Best Erotic Romance 2014 by Kristina Wright Review
Best Erotic Romance 2014 by Kristina Wright is nothing like I was expecting. It’s a collection sixteen bite sized stories, all of which are interesting on various levels. Each story has a different feel and several shocked me with a twist or two. Really I was most shocked by how I could relate so easily to some of the stories, how everyday the situations could be.
To many the idea of having to make time and schedule in sex is a turn-off. I know it can have that effect on me more often than not, but when we manage to overcome that and get in right frame of mind it can be some of the best sex in a long time. This is the idea the anthology leaves me with and it hits close to home. The characters are so believable in those stories that could have been boring – not unusual and exciting enough – but they prove we don’t need extremes. These, coupled with the more unexpected and novel stories give huge variety.
I’ve read erotic novels and I’ve read erotic short stories, but never any type of collection. They didn’t appeal to me because I assumed (wrongly) that they were purely to help get me off. Having read Best Erotic Romance 2014 by Kristina Wright, I can see people buying it for that reason, but I read this for fun and still found it enjoyable. And it was hammered into me more than ever that we shouldn’t take our partner(s) for granted, get bogged down with work or childcare. Making time to be together and enjoy the moment, however it came up, is what this book taught me.
And the sex was good too!
So the next time you can’t decide whether you’re in the mood, can’t get your mind off of you hundred page to do list, give it a moment. You might be surprised. Best Erotic Romance 2014 by Kristina Wright gets a hearty 8/10 and a huge thank you to Cara Sutra for being kind enough to allow me to review.
