I first heard about Rose Caraway from a friend at work, and I fell in love with her iTunes podcast on the very first listen. "The Beacon" episode touched me in a real way. Rose manages to bring a tangible combination that I've never heard in erotica before. It's fun, sexy, smart, and has plenty of heart. Each new "Kiss Me Quick's" podcast episode is the highlight of my day.
OK enough about the podcast, here's what I have to say about Gotta Have It.
Rachel Kramer Bussel did a wonderful job of putting together 69 stories that were sexy, and different. Tasty bite sized little morsels of bliss. They were perfect for my daily commute home to my fella. BTW- He's a fan of this audio book and he hasn't even heard it yet, if ya know what I mean.
In terms of the narration, it doesn't get any better.
Most "sexy" narrators that I've heard are so "over the top" and "put on" that it's distracting and obnoxious. Rose takes a completely different take on sexy. Her style of delivery lets you forget the narration completely and just get sucked into the story. Rose is the perfect blend of sexy, authentic, and sweetness.
Absolutely. I purchased this because I am a big fan of the narrator.Rose Caraway was the perfect choice for this title.
Yes. Very extreme!
Rachel Kramer Bussel selected some fantastic stories. And Rose Caraway delivered them perfectly. I loved the idea of this book. Tons of quality short sexy stories. This is well worth the purchase or use of a credit. Great to listen to with your significant other for some fun potential new things to try.
You don't need a long time to listen. The stories aren't all about one kind of sex. There's everything from roleplay to masturbation to long-term tender relationships to kinky sex.
What can I say? I liked the stories about food, specifically Eat Me, about a pregnant vegetarian suddenly lusting after a hamburger, and Dining In The Dark, a very different kind of oral experience.
I've heard most of Rose Caraway's audiobooks and this one is just as good - not necessarily better, but on par with the others. She simply has a sexy voice I could listen to all day.
I wouldn't call it extreme, but I found myself getting swept away imagining each story. I especially liked library sex in Special Collections!
hot fun surprising
I liked that I never knew what to expect. Some of the stories were romantic, tender, occasionally even a little wistful, while others were hilarious, though what else would you expect with a cat on the cover?
The foodie in my loved Hot Buns on a Sunday Afternoon.
No, I prefer to listen to a few whenever I'm in the mood. 69 at once might be too many (though maybe not for other people). These are great to listen to late at night or early in the morning, and short enough you won't feel sucked into something you don't have time for.
The stories are more than sexy; they are fun.
The one about hot buns on a Sunday. That was hawt.
Very high. These were sexy and didn't require a long time commitment, plus I adore Rose's voice, which I know from her podcasts and could listen to any time.
Probably Hot Buns on a Sunday Afternoon. I mean, who can resist that yummy combination? And Eat Me, about a hamburger that spurs a pregnant woman into being very flagrant and daring. After Ten Years got to me because it's so tender and such a loving portrait.
I've also listened to her recording of The Big Book of Orgasms; both are excellent.
I don't know if I'd say I had an extreme reaction but I appreciated that there was humor mixed in with the sexier parts.
There's 69 stories, which means some will likely appeal to you more than others but that's exactly what I most appreciated. There was so much variety in types of storytelling and characters and I found myself breathless with some of them, and since they're short, I've listened to my favorites again and again. Rose Caraway outdid herself with these and I plan to listen to all of her audiobooks, but this will probably always be my favorite.
Overall I thought the book was a great read/listen. It has something for everyone in this book. With the stories coming in from various Author's, the narrator attempted to do her best to capture, paint the picture, and deliver a great story.
I don't judge people on what turns them on, but I do judge authors by their writing. And this was a collection of some of the worst written short stories I've ever read. You know how people often make fun of the stupid story lines in porn that are designed to get right to the sex? That's every single one of these stories. I don't expect amazing world building or characters with depth, but some of the reasons people give for having sex with strangers or in uncomfortable/unfamiliar situations is beyond ridiculous. On top of that, the writing isn't sexy. It's repetitive and uses some of the most awkward terminology for sex organs I've ever seen.
I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure the narrator actually made the listening of this book even worse than it would have been if I had read the ebook. No inflections and awkward timing paired with outrageous moaning and groaning.
