smut in the cityReviewed by Sandra Scholes

Why This Type of Anthology: Different people have views on what is smutty, some think it is a bad thing full of thoughts of men in dirty mackintoshes holding brown paper bags full of pornographic material, but that isn’t always the case. If readers have seen comedy movies such as the Carry On ones, they will know that this type of comedy exists for those who understand and like it, and it’s just as fun as seaside postcards.

What is Smut in the City: This anthology wants to evoke the feeling of being in the hustle and bustle of the city, where the naughty leers and sensual looks from all around you are supposed to be the introduction to what would be a sensual, sexual affair, and this could happen anywhere in any city from a man or woman in a shop, store, office giving you one of those long, lingering stares, to a wink that could mean more than just a twitch. Urban fantasy is where it’s at with these stories.

Does it Live up to the Hype: For the most part it does what it says in the introduction, the stories are funny, creative, and sexy in a way that is fresh and new, but some of the stories are a bit slow to get going, and don’t seem to fit into the theme. My favourites are Lights Out by M.A. Stacie, Verona by Geoff Chaucer, and Saturday on a Tuesday by Giselle Renarde.

Outcome: I liked some of the stories, they had more fun and excitement than I expected.

Rating: ★★★★☆
