Review: Temptation

Temptation by Selena Kitt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is no doubt about it; author Selena Kitt is the Queen of Taboo! I started reading Kitt’s stories back in 2010 and when it comes to taboo topics, her work is the gold standard, in my opinion.

For the benefit of new readers, I feel it's necessary to give a brief history of how TEMPTATION was born.

UNDER MR. NOLAN'S BED - THE ORIGINAL, often referred to as “UMNB,” was originally published in 2008. The pages contained a very naughty story of sexual exploration that involved a little girl-on-girl action and *gasp* incest. It was a hot little number and earned a 4/5 star rating from me, but the level of steam and the taboo nature of the book, may have been a little "much" for some readers.

Selena Kitt is obviously a smart businesswoman. In an effort to appeal to the masses with this wildly popular story, Ms. Kitt recreated her masterpiece in 2010 and introduced the “slightly less naughty but no less sexy re-telling” of the taboo events that occurred in The Original UMNB and named it PLAID SKIRT CONFESSIONS. This new and altered version took out the incest angle and made it more of a May/December type of romance. Sweet by Kitt standards, but still sexy!

In 2010, Amazon decided to be the morality police and pull all incest related reading material from their site. Ms. Kitt knew that fighting that battle was futile and rolled with the changes in 2011 by taking a middle of the road approach by creating a story that wasn’t quite as taboo as The Original version and not as “tame” as PLAID SKIRT CONFESSIONS. Conforming to the new “no incest” rules at Amazon, she created UNDER MR. NOLAN'S BED - REVISED and told a story of pseudo-incest where the characters were not of any blood relation, but still had that father/daughter type of relationship, so it was taboo-ish, but not illegal and fit right in with the new Amazon guidelines – CLEVER!

When I want to read something that skirts the taboo, Selena Kitt is my “go-to” author, so, when I found out that she was planning an exciting trilogy based on one of my favorite stories, UMNB, I knew I had to have it!

TEMPTATION is, by Ms. Kitt’s own description, a retelling of The Original with a “a richer experience with deeper secrets to reveal.” Having read the original, trust me when I say this: You will definitely want to read this updated version – although the bones of the story is basically the same, it is, in fact, a “richer experience.” In roughly 250 pages, we learn more about what drives the characters and we get a clearer picture of their lives and how they live. If you are an old Selena Kitt fan, rest assured that TEMPTATION contains all the naughty goodness that you have come to love about her work. This first installment in the UMNB Trilogy catapults the basic story (used in all the books previously mentioned) to the top of my taboo list.

I am not typically one to re-read books, but each version of this story has unique elements that make them seem like different reads - each appealing to a variety of tastes. Kudos to author, Selena Kitt for revising, reinventing and reviving this delicious tale of lust and forbidden love. If you love the taboo, then you will love the first book, TEMPTATION, in this new trilogy, UNDER MR. NOLAN’S BED.
