Nice Girls, Naughty Sex is an erotic anthology put together and edited by Jordan LaRousse and Samantha Sade, the masterminds behind the brilliant erotic fiction and poetry site, Oysters and Chocolate.
It contains twenty naughty stories which, like the website, are divided into four sections; Vanilla (decadent romance and succulent trysts), Dirty Martini (stranger sex, fetishes, group sex, etc), Licorice Whips (domination and submission) and Oysters (lesbian and bi).
For this reason, the phrase ‘something for everyone’ definitely applies! There are tales of cops, prison guards, strangers, getting caught, marriage, affairs, tattoos, photographers, corsets and much more.
Jordan and Samantha have done a brilliant job selecting and editing these stories. Naturally, as you expect with multi-author anthologies, there were a couple that didn’t float my boat, but the vast majority of these erotic tales were hot, hot, hot!
Stories that particularly stood out for me were:
Sommer Marsden’s A Technicality, a bittersweet, heart-wrenching and yet smoking hot story of love, lust, loss and grief.
The totally scorching Behind Bars by Saranna DeWylde, a tale of two prison officers getting up no good on the job.
Heidi Champa’s At a Standstill is a brilliant narrative of an everyday travel nightmare turning into something altogether more interesting.
Honeymoon Suite by Donna George Storey is unique, thrilling, fun and sexy. A lusty Sapphic tale not to be forgotten.
Jeremy Edwards’ inimitable style shone through in his sweet lesbian story, Eastern Daylight Time. I loved the light, fun tone and innocent air in this sexy short.
Overall, I would say this is one book you should definitely be adding to your wishlist. There are stories for all tastes here, and each one is of an incredibly high standard. It’s a great opportunity, too, to read some authors you may not have previously come across. I’d recommend this book wholeheartedly, and my copy’s a definite keeper!
