Alison Tyler succeeds again with editing a great collection of erotic stories. This book is quality entertainment, not to mention sexy as all get-out. The title, “Slave to Love,” describes perfectly the theme; the power dynamic within sexual encounters establishes a heightened experience of vulnerability, shame, pain, and pleasure.
The power exchanges show us, the readers, that sometimes we need to relinquish some power to a trustworthy person, in order to reach new-found heights in sexual submission and dominance. It takes a strong, willing person to be so vulnerable and open to another person or persons, yet the results can be so rewarding, perhaps even life-changing.
While I often do not consider myself a kinky person, I have come to realize that there are people kinkier and more vanilla than I. Yet the one trait that comes out with reading and enjoying this book is that I am open-minded and willing to be adventurous. This book includes an array of sexy stories, and yet the specific adventures might not turn everyone on. What I think reading this and other erotica books involves is seeing sexual stories through others’ eyes and picturing why and how those scenarios can be so sexy and arousing.
Did I ever considered pony play or daddy play in the past? Never (until now). Nor do I consider myself to be entirely submissive. Yet when I read a “Slave to Love,” I imagine pleasing a dom (or becoming a dom) in order to share an heightened experience with another person(s).
While I appreciate the diversity and creativity found within this collection, not everyone will. Some people might not enjoy experiencing or witnessing a power exchange within erotica, whereas others will find it absolutely arousing. I urge those who want a taste of some power play stories, while perhaps not wanting to act them out in real life, to check out this book. This book and other collections edited by Tyler are always written extremely well, and they are at the very least creative and entertaining.
