Jackson has never felt anything from his mother. All his life she treated him badly and he thought he would never have anything good in his life. That is until Cole came on the scene. Cole was in his early forties, and he was kind, handsome and built from pure muscle. The only problem was he was about to marry Jackson’s mum, but he was all that Jackson could think about.
It was on the night of his eighteenth birthday when the only gift Jackson got was a pendant from Cole that he knew meant that there was something between them. Jackson’s innocence was something that he wanted to offer Cole, but he never knew if that chance would ever appear. For now, he would have to watch from afar and hope that his fantasies would be enough.
Maybe one day he would get a chance at a night with Cole, but a sexual relationship with his stepfather was surely off limits and taboo. Or was it?
An MM Erotica Short Story by Grayson Knight.
On the night of my eighteenth, my mum had gone out partying with her friends and I was alone in my room. I was wearing nothing but my boxers as I stood in front of the mirror lifting my free-weights in an attempt to exercise out my anger. As I watched myself, my green eyes looked back at me from my reflection with determination. I was determined to not let this get me down, and I would go on and eventually make something of myself. There was a knock on my door, and I carried on working out as I shouted.
The door was already ajar and I watched as it opened and Cole came in and stood awkwardly by the door. He was tall and muscular, and as I watched him in the reflection of my mirror I could see his pecs tense, and his nipples were erect through his tight t-shirt. He was pretty fucking hot.
“Sorry to bother you Jackson, I just wanted to come and see how you were doing.’ He stepped forward and sat on my bed behind me.
I crouched and put my weights on the floor next to my mirror and stood up. I tried to wipe the sweat that was dripping from my blonde hair as I turned to face my future step-father. He looked me up and down and his eyes landed on my toned stomach as he quickly averted his eyes. I smiled at him then.
“It’s OK Cole, you’re not bothering me at all.” Our eyes met, and I swear I felt something spark between us. I licked my dry lips and Cole caught the action. He shifted where he sat as he signalled for me to sit beside him. As I did his weight on the bed made me feel a little flustered, I turned to face him and he was looking at me intensely. His eyes bore into me and my breath hitched in my chest. He was ridiculously sexy and I suddenly felt very exposed sat here in just my tight boxers.
As you may have gathered from
the blurb, this is a taboo story. Here we have eighteen year old Jackson who
has the hots for his soon to be stepfather, Cole. When it turns out that the
attraction is actually returned, Jackson discovers that the reality of being
with Cole is even better than anything he could have imagined.
What to say about this story?
Well, first and I guess foremost, it’s a hot tale. Jackson is a typical
eighteen-year-old and his libido is constantly on the go. Cole appears to have
more control when the story starts and tries to keep his distance from the
young man who’s about to become his stepson, but in the end the mutual
attraction proves much stronger than common sense.
This is an erotic tale more
than anything else so a lot of the story focuses on sex. And, I have no problem
with that. I would however have liked a scene featuring Jackson’s mother to
experience her horribleness first hand, so to speak. As it is we have to take
Jackson at his word when he says she’s a nasty piece of work and since he’s
obsessed with the man she’s about to marry I’m not sure he’s all too
Cole’s role and action in this
story required some real suspension of disbelief. Why would a man who according
to Jackson is caring and nice marry someone as nasty as Jackson’s mom? And, why
did he go ahead with the wedding ever after giving in to his attraction to
I understand that this is the
first book in a planned series and it is quite possible that these and other
questions will be answered later on. I hope so, because this could be the start
of an intriguing tale and I will most definitely read the second book to see
where it all goes.
However (and I hate doing this)
I feel I have to add the following. I really hope that what I just read was the
ARC rather than the finished product. Because in my humble opinion this book
could do with an editor and/or proofreader. I know that it is next to
impossible to produce a completely mistake free book. This story however had
too many repetitions and uses of ‘sound-a-likes’ for me to think they’d just
slipped through the net. And that’s a shame. Forbidden Lust could be a
wonderful addition to the Taboo Genre. As it stands, this book is an
entertaining and hot read that should have been more.
