Midwest Book Review (in "Small
Press Bookwatch"; 5 stars on Amazon)
absolutely love Robert Scott Leyse’s Liaisons for
Laughs: Angie & Ella's Summer of Delirium. Leyse
is the editor of the popular erotica website Sliptongue and
his first book release is fun, steamy, and intelligent."

Salacious. Those rich, naughty, mannered words from another
era are given a cunning and contemporary twist in Leyse’s
reinvigoration of a classic literary form--the epistolary.
At a time when so many ‘real life’ intimacies
are overlooked because we’re too tired to be seduced
or to instigate some imaginative new direction in our mortgage
anxious relationships, it’s refreshing to be reminded
of the pleasures, prurient and also just plain human and often
very funny, of overhearing other people’s intimacies.
Fun and eroticism don’t go together nearly often enough.
They do in Leyse tit for tat. This is clever, humane, word-sensual
Kris Saknussemm, author of Zanesville and
can feel the humidity in your own backyard as Angie and Ella
soak up the summer in New York with various paramours with
their super sexy, sex-positive attitudes. This is one of those
books that, finally, puts sluts in their rightful places.
They aren’t shameful or shamed. They’re proud
of it, and having the time of their lives, and the reader
Susan DiPlacido, author of 24/7 and House Money
for Laughs re-enlivens a venerable literary tradition,
the epistolary novel, but now in an arousingly contemporary
form. The erotic e-mails of these two libidinous heroines
recount their escapades with wicked charm and droll humor.
Their tales memorialize the lusty landscape of the New York
corporate world, and the bratty sophistication of their narrative
voices makes their sensual adventures all the more appealing.
Angie and Ella are trollops for our time, and Robert Scott
Leyse is a Trollope for our time.”
