Sweet Danger: Erotic Stories of Forbidden Desire for Couples is an anthology of 20 smoking hot stories. I mean it; don’t keep this book near anything flammable. I’m blushing, just writing the review. The book is almost impossible to describe in any detail. Let’s just say that in an anthology such as this, one is bound to find something of personal interest. The authors explore a very wide range of topics, fantasies of power, betrayal, and control, some romantic, some much less so. They’re written from a variety of perspectives, both male and female, and those in between. The stories by Sara DeMuci, Jolie Joss and Eric Emerson were especially steamy. Make no mistake, this is a potent cocktail of taboo-bending stories designed to get you short of breath, and keep you there for as long as possible.
