Sizzling, Scandalizing -- Don't-Listen-to-this-in-Traffic!
Reading these stories is one dimension... hearing them being told is quite another!
Great collection of stories Taormino brought together in this unforgettable edition. Even better that she brought them all to life with her narration. All thumbs up!
Make time to get cozy with this one. :-)
While I listened with my headphones, I felt like I was a voyeur able to peek in through the window, to watch the characters come to life in the stories. With Tristan whispering oh so invitingly in my ear, I felt I had full permission to let my imagination soar.
I don't think I could name just one. Each story has a different theme and feel to it and that is what makes this such a rich ensemble.
Keesha in Tag. By the time I got to the end, I was just as excited as the heroine of the story.
I felt myself a part of the stories. I could imagine myself as the characters as they presented themselves in each new piece. Although I do seem to favour (personal preference) some characters more than others, I was invited into a world I have not explored or experienced but realize I would like to.
This book has given me a rich experience putting me where I never imagined I would be. It has given me permission to allow myself the the fullness of indulging the in sensuousness in each story. A totally new experience for me and one I absolutely treasure. With Tristan in my ear, I can go back time and time again and conjure up the nuances with each breath, each kiss, each wanton desire. I never knew I had it in me. Thank you Tristan and all the authors of these delicious narratives!
The variety and the compelling nature of the story lines and characters made it very enjoyable. This audiobook contains many sexually exciting stories, each with unique characters, writing styles and tempos. For instance, one story has a frantic pace, following frenzied actions and impulses. Each story has different characters and different tones but they all fit into the overall theme.
Chapter 13 is written from a sweetly vulnerable perspective. There is an abundance of delicious and hot vocabulary to be enjoyed here. Chapter 24 has many highly quotable lines, such as: “I try to pull my consciousness from between her legs to say something intelligent.”
Tristan's voice is crisp and captivating, sultry and animated. Tristan conveys the different characters excellently. She has a superb command of her own voice, outlining each story with fluency and dynamic expression.
Yes, this is a book that I wanted to listen to all in one sitting, because most importantly, it's hot!!
Get a glass of wine and any of the other necessities, lay back, relax, and enjoy this audiobook solo, with a partner, friend, or partners! Then later on, look up all of the other works of Tristan Taormino! I've read many of her books and I highly recommend them all!
