The anthology’s new clothes…

In my inbox today I received a photo of the new cover for Can’t Get Enough which now has a pretty, summer-y beachy look and which should help make the change of the blog theme make more sense. Of course, the two covers are vastly different, however I think that this one has its own unique representation of the theme. Imagine laying with your lover on the beach in the middle of the day, can’t wait ’til everyone’s left, can’t even wait ’til the sun goes down… See where I’m going with this? No? Then see for yourself:

Also, if you’ll refer back to the first post here, you’ll see that I’m linking back to the author’s blogs and/or websites as I receive them. A blog roll will come soon, as will an “About the Author” post. Thanks for checking in, and be sure to look for new posts!

Introduction
Too Much Is Never Enough

I’m not greedy. I’ve always been satisfied with my fair share, never asking for more than is necessary…except when it comes to good sex.

You see, I believe that the best sex is the sex that makes me want it again and again and when I began seeking out stories for this book, I wanted them to evoke that same reaction from readers. I wanted erotica that would leave me not only satisfied, but wanting more. I wanted hot, steamy mouth watering sex. I wanted stories that took the theme and turned it on its head, and boy, did I ever get what I was looking for.

As my word count began bursting at the seams, I found myself anxious and wishing for the space to include more, but soon realized that what had landed in my lap was precisely what it was supposed to be – a book jam packed with stories that left me winded, wanting and hungry for more once I turned the last page, and that was what I wanted to present to my readers.

I was aware that the title of this collection could be misinterpreted, could hint to a theme of endless orgies and empty encounters, but that was what I wanted to avoid. I made sure the stories presented were not only hot and racy, but also sex positive.
I didn’t even want to think about the phrase “slut shaming.” No, this book is filled with people who want it, love it and aren’t ashamed to show it.

Take for instance Jack in Louise Blaydon’s The End of Sensible who is turned on by the site of his lover Tom in women’s lingerie:

At the top of the stairs, Tom disappeared into the bathroom without a word, and Jack went quiescently into his bedroom to wait. Probably it was stupid, this — waiting for Tom to come out of the bathroom in his (god) girls’ clothes, just so that Jack could (oh god) take them off him again, but that was the point, wasn’t it? Maybe Tom shouldn’t be the prettiest girl Jack had ever seen, but there it was.

Or Miel Rose’s female lead in Big Appetites, who experiences a moment of passion like no other when the fleeting thought of making a baby with her lover enters the picture:

She’s looking straight ahead, drumming on the steering wheel, nonchalant. “It really gets me when you’re all laid out for me, naked, your legs spread wide, and you pull me down on top of you and I slip my cock right up into your pussy. I can look right into your eyes as I rock my dick in and out of you, just the way you like it. That look in your eyes is so sweet, so fuckin’ precious. It’s like we’re making love, like we’re making babies, or some shit.”

There is no shortage of lustful women here, but the men have a hot and heavy presence, too, as in Tilly Hunter’s rough and dirty tale of Mud and Pain and Kissa Starling’s devilishly ironic story about Blue Balls.

There are insatiable couples in long term relationships as in Rachel Kramer Bussel’s Under His Watch, Blair Erotica’s Embraceable You and the playful couple in Allison Wonderland’s Strip to My Lou, and there are fly by night moments of passion such as Beatrix Ellroy’s Before They Burn and Monica Corwin’s Sleepless Need.

I could go on, but I’d run the risk of saying too much, when simply turning the pages of this lust filled collection will be enough, at least, for now.
