This Story Is Red Hot

Publisher's Summary

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red.

Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.

The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting - but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red....

Contains mature themes.

Pushes sexual boundaries.

This is for you if you love explicit, erotic fantasy that pushes boundaries.

I was riveted listening to this, and as the story progressed I became exceedingly uncomfortable and squirmed because of the physical and mind twisting sexual acts. But I didn’t stop listening. My notions of sexual acceptability were pushed, stretched and exploded. This story is quite sex focused and if that is your preference, you will love it. But be warned, it starts off titillating, then ramps up the heat and pain, and boundaries are completely smashed. It’s not for everyone, and yet I can’t say more in case of spoilers. The allure here, is the erotic mystique of it all. I admit I listened non-stop to this story, but I don’t know if my heart can take another erotic fantasy of this nature by Tiffany Reisz. I’m sweating without having been for a run!

I loved the art journey the story took me on. I looked up all the paintings referred to. I then had a clear picture of what the participants were looking at and living through as the scenes went by in my head. A wonderful art experience.

The narrator, Elizabeth Hart performs all the voices, and I am impressed that she could convey the 25 year old Mona and mature Malcolm and others, and maintain an erotic sound and pace. That’s skill.

I would like to say: “this is not my cup of tea.” But I feel like that would be a lie because I marathon-listened to this story despite my discomfort and revulsion at times. That marathon impulse – the need to hear the story to the end and learn all the mysteries and secrets - leads me to rate this story highly – 5 stars. Having said that, I now need to listen to a very sweet romance with a lot of humour to recover from The Red :)

Nothing "Grey" about "The Red"

It's hot, it's funny, it's a wild adventure, it is captivating. "The Red" is the aging, small, failing art gallery Mona swore to her dying mother she would keep alive. Surrounded with fear and debt, Mona meets an elderly patron who promises to save the enterprise on one condition - Mona must make herself available to him for a year. As the meetings become more elaborate and impossibly extravagant, Mona becomes more and more concerned about her sensual customer and how his fantastical visions are possible, while becoming more and more worried that her donor may be unable able to fulfill his promise.

With lubricious language, Ms. Reisz, whose main weakness is a tendency to use "orgasm" as a verb, and with the sultry narration of Ms. Hart, this adult wonderland is a ride you will enjoy taking again and again.

Fun, erotic adventure

Tiffany Reisz is such a great storyteller. She certainly knows how to weave a tale. She's such a creative writer that makes you think outside of the box. I love how her mind works. This story is super steamy. You'll be trying to determine what's fantasy versus reality. I love the way Tiffany throws you for loops and then brings everything back around full circle. There's always a method to her madness. A unique story that enhances the imagination.

I give a 10 to Tiffany for a one of a kind story!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Tiffany Reisz has done it again! Gone where no author has gone before. Her creative mind - along with sexy and explicit scenes - when it comes to story-line, is refreshing. She does NOT use a cookie-cutter approach toward her master-pieces.

What other book might you compare The Red to and why?

None other - of what I've read. I've not read this story-line in any of the books I've read - and I've read 350+ romance erotic, contemporary, menage, etc. books by many authors. If you want to look for something different and sexy, tantalizing, Tiffany Reisz delivers.

Which character – as performed by Elizabeth Hart – was your favorite?

She is very good at distinguishing male and female voices so that you aren't guessing "...now who is this speaking?..." Kudos to Elizabeth

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The Art Master of her Dreams!

Any additional comments?

DAMN GOOD BOOK.....I was captured from the very beginning.

Tiffany Reisz is the queen of this genre

Nobody spins an erotic tale like Tiffany Reisz. Art history, power exchanges, dub con, creative group sex & a dash of the paranormal. No one else could possibly pull this mix off. I can’t wait to read the next one.

Strange and compulsive listening

At first I couldn't get in the book thinking it was going nowhere slowly but OMG I love it.

The imagination of the author is brilliant. It's 05.20am and I've just finished it having been awake listening.

thank you Tiffany Reisz for a marvelous story and thank you Elizabeth Hart for the retelling, magical
