different tastes. With stories from big names such as K D Grace, Elizabeth Coldwell, Kay Jaybee, Jacqueline Applebee, Sommer Marsden, and Donna George Storey, I was looking forward to a luscious read.

On the whole, this is what I got. Naturally, with so many different writers, you will get many different writing styles.  Some of these I didn’t like, and ended up skipping stories because they just weren’t doing anything for me. The others, however, were smokin’ hot! Particular favourites of mine were The Nylon Curtain by Elizabeth Coldwell and Neighborly Relations by Dorianne — both very filthy, and Elizabeth’s tale was especially kinky and unique. Brilliant.

Overall, Best Women’s Erotica is definitely worth a read for erotica fans, because the standout stories are so enjoyable. And of course because people’s opinions differ, others may well adore the stories I disliked. It’s always the way with anthologies! In my opinion, though, this isn’t the best volume of Best Women’s Erotica out there.
