K. Webster is one of those authors who has the gift of being able to write just about anything. She doesn’t limit herself to just one genre. She also has a knack for writing some seriously steamy guilty pleasure reads, and that’s what these short novellas that are a part of her "Taboo World" are all about. Almost every novella is a scorching hot May/December romance between an eighteen-year-old girl and a man that is close to or in his fortie

Middle aged guy was betrayed by his best friend and his wife who cheated on him and have now gone off together and got married. To get revenge he decides to seduce his best friend's high school aged daughter (who also happens to be best friends with his own daughter!), I mean it's not like the young girl is an innocent who has done nothing wrong and isn't the one who betrayed him is it? Oh wait a minute...

This was a hot older man/younger woman story with a touch of enemies to lovers. While the heroine is eighteen she is still in high school. Due to the length of the book, there’s not a lot of foundation built although the heroine has had a crush on the hero for years but it’s now turned into something more. I worried that a part of this was going to feel revengey due to the heroine’s father having had an affair and then married the hero’s wife who then became his ex wife. But it never really hit ...more

Oh, what a beautiful storm she is.

Another hot and quick taboo treat from K Webster. Age gap. Best friends dad, and also ex best friends daughter. They kind of plan to use each other for revenge, but it becomes way more than that. OBVIOUSLY! The taboo treats always give us a HEA, so you can expect the steamy goodness and some lurve too.

Also. I can’t wait for Lauren’s story. I have a feeling she’s going to give us another emotional taboo treat. Love those ones!!

I love these taboo treats!!!

Red Hot Winter pairs up Winter and August (He’s Dane’s partner at the law firm). For those that haven’t read the entire list of books in this world, what is wrong with you???!!!

Red Hot Winter was an explosive erotic read. From their first encounter, till the last page. August was aggressive, demanding and rough in all the right ways. Our fiery Winter was sassy and a little bit broken, which was a perfect combination. It can be difficult to balance the heroines in
Mindy Lou's Book Review
This was a hot little read with an older man/younger woman trope. I'm enjoying the Read Me Romance podcasts but they are soooo short. It just didn't feel like a full story. I'm hoping that once the ebook is out there will be epilogues that will help with that.

Another of K’s steamy taboo treats I’ve unashamedly enjoyed, admittedly (& also unashamedly) in the most part because of the filthy mouthed, alphahole, 40-something daddy types she writes oh so well.
Sidebar: I’m still fanning myself over description of the white shirt, grey vest, pink tie combo...and then later, he rolled up his sleeves. Sweet. Baby. Cheeses. #NearlyDroveOffTheRoad

This was freaking hot; 5 stars all the way.
I love what Alexa Riley and Tessa Bailey are doing: this podcast adventure is such a great idea. I'm loving meeting all the new writers. And the audiobooks so far? Deliciously naughty.

I can't wait to hear more.

Enemies-to-lovers, taboo, age-gap relationship? What's new?

Forty-ish bitter old man who has nasty ex-wife and a daughter. The old man wants to get revenge on his daughter's best friend. Instead, got struck by lightning because she's sooo forbidden.

Nothing new. *shrugs*

I'm so tired this wash, rinse, repeat kind-of-story. Plainly boring.

Instalove, instasex always hot and steamy, insta everything as it’s always the case in these taboo stories and it’s an insta like from me all the time.

I’m never disappointed in Webster’s taboo treats. I totally loved Winter and he sassiness.

And soon I hope to see more of a certain doctor who already made an appearance in Enzo and got my lady bits all tingling.

Red Hot Winter is fiery passion, witty banter and scorching encounters wrapped up in this short, dirty novella. K. Webster is known for pushing boundaries and she does with August and Winter—an older man, younger woman romance between a recent divorcee and his daughter's best friend.

It is an instant lust/instant love, delicious forbidden romance that will incinerate every fiber of your being. And the narrators really brought this story to life!

Let's start with the positive.

Forgetting about where these two people are in life, I really enjoyed them as a couple. Their banter was great, the sex hot, but...

Yeah, there's a but...

The ick factor comes in when you take in that she's in high school. Thank goodness she's legal, but she's in high school and there is just something wrong with a 41 yo man screwing a girl in high school legal or not.

To get through the book, I tried not to think about that. But sometimes their conversation brought th

Red Hot Winter is everything you expect when you know K.Webster has written this book. It is taboo. It is sexy. It is dirty. It will get your pulse racing and hands sweating. It is so bad that it feels so good!

Winter is forced to leave her home and stay at her best friend/stepsister's house with her stepfather August. August's ex wife is married to Winter's father. She is an annoying and destructive woman who cheated on August and made his life living hell. August thinks about breaking down Wint

After reading the last couplefew Taboo Treats I really wanted to know just who could get under Mr. Cranky Pants/Asshat August Miller’s skin and worm their way to his heart, because that person would definitely have to be a force of nature, and boy was Winter just that! Red Hot Winter was all kinds of angsty smexy goodness and I loved every second of it.

August is all kinds of cranky, but he comes by it honestly, and though he comes across like he has a black heart, it’s not AS bl

Red Hot Winter K Webster is the story of August and Winter.
Winter is a young 18 year old lady who happens to be the daughter of the man August now ex wife was caught with. Winter has always had a crush on August but of course nothing came of it. Now she is needing his help which opens her up to interacting more with him...which leads to their feelings taking over. This was a quick, hot taboo type romance. Enjoyed it.
