Illicit Desires (Illicit, #1) I was hoping the Author will write the next book, so that we can have the conclusion to our main characters story, especially if they gonna end up together or not at all given the circumstances and dilemma. While I understand the subject nature of this book might not be for all, it is a really fantastically written story The struggles behind the relationship between Adrian and Lily make you feel sympathy for these kids The author does not write the illicit relationship in a gratuitous or flamboyant manner but instead, presents two endearing character who are stumbling through a very difficult relationship Illicit Desires is wonderfully written and I cannot wait to read any further additions Unavailable Firstly, let me say I was aware of the nature of the story line before reading and this did not put me off in the slightest, and I did not read it when it was a fan fiction It is very well written and tackles a taboo subject with sensitivity, and not gratuitously as could have been the

well written and tackles a taboo subject with sensitivity, and not gratuitously as could have been the case You see the emotional struggles that both the main protagonists go through, although to be fair, it seems to me that Adrian makes his feelings quite plain from the off set, whilst Lilly isconflicted by her feelings and tries to do her best to stop anything happening I do feel that she is very naive, possibly due to her parent s protective treatment of her, and this naivety plays into the hands of Adrian Although both characters are torn by their feelings it is obvious the Adrian feels less guilty about it and encourages the relationshipThat said the story is a powerful and very angsty one, and the emotional struggles the siblings go through are very well written Unlike other reviewers on her I did not read this as Fan Fiction, although I had been aware of the story, and would love to see how Adrian and Lilly s story relationship progresses.Thank you Rose for gifting me an

her characters I was lucky enough to be given an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.Lillian and Adrian have a normal twin bond and relationship at the very start of the story then on a family vacation things change on Adrian s end The story dynamic of the siblings struggle is a very brave and difficult subject to tackle Seeing Adrian s denial then acceptance and Lillian s denial about them makes the story very realistic in the struggles they have coming to terms with feelings which are seen as unnatural and wrong in everyday society We see both sides date and go through normal teenage relationships of growing up and trying hard to ignore the feelings they re so desperately trying to hide, or at least one of them is hiding Lilly s desperate to be normal and it s heartbreaking seeing how much she goes through Adrian pushes her to realise what she s feeling much to his disappointment it takes Lilly a very long time to understand what she s beginning to feel I won t say too much to spoil this story It s full of angst I read some of it through my tears I would say to give this story a read If you re reading this review the story must have caught your attention Why not see what you think Like the authors previous books she doesn t disappoint in the twists and character growth Beautifully written start to another promising series I m very intrigued as to how this story will end I first fell in love with Mrs Mashal talented writing while reading one of her earliest fan fictions And while that plot was unique and original in it s own right, she has expanded her playing field, daring to do what so few people would tackling a taboo subject This creative woman has a knack for surprising me in the best way, always coming up with intriguing ideas that get me hooked While this book may not be for everyone, I urge you to give it a chance I myself was hesitant to read this I first fell in love with Mrs Mashal talented writing while reading one of

creative woman has a knack for surprising me in the best way, always coming up with intriguing ideas that get me hooked While this book may not be for everyone, I urge you to give it a chance I myself was hesitant to read this the first time around, but said what the hell, if I like love everything else she writes, why would I hate this one And boy did that risk pay off A heart wrenching, gut twisting, angst filled book that simultaneously broke my heart and deeply intrigued me It s impossible not to love these characters, flaws and all Trying to guess what Adrian s next move was, or how Lillian would react to it kept me on the edge of my seat Unfortunately, my nails suffered the consequencesWithout giving too much away, the struggle both Adrian and Lily go through just about killed me sometimes The confusion, the anguish and eventually the acceptance and desperate desire that Adrian feels for his twin is an emotional roller coaster The changes in their relationship is so realistic, so well portrayed, you feel as though you know them, as though they are real people living here and now Lillian s internal struggle is, on the other hand, something I could completely relate to She s the voice of reason in this story, but at what cost Her denial is so powerful, yet she struggles to deny her beloved brother and her own pleasure, with mixed results Our lovely twin s conflicting desires the desire to truly feel and the other to respect social and legal norms is absolutely captivating So again, I urge you to try something out of your comfort zone You just might be surprised by how much you enjoy it I know I was I absolutely loved this I was so happy to get to read this early Some may think the subject matter taboo, but I see nothing wrong with it in a work of fiction I really love the angsty characters That ending though Can t wait to read the next one The author has done a great job again.
