Reviews for Hey There, Delilah (A Taboo Love #1) and Unmasking Charlotte (A Taboo Love #2) by M.D. Saperstein and Andria Larg

Hey There, Delilah (A Taboo Love, #1)

Hey There, Delilah (A Taboo Love #1)


Hi, my name is Delilah Sampson, and I am a self proclaimed “frump girl.” My world came crashing down the day I walked in on my boyfriend having sex with my boss, rendering me single and jobless. A new job fell into my lap as the secretary of the gorgeous, rich, powerful, and mighty cocky controlling partner at Santino Law Firm. I spend my days trying to please a demanding boss, keeping my lustful thoughts to myself. Until one night, when my best friend drags me to a club, and I fall for a man whose true identity I will never know.

See, at Club Masquerade, everyone wears a mask and a nametag with a fake name. Also, on your nametag is a number that you are assigned when you come into the club, which is linked to an in-house messaging system; no one is permitted to speak, which ensures that identities are kept secret. I meet my lover every Saturday at 9 pm sharp. We text and email constantly when we are not together, and I have somehow fallen in love with him.

But, then there is Nick Santino. He is the partner that I can’t keep my eyes off. Unfortunately, the only reason he hired me is because he is not attracted to me and all my frump glory. Fortunately, for me, I am a kick ass secretary, so he keeps me around. Like many men in his position, Nick is used to getting what he wants, when he wants it; all without commitment, of course.

So when he finds a woman that he is both physically and emotionally attracted to, he finds himself in unchartered territory – love. And I can do nothing but be jealous from the sidelines – lusting for a man I can’t have, and loving a man I can’t know.

Hey there, Delilah is book 1 of the Taboo Love series, in which we tackle the boss/secretary relationship. Each book will be a stand alone with a HEA, but will have a few reoccurring characters.

Review by Gia: 
I loved  Hey There, Delilah.  Even though it says that it is book 1 of the Taboo Love series, it has a HEA.  The character are great and easy to connect with.  I loved interaction between Nick and Delilah.  Nick often great Delilah with "Hey There, Delilah know that, that is not the song she was named after. 
I loved the whole concept of this story.  Nick is Delilah's boos.  Delilah and Nick meet at Club Masquerade.  At the time they don't know they are hooking up with each other.   At Club Masquerade there is no talking, everyone communicates through an in-house messaging system. Nick and Delilah under their fake names and wearing masks met up every Saturday to hook up at the club.  Eventually they find out the real identity of each other but you'll have to read the story to find out what happens.  
This is a definite must read.

Unmasking Charlotte (A Taboo Love, #2)
Unmasking Charlotte (A Taboo Love #2)

Some say that I'm cynical. Some say that I'm flippant. But I am neither of those things. I am just a realist, who through an unfortunate turn of events, learned the hard way that everything is in fact black or white. At least for me it is, and always will be.

But then there is Calvin King. The thorn in my side, the pain in my ass. He is what some would call the perfect man - an imposing businessman, an even more impressive ladies’ man. Every man wants to be him and every woman just wants him. At least that is what I hear. I’m not admitting to anything beyond that.

What I do know and will concede to, is that my resolve is tested as soon as I meet Calvin. He ticks every box off my checklist - sexy as sin, tall, dark, rich, intelligent, and funny. My body craves just the thought of him. How can I possibly keep him at arm’s length when he is the only man I want and desire? And it doesn’t help that he kisses like a god and sets my body on fire. Crap! Don’t ask me how I know that, he doesn’t play fair.

Most importantly, I can’t let him unmask me, it’s my only defense. 

Review by Gia:
Unmaking Charlotte is Charlotte and Calvin's story.   We met Calvin and Charlotte in book one Hey There, Delilah.  Charlotte is Delilah's best friend and Calvin is Nick's best friend.  Unmasking Charlotte is a stand alone and you don't have to read Hey There, Delilah first.  Personally I liked Hey There, Delilah more then Unmasking Charlotte.  We get some Delilah and Nick in this story too, which is great!
Charlotte and Calvin have a lot of hot and steamy scenes.   Charlotte has some things from her past that come back to haunt her.  Unmasking Charlotte has funny parts but it is a little bit more of a heavy read because of Charlotte's past.  
Overall it is a good book and you won't be disappointed.

About M.D. Saperstein:
Hi! My name is M.D. Saperstein. I am currently a stay at home mom with my two gorgeous kids. I wasn't always a full time mom, though. After graduating from the University of Florida - Go Gators! - I attended law school at Stetson University. I spent the next 10 years practicing law. I also spent some time counseling mental health patients in an out patient psychiatric hospital. But, until having my own children, my most rewarding job by far was licensing families to receive abused and neglected foster children.
So, that brings us to today. In my spare time, while my children were napping, I started editing novels for other authors. The more I edited, the more ready I felt to write my own. I just needed a new and exciting story line. Once Hey There, Delilah was conceived, the ball starting rolling very quickly. I hooked up with fellow author Andria Large, and we decided to tackle it together. Best decision ever!
I spend most of my free time with my husband and children. But when I get some "me" time, I love to read. Mostly romance and erotica, but I don't discriminate - a good book is a good book, no matter the genre.

About Andria Large:
Andria is married and a stay at home mother with two crazy little girls and two psychotic cats. She doesn't go anywhere without her precious iPhone and a purse full of animal crackers. She used to be completely obsessed with the Backstreet Boys, but now is only mildly obsessed (still goes to every concert when they are in town). She loves cartoons and Disney movies, and can probably recite every line from Dumb and Dumber. Humor is a must in her life; otherwise, it would be completely boring. Pepsi is her weakness, along with anything chocolate. She can't sing to save her life, but she pretends she can when she is alone in her car with the music blasting so that she can't hear herself. And don't mess with her family because she will mess you up.
She loves to read Romance. Paranormal, Scottish, Military, Police, Firefighters, Athletes, Cowboys and M/M are her favorite. She is not so much a fan of YA, though. If you haven't been able to tell from reading her books, she likes - whether she is reading them or writing them - lots of hot steamy sex.
Andria loves her fans and is always willing to chat. She works hard on her books, does not get offended easily, and has a pretty thick skin when it comes to negativity toward her work. She welcomes constructive criticism because she feels that is how one betters themselves, by taking that constructive criticism and using it.
You can find Andria on Facebook!
And also on Goodreads!
