Lesbian Erotica

Lesbian Erotica - M. Christian, Jim   Lyon This book was provided by Wordwooze Publishing and read on behalf of Thorn & Ink.

This is a collection of short stories. While I often find short story anthologies a bit harder to review this one is easier, as there is only one author.

The stories were all very good, it includes one of the books I loved this year Bionic Lover. Over all, these reminded of “slice of life” type stories. There is a surprisingly voyeuristic quality to all of the other stories. Some are futuristic, while others are very contemporary. There are some very intimate emotions (beyond the sexual acts) that are being witnessed, I actually felt as though I was peeping.

Audience is important to me. While I do not feel as though I am the target audience. These are well worth reading because of the emotions they evoke. Overwhelmingly heart breaking, with touches of happiness here and there. Once again, M. has left me in my head as I wander in and out the lives of various women.

This is feminine domination in one of its varied forms. I was left wondering what happens next. For some the story continues beyond the pages in daydreams and pleasant musings, while others end abruptly in apt sadness and despair.

There were two other stories that grabbed me.

The After Hours. The strength and power that Taja demonstrates on stage is astounding. Narrowly escaping a dark alley after work creates an inspiring turning point in this story. Her safe haven is Katana. Her dominant takes her fear, turning it into pain and releases it into a fount of tears of survival. I was genuinely fearful for Taja, and happy in her release.

Dress Pinks was a fascinating mind fuck. I can’t put it any plainer than that. I was very pleasantly surprised by it. It is a simple, dirty, slutty scene. This story comes in at a hard second (all puns intended). I straight up laughed aloud when I realized what was going on. In all honesty, this was down and dirty one of the best scenes I have come across this year. Of course, I have my books that have set the standards, but this one was fun in all the ways a scene should be.

This was a fun and quick read. I always look for reads that challenge me in new ways and this did. This isn’t for everyone. This is quite the walk on the wild side for those willing to set aside preconceived notions and are willing to explore.
