Let me first say that I often have a hard time getting into both anthologies and stories told from the first person POV. So you would think that I wouldn’t care for this book, right? Well, I have to say that Sharazade proved me wrong in that factor! This anthology was fantastic and I’m happy to say that I really, really enjoyed it!

What a nice thing to read! I actually hadn’t noticed that all of the stories were in the first person until I assembled them for submission; I mean, it hadn’t been a deliberate strategy. I just wrote the stories as I felt like writing them. However, I did worry just a little about it after the fact, and even went back and rewrote one in the 3rd person, and sent both versions to my editor. She said the 1st person version was better, though. This review helps me feel good about my choice.

The full review at The Forbidden Bookshelf (great blog title!) can be found here. Tanya reviewed each of the stories in the collection, and gave each a separate “heat rating,” and then a quality rating of 4.5 out of 5 for the anthology as a whole. Have a browse around the rest of the site and reviews; Tanya and Dana cover different types of erotica, including literary, BDSM & dark erotica, and erotic romance.

Shar Says:

Thanks, Savannah! I emailed a bit with the reviewer after she posted it, too; kind of a thrill to connect to a “real reader,” if you know what I mean.
