This is not a stand alone and at the very least you do need to read From The Ashes first. As much as Sam will always be my favourite Wolfe brother, Kael is just on a whole different level. Kael was pulled into this world despite wanting nothing to do with it, but since it was his families legacy, he accepted that he had no choice. Until he met her. Paige was forced into this world of which she knew nothing about, and forced to do things she didn't want to. It was unbearable but, she thought she ...more

I received a BETA copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Dani René!

Wow. I thought Crave was amazing, but this was something else entirely. Dani René is such a talented author, it's crazy. She will take you for one heck of a wild ride. You will cry, you will fall in love with the characters, you will ache for their pain, and rejoice in their happiness. You will go through every emotion in the spectrum with Paige and Kael.

This book is not for the fainthearte

Covet is bittersweet to me! I loved it but sad to see Kael & Paige's story come to an end.

Dani does not disappoint and wraps their story up nicely. It's hot, it's beautiful, it's dark, it's deep, did I mention it's H O T!!! I have so much love for these two and Dani's writing.

I definitely recommend this series to all you dark romance & BDSM Lovers but you must read From The Ashes before reading Covet.
Also, it does contain some very dark scenes that could be triggers, discretion advised

PLEASE read "From The Ashes" first. It's imperative to get the full impact of this dark romance read, and you're robbing yourself if you don't.

If I wasn't already in love with these two & their hard fought attempt to find love where there really shouldn't be any, I sure as shit would be now.

Holy Hell - literally & figuratively - what Kael & Paige go through is... I don't even have the words. You just have to read their story, to feel it wash over you, and let it pull you under.

"To covet the forbidden is dangerous,
Yet, I see no threat in your eyes
When you look in mine
All you'll see is love"

Hot damn Dani you've done it again!! Covet is the second book in the Forbidden Series although this isn't the first time we've meet Kael and Paige. We were given a short novella which MUST be read first o.5 "From The Ashes" to really follow and appreciate this extremely intense story.

What happens to these two main characters is not for the faint hearted. Especially Paige

Dani happens to be one of my favourite authors, I swear I love this lady's mind. She's incredible. I freaken love my wolfe Kael I can't get enough of him she could write a. Whole series just on him and I would still ask for more. Let's say I have it bad for this sexy wolfe. He's one of the sexiest Dom's I have ever met. This book needs a hell a lot more than 5star rating. 5 stars doesn't do this book Justice!!

WOW! This series just keeps getting better and better. I must admit I fell in love with Ms. René the first time I picked up and read Broken By Desire. Her flare with the written word has amazed me from day one. Her works are gifts to the world that this reader will always treasure. While the Forbidden Series is a darker genre, it’s still got the same phenomenal touch that strictly belongs to Ms. René.

Covet is a continuation of Kale and his Firebird’s story. We first met them in the novella From

Omg, Covet was amazing. There was so much I craved in this series. You need to read From the Ashes to be able to understand Covet. When I read Form the Ashes, I completely fell in love with Kael and Skyla/Paige's story. There was so much between them that I wan completely addicted to them. I needed to know more. Then I read Covet and I was so blown away. The richness and the deepness really cast a spell on me. I was hooked.

Covet by Dani Rene is a steamy, hot and 100% sinfully dark romance that is part of the Forbidden series. As book 2, this is not a standalone. It is highly recommended to begin at the beginning with From the Ashes.

Every emotion will be touched in this book/series thanks to the wonderful writing of Ms. Rene. Be warned however, that her skills as an author can take you to the depths of the abyss, sucking you in in her wonderful thoughts and wild fan

Wonderfully Dark and tortuous....

I have fallen in love with this wonderfully dark, tortuous and erotic series.... Paige and Kael first appeared in the novella From The Ashes and now they take centre stage in a full length novel...

This author is a marvellous storyteller, adept at setting the scene and creating complex and believable characters.... the two main characters take turns to tell their version of events.... from the very beginning their conflicted emotions are identified with their cont

Covet by Dani Rene is the sequel of From The Ashes.
I fell in love with Kael and Paige when i read FTA and their story is nothing like another love story you will find in other books.

Kael was like poison to Paige.He was a monster.Yet she fell hard for him.And got burnt in the process.Years later,Paige rises from the ashes of the past,determined not to let the past overpower her.But when her only salvation and doom resurfaces,little can be done to stop the inevitable.

In order to full appreciate and comprehend everything that happens in his story between Kael and Paige you NEED TO read From The Ashes first. I love these Wolfe brothers but something about Kael and the way he is dominant yet gentle just pulls you to him like a magnet. We're taken the darkened path to where everything began, I feel for Paige and all she is living though. She's a strong woman for keeping herself together after all of that, I don't think I would be able to myself. With Kael you ju ...more

Covet is an extremely intense story. The emotions these characters go through is not to be taken lightly. This story is also not for the faint of heart. The connection between Kael and Paige is very unique and combustible. There is an intense fire between them from the very start. Two souls forced into a life that neither of them wanted and they somehow found a way through as a unit and also alone. A dark read that may have some triggers for some people but overall this is a really great read.

