This anthology consists of two very short stories. "Jewels of Desire" by D. Musgrave is the story of Sabrina, whose new boyfriend Jack has her wear a piece of erotic jewelry to work one day. It is certainly hot, but I found that I didn't really care for Sabrina. I would have appreciated learning something more about her besides her need to orgasm.
"Butterfly's Effect" by Michelle Houston, however, was really enjoyable. Elaine is Steve's boss during the day, but she is his sub in private. Steve wants her to go public with their romance, and his methods for convincing her just sizzle. I liked this couple, and their story was well worth the read. I give 3 stars to "Jewels of Desire" and 4 to "Butterfly's Effect". Both are sexy, and this short read can be completed while waiting for your nails to dry.
