Taboo For You

Taboo For You - Anyta Sunday, Teresa Crawford, Lynda Lamb, HJS Editing, Caroline Wimmer I've found a few good books through the m/m romance group nominations--and this one was terrific! I have a weak spot for GFY romances, so I'm always happy to find a new one that is well-written and entertaining.

Taboo For You was so much fun to read. It's a friends-to-lovers story about two neighbors--Luke, a gay man, and Sam, a straight one with a teen son. I loved the plot trope, that Sam had a list of things he wanted to do before he hit 30 (he had a child very young, so he feels he missed out on his youth). Luke has been secretly in love with Sam for awhile. He finds the list and is determined to make sure Sam gets to do all the things he's missed. One of the items is to have taboo sex. Of course, this ends up being sex between Luke and Sam, which Sam initially thinks is just a one off experiment in being 'wild and crazy'. But of course, Luke has a lot more invested in it and gets hurt. Sam comes to realize how much Luke means to him.

I just adored the characters and the slow development of the sexual scenario and how the author described Sam's internal thought process about having sex with a man (at all) and then realizing how much he has always loved Luke and how Luke has always been there for him. 5 stars for the developement of both the gfy and friends-to-lovers threads.

It's a very sweet and sexy little story I'll probably reread. Going on my favorites list!
