A collection of stories all about coming out—whether that be a woman first discovering a love of women, someone who knows she loves women finding first love, lesbians coming out to the public about their love, or lesbians coming out about their enjoyment of BDSM play or loving other butches or femmes. Most of the stories feature young women in their teens and twenties, while a few feature older women.
In Becoming Wild, an ultra-feminine college student drunkenly kisses her best friend on spring break, and discovers that she wants more from her. In Wellington Nights, an insecure young femme virgin hooks up with an older, experienced butch who teaches her the pleasures of making love with a woman. In Flannel and Fleece, a divorced woman living in a small Colorado town finds love when she is seduced by the hot butch in town.
Overall, these stories are well-written, with well-developed characters and interesting plots full of the longing, excitement, and apprehension of coming out. There’s a good balance of romance and eroticism in each story. The sex scenes vary from sweet and loving to intensely erotic (or both), with a lot of erotic touching and kissing, breast play, hand jobs, and cunnilingus. A couple of stories feature BDSM scenarios (dom/sub dynamic, spanking, light bondage) while the rest of the stories are BDSM free.
A good choice when you want a variety of well-written, sexy stories all about women coming out and trying things for the first time.
