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

First review
Josh, young, gorgeous and sweet and Nick, dark, domineering and somewhat a man of mystery, are celebrating their 10th anniversary at a posh resort in Marbella……  photo download_zpsdc4f7f98.jpg
“Here’s to us.” Nick clinked his glass against mine and gave a seductive smile, one that promised a night of sex hotter than the Costa del Sol’s midday sun. “To us,” I said, tapping the rim of my champagne flute against his, “and surviving agains

I was really intrigued by the premise of this story,I was so intrigued that I finished it in one sitting.Since I do most of my reading at night,needless to say,no sleep for me that night.

This book is true form of ménage . Where no one is left out there all equals. Its a relationship process , a slow process we get to see how their relationship developes into something more. In other books that I have read it lacks the emotional part and the slow- process of a developed relationship. In other books its smut and erotic only .

Josh & Nick Kendal are celebrating their 10 yr anniversary. Josh has only ever been with Nick, but he's been wondering what it would be like to be with a woman. He & Nick have an understanding that if he ever finds a woman he connects with, he can have one encounter with her. Josh just happens to find that woman, Laura.

Laura is on a working vacation when she sees Josh coming out of the ocean in what she refers to as a "Daniel Craig" moment. Only hotter. She's very disappointed when she s

I liked the characters. When I read a story, I always try to see if I can relate with their personalities and their choices. And of course, if the decision taken in the story is one I would have done, the character becomes more lovable to me.

The story was credible and sometimes it was not.


So this story was credible: two guys meet a girl and one of them has a one night fling. No big deal so far. But when the two

HOLY COW! The Glass Knot is one HOT HOT HOT read! Yes, it deserves three HOTS!

Laura is on vacation when she meets this REALLY hot guy, and then she meets his equally hot husband. Damn! Gotta hate it when that happens.

Josh has never been with a woman. He’s thought about it, but never done it. His husband, Nick, was married to a woman before he married Josh. So, Nick, loving Josh as much as he does, gives him a pass for the night. Josh and Laura spend an amazing night together.

“Do you still think of Her?” he asked suddenly. His dark gaze captured mine, and his expression fell serious.

“Her?” I knew full well who he was talking about. Her, She, was fictitious, and stemmed from a drunken conversation we’d had several years ago.

“I’m sorry, Josh.” He covered my hand with his. “I shouldn’t have brought it up.”

“No, it’s fine.”

He rubbed his thumb over my knuckles and stared, unblinking at his caressing movements. “Seriously, forget it.”

I sucked in a deep breath. I couldn

This was a great book by Lily Harlem!
This book is about two men(Nick and Josh)who went Marbella for their 10th anniversary.
Nick had been married before Josh and didn't realize he was gay until he met Josh and ended his marriage. Josh had never been with another person only Nick. Nick asked Josh if he ever thought about being with a woman. "But yes, I do sometimes still think of being with a woman."
Josh feels guilty about his ad

I'm always very wary and skeptical of books written in first person. Unfortunately writing in first person makes it much too easy for authors to write weak characters who do a lot of navel gazing. Thankfully me and Ms Harlem have a pretty good track-record, so I wasn't too worried diving into one of her books.

The book I was reading felt like it was going nowhere fast, so I needed something completely different to dive into. Lily Harlem seemed like a safe bet, so I scrolled through my Kindle and
I liked this story, but the beginning was a little hard for me to get pulled into. It felt a little forced and unbelievable, and certain things seemed to happen too quickly for my comfort, especially in the fact that there seemed an insensitivity to one of the MCs.

There were some minor edits that bugged me here and there, also, but after the first 2/3s of the story, I finally was pulled in. I enjoyed the scenes with all 3 parties more so than with just two, but all the sex scenes were written p

Married guy, Nick, mets the love of his life, Josh - divorces wife and marries Josh.

10 years later - Josh is curious - he wants to know what it is like with a woman and Nick agrees he should try it - once.

Whilst on holiday in Marbella Laura sees the most perfect specimen of malehood - Josh and he notices her too.

Their one night together leaves a lasting impression on both and leads to an unusual relationship.

