I love suspense, mysteries and legal thrillers as much as I love romance. I also love female kickass books. The only thing I love more than those are erotic/romantic thrillers and baby….what a surprise to find that this book was that! I admit I was surprised but excited that Joelle’s story was continuing from The Forbidden. I am not a fan of the situation she walked into. But I now realize I must have picked up on a clue or two. See what I did there? Lol. Fantastic story, steamy scenes, cautionary lessons put down and observed and a satisfying ending. Now all that said…. I need some characters to SPEAK up to Brooklyn and not let this be only book this catalog of great novels and novellas.
Listen...no spoilers but Brookelyn really showed her writing ability with this one. Her style of writing is always superb but this is not how I saw this going. I am pleasantly surprised. At least 3 times I said 'wtf' out loud. Brookelyn definitely can delve in the suspense world if she wants...this book was AWESOME!
I first fell in love with the thoughts of Jordan and Joelle exploring her fantasies in Tasteful Taboo from Forbidden. They had mad, passionate sex at Chateau Luxure that captivated them leaving them both wanting more. This book went way beyond my wildest expectations and had me in my feelings during the suspenseful ride. This was not the love story that I was expecting like Amir and Melodee in Girl Code and Mr. & Mrs. Jones. This was not like the happy ending that Romello and Rayelle in They Call Me Mello. It was captivating and suspenseful on the level of Love, Hate, and Revenge times ten. The question that Joelle should have asked herself, of who Jordan Gabriel really is, is about to be answered in a prolific way. These two couples lives are about to change in a major way and will never be the same. Silly me had put you in a box that this was going to be another sweet, sensual love story with a happy ending for Jordan and Joelle married with two kids😔😔 THIS MASTERPIECE WAS SO OUTSIDE OF THE BOX THAT IT WAS REFRESHING LIKE A COLD GLASS OF LEMONADE ON A HOT, DRY SUMMER DAY. I'm glad that Lita's plan worked out for her and Joelle. I always knew Cameron was still cheating because he wasn't attentive and he was a selfish lover. What man wouldn't want to shower his wife with multiple orgasms from oral sex?? Even though Jordan was crazy, crazy...I took pleasure in the madness he inflicted upon Cameron because Joelle went to major extents to please him which was never enough. I wanted to see his business go under but it was self explanatory that it's the next step with the bad reviews, competition, loosing contracts, and workers leaving while Joelle about to live her best life with Jordan's millions from his stash house. I want to feel sorry for Jordan because he was such a great lover to Joelle but I can't because of the unjust way he made her loose her job. He was the typical rich brat when he didn't get his way. I was floored when he put out there that he had been pretty much stalking her for a while waiting for the right time to implant himself in her life. I want to read more about Lita because she deserves a HEA after being married to Jordan.
I loved the book it was such an suspenseful read but yet filled with a lot of spice that I loved. When I first embarked on Joelle’s I had no idea that it would unravel into this masterpiece. They say the grass is never greener on the other side and definitely be careful what you pray for because Jordan was the devil incarnate. It was so sad to see all Joelle friends idolize her marriage and just didn’t know the hell and the sacrifices she suffered through silently. This book definitely touched on some subjects of marriage that many don’t explore and I love it. Definitely can’t wait for what’s next Brookelyn never disappoints.
This was different from the usual Brookelyn Mosley stories but I enjoyed it. Jordan and Joelle were first introduced in Chateau Lux and I was eager to read more about them. This story definitely didn’t disappoint. I thoroughly enjoyed this suspenseful journey that showed that everything isn’t always as it appears. This is hands down one of my favorite one of Brookelyn’s stories and I can’t wait to read what she releases next!
There are no words to explain how on point Brooklyn’s word game is. You had me @ “hydration” ... so enough said. READ THE BOOK ... complete page turner. I read the whole thing in 24 hours cause I couldn’t put it down!
I enjoyed this story from the anthology. I'm glad to see the author continued it but I wasn't ready for everything to unfold. It was well written and these characters really became alive. The characters were well developed. I will definitely read more from this author. Can't wait!

I really enjoyed this book could never just guess where it was going. Had me fooled a couple of times. Truly you can’t tell what a person will be like. Everyone has on filters and only after they are removed will you learn the true person.
