really liked it

I think most girls love a guy in uniform so this book is just for you.
A super sexy set of 3 hot and steamy short stories about life and sex of a military wife.

Military Wife
Tess’ salacious fantasies about her husband, Aidan, see her through the long periods of time when she doesn’t see him—when he’s away on tour with the Army. The rest of the time, she has to deal with day to day life alone. One day, a dull chore is interrupted by the unexpected arrival of her husband, and things quickly hot up in their kitchen, and beyond.

A great way to be greeted struggling with the shopping, a handsome helper arrives to help. I loved the sexual tension Lucy has managed to find within the pages of this short story. You can feel they haven't seen each other for months and I love her descriptive prose on the ruggedness of his uniform and use of his army tags.
I really cant say much more without giving the whole story away, just to say its a hot steamy build up and final explosion of ecstasy between 2 people that love each other and I loved how Lucy has manage to get such a brilliant connection between the two of them.

The Passing Out passion
When Christina attends her brother’s passing out parade with her parents, she’s full of pride at his achievement. What she’s not expecting, though, is to bump into old flame Phil Ashdown. They didn’t part on good terms and the atmosphere between them is awkward. But when they’re forced into conversation, it turns out that all those years ago, there was a misunderstanding. One that can very easily be put right.

I really liked the unique meeting place and their hot sexual connection, which has turned from love to hate or was it love in the first place. A lovely sensitive story with a passionate ending between 2 people that have army life in common.

Double Vision
Becky’s a military wife with a uniform fetish. She loves nothing more than having fun in the bedroom with her squaddie husband, where they share and act out many of their fantasies. However, there’s one fantasy that she’s never divulged, as it breaks their rule about bring other people into their sex life. One day, though, Becky decides to bite the bullet and tell Paul everything. She never expects him to make her fantasy come true. But then, Paul’s a very resourceful man.

This is a storyline with such a clever solution to a sexual fantasy many of us have, with no one getting hurt embarrassed or feeling awkward. I cant say much or again I will give this story away.

I loved all 3 stories which are all completely different to what I was expecting, I actually wondered how Lucy could make 3 army wife stories so different and she certainly did that. But what combines all 3 stories together is the brilliant character connections and sexual tension running through each story; especially for me the first one Military Wives which is my favourite.
All 3 stories are quite vanilla being simply m/f but that doesn't make them any less sexy, and each story ends with great sex between 2 people that love each other dearly. I have to say just the image on the front of the book was enough for me to want to read this book, great choice of image Lucy.
I personally love my erotica with BDSM and a little darker but I still found I couldn't put the book down till the last page.
This has to be the perfect book for an army wife for Valentines day or anyone who loves their men in uniform. I read all 3 stories in a few hours so its a nice quick read when you haven't much time.
Another brilliant series of shorts from the Lucy Felthouse library.
