    1 thought on “Yearn

    1. I loved the cover of Yearn so much I just had to pick it up. The voluptuous, tattooed woman floating with a crimson parasol had the allure of the off-beat. She promised a lot, but could she deliver? Erotic fiction is difficult. Badly written, it is smutty, embarrassing or just plain boring. Too much sex and it becomes the opposite of erotic. I am reminded of the over-achieving couple who doggedly set out to have sex every day for a year. Ho hum, I bet the champagne corks were popping at the end [...]

    2. I liked “Tremble”, the old collection of short stories. Unfortunately the new one was lacking on many levels. I hope she writes something as good as the "Witch of Cologne" was. The "Yearn" became repetitive and boring in the second part.

    3. A prize from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program that I was super excited about! I can’t even count the number of boxes Yearn’s synopsis checked off for me: “Atmospheric and Lyrical” erotica “for readers eager to move beyond Fifty Shades of Grey“.Happily, it more than lives up to this description.Yearn has also been described as “a thinking woman’s erotica,” something I am extremely fond of given my propensity to overthink my reading material. However, I don’t think the [...]

    4. + : I liked how the stories contained details of the stories before them, linking them without really making a link, just a hint here and there that made it more into a whole.- : That being said, this was not my cup of tea. I was not seduced, even worse, I've felt as if the magic was being pulled out of the sex and love-making. To me it fell flat. It was empty and at times I didn't really get the flow of the story. It left me rather confused and unsatisfied. = This book has in some ways potentia [...]

    5. To be fair, I have to admit that I'm probably not the intended audience for this kind of books. ((view spoiler)[I mean, I'm one to think that any TV show and/or movie relying on sex scenes to sell itself is kinda bad although to be honest, it's like 75% of them have to throw in at least one scene at some point so hmm Okay I'm not sure what my point is precisely. (hide spoiler)]) But you know, I kinda wanted to try to understand what the hype about these was and I still don't get it. I picked thi [...]

    6. I haven't received my copy yet, just received notice I had won. 12/10/13Received my copy and hope to start soon. Have 9 more plus my current read in front. 12/19/13Started 1/17/14finished 1/24/14Several short stories with an element of erotica loosely tied together in a series of events. The writing was good, the story lines interesting, and the sex scenes were passable. I just had two glaring issues and it was hard for me to get past them. First the story of the movie star on the airplane. I wi [...]

    7. There are so many things I liked about this book! I love that the author has a vivid imagination. Her writing style is simply beautiful. The characters in the short stories were often complex and flawed, and so well written I felt like I one of them. I enjoyed that the stories were all linked to one another, even if only by a name drop. Probably my favorite thing is that this isn't pure smut. By that I mean it's not short stories like "so-and-so met this person and then -BAM- graphic raunchy sex [...]

    8. Erotica, magic and fantasy abound in this Tobsha Learner collection. Like her previous story collection, there is pretty much something for everyone here. Did I like them all? No, but I liked enough to recommend it. Her stories are well conceived, complete and interesting, sometimes downright titillating. I don't think anyone would be reading straight through, this is the kind of material that is best in short bursts, which the author delivers!*I received my copy from NetGalley in exchange for a [...]

    9. I enjoyed reading this book the most at the beginning. The first story was, to me, the most interesting. As it progressed I felt the connections between each short story growing weaker. This made it seem a bit more disconnected than I would have liked. However, as a series of independent short stories it is fun to read and it does not waste time on purple prose. It is simple and fun. Not a serious study but an enjoyable aside from more serious readings.

    10. Got this book for pre-review reading. The short story format was very good the stories varied and kept you entertained. Fun read.
