Definitely worth the read

I was looking for a new book of short erotic stories to read during my relaxation times to get me into the mood to play. I lately read several books but I cannot say that many of those got my full attention.
I was very pleasantly surprised that this book actually got me very interested. When I was reading the first story, I just could not put it down. I haven´t finished the whole book yet, because I do not wish to just read it all at once, although I really wish I could sometimes. The main theme seems to be dominate/submissive theme, but it is very light, so even a person who is not into a really strong BDSM can enjoy the book. I am into a light dom/sub play, spanking, having my hands tied, etc, which is why I like this book. If you are into harder play, you may not enjoy it as much as I do.
I am about half way through the book now. And I can say I enjoyed all stories so far. Some more, some less, depending on how it was written and how it hit my interest. But I can say that this book is one of the best collections of short stories I read so far. They seem well written and well thought through, each story different from the previous one. A very enjoyable and arousing read. I would highly recommend this book, get it if you can.
- Well written, well though through. Good stories, mild sub/Dom play.
- Some stories weaker than others, but that's expected.
- Bottom line
- Well written, relaxing and arousing read. I would recommend it.

I have had my eye on ‘The Red Collection’ for a while and was very excited to be chosen to test this book for LH. I like a mix of shorter stories that you can easily read in one sitting, and this collection doesn’t disappoint!
It is very good value for money as it is quick a thick book. I also love the cover as it makes it look very classy and not too ‘obvious’. There are 16 short stories, ranging from 12 to 40 pages in length, with 2 longer ‘novellas’ at the end- ‘Buddies Don’t Bite’, which is 86 pages, and Ill Met by Moonlight, which is 92 pages.
The stories cover a number of fantasies, but with a main theme around light BDSM - Master/Submissive, Mistress and Spanking. There is also a story that follows on from the previous one, which was very interesting and provides an opportunity to learn more about the same characters and relationship developed.
This book is a classy, sophisticated read and very well written. It has a lot of depth to the storytelling rather than just one sex scene following another. Look out for twists that follow some of the tales.
I would recommend this book if you are new to erotica and don’t like bad language for its own sake, and like your stories to have more depth to them.
- Good variety of stories, quality of writing.
- Could have had more detail in the BDSM themed stories.
- Bottom line
- Classy and sophisticated book with more depth than usual.
