This review was actually more difficult for me to write than for a less than stellar book. Not because the book is bad, quite the opposite. But because the book is wonderful and I am a fan of Ms. Bradley’s writing.
Forbidden Fruit is the story of Mia Rose Curry who teaches the very popular alternative sexuality class once a semester at San Francisco State. It’s a safe way to indulge in her own secret fantasies and fetishes. However this semester’s class begins differently when she feels an instant attraction to one of her students, Jagger James. Despite her attraction to Jagger, due to ethical concerns, Mia becomes aloof and standoffish. But Jagger isn’t willing to give up that easily. Will Mia given in to Jagger’s advances? Or will she hold out and remain content in her life as it stands?
And mixed in with Jagger and Mia’s story is the romance of Gideon and Karalee that heats up the just as much. I fell in love with both couples as I read Forbidden Fruit. Jagger is tender and caring with Mia and helps her unfurl and explore her hidden fetishes.
As always, Ms Bradley does not disappoint with the erotic scenes. There is exhibitionism, anal sex and food sex so the kink factor is high. With each new novel, Ms Bradley gets better and better. With rich descriptions and beautifully human characters, readers will be transported into the pages of Forbidden Fruit. This highly sensual story is richly detailed, erotic and brilliantly written. Forbidden Fruit will leave you hungry for more. One word of caution – the erotic scenes are intense so you may have to take a break in between, I know I did.
Book Blurb for Forbidden Fruit
Sometimes the forbidden…
One taste is never enough.
For university professor Mia Rose Curry, it was all academic: her course in alternate sexuality was a safe, socially-acceptable way for her to talk about the things she desires most—but has never let herself experience. And while students crammed into her class to learn about fetishes, bondage, voyeurism and much more, Mia kept her own raging desires, and her most private fantasies, carefully under wraps…until one man dares to make her secret passions a brazen reality.
Jagger James is everything Mia wants and everything taboo: he’s gorgeous, daring…and a student. Yet Mia can’t help imagining his hands, his lips, his skin...all the while drawing closer and closer to this forbidden fruit. She soon discovers how much Jagger wants her, demanding she abandon every inhibition with him. Now, they are about to take a dangerous step, tempting each other’s flesh, savoring every touch and breaking every rule—knowing that this dazzling, sensual feast is only a taste of something more…
