Sooo Tired of the Struggle -- Really Rape?

Would you try another book from Blanche Richardson and/or Christy Clark?

Possibly

What could Blanche Richardson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The story of being black and a woman doesn't begin in slavery; it doesn't begin at struggle. Sometimes I am simultaneously black, a woman and okay. I'm not a victim of circumstance or mired in the cares of the day. I was hoping for some escapism in this book and it starts out from sentence one as a disappointment on this front. Starting a book of erotica with a brutal rape is EXTREMELY OFF-PUTTING.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

Yes

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment

Any additional comments?

Please find some black women's erotica that doesn't start with a brutal rape. Black women want positive fantasies too. Geez.

Fantasy, Heat, and Heart

This is the ONLY first-rate collection of back women’s erotica.

I’ve been reading, editing, and writing erotica for thirty years, and this is the only collection where each and every story has mystery and honesty in the writing as well as being crazy sexy.

Talented writers like Bertice Berry, and Zane bringing fantasy, heat, and heart.

Christy Clark does a bang-up job reading this collection, bringing the smolder without pushing it into camp.

Not a win for me...

I feel like I need all my money back. I expected more from this book and previous info that was shared. These stories seem to be one sided in perspective. I'm not going to keep going with this one...

Title is misleading

Some of the stories were good but overall only three would be considered Erotica. Really expected more.

A little Great, a little not

I was drawn in by the title, cause I love stories from and about my race. In all honesty the stories that i loved, I !oved. However the ones I didn't like, I really didn't like. But as with all audio books there may not have been 100% love but it was enough to be glad I listened.

I enjoyed it

If you could sum up Best Black Women's Erotica in three words, what would they be?

Erotic stories centered on Black Women.

What other book might you compare Best Black Women's Erotica to and why?

I am too early in my studies to speak broadly, but opening up the works of the authors included would be a great way to start.

Have you listened to any of Christy Clark’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, but I enjoyed it.
