Publisher's Summary

What happens when all that youth fades away? What made it so great to begin with?

Raquel has a reputation around town. When she's not dominating the luxury real estate market, she's enjoying the company of yet another young girlfriend. 

Because there's nothing that sates the appetite of the neighborhood cougar like the firm flesh of her 20-something prey. 

But Raquel isn't immune to heartbreak. Her therapist believes she dates co-eds because she's attempting to recreate the great romance of her youth. The one that ended when her ex-girlfriend left her for someone else. 

Now she's met someone new. Someone young... but someone who is prepared to go toe-to-toe with the resident lesbian cougar. 

The taste of a forbidden fruit is more sinful when you close your eyes.

Lisa has had her eyes on Raquel for a mighty long time. Fresh from college, she knows where she wants to take her life next: right into Raquel's bed and, maybe, down the aisle! 

First she must overcome the older woman's reservations about falling in love again. Even then, there is one big secret Lisa harbors in her young and naïve heart. 

A secret that would make her too forbidden to touch.

Good thing Lisa doesn't let anything get in the way of her obsession for one older woman.

Not So Good

I listened to this one a few months ago and didn't really like it much so I thought maybe it was the space or mood I was in; I decided I'd put it aside for awhile. Okay it wasn't the time, the space, or my mood; it's unfortunate but the story just isn't that good and never rises above lesbian age difference cliches. I'm fairly certain I made it all the way through the book the first time, yet I couldn't remember listening to any portion of the five and a half hours of the story I made it through this time. I'm a lesbian living a very small, very red state kind of place and I work mainly from home, audiobooks are an important part of my day. This one faiedl to meet even small expectations.

Well, that was different!

I'm not sure what to say about Forbidden Fruit. It's one of those books that has a crazy storyline that sounds nearly impossible to pull off, but somehow Hildred Billings does. A 24/25 year old basically stalks a 45 yr old cougar realtor and they have lots of sex and then the cougar realtor finds out who the younger woman really is. I dont want to give away too much, but the girl's identity is important and you'll figure it out immediately. The fun is in how the truth comes out. Of course they work things out in the end. I didn't love the characters. I'm not sure if I would have rooted for them more if the narrator had better voices... although as the book was near the end I liked them more. Overall, pretty good listen. if you are bored with routine romance novels, try Forbidden Fruit.

Predictable, yet decent!

This book was fairly decent and I enjoyed listening to it for what it was. I figured the surprise out early on and was pretty much waiting for confirmation, which took much longer than I thought it should. The characters were OK and had chemistry. Overall easy read!
