signalling the partnership may become longer term There are twenty stories in total and not every story will appeal to every taste, but there are sure to be some that strike your fancy Here s a brief look at some of the ones I enjoyed Take the Shot by Mica Kennedy The fairy queen as Dominatrix, her trickster king tamed, in her thrall It s hot as hell A sexy BDSM photo shoot with a dirty Midsummer s Night s Dream scenario is the backdrop for this short story Nina is a forty something professor doing a favor for her photographer sister She gets to revel in her sexy side as a buxom woodland nymph though she initially is discomfited to discover that her co model is none other than her mid twenties teaching assistant Josh When she finds out Josh is transferring out of her department it eases her conscience and lets her let loose She d always been attracted to him, and the feeling is mutual Following the shoot they indulge in a passionate encounter and make the decision to explore something I loved seeing Nina get out of her comfort zone and be reminded that not every man wants a model thin waif Josh thinks she s gorgeous just as she is, whether enhanced by makeup and sexy costumes or just being herself It s a reminder that beauty is in the eye of the beholder Oh Captain, My Captain By Calliope BloomFancy a Halloween party This one turns out to be the X rated kind when Angie picks up her friend Sophia and Sophia s boyfriend Kai for a night out that lets her explore some of her kinky fantasies Angie is bi sexual and she and Sophia have been friends since college, but she d never admitted her attraction for fear of losing Sophia s friendship On the way home from their first party they stop at a huge yacht that s hosting a party of its own and sneak on board They find an empty stateroom and when Sophia asks if there is something Angie wants to do but has been too scared to ask for, Angie finally gets up the nerve to tell her Okay, I said and took a deep breath I would want to kiss you From there it comes out that Sophia and Kai have an open relationship and they are game for some fun Sexy times are in order, and when the captain of the boat discovers them, she joins in for some extra BDSM adventures Ahoy captain Their threesome becomes a foursome and everyone leaves for home satisfied It s a fun, enjoyable and super steamy read The Pick me up by Suleikha SnyderFor Aleja, a margarita at The Hanged Man at the end of a long, lousy day is supposed to be the nightcap but regular bar patron Conn with his ginger hair and Irish accent is capturing her attention than usual In fact, this night she notices about him, specifically his thoughtfulness in a couple of situations where she d have expected of his normal brash obnoxiousness Then a verbal game of one up man ship leads to an alley encounter and He tasted like drunkenness and impulse She arched up on her toes to match it with relative sobriety and not so relative poor judgment I loved this one Aleja and Conn give to each other as good as they get and they are well matched both in and out of the bedroom The story ends with the likelihood that it s just the start for this couple Belonging by Tamsen ParkerExploring a kink club for the first time, Glory is nervous but determined Her fantasies of being on her knees for someone, but that someone respecting and caring for her in return are ones she s finally drummed up the courage to do something about And lucky for her, Constance is there to set her at ease and give her what she asks for She s right here, offering this thing to me, or maybe opening a door, gesturing for me to come inside I want to cross the threshold, see if I could belong here too If you ve read any of the author s Compass series, you ll have seen mention of Glory and Constance, and this is their origin story They are a longtime committed Domme sub couple in the series, and I really enjoyed reading their first meeting and how Glory discovers that yes, this is what she s been looking for Words with Benefits by Tamara Lush For fifty two year old divorced professor Jennifer, meeting men in the world of online dating has so far been a dud, until she tries the Words with Benefit s app When a mutual acquaintance, a professor at her university in a different department and of a similar age pings her on the app, it s the start of some fun games, and a date in the real world What starts out as drinks leads to a night on Gabriel s boat.Jennifer takes an interest in the ropes he has, and his proficiency with knots, to which Gabriel says I ve never used it for non nautical things His voice was rough, with undertones of dark desire But I d be interested in experimenting And so they discover a mutual interest in bondage kink and a satisfying sexual encounter is likely to lead to I really enjoyed this one, with two adults having been in previous relationships willing to take the risk of jumping back into the dating pool and finding they ve made the right choice Essential Qualities by Alyssa ColeAn interesting future awaits if Alyssa Cole s story is any indication of what will come next in our search for the perfect companion What does it mean that I was born of a human mother and father and that he was designed to my own specifications, down to his golden brown skin and tight black curls In this story scientist Annika has created the perfect man for her, a humanoid robot Ian indistinguishable from a human on the street Society is undecided on his existence, with protests mingling with requests for her to clone someone s own loved ones I love

the Year didn t have official themes, but when I was compiling Volume 4, I decided I wanted stories on the themes of Outsiders and Risk While on the surface, those may seem incongruous, both spoke to me regarding current events and seemed urgently relevant At a time when outsiders of many kinds are being ostracized, discriminated against, and shunned, I wanted to explore what being an outsider feels like on a deeply personal level I always want the authors I publish to turn readers on, but this time, I also want to make you think The stories in BWE Volume 4 did indeed make me think, but they also made me smile, made me quiver, and maybe even caused a hot flash or two or three, but who s counting While I found something to enjoy in each short, three in particular stood out and quickly

    6. 4 Quickie this is a collection of very quick 1 2 chapters and the dirty bits Think of this like little naughty scenes by a ton of authors so you can see if you want to pick up a full length novel from one of them I walked into this knowing one author and left with a ton to look into The scenes are all types of scenes from voyeur to BDSM to normal coupling and there is a naughty story for everyone in this yummm


    7. A Sexy and Hot collaboration from all the authors in this anthology I especially loved Tamara Lush s Story It was full of heat and passion What I really loved and enjoyed that is was about a woman who is older looking to experiment.All the authors did a fabulous job Very enjoyable
