Once again I didn’t read the blurb prior to reading. Having read Ms. Harlem’s Escape to the Country yesterday, I knew because I’d enjoyed her writing style that I didn’t need to know what the story was about. Besides, having not read the blurb for Escape to the Country, and being sent on a wonderfully insane journey, I liked the idea of “going in blind” again. It worked. With no clue as to what I should anticipate, I therefore had no expectations, and allowed myself the pleasure of just reading ...more

Tons of steamy scenes!!! There's also a lot of emotional feels throughout. The story grabs you and pulls you in.

Stars: 4.5

Overall: This story was a wild and sexy read that I couldn't get enough of. The story starts with Ariane on a train running way from a problem. She ends up in a city and sits down with the paper looking for a room to rent. She sees an AD in the paper that says Girl to Share and calls and makes plans to go check it out. Once she gets there, she realizes that the price is going to be way out of her budget, but the man that lives there Liam insists that she at least give it a trial run be

After finding herself in Cardiff with only last nights clothes on her back Ariane does not know what to do with herself.. She cant go home - she has just blown the whistle on her scumbag boss.

Answering the strange ad in the newsagents window 'Wanted, Girl to share' was not going to be the most mind blowing thing to happen to Ariane this week. Liam and Quinn take an instant liking to Ariane and make her feel like the most loved woman on Earth.

This book is not for the narrow minded - they share Ar

What would you think if you read that advertisement? Oh my is all I can say about this one. (waves at face) This is one hot ménage story. Great story line by Lily and man oh man I can’t wait to read Shared Too. This is a must for those who like threesomes!

“I received this copy in return for an honest review”

Who ever said that three's a crowd has never read this. It was a perfect read, drama, hot men and steamy encounters. If you love a threesome read this
I was sceptical at first as to whether I would like it and boy did I! It is a nice-enough (although the build-up could have been a little longer) and the characters were interesting. The sequel is a little better though...

Note: I received this review copy of Shared for free from the author in return for an honest review. The opinions and thoughts I share in this review are my own.

Please also note that this book is an erotic threesome (MFM) romance book and is not (in my opinion) suitable for under 18’s. Adults, please use your discretion to make your own decision.

Ariane has run away from her job, friends, home and entire life with only the clothes on her back and whatever was in her small handbag after finding ou

“…I’m thoroughly looking forward to being the most pampered, sexually satisfied, adored woman to have ever walked the earth.”

I have had Shared by Lily Harlem on my TBR list for months. I read about it in an article showcasing some of the hottest ménage scenes written. I am still not sure which scene they were talking about, as they were all a bit scorching to me!

I met Ms. Harlem a few weeks ago when we were working on another project together, and just fell in love with her. When I

After a disastrous time with her boss leads Ariane to call the police and literally leave town with only the clothes on her back, she wonders what on earth she will do next. An advert in the paper asking for 'girl wanted to share' grabs her attention. Things definitely look up when she gets a tour of the luxury flat from the handsome and very hot Liam.

GREAT READ! I totally enjoyed this book. Ariane answered an ad in the paper for a girl to share but what she doesn't know is that they literally want a girl to share. As soon as she meets Liam and Quinn their attraction is instantaneous. As they get to know each other their chemistry gets stronger and stronger and then wet your panties set your crotch on fire the sex is freakin amazing!! Lol. Everyday they step it up a little more. The only thing I didn't like about this book was it could use mo ...more

If you leave your common sense at the cover/ title page then this is a fun erotic read. A young woman, whose previous lover is now married to someone else, gets sweet-talked by her boss, it all goes horribly sideways and she finds herself in a new town with limited money and nowhere to go. Serendipity intervenes in the form of a local newspaper ad and suddenly her life has got a whole load sexier and interesting.
Strangely this works: the sex is explicit and scorching, the characters have some d
Apr 26, 2016 Kerri rated it liked it  ·  review of another edition

The author can certainly write well but the issue for me was within 1 day both men had her in bed and within a week declaring deep and meaningful feelings to each other. The story would have had more credibility if it hadn't of unfolded so quickly, it needed the sexual tension to be undeniable and palpable. With a bit more work this story could have been deeper and more memorable. This author has talent and I hope she continues to get better.
Aug 16, 2015 Amy rated it really liked it
Not every story is going to be a home run. What I most liked was that this was well edited, and bother the male characters were likable guys. It was a little too insta-lovish for me, but then ménage often is. It really was hot-- mostly sex with a small plot, but it was a nice change of page from the more recent stories I have read. I'm actually thinking about checking out the sequel. We'll have to see...
Aug 03, 2013 Heather rated it it was ok
This book is the reason I should always check Goodreads before reading and see what people have said. 2 stars are generous in my opinion. This was just all over the place and there was no flow. It was just a bunch of random sex with a tiny plot (if it can be called that) thrown in for good measure.
*3- Stars*

OK story, nice enough characters, but something was missing. There was lots of sex, but not enough emotions. It all happened too fast without any foundation. The conflict, if you can call it one, was very predictable. And the ending was sappy sweet. It was OK, but it didn't really work for me.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. It may be this is only a four because I compare it against The Glass Knot, anither book by this author. Unlike TGK, this book seemed more story driven than character driven (my preference). Saying that- it was an excellent story line with some good depth and a few surprising reveals. A good read and a great plot.
A suddenly jobless and homeless woman (by her own choice) answers an ad for a room to rent from two men. Within a week they fall happily in love. Without having any kind of relationship building whatsoever. Most of the story was them having sex, or talking about having sex. Oh, and then her ex-boss suddenly showing up for revenge. Not happy about this at all.
Mar 25, 2013 T K rated it it was ok
I very much enjoy erotica, but this book doesn't even fake a storyline - at least not an even remotely plausible one: it is pretty much pure p-rn. It should come with a seedy (not as in CD!) playlist of background 'p-rn music' that readers can play...
Feb 02, 2014 Malden rated it did not like it
There are erotic books that are a great reads such as 50, In Flight, This Man, Knight & Play, Knights Mistress, Bared to You, etc, etc. then there are books that are in all actuality purely scripts for a porn movie. This is ind of those. I could not even finish this one...
Sep 11, 2011 Brigette rated it it was ok
Before I start reading this book I was so excited about reading it. But I was kind of disappointed with the book, I mean it didn't have a drama to develop I was just expecting something a little more complicated.

Loved it

This story takes place in Wales and is about an artist, web designer and a neurosurgeon who meet and fall in love. A small amount of violence but much of the story is about falling in love.

A Great Read!!!!

Another great read from Lily Harlem, the characters were great, the sex scenes were hot, the storyline was excellent and had me hooked from start to finish. I love menage storylines and this one didn't disappoint. I would highly recommend this book.

If someone told me, "You'll be the most pampered, sexually satisfied, adored woman ever to walk the earth." I'd say "where do I sign up?" This book was fun , sexy, & had a little danger twist - absolutely perfect for a great read.
