Thoughts:

This was a fun anthology full of stories that varied from strong BDSM to mild and mostly love scenes to emotional plots (of course also with love scenes). I liked some while others didn’t thrill me much, but most of the shorts included in this book were very entertaining.

Lacey Wolfe’s Ring of Fire was predictable and I didn’t always like the characters, but I appreciated the ending and setup of the ringmaster. Anne Lange’s With the Greatest of Ease felt too easy, but it was very hot and sweet with characters I liked. Rachel Firasek’s Dark Surrender was good, but pushed some boundaries for me personally and had a couple things that were confusing and others that weren’t very plausible. I did appreciate that it didn’t follow the same formula that the first two did in terms of plot.

Georgina DeBurca’s Twice the Pleasure was completely different from the plot of the first three stories and was very relatable, realistic, and I adored it. I think this was my favorite one of the entire anthology. Mina Carter’s Claimed by the Blade was simple and sexy, but just didn’t really have any depth for me.

April Angel’s The Bratty Lioness Tamer was good, but short and mostly sex. It was also probably one of the kinkiest of the bunch. Sabrina Garie’s Sweet and Sticky was simply sexy, sweet, and very enjoyable. Jennifer James’s Unmasking Her Dom was endearing, though deeper and darker than the others. I enjoyed it, though it was a little on the rough side.

Bottom Line:

If you’re looking for a kinky anthology from some great authors with varying styles within the genre, don’t miss out on The Sin Circus!
