    I was asked to beta read this book and being a huge Kathryn Kelly fan, I was honored. There is some taboo element to this book in my opinion due to the heroine's age. That's my disclaimer and Kathryn Kelly and I have discussed this.

    Phoenix Rising is a very popular rock band. Like many rock bands, not all the members of the band get along. This story is the beginning of the love affair of Sloane Mason and Georgie McCall. Georgie is a huge fan of the band and Sloane in particular. Their first meeting, Sloane notices how young she is but also how beautiful. When he finds out that she's sixteen, he knows that his fascination and attraction can go no further. But it does. The second time he sees her, he's leaving her home after having just had sex with her mother while her father watched. Sloane lives for debauchery in all it's forms. He's a former addict who's living drug free for the moment.

    Georgie is a little girl lost. She's in a kind of relationship with her brother's best friend who trades drugs with her for oral sex. She's ignored and down right neglected by her pervert parents. Her dad spends money on her but no time with her. He's too busy screwing younger women with his wife. Her mother is a selfish woman jealous of her daughter's age and beauty. So Georgie looks for attention where she can find it and anything to numb the pain of her existence. In Sloane, she sees her savior of sorts. Falling in love with him was easy. Their life would be hell if they acted on their mutual attraction.

    This is a very dark story. You are swimming in a world full of privilege, debauchery, drug abuse and child abuse. There were difficult moments for me because of this abuse. Sloane is a first class man-whore with just a touch of conscience. Georgie is a very troubled girl looking for love in all the wrong places and unfortunately finding it. Your heart breaks for her over and over. Despite all the things in this book that raised my "ick" factor, I was hooked. I had to find out where it was going and what would happen when I got there. There is a second book and yes, this one ends on a cliffhanger but I'm all in now. I have to know if there will be an HEA for Sloane or Georgie and will it be with them together? Kathryn Kelly has hooked me to another one of her series and I'm thrilled about it!

    Book given in exchange for an honest review via the author.

    This was a pretty good read! Super hot with great character development! The story is about Sloane, an arrogant, intense, 25 yr old man-whore rock-star, and his biggest fan Georgie, a fucked-up, destructive, abnormal young girl. Georgie is a virgin, drug addict, 16 yr old beautiful girl who has the hots for Sloane.

    The taboo stuff going on between them made me often feel uneasy, but this book definitely is the perfect read for anyone who loves the forbidden fruit. The build up and anticipation are what gained me over. Morality, ethics and self control are being questioned almost throughout the whole book. The sexual tension between Sloane and Georgie is intense, hot, sensual, often dark and twisted. Be prepared as there are multi-layered taboo themes and plenty of ups and downs. This book is an absolute emotional roller-coaster and there are plenty of can't put it down moments. What I didn't like was its abrupt ending. I need book two now!!

    4 "Taboo Love" Stars! Holy hell! Kathryn Kelly never ceases to amaze me. I became a fan of Kathryn Kelly's writing when she opened my eyes to a whole new MC world with the incredibly fresh, raw and gritty feel of her Death Dwellers MC series. When I found out she was launching a new, non-MC series, I couldn't wait to see how her style would translate outside of the MC world. Combining her signature, dark style which tends to tow the line with society's mores to deliver a highly erotic read with a decadent feel, Ms. Kelly brings to life the debauched life of the rich and famous where sex, drugs and excess prevails.

    Please note that this book is not for everyone. If drug abuse, teenage sex, or multi-parter sex (M/F/M) offends you, or if you are just generally offended by nontraditional romances, then this book is not for you. If you have an open mind and are willing to venture into a world where anything goes, then by all means, grab a copy, and give it a whirl, as Inferno may be the next book to rock your world!

    Sloane, the lead singer of Phoenix Rising, may have had his fair share of family drama combined with a dark past, but you wouldn't know it from the way he seems to be on top of the world. Leading a life where taking a new partner, or two, to his bed each night, owning the biggest and most glamorous mansions and cars that money can buy and otherwise generally living life to the max is the norm; Sloane is no doubt an idol in the eyes of many. Then he arrives in Houston to record a new album, and a sixteen year-old girl, changes his destiny in a flash.

