A HUNGER FOR THE FORBIDDEN
A HUNGER FOR THE FORBIDDEN (4.5) by Maisey Yates: Alessia Battaglia’s only option is running when she finds herself marrying the wrong Corretti. Matteo Corretti is relieved that Alessia is not marrying his cousin, but he is shocked to learn the consequence of their illicit night. He is afraid his touch will mar the only woman who makes him lose control and brings light to his darkness. When their facades fall away, will they find love and passion or just more emptiness? Yates ends the Corretti dynastic series with an angst-filled, pulse-pounding page-turner. Her narrative reveals the beauty and the ugliness of this imperialistic family inside their gilded cages. Her heroine’s sometimes-fatalistic, yet optimistic outlook is the perfect foil for her brooding hero — and their lovemaking blazes.
