Little did I think that I got over captive romance novels in my teen days; I got this book, which is simply irresistible to read. Forbidden Fantasies by award-winning author Lauren E Rico is a dark romance thriller that would keep readers hooked till the end. However, they may find some snippets not so impressive.
The uniqueness of the story lies in the plot. The tale of passion, deception, and redemption set against an erotic thriller’s backdrop that grabs the readers and keeps them turning pages till the climax is attained.
Apart from the plot, the cover of the book is also appealing. It is often male sexuality talked about in an open milieu. However, Mrs. Lauren had tried to portray women’s fantasies, desire, and gushing passion in her work. Having said that, she also highlights the burdensome work in front of the protagonist. Therefore a delicate balance between the two has been struck.
Keeping the genre in mind, an adult erotic thriller, there is no room for predictability. Mrs. Lauren is always known for twists and turns in her novels, and this read was no different. Part one is left on a cliffhanger for part 2 to take charge. Meanwhile, many anticipations, predictions, the juggling of possibilities, and ifs and buts would keep part 1 fresh in the reader’s minds.
The author’s portrayal of so-called “forbidden fantasies” that might go against the community guidelines are really appreciable. The author uses different figures of speech and literally made a great effort to put forth emotions. Yes, it is passion and the nuance of tickling butterflies, anxiety, and fear put on paper. It’s a good recipe for some keystone emotions.
The book is purely content-driven and a worthy treat for especially female readers. Taking along on a tour of the world of fantasy, passion, love, lust, and all its forms. Although some chapters may tempt the readers to skip but mainly because of curiosity to go to the core instead of detailed redundant descriptions. Overall it’s a good read.
Forbidden Fantasies by Lauren E. Rico
It requires a lot of courage to write erotic sex passion without being obscene. I believe the author has done it in her style. The ethical dilemmas between reality check and untangle fantasies. The dark side of romance where love ends and lust takeovers has been beautifully crafted out with the underlying suspense and has clinched the audience. After part one, the readers would definitely look forward to part two. They would be driven to know the plot's logical end.
