Title: Forbidden (House of Sin #1)
Author: Elisabeth Naughton
This isn't the first book I have read by Elisabeth Naughton.
Forbidden is the first in a 3 book series that follow two main characters into a dark world or possession, obsession and Sex.
Trust me I understand the series is called House of Sin but still the story disappeared and is replaced with graphic sex scenes readers will either flip though or enjoy.
Before anyone picks up the book they are warned in a blurb "**WARNING!**
This book is very sexy, very dark, and very addictive! Contains consensual kink and a dark and dominant hero with a dangerous secret. This is a big story that can't be told in only one book so there is a cliffhanger"
The story is interesting but the erotic sex scene take away from whatever story you might to be reading to the point readers will be flipping though at least 75% of the book to find the story and the dark hidden secret.
I was disappointed not with the sex scenes while there were many and readers will need a glass of water and a window open. The main story didn't pick up until the last 10% of the book. We were give two points of view and yet we didn't learn anything about the family until the last part of the book which ends in a cliff hanger.
I wish the story not the sex was the main focus of Forbidden. That being said the writing is well done and everything is paced well throughout the book
Thank you to the author, publisher and Netgalley for the advance copy of Forbidden

he has no idea what lurks behind the forbidden doors of the House of Sin...
He is temptation. Forbidden fruit. A craving I can’t seem to resist.
I went after him in search of answers, certain he had blood on his hands. Now I’ve fallen prey to his seductive looks and commanding charisma.
I know he is a threat. He's entwined in a dangerous world I don't understand. But even that doesn’t stop me from aching for his touch, for the taste of his wicked lips.
Before I can truly surrender to the fire smoldering between us, I need to know more. I have to see behind the doors he keeps firmly locked.
I need to discover what he's hiding in the shadowy world known as the House of Sin...

About The Author:
Before topping multiple bestseller lists—including those of the New York Times, USA Today, and the Wall Street Journal—award winning author Elisabeth Naughton taught middle school science. A voracious reader, she soon discovered she had a knack for creating stories with a chemistry of their own. The spark turned into a flame, and Elisabeth now writes full-time.
Though primarily known for her romantic suspense work, Elisabeth has penned over thirty books and continues to write in multiple genres, including paranormal romance and contemporary romance. Her books have been translated into numerous languages and have earned several award nominations, including three prestigious RITA® nominations from Romance Writers of America. In 2017, REPRESSED, the first book in her Deadly Secrets series, won the RITA® for best romantic suspense.
Elisabeth's work has been praised by the Chicago Tribune as being filled with "deadly intrigue, high adrenaline action, and scorchingly hot passion.” Kirkus calls her "a writer talented enough at weaving a yarn to get her readers ensnared in it.” When not dreaming up new stories, Elisabeth can be found spending time with her husband and three children in their western Oregon home, wrangling two cats, or chasing after one very rambunctious Dalmatian.
