Erin Thatcher figures there's no reason she can't have a hot fling with the wrong kind of guy while she waits for the right one, should he ever cross her path. So when she spies a magazine article about Men To Do before saying "I do," her imagination goes wild! Her sexy but reclusive neighbor is part of her nightly fantasies. Now it's time to see what he's like in the flesh....

Sebastian Gallo is a man obsessed. A bestselling author, he uses a pseudonym to ensure his privacy, keeping the real world out. But his gorgeous neighbor has consumed his thoughts—in his bed, in his shower—to the point where his writing is suffering. He just can't ignore the heat that exists between them whenever they meet. But can he risk revealing his true self?

About the Author

A native Texan, Alison sold one of the first of her over fifty published works live on the "Isn't It Romantic?" episode of CBS 48 Hours. The resulting book, CALL ME, was a Romantic Times finalist for Best First Series Book. Alison's book, A LONG, HARD RIDE, part of Harlequin's 60th Anniversary celebration, was nominated for an RT Reviewer's Choice Award for Best Harlequin Blaze of 2009. STRIPTEASE, a 2003 release from Harlequin Blaze and part of her popular gIRL-gEAR series, was also an RT Reviewer's Choice Award nominee.

Her 2005 Kensington Brava release, THE BEACH ALIBI, was a nominee for the national Quill Awards, sponsored by Reed Business Information. Alison is also the author of THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO WRITING EROTIC ROMANCE, and her 2009 novel, NO LIMITS, was a Cosmopolitan Magazine Red Hot Read. THE SECOND CHANCE CAFE, the first in her Hope Springs series from Amazon Montlake, was a 2014 RITA finalist in contemporary romance.

If there's a better career out there than writing, she doesn't want to know about it, as she's quite happy putting pen to paper in the backyard of her Texas home. That's where she lives with her petroleum geologist husband, three rescue dogs, and a colony of not-quite-feral cats, battling the heat each year to raise a bumper crop of tomatoes and jalapeno peppers.

The email messages that tied this into the other two books of the trilogy were distracting, I would have enjoyed it more without them.The two relationships show here were engaging, and the story amusing.The big point of conflict, that he didn't tell her he was a writer, didn't work for me. I have no idea why she got so cranky about it.

Erin Thatcher loves her work as the owner-manager of the successful pub Paddington¿s On Main in downtown Houston. However, though her career provides much satisfaction, Erin feels it is time to open up her personal life that she kept on hold. She wants a fling before she settles on Mr. Right whomever that might be. Every time she sees her loft neighbor or hears him playing the blues, she dreams of a night of sex. She decides her neighbor Sebastian Gallo is the perfect romantic romp; Erin pursues making her fantasy starring him real. Sebastian shares her torrid reverie, but shies away from his desires as he fears if he went under the covers with her, she would uncover his dark secret that he is the author of the Slater best-selling horror novels under the name Falco. Still, neither can resist the lure of a one night-stand which can blossom into a life time of happiness if both parties cease running form commitment. THE SWEET TABOO is a captivating contemporary romance that works on several levels. Obviously being a Blaze imprint means torrid scenes. Those are well written and fit nicely into the story line. However, what turns on Alison Kent¿s novel is the amusing yet serious banter between the lead protagonists and the electronic dialogue amidst the females of the ¿man to do¿ crowd that is part humor, part compassionate, and totally on top.
