Let's Get Physical... in Cross Trainer Number Four. Reading for Charity

Lily Harlem gives us a HAWT work-out in Cross Trainer Number Four, her story in the charity anthology COMING TOGETHER, With Curves. (in print and ebook)

Following Tilly Hunter's sexy little tied-up story in the Coming Together; With Curves anthology that benefits PARKINSON'S UK, Ms. Harlem makes us sweat with her quirky and fun number. A man working out has eyes for his cross trainer...well, not quite. This is not just a HAWT story, it's got a neat twist and I adored the different approach. Ms. Harlem attacks this story with panache and heat that's so fresh and sassy, it's hard to not think you're right in the, erm, character's head. I won't say anymore. Don't want to give away any spoilers. Besides, I need to go somewhere to chill-out now...that was some work-out!

My favorite snippet from Cross Trainer Number Four

This mini excerpt is PG 13 rated. Please be aware that the anthology is rated R/adult and is not suitable for minors due to 
sexual content and language.

"I'm sorry, " she says with a smile. "What did you say?"
Oh, She's a minx. I know she heard what he said, she replied the first time he spoke. She's enjoying the moment. The special exchange between man and woman when they communicate verbally for the first time. Plenty has been said in lusty admiring glances over the last few months, but now, finally, they speak.
If I wasn't on such tenterhooks I'd sigh at the sweetness of it.
"I'm James by the way." He wipes his fingertips over his brow, messing up that mop of hair all the more.
"Carmel." She keeps on working out.
"So do you fancy it?"
"What?" She raises her eyebrows. I can't deny it. I like her style; cool, calm, sexy, suggestive, she's got it all.

Lily Harlem is a  multi-published, award-winning author of contemporary erotic romance.
She lives in the UK and writes for several publishing houses including Ellora’s Cave, Total-E-Bound, Mischief at HarperCollins, Sweetmeats Press and Xcite. She also has works in numerous UK and US anthologies, some of which all proceeds are donated to charity.

The third story in this anthology is mine, BELLA BUXOM, Just Squeeze Me, so I'll skip right along to the next story for tomorrow's review and snippet for COMING  TOGETHER; With Curves. Captivated by Elizabeth Lapthorne
