Toy Boy by Lily Harlem

Getting something unexpected can be a shock, but it can also be a wonderful treat, if you allow yourself to indulge, that is.

Kay is bubbling with excitement. She’s booked a sailing holiday of a lifetime in Greece with a man she’s fallen for hook, line and sinker. They met on the Internet. She’s from Oxford, he’s from Washington State. She’s a business lecturer, he runs his own successful business.

They’re perfect for each other, and she can’t wait to meet him and spend time in and out of his bed, allowing him to seduce her for real and not just with softly spoken words over the telephone.

But when she arrives in the idyllic port of Fiscardo, she’s in for a shock. There’s a reason Sullivan’s photographs were grainy, and it’s not because he’s sporting a potbelly or balding as she’d suspected. It’s because he’s over a decade younger than her and could rival any Greek god in the looks department. What’s more, his sex appeal and lust for her is off the scale.

Should Kay take what she can with her ‘toy boy’ and have some fun in the sun or hop on the first plane back to England? It’s a tricky decision for a woman who believed she couldn’t be surprised by life anymore.

I have read some of Lily's books that were MM so when I had the chance to read one of the MF books I was SUPER excited! And I have to say officially the MF books are just as sexy and well written as the MM books. There was so much turmoil in this book about the age difference between Kay and Sullivan.

I loved how they worked through that little difference and spent the time they had together while developing a relationship that had been developed online. It really worked for me because we got snippets of what their conversations had been like and felt the way Sullivan had treated her and her emotions for him.

Lily's characters are so well developed I felt like I was watching the people in front of me instead of reading a book. Such an excellent read!!

This is a lovely, hot atmospheric read, which I could not put down. It is the perfect length and although there is reference to their long online relationship, this book deals with a week in their lives. It is set in the Greek Islands, which anyone who has been (or watched Mamma Mia) will know are magical, romantic places.

The very sensible, but lonely university lecturer throws caution to the wind when turning up to meet someone that she has only a blurry photo of ... but hours of phone ... and online conversations! So much build up can only lead to some kind of unexpected.

I was left wanting more ... which I generally consider to be a good thing, and may have had to look at Aegean sailing holidays once I turned the last page! Lucky Kay – would be my summary of this engaging read!

Lily Harlem lives in the UK with a workaholic hunk and a crazy cat. With a desk overlooking rolling hills her over active imagination has been allowed to run wild and free and she revels in using the written word as an outlet for her creativity.

Lily's stories are made up of colourful characters exploring their sexuality and sensuality in a safe, consensual way. With the bedroom door left wide open the reader can hang on for the ride and Lily hopes by reading sensual romance people will be brave enough to try something new themselves? After all, life's too short to be anything other than fully satisfied.
