Review: Forbidden Fantasies by Jodie Griffin (18+)

Forbidden Fantasies
Published March 2012

After fifteen years of marriage, Jessica Meyers's sex life is, well, a little predictable. Her handsome husband turns her on, but missionary style once or twice a week? It just can't compare to the hot new world she discovers in the pages of erotic romances. Her fantasies fuel the fire of her desire, adding a new spark to her and Alex's lovemaking. But Jess is afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed—and her secrets start coming between them.

State trooper Alex Meyers is a master at uncovering the truth—except when it comes to his sweet, shy wife. She's clearly keeping something from him. An affair? She wants out? When he finally confronts Jess, he's shocked to learn she wants to turn her forbidden fantasies into nightly realities. But when he takes her to a unique B and B—Bondage and Breakfast—catering to couples and multiples, Alex is about to find out just how far he'll go.

This was a good book to read quickly. I love how it is a real couple with real problems. We all have real lives, not the fantasy ones we read about. The love in a marriage is a powerful thing and sometimes the road we travel together is not an easy one, but with love and trust you can work through anything.

Jessica has discovered erotic romance books and really begins to fantasize about what she is reading while making love to her husband. This puts her at a distance with him after sex, because she feels dirty and like she is cheating for having such thoughts. Afraid to tell her husband what she really wants in bed, she goes on hiding it, but this only causes more of a distance between them.

Alex loves his wife so much, but he knows she is hiding something and is determined to find out what it is. He loves the wanton woman she has become lately and thinks the sex in that last few months is the best they have ever had, but it is at the cost of her emotional withdrawal. Alex cannot go on like this anymore so he decides to face the problem head on and just ask his wife.

As Jessica finally opens up and tells Alex everything, he is there to support her and her ideas. Letting her know he too has fantasies, in fact everyone does. He even gives in to some of her ideas to show her it is ok to want things and even more ok to ask for them. Some of the sex scenes were really HOT! I think the lesson learned is you should never be afraid to ask for something if you want it bad enough, you never know, you just might get your fantasy fulfilled!

3.5 out of 5 stars

  1. That is a good point to take from the book- don't be afraid to communicate. This sounds like it might be a good read.
