summary from Goodreads
The Queen of Erotica and New York Times bestselling author Zane presents Z-Rated, the next book in the Steamy, uncut, and sensually satisfying Flava anthology series. Just when you thought that Chocolate Flava, Caramel Flava, Honey Flava, Sensuality, and Succulent had hit all the right spots—there’s nothing like Z-Rated, the hottest Flava book yet. Handpicked by Zane, Z-Rated features some of the most creative, most talented writers in erotica, including stories from favorites like Cairo, Allison Hobbs, and a story by Zane herself. Featured are twenty-seven scintillating tales that will take your mind away from the day to day and straight into the erogenous zone—your perfect escape. Read, fantasize, and move beyond X-rated . .
I haven't read Chocolate Flava 1 and 2 so I didn't know what to expect. I knew that this book would be straight erotica with very little plot, zero romance and mucho sex. I was not disappointed (in that aspect).
Chocolate Flava 3 is a compilation of short stories by different authors. Some stories are sexy and hot (you might need a towel once you finish reading them) and others were borderline nasty and not sexy at all. Most of the short stories are told in 1st person POV which worked for most of the stories. But the ones that were kind of icky, I really wanted to be out of that person's head.
If you want just straight sex scene after sex scene with a little dialog thrown into the mix, then this is the book for you.
A lot of the stories did keep me entertained and some of the sex scenes were well-written which surprised me. I will admit I did have extremely low expectations when I started reading this book so some of the well written, sexier stories were a pleasant surprise. But I think this is my last and final time reading anything by or with Zane's name attached to it. Just not my cup of tea.
