Many a confident urban lesbian in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago was once a wide-eyed newcomer. Every year thousands of young women arrive in these queer-friendly cities, seduced by downtown life and its erotic possibilities. In Where the Girls Are, D.L. King collects explicit memoirs and stories about these newly arrived country girls. Here are stories of first times, initiations, bars, dance clubs, and parties, reading (or misreading) the codes - and sometimes teaching those city girls a thing or two in the process.
Featuring such stories as "My First Play Party", "Rush Hour", and "The Critic" from well-regarded authors of erotica Charlotte Dare, Rachel Kramer Bussel, Sophie Mouette, Lisabet Sarai, and others, Where the Girls Are burns with the immense heat of the furnace that lies just below the urban landscape.

Excellent anthology of this genre. Very different stories in different cities, with very unique circumstances. The writers were wonderful and the narrator did a fine job.
Since it was an anthology you can't say characters but you can say which stories. There are 20 stories in this anthology, none were bad. But I'll title some of my favorites, The Critic, Electricity, Don't F**K with a Country Girl. Come to My Window, Just One Night, The City Pony, On Display, Hot Child in the City. These are the titles I remember but the whole collection was fantastic.
Alexandria Wilde was wonderful, she pulled off all these stories with different personalities, emotions and voices beautifully. I don't think anyone will disagree.
One story really had a twist that surprised me I won't give it away, because it was that good.
This was an excellent anthology of Lesbian Erotica, and well worth the cost. I've gotten some real horrible books in this genre, mostly the narrations were totally unprofessional. It's happened at least 8 times and I requested refunds because I couldn't finish the books. I'm not ashamed to tell audible that the narrator on a book is really sub-par. (especially in any erotic genre) This was a great collection.
rambunctiously soft spoken.
I personally didn't find a how lot of variety in this collection they felt like the same story over and over , the story's them self's are fine and dandy but to much alike for my taste .
Mostly using audiobooks when my concentration is so bad that I can't read text. Or sometimes when I feel the need to practise my [listening] english even more. I'm not very picky when it comes to stories, so can listen to practically anything – and have a knack to find SOMETHING in each story that I like. *smile*
Now, downright erotica without other plot isn't really my style but I still enjoyed this collection of short stories. I like how different they could be – the variety. Some I enjoyed more than others naturally but they all felt well written.
I really liked the narrator as well and though she did a great job.
