Review:

Crank up the air condition or turn on a fan. Ms. Tyler brings to life sexual fantasies involving working men and women readers see in their daily lives. Ms. Tyler brings together a gaggle, herd, pard or is it a murder of authors to tantalize kinky readers. The theme of this book tying every story together are fantasies and hook ups with people in the service industry. Reading the introduction of this book will help make sense of these “classified ads” turned dirty.

There are the usual working men used for fantasy fodder like construction worker, plumber, mechanic or the pool boy. This collection takes it to the next level. Each of the authors takes an occupation and eroticizes it in glorious detail. This is a book to be kept by the bedside table for inspiration into hot sexy roleplay. Every story is kinky in its own way. The stories are tightly written with a clear beginning, exciting climax and satisfying ending. There are different permutations of mf, ff and fm. There are a couple of delicious ménages. For those who enjoy sampling an erotic buffet, this book is catered for you.

My favorite ones are the ones which are harder to find in erotica. Ms. Valenti provides a lovely twist in “Driver’s Seat” with a female chauffer for a newlywed couple. This is a smoking hawt wedding night. This Ffm ménage is a little taste of heaven. The next one to wet my wick is “California Dreamin’” by Ms. Dale. In this short story, the much stereotyped pool boy is actually a pool girl. And this lonely wife enjoys a good time getting more than her pool cleaned by this young sweet worker. The incorporation of a video chat for the wife’s husband kicks up the heat in this tale.

Always a favorite of mine, it is no surprise to find “SM, or How I Met My Girlfriend in a Queer Theater” is written by Ms. Renarde. This one is beautifully written with a plot, conflict and possible public exposure. Both voyeurs and exhibitionists alike will find this one appealing. “Body Work” by Ms. Zane completely caught me off guard. I had to re-read sections of this twice to make sure I was reading the story right. I have to confess, mechanics do not really turn me on. After reading Ms. Zane’s manly mechanic who enjoys being pegged hard by a shy and sexy woman, I am rethinking my stance.

The last story of this delightful collection ends with “Close Shave”. This is a fitting closing tale at it contains the kinky maledom up my alley. I have never stepped foot into a barbershop and now when I pass by one, I will always think of this story. Ms. Tyler has ruined me for hairdressing salons. This is a kinky piece with a dominant barber who knows just how to wield his belt. This collection is fantastic because it opens a reader’s mind to more possibilities. It makes me want to read classified ads and come up with my own little fantasies. This concept is creative and fresh. Recommended for kinky readers who enjoy taking every day scenarios and breathing sex into them.

Review:

While the story is a short novella (referred to by the publisher as a novelette) it is a fairly full story with a good plot, as far as this genre goes. A Dom named Sandy finds, entices and seduces a new sub named Rem, engages his present sub named Vanessa in it, and does not leave anyone on the side lines. It is an enjoyable read, but there were a few things it needed to gain a full 5 star in story, and a few more things needed to gain more than the 3 in sting factor.

The story was obviously a fantasy novel, though there were some good reality touches in it when it came to Sandy explaining himself. But what it lacked was more description in the sex, the kink and the story line. In the beginning we meet someone named Elizabeth and learn a little about her, mainly that she is the one who runs the shop Sandy first meets Rem in, however that is where we are left with. We never learn where how or why Sandy knows Elizabeth and why his behaviors no longer shock her. Is it simply because he has been coming in the shop for so long? Or does she have some inside information? Do they know each other from the sex clubs mentioned later in the story? These are just a few of the desperately dangling questions that are left. We do not get the information on how he met his first sub either. As a short story, small things like this really need to be fleshed out fully; otherwise it leaves a gnawing in the reader to want to know why, how and when. The idea that anyone can simply look at someone and know what they need is a tough sell for anyone who has really lived in the BDSM lifestyle; however as fantasy it is fine.

As for the kink, there was a lot of mentioning it, a few scenes where it was played out in some detail, but much of it was glossing over with the mere idea of it. Some of these things should have been played out further, more detail given; such as an in depth description of exactly how Rem responded in behavior, sound, sight, reaction. There is some description about it, but it just slides over the tip, kind of it like putting on a dab of lube on and doing nothing more. Intimate details about the whole process are given in brief and then the sex scenes which are just as brief. If Alison Tyler had written in more graphic details, it would have been so much hotter. As it is, just as the reader is getting a bit hot under the skirt, it was over. Kind of like a quick swat on the bottom when what one really wants is a good hard whack – or four.

