More About This Book

Overview

“With the passion of Zane and the gut-wrenching emotion of Noire, Risqué takes the erotic-fiction scene by storm.”
–Danielle Santiago, author of Little Ghetto Girl


The sweetest taboo–if you want it, come get it. . . .

Yuri and Drae are keeping secrets–each caught up in her own whirlwind of scandal and passion. They swore as children that they would never conceal anything from each other, but now, as adults, they realize that not everything is meant to be told. Yuri is married to Jeff, a man she never really loved yet settled for. During a trip to the Caribbean she begins a torrid affair with her longtime friend Britt, a rising reggae star she has always secretly desired. Drae, a high school guidance counselor, is married to Hassan, a sadistic porn king who makes her “audition” his actors and actresses while he gets off on the wild, and not always consensual, sex. As Yuri and Drae struggle to keep up their double lives, their clandestine cover-ups come to light–and the consequences are more than either of them bargained for.

“A sexy drama that will have you lusting for more.”
–Anna J., author of The Aftermath

“Nothing is off-limits in Risqué’s tantalizing and intensely stimulating debut novel. Prepare to be entertained, enthralled, and scandalized!”
–Crystal Lacey Winslow, author of The Criss Cross

“Rough, raw, and riveting! Passionate, fiery prose blazes across every page. Risqué captivates the reader from the very beginning and never lets go.”
–Allison Hobbs, author of A Bona Fide Gold Digger

    OMG - I couldn't put it down

    I read this book at the suggestion of a friend who had just finished it. She lent me her copy. The book was amazing. I couldn't put it down I even found myself sneaking to read it at work because I just had to know what was going to happen next. I loved Drae and Yuri and felt like we were apart of their lives with the details that were given and the interaction that took place. Good read espeically for a rainy day or a very cold day where you have to stay inside. I finished the book in 2 days. I plan on buying the next book and hope that it is as good.

    OMG!!! Another TOP 10 Best Seller, in my book!

    Congratulations to the new rookie author Risque! Wow! What an awesome start for you! As far as I am concerned, Zane is so out of the picture! I absolutely love a good love story and a book with a happy ending. This books has that and much, much more! I love the characters Yuri and Britt and Drae and Naz. They are so sexy! Britt and the way he calls Yuri 'my man'....That was so cute. The sex scenes were off the hook! I can't get over the scene when Britt came to Yuri and Jeff's apartment....Wow, he was one bold brotha! I read this book twice before I could put it down. It is definitely on my top 10 list which consist of the following books in no particular order: Every Thug Needs a Lady, Fly on the Wall, Torn, White Lines, Thug Matrimony, Going Broke, Dead Broke, Hold U Down, Black, Flipside of the Game.....The Sweetest Taboo is somewhere at the top! I loved it.

    BOOK OF THE YEAR!

    OMG! This is the best book that I have read this year!! I have never heard of the author but decided to take a chance on this book and I'm glad I did. I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN! I purchased it on a Saturday afternoon and on Sunday night I was finished, and I have five children. :-) There was never a boring moment. I wish that I could meet the author and just shake their hand.

    A reviewer

    Risque makes her entrance into the world of erotica with a Thunderous Bang! This book provides the reader with a combination of a good plot, humor, great sex scenes, and lots of drama. This book is such a great way to start the New Year. Take this read with Risque and follow the lives of two cousins as they venture thur hurt, love, lust, and the finding of themselves. This book is one that is definitely made for the big screen. This author is quite talented and deserves more than the five stars alloted. Don't sleep on Risque....for you might wake up to something you don't quite know how to handle. This is worth the read. Kudos to you, Risque, for ending '07 and bringing in '08 with a GREAT PAGE TURNING READ.

    Must Read

    This book was absolutely great. Risque did a wonderful job. Nae Nae was a trip. Yuri and Drae went through so much drama but they overcame all of it.

    Enthralling

    This book had me from the first page. I could not put it down. I read this book in one day and reread it. This book made me laugh and cry. I loved Brit and Nas. Their sex appeal came straight through the book. Yuri and Brit seemed like such real people that go through a lot before they realize how much someone means to them. Dre was a compelling character as well that you wanted to shake some sense in to. Na Na was just too hystierical. Loved it. You won't be disappointed. Zane watch out.
