Women are fast realizing the power they wield in the bedroom, and they are loving it!  This was never more evident than in the sexually dynamic and wickedly explicit pages of Best Women’s Erotica 2011.  This book is a wonderful collection of sexually ambitious short stories from some of the top female authors in the erotica genre.

There are stories for women with all types of fantasies, from women who love to get dominated to women who delight in taking charge in the bedroom. While many of the stories manage to reduce the reader to a writhing mass of lust, several missed their mark. Some not setting the stage properly or neglecting to let the reader in on a few key points that would make the story more accessible.  If you don’t know what turns you on and what doesn’t then this book isn’t for you. With the wide variety of stories this book offers you are bound to find quite a few you don’t care for. If you are new to the erotica scene and don’t really know what you like, this book would be perfect for you. With a little bit of everything, you will certainly find something to tickle your fancy.