There is one other small point that needs to be addressed. The voice over this entire story was very feminine. It is not until part way into the book that the reader even realizes Sandy is a man, when there is mention of his cock. The words chosen to describe actions, especially sexual actions, tend to differ drastically between a man’s voice and a woman’s voice. There are plenty of male writers who write female characters well and vica-versa, but when reading a first person story that is supposed to be about one sex and it comes off as if it is the other, it effects the reader’s perception going in and it is difficult to readjust once we have an image in our head.

Over all, the story is enjoyable, what detail is there is very good, we do get some feel for the characters that are portrayed on some level at least. It is a good light read, just right for a quickie before bed, but not quite hot enough to pull out the vibrator.

Review:

Who doesn’t love to play, especially with a trusted partner? This book is full of great stories that just happen to have everyday people in them. People that love each other and are in relationships but that does not mean that they cannot have some fun along the way. Dull is not a word that I would use with any of these couples. Each story brings the fun and excitement into the couple’s world and alongside these stories is the author giving readers simple and easy things that they can do themselves to enhance their own sex lives.

Fast paced and fun this book not only gives readers a nice read but also a jumping off point for those who may want to try more in their relationships. These are hot and sexy reads that grab your attention right from the start and have you glued to your seat and turning the pages until the end. I enjoyed the variety of subjects in these stories and found some new authors to check out alongside old favorites. This is not only a hot read but also a great way to start some interaction and communication between couples.

Review:

Bring out your sex toys or make sure your lover is close by. Do not read this book in public. Ms. Tyler’s Sudden Sex book is a steamy hawt read. There is no beating around the bush. There are sixty-nine stories from many different authors. Many of the authors contributed with multiple stories. It is difficult to point out which ones are the best because almost all of them were exquisite.

Each of the stories is well written. They are concise, to the point and erotic. There are a couple I personally didn’t enjoy because I don’t like infidelity stories. These I read and instead of exciting me, it snuffed my arousal in less than a page. For those who like cheating stories, have at it.

The ones which were of most interest to me were the kinky ones. There is a good mix of light to medium kinky stories. The spanking ones are delicious and panty wetting. There is one story which seemed to be a continuation. This is the one I enjoyed the most. It’s the naughty female who masturbates in a book store and gets caught. This one is a lovely build up in sexual heat.  Ms. Tyler does a good job of spreading the story out. The next installment pops up unexpectedly and turns up the heat.

From a collection standpoint, Ms. Tyler does an excellent job of mixing all sorts of sexy styles.  The variety of sexual combination will satisfy a reader who is pansexual. The way the stories are presented is also good. The flow is just right to bring a reader close to the edge of orgasm at each point and then backing off for a bit of breathing room. Then at the end, there is no choice but to pounce on a lover or cram a vibrator in to complete the reader’s sexual frenzy state. The book of naughtiness is perfect for bedtime reading prior to kicking off sexual shenanigans.  Recommended for all erotic readers to use as mental foreplay before the sexual marathon begins.

Blurb:

Alison Tyler, “mistress of literary erotica,” has mined her memoirs, spinning a kinky fairy tale with a happily-ever-after ending. Dark Secret Love is a modern-day Story of O, a 9 1/2 Weeks-style journey fueled by lust, longing and the search for true love. Inspired by her BDSM lifestyle and based on her private diaries, Tyler draws on her twenty-five years’ experience penning sultry stories to create a scorchingly hot work of autobiographical fiction, a meta-novel with reality at the core.

Take a deep breath and get your safe word handy. Alison Tyler will push your boundaries to their limits—and have you begging for more.

Review:

This book brings us a tale of a woman finding herself and what she needs and enjoys. She goes through many men and adventures until she finds the one man who can fulfill her needs. We are along for the ride as she explores and discovers her sex life and more. We get to know many of her inner feelings and are there first hand while she discovers what she likes and dislikes.

