    I loved the cover of Yearn so much I just had to pick it up The voluptuous tattooed woman floating with a crimson parasol had the allure of the off beat She promised a lot but could she deliver? Erotic fiction is difficult Badly written it is smutty embarrassing or just plain boring Too much sex and it becomes the opposite of erotic I am reminded of the over achieving couple who doggedly set out to have sex every day for a year

    An unusual collection of short stories

    I liked “Tremble” the old collection of short stories Unfortunately the new one was lacking on many levels I hope she writes something as good as the Witch of Cologne was The Yearn became repetitive and boring in the second part

    I liked how the stories contained details of the stories before them linking them without really making a link just a hint here and there that made it into a whole That being said this was not my cup of tea I was not seduced even worse I've felt as if the magic was being pulled out of the sex and love making To me it fell flat It was empty and at times I didn't really get the flow of the story It left me rather confused and unsati

    To be fair I have to admit that I'm probably not the intended audience for this kind of books view spoilerI mean I'm one to think that any TV show andor movie relying on sex scenes to sell itself is kinda bad although to be honest it's like 75% of them have to throw in at least one scene at some point so hmm Okay I'm not sure what my point is precisely hide spoiler

    There’s in erotic fiction than just sex and Yearn is definitely a proof of that What keeps your attention alive and enthralled are the stories with the right dose of mystery and the sensuality everything develops with Sex is exciting but you yearn for it thanks to the passion the author uses to describe every emotion and that is what makes you feel part of the story and gives you shivers all alongWith her captivating imagination Tobsha

    Erotica magic and fantasy abound in this Tobsha Learner collection Like her previous story collection there is pretty much something for everyone here Did I like them all?

Ues to probe the complexities of desire obsession and lust to offer readers myriad possibilities for indulging their deepest fantasies   From the movie star who longs for anonymity to the telemarketer seeking an online release to the ei. A prize from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program that I was super excited about I can t even count the number of boxes Yearn s synopsis checked off for me Atmospheric and Lyrical erotica for readers eager to move beyond Fifty Shades of Grey Happily it than lives up to this descriptionYearn has also been described as a thinking woman s erotica something I am extremely fond of given my propensity to overthink my reading material However I don t think the logic of all these stories stands up to intense thought in retrospect some incidents go naggingly unexplained and unresolved while others just become ridiculousInk Somewhat unusually this short story collection puts one of the longest pieces first All the same I devoured it in one sitting Ink is a fun well researched historical fantasy piece written with a light hand it is not only lyrical but also reveals a sense of humor through the interjections of a first person narrator who is supposedly an established figure in British literature perhaps Charles Dickens I genuinely enjoyed the twist ending which among other things redeemed what at first appeared like very tired exoticism in the origins of D Arcy s little magic ritual Oh those zany Polynesian natives amiriteFlight Although I don t contest the description of Learner s writing as lyrical I counted four out of nine stories in this collection beginning with It is a or It was a An extremely minor nitpick but it came to my attention when both Ink and Flight opened this way It was not at least a dark and stormy nightAll the same like Ink Flight opens with a lot of telling rather than showing While Ink was introducing me to the fascinating world of 19th century men of letters in this case seeing the actor protagonist s life story and ambitions being laid out so plainly made him look a bit ridiculous Perhaps that was the point I did love the callback to Ink which hints at a Cloud Atlas style interconnected setup for this volumeBarrow Boy This story continues with the collection s pattern of male POVs an intriguing choice for women s erotica and tying in to previous stories I especially enjoyed this one for further developing a character from Flight It opens differently though strong from the start with dialogue and conflict Metals trader Edward finds himself lying to his aristocratic future in laws about going to Oxford On the eve of the 2008 financial crisis Eddy experiences a crisis of his own as uestions over his identity implode when he encounters an old school love and spends a night on the town with her Only a few pages in I began reading the words with a Cockney accent It was splendidFur Like Ink this story has a strong fantasy element although a very haphazardly executed one It also suffers from its opening Losing a loved one or family member to mental illness is a buzzkill even the sexist mood would not survive But May s affair with the werecat her perhaps delusional perhaps possessed former boyfriend gives to her proves interesting especially as is implied about the magic here than stated outrightTigger A older woman finds love with a younger man in Melbourne I liked seeing a woman who knows what she wants and though I have some minor nitpicks about the couples dynamic the chemistry between the two is palpable and grows to genuine affection which makes the revelation of the just askew of first person narrator poignant if not entirely unexpected Pussy and Mouse This tale of a Second Life dominatrix has some excellent moments as it explores the capacity of totally immersion in virtual reality I almost felt like I was reading science fiction which says a lot about the technology we currently have and its effect on willing minds However as with Tigger the twist was predictable and seemed very reliant on coincidence Pussy and Mouse also disappointingly shares with 50 Shades of Grey a point of criticism that True Love makes the protagonist give up those wicked BDSM ways to be fair those wicked ways were only practiced in an online fantasy life Weather A woman develops an extreme crush on the weatherman This is a ridiculous premise of course but Learner manages to sell it by her extremely lyrical descriptions of said weatherman and his methods of illustrating oncoming rains winds out of the southwest etc Even her descriptions of the actual weather are elementally sexy Unfortunately as I mentioned with Fur losing someone to a mental illness is a major buzzkill and there is no way our protagonist cannot be assumed to be extremely unbalanced Sexily unbalanced though Flower A newly divorced woman conuers her uncertainties about her sexuality with the help of a gay escort and a fascinating sculpture of flower vaginas There is an interesting parallel made between female circumcision and vaginoplasty although it falls somewhat flat to me after reading about the actual debate over cultural imperialism s role in the battle against FGM Our wealthy Western protagonist is on much solid ground managing her own liberation as she comes to terms with the fact that natural labia are unlikely to resemble those of a pornstarIt s better than it sounds honestly Thinking women s erotica indeed with excellent potential to spark conversation among a book club or other literary circle with very particular tastesThe Alchemy of Coincidence All the stories in Yearn tie into their predecessor and this features one of the closet ties the sculptor of vaginal flowers from Flower is preparing a new art show and perhaps a magical one at that Satisfying as magical realism as well as erotica this piece follows her adventures as she sculpts the face and body of a man glimpsed in a magazine hoping her image making will produce a coincidence drawing him to herI ending this collection hoping for a unifying theory of everything and perhaps the theory of image making and binding coincidences is as close as it comes Between Ink and Alchemy of Coincidence Yearn begins and ends with magic As a fantasy fan I appreciate that Unfortunately as a fantasy fan I like my magic to come with rationality and completeness and this set of thinking woman s sexy stories
