About the Author

For the past ten years Kay Jaybee has lived a nomadic existence across the British Isles, collecting stories as she travels.

A number of her short stories have featured in anthologies published by Xcite Press, Black Lace, Mammoth Publications and Cleis Press, including Best Women s Erotica 2007 and 2008

More About the Author

If you need to find me on any weekday morning, then I'm usually to be found in the far corner of my favourite cafe, with a large black coffee in one hand, and a ballpoint pen in the other. I spend each and every morning immersed in thoughts of all things kinky, thoroughly enjoying the fact that most of my fellow caffeine sippers have no idea what I'm writing.

After ten years of compiling stories and poems, I can say without doubt, that there is NO going back for me. Once writing has you in its power you are at its mercy for life. It doesn't pay well, it leads to constant disappointment, and it takes over every other thing you do - but when the publisher says "Yes," and the occasional unexpected royalty cheque arrives in the post, it suddenly all seems worthwhile, and I LOVE IT!!

So far, Kay has written over 90 short stories and had 15 solo publications, including The Perfect Submissive Trilogy (The Perfect Submissive, The Retreat and Knowing Her Place, Xcite 2011-14), and the standalone novels Making Him Wait (Sweetmeats Press, 2012), The Voyeur (Xcite, 2012); the novellas Not Her Type (1001 Nights Press, 2013), Digging Deep (Xcite, 2013), A Sticky Situation (Xcite, 2012), and The Circus (Sweetmeats Press, 2011); the anthologies The Best of Kay Jaybee (Xcite, 2012), Tied to the Kitchen Sink, Equipment (All Romance, 2012), Yes, Ma'am (Xcite e-books, 2011), Quick Kink One, Quick Kink Two (Xcite, 2010), The Collector (Austin & Macauley, 1st ed. 2008, 2nd ed. 2012, and the short story "Punished" (Sweetmeats Press, 2013).

Kay also writes non erotic romance as Jenny Kane (Another Cup of Coffee, Another Cup of Christmas- Accent Press, 2013)

Such a unique book. The title was perfect for this book. The Collector. I know you are asking how I call an erotic book unique. Well, it is because the author has such a wonderful way with writing. I admit this is not my first Kay Jaybee book, and it will certainly not be my last. Kaybee, is such a wonderful author. The stories she writes are not just all sex, they each have meaning, plot, characters, challenges. This book is no exception to her wonderful work. Another amazing read by Jaybee. Thanks for the great read Kay.

Disclosure - I received a complimentary copy from the author which did not affect my honest opinion.

This really is a stunning set of stories! So diverse and yet all so enticing! Some are just plain kinky, some sweet, some are dark but all worth a read. My personal favourites were the `Treasure' and `Studio Girl' but that is because it touches my own preferred type of kink. But to state which story is your favourite seems so negative for it implies poorer stories but here each story has its unique beauty. There is the oddness of `Sweets' - which is a wonderful treat! There are some which are so short they are almost snippets of people's private affairs such as `Bad Behaviour', `The Candle Holder' and `Cupboard Lust'. Then there is `Executive School' less kink more character development - almost substance but nevertheless so arousing. The darker story of `Tequila' which has a wonderful final line which made me laugh out loud! Then there are those which have such wonderful descriptive power that they are so erotically charged such as, `Watching' and `Break Time'. These two are so hot!

These twenty stories are all penned by Kay Jaybee. Stories that she claims are overheard in coffee shops or on various modes of transport. I do not know how true this is but I know this lady can write. Her prose can be so descriptive and this is what makes this collection so wonderful. There is one story called `Late Developer' it is the least of the stories for erotic content yet for me it is the anchor of the collection. It makes me believe Kay Jaybee lurks in every coffee ready to pen her next story from overheard conversations. I for one will be on my own mission seeking out this Collector looking over my shoulder before I drink my next brew!

A woman, The Collector, gathers sexy, steamy, kinky stories wherever she goes. Bus, train, coffee shop, bar, you name it. Some stories she overhears and some she gets first hand from one or more of the people involved. One thing’s for certain…she’s never bored. This anthology has 21 naughty tales for your reading pleasure. I’m not going to review each one, but I’ll indicate my favorites out of the bunch with a *.

Sweets ~ I learned in an educational post to never, ever, ever put anything with sugar into a pussy. The sugar can cause a nasty infection.
The Experiment ~ The same thing here. Sugar in pussy=bad. Don’t want to mess with that. Ever.
