Denise Owens
Forbidden Desires: Taken by her Son's Best Friend (Confessions of a Trophy Wife Book 1) by L.M. Mountford is a novella that started out well but by the end I was confused, and the ending was disappointing. It seemed like the story was just getting started and then it just ended. I realize that this is book 1 in a series but I'm confused by where this series is going. I would like to read book 2 so that I can get a handle on if this book is a cliffhanger, or if this is a series of short stories.

Hot, sensual, and sexy are just a few words to describe this tantalizing novella. Thoughts of Mrs. Robinson in The Graduate roam through my head to this upgraded version that blows Dustin Hoffman out of the water. Mmm-mmm-good! I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this novella.

FORBIDDEN DESIRES is a very hot and steamy romance about an older woman / younger man. Elizabeth Clarke and Hugh Becket will definitely set your tablet on fire!! This just proves age doesn’t matter. DID I MENTION IT WAS HOT!?

HOLY SMOKES !!! Forbidden Desires was one smoking HOT read!! From the first page until the last I couldn't put it down. It's a quick read, deliciously sexy, forbidden, sinfully hot, with plenty of steamy moments, and I loved every single page of it. An excellent sizzling read and highly entertaining. This is one book you don't want to miss so one-click now, you won't be disappointed.

This was the second book that I have read by L.M. Mountford. I will say that I definitely liked this one a lot better then the other one I read. It had more character background then the other one I read. You got to see the changes that the characters went through when they were with each other. The connection between Elizabeth and Hugh was adorable even though there was a big age gap. It was definitely a very steamy romance but it was so enjoyable. I can honestly say I can't wait to see what ...more

This book will set you on fire,it is so scorching Hot..
A delicious Forbidden Older woman younger man story, Elizabeth and Hugh have an electrifying chemistry.
Elizabeth's life is not as perfect as it appears to the outside world,even though she has a husband she is incredibly lonely within the marriage, so when Hugh her son's best friend shows an interest in her all bets are off.I don't think I could even resist Hugh,he turns her lonely world upside down in the most exciting way.

This is a great story! Very steamy with a story that makes you realize that things are not always what they seem. What you see on the outside is not the same behind closed doors. Elizabeth and Hugh have a connection that is undeniable despite their difference in age. Is that enough for a relationship? Is it a fling? How will it end? Pick up a copy and see. You will be glad you did. I enjoyed their story and I am looking forward to more from this fantastic author!! I am voluntarily leaving my ...more

A hot and steamy read that will have you lost in the fantasy of an older woman and a younger man in a forbidden desire that has been years in the making. A nice short read that will have feeling many many things just like the character Elizabeth Clarke is Married not happily but still married.

Hugh Becket is not the little boy Elizabeth remembers playing with her son, he is a man a very sexy man that's hot and is forbidden in more ways than just being young he is also her son best friend.

This might be many older women's fantasy! A younger, smart, Adonis of a man interested in his best friend's mom. Mrs. Clarke's life is changing in more ways than one. Hugh, phew, he made me hot! This was a sexy, fun, quick, "bedtime" read!!!! I enjoyed this novella A LOT!

I received an advanced reader copy, and this is my honest and voluntary review.

“Forbidden Desire” is a burning hot older woman, younger man tale that keeps you putting out fires from the first page to the last. This is the first tale in a new series and is the perfect short tale to begin this series. This sinfully delicious tale will keep you thumbing pages long after you read the last word. I loved it.

Hugh is Elizabeth‘s son‘s best friend and her best friend’s son. Her husband Patrick cheats on her constantly and she has been a loyal wife, until she’s not. Hugh has wanted her for a long time and now he is taking her. This is one hot, hot, hot read. Elizabeth finds what she’s been missing for years. And she finds it in Hugh. A steamy, sexy romance that will have your heart pumping.

the perfect mom finding her son's best friend. i have to say the book was amazing. the details in the experiences Elizabeth had with Hugh. How Elizabeth struggled emotionally but to have Hugh be such a force. But the best part is the ending, it was such a WOW moment. To have it end in this way was awesome.

You just have to read this book to find out

I am so glad that I was able to be able to read this book. I havent read one about an older woman with a younger male in a long time and forgot how much I really liked the concept of the story line. It was really good to see that the guy went after the woman to make her see things his I really could get into another one like this.

Very hot story between a bored, older married woman, Elizabeth, and a super hot, smart, strong younger man (who happens to be friend with Elizabeth’s son). This is a very hot story but a bit short for me. ARC review

This isn’t my favorite genre of reading material.
But I was quite surprised with the plot of this book.
Definitely has a lot of steam and a few twists to it.
The chemistry between the characters is hot and steamy.

This book is sexy, hot, amazing. I loved it from the beginning. An older woman and younger man, their heat burns off the pages. I didn't want this to end. You will need a cooldown after reading Forbidden Desires. I cannot recommend this enough. A must, must, must scorching read.

Read by Shon

Still deciding if it’s a 2.5 or 3 stars!

It was ok a quick read but there was just something lacking with the story. I did like the fact that this was a romance between an older woman and a younger man.
