Ivy. So sweet and young, so innocent and mine, even though I was crossing a line by simply desiring her.

Forbidden. I should stay away, but in my mind I’d already claimed her, already made the decision I couldn’t let her go.

If wanting her was wrong … I didn’t want to be right.


I was still in high school, hadn’t even experienced the world, but I already kn

Matthew and Ivy are close, their bond that of uncle and niece as he's her dad's stepbrother. When Ivy's mom passed away when she was younger, Matthew's presence became even stronger as he tried to help fill the void left behind. Lately though, Ivy has been seeing Matthew as so much more and wishing their situation was different, that there was a possibility for a future. And when Ivy's dad loses his job, Matthew doesn't hesitate to move in and c0ntribute, which makes Ivy's attempt a

So Good was just as the title says, SOOOOOOO GOOD. I loved this story. It was a quick taboo story that you can devour in one sitting. It was hot, hot, hot. Matthew and Ivy burn up the pages. Jenika does it again. I suggest you pick this book up. You won’t regret it.

Enjoyed reading after a slow start for me. The story of Steven, a father raising his daughter, Ivy, after her mother dies. He doesn't look for a new love, then years later he falls in love again. He does have help from his step-brother, Matthew.
Ivy is Matthew's step-niece. She's forbidden even though they are not related. He's too old for her but, he wants her.
Ivy has been in love with her Matthew forever. She doesn't care about boys, she only wants him. She's still in high school and has only o

I enjoyed this story for the most part. It did start off a little slow, but we did all the angst of two people who couldn’t be together. Ivy and Matthew had hella chemistry and it was quite torturous to see when they would cave in! While it wasn’t my favorite Jenika Snow story, it still packed the steam that I’m used to getting from her. If you are looking for a quick taboo story that you can finish in one sitting, then pick this one up.

I received an ARC via the author for an honest review.

My reason for not giving 5 stars is because this storyline has been done a million times before, if this was the first one I had read then maybe it would have been a 5 star read, but sadly (for the author) it is what it is.

That doesn't mean this wasn't a good book, I read it on one sitting so I definitely enjoyed it!

This was incredibly stereotypical (as stereotypical as a virgin step-niece and much much older step-uncle storyline can get) and corny, but it was probably the nicest I've read of t

5 Stars!

Jenika Snow is back with a brand new standalone novella that is steamy, swoony, and a whole lot of taboo.. forbidden. So Good was so so so so good y'all! Sexy. Sweet. Intriguing. And fast like lightening yet still feeling every little punch.

He wants her. She's been saving herself for him. They shouldn't cross lines he's drawn and they shouldn't let the boundaries blur yet neither Matthew or Ivy can help themselves and one touch is going to change everything. Together they are hypnotic, i

So Good by Jenika Snow is a taboo romance that starts off slow but builds up to an epic climax. It's definitely full of steamy heat, drama, angst, twists, taboo romance and forbidden situations. This is a novella that you have to read. Matthew and Ivy's love is one of beauty. It was about half the book before they were even "together" because Matthew didn't want to cause trouble for Ivy. Yet Ivy knew they belonged together and then when together, it was them against everyone else. Forbidden love ...more

When Jenika Snow writes a book that is a "forbidden" romance , I'm right in there. Matthew is Ivy's step uncle but that doesn't stop her from wanting him. With him being her dad's step brother, she's known him most of her life but as she gets older, her feelings towards him change. Matthew is having problems with his feelings for Ivy also. He knows it's wrong but he can't help himself. How long will these two dance around each other before they give in? I just love stories like this and Jenika d ...more

I am a huge lover of forbidden romance and I thought that this was a very good one. Steamy, angsty and emotional, it was very easy to get pulled into Ivy and Matthew's story and to become emotionally invested in this couple. This is a mid-length read which might have been an issue but with the way the book is written and how the story unfolds it really wasn't. I felt that this couple's relationship evolved without things being rushed. I know this will be a book that some will not enjoy (a romanc ...more

