Making the Hook-Up heats up the pages with characters from every walk of life who get in where they fit in. With African American erotica that brings an urban edge to sweet kink, Cole Riley has collected a sensational, authentic set of stories that revel in all the richness and variety of black men and black women's sexuality. Well-written, passionate, and provocative, this one-of-a-kind anthology is a feast for the senses and a treat for the soul. Cole Riley holds no bounds in this book of bold black erotica, with stories as creative as the soulful simmer of Nina Simone, as urgent as the barely concealed bite of bluesman John Lee Hooker, and as innovative as the muted moans of jazz trumpeter Miles Davis.

About the author (2010)

Cole Riley, an innovative voice in urban literature, produced several early street classics: Hot Snake Nights, Rough Trade, The Devil To Pay, The Killing Kind, Dark Blood Moon, and more recently, Harlem Confidential and Guilty As Sin. His erotica has been featured in many anthologies, including Intimacy and Maxim Jakubowski's The Mammoth Book of Best New Erotica. In literary legend Ishmael Reed's newest book, Mixing It Up, Riley is cited as one of the influences on top-notch crime scribes Richard Price, George Pelacanos, and others. He lives and writes in New York City. Making the Hook-Up "Ultimately a job extremely well done. A satisfying erotic collection of stories whatever color your skin is. Quite the most visceral collection of short stories I've ever delved into." — Champagne and Benzedrine, Eden Fantasys "This is a beautiful, soulful look at love, sex, and life from an African American point of view that never the less speaks to any and all people." — Airen Wolf, Eden Fantasys "The stories are almost all page turners. Many of them are filled with culture, and raw emotion, and colorful descriptions of places I've never been, foods I've never tried, and atmospheres I've never experienced. Cole Riley did an excellent job putting together this book." — Rayne, Eden Fantasys
