Picking up where Gotta Have It left off, Can't Get Enough captures the passion and intensity of quickies and nooners: those delicious times when the urge to merge takes over. Veteran erotica author and first-time editor Tenille Brown has collected stories for Can’t Get Enough that highlight the essence of insatiable desire. With contributions from familiar names like Rachel Kramer Bussel, Jacqueline Applebee and Giselle Renarde, along with newer faces like Monica Corwin and Beatrix Ellroy, this is a book full of diverse and dynamic characters who are bold and daring. The authors here knock the theme of Can’t Get Enough right out of the park with stories that will leave readers as breathless as the characters they’re reading about, dying for more.
Sexy summer fun fill this anthology about gotta have it now encounters. There are strangers, old friends, and new lovers in this book. Every story in Can’t Get Enough is intense sex. Tenille Brown picked out 27 brilliant stories to delight the reader.
This book includes a Foreword by Cole Riley and stories by Meil Rose, JoAnne Kenrick, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Allison Wonderland, Jacqueline Applebee, Madison Einhart, Tilly Hunter, Tasmin Flowers, Blair Erotica, Heidi Champa, Lucy Felthouse, Beatrix Ellroy, Preston Avery, Medea Mor, Louise Blaydon, Monica Corwin, Giselle Renarde, Kyoko Church, Anika Ray, Hilary Keyes, Sophia Valenti, Erzabet Bishop, Harper Bliss, Kissa Starling, Shoshanna Evers, Tenille Brown, and Annabeth Leong.
Every story in this book is devilishly good. I was hooked on this anthology right away with Meil Rose’s Big Appetites. Each story is unique in that it is all about wanting sex right now. These characters can’t wait, really. Stories like this cut right to the chase and leave me satisfied. I took my time reading this book although I could have finished it in one day. I ended up picking a few favorites, but then a few more and one more till I can’t really decide which stories to tell you about. This book contains f/f, m/m, m/f, BDSM, sex toys, and a surprise story at the end by Annabeth Leong that really sums up what Can’t Get Enough can really mean.
The cover says erotica for women but I bet this book will appeal to a few men as well. Stories like Sweet Revenge by Anika Ray about a woman who gets to screw the secretary and Blake Eats Out by Shoshanna Evers about a dom who takes her sub out to dinner, make this a woman’s collection because the woman gets what she wants. The two m/m stories were very hot as well. I loved Free Ride by Heidi Champa about a cabby and his fare. I have to admit that Mud and Pain by Tilly Hunter, about a pair of runners, was one of my favorites.
I really enjoyed the variety and the improvisation of these stories. This book is full of erotica that will appeal to those who don’t want drawn out drama. There is just enough about the back story so that we get right to the good part, or parts as it is. I highly recommend this collection. Tenille Brown is an editor/author I am going to have to watch out for. Her story Famous Last Words, is a hot tale of breakup sex. She knows how to pick great erotica. Can’t Get Enough is 5 star collection.
