The Red by Tiffany Reisz
I wish I could take a peek inside Tiffany Reisz's brain, I would love to know how she comes up with these wonderfully bizarre story lines. Her writing is impeccable and she gives us crazy characters we come to adore. The Red is no different. At times I wasn't sure where she was going, which I LOVE in a book, and the erotic scenes were beautifully over the top. The Red is wildly entertaining and the sex is like nothing I've ever read. In a word, it was brilliant.
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...
