Lipstick on His Collar- Brigid Coady
The third instalment of the Kiss Collection has arrived, and it's got a more adult feel. The First Kiss was tender and sweet, The Last Kiss an acutely painful read about goodbyes.
Lipstick on His Collar is a different beast entirely. Still a short, one sitting read of approximately 1,000 words, it explores the emotion and sexual tension within an illicit relationship. It did make me feel a bit voyeuristic and uncomfortable at times, watching the event unfold, yet I couldn't bring myself to stop reading.
These short stories are wonderful, some of my favourite reads so far this year. Passionate and powerful, Lipstick on His Collar is a dangerous romantic short that I feel almost guilty for enjoying. But enjoy it I did. You can find out more by clicking on the link below.
Lipstick on His Collar is out now, published by Harper Impulse, a digital imprint of Harper Collins.
With thanks to the publisher for providing me with a copy of this book in return for my honest opinion.
