Strangers passing through. Friends seeing each other with new eyes. The hesitant touch of new lovers. A first glance. A first word. A first touch. A first kiss. Take a journey through erotic shorts and poems to relive that first-time feeling. Naughty Bedtime Stories: First Taste will stir the butterflies, curl the toes, and send hearts racing. After all, nothing tastes as good as naughty feels....
These stories were sometimes mild and sometime moderately sexually descriptive. I felt that I wanted to know more about each story and the characters but, they all end with questions hanging in the air. I wonder if each writer will finish the stories and characters. yes it was worth the purchase. Some stories were diverse.

This book of shorts includes well written short stories and even some sultry poetry. It is a very nice first taste of the writing styles from several authors.
Meghan Kelly does a great job handling the different stories and I especially enjoyed her rhythm and tempo on the poetry.
I am not fond of the production decision to use a cavernous sound for a character's inner thoughts but this does not detract from the wonderful stories.
I include a brief bit on each of the chapters below:
-- The First Kiss by Jackie McMahon
This book starts off with this sultry short description of the perfect first kiss. I definitely wanted to take Bree’s place.
-- Her Night by Ethan Radcliff
I never knew I would enjoy poetry like this to spice up bedtime. Radcliff’s prose is excellent and Kelly uses wonderful rhythm and tempo changes to get your breath and heart racing.
-- Serendipity by Elodie Parkes
Lizzy is out for a bit of early Christmas shopping for her family and never expected to unwrap a gift of her own. The subway driver is a hoot. Why can’t my shopping trips be this interesting? I thoroughly enjoyed this one.
-- Tackle Me by Jennifer Raygoza
What would you do if you ran into the male you had a crush on in high school? Lexi and Raven Black do.
-- Before the Fall by Aurelia Fray
Adorably hot tale about a maid, Anna, who is secretly yearning (okay not so secretly yearning) for her boss, Oliver.
-- The Proposition by Jackie McMahon
-- Wrong number by Trixie Taylor
I want a friend like Mads. I giggled myself silly throughout this story, especially the first scene with Mads and Becks. I really enjoyed the entire story, especially the twist at the end.
-- The Rescue by Sabina Bundgaard
If you like kindness, pets, romance, suspense and danger this one is for you. Veterinarian Shayna is more than she appears and Ryan just might be her perfect match.
-- Irish Sweets by Lexi Ostrow.
This is a sweet story about saucy Rissa, her love of baking, Kilkenny (Ireland), seduction, and Kieran. Kieran’s accent wandered a bit and was more English and Scottish than Irish but it did not detract from the story.
-- Lovers by Ethan Radcliff
A short tale of love and desire in poetry form. The tempo of the narration is lovely.
-- For the first time by Zoe Adams
Troy has the hots for Kairi but he doesn’t know if it is returned let alone if he will find the courage to ask.
-- The Encounter by Jackie McMahon
A brief glimpse of Nate and Stacey getting frisky.
-- Bratva: Brothers in Sin by Inger Iversen
A crime family story. Jade saw something she should not have and Sergei is the one who will determine if she will keep it to herself. I definitely want to read more Bratva family tales.

it was good. multiple enjoyable stories. one or two were a little corny, and one accent in particular was really not good, but over all it was very enjoyable and I will listen to it again. maybe with my husband?

What did you love best about Naughty Bedtime Stories: First Taste?
Just enough to keep me turning the page over and over. Didn't want it to end. I will keep this one on the shelf for sure!!
There were some stories I enjoyed better than others. The narrator did a very good job.
I tried to like anything about this collection.
The only reason I was able to listen as long as I did was Meghan Kelly's performance.
It's certainly a matter of taste, as there are raving reviews. Just not for me....
*I received this work in exchange for my review; good, bad or meh. I've written all 3 kinds.
