Taboo for You by Anyta Sunday (3.5 Stars)

I really enjoyed parts of this story, like the best friends to lovers theme, while some parts just didn’t work for me at all, like being in the head of a 15 year-old while he’s thinking of having sex.  The love and adoration that Luke and Sam had for each other, each in their own way, was very sweet.  It was enjoyable to watch them spend time together and deal with Sam’s son, Jeremy. While I liked the issues related to Jeremy, I didn’t enjoy getting his POV.  It also bothered me that Luke and Sam finally move their relationship forward, but it happens under false pretenses. There were too many conversations that they avoided having even though they were supposedly best friends.


Sam’s freaking out. He’s 30 in three weeks. And what has he done in his twenties? It’s pretty simple math: nothing exciting at all. But hey, he has three weeks right? Maybe that’s just enough time to tick his way through a 20s Must Do List . . .

Luke’s freaking screwed. He’s come out to his family, and his friends. Except there’s a certain someone who doesn’t know yet: his neighbor of 7 years. Who also happens to be his best friend. Who Luke needs to tell the truth, but he just . . . can’t . . . seem to . . .

Jeremy’s freaking over-the-moon. It’s the countdown to his 15th birthday, and his goal is simple. No matter what, he’s going to spend heaps of time with saucy Suzy. But first he needs to get his over-protective, no-girlfriend-‘cause-you’ll-get-her-pregnant parents off his back. And what better way than pretending he’s gay?

Sam, Luke, and Jeremy. Three guys who have a lot of history together, and a lot of future too—

—well, if they can sort out their issues, that is.