This was an intriguing look at a strong woman whom we get to watch grow and explore. Through all her adventures she not only explains what happens but her own feelings and thoughts. Names and places may have been changed but readers still get the feelings that this author is trying to portray. Written in first person it reads as a memoir that it is meant to be almost as if you are privy to her diary. You are pulled into the young girl’s life and watch her blossom into the young woman who finally finds the right man for her.

How do you like your coffee? With a little flogging on the side? Maybe a night of knitting with some really interesting stitches? This anthology edited by Alison Tyler is guaranteed to make every hour of your day memorable.

Whenever I get to read an anthology by Alison Tyler, I know it is going to be hot, well put together and have a searing set of stories that are going to get my blood pumping. Morning, Noon and Night is just such an anthology. Starting with a very nice wakeup call at 4am, each of these 24 stories is a scorcher.Early morning walks of shame, naughty morning habits that make moving day a little more fun, sexy office moments, phone texts that will make you wild, a picnic with friends that has some naughty consequences and more…this anthology will give you heat stroke with the high kink factor.

There are a couple of stories that I have to highlight because they really struck a chord. 5:00 a.m. Walk of Shame by Dante Davidson had me drooling on the pages. Excellent kink . 11:00 a.m. Elevenses by Jeremy Edwards was a moving day that might even make me rethink the horrors of moving if I had that kind of fun in the back of a moving van. Hot! Seven p.m. Kinky Craft Night by Teresa Noelle Roberts was boiling hot sex with some scary yarn bondage that was unforgettable. This girl will never look at her knitting needles quite the same way again. Absolutely wonderful! 3:00 a.m. Last Call by Alison Tyler is a gang bang that is wilder than any ménage I have ever read and I loved every second of it. Kinky to the core, there is a reason she has earned the title Trollop With a Laptop. Alison rocks it. Every time. I could write up every story in this anthology, that’s how much I liked it.

If you are a kinkster, and you love some smexy hotness like I do, then go out and get this book. Morning, Noon and Night will wow you every hour of the day and keep you coming back for more.

It wasn’t that long ago that I wasn’t sure how I felt about anal sex.  I had interest, I had desire, but I also had fear and the pressure from social beliefs that it is wrong and dirty. That last one is kind of a double edged sword, really…I mean wrong and dirty?  Yep, that can definitely equal hot and sexy!  Of course, now I’m definitely a fan of anal sex.  I can’t help but think that if I wasn’t already, after reading this book, I would be interested.

This book is full of stories that range in experience from anal amateurs to anal experts.  And they’re hot stories.  Let me tell you about a few of my favorites.

Something Dirty by Erica Dumas- The main character is a female bartender and while she’s working she sees Trey.  Trey is a biker and lingers through her shift, even helping her with some slightly unruly customers. Once the shift ends she agrees to go for a ride with him and they end up in a secluded location.  This leads to some semi-public sex that involving the use of his motorcycle as a prop.  She gets off during vaginal sex and then again during anal and the whole time she is loving the ‘dirtiness’ of the whole thing.  This story isn’t full of BDSM in a traditional sense but there is an essences of restraint in parts.  I love the hotness of the near-stranger sex in one of the most intimate ways, at least to me.

Sometimes It’s Better to Give by Bryn Haniver- Julie and Gerry have a few weeks to themselves while their kids are away at summer camp.  Julie demands that she wants something different and they decide to go shopping.  She wants to give instead of receive for once and as they’re looking at the toys at the store she becomes inspired.  They end up with 2 strap-ons, one for her husband and one for the babysitter Amber.  Luckily, Amber is completely up for the task.  The night turns into an amazing experiment of  Gerry getting fucked anally and Julie getting to give to both him and Amber.  In the end, everyone ends up in a sweaty orgasm heap…and then Amber sweetly suggests that she get a turn sometime in the next three weeks.  I love how this story brings to light that marriage and kids does not equal the end of adventurous and experimental sex.

Selling Point by Carl Kennedy- Mr. Simmons is in the market for a new house and Michelle is showing him around one that looks promising.  When they got to the basement he discovers a hidden room that contains a St. Andrews cross and a full collection of implements and toys.  Happily, Mr. Simmons finds that  Michelle is flushed and excited by what they find.  Pretty soon, she’s strapped to the cross and they are trying out the different tools they’ve discovered.  This is probably the most BDSM of the stories in the book and it is definitely a lovely treat.

