Dance like no one’s watching.
Fuck them with your eyes.
Make love to them with your moves.
But, no sex with the patrons. Ever.

In Ana’s case, that someone is Ethan Faulkner. Rich, sexy and confident, and a patron of the exclusive gentleman’s club where she works as a dancer.
Will Ana play by the rules, or will Ethan have her Dancing with Desire?

Sins of the Flesh by Adriane Leigh
She walked into his church wounded and seeking solace, what she didn't expect to find was temptation so sharp and sweet under one snow-white collar.

For Toni Masters, moving from a small country town to the city, to pursue her nursing career, is a dream come true. But her first day on North Ward is not what she had hoped for.
Toni’s first patient encounter is with twenty-six year old Michael Davidson, or Harley as he is known to his friends. Harley is difficult and miserable being stuck in a hospital bed, and only seems happy when he has the nurses running in circles. But all Harley’s efforts to antagonize the new nurse, only make Toni push back and give as good as she gets.
A mutual respect is born along with a growing attraction, and Toni vows to do all she can to make Harley’s stay in North Ward as comfortable as possible.
But how far will Toni take her duty of care?

At the age of 37, Rick has had enough. He’s done with Sofia’s abusive behavior. He’s done watching her lying around the house, strung out on the drug of the week. But he is not willing to leave Gabriella alone with her. As wrong as he knows it is, Rick has had an unhealthy attraction to his step-daughter from the time she started high school.

REVIEW:

Forbidden Fruit Volume 2 is an erotic short-story anthology with an forbidden love theme. The stories (listed below) include the forbidden passions of patient/nurse, step-dad/step-daughter, prince/wicked witch and more. If taboo pairings like that squick you out, avoid this book; but if you can read this with an open mind, you’re in for a treat.

The books are:
* Dancing with Desire by Kasey Millstead 

* Sins of the Flesh by Adriane Leigh 

* Duty of Care by Lisa Edward

* Burning Desire by Vicki Green 

* Tempted by Roxy Queen 

* Her Secret Service by Liv Morris 

* What Mother Doesn’t Know by Nikki Worrell 

* The Taste of Mr. Davenport by Jessica Ingro 

* Surrendering Innocence by Amalie Silver 

* Wicked, Wicked, Wicked Witch by Penny Reid

I’m not going to review each story, but I’ll give you a shortlist of the best and worst in the book. First, the worst: Dancing with Desire was a story without much of a point. Stripper sees hottie, decides to have sex with him despite knowing she’ll lose her job. It didn’t get resolved and the heroine was unrelateable. Burning Desire was more classic erotica but again had a go-nowhere heroine. I found it hard to suspend my disbelief on this one. Her Secret Service was just plain icky in places and the hero was very unbelievable to me.

Now for the bests: Sins of the Flesh dealt with a Catholic priest and a young college drop-out. Very hot, very taboo, and open-ended. I will be looking for the rest of this story for sure. The Taste of Mr. Davenport started out kind of shaky but was surprisingly touching by the end. Very realistic fallout of this kind of taboo romance. Wicked, Wicked, Wicked Witch was also wonderful. The history between hero and heroine made for a ton of tension and left you rooting for them both by the end.

Favorite Quote:
“Please, just let me go.”
“I’ve tried that,” he growled, his grip on my neck tightening, his tugging a bit more forceful, urgent. “I’ve tried everything. I’ve given you time and space. I’ve stayed close without pushing. I’ve tried to follow your lead – but you never talk to me, not unless it’s in a script. If I have to spend my life watching you without you looking back, I’d rather be blind.”
~Wicked, Wicked, Wicked Witch by Penny Reid
