♥️Fantasy Land  Book Reviewer♥️
This was my first M.C. Cerny book and I have to say it was an interesting read. A story built into a jail where the warden isn't off limits for a certain prisoner. Yes, this might sound like a porno but trust me it is not. This is a great little novella.
I voluntary read an advance readers copy for my honest review..

I really enjoyed M.C Cernys The Warden it was a unique Taboo twist kind of story . Cohen and Nene share such an intense attraction they know what they are doing is wrong but it's oh so hard to resist "pun intended " . I devoured this to were there was no way I'd be putting my kindle down , you don't want to miss out on the steamy short book .

Received an ARC at no cost to author on behalf of Enticement Journey Book Promotions..Wow, this was a short steamy read.  It is a taboo relationship, between Nene and Cohen(the warden). He will help Nene clear her name in exchange for her..What happens? Does she clear her name? Well my friends you need to read..

Convicted for a crime she didn't commit, Benedicta only wanted to get the time done without creating any attention to herself in prison. Cohen on the other hand had other ideas. He needed information and Benedicta was someone the Red Tribe gang would try to recruit. Looks can be deceiving and Cohen was not so sure that Benedicta committed the said crime she was in for. Could Cohen possibly be her saving grace for getting out of prison and will Benedicta be the missing link to bringing down a dru ...more

This is the first time I have read any of this authors’ work, and my goodness, it will not be the last. This is a steamy, taboo storyline, and the chemistry between Cohen and Nene is explosive. Cohen is the warden, and in exchange for having Nene, he will help her clear her name. No spoilers; this is a must read, you will not be disappointed!
This is a fast paced and entertaining story, which had me hooked from the very beginning. I look forward to reading more of this authors’ work in the future

This was a steamy and taboo read that had me reading quickly to see what happened. Cohen and Nene chemistry was hot and their love affair was forbidden. I really enjoyed this novella.

The Warden
By: M.C. Cerny


⭐⭐⭐.5 Review by Kristie K

A scintillating taboo treat, The Warden definitely holds the key…

M.C. Cerny delivers a quick and taboo novella centered within the twisted and dangerous prison underground. Nineteen year old Benedicta Cruz was convicted of a murder she didn’t commit, and sentenced to years in prison. Though life wasn’t always easy, Benedicta was forging her way in life…trying to make something of herself…until one stupid decision lands her in prison for manslaugh

Forbidden in so many ways yet who cares about all the rules and bars

The Warden by M.C. Cerny is a steamy little book about two people who are not what they seem.

Nene is a 19yo woman who has no family as both her parents have died and is convicted of manslaughter for the death of a guy she dated. She was wrongly convicted, on circumstantial evidence, but does not have anyone to fight for her as her public defender is more than useless unless he is trying to do some time with her in a back room.

This story was okay. The story line is good, but it was too short to get more into the character's background. When I read a story, I like to be able to visualize the characters. Tall, short, blonde, brunette, redhead, curvy, sleak, muscle bound, you get the idea.

All I know is that Nene is Latino. Her family moved to the US when she was three. Her parents didn't allow Spanish to be spoken at home and they are now passed away. She is on her own and struggling. She works at a bar at night and does

Loved the twist of the heroine being the "bad girl", being sent to prison for a crime she didn't commit. Nene is going to get in way over her head and will need someone on her side.

Cohen is the warden in this prison but he's also a bit more (no spoils) who needs information about a man that Nene knows about. Their secret meetings get steamy but run the risk of not only being exposed but all the secrets going on inside them walls as well.

Will Nene deal with the threats and fear to not only get he

I really enjoyed this book, it was different from what I normally read. The words just flowed off the page and kept me intrigue to find out what would happen in the end.
I feared for her, she was so young, to be sent away for a crime she did not comment and to have to face all the danger and harm that she knew was coming her way.

*Spoiler* The Warden is an undercover agent, and one look at this young girl has him thinking dirty thoughts.....

This story is short, fast paced and action packed. I read this book in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. I liked NeNe and Cohen. I liked them as a couple. I did see some chemistry between them but as the story was short and action packed, I wanted a little more. I liked that NeNe tried to help Cohen and I liked Cohen’s determination to prove NeNe’s innocence. If he didn’t have that determination, she would have been locked up four years longer than she was.
The storyline for this book is

3 1/2 Stars

Cohen was instantly attracted to Nene and to his credit, tried to keep away from her. It didn’t help that he was working undercover as the Warden of the prison and she was a newbie inmate wrongly accused of manslaughter.
Not too much character development, but Cohen’s POV showed sincerity in his feelings toward Nene.
Story had a well deserved HEA for this couple but seemed a bit rushed and abrupt. I would have like a bit more detail on how the villains in the story were punished.

3,5* of good romance with a lot of hotness

This is a short, well written story. The plot has a lot of potential to build around and bring it to full length novel. Full of hotness, suspense and delightfully forbidden romance.
Even if short it was very well paced except maybe rushed ending. I wish I could read more about other events that was introduced in the story line but all in all I really enjoyed it.

I've read several books written by M.C. Cerny; she has done a great job at writing a good book; she is becoming one of my favorite authors. I can’t wait to read more of books her books.

The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book.

I loved the chemistry between the characters.

Unusual premise.

I like people who take risks. And I liked this premise and setting.
Cohen is under cover as a warden, working a sting.
Benedicta “Nene” is in for man slaughter.
He recruits her for intel and more physical naughty stolen moments in lock up.
Btw, she’s only nineteen and he’s obviously way older.
4.5 stars

Although a short and quick read, this book held my attention. Nene has been convicted of Manslaughter and is sent to prison. Cohen is appointed the Warden - he’s undercover with his partner (who’s is portraying an inmate) with orders to get information about a gang. An interesting read with a HEA.

This is an interesting short story that takes just over 90 minutes or so to read. It’s well written, with likable main characters. Some parts are quite realistic and other parts are completely fantasy which makes for an enjoyable read. There is a HEA to this story and the ending seems a tad rushed.

This book was steamy, nailbiting, scary, thrilling, and full of injustices that are surely only too real for a great many women incarcerated today. It was well written, had a terrific plot, and the characters all seemed real. It also had a good ending, phew.

The plot was good, and have a good beginning middle and an end. The writing, or maybe the editing, didn't flow. Causing many instances of trying to figure out what the writer was saying. This was the reasoning of my rating. Other than that, the book was good.
