Cousins by Lisa Lang Blakeney
Read August 2015
Our passion is incredibly intense. The connection between us borders on the possessive. Our feelings are absolutely forbidden. We’re cousins…The question now is…what the f*ck are we going to do about it?
After Elizabeth Hill is brutally attacked in her apartment by an intruder and then unceremoniously dumped by her ex-boyfriend, she moves in with her wealthy aunt and uncle who assign her older cousin the task of keeping an eye out for her. All she remembers about her cousin Roman is that he was the moody mean boy who played a cruel trick on her when she was just six years old; but soon learns that he is now a complex and multi-layered man who has the ability to protect her, ignite her, and challenge her like no one ever has before.
Wealthy Roman Masterson makes his fortune by fixing celebrity problems for big money and by any means necessary. He is a foul-mouthed, bad-tempered, manwhore who doesn’t have the time or inclination to babysit a gullible little brat from the suburbs…until he unknowingly spots her in the middle of a crowded dance floor and decides right then and there to claim every one of her orgasms from that moment on. Little does he know that the woman he’s laid claim to is his…cousin.

I’m beginning to hate when she calls me by my first name. I’m starting to see what when she says it, it isn’t a good sign. Masterson is the man she met a few weeks ago in the club…. Roman is the name of her fucking cousin.
Oh man I was really getting into this book and then the author had to go and through in that cliff hanger. Oh I should have seen it coming. I mean I knew when I started this book that there was going to be another one. But really stopping it there, that’s just cruel.
So yes this book is about two cousins that have an attraction to each other and decide to act on it. However they are not ‘blood’ related and the cousin thing didn’t really put me off that much. I have read way more taboo books than this one. If you want to start out reading some taboo books then maybe this is the one for you.
I actually liked Elizabeth and Roman together; they just seemed to click really nicely. Thou it was funny watching them think about each as strangers before they found out who the other really was. The dual POV worked really well for this story. I would have liked more from Roman, but otherwise I really enjoyed this book.
Can’t wait to get the next one now.
