Girls Who Bite is an anthology of lesbian vampire erotica.
First of all I want to explain I am not a lesbian nor have I ever read a lesbian themed book. But let me tell you something- none of that matters at all. Girls Who Bite is one incredible read.
I was impressed how each story was so different in time and place, yet they all seamlessly belonged together. Every story could have been a stand alone novel and I found myself wishing each was was longer.
There were 15 stories and I can honestly say I loved each and every one. And while I want to write a great review for this book, I don’t want to give any of it away. Each story was a surprise that I thoroughly enjoyed, including the hot sex. When I would start a new story I’d be excited, ready to see what was next.
I will tell you my favorite story from this book was titled “The Gift of Lilith” by Myla Jackson. I have never read a story that touched my heart as much as this did. Ms Jackson has managed to write the most romantic, touching story of true love I’ve ever read. This story does have some sad elements to it, but it really got to me.
I’d highly recommend this book to everyone straight, lesbian, bi, it doesn’t matter. There are stories here that you need to read and experience.
And a final note regarding the editor Delilah Devlin. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say she is borderline genius for putting together this fantastic lineup of stories. I truly hope she will consider putting out a volume two.
