It started as as a simple search for a landscape designer…I wanted a beautiful backyard for my new home and my neighbors suggested I look into ward landscaping and design. The owner had no pictures of himself on his website, just a portfolio of nice outdoor sitting areas, pools, and vibrant gardens that I’d always dreamed of having.

Of course I hired him.I expected to meet an average guy, but Mr. Marcel Ward is far from your average man. He’s handsome, and well-built, and his smile – though a rare trait – is truly infectious. He’s every woman’s dream – a handsome, older man who doesn’t mind getting down and dirty to create something beautiful all because of his passion for it. Unfortunately that lucky woman can’t be me. Although Mr. Ward tests my limits, quickens my breath, and makes my heart skip a beat when he’s around, I’ve made a promise to devote myself to my husband.

So why am I falling for a man I know I can’t have?


Shanora Williams does taboo so so good. Taboo is one of my jams and this was oh so good! Like finger-licking good! Everything was spot on:

✔️Insane chemistry

✔️Red-hot passion


✔️HOT smexy goodness

Gabby and Marcel’s story was passionate, emotional, and at time frustrating. Their connection is forbidden yet entirely undeniable. We go from desire to passion to love at an incredibly maddening pace and yet I loved every second of it. Plus that ending. Oh. My. Gawd. The entire book leads up to that climax and holy crap I need the next book IMMEDIATELY!

Narration by Aiden Snow and Lacy Laurel was damn near perfect! Aiden Snow had me melting like popsicle on the Fourth of July with that raspy tone of his. #yum Both narrators brought every single emotion and feeling to life. I was swimming in a sea of feels. I have no idea who was responsible for casting these two narrators, but I want to send them flowers. Now seriously, where’s the next book? 5 stars.
