    "The Best Voice in the Genre!!"

    All right, I'll admit it, I'm a Rose Caraway fan.

    In my opinion, no one does the narration of an erotic story better than Rose. I've been listening to her for years now, first on the Kiss Me Quick's and Sexy Librarian podcasts, then on her ever expanding catalog of audio books. Each one has been better than the last.

    Rachel Kramer Bussel has edited many fine anthologies, and this is one of the finest I've ever read. The combination of these stories and Rose's voice makes for an unbeatable combination. I'm a guy, but I felt sucked right into these stories. They made my morning and evening commutes wonderful experiences.

    "Fun listen"
    If you could sum up Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

    fun sexy exciting


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1?

    I liked Starstruck, because I'm also a bit of a geek and the idea of meeting one of my favorite actors thrills me. I of course loved Tiffany Reisz's story, which takes the office romance to a whole new level.


    What does Rose Caraway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She makes me feel like I'm right there with the characters. I'm a listener of her podcast The Kiss Me Quicks and this felt like an extension of what she's doing there. I could listen to her all day.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I loved the sensuousness of the painting scene in A New Canvas. It was sexy and tender at the same time and gave me shivers. I also really loved Two Doms for Dinner. The author really made me understand what it's like to want to give up control in that way.

    "Sexy for guys too"
    Where does Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very high up.


    What other book might you compare Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 to and why?

    Not sure since I don't read tons of erotica.


    Which character – as performed by Rose Caraway – was your favorite?

    The couple in Date Night. It was sexy and playful and made me feel like anything could happen. And the narrator in Enter Me. She made me appreciate being able to hear my wife's smallest noises all the more and the story was wonderfully drawn out with just the right amount of suspense and tension.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The Altar of Lamented Toys was poetic while also being sexy. Overall, though, I was intrigued by most of the women in these stories.


    Any additional comments?

    Sexy and definitely gave me some insight into what turns women on.

    "Lots of sexiness"
    If you could sum up Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 in three words, what would they be?

    fun surprising hot


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1?

    I got this book partly because I'm a big fan of Tiffany Reisz, and her story The Assistant was one of my favorites. I also liked the one about the seance and the sexy bodypainting. I liked almost all the stories, though some spoke to me more than others.


    Have you listened to any of Rose Caraway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, I've heard many stories on her podcast and some of her other audiobooks. This is as good as any of them.


    Any additional comments?

    This one's a keeper!

    "Sexy"
    What was one of the most memorable moments of Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1?

    The BDSM story Two Doms for Dinner. It was delicious! I really liked how all three of them were so into it and how much she wanted to please both doms.


    What about Rose Caraway’s performance did you like?

    She made everything sultry. She has a voice I could listen to any day.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me a little breathless at times. I liked that some stories were about strangers or friends hooking up and others were about couples exploring things. Made a good mix.


    Any additional comments?

    The ComicCon story was one of my favorites. So funny but also super sexy.

    "sexy as hell!"

    Never let it be said that women are not just every bit as horny, filthy and erotic as any man. These stories are a treat to listen to, but if you're a prude or don't like explicit language, then this book isn't for you. Highly recommended!

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The party scenes in " The Assistant" by Tiffany Reisz

    Rachel Kramer Bussel has really brought together some very talented ladies who know how to write quality erotic stories. And with the narration from Rose Caraway this is pretty much the perfect erotica anthology.

    Very much worth the purchase or use of a credit.

    Story
    "Humor plus hotness"
    Would you listen to Best Women's Erotica of the Year, Volume 1 again? Why?

    Yes, because even though I already know what's going to happen, these are about the journey, not the destination. There's a lot of wonderful imagery and also many stories that made me laugh even though they were also sexy. I don't see that too often.


    What does Rose Caraway bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She makes them even hotter.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Like I said, there was an element of humor in many (though not all) of the stories that was welcome. I like to get swept away by passion as much as anyone but I also appreciate that these characters could laugh at themselves and their situations sometimes.

    "Took me lots of places"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    It's got lots of different characters having sex in various ways. I identified with some more than others.


    Which character – as performed by Rose Caraway – was your favorite?

    I liked the woman in Flying Solo, she managed to have a connection to her husband even while having an adventure on her own.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I liked listening to a few stories at a time, sometimes just one if it particularly struck me.


    Any additional comments?

    These are sexy stories that gave me a lot to think about and turned me on.

    "One hell of a sexy collection"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Anytime you see the name Rachel Kramer Bussell you just know that you’re in for a treat. Her keen eye for a good story never fails and this first selection of the year is no different. Every handpicked story is hot as hell. Some brought a tear to my eye, some made me laugh out loud and some made me think what if? But all were a turn on! No matter what your kink, there’s something here for you.
    Couple that with the honey-golden voice talents of Rose Caraway, Dayv “Big Daddy” Caraway’s high production values and what you have is a veritable audio delight that won’t disappoint.
    Could I pick a favourite story? Nope, they are all excellent – but I could pick out a few… Two Doms for Dinner and Waiting to Pee are a couple but my top two have to be The Carnalarium and The Assistant.
    I just can’t wait for the next instalment.
