Excellent choice for spicing up your scenes or your fantasies

This book is a collection of stories where BDSM is featured.  If you are not interested in reading stories that are 100% BDSM, then don't purchase this book.  I think it's important to get this message out to the potential readers first.  It isn't good for either the reader or the author to have someone purchase the book knowing you will not like it.

But if you are into 100% BDSM stories, this book is for you.  And what I mean by that is there is no pretense in any of these stories of any plot beyond the sex.

If you're looking for ideas to spice up your own scenes, look no further.  You'll find an abundance.
If you are turned on by BDSM play but keep it confined to your fantasies, look no further.  No two stories are alike.

Reviewing an anthology is challenging because there is the urge to review each separate story on its own merits and that's would be a daunting task.

This anthology is not repetitive.  There is more than enough variety, and the scenes run the spectrum from almost sweet all the way to almost too much pain.  There is something for everyone.

While I enjoyed every story, I can't help but point out my favorites.  

"The Encounter" by Eden Darry was beautifully written and surprised the hell out of me.
I loved the smoking hot power struggle in "Taking the Lead" by Lauren Jade.
"Latin Lessons" by Lise MacTague took us to an ancient setting where innocence and BDSM collide in quite a sexy scene.  This story did wonders for my dreams.  It's the last one in the book, and I went to sleep just after finishing it.  Ooh, La, La!

Harper Bliss & Co., I give you four stars for From Top To Bottom.  I would like to have read a bit more plot with the stories to bring it to five stars.  But if you aren't looking for plot, this is without a doubt a five star BDSM anthology!

I'm not a sex therapist. I just play one in books. After thirty years in technology providing therapy to unsuspecting software and systems engineers, she's now counseling fictional people as a fictional sex therapist in the Thalia Chase: Sex Therapist series.
