They were always taught that family was about more than blood, but when step-siblings Sophie Ellis and Logan Castle meet for the first time, their attraction is instantaneous. Forever trying to keep each other at arm's length, they discover that sometimes the best laid plans fall apart, when lovers fall together.

He's everything she's ever fantasized about, and everything she can never have.
She's all he's ever wanted, but never hoped to have.
Trying so hard to be his stepsister, she can't shake the attraction she feels.
He decides it's best to leave, but when circumstances see them reunite, and he discovers their initial attraction is still there after all the intervening years, he can't help himself. He has to have her.
Running scared, she cuts all ties.
Left behind, his bitterness grows.
When again circumstances force her back into his arms, her past comes back to haunt her.
He's determined to make her pay for leaving him.

Desires are forbidden. Loyalties are tested. Hearts are broken. And in the end, is love strong enough to conquer all?


Review by Gia:

This book takes on the topic of step siblings who are attracted to each other.  At first when we meet Sophie she is sixteen and Logan in eighteen.  My first impression was that she was to young but no worries nothing really happens while she is underage.  Logan is attracted to her and she is attracted to him.  The whole step brother thing has prevented Sophie from taking anything further.  Some tragic things happen and it puts the whole attraction to each other aside. 

When they finally overcome things and let their passions take over, Sophie is upset and she runs.  Their paths cross again.  Sophie might be ready to except Logan now.  But Logan is not the same person.  Logan is hard and has is heart very guarded. 

The whole step sibling thing didn't really bother me.    Logan and Sophie are great characters.   They struggle with how to work through their feels and have a relationship.  It's listed as book one in the Taboo series and I really hoping that we get more Logan and Sophie.

About the Author
Mandy Lou Dowson was born and raised in a small town in Ireland, in 1983. Family is a huge deal to Mandy. She has three wonderful children, and a Siberian Husky who only does what she’s told if there’s something in it for her.
When she's not writing, reading, or plotting her next book - or, you know, world domination -, she likes to relax with a few glasses of wine and some karaoke. She has a keen interest in special effects make-up and is part of a dramatical society which puts on one show and one concert each year.
Mandy started reading at quite a young age and her appetite for the written word has only increased with time. It would not be at all surprising to find her reading anything and everything from shampoo bottles to Edgar Allan Poe.
She is the author of two distinct series of books. The Moon Bound series, which is in the Paranormal Romance genre, and is gathering rave reviews, and the Taboo series, which is Contemporary with a hint of the forbidden.
