Title : Lustfully Ever After
Release date : May, 2012
Publisher : Carina Press
Genre : Erotica / Fantasy
In Lustfully Ever After, classic fairy tales are reimagined for an adult audience with twists (and kinks) to keep readers entertained. In Michelle Augello-Page's romantically charged BDSM tale "Wolf Moon," Little Red Riding Hood is the big bad wolf, while Kristina Lloyd rewrites "The Twelve Dancing Princesses" as a scorching hot MFM threesome in "The Shoes That Were Danced to Pieces." Shanna Germain's "Mirror Mirror" shows the sensual Sapphic side of Snow White's stepmother and Andrea Dale pens a contemporary version of "The Steadfast Tin Soldier" in the poignantly erotic "Steadfast."
This delightful collection of fairy tales will lead you down a magical path into forbidden romance and erotic love. You won’t need those bread crumbs to find your way home—for home is where the heart is and the authors of Lustfully Ever After know your heart’s most wicked and secret desires
Lustfully Ever After is an anthology with seventeen short erotica stories and they all have a fairytale theme. Normally I love the very short stories in these kind of anthologies, but I have to be honest I didn’t had that feeling with this one. I don’t know if it has something to do with the fact that they were based on the classic fairytale or simply because the were too short to get a nice story.
Three stories were definitely interesting; Twelve Dancing Princesses, Kit and Boots & You were my favourites, but with the other stories I didn’t feel any connection to really like them.
I believe this would be a better anthology if the stories were longer, where the authors could fit more into the stories than they did now. I had the feeling this was one huge sex-scene with a little story around it. I don’t mind a lot of erotica, but I prefer a real story weaved into the whole thing.
That doesn’t mean this anthology wasn’t well written; because it was. It’s just that I personally didn’t have the loving vibes with this one. But if you are in for an anthology full of short erotica fairytales, then maybe this is something for you. For readers who love erotica but with a good story, then this will be a nice read but not very satisfying.
