Publisher's Summary

After 15 years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed - and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth - except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B - Bondage and Breakfast - catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go.

Some Things Should Stay Forbidden

This book and story line had potential, but overall this book wasn’t for me. The voice wasn’t all that great either.

steamy if you can get past Ms. Holiday's narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Only if they couldn't find anything else to listen to...

What didn’t you like about Lola Holiday’s performance?

She sounded like a teenager...a more mature voice would have been better and Alex sounded like a drip.

OK, story... So-so narration

The story here was decent. It was nice to read about 2 married people reconnecting with each other and discovering their private fantasies after so long. That's a unique take in a world of books that mostly deals with single people getting together for the first time.

Unfortunately, it just felt like something was missing and the narration didn't really help.

Pleasantly surprised for this genre & price!!

I wasn't expecting too much from this book considering the genre & price. I have to say that the story was surprisingly insightful, while at the same time providing some very hot scenes!!!
Perhaps because I could relate to the main character (married to the same man for many years, looking to "spice things up" between the sheets, etc) the story sounded pretty authentic to me.
The protagonist finds herself looking to push some new sexual boundaries, but she's afraid that her husband my react negatively and might reject her. As you might expect, he's more willing to be convinced to try new things than she realizes...
Just a quick, short, hot story that provides some insight into what seems to be a pretty common situation for couples these days: what happens when we come to have different expectations and the consequences of not being able to properly communicate them to our partner...Cheers & Happy reading!!!

Good book, Glad I purchased it.

This was a good steamy, romantic book. I loved the storyline of this and that it had some good, hot and steamy love making scenes that kept you on the edge of your seat.

Communication - love and Fantasies

Any additional comments?

A nice short story highlighting the need for Communication and honesty with your partner. Add a little hot sex and intrigue and this story was quite good. I enjoyed the narration by Lola Holiday. Good book for the price and a happy quick listen.

Sexy and Sweet

This was both a sexy & a sweet book. It was written from a dual POV Jessica & Alex's. This really upped the steam factor for me. I loved reading what they both were feeling/thinking. I loved Jessica & Alex's marriage, it seemed really realistic. They were a lovely couple & i totally connected with them. The story was really interesting & I was glad they managed to work through their sexual issues. The sex scenes were plentiful & they were HOT.

One of the Best Exrotica book I've read!

no

Very Sexy-and honest to an everyday situation

Which scene was your favorite?

The husband finding her thoughts to be sexy

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

yes

Any additional comments?

I really thought this would not be worth my time, but found it to be one of my favorites! It is SO true, and tells the everyday story of a real life story! I found it to almost be mine and my husbands situation-playing out in front of me! Recommend this book!

Most realistic book I've listen to!

This short book was reviewed by someone I follow and for $4 I figured why not! So glad I did! I imagine something similar has happened across America with the advent of "mommy porn", aka 50 shades.

This is the story of a happily married normal couple, they have 2 kids, they live on a cops salary, they have been married for 15 years and everything is normal....until the wife reads an interesting book! It isn't like she has been a prude or gone without but her husband and her have nice normal sex....but what's in the book turns her on and she feels weird about that fact. She had a conservative upbringing so in her mind she shouldn't like the idea of being tied up, or anything but missionary sex...this leads to guilt which leads to her husband thinking he is doing something wrong or maybe she is unhappy or heaven forbid is she having an affair?

Can she tell him about her darkest forbidden fantasies before she looses him forever...and will he accept her or think she is twisted?

Nice book, worth the $4! Go for it!!!!

Lots of fun - Sexy, Erotic, Exploration

If you could sum up Forbidden Fantasies in three words, what would they be?

Sexy, Erotic & Exploration

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

It is between a married couple and the exploration of sex [into kinky, erotic] is between a married couple.

What does Lola Holiday bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She is a great narrator...I don't read a lot - love listening and narration can make or break a book.

Any additional comments?

It's a short, mildly erotic story. Adult themes...not for 'vanilla' romance readers.
