For all you Elisabeth Naughton fans out there, or anyone that enjoys mystery, suspense, and seriously hot romance Forbidden just released a few days ago. The really great news is that Deceived, the second installment is set to release very shortly after Forbidden. Take a look at my review.
Forbidden Fruit is always so enticing…
Get ready for something entirely new from this author. I have never really been a big fan of a romantic read that features dominance and submission as a featuring role in the bedroom. The whole premise of one partner needing to dominate the other is not my typical read and although I have read several other authors that write in that genre I was totally surprised to find that Ms. Naughton was indeed taking me down that dark and twisted road in Forbidden. Let me tell you, Luciano Salvatici should definitely be on the forbidden list, he absolutely should not be considered boyfriend material, or should he? That being said, as always I’m quick to get caught up in the tale that is being spun by this exceptional author, she has a way of drawing me in even when I’m thinking what the heck is going on here? And, is she really writing what I think she’s writing about?
But I digress, let me give you a quick breakdown, the main character Natalie James is very quickly caught up in this dark and twisted tale when she arrives in New York bound and determined to find the person responsible for the murder of her best friend. Before she knows what is happening she is quickly drawn in by the handsome, yet exceptionally dangerous Italian Luc Salvatici and their affair is nothing short of hot and very naughty as Luc strives to dominate her in every way possible in and out of the bedroom. I found the sex scenes to be incredibly riveting, steamy, and very tastefully written even if I’m not one to get into the whole dominance and submission thing. All I can say is, wow! I don’t think that reading this book in a public place is a good idea, but then again I’ve gotten distracted. Back to Luc, on the surface, Luc is all business as the CEO of Covet in the fashion industry, he is domineering, and at times nothing short of a total dick but all may not be what it seems when family secrets come to light. I will warn the reader here that this series is definitely geared toward adults and ends on what I think of as a huge cliffhanger, but fans of the series shouldn’t have to wait very long to get their hands on Deceived Book 2 of House of Sin. I for one cannot wait to see what happens next in Natalie and Luc’s story.
Last but not least, I received an ARC of Forbidden for an honest review, which in no way influenced my review. Thank you, Elisabeth Naughton, for once again engaging me in a truly amazing tale, and I have no idea as to how this story will play out.
