Sears plays around with some traditional values when it comes to marraige, with the 'wife' wanting most the usual elements: kids, love, life outside in the sunshine where she can hold hands and smooch. But being human and married to who she is, things are a little more complicated....

This could have gone novella, with the potential to have had some more very funny and sexy scenes. I'd opt closer to 3.5 overall for this one, purely because this could have been so much better as a longer work. But in general, not a bad short story.

I loved this story, it was really short but even in its small amount of pages held more wit, jokes and a more structured plot than books 40 times its size :) I've re-read it several times and still love it. I'd recommend a buy

This was fun to read, and the characters are great. Red is surprisingly charming. I look forward to another instalment.

HASH(0x8d785dc8) out of 5 stars Defining Normal 26 Nov. 2012
By Lena Winfrey Seder - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Lorraine Sears' short story "Big Red" packs a punch as she masterfully leads the reader to empathize with Big Red (the Devil). She turns evil inside out, and we gain a new perspective on existence and relationships.

Lindsay was a normal girl who wanted a normal life of love, marriage and babies. However, on her 21st birthday she gets the shock of her life when a red demon appears and places a ring on her finger. Suddenly, she is married! She learns a dark secret that her soul had been signed away in marriage to the Devil since her infancy.

Lindsay holds stubbornly to the fact that she wishes he'd free her so she can get back to a normal life. And yet what is normal?

Big Red truly loves her and promises to give her any gift she wants. Yet, she insists she wants freedom though she has moments of pity for Big Red. She clings to the idea of a normal life. Big Red tries clinging to her, as she is the only pure thing he loves in his life.

Suddenly, the story shifts gears as Lindsay is haunted by a ghost from the past who indirectly teaches her the true meaning of love and sacrifice.

Can Lindsay find it in her heart to give up her notions of normal to see the infinite possibilities of a unique love?

Lorraine's humor is refreshing and her skill at giving us a unique, heart-touching story is superb! She changes our perspective by the end of the story. This is a story well worth reading!

*Book source ~ Many thanks to Untreed Reads for providing a review copy in exchange for an honest review.

When she was a baby Lindsay’s dad sold her to the Devil as a bride in exchange for his soul, so when Lindsay turns 21 and Big Red (her name for him) shows up and claims her as his she’s quite surprised. And not in a good way. All she wants is to live a normal life and all Big Red wants is for Lindsay to be happy. How on Earth (and in Hell) are they going to resolve this situation?

I love, love, love this story. Lindsay’s dilemma, Big Red’s dilemma and the evil that is her dad. Well-written with great characters, for such a short story I was completely sucked in from the beginning and then when it ended I just wanted it to go on and on. I will definitely be checking out more books by Lorraine Sears.

It's a cute story, however it's only 10 pages long. More insight into the characters would have been nice. Overall I recommend the story but be prepared to wish it was longer and more in depth.
