He’s the arrogant Manhattan
realtor with billboards advertising his six-pack more than his expertise in
negotiations.I’m the competing broker who stupidly moved across the hall
from his office.
From day one, I’ve been his sworn enemy. Okay, so I might
have accidentally stolen one of his clients. Well, is it stealing if the client
comes to me?
Even our vicious banter and loathing gazes can’t hide the
chemistry between us. Who can blame me? He has enough charisma to make every
hot-blooded woman in the city melt with a single word.
Just when I think a mutual respect could be born between us,
the biggest developer in the city offers us an opportunity that pits us against
Time to forget Carmelo Mancini’s dreamy eyes and tight abs.
Just seeing that the author is Piper Rayne would be enough to one click and buy, but for everyone else I guess we will talk about the book a little.
Once again we see the second Mancini brother in this series and he is sex on a stick and charm that drips off the pages.
Carmelo Mancini is this hotshot sexy realtor broker and his enemy is Bella the FSBO(for sale by owner) broker who seems to be giving our boy Carm a hassle and she just moved her office right next to his……cue sexual tension and rivalry. They both are put on with the same client to try and sells a condo on the floor they were given. With just a little competition, sexual tension, and alpha male, what could happen?
The banter between these two is exhilarating and sweet. Bella is not a pushover but is a great strong character. I can’t say enough how personable and relatable these characters are. They are very homey and warming. This is an excellent read. The last of the Mancini brothers has been quite mysterious so I cant wait to see what’s in store. Thanks for another great read!!

A little about us… We both have kindle’s full of one-clickable books. We’re both married to husbands who drive us to drink. We’re both chauffeurs to our kids. Most of all, we love hot heroes and quirky heroines that make us laugh, and we hope you do, too.
Blackballed from my job.
Moved back to my hometown with my tail between my legs and family issues crushing my back.
Slinging drinks in a dive bar.
Yes, the past year has been hell. So when a man who’s temptation wrapped in golden skin and sin offers me one night of no-holds barred, dirty sex, I’m all in. I deserve it.
But now those few unforgettable hours have me facing blackmail from my own father: He’ll pay for my mom’s medical bills, but only if I never again touch the man who has quickly become my obsession.
Because the man? My obsession?
He’s my stepbrother.
Each book in the Sweetest Taboo series is STANDALONE:
* Sin and Ink by Naima Simone
* Passion and Ink by Naima Simone
* The Scandalous Diary of Lily Layton by Stacy Reid
The cover is hot I mean who doesn’t like a delicious body with art tattooed everywhere. The story itself is a bit taboo and shows you that life and love can be messy at times.
“Ro” first meets Jay at the dive bar that she works at and at first sight he leaves her speechless! Jay is having a rough week but is taken by her at first glance. One night is all they are giving in to until “Ro” has to go to her dad’s house who she has not spoken to in forever. Low and behold she runs into her stepbrother, and it’s her one night stand Jay! they find out that Jay is a nickname for Jude and Ro is short for Rowena her middle name.
The same man that gave her so much pleasure! They both feel the pull is there but they are ‘family’ now and it has to remain platonic. There were a lot of sexy scenes and great chemistry throughout and it was great to meet the crew from the Hard Knox tattoo shop! Great characters and really enjoyed the story.
First comes love. Then comes marriage. Then comes baby in a baby carriage. Just not necessarily in that order. . . .
Braxton: I should probably be dead or in jail right now. Instead, thanks to some tough love, I worked my ass off and now I own a string of tattoo parlors throughout the Pacific Northwest. And yet the one thing I’ve always wanted—a family—still seems out of reach. When my best friend gets married, I’m just hoping to blow off some steam with the super-hot maid of honor. But after Cara Thompson tracks me down to tell me she’s pregnant, she’s more surprised than I am when I tell her I’m all in.
Cara: For the first time in my life, I’m living for myself—not for my parents and their ridiculous expectations. I gave up on my MBA, dropped out of the Ivy League, and moved to Portland to pursue my dream of becoming an artist. And what’s the first thing I do? Get knocked up. For a tatted-up sex god, Braxton Henley seems way too eager to “be there for me.” Is this guy serious? Maybe. He sure is patient. Because he won’t back down until I admit what I know in my heart: that our one night standmight’ve led me to the one.

Welllllll…….what’s a night of recklessness without a small surprise? Yep Cara is preggers! This story follows two people who now are going to raise a baby together and they now need to get to know each other. Braxton is a sexy, tatted and an alpha so what more could you mant? Cara is insecure at times but I loved the relationship that blossomed between these two! This was a win for me all the way!
Only because the cover model does not match Braxton
