- Pride: The Sweetest Revenge by Lucy Felthouse
- Wrath: Something Else by Sara Masters
Seven Deadly Sins was reviewed this week by Crissy Cris and Felicity.
Crissy’s Review – 4.2
While these seven sins are considered deadly, the way lust, greed, gluttony, envy, sloth, pride, and wrath are delivered in these stories, is most unexpected. The characters are powerful, the storyline is mind boggling, and each story’s executed detail is just unimaginable. What I found to be this book’s strength was it’s deliverance, the ability to incorporate such high sexual content without losing the focus of the story’s message.
It’s astonishing how an author is able to create a scenario with such detail that you are pulled into one of the characters and your mind is taken over. You unravel the images in your mind, your body takes control, and suddenly you are there. For me, the originality of these stories stood out the most. The sex scenes were wildly descriptive but a tad overwhelming for my interest. There were a few editing imperfections but not enough to detract from the overall story.
I must admit I didn’t care for a couple of the stories. For instance, in reading Sloth, I became a bit agitated with the character India. In fact, the more I read, the more irritated I became with her. In summary, these are most definitely strong erotica stories and if this is your fancy, don’t pass up the opportunity to add this to your TBR.
- Plot 4.1
- Characters 3.8
- Sex Scenes 4.6
- Originality 4.9
- Editing 3.9
Felicity’s Review – 4.2
Seven Deadly Sins is a collection of erotic short stories compiled by Kojo Black. Each short story addresses one of the sins: lust, greed gluttony, envy, sloth, pride, and wrath. Each sin is written by a different writer giving each story a different voice. The stories have strong sexual content and are highly erotic in nature. Every sexual combination is explored in different ways within the theme of each story.
The collection is well written and the theme quite clear in all the stories. Each writer’s take on the sins is unique and clever, and it made for an overall enjoyable read.
As I previously stated, the sexual content is strong and quite graphic in nature and may not be suitable for everyone. I enjoyed the book and found many of the stories thought provoking and extremely confronting, in a good way.
- Plot 4.0
- Characters 4.2
- Sex Scenes 4.5
- Originality 4.1
- Editing 4.1
