VoElla Book Corner Review – Sun Strokes by Kojo Black

Everyone is tired of the long, never ending Winter so this time we’re reviewing an anthology from Sweetmeats Press – London guaranteed to heat up the winter air. This anthology is a quick read, perfect for Spring Break and a day at the beach. This is erotica in it’s rawest form and is not suitable for readers under the age of 18!

Book Review – Sun Strokes by Kojo Black

Reviewed by Crissy Cris and Susan Byrum Sun Strokes contains four short stories with a steamy, sun drenched theme.


From “First, in The Chalet, guests shed their inhibitions as quickly as they shed their clothes. Then, a young woman has a wonderful sexual awakening in Beaches and Cream; before a hot Summer In the City gets as debauched as any beach vacation! And finally, two voyeuristic writers are in for a big surprise deep in a Finnish Wood.

Crissy’s Review – 4.4

VBC-Heart-4-4This is a collection of short stories with steamy encounters among strangers, friends and lovers.

Three encounters make up The Chalet. The first, set at poolside where two strangers, a man and a woman give in to their sexual desires. in the second, a woman recounts her sexual experiences while performing self gratification. Lastly, a trio of friends satisfy their urges after dinner.

In Beaches and Cream, a chaotic story of two families unravels and a sexual encounter between two women unfolds on a holiday trip. In Summer in the City we follow Stephanie through several sexual encounters, each one unique and different. Lastly, in Finnish Wood we experience a provocative dream sequence and voyeurism.

These four stories are sure to take you on a carnal ride. The content seemed, for the most part, to be unrealistic, but I guess that’s what makes it that much more gripping. The book feeds your most primitive mind. If you’re looking for your next hot, steamy, racy read, then this is the book for you.

Susan’s Review – 3.9

VBC-Heart-3-9Quite frankly, I’ve struggled with the review of this book largely due to my own expectations when I read a book. I enjoy reading erotica but I like it tempered with a well-developed story with complex characters and an intriguing plot. Unfortunately, this anthology offered erotica but not the remainder. For me, it was just about sex, sometimes in it’s most hedonistic form. As a cautionary note, this book contains sexual situations not only between men and women, but two women and a ménage thrown in. This may not be appealing to some readers.

Even though the book was limited in plot and character depth, the sexual encounters we’re graphic and well written. They should satisfy most readers of hard core erotica. It’s definitely a quick read and a good one to take to a day at the beach!
