Cold Nights, Hot Bodies by Lily Harlem

All my life I’ve been the quiet bookworm, the office mouse. It hasn’t bothered me. Immersing myself in erotic novels has kept me wriggling on the edge of my seat at work and firmly entrenched in my own fantasy world at night.

Though one thing is bothering me—my damn virginity. If only I could find a sexy bedroom expert to introduce me to the delights of having a lover. Someone handsome and charming, who can rival the hunky alpha males in my books. I have a very vivid, very well-fed imagination—he’ll have to keep up.

Then, one bitterly cold night, thanks to a devious, conniving, so-called friend, the perfect opportunity to rid myself of this pesky virginity problem comes along. Before I know it, the heroes in my novels have come alive in the person of Shane Galloway, who’s pleasuring me with every trick in the book and wheedling into my heart in the hot

What a great concept! Lily Harlem combines scenes from erotic books with Ashley’s real sex life. As a virgin, Ashley’s been reading erotica and getting ideas—and longings. When she finally loses her virginity, she’s happy to find the chosen man, Shane, is up for a lot of fun—including acting out scenes from her favourite books. They become the characters, and it’s spicy, hot, and interesting to see how the real thing makes Ashley feel over just reading about what she’s doing. A fabulous book where the heroine's feelings are very real. I identified with her a lot.

Plus, if a guy in the office or out on the street did look my way it was always a geek I wouldn’t even take off my raincoat for let alone my knickers.

This wasn’t my bag. (I loved the double meaning here. The things inside “weren’t her bag” either!)

…flicking my hair around as though I were on some cheesy advert…

He stepped closer, or rather lunged, and I hopped back. (LOL)

He’d ditched his jacket and tie and his white shirt shine neon in the disco lights.

He chuckled in a mad, Dr. Evil kind of way.

“I’ve got a ribbed one.”

Well-written and highly entertaining, Cold Nights, Hot Bodies is a fantastic read for an evening on the sofa—or in bed! Who knows, you might find yourself getting inspiration for your own sex life!
