Unwrap Him By Nyla K.

Unwrap Him is a spicy and perfect Christmas novella. Jesse and James are everything.

Jesse is aware that his feelings for his guardian, James, are wrong. He has tried to suppress them, to forget them. Easier said than done, and truth always has a way to come out.

The chemistry and passion between the two are off the charts. 🥵In between the spice is sweet, memorable moments. With a touch of grief. Nyla K. Always amazes me. She draws you in and captivates you and del

My review is for STRAY by JD Hollyfield:

Did someone say stepbrother romance?
They sure did, and I was here for it.
This story was all sorts of naughty and filthy and taboo. And it was utterly delicious.

Cat comes from a family of neglect, abuse, with no affection or love. She does unthinkable things, makes bad decisions. For attention? To receive some sort of love? To feel seen? More than likely.

Enter the sexy AF asshole at school who’s nothing but rude to her. She soon finds out, it’s Hunter,
ARC received by Nyla K for her story in this anthology, Unwrap Him.

Nyla K never lets me down with her stories. They can be dark, filthy, delicious and I always end up swooning HARD for one if not all the main characters. Unwrap Him was shorter than her other books because girl likes to make them THICK, but it had that same punch that all of Nyla's stories do.

James might not have been Jesse's biological dad, but he did raise him and the feelings that he is having for his guardian are entire

Fa-la-la-la-NAUGHTY!!! Someone sat on pervy Santa’s lap this year- and big man DELIVERED. It might be cold outside, but it’s hot up in this anthology that is chock full of some of the most titillating, delicious, and compelling taboo story tellers in the romance genre. So many authors I love- and so many I’ve enjoyed discovering.

Each story had its own forbidden charms- whether you’re looking for some guardian taboo, brother’s best friends or step brothers, teachers, and GASP- even some priests-

ARC review for The Attack Zone by B. Celeste:

The Attack Zone is a boyfriend’s older brother romance and the chemistry between Adelaide and Daire is absolutely explosive!! Their moments were my favorite and how they would express their emotions towards each other. From the moments with so much desire between them to the ones where they opened up, I enjoyed them all!!

I also enjoyed the holiday vibes in this book! It made everything feel cute. It also makes you want the characters to go through ha

This is a review on a short story in this book by Sara Cate called sweet blasphemy.
What can I say but Sara Cate has done it again with the forbidden relationship of a priest and a parishioner/ nun in training.
Starts off with a young 15 year old going into the church to find solice from abusive parents and a 30 year old priest taking her under his wing and protection. Go on 5 years and the young girl is a beautiful young lady who decided that she will devote her life to God if it means staying in

Dear lord! Father Roman!! I mean, he’s over the top possessive! This story was so dirty, in the best ways possible. Father Roman, that man! I loved how possessive he was of Cora… from the moment he later eyes in her. They were two kindred spirits destined to be in each others lives. Their friendship starts when Cora is 15, trying to escape an abusive house hold. They form a bond one Christmas Eve night and the rest is hi

Review of Sweet blasphemy by Sara Cate

If you don’t mind the extremely forbidden and/or are not attached to religion, you might enjoy this novella a lot.

Don’t expect too much, it’s erotica. Sexy, sometimes filthy, but at least with a lot of feelings and emotions. There’s a real connection developped between Cora and Roman. One that is already forbidden because of the age gap–15 years, and they meet when Cora is still a teenager, but no underage sex here–even if they weren’t two servants of God.

My review is for Always Been You by Q.B. Tyler. Hands down is she the QUEEN of taboo! Always Been You is steamy hot and full of emotion! This book is straight taboo from the beginning. There is angst and sweetness. I absolutely love the confidence from Gabrielle. She is so sure in what she wants. I love the protectiveness of James. These two are just fire and I’m left speechless because it was so good!

My review is for Unwrap Him by Nyla K.

This is a naughty little romance featuring a guardian and his adopted "son." James has raised Jesse after he lost his parents (and James' best friends), but Jesse isn't a little boy anymore. Jesse is grateful for James, but he's never called him dad, and he hasn't looked at him as a father figure in a few years now. Jesse is keeping his true feelings under wraps until an "incident" occurs on Christmas Eve which crosses a line that can't be uncrossed.

So, th

Unwrap Him - Nyla K - ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Nyla sure knows how to give us delicious taboo reads and a guardian/son romance is just that!

James has been Jesse’ guardian since he was nineteen and Jesse, two, when his best friends died, leaving him to his care.

James has never looked at Jesse in a romantic sense, however, Jesse has been crushing on him for years. In a twist of fate, things take a turn, when Jesse makes a subconscious move, taking things a little too far. When reality slams in, James backs awa

“God sent her to me.”

“Sweet Blasphemy,” by Sara Cate is part of the Twisted Christmas Anthology. It is a hot and forbidden age gap romance about a Priest and an “almost nun.”

They were connected when Cora ran into his church when she was 15, looking for an escape from the hell she lived in. Father Roman was everything she needed, but those thoughts turned into more. 5 years later, Cora is almost finished with her transition into becoming a nun, when she realizes it was Father Roman she truly had

Sweet blasphemy was brilliant. The forbidden taboo romance was brilliantly written. The age gap romance as well as the intense heat between the characters was great. I loved how this story grew and loved how it ended. I really would love to read a book about their future.

I've read two entries in the long awaited Twisted Christmas anthology.

First was Sweet Blasphemy by Sara Cate. This age-gap, taboo themed short story involved the forbidden relationship between a priest and a young girl training to become a nun. What started as a friendship between Father Roman and the sweet Cora soon becomes a powerful attraction neither one can stop. I loved their history and the sacrifices they make to be together, and their steamy scenes that will certainly melt your Kindle.

4.5 stars average rating THIS is the kind of Christmas antho I like!! The more taboo the better, the darker, the steamier, gimmie. Featuring men of God, age gaps, Daddy issues, delicious MM taboo desire as well as MFF sizzle, what more could you want on dark, dreary nights as the holidays approach? My favourite stories were Q.B. Tylers' Always Been You and new to me author Nyla K's Unwrap Him. Both I rated 5* I also really recommend the far too short Baby by more new to me authors S. Rena and B. ...more

Unwrap Him by Nyla K.
Nyla is like my golden author when it comes to amazing MM romances. She always aces in those and I won’t miss any of her books because the angst is simply phenomenal. Same was in this book! This one was a part of a christmas anthology and was a forbidden MM guardian romance. It was short and sexy and I devoured it in one go! Definitely one of the best reads of this antho!

This was exactly the short yet steamy read I needed for this upcoming winter season!

The writing was perfectly paced and easy to get into. The dual POV had me immediately invested in both characters, I enjoyed reading about them come into terms with the conflicting feelings and desire they felt for each other. The guardian/ward forbidden aspect added such a

QB is a queen when it comes to taboo and like always she didn’t disappoint! Gabrielle and James’ story was short yet so satisfying. This short story is a stepbrother, taboo with great chemistry. Definitely check out this collection of short stories if you are looking for some fun Christmas themed reads!

Taboo, twisted, corrupted, mis-matched and dirty minded are words that can describe this collection of 12 Christmas stories, but I can also add hot, steamy, spicy, fiery and oh so delicious. This collection has it all!! Twelve separate stories that will give the reader just enough sparkle to overcome the taboo. Featuring unholy bonds, age gaps, Daddy issues, MM debauchery as well as MFF sizzle. Each and every story packs a punch and puts the reader on the naughty list - but oh what a way to enjo ...more
