We Shouldn't And Yet...
I didn't expect to feel so drawn to my best friend’s father when I first meet him.
It’s unexplainable and most of all, it’s unexpected. He drinks too much, is rough around the edges, and is so obviously into casual sex and nothing more, but there’s just something about him that calls out to me.
I’ve thought my hea ...more

Category: Contemporary Romance, Forbidden Romance
HEA: Not telling
I was anticipating the release of this book since the author announced it! Forbidden, taboo romance that pushes the boundaries? Count me in for the ride!
We meet Aideen as she moves away from her home to go live temporarily with her best friend.
What she didn't ...more
I really, really liked this!
The hero, Jensen is 38 years old, ex-military, a solitary man who has never been in love, and is haunted by the years he spent in the military. He has pretty big issues with alcohol, and as much as I don't like reading about alcoholics, I surprisingly really liked him. Oh, and he has a bike.
The heroine, Aideen, is 22 years old, but she is very mature for her age, at times even more mature than him, which really helped me believe in them as a couple, despite the huge a...more
Jensen is sixteen years older than Aideen, who at twenty-two has seen little of life, but has had her heart broken before. Jensen has seen his share of war and the after ...more

I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did, I love SMUT! I forgotten how much.
*insert wink face*
The story line, is unique apparently an off topic, though I have read this genre like years ago I love an Older man with a younger partner. Your best friend’s dad… right? I know I know but these two have some hot sexual chemistry that leaps of the pages, I was fearing my kindle was going to overheat.

"She's my son's crush, she's twenty-two. She's just a kid and she's sixteen years younger than me. She's off-limits."
I love taboo romance stories. There is just something about forbidden love that excites me. We Shouldn't And Yet... is about Jensen and Aideen. Jensen recently found out that he has a twenty-two year old son named Hal. Hal has a best friend named Aideen who temporarily moves in with them till she finds her own place. Aidee ...more
Aideens best friend is Hal who has a crush on her. Unfortunately for Hal Aideen falls for his father Jensen who is sixteen years older than her.
Jensen only recently found out that he was Hal's father. He's not in a good place and is struggling with his past. He knows Aideen is forbidden but it doesn't stop him being attracted to her.
A great forbidden romance story that has a good storyline, well developed characters and plenty of hot ...more

We Shouldn't And Yet was an interesting taboo read. I had never read a book that that is about the heroine falling for their best friends dad so I knew I had to read it as soon i could get my hands on it. One thing for sure is that this was steamy as hell. I felt like I shouldn't have enjoyed it as much as I did.
Oh and there's an age gap. I actually really enjoy books with age gaps, oddly enough. Jensen and Stephanie were both a bit damaged from their past but when they come togethe ...more
I really really love taboo romances, and OM/YW is one of my favourites, but I didn’t feel the connection between Aideen and Jensen, and found myself cringing on more than one occasion.
I also struggled with some of the writing early on, it didn’t flow and distracted me quite a bit.
I couldn't put it down, as I loved the story and the characters. This was everything I'd been hoping for and more, and I can't wait to check out more from this author. If you like this trope and are looking ...more
Aideen is about to start a new job and needs a place to stay while she looks for an apartment. Hal, her best friend, currently lives with his father, Jensen, and they happen to have an extra room. Hal never knew his father until recently. His mother got pregnant when she was only sixteen years old and never told Jensen. It wasn't until she got sick and that she even told Hal who his father was. So now, as they are trying t ...more

My Review (ARC provided)
I have never been disappointed with a book Stephanie has written, this one takes on a more forbidden topic than her others. It's a bit taboo, a little bit angsty and whole lot steamy.
Aideen (h) has left home for the first time, her best friend Hal has offered her a place to stay until she gets settled. Hal has strong feelings for Aideen to which she is oblivious of, and ...more
Aideen is attracted but she shouldn't be. After a tragic relationship, Aideen is moving to a new town with a fresh start. Staying with her best friend Hal and his father Jenson till she finds an apartment. But she didn't know she would be drawn to her best friend's moody father.
Jensen is attracted but he shouldn't be. Jensen knows that the forbidden feelings for his son's secret crush can only end in disaster. Jensen is too old, too broken, and living for his next drink.
I love a good taboo read ...more
Holy smoke, this book is HOT HOT HOT! The storyline is pretty insane and I'm glad of the ending, my emotions have been in turmoil through the whole darn thing. Absolutely fantastic.
The characters played the part well, they were descriptive and I love how this author eased into the story. The sex was something in a porn video and I found myself fanning myself ALOT.
I can't wait for everyone to read this because it's AWESOME!
Steph has once again entrapped me with her mesmerizing writing and story telling!
So many things I loved about this book- the angst, the emotion, the sexual tension, the steam factor
Oh the bike scene- hotter than the surface of the sun hot ☀️☀️☀️☀️☀️
“And yet… Yet it’s fucking there, isn’t it?’’
"We Shouldn't And Yet..." it's a hot, delicious and forbidden romance. Stephanie Witter took the word "HOT" to the next level and oh my! Jensen will make you melt in the most delicious way possible. Trust.Me!!!!
Because I know we shouldn’t, I know I shouldn’t, yet she’s there, gorgeous, hot and I’m craving a tas ...more
Aideen has been scarred by something from her past. She's not ready for a relationship. That is until she meets the brooding, usually drunk father of her best friend. There is an instant connection when the two meet, and although they b ...more
This was a story I couldn't put down! It was mostly sexy but I was even brought to tears once or twice. The sex scenes were steamy yet there was a solid plot with well-developed characters. I read the whole book in one day!
We Shouldn't and Yet is a new, standalone taboo romance by Author Stephanie Witter.
"What are you ready to do for love? Because I'm ready to go all the way and fight for us. I'm ready to do everything you want me to..."
The beginning of this story made me salivate. Aideen and Hal are friends, close friends. Hal has a definite attraction to her, but Aideen is a bit unsure of her feelings for him and safety in allowing herself to embrace these physical and emotional attachments. Hal curren ...more
Honestly woman big red letters next time, to let me know I am going to be incapacitated the entire afternoon!!!
I sort of thought I knew where this was going to head, so I suppose the level of my surprise is exactly what I deserved because assumption is the mother of all a***ac ...more
Holy. Smokes. This book was everything. What a way to pop my Stephanie Witter cherry by reading what is one of the hottest books I have read this year. Forbidden. Taboo. Lust. Desire. This book was all of that and more. Forbidden romance never looked so good. This author gave me a sensual read that teased my senses and captivated me.
We Shouldn't And Yet... was a brilliant read with tons of angst, steam, passion, intensity and drama with the appropriate amount of love and emotions. This ...more
I smirk at her, amused. What, so she didn't think I'd be a fucker with a drinking problem who is obviously very much into casual sex and reckless driving on a classic bike? I arch an eyebrow at her and run a hand along my square jaw. "I hope you find me sexier.”