 The Captain’s Walk by Dominic Santi- The main character inherits a bed and breakfast from his godfather that is reportedly haunted by the boat Captain who used to live there.  He doesn’t believe in ghosts but allows the story to perpetuate because it is good for business.  One night, he is roused by this ghost he didn’t believe in and is told to take a wooden phallus and fit it to a chair that is in his room.  He submits his will to the imposing and handsome ghost of the Captain and is slowly trained to take the sizeable phallus anally.  His encounters with the ghost leave him tired, drained in every way and sated.  Eventually he graduates to a different kind of phallus after an encounter that shows the caring side of the Captain and he finds that his godfather left him so much more than just a bed and breakfast. 

Worth It by Alison Tyler- Gina and Byron have been together for a while, long enough that he’s taken the big leap and asked her to marry him…but not with the ring she had picked out.  He actually gave her a ring that cost $500 as opposed to the $12,000 ring he took her to Tiffany’s and let her pick out.  This gets Gina thinking.  There’s something else Byron has been denying her even though he’s done it before himself.  Anal sex.  She’s asked for it, tried to seduce him into it and even gone so far as to beg for it.  His refusal, calling it dirty and beneath Gina while telling her how much it will hurt, only makes her more determined and then eventually leads to fights of frustration.  Finally, Gina decides to take things into her own hands.  All this denial has her wanting the experience even more than she ever has and Byron’s friend Josh seems just the one to give it to her.  She flirts and teases him and Byron never notices.  Finally, they get together and she tells him what she wants..and he gives it to her.  This is when she realizes how wrong Byron was.  In the end, she makes a decision that is best for both of them.  She’s always want what he wasn’t willing to give and that’s no way to live.  

Anal sex isn’t a sex act limited to BDSM but there is definitely an element of submission to it, no matter what the setting.  This is a sex act that is often forbidden and seen as a privilege to many when they get to do it.  So far, my personal experiences with anal sex have been very intimate, while being hot and dirty.  This book makes me think about and kind of crave something more, something on the next level in the anal sex forum.  Which saying that makes me laugh and wonder what that even means, but the point is this book isn’t just hot, it will get your mind rolling on ideas of the fun and depraved things you can do.

When you first started writing, did you have any idea you’d be writing BDSM/kinky books? Do you write in any other genre?

Close your eyes and imagine that you’re back in a time before wifi. (Oh, wait. If you close your eyes, you won’t be able to read this interview. Damn.) I was going to try to set the scene for you, to paint the image of what the world was like when I first started writing smut.

Basically, in the pre-internet days of my youth, there were not a lot of choices as far as erotic titles. I devoured The Story of O, The Pearl, the Beauty Books, Justine, Anais Nin… and then I found Blue Moon’s interesting collection of edgy titles and read every one that Tower Records had in stock.

When I finally picked up a Bic and took a stab, I never thought of what I wrote as BDSM or kinky. I simply wrote what turned me on. Can I help that I’m a kinky motherfucker?

Do you write BDSM/kink erotica based on what you find interesting or sexy, or do you write more for your audience?

I hate to sound like a total sub (ha), but my characters call the shots. Last year, I wrote a story called The Perfect Girl for Harlequin. (This story is up for free on Harlequin’s web site: http://www.harlequin.com/articlepage.html?articleId=1620&chapter=1)

In that novella, the main character had never done anything kinky before. But her new lover had his heart (and hand) set on spanking her. This fairly mild fetish became the focal point of the story, made new and fresh to me because the heroine was such a neophyte.

In other work, I’ve entered the dungeons, picked up the floggers, toyed with the handcuff keys, whispered a safeword—all based on how dark, deviant, or dangerous my characters wanted to be.

What is your favorite fetish? Why?

About a year ago, I spent every Friday on my blog chronicling a different fetish (yup, “Fetish Fridays”). I researched the number of internet sites devoted to each of the fetishes, found creative clips from popular erotica, and opened the conversation up to my readers.

