The Glass Knot by Lily Harlem: Review

The Glass Knot
by Lily Harlem

What’s a girl to do when the guy she falls for is married to another man?

This is exactly what happened to me. Seeing Josh Kendal stroll out of the Mediterranean Sea wearing tight navy swim trunks and looking like a hot new James Bond was a truly delicious moment. Catching sight of his wedding ring was like a kick in the shin and meeting his gorgeous husband, phew, that was enough to make any girl groan at the cruel joke God was playing on her.

But all was not as it seemed, and when Josh needed a woman to sort out a ‘delicate predicament’ I was the one for the job – heck, what did I have to lose? Certainly not as much as him, literally.

Trouble is, emotions always get tangled, loyalties can’t help but be divided and with a night of memories so hot they'd have the devil sweating, there was only one thing for it—it was time to get honest, fight for what I wanted despite society’s constraints and open my heart to the people it needed most.

Reader advisory - The Glass Knot is an erotic romance featuring M/M and M/F love and every combination of two guys and a girl you can think of!
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Happily married to Nick for 10 years, Josh knows that he's found his forever love; but Nick is older, more experienced, and Josh can't help but wonder what it would be like to make love to a woman. They've even talked about it, and Nick has made it clear that he's open to Josh exploring that side of his sexuality. The problem is that Josh isn't interested in sleeping with just any woman; it would need to be someone he felt a connection to... someone special.

Laura has given up on men. After experiencing nothing but loser boyfriends who have given her nothing but heartache, she's spent the last year focusing on her photography business. She'd like to believe that her trusty vibrator is all that she needs to satisfy her, but when Josh Kendal walks out of the water and into her camera's viewfinder, she can't help but dream of what it would be like to spend the night in his sexy embrace.

Josh is equally fascinated by the beautiful woman he caught eyeing him that day, and when their attraction leads to a night of passion, it's more perfect than he ever imagined it could be.

Nick, Josh and Laura quickly learn that you should be careful what you wish for, because that one night changed everything...

THE GLASS KNOT is a passionately written and captivating story that balances explosive sensuality and touching emotions into an entertaining romance that felt like a grown up version of the fairytales of my childhood. I would recommend this well paced and delightful book to readers who are looking to experience a unique story with emotional characters and unexpected plot lines.

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!
