My rating: 5 of 5 stars
BEST WOMEN’S EROTICA OF THE YEAR, VOLUME 3 is a wickedly decadent compilation of sensual short stories that focus on women and their pleasure.
Honestly, it was a little hard for me to rate this one! Although I enjoy erotica at times, some of the stories were just so far out of my comfort zone! But when I looked at the shorts from a more practical POV, I realized that all of them are well written, they each give the reader a small taste of various kinds of scenarios and there’s something in this anthology for everyone.
I love that each story only takes maybe 10 or 15 minutes to read so even if you don’t really enjoy the scene being played out, you’re really not investing a whole lot of time in it. And I’ll admit, some of these were so freaky-deaky to me…I was ENTHRALLED, I couldn’t stop reading, even as I was blushing like a mad woman! This book was a definite eye opener for me. I wanna stand up and applaud the bold writing, the adventurous scenes, the feminine flair that this anthology focuses on!
This book was designed for women who are confident enough to celebrate and explore their femininity. Told from various POVS. I received, read and voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Best Women’s Erotica of the Year, Volume 3delivers the kind of sexy stories you want most: daring, bold, and surprising tales of women who pursue their boundless passions anywhere and everywhere. Edited by Rachel Kramer Bussel, winner of multiple Independent Publishing Book Awards, these scintillating scenarios turn the tables on how women are “supposed” to behave. Instead, these uninhibited vixens indulge in their favorite fetishes, do deliciously intimate “Body Shots,” and get tied up with “Red Satin Ribbons.” They pose nude, dress up, and roleplay, always obeying their most exhilarating impulses. These lusty ladies take your most cherished, private fantasies–from making a sex tape, to taking part in a thrilling threesome, to having a stud delivered to your door hot and ready–and make them come alive. Written by beloved authors Abigail Barnette, Annabel Joseph, and Charlotte Stein along with several genre newcomers, these are erotic encounters you’ll want to savor again and again and again…
