What happens when date night involves a blindfold, a corset, handcuffs, or a spanking? The couples in Dirty Dates combine kink and romance in this collection of erotic stories that provides plenty of ideas for your next sexy outing. Your 50th date can be even hotter than the first ones if you play by the rule of Rachel Kramer Bussel, which means NO rules at all except for an emphasis on pure pleasure. Rachel Kramer Bussel has quickly become America’s favorite erotic writer with dozens of best-selling books, awards, and deeply satisfied readers to her credit. Dirty Dates is a delectable collection of stories redolent with romance featuring two people in lust. From first dates to long-term lovers to hook-ups and missed connections, the common theme is coming together in every sense of the word!

My View:

A very erotic anthology featuring 21 authors. Most of the stories are F/M but there is also a F/F and a M/M story too. There is LOTS and LOTS of sex in this book, too much for me to read the book through in one setting, but still really good. Most of the tales have some form of power play, bondage and submission. Sometimes the woman wielding the strap, sometimes the man.

Two of the stories stuck in my mind. One was Polka Dot Dress by Erzabet Bishop. Mostly I enjoyed it because it was F/F but also because Ms Bishop tells wonderful, descriptive and enchanting stories. Of course it doesn’t hurt the lead has my name and I LOVED what happened to “me”. I even have the dresses to match lol.

The other story that captured my attention most is Baby Steps by Justine Elyot. This is a beautiful story of a new mom who is ready to be spanked again. I loved her assessment of her body, how real her feelings and fears are but she is brave enough to move past them. It is very sweet and tender in places and I do so love a good bit of mush with my naughtiness.

Another book well done Ms. Kramer Bussel. Thank you.
