Allie has held a brightly burning torch for Wade since college. They were part of a writing group together, and everything about those days with him and their friends Kitty and Cameron fills her with longing. When their former Professor leaves them his rambling mansion in his will, it’s a chance for them to reunite. But there’s more than friendship bubbling beneath the surface.As secrets are revealed and relationships rekindled, the stories get dirtier and the stakes get higher. And now Allie’s realized that she isn’t quite sure who she wants…fun-loving Wade, or quiet, restrained Cameron. Neither have been honest about their feelings, and now they have the chance to act on all of the tales that ignite their most primal desires.

A mansion available for whatever you want to do, if you dare to show up.

Charlotte Stein’s work is always hot. I mean, burn your fingers as you read hot. Telling Tales is no exception. The writing is, for the most part, tight – there are a few hiccups and places I had to reread, but nothing big.

From an erotic point of view, this is a great book. There’s a lot of sex. A lot of sex. Experimentation and giving in to desire abounded on every page. If you want hot, then this is the book.

I tend to want a little more plot with my erotic elements and this book seemed a bit lacking. I never really got to know the characters or what drove them. All the time in bed trumped character development. I wanted to know more about Cameron’s submissive side or how they got to the ending I completely didn’t see coming. I like rich descriptions and I didn’t seem to get them.

Still, I enjoyed Telling Tales. It’s rich with eroticism and sexual adventure. Yes, Telling Tales is a good book. There is a boatload of heat. If you want a book that’s heavy on the sex and the escapism, then this might be the book for you.
