Uniform Behaviour Review

Uniform BehaviourUniform Behaviour by Lucy Felthouse

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


If you like your books tucked and primped and put together like—well, a man or woman in uniform—Uniform Behaviour edited by Lucy Felthouse (of Erotica For All fame) is a book you should add to your TBR pile. Waiters in crisp uniform turn you on? Military men and women? Security guards, cops and priests (oh my!) Uniform Behaviour is a buffet of uniformly hot erotic fiction.

I did enjoy taking breaks during my writing day to sneak a story at a time—like eating a truffle between lunch and dinner—and savoring the collection. I found some real treats:

Lexie Bay is a new voice to me and her stories, yes two, stood out to me for various reasons but In Love and War had such an authentic voice for the young narrator, I actually teared up at one point (oh shut up, you!) and Taken With Consent was just a fun, sexy romp. It’s no surprise to me that Justine Elyot’s Guard Mounting was one of my favorites. I love Ms. Elyot’s voice and find her writing engaging and flawless and yummy—she so does not disappoint in this anthology. Elizabeth Coldwell was my hero with a fast-paced, hotter than hell spanking story—Strictly No Parking— that left me breathless and satisfied. But hands down, the stand-out star of this collection in my humble opinion was Craig Sorensen’s Lingua Acutus. The tone, the characters, the premise—that story stayed with me way beyond finishing the book.

So, my recommendation is grab yourself a copy and get comfy. At ease, soldier (priest, waiter, security guard, um…you get the picture). Go AWOL and read a good book.
