Book Review: It is Time and Other Stories

This is about It is Time and Other Stories by Anna Bayes.

Short description:

This collection of 15 romantic bite-size stories is a must-have for Anna’s loyal fans and serves as the perfect sampler for new readers. Find out why fans from everywhere are addicted to Anna’s writing.

The collection begins with the tale of a woman who has decided that “It is time” to give her lover a final gift.

From the sweet, vanilla exchanges of love (such as “Love Letter,” “Gratitude” and “Ticket to France”), the electrifying thrill of instant attraction (“Stockings, Pendant, Arousal” and “Unexpected”), paranormal love story (“Lucy Reborn”) to steamy tales that stretch the mind and boundaries (for example, “My Reluctant Dom” and “Four Hot Guys”), these 15 stories promise to tease and gratify.

Note: Explicit sex scenes. Adult material intended for readers aged 18+.


My two cents:

The description said it’d be the perfect sampler for new readers. It was.

Each and every sex scene was hot and done just right. Intense but not over-dramatic.

These were short stories but all of them were intact stories, or hinted at a story in the background.

This was a good sampler of different styles and heat ratings. Some were sweet, some were more aggressive and downright dirty in the orgy story. I’m not a fan of paranormal tales as I’ve said before, but the one paranormal story in this collection, “Lucy Reborn” was nicely done. The otherworldly sex scene was appropriate.

I especially liked the first story, “It is Time.” Finally an author who admits that not all bad boys can be tamed to become a woman’s loyal partner. It was sentimental but realistic. The oral sex scene was hot but it was more than just a scene.

Well fucking done. I’ll be back for more, Ms. Bayes.

5 out of 5 stars in my book.
