Honeymoon At The Hilton
Stephen B. Cooper
Before I get started on my review, I have to mention the obligatory Mature Content Warning on this one.
I was hesitant when Stephen approached me about reviewing his book, “Honeymoon at the Hilton”. I thought to myself, “What in the world is erotic espionage?” I worried there would be no story under the steamy and detailed sex scenes.
My worries were put to rest early on as Stephen delivers a story outside of the erotic aspects of the book. Personally, I felt the story stood just fine without all of the sex scenes. I was reminded of the Brad Pitt/Angelina Jolie movie, Mr. and Mrs. Smith, in some ways.
Mark and Pyah Fischer are private security agents trying to enjoy their honeymoon when everything goes wrong. An attempt on their lives sends them on a chase where they don’t know where the next attack will come from.
Soon they are on a globe trotting mission to track down their attempted assassin and retrieve a special briefcase. Along the way they manage to get into an assortment of lewd and lascivious adventures.
Underneath this, in my opinion unnecessary and sometimes overdone filler, is a decent story that will keep you turning the page. The non sexual action scenes are well done with dialogue that will make you chuckle at least once. I did find the British slang/phrasing coming from an American “Yankee” a little off putting at times.
Overall, I enjoyed the book despite it being a departure from my usual genres. If you like a chunk of erotica mixed with action, humor, and a bit of sass, grab “Honeymoon at the Hilton ” today.
