What reviewers are saying about Volume 4:

“The entries range from tenderly seductive—Alyssa Cole’s sf human/android tale “Essential Qualities” proves a true standout in this regard—to playfully raunchy, with everything in between. This anthology’s ­inclusion of diverse characters in terms of age, race, kinks, and ability is refreshing and much-needed in erotica; each writer finds a way to adhere to the collection’s theme while blissfully breaking the mold. VERDICT An exceptional volume of quality quickies; highly recommended.”

STARRED Review, Library Journal

“Female empowerment is the uniting theme in this sexy anthology featuring powerhouse authors such as Megan Hart and Alyssa Cole. The anthology opens with a bang as Mica Kennedy’s 'Take the Shot' introduces a plus-size, sensual woman of color posing for a hot photo shoot with her much younger teaching assistant.”

Publishers Weekly

While I 'got something' out of each of these stories, there were some that I particularly enjoyed. I found 'The Jump' by Rebecca Chase and 'The Pick-Me-Up' by Suleikha Snyder to be so relatable. Break-ups, rebound sex, and bar flings are all experiences I have had that were touched on between these two stories. 'The Invitation' by Regina Kammer takes place in 1880, and I am a sucker for a good bodice-ripper. Plus, I like that this story was about a middle-aged widow rather than the sort of virginal character that usually is the leading lady in historical romance. Finally, I’ve been dying to read Alyssa Cole, so her sci-fi story 'Essential Qualities' really excited me, even though this isn’t my usual genre. Slutty Girl Problems
