I was a bit worried about this book when I realized that I was at the halfway point and had only read one story I really liked, out of eleven. Thankfully, the second half of the book was more to my taste, with four stories I really liked. My final tally: five great stories, eleven stories which range from OK-ish to pretty decent, and five stories which either bored me or simply weren't up my alley. That's not the greatest tally I've come across, but neither is it very bad.

The story which surprised me most was Xan West's "First Time Since," a dirty but heart-felt tale in which a heart-broken gay dom returns to the scene and finds himself lusting after someone for the first time since his previous slave left him. There's a fair bit of uncomfortable stuff in this story (a man getting peed on, a booted foot being placed on a guy's neck), but the wonderful emotional quality of the writing prevented my cringing from turning into acute disgust. This is a story that will stay with me, that's for sure.

Other stories which deserve a mention:

-- Sommer Marsden's "Panty Lines," in which a woman is forced to wear panties which are far too small for her in the leadup to sex. Both the woman's discomfort and the resulting arousal are described exquisitely.

-- A.D.R. Forte's "Turnaround," in which a woman accidentally overhears her friend and role model being punished by her husband, and gets very turned on. The writing is hot and the twist at the end had me grinning.

-- Alison Tyler's "All in the Wrist," in which a woman realizes the dominant man she's going out with may not be quite so dominant after all. That's one sexy game of darts these two are playing.

-- Shanna Germain's "Rock Paper Scissors," which doesn't actually feature any sex, but is still a pretty sexy read.

I'd also like to give a shout out to Nicky Magennis's "The Sound of One Hand Clapping." I'm not sure I entirely "got" this story, which is why I'm hesitant to count it among the good stories, but the writing is absolutely beautiful; "luscious" is the word that springs to mind.

Many of the other stories were pretty blah, in my opinion; they didn't offend me, but neither did they titillate me or really hold my interest. Most of them are in the "once-read-immediately-forgotten" category.

Good stories with a broad level of appeal. It is fascinating to compare some of the recent stories with erotica from the late 90's in terms of what is in vogue. There is an angle/approach for myriad tastes in the variety of short stories in the volume: favorites--:Toying with Lily" and "Turnaround"

I enjoyed the 21 stories in Hurts So Good. I got the book as an after-Christmas present to myself. The book starts off with The Sound of One Hand Clapping, by Nikki Magennis. I have enjoyed her work in other compilations and she doesn't disappoint here either. Next is Sting, by Jessica Lennox, which I loved because I have always found tattoo shops to be very sexy places. (It's the smell) Also, the idea of a sensual encounter turning into a sexual encounter is very exciting. Testing the Water by Teresa Noelle Roberts was a fun story about two friends discovering they had more in common than they thought. I really liked this story because it showed bondage and domination in the context of a typical relationship, contrary to the black leather clad image that TV and movies show of this subculture. She didn't lick his boots or sleep on the floor after the sex was over; they were equals again once the blindfold came off and the paddle was put away. I Promise To Do My Best by Teresa Joseph made me laugh out loud. The idea of adult women dressing up in Girl Scout uniforms and paddling each other is not a turn-on at all for me, but the story was well-written and entertaining. One of my favorites was First Time Since by Xan West. This story contained some of the more graphic dominate/submissive behavior in the book (human urinal), but what it was really about to me was how you slowly gather the pieces and rebuild yourself after a relationship ends. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good spanking, and anyone who is titillated by pushing pain and pleasure to the edge.

This is an excellent book. the cover photo is so enticing and the stories inside are enjoyable. I regularly read this book. It is a good one.

I am really enjoying this book. The first story seemed a little choppy, but the rest of the book is quite arousing.

I must admit that I was a bit nervous when I picked up Alison Tyler's collection of BDSM stories, Hurts So Good. BDSM isn't really my thing, and I was not looking forward to sifting through 200 pages of stories to find something I would enjoy.

But I trust Alison Tyler.

So I dove in.

And I am glad I did.

I found that there was a lot to enjoy in this book. The stories are well-written, and the action is steamy. Not every story is going to appeal to everyone (some are more intense than others), but anyone can find something arousing and appealing about stepping in to this world of complex power dynamics.

Tyler's love of spanking comes through in this book. I would have liked to see a bit more variety than the number of spanking stories included. However, since spanking is a common fantasy for many people, it seems like a logical place to start. And, who knows, maybe you will find something new you never knew aroused you!

Definitely worth a look-see! Take a risk and see what you discover!

"Hurts so Good" is packed full of excellent stories with varying themes. Even better, it includes stories from several of my favorite writers! My favorite stories from this anthology would have to be "Panty Lines" by Sommer Marsden - the building eroticism in this story is delicious; and "Sting" by Jessica Lennox - a surprise encounter at a tattoo parlor leaves a young woman painfully aroused.

I can't think of a single anthology edited by Alison Tyler that I haven't enjoyed, and this one is no different! Well done!
