DEATH LOVE LUST.
Death is definite. Love is infinite. Lust is eternal.
In the end, death always wins. And what of the threads that remain? Love? Lust? The desire to feel both? The desire to return to the living and feel again? Because, despite death, the heart will forever pine for the love that once was; the love that was once tangible but now is reflected back only in memories and photographs. Both love and lust are stronger than death and will always linger long after life is pulled from us. Because of this we will always remain definite, infinite, and eternal.

I received an ARC of this book in an exchange for an honest review, THANK YOU :-).
As I normally review teen appropriate YA books I better stress the fact that this anthology is for 18+ Adults Only!
I love anthology’s! I think they are great for getting a little peep at different authors ‘voices’ and finding new favorites.
The Death-Love-Lust Anthology is a collection of adult poems and short stories exploring, you guessed it, death love and lust, featuring both hetero and homosexual couples – oh and delicious demons and righteous reapers.
The poems are absolutely beautiful, I read them all multiple times.
The stories range from dark and mysterious to sexy and sinful, with beautiful deep everlasting love shining through.
Normally I’d stay away from erotica that dabbles with death, but as the lovely Lily Luchesi was a part of it and given how I really enjoy her Paranormal Detective series, I gave it a go. I was pleasantly surprised! This is a collection of well-rounded pieces connecting life, death and love. Obviously there were some stories I preferred over others, but as a whole it was a really enjoyable, engaging and entertaining read.
