Hurts So Good: Unrestrained EroticaHurts So Good: Unrestrained Erotica by Alison Tyler
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh dear, I’m getting into a bit of a rut with my reading. I bought this because of a story by Nikki Magennis called The Sound of One Hand Clapping. I’m going to have to buy a lot of anthologies at this rate because she has appeared in quite a few.

Once again, this one is edited by the Trollop with a Laptop, Alison Tyler, who appears to have put together as respectable a collection of stories as you can get with such a kinky premise.

I have to be honest, I haven’t read them all. I won’t wait until I have before reviewing the book, though, because I am very fickle and might never get around to it. I deserve a good spanking, probably.

Even though I haven’t read all the stories, this anthology gets five stars. Why? Because The Sound of One Hand Clapping is a five-star story and, even if the others aren’t, it is so astronomically good it doesn’t matter.

This story is proof that erotic writing can be and should be poetic. I have read so many that make me wonder why I bother that it is really a eureka moment to come across a story like this. It makes reading worthwhile, it makes living worthwhile and it justifies why I set up a blog called intense sensations, which was to celebrate exactly this kind of literary peak.

It’s a beautiful, beautiful story and I can’t praise it highly enough.