    He came to her mansion that night to fulfill an obligation. Sleep with a beautiful, forty-five year-old socialite, while her husband, who was also present, entertains his own desires. What he didn't count on was stumbling on his way out upon their daughter, a broken, girl of only sixteen years of age--who he had previously met and had been deceived to believe was eighteen-- on a sure fire path of destruction via drugs and sex. Georgie's sole "friend" in the world is her brother's best friend, a man in his mid-twenties--who functions as her drug dealer and demands sex for payment. Seeing in her a younger version of himself, and having failed to save another before, Sloane couldn't help but want to spare Georgie from what would no doubt come. Clearly her parents were too self-absorbed to see or care where Georgie was no doubt headed. But try though he might, the one person Sloane can't save Georgie from, is himself, even if it just might cost him his freedom, career and just about everything.

    In a strange world, of hidden agendas and cruel twists of fate, Sloane and Georgie may just be the only two people who can save each other, but in a life where the stakes are high will they succeed or just end up destroying the other in an inferno of flames?

    Be prepared to have your conscience challenged. Inferno is not for the faint of heart, and just when you think redemption is possible, the story will take another turn causing you to question whether a HEA is possible or even morally desirable. Additionally, please note that this book ends in a cliffhanger, so if you want to learn the whole truth of Sloane's and Georgie's story you will need to commit to reading Book 2 of the Phoenix Rising Rock Band Series. I, for one, can't wait to see in what direction Ms. Kelly will take this guilty pleasure of a story to next!

    ☆ I received an RC from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! ☆

    falls into that forbidden love category with a taboo twist on it.

    It was sexy, it was gritty and provocative, and it was scandalous.

    Be prepared for when you venture into this world, that you're read for one hell of a ride as this one was pretty at times tough to digest yet intriguingly scrumptious.

    Can't wait for bk2!

    Inferno is fifty shades of messed up and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it. I have so many mixed feelings about this some are good some are bad and some are just all over the place. The other part of me is screaming “WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?” while the other is saying “I LOVE IT!”.

    Our Story

    Inferno is definitely a taboo romance, a sixteen year old with a twenty five year old. It actually didn’t bother me like I thought it would.

    Inferno is fifty shades of messed up and I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it. I have so many mixed feelings about this some are good some are bad and some are just all over the place. The other part of me is screaming “WHAT THE HELL DID I JUST READ?” while the other is saying “I LOVE IT!”.

    Our Story

    Inferno is definitely a taboo romance, a sixteen year old with a twenty five year old. It actually didn’t bother me like I thought it would.

    Inferno is about Sloane and Georgie.

    Sloane sees something in Georgie that makes him want to protect her. He sees her spiraling out of control and no one seems to care the girl will be lucky if she even makes it to her seventeenth birthday at the rate she’s going. He can’t help but want to protect her from not only those around her but from herself. Not to mention she’s beautiful and damaged and god help him because he knows he shouldn’t touch Georgie because he would face jail time if he did but temptation is sure hard to resist.

    The story is definitely a page turner. It definitely kept me on my toes and I had to know how this was going to turn out. It is told in multiple points of views – Sloane, Georgie and Cassandra (Georgie’s mom). I actually liked the different points of views minus Cassandra’s. I had to read Inferno without stopping (even though I did have to stop a couple times because of reality). But it is a story you need a whole day to read because you cannot just pick it up and put it down and pick up again. You just need to know what’s going on.

    Our Characters

    Georgie she’s sixteen and lost. She’s spiraling down a rabbit hole of disaster one where she’s lucky if she’s going to live to see her seventeenth birthday. Does her family? NOPE. She already knows she’s an inconvience to her family, they just buy her stuff and tell her to go about her business never showing her attention or even giving her love. It’s a damn shame. She’s a drug addict thanks to her brother’s best friend Crowell. She’s an alcoholic. She’s a damn disaster. You can’t help but feel sorry for her because the girl isn’t wanted. She’s just there and no one cares. You feel like its your job to care about her so you keep reading and praying something, someone helps her out of this disaster and someone does….Sloane.

    Sloane is the rockstar god. He is amazingly talented but does it matter? He’s a recovering drug addict with a list of problems from here to Timbuktu. But he’s working hard to set himself straight not necessarily by his own free will but still enough to try and clean up his image. He sounds like an ass for the first part of the book but then you see the other side of him the one that’s caring, the one that wants to protect and help someone who can’t really protect themselves. I liked the side of Sloane that wasn’t a rockstar. I liked seeing him shield his protection so that he could do the right thing (although it was sometimes for the wrong reasons). I thought he was a far better choice for Georgie compared to all the other jerks in her life.

