This anthology contains nine previously published short stories by Ms Sarai. All of these tale are very different from the other and yet all are intensely erotic. They are very, very good and well deserving and fitting of the LadyLit label.

1) Rush Hour – Ruth is a late for a corporate event. Its pouring rain and when she finally gets a cab another woman reaches it at the same time. They end up sharing much more than a cab ride! Hot, fast and fierce.

2) Burn Baby – Billie is a firefighter who is suffering from deep depression after losing her best friend to a fire. She is ordered to therapy where Dr Morgenstern has a special way of showing her that fire doesn't always have to hurt.

3) Making Memories – Nicki is on her way home after visiting her father in a nursing home when her tire blows. She walks to the nearest town where she is told her car cant be fixed till the next day. She ends up at an inn owned by Maggie. Over the evening they tell each other about their lost loves. Later in the night they make love. This is a very beautiful and descriptive story.

4) Business mogul Marta is speaking at a convention. Lori is a computer nerd who is taken with the woman in green velvet. Little does Lori know that the feeling is mutual and soon they are off to Marta's. What she has in mind is very, very hot.

5) The Architecture of Desire – Judith, the polished architect,and Toby, the young, tough bartender have an amazing time in the bar storeroom.

6) The First Stone – A nun at a half way house falls in lust with one of the residents who has noticed and decides to do something about it.

7) Sundae Bloody Sundae – Sub Jana has an eating disorder. Her Domme discovers a way to help her.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delivering Devices 18 June 2015
By John Ristow - Published on Amazon.com
Lisabet’s “Her Own Devices”

Lisabet Sarai has once again assembled a stellar group of her own stories, this time pertaining to love between women. Not to be concerned that these stories resemble each other. Each is independent of the rest and stands on its own merits. And the merits abound:

In “Rush Hour” we’re treated to Lisabet’s knack for building intensity in a situation. Kept me turning virtual pages. Hot sex!

“Burn Baby” comes with a heat. A literal heat, combined with the phenomenon regarding arousal of fear. A doctor brings relief to a sex-starved, lesbian firefighter in the form of disciplinary anticipation. Another good build, something for which Ms. Sarai shows a certain deftness.

In “Making Memory”, Lisabet’s fine atmospherics play a big part. Maggie reminded me of some rather self-sufficient women I’ve known. A sympathetic tale, sweet but not saccharine. Well-described unpleasant emotions. Engaging characters. Not to the point of maudlin. Good restraint in that sense. A very satisfying read.

In “Velvet” I personally like that Marta is into antiques. Shows sensitivity to art, which sensitivity can be extrapolated to include life and motivation. I always tried to explain to people how old and new compliment each other. Elements common to art and design. I also like that she gets so wet. Yum. Another satisfying ending.

“The Architecture of Desire”
I appreciated the abandon of this, the flat-out, sustained action and reaction. Boner-worthy for sure.

“The First Stone”
Love the convincing sense of ghetto accent. Serves to distinguish different backgrounds of the characters respective educations. Not over the top. Good portrayal of Catholic guilt and re-awakening of dormant desires.

A painful story to read. Quite effective. Sympathetic description of Nun Kathy’s prior life.

“Sundae, Bloody Sundae”
Takes the trust a submissive feels for her dom to another level of humanity. The warmth Mel feels for Jana is palpable. Nifty therapy concept!
Cool last line. :>)

“Clean Slate”
Cleanses a soul of it’s ‘monkey on its back’; in this case the monkey takes the form of a dragon tattoo.

“Her Own Devices”
Great take on a title. Cool story. I was kinda wondering why the man in this anthology, but Ms. Sarai made it work in the end.

In Summation-
What really stands out in this compilation is the very heat of it all. Quite effective sex scenes in all the stories.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short stories 11 June 2015
By Sheila Gallagher - Published on Amazon.com
9 short stories with the theme of female/female love. Some know what they want, others experiment. I enjoyed these stories. Some were a surprise while others I thought I knew what would happen. Sometimes I was right. Others, oops!

First up is Rush Hour. Ruth and Mina both go for the same cab when it rains. Both believe they have the greater need of it. Ruth isn't so nice about getting the cab but in the end the ladies discover a common ground and do what they want to do.

Burn Baby is about Billie whose partner died in a fire while she rescued a child. She is suffering from PTSD and her captain wants her to return to the job so he sends her to Dr. Morgenstern who has been successful in the past with other victims of PTSD. I was surprised by this one. Dr. Morgenstern shows Billie who is boss.

Making Memory has Nicole stranded in a small town because of car trouble. She stays at an inn whose widowed owner has an interesting outlook on life. I enjoyed this a lot. I liked the gentleness of the story.

Next comes Velvet. Loretta is at a conference where her business idol is the keynote speaker. Marta, her idol, seems to search her out and makes her an offer she does not want to refuse but what is the offer actually for? I liked the question of what Marta really wanted and what Lori wanted to choose.

The Architecture of Desire is a quickie between Judith and Toby. Again a surprise to me but I liked the quickness of the story.

The First Stone was an eye-opener. Magnolia is coming off the streets into rehab to beat her addictions. Sister Katherine Patrick works closely with those leaving rehab and reentering the community. She has a strong reaction to Magnolia. I liked the taboo feeling of it. Who will win--Magnolia or Sister Katherine?

Sundae, Bloody Sundae deals with BDSM and an emotional problem. It emphasizes the importance of communication between partners. It is not easy to guess what is wrong when one will not about themselves.

Clean Slate has Ally getting her tattoo removed by Luisa. I liked that Luisa put the questions of what is right for you and what do you want to Ally even if Ally did not give an answer. Luisa was honest.

The last story is Her Own Desires. It is a historical with a steampunk feel to it. Christopher is an inventor and is cutting into other brothel owners' profits. Lin Xiao Chung is supposed to seduce Chris and get the toys and secrets. I liked the honesty between the two of them. Though steampunk the setting was just right for this tale. I could not see it happening anywhere else nor during a different time period.

If you are looking for satisfying stories that can be read in one setting, look no further. This is the book

I received this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOT, Sexy and Fun! 9 June 2015
By Kent - Published on Amazon.com
Rush Hour was VERY HOT! I would love for this story to continue on. All I can say about Burn, Baby is WOW! Making Memory was another wonderful story. I love strong women charaters and Velvet definitely fits the bill nicely. The Architecture of Desire was a fun quickie. I've read The First Stone before somewhere. Interesting story. I've read Sundae, Bloody Sundae before as well. Good story. I really enjoyed Clean Slate. I would love for this story to continue. Lisabet saved the best for last! Her Own Devices was an amazing and fun story. I was a little confused in the beginning, but I believe that was the point. Very well done! I would love to continue reading about Christine and Lin's journey.

7) Sundae Bloody Sundae – Sub Jana has an eating disorder. Her Domme discovers a way to help her. This is erotic and very endearing.

8) Clean Slate – Ally, a former gang member, has gone to Luisa to have her tattoos removed. Luisa has fallen in love and by making Ally's skin a blank canvas, she has offered the girl a world of choices. This one was my favourite, it was full of hope and promise.

9) Her Own Devices – Lin has gone to Burton's home at the request of her Master, Wu. She is to find out why his brothel is so successful and to obtain the sex machines he uses. In exchange Wu offers Lin to her for keeps. Little does Lin know there is a pleasant surprise waiting for her.
