Sometimes reading sexy novels can be tiring, all that huff and puff over and over again with the same characters, which is why I’m a bit of a fan of the short story anthology. Little Raven 2 anthology is an impressive and diverse collection showcasing some great new talent.

Most of us prefer not to look at dark things. But sometimes we must, in the interests of wisdom and justice. I didn’t know what to expect when an advance reading copy of the novel Tampa by American author Alissa Nutting arrived on my desk. I hadn’t heard anything about it and, in hindsight, I’m glad. I wouldn’t want to have read this book with preconceptions.

I found this a tough and compelling read, and I'm still grappling with mixed feelings about it. Not Your Ordinary Housewife is a gruelling, and funny, and shocking, and, at its heart, a tragic love story. Nikki was once one of Australia's foremost porn queen's, loved and revered by thousands of men who wrote her intimate letters, swooned over her raunchy photos and videos, and masturbated endlessly to the fragrance of her used underwear.

If 50 Shades of Grey did nothing else (other than make a handful of people a LOT of money) it introduced stacks of women who, a) didn’t read much if at all; b) read only blockbusters, books recommended by friends or straight romance or c) both, to the pleasures of erotic fiction.
