When the stress of city living takes its toll on Annie and Tim, a dirty weekend in the country visiting sexy friends proves to be just the antidote.

London life is hard going for Annie and Tim, and despite being in love, they’re just not hitting the spot in the bedroom.
So, in an attempt to put the steam back into their relationship, Tim whisks Annie to the Cotswolds to visit Matt and Jane his uber-cool, sexually liberal friends from University.

As the temperature heats to melting point in the chocolate box cottage so does the sex, and Annie, with the help of her hosts, discovers a variety of hidden carnal desires, not just in herself but also Tim.

Who would have thought he’d be into that? Who would have thought ‘that’ would have her buzzing from head to toe?

Reader Advisory: This book contains Ménage scenes and both M/M and F/F intimacy.

This was a HOT little piece.. I absolutely loved how sexy and fun and carefree everyone was even though some where new and some had known each other for a bit. That’s what made it so great.
Our main couple joins a couple other people and things nearly immediately take off and show that even though they’d been together a year, there was some spice (and skill) missing in the bedroom.
Another great read by Lily Harlem.. As usual, she never lets me down with her very well written pieces, even though this one was short, it was still excellent and easy to read without any eye rolling or unbelievability to the characters.
As promised, this is a very hot, sexy story. There really isn’t much plot other than the sex. That’s not usually my cup of tea, but I found myself enjoying this. The characters were surprisingly well-drawn for such a short work with an erotic focus.There were some creative liberties taken with various sex acts that would have been unlikely in reality, and a couple of things that made me a little uncomfortable. For example, even though Annie clearly had the option to say no, and she ended up enjoying herself, Tim should have told her ahead of time what they were doing. Also, unless it’s been agreed to ahead of time, performing sex acts on a sleeping person is a no-no. There might be people who would be more bothered by that than I was.

Otherwise, this was a fun read, and I would be willing to read more of Ms. Harlem’s work.

This is a well written, Hot little quickie.

It will keep you turning the pages to see what will happen next or who is doing who next.
 If Tim wanted to Amp up his sex life with Annie Im pretty sure he found a way she will never forget! And it may have made the difference in there relationship
If you are looking for something quick to read that is full of hot and steamy sex this would be the book for you!.

Lily Harlem is a multi-published, award-winning author of contemporary erotic romance. She lives in the UK and writes for several publishing houses including Ellora’s Cave, HarperCollins, Xcite and Total-E-Bound. She also features in numerous UK and US anthologies, some of which all proceeds go to charity.

Her books are a mixture of full length novels and short stories, some are one offs, some are sequels or part of a series (all can be enjoyed as stand-alone reads). What they all have in common are colourful characters travelling on everyone’s favourite journey — falling in love. If the story isn’t deliciously romantic and down and dirty sexy, it won’t be written, at least not by this author. So with the bedroom door left well and truly open you are warned to hang on for a steamy, sensual ride – or rides as the case might be!
