Review by Tiger Lily

Where Murphy Abbott is concerned, Chantal Stevens can’t stop asking herself…what if?

Chantal met the incredibly sexy industrialist when he gave the commencement speech at her college graduation. He was polite and charming, yet the promise of ecstasy in his eyes mesmerized her. The moment he shook her hand, she knew she wanted to know him…in every way possible.

Now, ten years later, Chantal misrepresents herself to finagle an invitation to his isolated and very private Caribbean island in order to seduce him and finally discover the answer. One thing she failed to consider…Murphy might have a hidden agenda of his own.

Sometimes a chance encounter is all it takes to leave a lasting impression. Want to know more? Visit Forbidden Island and learn more.

Ms. Gentry writes an interesting short story, sizzling with steamy sex scenes and a budding passion Chantal and Murphy can’t deny. I loved the descriptions of the island; you felt like you were really there with them.

I liked that Chantal and Murphy can’t seem to keep their hands off each other. The adoration bubbled from each page. Chantal, though not totally honest, is devoted to finding out whether a relationship with Murphy will be as smoldering as she suspects. I liked that she was so blunt and that he wasn’t afraid to go exploring with her.

The reader can identify with her need to find out whether the attraction is fleeting or something that could last a lifetime. The reader can also feel for Chantal. She wants to know what could’ve been and does her best to set that into motion.

Although I felt the physical relationship started a bit fast, once Chantal and Murphy got together, they really did burn up the sheets, the pages, and the story! You could feel the trust between these two people, even so early in the tryst.

If you want a sexy read for a cool summer night, then I’d suggest Forbidden Island. I give this steamy short story 4 ½ cherries.
