4.0 out of 5 starsCan you say TABOO?
Reviewed in the United States on April 18, 2017
I feel like I should be outraged or disturbed or troubled by this book...but, um, well, yeah, I'm not. It's a story, it's forbidden fiction, and it's steamy as hell. Yes, it's VERY taboo, but Miss Kitt's scene setting is so deliciously hot I found myself forgetting about the whole sibling thing and just losing myself in how damn erotic it was. I mean the sex scenes are dirty and ca-razy (hello cucumbers and candles) 😳 I did however have a few issues. Dawn and her constant "baby brother" and "oh Davey" talk was a little cringe-y to me. Also, there wasn't much to the story itself, just a whole lotta sex. They didn't really even seem like siblings, maybe that's why it didn't bother me that much. The story ended pretty abruptly and pretty weird. Like really, everyone's just moving out and moving in? What about their parents? What in the hell happened? And can I just say Julie's got major issues! Ha, I guess they ALL do right?!?! With that said, if you go into this book knowing it's super taboo, knowing the whole book is basically filled with super taboo sex, and not much else, then you'll enjoy it. One of those quick, guilty pleasure reads.

I felt guilty enjoying this book. Incest is one of those subject that's often handled like a grenade in fiction. But Selena Kitt handles the subject matter with confidence. She can obviously write a sex scene, though at times, watching Davey and Dawn going at it , made me feel squeamish. And the sad thing about it is, I was hoping they would get together, though that was impossible. It was good. A little disturbing, but fun...

This is pure erotic, taboo romance. While some may find it quite sick (as it involved “step-brother” and sister romance) it is written as a fantasy for those who enjoy something a bit different. This type of romance doesn’t bother me as I have an open mind and realize this is a work of forbidden fiction. If you are easily offended and are looking for a loving romance, then look somewhere else because you won’t get it with this one! Now, while I appreciate this book (it is hot and dirty- I mean the bedroom scenes are insane) I really don’t like how it ended. I wish we as readers got a bit more closure. If this book had a bit more to it (it wasn’t very long anyway) it would have been a 5 star read. However, because it ended so abruptly I have to give it 4 stars.
Ok so let's start with the fact that these 2 are brother and sister. At first it is a bit strange but the way this author wrote the story, you almost forget after the first chapter and it is so very erotic!!! Can't imagine it ever happening with my brother ( gross) but I could imagine if he was as hot as this guy and his sister was just as hot it could very well happen. The story is well written although it is British so some of the words I didn't know. It was a good book and I seriously was not grossed out at all.
5.0 out of 5 starsA Beautiful and Tragic Love Story
Reviewed in the United States on July 27, 2016
I've read my share of erotica, and this is one story I'm going to remember for a long time. I have also given my share of 5-star reviews but never so enthusiastically as in this case. If the reader can rid himself/herself of the mental block perpetrated by the taboo nature of David and Dawn's romance, I think (s)he will find it to be a beautiful love story between two people who have loved each other for most of their lives. In David's case, it has been his entire life - first as a brother, then as a lover. There wasn't a great deal of space devoted to the story of their childhoods, but it was enough for me to ascertain that there was a special, loving connection there that helped both protagonists survive their parents' less-than-ideal marriage when they were kids. In the segment about the shoplifting, for instance, Dawn helped to fine tune her little brother's moral compass by scolding him about it. David didn't want to disappoint his big sister, so he did the right thing and returned the item.
The story begins with both David and Dawn as adults, 18 and 25, respectively. Very young, yes, but old enough for the age of consent. Some may argue that Dawn is a sexual predator on David's relative inexperience, but it's clear from his little collection in the shed that he's been fantasizing about his sister for a long time. I think Dawn simply drew out what was there in the first place. As a beautiful girl who's had to put up with jerks as boyfriends, Dawn is looking for a safe harbor, and she finds it in David, who, while not a perfect person, is basically a genuine, stand-up guy with a sense of loving compassion that envelops his sister like a warm winter coat.
The sex scenes are extremely graphic and torrid. Those with a thirst for pure pornography will not walk away unsatisfied. However, my greatest reward in reading this marvelous work was emotional. Such a coupling as Dawn's and David's carries with it very obvious dangers and pitfalls, no matter how sublime their love may be. Certainly in David's case, it utterly beggared his sense of what's truly right and wrong. In the end, I think he accepted that he and Dawn could never be a couple, but she would always be his soulmate; and he, hers. It was both beautiful and heartbreaking, as a truly memorable love story should be.
Some reviewers didn't like the ending, but I don't think it could have been done any better. There is a sense of finality, but the story doesn't close without a spark of hope, as represented in the contents of David's pocket after he throws out all his dirty magazines. I like to think of their future as being together on some Pacific island as husband and wife, perhaps running a diving shop but mostly enjoying a soul connection that few people ever find. It's like love "squared" - a strong sibling devotion amplified by a deep romantic love. David will always want his "Dawnie," and she will always want her "Davey." They are not unlike Romeo and Juliet in the forbidden nature of their love and all the adversity that comes with it.
This book actually made me more progressive in my world view. While I personally don't find the idea of incest appealing, I had to ask myself how exactly it is a moral wrong. I'm a secular humanist (yes, atheist), so I don't care what's written in any 2,000-year-old fairy books about talking snakes. As long as the relationship is consensual and no children are involved, where truly is the sin? I'm sure that at some point in human history there has been a brother/sister romance that was a beautiful thing, but it was never allowed to flourish in the society in which it was set. Obviously, in respecting the realities of reproductive genetics, I'm ruling out any argument that such a couple should have kids themselves. But whether or not a married couple should remain childless is a debate for another day. This last statement may shock some readers, but if a person can find someone who truly completes him/her, then very little should stand in the way - not race, religion, nationality, or even relation. This story touched me deeply, and I thank Selena Kitt for writing it. May such freedom of expression reign without the oppressive, smothering damper that is organized religion and its minions in the media.

I was a little sceptical when I purchased this, but WOW, I just couldn't put it down, every time I left the house I was thinking about getting back to it, and as soon as I was able, I picked it up and read another section or more. Such a hot tale and probably only for those interested in incest, but very enthralling. Definitely the best book I have read, now I will have to search Selena's overwhelming list of titles for something similar! WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW, WOW!

Wow, this was my first experience of Selena Kitty and boy did she open my eyes to the experiences of a young brother and sister's incestuous love affair.
An amazing read and I am going to have to quickly download another Selena Kitty novel straight away. Which one, I don't know. She has written loads. But I will find one and will let you know how I got on with it when I finish it.
I was looking for a bit of well written erotica. Something a guy could enjoy, so none of your long, blond haired muscled German hunks or earnest young women searching for their inner goddess.
This fits the bill nicely, with a lot of explicitly described sex. In this case, taboo sex. The young male protagonist embarks on a frankly pornographic relationship with his older sister. The writing is well accomplished and very arousing.
5.0 out of 5 starsWell who thought that families could be that exciting
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on September 7, 2018
This book took me by surprise, I was a reluctant reader to start with because of the whole thing isn't a social norm I guess. That said the book was really well written and very descriptive, highly erotic and I think its fair to say really enjoyable.

A sexy story, well crafted, and one that dives straight into the detail of a 'forbidden' family relationship! This is my first reading of Selena Kitt and if all of her work is this good then I am going to be both happy and poorer from all the books I will buy!!
