Renowned novelists Isabel Allende and Mary Anne Mohanraj are just two of the talented authors who contribute to this envelope-pushing, bracingly honest, and consistently stimulating anthology of women's erotica.
Performers Shannon Gunn and Hazel Pethig display impressive range in their scintillating, evocative portrayals of a staggeringly diverse cast of female characters, such as the pining lover preparing for heartbreak during Isablle Carruthers' "Learning to Play Chess", and the sardonic narrator recalling a middle-school tryst in Cecilia Tan's "Thought So".
Fans of the genre will be not be disappointed by this addictive listen.

I purchased this book because I love the narrators. The stories were just awful. I would listen to one chapter and go to another book. I gave every chapter a chance all I found was thirty some odd authors I will never purchase from.
