A Ride to Remember by Sacchi Green

Book:  A Ride to Remember
Author:  Sacchi Green
Publisher:  Lethe Press

Sweet cracker sandwich!  It’s been a while since I tucked into Sacchi Green’s erotic shorts!!!          [Insert long suffering groan]

On second thought, maybe that wasn’t the best way to phrase that.  Let me try a do over:

A Ride to Remember is a spicy compilation of erotic short stories by one of the genre’s most honored Madams, Sacchi Green.  [Ah, much better, proceed now . . .]

In these thirteen stories, we meet a wide array of sexy women who know what they want and aren’t afraid to wrap their long, lean legs around her.  Among others, we’re treated to the likes of a lusty backwoods romp, a catty Salchow, a feast of Faeries and fresh fruit, a transgendered three-way, a taste of sweet cream, and a salacious seduction on the dusty trails of the Grand Canyon.

Don’t forget the garlic sausage and the girl from an alternate dimension!

The beauty of this juicy little collection is that there’s something for everyone, no matter what makes your pupils dilate or your mouth water.  It’s like a tasty little literary snack of girl-on-girl dim sum, accompanied by a flight of tangy, zesty, earthy, and downright savory dipping sauces.

Yup, mouth watering.  Definitely.  Mouth watering.

Seriously, Ms. Green is very much the classic artist, poet, storyteller, and naughty little vixen.  I tease, but throughout the entire collection, I was amazed by the machine gun dichotomies.  She showcased the ability to craft a gorgeous, breathtaking sentence or scene that leaves the reader murmuring, ‘Wow! Amazing! Beautiful!’ Then before you’ve recovered, you fall headlong into a wishing well of rounded buttocks, fleshy breasts, whipping tongues, long fingers, straining clits, and slippery cunts.

And once again, you murmur, ‘Wow! Amazing! Beautiful!’  But, it has a whoooooole different meaning the second time around.  Wink!  Wink! Nudge! Nudge! Know what I mean?

For the record, that’s not a criticism, it’s acknowledgement of the rare and special talent it takes to develop a saucy little story, draw stunning scenery, and breath life into sensual, red-hot characters in ten pages or less.

As noted earlier, this is a compilation of thirteen unique and artfully written stories.  Eleven were previously published, and two are new to this book.  My personal favorites are the leadoff, “To Remember You By”, and her sister story, “Alternate Lives”.  Both are rich, beautiful, sexy, sad, and stunningly triumphant; and these women will be a part of me for a very, very long time.

Of course, I also loved “The Outside Edge”, “Of Dark and Bright”, “Bright Angel”, and the funky little number, “Feeling Blue”. 

Ah, what the heck, I’m easy, I loved all of ‘em!

I’m always on the lookout for anything new from Sacchi Green, and she has delivered the goods in this lusty volume of erotica that sparks and sizzles from the cover all the way through to the end.  On the Rainbow Scale, I’ll give A Ride to Remember a 5.1 out of 6.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I need some alone time . . .
