Book Review: Tabou by Beckett Riley

Trapped between societal boundaries, Tom and Theia Edwards thought they knew all about the family business they just inherited from their father. When the true nature of his dealings are revealed, they are thrust into the savage world of drug smuggling for a Mexican cartel.

Forced to continue the work their father once did or suffer the consequences of having their darkest secret exposed, they embark on a journey that will reel them into a nest of vipers full of deceit and betrayal at every turn. But underestimating the forbidden and unbreakable bond between Tom and Theia can prove to be just as deadly to anyone standing in their way.

This book reads like the script of an action movie with lots of twists and turns. It was engaging and exciting, I loved every minute of this plot and it’s steamy too, so a great combination. I just couldn’t get past the fact that the MCs are siblings. Step-siblings would work and not have that yuck factor but they’re blood-related. I assumed the taboo here would be related to the business they inherited so I was not prepared for this. I enjoyed this book but that little fact keeps me from completely loving it unconditionally. It’s a fantastic plot and ends with a great set up for a series but incest just isn’t my jam. I received an ARC from Xpresso Book Tours in exchange for an honest review.
