Sweetest Taboo by J. Kenner

All eyes are on us...and there’s nowhere to run.

Everyone has their own ideas about Dallas Sykes: He’s a reckless billionaire, a devilish playboy, a man who gets whatever he wants the minute he wants it. But I know the real Dallas behind the money, bravado, and power—and he’s completely, blissfully mine.

We carefully guarded our secrets, and in each other’s arms we sought refuge from our dark past. Our pain became our pleasure, our control within the chaos. But we could only hide from the truth for so long.

Now we’ve let loose our inhibitions and are ready to face the future. And no matter what people think or say, coming clean is its own sweet reward.

Sweetest Taboo is intended for mature audiences.

This was the conclusion to this series. I think that it was well thought out, planned and, despite being a little predictable, I enjoyed the story.

Jane is still trying to figure out how to be the stepdaughter and reconcile her feelings for Dallas. They are ready to show the world that they can be happy, that their "marriage" relationship – which makes their relationship taboo – won't keep them apart.

The story unravels in a manner that is methodical and well planned. I really liked how they tied Colin back in to the story and made him both hero and villain. I think that his dual role helped shape the story in a more realistic manner. Kids should always trump lovers, but that's not always the case.

I also liked how Dallas was able to put his feelings about his family aside – he said what he truly felt and was open and honest. It might not have been the most pleasant of things to talk about, but it was finally out there.

Adele, Colin, Dallas, and Jane had this strange, twisted relationship that all came to a head and in the end, things were resolved in a successful and almost cathartic manner.

Kenner did a great job at tying up loose ends, answering questions, and generally making the ending a feel good one.

This is a great conclusion to an excellent series. My best advice to you is make sure you read all three in a row now that they are out. I could not have waited until the next book came out, because I was gripped – but I plan on reading them one after the other when I get the time, as it has been a few months and I have read many books in between. All the same, it was great – but as a whole it would have been even better.

Once I had got back into the storyline and remembered all the people who made my skin crawl with suspicion, I raced through this desperate to get the happily ever after that any caring reader would know that Dallas and Jane deserve. Ms. Kenner knows how to make her readers panic! That said, she is also a mistress of the hot, steamy, and seductive. Unless you have excellent air-con, read this in private, where fanning yourself will not be noticed! Their solution when together and to de-stress is to get super naughty.

Great ending to a great series – hopefully we will see them again in a crossover – another feature of Ms. Kenner's writing which I enjoy!
