Overview

Isabel Cruz was fifteen years old when she met Tom Stevens. She was 15 when they started dating, and 16 when she lost her virginity to him. By the time she turned 18 and went to college, everything had fallen apart. This hadn’t been an ordinary love, though. Not a love between two dear friends, or even high school sweethearts. This had been the most taboo sort of love there was: a relationship between a student and her teacher.

Isabel started her high school career as a normal student, but set her sights on Tom Stevens as soon as she met him, and pursued him with an intense – and sometimes reckless – fascination. When he finally approached her after swim practice and told her that he shared her feelings, it was the start of a forbidden and dangerous relationship.

Sweetest Taboo is Book #1 of the Sweetest Taboo Series, a controversial and edgy contemporary *mature* YA romance series.

RT Reviews - Jaime Geraldi
"This controversial teacher/student love story is a success. The narration is impeccable, like a friend telling you the story. It’s a gripping account of an atypical, bittersweet romance."
