This is an anthology of erotic short stories from different authors. I read only two of them—I wish I had time to read the rest, but C’est la vie. Nevertheless, I’m sooooooo in love with the two short, super hot, super erotic, super where-is-my-danm-vibrator stories I read: The Assistant by my beloved Tiffany Reisz, and Flying Solo by Rachel Kramer Bussel. So… here go my reviews:
The Assistant by Tiffany Reisz – 5 stars
I FLOVED Lennon and Ivy’s sexy and kinky adventure. Ivy has worked for Lennon for a couple of years and they have had an ongoing sexual tension since then. One weekend, Lennon told Ivy he was going to a “party” and she was free of work for 3 days, and then is when Ivy decided to go the party and see what happened.
I loved reading this sinners short story. Tiffany’s writing style was as always perfect. I could read anything she writes and I’m 120% sure I WILL LOVE IT!!!
Something really cool happened to me when I was reading it. I was lying in bed, reading my paperback—Yeah! I’m still fangirling for getting a signed paperback from Miss Rachel Kramer Bussel herself, it’s practically my first paperback from Tiffany I hold in my hands, I got the whole #OriginalSinners books last year in the signing at Jen’s Paperback’s event for the release of The Queen, but the logistics of sending books to Colombia is a little tricky… Anyway, I was reading and I saw this…
Lennon wrote back thirty seconds later. “Yes, please. Saturday, nine. 152 Riverside Drive. Warn the driver we’ll be dress weird.”
I have a crappy memory for names and such but I was jumping up and down because I remembered Kingsley’s home address! If that makes me a crazy fan, so I’M A CRAZY FAN! Hahaha that is old news, anyway.
So, great Original Sinners short story, kinky, funny, sexy. Overall, 100% recommended.

Flying Solo by Rachel Kramer Bussel – 5 stars
This is my first time I read a Rachel’s work, and I really hope it’s not the last. Her writing style was unique, it was my first time I read in that style, it was weird at the beginning but I got used to it pretty quickly. It was like if the female main character was talking directly to the male main character. I ended up loving it.
This was the story of Sunny and her husband. They always had an open relationship and right after they got married, they starting having threesomes with other men and women when they traveled. This short story was all about those sexy times, and the final one was when Sunny had to travel alone. It WAS SO HAWT! Go read it and enjoy it yourself.
Great story, sexy, romantic and awesome. 100% recommended.
Final note: Both stories I read had sex relationships in all ways, M/F, F/F, M/M (Not explicit, sadly), M/F/M, and M/F/F.SO HOT!
