7 Taboo, sexy novellas for a good cause. What could be better than that?!

I devoured these short stories. Some were clean, some were super dirty, but all of them made me fall for the forbidden love in them leaving me wanting more.

Out of the seven novellas, each book gave me just a something a little bit different. Blurry by Carina Adams was the cleanest of all the stories and probably the cleanest book I've read in ages but it was different and I kind of liked that about it. Sinful Abandon by J

7 Versions of the Verboten. This is an anthology of forbidden love novellas by 7 talented authors. I hear through the grapevine, that some of these tasty little morsels are going to get their own full length novels...to which I reply ~ HELL YES! May I please have some more?!

Each novella will give you a different twist on a taboo love story. Sometimes, they will make you fan your face, due to the heat. Other times, you'll be reading through your fingers as you want to cover your eyes and declare,

I loved this anthology! Each story is based on some type of secret affair, yet, they were all so unique. Some were over the top smutty and some were sweet and contemporary. You basically get everything you need in one book. I was a little saddened by a book or two. They were so good and then it just ended, yet the story was no way close to being over. I am begging and pleading with the Book Gods that they will release full length novels!! Some of these characters will be hard to forget. All in a ...more

Highly recommend one clicking this one. If you love just one of the authors, you will enjoy all the stories. There is something for everyone ;) a coach, an intern, a neighbor, a bartender,an airman, a doctor, and your dad's best friend. A lot of the authors are writing more of these stories and I can't wait to read them!!

Forbidden never felt so right!

I don't know how they did it, but this group of ridiculously talented women created something beyond amazing. It's insane how these ladies were able to captures my attention, pull me into a world, and make me fall in love within the first few pages, but did they ever...

You get every type of man within these seven stories: soft-hearted, strong-willed, hard-headed and determined, mysterious, noble, caring, and a full on alpha. Each has a beautiful story to tell.

I absolutely loved this collection of novellas from these authors. They might be short stories but they packed in a full story giving you time to fall in love with the characters and bring out a whole range of emotions. Definitely a must read.

I was given an ARC of Sinful Abandon by Jeannine Colette. It was incredible. It was sexy and steamy and I loved every word. I can't wait to read the rest of the stories in this!! I have no doubts that the rest will be just as amazing!!

I love taboo books—books that push your limits and leave you all twisted inside.
When I heard that Jeannine, one of my favorite authors, was writing a story for A Secret Affair, a collection of short stories with all proceeds going to The Bookworm Box, I was all over that baby!!!
In Sinful Abandon we meet Heather McCallister, a fierce, do-not-f*ck-with-me producer who knows what she wants and isn't afraid to get it. Money, power and security are all she needs in life. Or is it?!

I bought this mainly to support the Bookworm Box cause and it was very well priced and also on Kindle Unlimited.

Not normally a fan of anthologies as the contents are normally pretty short and book 1 of something. This was different and we actually got complete stories with the potential to bring out a follow up book.

full on illicit affairs, erotic, well written and great value for money. If taboo relationships are something you like to read then have a look at this one. I won't disappoint. A wel

Great compilation of novellas and stories from all the different authors. Each story drew me in and left me wanting to know more about the books they came from. I'm excited to add new reading material to my library. I think what I liked best about each one was the ability the authors had to make readers feel sympathetic towards the characters, and really show that first impressions aren't always what they seem.

I loved this book and love these authors! This book is 7 novellas and each story is different and forbidden. You will get a little taste of every kind of sexy inside these stories. I can't wait to read the ones that are continuing into full length novels. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves a sexy read.

I love all of these authors. Each story was very good. Some of them will continue in later books. That's what I love about anthologies. You get a sense of how the author writes and can purchase full lengths once you know. Being an author is a hard job and I like that I was pleased with each story. Very interesting reading.

I am usually not a huge fan of anthologies, but this one was beyond good. Each story was completely different from the one before but they all involved a secret affair, with some taboo aspect. I hope some of these novella evolve into full stories, I would gladly read any of them!

This was the first anthology I've read and I wasn't disappointed. With such an all star line up you will love each and every novella in this set.

Some taboo, some sweet and romantic, and some smutty that will have your Kindle melting. It had an amazing mixture of everything you could want, yes, they're all secret affairs, but each of them will have you hooked.

It doesn't matter what you're in the mood for, you'll find it in this anthology. I'd definitely like more on all these books, I'm not a h

So let me start off by saying this anthology is full of naughty taboo stories! Holy hell ladies make sure you have a spare pair of panties with you at all times!

There are 7 short stories about secret affairs in here and they will all have you wanting more, that's the only draw back to these anthologies is they leave you needing more details and dying to know what happens next.

I'm not gonna tell you about all 7 stories, but they are all hot and taboo. My fave 2 were Whiskey Bent & The Boy Nex

I normally don't really read anthologies, but when I heard that this one was titled A Secret Affair, I was on board. Forbidden and taboo books are some of my absolute favorite reads so I was excited for this!

I was only familiar with one of the authors that participated in this, but now I want to find all the other authors' past work. Some of these stories are torturing me because I KNOW there's going to be a continuation to them, at least I really HOPE there will be. I'm going crazy with not fi

We all have our own definition of what 'forbidden' means. Well let me tell you that this little gem covers them all.

A lot of the time I felt like I was witnessing a train wreck. Something that I knew I shouldn't be reading, knew it was so bad but couldn't stop.

I love how each short story was a different version of forbidden love. Some were hard to read, sometimes I felt disgusted. While others had me glued to every fucking word.

No matter what your definition of 'forbidden' is, there will be so

These women that wrote these stories are phenomenal. I loved every one of them for different reasons. Some hit home, personally. Overall, these women put together a spectacular compilation of all things sexual and romantic. I wish I could pick one favorite over another but I can't. They all live deep inside my wants and desires. Secret Affair authors, you are the cream of the crop. You exude everything that every woman wants and I salute you.

Whoa. Steaming hot

I didn't know what to expect when I got this book. The first story was overwhelmingly short for me and I wanted to read the entire book, so I did. I almost gave up reading this because I thought I would feel the same after every story- I didn't. After that first story, the short stories seemed complete and were all definitely taboo. This book is full of those naughty, sexy scenarios we all fantasize about but never experience.

This anthology will leave you with questions about how you see romance and break barriers you never thought of crossing. If you have "hard limit" at taboo relationships this isn't the collection of books for you but if you are willing to cross a line then pick up this fantastic collection of beautifully forbidden romances which all the proceeds are being donated to charity so it's a comp ...more
