Reviewed by K.C. Finn for Readers' Favorite

Loverless Love: Stories is a work of fiction in the romance and interpersonal drama subgenres. It is best suited to mature readers owing to the presence of sexual scenes and frank discussions of sex, romance, and adult relationships, and was penned by author Christopher Guerin. This fascinating work is split into seventeen distinct stories which explore different aspects of sexual behavior and the intrinsic human urge to pursue love, connection, and pleasure. From maintaining and crossing physical boundaries to sex found in art, nature, and the darker, stranger corners of our imaginations, Guerin presents a varied and exciting array of stories, all centered on a powerfully human theme.

Author Christopher Guerin laces every tale in this scintillating and fascinating collection with a great deal of smooth style, clever wordplay, and humor whilst also leaving plenty of space for a raw exploration of that which some still call taboo, even in this day and age. I enjoyed the variety of perspectives that were explored, and I felt that different genders and preferences were well acknowledged and not overgeneralized, which made the stories much more personal and interesting as we got to know different characters and their opinions on sex and love. “Succubus Tango” was a particular favorite of mine for its mysterious overtones and the ever-building suspense in the storytelling. Overall, I would certainly recommend Loveless Love to fans of exploratory, thought-provoking, and daring works about sex and relationships and those seeking a talented storyteller to narrate these ideals in a deeply engaging way.
