"With the passion of Zane and the gut-wrenching emotion of Noire, Risqu takes the erotic-fiction scene by storm."
-Danielle Santiago, author of Little Ghetto Girl
The sweetest taboo-if you want it, come get it. . . .
Yuri and Drae are keeping secrets-each caught up in her own whirlwind of scandal and passion. They swore as children that they would never conceal anything from each other, but now, as adults, they realize that not everything is meant to be told. Yuri is married to Jeff, a man she never really loved yet settled for. During a trip to the Caribbean she begins a torrid affair with her longtime friend Britt, a rising reggae star she has always secretly desired. Drae, a high school guidance counselor, is married to Hassan, a sadistic porn king who makes her "audition" his actors and actresses while he gets off on the wild, and not always consensual, sex. As Yuri and Drae struggle to keep up their double lives, their clandestine cover-ups come to light-and the consequences are more than either of them bargained for.
