I'm Audible's first Editor-at-Large, the host of In Bed with Susie Bright -- and a longtime author, editor, journo, and bookworm. I listen to audio when I'm cooking, playing cards, knitting, going to bed, waking up, driving, and putting other people's kids to bed! My favorite audiobooks, ever, are: "True Grit" and "The Dog of the South."
This is the ONLY first-rate collection of back women’s erotica.
I’ve been reading, editing, and writing erotica for thirty years, and this is the only collection where each and every story has mystery and honesty in the writing as well as being crazy sexy.
Talented writers like Bertice Berry, and Zane bringing fantasy, heat, and heart.
Christy Clark does a bang-up job reading this collection, bringing the smolder without pushing it into camp.
My way in learning to relax is to read or to be read to audiblly!
There were a few short stories I enjoyed but on the whole waiting to get to it was trying. Just not for me!
The story of being black and a woman doesn't begin in slavery; it doesn't begin at struggle. Sometimes I am simultaneously black, a woman and okay. I'm not a victim of circumstance or mired in the cares of the day. I was hoping for some escapism in this book and it starts out from sentence one as a disappointment on this front. Starting a book of erotica with a brutal rape is EXTREMELY OFF-PUTTING.
Please find some black women's erotica that doesn't start with a brutal rape. Black women want positive fantasies too. Geez.
