Today I will be talking about Erotica and although I will not be too graphic please do not continue reading if you are easily offended.
I have a love hate relationship with Erotica. I love to read it but I hate most of what is out there. I find most of the back stories to be terrible and the sex scenes to be incredibly cheesy. I have spent an inordinate amount of time trying to find some work that is not fetish based, has good believable sex scenes and has a great back story to match. Well I have found an author – Marc Stevens. I tweet him so much and read his blog so often he probably thinks I am some sort of stalker but I just love his work.
The sex scenes although fantastical are also relatable and the idea of the Points Club in which the participants gain points by acting out others fantasies and spend points by others acting out theirs – means that we can get a real feel for the characters. For once they actually mean something!
There are currently six books out in the series with the seventh on its way very soon. My favourite was Candy’s Virgin – this book actually made me cry (with tears). These are short stories as you would expect but they pack a lot of punch.
What Erotica authors do you like and what are your Erotica Pet Peeves?
