**REVIEW** ~ One Night in Budapest, by Lucy Felthouse

Erotic Romance

Adult/18+ Read

One Night in Budapest

Book Blurb

Hermione’s in Budapest on a romantic weekend break. Or at least it should have been romantic—an unexpected break-up means she’s visiting the Hungarian capital alone. Determined to make the most of it, she goes on a night-time river cruise, the perfect opportunity to see some of the city’s beautiful sights after dark.

On the boat, cute Budapest native, Emil, serves her cocktails. They chat a little on the journey, engage in some banter, and when Emil asks Hermione out for dinner, she’s seriously tempted. But she’s a long way from home, by herself—is dinner with a complete stranger a good idea? Hermione decides to take a chance, and what follows is an unforgettable night which will transform her life forever.

My Review ~ 5 smexy stars!

Fun filled erotic romance

One Night in Budapest is part of Tirgearr Publishing’s passionate and  smexy  City Nights series. This novella, penned by Lucy Felthouse, is delightful and contains an unexpected romance, a night full of fun, adventure and hot sex (this is an erotic romance after all)!

Hermoine and Emil are both characters that I fell in love with very easily and their youthful exuberance and love of live make for a diverting read. Emil is both sexy and sweet and a perfect match for the lively Hermoine who is determined to make the most of her short break. There is clearly a great deal of attraction between them from the off and it was a matter of when and not if they would succumb to their desires. Time is short however, as Hermoine is due to return home soon. Will they have a future, or is it just a case of a short term fling?

Emil takes Hermoine and the reader on a whirlwind tour of this romantic city and although I have never visited Budapest, the author’s descriptions transported me right there as I experienced what the city (and Emil) has to offer.  The love-making scenes between the couple are hot and their romance is believable and full of hope and new beginnings.

I have never visited Budapest but if I do I will be on the look out for the twin brother of Emil, the sexy bartender and his repertoire of aptly named cocktails which play a humorous and important part in the couple’s burgeoning relationship!

All in all, a sweet, sexy and uplifting read!

Unexpected Humour by Lucy Felthouse (@cw1985) #newrelease #erotica #romance #newadult #NA #tirgearr #blogtour

I occasionally get comments from readers about the humour in my books. It’s not in all of my books, and to be honest, except for the most recent stuff I’ve worked on, I don’t think I could say offhand which ones do contain funnies. Reason being… I don’t know I’m doing it. Much of the time, I don’t even know I’ve done it. It’s weeks or months down the line, when I’m working with an editor on my books, and I’ve had some level of remove from the story, that I realise there’s humour in there. It makes me laugh, so it obviously stems from my sense of humour—which admittedly, is pretty bonkers. But I definitely don’t sit there writing and thinking to myself “I’ll just add that in there because it’s funny” or “I must add something amusing to this chapter.” Whatever it is, it just seems to happen naturally.

This was definitely the case with One Night in Budapest. While it’s not got as many humorous parts as in some of my other books, there’s a particular section that made me grin as I wrote it, and laugh out loud as I edited it. Again, it wasn’t something I deliberately wrote to be amusing, more a situation that presented itself, and I saw it mainly as an opportunity to torment my characters a little. I hope it makes you smile, too. I’ve posted a little teaser of it below—though it’s not the whole section, as I don’t want to give too much away 😉

Happy Reading,

Lucy x

Excerpt

Emil made a note on his pad. “Very good. Would you like to choose your second drink now, or later?”

“Later, I think. Thank you.” That would, at least, give her time to peruse the options at a more leisurely pace so she could find something else she fancied that didn’t have a name with sexual connotations.

She couldn’t help wondering whether she would be bothered about that had Emil not been so attractive. Would she have been able to ask a woman, or a man she didn’t find attractive, for a Screaming Orgasm or a Quick Fuck without bursting into laughter or dying of embarrassment? As she watched Emil walk away, his backside tight and luscious in his uniform trousers, she figured she wouldn’t be able to find out the answer to that question any time soon. He’d clearly assigned himself to her table, probably to ensure she got her bargain drinks. Christ, if they got any cheaper, they’d be paying her to drink them.

Therefore, the way she saw it, she had three options: have another Woo Woo, find something else that didn’t have a smutty name, or suck it up and order whatever the hell she wanted, smutty name or not.

Shaking her head at her own silliness, she turned back to admiring the city as it floated by the windows. At least she had a little while to make up her mind—her first stupidly named drink had yet to come.