This was a fabulous forbidden/taboo quick read. It was the story of Matthew and Ivy. 🖤Matthew was so delicious , tattooed, older, sweet, caring, just the right amount of possessive (not stalker or creepy). He was the Step-Uncle to our heroine. Ivy was gorgeous. She was senior in high school ,and for most part she was pretty mature for her age. She had lost her mom at a young age so she grew up with just her dad Stephan ,and his step-brother Matthew. As she got older she began to develop feelings ...more

Ok , I have no problem with fake taboo books, like no blood relatives and so but in the begining of the book, it says that our H watched our h from little child which I found distrubing, although he states that had though of her as a woman when she turned 18... so, being legal changed his feeling after watching a child growing up her whole life? That's fucked up! That my 2 cents! Everything else was a known trope! ...more

So deliciously taboo and I loved it!

This book was taboo, sexy and absolutely delicious. Ivy has loved Matthew for as long as she can remember. The kind of love she feels has changed over the years and now she doesn't just love him, she's in love with him. Only problem is that he is her step-uncle and she's barely nineteen. Matthew has been fighting what he feels for Ivy ever since she turned eighteen. He knows loving her is taboo and some would even consider it wrong, but he can't help it and he

If you like your books a little taboo, a touch dirty but oh so good then this is the book for you. Matthew and Ivy are family but not by blood, he has watched her grow from a young child into a beautiful young woman. The love and attraction they feel should be wrong but what happens when it all feels so right. As lines are crossed and love declared can these two show all the people around them that matter, that something so perfect shouldn't be judged. A hot steamy romance that will have you cau ...more

Great plot, no depth.

It has a good premise but poor execution. The characters seem superficial, at no point do you even figure out what the father does for a living, why Matthew and Ivy love each other, I mean great they love each other but what do they love about the other person? They never say! There’s no real depth to the characters, just the very basest of emotion. I wouldn’t read this again or suggest that someone read it. Would give it one star but it does have a good plot to it.

This story was so good! Ivy and Matthew have been in each other's lives for what feels like forever. He's her father's step brother. Family. Taboo. But they can't help their feelings and act upon them. Will they be able to handle the consequences? Loved this story. Loved these characters. Ivy and Matthew were so real and I felt like I was right there feeling what they felt.

Sooo Good

This was an awesome book a little more serious than Jenika's light hearted love stories Ivy and Matthew are related, sort of, and having a relationship from their love is just a little bit different. I have read step brother, father's best friend, but never a step uncle. This was a new plot that was great.

And So Perfect!

Matthew has been Ivy's family and protector out of necessity since her family's loss. He's older, caring, and her step-uncle. But she's slowly fallen in love with him. What she doesn't know is that Matthew feels the same. But will they be able to weather the storm brewing from their relationship?!

Good story

Matthew & Ivy were a couple in the truest sense of the word! They both loved each other AND they were aware of how their actions might affect others. I just wasn’t sure their familial relationship needed to keep them apart. It wasn’t even a blood relationship!! I’m glad it had my essential HEA or HFN. Sweet story!

I absolutely loved this book. Matthew and Ivy’s Love was taboo not only because he was significantly older but she is his stepbrothers stepdaughter!!! Their story is hot and sweet and in true Jenika Snow fashion has a happily ever after!

Ivy might be young but she knows who her heart belongs to. Matthew tries to stay away but the heart wants who the heart wants. Will everyone else be okay with their relationship? Loved this story!

So hot!

A forbidden romance, filled with plenty of heat. Jenika Snow brings a great story, sucking you in from the very beginning and making it so you don't want to put it down to the very end. Loved it!

Hot and sweet

"Taboo" on a few platform but such a good story. Quick, hot and put together well. Matthew and Ivy have been hiding their feelings and can't after a certain point no matter the cost.
