When Kayleigh takes a gap year before starting University, she decides she’s going to stay away from guys and just concentrate on having fun and experiencing life. That means going through a lot of batteries, but she’s happy and satisfied.

That is, until she gets to Spain on her travels and meets her new co-worker, Luciano. The scorching hot Spaniard soon has Kayleigh’s knickers in a twist— literally—and the time they spend together seriously raises the bar for her sex life. How will any other man ever compare?

Steamy Excerpt
My first shift at the restaurant passes in a blur of flirtatious glances. My pussy swells and my clit throbs, desperate for attention. It’s all I can do to resist disappearing into the bathroom for a sneaky wank. Even better, I’d like to drag Luciano in there with me and ride him until his teeth rattle. Instead, I console myself with the fact that once I get back to my apartment, I can do whatever the hell I like. And I know for a fact it’s going to involve an orgasm.

I take a taxi back to my apartment rather than walking the dark, unfamiliar streets alone. It also means I can get there quicker and relieve the tension that the sexy Spaniard has caused. I pay the driver as fast as possible then rush inside and slam the door behind me. I heave a sigh of relief as I lock myself in.

Undressing, I drop my clothes by the washing machine and head to the bathroom, desperate to get clean. It’s not work that’s made me feel dirty, though. The flirting with Luciano have left me seriously wet. The panties I’ve just discarded in front of the washing machine are sodden.

Stepping under the shower, I groan with pleasure as the hot water caresses my fevered skin. I stand there for a few seconds, letting the heat and the water relax me. My tension slips away and runs down the plughole. I grab the shampoo and give my hair a wash, digging my fingers into my scalp and massaging it. Now I’m calmer. But by the time I’ve rinsed the suds, he’s popped into my head again. Damn him.


This book sizzles! Wow! Kayleigh was one hot woman! Obviously, abstinence was bad for her (lol!). Why would she even go on a "man-fast"? That's just asking for trouble ;)
"He's so hot he should come with a health warning."

The author did such a great job with Kayleigh's point of view that even I was attracted to Luciano. I'm not too fond of that name, but the man bearing it was so hot! As Kayleigh put it, he was a "brown-haired, brown-eyed, brown-skinned sex god." Well, who could resist that??

"Kayleigh, are you...okay?...I mean, you are okay, with me? You still like me?"

Crazy man. "Of course I still like you, Luciano. What we did earlier was incredible."

"I am glad. It was incredible for me also. Would you like to do it again?


He laughs. "No, not here. What is the phrase you English use...your place or mine?"

I love the scene in the staff room. Public locations are usually hotter because of the danger of getting caught. It was even hotter when they got to Kayleigh's apartment. I like men who growls...

It was kind of sad that Luciano was just a fling... I'm curious if he gets in a lot of flings like that. Overall, I just LOVE Lucy Felthouse's books. They're well written and super hot!
