This wasn't supposed to be my life. But it was.
I was just a typical girl, living a typical life. Nothing was out of the ordinary until tragedy threw me into a turnstile I couldn't see my way out of. That was, until him.
I never could've imagined my heart falling the way it did. Hard, fast, and with unbounding beauty. The only problem? He was off limits. Forbidden. But he became my everything, and I became his, so we risked it all. It was only a matter of time until I realized that our risk came with unimaginable consequences. My name is Camellia Hale and his is David Andrews, and this is our love story.
A short story from The Most Beautiful Woman in Town & Other Stories

Taboo in a serious context
A lot of the taboo reads that I get myself mixed up in are hot and steamy and although I do demand a good story regardless, I don’t tend to pick up a taboo read that is as serious as Secret Lucidity, very often. While there have been a few, (ATUAWT, Tampa, Etc) it’s just not what you typically get when you read taboo.
A young girls life was destroyed when the death of her father left her mother unable to cope and her 17 year old heart unable to heal alone.
So many fingers could be pointed in this story and there are so many times I wanted to question the characters. Legit sit them down and ask, “why did you do this because I can’t understand”, but that is a good book, right? One that makes you challenge your way of thinking and draws in your ethics and morals?
All in all a really, really great book. I wish that EK would have honed in the ending a little more. I am a proponent of endings and where I don’t think I deserve to tell an artist how to create their masterpiece, I do think that if you take a reader on a very long journey, you owe them a damn good ending and not a truncated HEA. But thanks just me. Over here wanting to feel all warm and fuzzy before I move on and not still kind of edgy, happy. But still edgy.
Elena Wolfe is a scholar in audio. Like best of the best. Even her teenage voice is one you can’t argue with. Woman excels.
