Description:

Camp Buddies—Ian embarks on a camping trip with his best friend Guy, only to discover Guy has nurtured a flame for him for years. Swiftly, he gives himself up to the passions two men can share, but as their time together draws to a close, Ian despairs, unsure whether this fledgling relationship can withstand the pressures of the world.

Rock/Star—When Magnolia Marks meets rocker Sig Locke backstage after a concert, she thinks their instant connection is a one-time deal. After his roadie shows up on her doorstep with a ticket to exotic Maldives, she jumps at the chance to spend a week with the man who haunts her. She expects to relax at his beach house, but instead she finds Sig is keeping her separate from his world. Can she scale the emotional wall between his life in the spotlight and her simpler existence? And is Sig hiding something, or guarding his heart?

Mystery Lover—Noelle is leery when she’s invited to an all female Murder Mystery Party held at a nearby mansion. The invitation boasts a memorable night of conspiracy and corruption among contestants. And though she’s never considered intimacy with another woman, it’s obvious that her hostess Rosalyn thinks it’s high time she did. As Noelle uncovers the whodunits, she learns exactly who she’d like her first girl-on-girl experience to be with. And it’s definitely not in the bedroom with the usual tools.

To My Reader: The idea of throwing characters into exciting new situations and plunking them into new places sparked The Destination Ecstasy Series. I want to take my readers on a mini vacation while they live their fantasies through the characters. And maybe, if they’re lucky, inspire them to search for their own stimulating adventures.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.

Forbidden is an anthology of three short stories about unlikely love.  First in Camp Buddies, Ian and Guy are best friends, but a camping trip ignites passions.  Then in Rock/Star, the artist Magnolia meets the rock star Sig.  They had a hot one-night stand that neither could forget.  Will it lead to more?  Lastly in Mystery Lover, Noelle is invited to a murder mystery party, but she soon discovers that there is mystery lover pursuing her.

Holy smokes!  Each of these three short stories features a different type of relationship, either m/m, or m/f, or f/f, but they all share a common trait:  these stories will light you on fire!

Camp Buddies features best friends Ian and Guy, who both have a secret:  they are hot for each other.  I loved how these two guys had a history and obviously genuinely liked one another.  Their short story is steamy and heartfelt.

Rock/Star is next and my favorite of these three stories.  Sig Locke, a hugely famous rocker, randomly picked up the artist Magnolia at a concert.  Their one night together left a huge impression on him, causing him to almost become obsessed with Magnolia.  I adored how both characters wanted each other, kept dreaming about each other.  When they meet again, the chemistry between Magnolia and Sig is fantastic.  Also, issues about their relationship add intrigue to the short story.  Loved this story!

Mystery Lover finds Noelle in a man slump.  The invite to the murder mystery party sounds like a great alternative to spending another weekend alone.  I found the party odd, as did Noelle, especially since only girls were invited.  Plus, these girls were really interested in each other.  Noelle’s discovery is a bit awkward, but the story is supposed to feel that way.  I found the murder mystery party an odd way to get Noelle and her mystery love interest together and not necessarily to my liking.  Generally, Mystery Lover was my least favorite story because I felt the plot didn’t quite work.

I definitely recommend picking up Forbidden if you’re in the mood to taste the forbidden fruit of complicated love complete with hot, intense romance.
