Raising the Bar

Raising the Bar


M/F Contemporary Erotica


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?

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.

“…if, like me, you enjoy escaping the monotony of the office for fifteen minutes and finding a quiet corner with your Kindle for some down and dirty reading, then Raising the Bar is a book for you. Add in luscious Luciano, and what’s not to enjoy?” 4 out of 5, Long and Short Reviews


“Raising the Bar is part of Decadent Publishing’s Edge Erotica Series. I find the series pushes the boundaries that I will read, however this one just had my mouth on the floor, it is (so far) my favorite. With smoking hot scenes, you can’t help but step into Kayleigh’s shoes, and in the most delectable of ways. It is very much about two people who can’t get enough of each other. It is a short one, as all Edge Erotica are, but this one has the most perfect of endings. I give Raising the Bar a solid 5 stars out of 5.” The eBook Reviewers


“Raising The Bar is a great short story. I love these Novellas that grip you right from the beginning and keep you right to the end and wanting more after you are done. Every time I read one of these Novellas I want more and more and RTB had me screaming for more. Lord I would love a fine Spaniard in my bed giving me so much more than I have ever experienced!” 5 out of 5, A Diary of a Book Addict
