What are lesbians longing for? Playwright, event host, and editor Kathleen Warnock helps answer this question in her newest edition of this much-loved, best-selling series. Featuring work from some of the best-known erotic writers as well as the debuts of startling new talent, Best Lesbian Erotica 2011 welcomes back some familiar faces, including Stella Sandberg. Her story, “Manchester, 2000,” follows the European adventures of two studs on a long ride. Perennial favorite Betty Blue returns with “The Garden of Earthly Delights,” an encounter between a firespirit and a lost boi on the celestial plane.

There’s more . . . right under the covers of Best Lesbian Erotica 2011.
*I did receive this book from Night Owl Romance for the purpose of my honest review.*
For those of you that know me… and those that don’t this is my little statement about short books…. I do not judge short stories on the rush of their relationships, because they are just that – short stories. So, yes the relationships always could have been drawn out more, yea it seems like they fall in love to fast and of course the story could have been made longer… but it is a short story. So with that said…. here is my review….
I will start this out with this is a collection of short stories about some female love. If this genre is not for you, you will not hurt my feelings if you go no farther. I understand… With that being said… Let’s continue please…
This book kinda disappointed me a bit. I am a huge f/f fan and I love most stories out there. But this completion just kinda left me a little deflated. I know it takes all kind of f/f’s to make the world go round. And I guess it is more personal preference than anything. And with that being said, I do not want to take away from the book itself. But I was a little put off by some of the stories. Are they well written, yes they are. The just did not interest me in the way I thought.
All stories are separate and no way related to each other. Which is what you would expect. But some left me thinking “WTH” and some I just could not digest what was being said. I know this review is not like me and for that I apologize. Just this book was not meant for me, I think. I hope that if f/f is your main genre, you will give it a try and read it and enjoy it.
The authors in the book are great, but this series just was not for me. And I will not end on a bad note because this is the work of some dedicated authors… I think you all did a great job!