Fantastic chemistry between all 3 characters - plenty of sizzling sex scenes too - mm, m

I read this book after reading the silk tie and I thought the book was fantastic. It was an edge of the seat kind of read with you not knowing what was going to happen the three main characters Josh, Nick & Laura. Lily (the author) keeps you waiting to see what happens and I ,or one,was not disappointed in the story. If you have read The Silk Tie then you will not want to miss this book. Excellent read!!

I read this on holiday at the beach which was the perfect place. Lily is a master of drawing you in to a lovely gentle romance then - pow - turns up the heat. She makes the transition from first innocent meeting to full blown sexual experience so natural and believable. Really enjoyed this book.

Ms. Harlem never disappoints me. Another hot & steamy read.
Note: I received this review copy of The Silk Tie 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 (containing MMF/MFM/MM/MF) romance book and is not (in my opinion) suitable for under 18’s. Adults, please use your discretion to make your own decision.

The Glass Knot is the third book I have read by the British author Lily Harlem and I am more in love with her work after read
I really love this author. This is the second book I have read by her and in both books, I have noticed that she has a way of writing about settings in Europe without using a lot of British slang that can make books confusing for the reader. I love books set in the UK, but when I have to look up a word on every page (i.e., The Silver Chain) it's just not a lot of fun to read and interrupts my reading flow. This one has great settings, from the coast in Marabella to the dregs of London to the Eng ...more

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.

I could not put this book down. First book from this author. It was a beautifully written story about Nick, Josh, & Laura. A little different take on the ménage storyline since Nick had been married to a woman previously before marrying Josh. Josh had only been with Nick but was attracted to females while never acting on those feelings. Laura only had a few male lovers & was immediately attracted to Josh. Josh & Nick were on their 10th wedding anniversary holiday at the beginning of ...more

Now I will start of by saying that this was definitely a sexy read, as you and I know all of Lily's books tend to be. She is always so spot on with the chemistry between her characters, but I found that although I liked this book, I regretfully didn't love it as much as I had anticipated. I think that is mostly because so much was focused on the two relationships between Josh and Laura or Nick and Josh, that I didn't couldn't feel the connection at all between Nick and Laura and it felt forced. ...more

One of the most erotic, sexy, hot books I have ever read with a great story line and so very well written.
This is the story of Nick and Josh who are in a relationship and have been for 10 years. Where as Nick was once married, Josh has only ever been with Nick, and has never experienced a relationship with a woman. Although their relationship is solid and they are very much in love, Josh has a secret desire to "be" with a woman for just the one night, to feel and experience what he has never had

Let's face it, when you read a Lily Harlem book, you just know you're in for some sexy times and those sexy times are good. That said, what keeps me going back to Lily's book is not how hot they are but the fact that she writes a great story and she creates wonderful characters. The Glass Knot is no different. I was slightly apprehensive getting into this book because it was slightly outside of my comfort zone, however, once I got over my initial shock (alright, I admit, I can be a bit of a prud ...more

I found the plot of this m/m/f story extremely unbelievable; which is why I gave it a 3.5 stars. However, the chemistry and the dynamic of the three-way relationship was so well written, I'm giving that part 4 stars. And the sex....definitely worthy of 5 stars (IMO)! I love how the author the jealousy issue. She gave a very realistic view of how it could be in this type of relationship and how Nick had to come to terms with the new addition of Laura into his marriage with Josh. I comp

Another excellent book by Lily Harlem. The characters felt very real to me. I wanted to see that they reached for their HEA. Some of the scenes were very intense for me especially the one where Nick and Josh are in the kitchen after Josh was with Laura. I loved that Laura could not pull herself away from that scene just as much as I couldn't stop reading it. Lily did a wonderful job with the M/M, M/F and M/M/F scenes. She got to the emotional heart of their story. Her books are always a pleasure ...more

What is a normal relationship? Is there such a thing? If you love someone would you be willing to do anything to ensure their happiness? This book challenges your perception of these questions and makes you wonder at the possibilities of opening your mind and your heart. The sex is off the charts hot and features M/M, M/F and M/M/F action that physically heats the air around the pages. Another triumph from the fabulous Lily.