    Cassandra is Georgie’s mother and that is an insult to mothers everywhere seriously. She views Georgie as a threat. Georgie’s young and beautiful. Cassandra is getting older, her husband is bringing in other women and men into their bedroom and Cassandra is starting to obsess with her age and looks. She’s shallow. She’s downright crazy. Once she sleeps with Sloane she can’t seem to stop thinking about him. She’s downright obsessed with him and it’s insane how she views Georgie as a threat instead of her daughter.

    Overall,

    Like I said I had so many feelings when it came to this story. It was such a beautiful disaster. Once I started the story I just had to finish it and now that I finished it, I need to go on and read the second book because seriously that cliffhanger. I GOTTA KNOW WHAT HAPPENS!

    4,5 Stars!

    It's very contradictory and weird for me to say but the simple truth is i put a four star rating in this book because it deserves it although i can't really say i enjoyed it.

    For the love of God, what the hell?- you may ask and that's exactly what i exclaimed myself countless times while i was reading it. Yes, this is a dark, greedy, over dramatic and frankly difficult to digest book and don't get me wrong this is right up my alley, but it just didn't work for me at least not quite as i hoped.

    There is so much tension and passion, coupled with neglect, pain and even reflection, but it all boils down to the same thing. Most of the characters are too weak in order to hope for them to change their ways or redeem themselves and they go on a repetitive cycle of self-loathing, destruction, scheming or agonizingly impulsive tantrums and resulting for them to end up in a worse place than the one the started from..

    Sloane is a very difficult person to understand but i guess i did it somehow, i even liked him even though he treated Georgie in a terrible way. But it was pure instinct for him to help her. His empathy, lust and heartache were enough to bind them for good. As for Georgie herself, she is in a very bad shape and yet she tends to respond like an adult, unlike her vicious mother or even her grandma who is the absolute devil.

    Although it's a story line that balances precautiously between good and bad, moral and immoral, pain and well more pain, there is an almost totalitarian approach towards the biggest issues mostly in the end. I had a good time reading but at the end i felt exhausted by the tons of heartbreak that was bestowed upon me.

    My last comment? Read it but be prepared to fend of irresponsible parents, crazy and devious grandparents, insane family in general, very unsure main characters, weird fetishes and people who are unable to deal with their shit! They 've got some good reasons but still..

    THOUGHTS ABOUT THE BOOK

    - How on earth the adulterer Parnell -Georgie's father- ends up being the most likeable character along with his mistress i'll never know. But the truth is he was devastated when he found her after her suicide. It was the only humane moment of his.

    - Triple POV (Cassandra, Georgie and Sloane)

    - I can't believe Cassandra! Someone should kill this sick bitch immediately.

    - The writing is very good.

    - The age difference is a taboo issue but it could have gone smoother.

    - Kiln is weird but i believe he tries to protect Georgie in his own way. Or maybe not, i don't know.. I'm sure though that the last phone call was to check up if she was the one that went to the police.

    - About the cliffhanger, he should have known better!

    - I'm starting the next one right away!

    Sloane kisses Georgie. Insists Georgies too young, fucks other women.

    Georgie attempts suicide, Sloane coddles and kisses her, says she's too young, tells her he will be with other women.

    Sloane is the absolute worst "hero" I have ever come across in a book and that means a lot coming from me because I've read books with a lot of assholes before and can usually move past it, so when I can't the character must be pretty damn bad.

    Sloane knows from the very start of the book that Georgie is in love with him and he continues to play with her emotions. He insists throughout the entire book that she is far too young for him and yet conintues to do things such as kiss her and allow her to suck him off.

    Georgie is an extremely lonely, vulnrable drug addict 16 year old girl who is treated like crap by everyone around her and Sloane is probably the worst of them all. He sleeps with her mother for christ sake honestly.

    Worst part - Georgie attempts suicide and Sloane takes her back with him only to be abrupt rude and mean with her, not giving her the time of day and constantly rejecting her pleas for attention and love all the while admitting that he's still going to sleep with other girls BUT HE STILL KISSES HER AND GIVES HER HOPE!!

    Nope, this book angered me in ways I can't explain and I'm so baffled at all of thesse 5 star reviews.

We kept going wanting to see how they developed and where the story was taking us. Unfortunately by 30% nothing was clearer, in fact we were even more confused and still not connecting to any of the characters or seeing any real development. It felt at odds as to what it wanted to be and there was way too much going on without much structure. This DNF breaks our hearts! ♥
