“Lead us not into temptation…”

What happens when you fall in love with your best friend’s father?

Leah is a good, Catholic girl, and she and Erica have been best friends since their first communion. Sure, Erica’s father is handsome and charming, but Leah spends so much time at the Nolan’s—just Erica and her famous, photographer father now, since Erica’s mother died—that she’

Leah and Erica Nolan had been best friends for a long time. With the amount of time Leah had been spending at the Nolan's she was practically family. But a discovery under Mr. Nolan's bed changed everything about their relationships.

I read this book for the first time in 2014. It was the time when I was barely reading erotica and for whatever reason I can't remember de

Ok, i feel like I need to go to church...I basically stayed up all night reading Under Mr. Nolan's Bed...WOW! Selena Kitt is the Queen of Smut...seriously.

Besides the ick factor of the incest, this book was dirty and hot and wrong on so many levels, but it was a 4.5 star trash read for me. This book is one of those "dirty little secrets". You know you have one...this one, for instance, has been sitting on my "to read" shelf forever. It is

Oh god

I could of coped with the story until the incest.. i mean seriously I really enjoy F/F books so them getting it on was hot, I did not even mind her getting it on with the dad & then the girl separately, I did not mind the age gap at all.
Then they all do it together, *shudder* i just... words fail me.

The worst thing was that it was a like watching a car crash, i just could not stop reading! It was horrific but i just had to read it..

Then i read the ending...
At this point is where i ask myself WTF did i just read

Porn that is well written. That ending Argrrrrrrrh!

I will just leave this here:

"Yes, my child. "He swallowed his words and cleared his throat. "Is that all?"
I nodded, closing my eyes and lifting my sticky fingers to my mouth and tasting myself. "Yes."
"Let's pray together."

5 Taboo Stars!!

At 18 years old, Leah is a high school student who spends the majority of her time with her best friend, Erica. Due to natural teenage sexual curiosities, they discover what Erica’s father, Mr. Nolan, is keeping hidden under his bed. From that moment, a world of pleasure opens to Leah and she wants to experience it all.

“Doesn’t it feel good to be bad?” I touched my lips, still wet with her juices, and nodded. I had to admit – it really did.”

OK, let's get this straight from the beginning - this book is not really erotica, it is porn in book form. So, if you are not interested in this genre, particularly a Taboo oriented porn, you should stay away from this book, you will find it to be exactly what it is meant to be, which is Smut, and might be tempted to rate it as a romance or something else altogether.

I personally purchased it for the particular reason that I felt like reading some mindless smut, and this book fit th

I know what you're thinking ...


...but in my defense, I didn't actually read the version with incest, so that makes it much better (obviously).

You would think this would be a winner with me - best friend's father stories are my drug, I love the age difference, the taboo aspect, the sneaking around, big pieces of man meat- it floats my boat, I'm a dirty perv. Sadly, this one is not going into my 'bean flicking bank'.

Ok, breathe .... Urm, wow , this book was a complete shocker!! It started off a little strange, but after reading the first chapter you get into the rhythm of the book. This is some seriously smutty stuff. I didn't mind the first 3/4's as it was just as steamy as most eroticas and it seemed to have a good storyline, but then things start to get a little more taboo.. and the ending.. (Think the gif explains it all). Yep... that's all I'm gunna say... =D

There is no doubt about it; author Selena Kitt is the Queen of Taboo! I started reading Kitt’s stories back in 2010 and when it comes to taboo topics, her work is the gold standard, in my opinion.

I read the Forbidden Fruit version of this story--no incest/college aged.

If you're looking for some fairly generic porn, this is the book for you. It's a fun, quick read...but I get the impression, because of all the rewrites and different versions of this story, that Forbidden Fruit is pretty watered down. Worse, there are elements of the story that just don't work.

Leah and Erica are supposedly 20 years old, and at an all-girls Catholic college. Oddly, it appears the "college" is set up like

Selena Kitt, Under Mr. Nolan's Bed (Excessica Publishing, 2008)

I've been interested in Selena Kitt's stuff for a while now, but had never gotten around to reading any of her novel-length work until this. Actually, “read” is probably not quite the right description. Inhaled, maybe. Devoured. One way or the other, I burned through Under Mr. Nolan's Bed in a single sitting. I've spent the last year reading crappy kindle porn when I could have been reading this? What's wrong with me? I fell prey to

Honestly, I don't really know how would I rate this one.

Okay. So I read the blurb, a few reviews and I was so curious that I had to check it out!