I wish I could say I don’t play favorites, but long-time readers can nail mine in a second. I love spanking, bondage, discipline, dominance. But my all-time favorite fetish is discovering what turns other people on. I’m the ultimate eavesdropper, the quintessential snoop. Listening to other people discuss their fetishes—cross-dressing, candle wax, fishnets, latex, anal, or anything else—that’s my ultimate turn-on.

If someone new to your work is going to start with a story, which one would you recommend they read first?

Several of my shorts are up for free on different websites. I’m particularly proud of “Pierced,” which I wrote a few years ago for Bastard Life.

And I’m also pleased with Bachelor’s Dessert

The first is kinkier than the second, but both are shorts (1500 words) and would give readers a taste of my style.
For a collection of my spanking stories, “Blushers” is my current fave. This minibook features six reprints and one spanking-new story. I do love a good, hard spanking. Those readers who do, as well, will probably get a kick out of “Blushers.”

When you’re writing BDSM/kinky-related erotica, is there a particular movie or music that you might watch or listen to that helps you get in that frame of mind?

When writing is going the smoothest for me, I read, listen, and watch what my characters would enjoy. I fall into the people I write about, and I actually become a little obsessed. I mean, I’ve been known to buy articles of clothing that suit someone who only exists in my mind. I listened a lot to Portishead when I was writing one story, even though I’d never delved into their music before. And I once bought a boombox necklace because a deejay in the novel I was working on craved the glittery piece of jewelry.

But often I’m inspired by lines in my favorite songs. I listen to The Stones, The Cure, Pink Floyd, Lou Reed, The Velvet Underground, Elvis, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Beastie Boys, Bowie… pretty interchangeably. When I latch onto a CD, I will play the disc on repeat for a week before I move onto something new. (Although often old.)

What’s the most surprising piece of feedback you’ve ever received from a fan of your writing?

Some of my readers have been with me for years. (How cool is that?) So they know me, know my style, and apparently, know my characters. This is one of the finest comments I’ve received:

There he is again Alison – how is it that you can make him always so different, but yet, still the guy I want to get Lucky with? Thanks for another great one!

This note truly delighted me. I may dress up my doms differently from story to story, but at their core, they share similarities. How could they not? They all live in my head.

At this point in your career, do you think you’ll write more BDSM/kinky erotica?

My first BDSM anthology with Cleis was Best Bondage Erotica, which came out about a decade ago and has sold more than 22,000 copies. Here’s something exciting…. I just signed on with Cleis to edit two more bondage-themed collections in the next few months! So you will definitely be seeing more bondage in my future. But honestly, I don’t write straight, vanilla stories much. I have a dirty mind, filthy dreams, and a brutally sexy relationship with a man who knows how to push all of my kinky little buttons. How could I write anything else?

Who is your favorite BDSM/kinky author?

Everyone who knows me will be able to say this name aloud with me: Thomas Roche. The man rocks my naughty world on its axis. I’ve known Thomas for more than 15 years, and his stories still slip into my head, under my skin, between my sheets. He plays with words, images, scenes, and stretches them out taut, making them scream. (http://thomasroche.com/)

I’m also a long-time fan of Sommer Marsden’s writing. I appreciate her real-life scenarios and the way she blends kink in to committed long-term relationships. She has a style unlike any other writer I’ve met, and she’s one hell of a prolific beast. So if you like her, you get to like her whole backlist, which will impress the fuck out of you.

Slave to Love is a wonderful collection of short stories. There are twenty-two short stories within the pages of Slave to Love and the variety of them is unique and very welcome. You should definitely pick this one up if you are looking for a little variety and some short stories to enjoy or to share with a partner.

Having read numerous collections in the past, what I really liked about Slave to Love is that each story is a different kink. They range from soft to more hardcore. The stories are all well written and even though they are quick, it’s an interesting peek at a new fetish or a new twist on something you already enjoy.

The stories cover topics such as puppy play and bondage. There is at least one story with a professional Dominatrix and a few others with dungeons introducing new submissives and playing harder with more experienced submissives. There really is a little bit of everything in Slave to Love. These stories really show the joys of the power exchange and what it is like to surrender to who and what you are.
