Today's guest post in my Sexy Stories series is from Lucy Felthouse, talking about the fiction that turns her on....
Fiction That Turns Me On by Lucy Felthouse
One of the best erotic books I've read this year is That Filthy Book, by Lily Harlem and Natalie Dae. It's an erotic romance about a married couple. The woman, Karen, read a filthy book full of sex tips and positions, and it's given her ideas. Very kinky ideas. When the two of them go away for their wedding anniversary without their children, Karen decides to use some of the naughty things to help spice up their sex life. She loves Jacob deeply, but they've fallen into a rut. Jacob, luckily, is more than happy to help Karen out with her dirty fantasies, and this starts off a sexy whirlwind adventure for the two of them and brings them closer together.
I loved everything about this book. The plot itself is brilliant, unique and engaging. The characters are fantastic, and the fact that they're a married couple that have been together a while just made the whole thing so much more real. For such a filthy book (it really is filthy), it's also really heartwarming when Karen and Jacob discover things about one another and their relationship. And the things they get up to... well! Let's just say this isn’t a read for the fainthearted. It's a seriously sexy, edgy read and one that will stay with you for a long time after reading. This is proven by the fact that I read this several months ago and have probably read 50 or 60 books since, and yet I still remember That Filthy Book. It's well-written, kinky, erotic and romantic. What's not to love?As a writer, I do find that I can't just read a book. I don't do it on purpose, but I analyse things as I go along with an editor's and proofreader's hat on. I spot repetition, clunky sentences, spelling mistakes, etc. Unfortunately, if there is too much of this type of thing, it pulls me out of the story and ruins my enjoyment. Luckily, That Filthy Book is well-written and has been well-edited and therefore I was able to enjoy it for what it is—top-notch erotic romance
Thanks so much for having me here, Elizabeth. I've enjoyed dishing the dirt on my favourite book. Don't forget to buy yours:
Three sexy Sapphic tales from the pen of Lucy Felthouse:
No Boys Allowed
When Leigh goes to meet with some potential housemates in a sought-after part of London, all she’s interested in is making a good impression. The last thing she’s expecting is to find out that one of the girls is a lesbian, like her. Kacey’s not home yet, but when she arrives, Leigh knows one thing for sure: she’s smitten. But will her feelings be reciprocated?
Something in Common
Nerd and amateur photographer Justine is partaking of one of her favourite pastimes—visiting a historical site—when she bumps into Amber. It turns out they’re both equally enthusiastic about exploring stately homes, abbeys, stone circles and the like—and their surprise at meeting someone with similar interests leads them on another adventure together, which doesn’t end at the site.
Little Miss Goody Two Shoes
Izzy and her girlfriend are visiting a beautiful stately home in the British countryside. Taking a stroll around the garden, Izzy’s shocked to see a statue of a female—totally naked. Her girlfriend, astounded that Izzy is such a prude and a Little Miss Goody Two Shoes, proceeds to show her just what fun can be had in a country garden with a statue to hide them from prying eyes.