I gotta say, yes, the scenes were pretty hot. I was never a fan of the super older male/younger female pair (something with a really wide age gap, around 15-20 years? Although I did have some exception). It was just really weird for me. Also, this was my very first read on a F/F scene. I didn't reall

I don't even know how to rate this book... It's too fucked up. At first you're so turned on and in the other you just want to throw up, but you can't stop readaing.
What the fuck did I just listen to?
No, really.. what did my virgin ears just hear?

Under Mr. Nolan's Bed was a very disturbing book to listen to. I had no idea what the hell I was getting into until it actually happened. Then it was one of those train wrecks that I couldn't look away from. Honestly, I just wanted to know how it was going to end.. and after I listened to that I have a feeling I'm going to have a nightmare or two.

Ummmmm. There's a party in my pants and I'm only a wee bit ashamed of it. Holy shit.

I previously read one of the revised versions of this book and while very smutty....this version (The OG gangster version found on Google Play) is the cremé de la cremé of dirty, bad, wrong smut. We got F/F, M/F, F/F/M and F/M/F and Daddy incest x 2. This book should come with a warning label. Fuck. I was not expecting that shit. This book is straight Fap City.

I read the original copy of this book so I have no idea if this book was much different but the original was fucking filthy as fuck and is my wank bank book!

It's incest and I don't give a fuck! The taboo the better!

After this book I've gone on a proper Selena Kitt binge and hope she brings some more 'banned books' out!

Usually I try to be fairly eloquent in my reviews, but I think I can sum up this review in two words: 1) Ick. 2) Gross.

Okay, I basically admit that I'm a bad person. I KNEW this book was about incest because it's pretty clear in the description and in all the warnings. I can try to convince myself that the only reason I finally broke down and read this is because it was a Nook lendable book that I got FREE from a friend.... But if I have to be completely honest with myself, the main issue is, yo

Review for the ORIGINAL version

Talk about taboo. I feel so dirty after reading this. I need a shower or to go to confession or something to cleanse myself of how much I like something so wrong. There’s girl on girl, daddy on daughter, a pretty big age gap, Catholic school girls, and a little ménage.

I like the pseudo-incest, banging the stepbrother books, but this is on a whole different level. Note that I read and am reviewing the original Under Mr. Nolan’s Bed which contains a whole lot of inc

FYI...this tech challenged reader downloaded the edited version of this book. This is NOT, I repeat NOT the same as Under Mr. Nolan's Bed by Selena Kitt . I will be reading that version as well, but just wanted anyone reading this to understand that I am reviewing the 'REVISED'version.

That being said, this book is HAWT!! Like stick my naughty parts in a tub of ice 'cause they are on FIRE!!! I usually bookmark my fav naughty parts, but there are WAY WAY WAY too many to bookmark...the entire book is a VERRA HAWT AND VERRA NAUGHTY

OMG!! WTF!! I think I said that about every page. This book is not for the faint at heart and it has taken me a year to get brave enough to read, but once I picked it up I couldn't put it down. I read the whole book in on setting, if you don't count when put it down to dance around in shock.

Under Mr. Nolan's Bed by Selena Kitt

What made this a great erotic novel was how well written it was. Because let's face it there are only so many ways you can lick something. Hehe. I love when an erotica author can write pages of sex and make it hot and fun to read.

Leah and Erica are young girls who attend a Catholic school, and are best friends. Leah spends a lot of time at Erica Nolan's and eventually Erica clues Leah into what is under her dads bed. His porn stash. They have the afternoons al

This is a revised edition of the original story Under Mr. Nolan's Bed. I've actually read all three versions of this story.

There were many changes to this book from the original. Some of the changes I liked and others I'm not sure about. I don't remember the original being set in the 1960's. This one definitely was. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about it, but after reading the entire story I realize it actually adds to the story. it makes it better.

There were many scenes added to this one.
Michael Dunellen
I didn't quite understand why this one was so controversial.

Leaving aside the ending, I just didn't connect with it. The first sex scene was fine. But the rest of it - and there was a lot - just got really repetitive.

I am actually surprised I didn't see the ending coming. It was pretty obvious when you thought about it. I certainly wasn't shocked.

I won't recommend this one to anyone and now that I understand that this is the first book in a trilogy I don't ever intend to getting around to finish
Jo * Smut-Dickted *
I have to say Selena Kitt is the ONE author who can get my juices flowing with a F/F scene. I tend to prefer M/M, M/F/M, M/M/F or M/F or some variation but the common theme is one F! Ms. Kitt can write sex that's gritty but not too out there. Sometimes controversial I absolutely know that anytime I click on one of her stories in my kindle I must have all my other *items* close by. If you're looking for a good story that will get you heated up look no further!