Covet fills in all of the unanswered and unknown events that are left from From the Ashes.
I highly recommend reading From the Ashes to fully appreciate,understand and love Kael and Skyla's life journey.

Five Thrilling Stars! This is the second book in the Forbidden Series and should be read in order to fully understand the story. Please note that this is a dark erotic romance and should be read with caution if you have triggers. We again join Kael and Skyla's story but now we go back to the beginning to find out what happened. Kael was part of a family organization that trained slaves for working in the club. Kael wanted nothing to do with this world but since it was his family's legacy he had ...more

Wow! This book is amazing!! Covet is dark and emotional but hot as ever! I just can't get enough of this wonderful series! I'm not use to reading dark books and I will be honest at times it was hard to read but I'm so happy I did. It was incredible! Kael and Paige are both forced into a situation neither one of them want to be in. I love the chemistry between Kael and Paige. Their relationship is so

Covet is part 2 of the Forbidden Series. To me, the defining line in this book is:" You can never get over your soul mate" I touched my heart and it is so true...
This is a story of family loyalty with a lot of secrets, love, sex, betrayal, intrigue and sometimes, pain. The story is very dark, and sometimes the sex in the story makes you sit up a bit straighter, but Dani writes with so much compassion, that it blends perfectly into the storyline. Kael and Skyla's story is filled with just as much

Well Sam Wolfe really took the back seat this time even though he will always be my favorite Wolfe man because holy shit Kael didn't come to play.This is not a standalone, you'll definitely need to read From the Ashes first before Covet.The sexual of this book will give Fifty Shades a run for its money.Dani knows her shit and she didn't even hold back.

I can not seem to get enough of the powerhouse writer that Dani René is. Dani has a way with making the darkest desires in her writing so explosive that I am in love.

I have been patiently awaiting Covet, and it definitely did not disappoint. This book is not a standalone and at the least you should read From the Ashes.
Kael wanted nothing to do with the Wolfe family business, but nonetheless realized this was his 'legacy' and was going to at least attempt to give it a go. That was until he met Paige. She was a game changer in the very best way. He hasn't ever had a connection with a slave before this. He'd neve

Paige finally has her freedom and the man she loves is back in her life. Now she doesn't know where or how to go forward, but she knows she doesn't want a life without him. But darkness creeps into your mind, even when you are at your happiest. She has demons and fears she has to face, and with him at her side, she knows she can sp

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of Covet. Please note: From the Ashes needs to be read to fully savor Phoenix/Paige and Kael's story.

Covet is a story of rediscovering oneself after a horrific past. What do you do when you covet something with all your heart? To covet something so much that you forget your past and present? What Paige and Kael coveted was pure love for each other. Both were thrust into a dark world unwillingly, but in each they found a kindred spirit. The horrors of their pa

I have read all of Dani's previous books but this book for me was a game changer. She absolutely knocked it out the park. Just when I thought she couldn't get better she brought this book out, I don't know whether to kiss her or scream at her as I need more of her words now. I just can't bear to wait any time for more of her words.

Wow if ever there was a way to give more than 5 stars for a book Covet is it. This is book 2 in the Forbidden series and I honestly have to say Dani Rene' has outdone herself. I thought Crave was outstanding, but the emotional rollercoaster the arthur takes you on will have you falling in love with the characters. You'll feel what they went through and your heart will be to overflowing and it won't be the same again. You have to have read From the Ashes to understand Covet, because this book is ...more

If you like dark romance then this book is for you, but be sure to read the novella From the Ashes first, it will give you needed information.

Make sure you read From the Ashes, a novella, before you read Covet as it's a continuation of Paige and Kaels story.

As soon as I had finished From the Ashes I jumped right into this story. I couldn't resist. As much as I loved Paige and Kael I loved them even more in Covet. Any questions we had after reading From the Ashes are answered in Covet.

I found Paige and Kaels story emotional, heartbreaking and intense. This is a dark read with trigger warnings. I'm looking forward to reading more from
I thought the other books were good this was the icing on the cake. It was full of dark romances, hot sex and so much more. You fell in love with Kael from the start and you just wanted to help Paige out from her hell hole. Absolutely loved this book!! Dani is one brilliant writer! Definitely worth 5 stars *****

This is the rest of Kael and Skyla (Paige)'s story that started in From the Ashes.
You learn about what Paige went to when she was at Caged.
You learn what caused Kael to change his ways.
You learn how they lived life after until they found each other again and what happened after.

This book has some really, really dark scenes in it. Like crazy dark and it is not for everyone. And it also has some really hot scenes.
