Black Lace Quickies 8 is a book that contains 6 short erotic stories, filled with real life encounters and fantasies. The stories have been written by women, I think the stories are primarily aimed at women although I think men would find them equally as intriguing.
*** Derailed by Cal Jago ***
This story is about a woman, called Kate, who enjoys illicit liaisons with complete strangers on her train journeys. She enjoys teasing men and women that take her fancy, but after meeting a special man, Dan, Kate is trying to reform. But giving up her wicked ways will be hard to do, what will Dan make of her sexual desires and naughty behaviour?
This story is fun, although slightly unrealistic, the plot is good and it builds up well and has an interesting end. I would say it would definitely get your blood pumping.
***The Silk Seller by Maria Lloyd***
Jasmine is intrigued by the small discreet local silk shop, which is situated opposite her apartment. The shop is owned by a mysterious man, called Mr Sebastian. Jasmine watches his customers come and go although on this occasion Mr Sebastian notices his neighbour watching him and when his next client arrives he gives Jasmine a show she will never forget. It soon makes her want to become a customer of Mr Sebastian's too...
This is one of my favourites form the book. It is your typical voyeurism story, fairly erotic and gives you just the right amount of juicy details to get your mind racing.
***Seams & Ladders by Fiona Locke***
One her way to work one day she notices an older man staring at her, she cant help but stare back. He comments to her that she has a ladder in her stockings and tells her she should be more careful. He invites her to dinner and tells her to wear the vintage stockings he sends her. But she ladders the tights, what ever will he make of he attempts to cover her "sins".
This story wasn't really for me, I found it tedious, the woman has no name for a start so the sense of reality immediately goes for me. I don't know who the story is aimed at or what fantasy is being told it's a kind of mix between dominatrix and a fetish for silk. I think it works as a short story, if it was any longer it would send me to bed for all the wrong reasons.
***The All Night by Tulsa Brown***
Sherry, a radio DJ, is surprised to meet a man, who just so happens to be a cleaner at the station, who isn't afraid of her. As the night is slow she decides to used the young man as her play toy to ease her boredom.
This is your typical dominatrix story, it has quite a lot of the language in it yet the plot is lacking something. Overall it's a good story but think it could be better if there was more background to the story, the writer definitely has a way with words, it would be interesting to read a novel from her.
***Marks in the Mirror by Francesca Brouillard***
Eve is a powerful successful woman, she decided she needed a break and went on holiday to France to stay with her family and help out on their farm. Louis was also staying with the family for the summer and when the two found themselves alone one day Eve learnt what it was like to be on the other side of power.
This is a ok story, I wanted more from it, again this was a submission fantasy which quite frankly lacked imagination, the plot was good as was the setting but the events could have been made more powerful and engaging.
***Gone Sopping by A. D. R. Forte***
After her boyfriend Stan, ruins her jeans, she decides to go shopping with her Aunt and when shopping for jeans there' nothing like finding the perfect fit...
This story had quite a good sense of reality to it, again as it is a short story I think it lacked a lot of important features. One of the best in the book though.
Last summer I got into a weird obsession with erotic novels, unfortunately by the time I had purchased this I had already read a few books and this just didn't seem to be in the same league as the others. I think that this would be a great book for those who are new to erotic literature. I like a book that can make me blush and this just didn't, the stories were fairly predictable although they were enjoyable to read. I think all the stories would have been better as novels.
As short stories I expected to get very in-depth descriptions and a good variety of stories to choose from, however most of these stories had a dominatrix/submission theme to them, which is something that can be enjoyable to read about but can soon become very dull, especially if its not very imaginative.
I bought the book from www.lovehoney.co.uk for approximately £3.00 although its worth shopping around on places like ebay as you may be able to get it cheaper.
Overall I would say the book is great for those who blush easily but for those who like their erotica to be well... erotic then I would suggest something by Abby Lee or Suzanne Portnoy.
