Title:  Service with a Smile

Author: Lily G. Blunt

Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing



Terry visits a men’s designer boutique, and Ash gives him service with a smile…



Service with a Smile is a short story written by Lily G. Blunt which is also a part of the Love, Loss, Laughter & Lust Anthology. The story starts out with one of the two main characters, Terry, standing outside a fashion shop looking at his reflection in the window. As he looks at the clothing displayed, a couple of different shirts catch his attention. Yet that’s not why he was at the shop to begin with. Terry was there to see the salesman by the name of Ash. It would have appeared that Terry had been keeping an eye on Ash over the course of a few weeks to know his schedule and had taken a real liking to him. Once Terry Steps into the Boutique and flips the sign from opened to closed, he proceeds to seduce and get close to Ash until the two of them were in the dressing room together having hot steamy sex.

So… At 16 pages long, I’m not going to get into much more of the story than that simply because I really don’t want to give anything away, but what I will say is that the ending is a surprising twist that had me giggling to myself. Service with a Smile is a cute story that is a very fast read and one that will definitely put a smile on your face. This just shows that when two people love each other, keeping the spice in life, both in and out of the bedroom, is very important. This is a must read. Great Story, Lily.

Terry  caught sight of his reflection in the shop window and smoothed down his wind-blown hair. He glanced up and down,slowly checking over his appearance. A smile grazed his mouth. Pleased he’d chosen a tight-fitting white T-shirt to exhibit his firm torso, his dark eyes shifted to the clothing displayed on the other side of the glass. A pale blue shirt instantly caught his eye, as did a cream-colored shirt with a dusky paisley print. He knew both would suit his tanned complexion.

Terry could certainly do with a new shirt for the party later that evening, but that wasn’t the reason he was standing in front of the designer boutique. A flutter of excitement rippled through his belly and down to his groin, making his cock throb in anticipation. It wasn’t the clothing that had this effect upon him, but the thought of a particular sales assistant inside the shop.

It was late on Saturday afternoon, and the shop would be closing within the next half hour. He didn’t have much time to make his move. Terry hoped he’d timed his entrance just right. Peering beyond the male mannequins poised in the window, he searched out his intended target.

Terry noticed two men about to leave so he moved toward the door.  As it opened, an old-fashioned bell jangled overhead and the two men left the premises. They offered him a genuine smile. One of them winked at Terry, who returned the gesture. Terry watched them head down the street, walking hand in hand, for a few seconds before crossing over the threshold. A smile spread across his handsome face because he now knew only one member of staff remained to man the shop until it closed at half past five. The one guy he wanted the chance to be alone with. The one guy he lusted after. Ash.



About the author:

Lily G. Blunt writes contemporary gay romance and erotica. She loves to explore the relationship between two men and the intensity of their physical and emotional attraction. Angst often features in her stories as she feels this demonstrates the depth of the men’s feelings for each other. Lily is forever writing imaginary scenes and plots in her head, but only a few ever make it to the page—there never seems to be enough hours in the day despite having left the teaching profession to concentrate on her writing!

Lily discovered the wonderful world of m/m romance novels four years ago via fan fiction and went on to write stories in her spare time. With the encouragement of her friends and readers she decided to publish some of her work.

Lily has several self-published stories available on Amazon. She is also published with Torquere Press and Wayward Ink Publishing.

Easily distracted from her writing, Lily makes videos using clips from gay-themed movies and posts gorgeous pictures of men kissing or making out on her tumblr and Facebook pages. Lily is also an avid supporter of GLBTQ rights and advocates equality for all.

Lily lives in central England with her rather bemused husband, two twenty-something children, and a ‘mad as a bag of frogs’ Shetland Sheepdog.
