He closed the gap, his big hand moving to gently rest on her denim encased thigh. “I prefer more mature women. Women who know what they want and how to get it.”
To all the rest of the world, Elizabeth Clarke had it all.
A successful husband. A beautiful home. And now a son off to university.
She is a perfect housewife with the perfect life.
It’s a lie.
Her husband is a lying, drinking philanderer who hates her as much as she loathes him. Her home is beautiful, but empty, nothing more than a gilded cage to keep her trapped in a world she never wanted.
That is, until he came back to town.
Her son’s best friend.
He’s hot, young, and so forbidden.
Elizabeth knows she should stay away, but when the devil comes knocking on her door in the middle of the night, what’s a poor neglected trophy wife to do?
Forbidden Desire is a super hot older woman / younger man romance. It has a HEA, NO Cliffhanger and all the steam you have come to expect from the Lord of Lust.
Sizzling age-gap night of passion for middle-aged married Elizabeth and a man young enough to be her son ~ A fantasy night for both of them and who knows, a game changer in the making? This is definitely a short story at only about fifty pages but it does pack a punch as Elizabeth succumbs to the temptation of putting herself first instead of being put second in the lives of her family. Finally seen by Hugh, and though conflicted, she does succumb and it may ultimately help her step out in more ways than one. She may take on something new in her life besides the young stud that savors her for a night and in so doing…explore more about her self and her creativity than she would have otherwise.
* Could I see myself in Elizabeth’s shoes? Maybe…in a fantasy…and that is just what this seems to be.
* I wondered if perhaps Elizabeth would find a way to dump her less than loving spouse and move on or if she would just savor the one night and not rock the boat
* I was reminded of the Movie with Dustin Hoffman and Mrs. Robinson
* I wondered how common it is to have this sort of relationship/one-off in real life
* I thought about guilt…and if either would feel it or what might make one feel or not feel guilt in such a situation
* I realized that I am almost 70 and this story steamed up my glasses 😉
* I enjoyed this and think that if you are looking for a short steamy age-gap story…this might fill the bill.
Thank you to the author for the copy – this is my honest review.

This book is a little different with Elizabeth being a cougar and Hugh being her sons bestfriend. Age is only a number and Hugh goes for what he wants and it’s Elizabeth. The Lord Of Lust had once again written a sexy read; Age gap with the woman being the cougar isn’t my normal read but I couldn’t put it down! Must read Sexy and will get you hot!

This is a quick read but what an enjoyable experience. Very well written characters that experience so much in too short a story. It’s a good thing there are more books in L.M’s arsenal. So much fun to look forward too.

Older underappreciated woman and a chance meeting with her son’s best friend make for some hot and steamy moments in this quick read. L.M. Mountford is a word master that puts you in the moment!
Patty Mele –
I have to say that this book had everything that the readers that love this author is famous for. It had a strong hero and herorine(?) with the storyline so well researched and written it was as if the reader is in the scenes themselves in my opinion. The character built up was so good it was like fire in between the pages and this is my opinon. I receieved this book for free thru an ARC, Avanced Review Copy, with an honest review freely given.
Julia TeamStarlite –
A quick read, but a sexy, hot, steamy shortstory.
Elizabeth gave in to her desire, because: why not?
Yes, he is much younger and her son’s best friend – but the desire is mutual.

Elizabeth is a lonely woman who is feeling loss with her son leaving for university. She visits her best friend only to discover she’s gone on a holiday with her husband, leaving their son Hugh home alone. Hugh is a lawyer and has always been attracted to Elizabeth. Hugh cannot resist his attraction to her and their steamy relationship develops.
This is a very HAWTTT🔥 storyline! I was immediately hooked into the story and how the relationship between them develops so quickly. There’s steamy, passionate scenes that are sensually written. Told from dual POVs reveals intimately their thoughts, feelings and emotions as they explore their attention to each other. There’s a twist at the end!

I totally enjoyed this book. Elizabeth was a lonely, neglected wife whose just left for college. Her husband was gone all the time a paid her little attention. She went to visit her friend, who ended up being out of town, but ran into her friend’s son, who was also her son’s best friend. Things get hot and steamy between the two. This was a quick read that I didn’t want to put down. I hope we get more about these characters in the future because it seemed like they both wanted more from each other in the future. Can’t wait to read the next story in this series. I received a review copy of this story from the author and am leaving a voluntary honest review.

This story is so hot. Older woman and younger man is as old as time but this one is extremely hot, hot. The writing is so steamy you get caught up in it. It is a revelation for the older woman and fulfills her needs and fantasies. I received an arc of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Jen ODonnell –
This book is sexy, hot and amazing. I loved it from the beginning. An older woman and younger man. Elizabeth and Hugh, their heat just burns off of the pages. So good, I didn’t want it to end. “OH MY!”. You will need a cooldown after reading Forbidden Desires. I cannot recommend this enough. A must, must, must scorching read.
Beth Blandin –
I am a big fan of L. M. Mountford books. However, I did have a hard time getting into this book. The Prologue and Chapter One were confusing to me. From the confusion, it did come together but jumped straight into a sex part which basically went to the end of the novella. I felt the plot on this book was not really put together. THere seems to be a few holes and jumps. The erotica part was good as always with L.M. Mountford.
Vinessa Donatelli Wooten –
She is feeling the empty next syndrome, instead of finding a suitable hobby she picks up a young man and..
So this is full of taboo and illicit content. Saying that it is a welcome distraction from what’s happening around the world.
Kristin Scaggs –
Forbidden Desire: Taken by her Son’s Best Friend is a hot and steamy book written by LM Mountford. From the very beginning of the book, my attention was captivated. This book is about a steamy relationship between a cougar, who feels neglected, and her son’s best friend that makes her feel alive again. LM Mountford has my attention and I can’t wait to read more books by this author.
