BLOG TOUR: Raising the Bar by Lucy Felthouse

Thanks to Full Moon Bites Promotions for hosting this blog tour. Here's my review of Lucy Felthouse's Raising the Bar. Be sure to follow the rest of the tour!



Kayleigh takes a gap year before starting University, and decides to swear off men while traveling. Upon reaching Spain and her new coworker, Luciano, she dumps that plan. He shows her a good time and raises the bar on her sex life.

Title:  Raising the Bar
Series:  The Edge
Book #: N/A
Author:  Lucy Felthouse
Approximate Book Length:  19 Pages
Recommended Reader Age:  18+
Sexual Content:  Explicit


As with many of the stories from Decadent Publishing’s “The Edge” series, this story is really a tid bit story. It starts off a little abruptly, hardly able to get your bearings. Once you do though it’s a hot ride. There aren’t a whole lot of details about the settings, or even a great sense of the characters, but it’s meant to be a short erotic read, and it succeeds there.

That being said, I’m a fan of erotic romance, and this was lacking my HEA that I crave. Plus, I read a lot of things, but this was a little on the raunchy side for my taste, despite being sexy and hot. I will say that this was the first book I’ve read that had squirting in it, which is actually kind of interesting.

In Conclusion:

If you’re looking for a deep, thought provoking romance, this is not for you. If you’re looking for a quick and dirty erotic read, look no further!
