Hailed as mesmerizing by the Insight Out Bookclub, the world’s largest LGBT reading group, Cleis’ Best Lesbian Erotica is the standard bearer for the genre. Kathleen Warnock has taken the series to new heights of ecstasy with the 2014 entry which is sensational, sensual as well as being really smart smut. A Goldie nominated editor, Warnock collects stories from around the globe, giving this assemblage a fresh sensibility and new points of view. But what really sets Best Lesbian Erotica 2014 apart, however, is the characters; each woman is written so real, you can almost feel the warmth of their bodies in the bed beside you. Evocative and erotic, this commanding collection holds listeners right to the very last sentence.
