Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From a bold and captivating voice comes a collection of stories that probes women's darkest passions and pushes the boundaries of erotic fiction. Sometimes romantic, sometimes raw, Zane appeals to men and women alike with these tales of intoxicating sensuality.

THE Sex CHRONICLES

SHATTERING THE MYTH

Anyone who thinks that men are by nature more sexual than women or that African-American women are especially inhibited hasn't read Zane. Here, she presents an erotic read in three parts: Wild, Wilder, and Off Da Damn Hook. With a unique ability to tell it like it is — and also to tell it like it could be in your wildest dreams — Zane crafts stories about everyone from the sensual housewife who wants her husband to experiment more to a secret underground sorority of women that organizes some rather unconventional social events. By turns tender and outrageous, The Sex Chronicles is a pleasure from beginning to end.

Synopsis:

The original scintillating collection of erotica from the bestselling author of "Addicted" and "The Heat Seekers." Zane shatters the myth that men are more sensual in their nature than women and that African-American women, in particular, are inhibited compared to their female counterparts from other culture groups.

About the Author

Zane is also the author of Addicted, Shame on It All, and The Heat Seekers. She lives near Washington, D.C.

This is a collection of short stories of the erotica nature, all told from the woman’s perspective. These are the fantasies of ladies and by and large have some romantic element and all focus on the woman’s pleasure. Not to say the men involved aren’t having a good time. The collection starts off pretty tame, then gets a little wild, and by the end the stories are, for most women, full-blown crazy, steamy fantasy. Most of the stories feature couples, though a few feature more than 2 participants. A few stories are parties or weekend-long events that have many people enjoying exploring their sexuality.

Most of these stories were fairly short, so they were perfect for folding laundry together with my man. Of course, I started the book on my own, but then noticed he was listening in here and there. So, I started making it a habit for folding the laundry. It’s amazing how much assistance I got with this menial chore while this book was on in the background ;) . Many of the tales were sweet, but none stinted on the details. I loved that each and every one of them was focused on the woman’s pleasure and told from her point of view. While not every fantasy was for me, there was plenty there for my man and I to ‘discuss’ later.

I have a little confession to make: I didn’t realize this collection was not only written from women’s point of views, but from African-American women’s point of views. Honestly, I didn’t notice in particular until I started looking up the author in preparation for this review. I think women from any cultural background could find something to enjoy in this book. This is also my first exposure to Zane and her works, though I doubt it will be my last. Apparently, this book is also the basis for the same titled series on Cinemax. I may have search for that…..and perhaps my man could help with the vacuuming in the living room while it is on? ;)

It was great to see that the featured women came from several walks of life: business woman, scientist, gym janitor, etc. If I have any complaints, it is a minor one: Sometimes the little pet names the lovers bestowed upon one another were the same story after story, which occasionally made it difficult to keep the stories distinct, the characters separate, in my mind. But, let’s be honest, I wasn’t listening to this book for the individual characters.
