  • Harper Miller

    Thanks for visiting my little slice of heaven This is the part where I provide readers with a little background info about moi Here it goesHarper Miller is a thirty something native New Yorker She s traveled the world and lived in a variety of places but always finds her way back to the Big Apple A lackluster love life leaves time to explore new interests for Harper it is writing The Sweetest Taboo An Unconventional Romance is her debut novel In her mind, the perfect Alpha male possesses intellect, humor, and a kinky streak that rivals the size of California.When she isn t writing, Harper utilizes her graduate degree in the field of medical research She enjoys fitness related activities, drinking copious amounts of wine, and going on bad dates.What s so cool about writing Hmm, well, I write because I see stories as mini movies playing in my head, and I m crazy sappy I m the type of woman who watches the Hallmark channel with a box of Kleenex on standby I also write because we need PoC LGBTQIA persons as main characters in romance And lastly, I write because I book boyfriends make up for the lack of prospects in my dating life They re quite AWESOME, and in my world, they always leave the toilet seat down.


  • A sweetly kinky romance for lovers of strong submissivesA love story can begin anywhere, and ours began the night I saved her life Couple of things right of the bat I love how this couple met, and the gradual build up of trust and respect throughout their relationship They were freakin adorable and impossibly sexy in equal measure.It was easy to feel the love grow between these characters.In the Prologue we have the opportunity to see this couple s HEA, and with the first chapter, we rewind thre [...]

  • The Sweetest Taboo A ReviewBefore I get into the meat of this review, let me preface things by saying I ve never considered myself a fan of BDSM I always thought it was a brutish, ridiculous act of sexual deviancy WRONG NOPE GIRL BYE You see, the problem was, I was reading books about BDSM that only caricaturized brutish, sexually deviant acts There was never proper explanation of what embodies a healthy, consensual, dare I say romantic BDSM relationship There was always those stories of a domin [...]

  • This is my first book by this author but I am sure it will not be my last.This is Micah and Rick s story Although this story has a BDSM and Dominant Submissive theme it is essentially a love story The story was engrossing and moves at a quick pace These are the elements I love about a good book The story should grab me from the first page and not waste words The author did not overload us with unnecessary narrative which I for one appreciated Everyone word was relevant and important to the story [...]

  • The book that I m reviewing today is the Sweetest Taboo, and it s the author s debut novel From it s title to the characters, The Sweetest Taboo was a fantastic little story and honestly if this is the author s first book, then I can t wait to see what she churns out the seasoned she becomes.There are a few things that you as readers should know right out of the gate First, this is a BDSM romance It isn t anything too heavy and it is tastefully done If you re not open to the idea of BDSM then t [...]

  • THE SWEETEST TABOO was a wonderfully erotic BDSM love story I m not overly fond of quick reads, but Miller was able to wrap a complete and thoroughly enjoyable read in under 200 pages There were no holes in the story, no missing plot, no questions left hanging mid air THE SWEETEST TABOO is a tightly written and fulfilling contemporary erotic tale that will suck you in and leave you completely satisfied in the end The story is written in a manner that I haven t encountered before and took a bit o [...]

  • Really, this is of a 2.5, but Im rounding down for overall impression.As stated in my update response to Tina, the problem I ultimately had with this story is that it reads like Kink For Dummies or something along those lines I think the author was so busy educating us about the basic facts of this lifestyle, she kind of let the love story slip through the cracks The h h s exchanges read like a series of job interviews than dating or a relationship and the constant use of the Sir thing just k [...]

  • I was gifted an eARC in exchange for an honest review.For The Sweetest Taboo to be Miss Miller s first foray into authoring, she put her best foot forward I loved the premise of the story and was very excited to see the bits and pieces of visuals via social media We meet the heroine, micah I ll take a page from the author s novel and refer to her in lower case , and Rick again, taking a page from the author s writing style first in a very hot prologue that made me want to quickly turn the page t [...]

  • New author, Harper Miller wrote an excellent IR BDSM romance I loved Micah and her not me, the low self esteem sub Micah was a sharp but thirsty submissive who knew exactly what she wanted after having to come into contact with so many fake doms Rick, the hero made this book so worthwhile for me because he wanted a true sub to be his pretty little girl to love in the BDSM lifestyle He had grown tired of sampling different subs Rick wanted his own submissive to meet his needs as well as the sub s [...]

  • I must say this book was just what the doctor ordered I have been somewhat curious about the lifestyle of couples who indulge in BDSM, and though I know this is fiction, it seemed very authentic Everyone needs love no matter their proclivities Rick was an overwhelming Master from the very beginning He knew what he wanted and went for it, even if he had trouble expressing it to micha Love at first sight is a very powerful thing and it is not for the faint at heart I adored the way he cared for mi [...]

  • I came across The Sweetest Taboo in my search for an interracial romance that included a black female The pickings were slim I sampled the Sweetest Taboo and didn t find it too sweet I found the strict D s protocol adherences in the book s style to be off putting because I didn t understand them so I chose another book A few months later, I revisited the sample, hoping time would make me optimistic enough to finish the book Second time s the charm This was a refreshing read A lot of romance book [...]

  • There s a lot to love about The Sweetest Taboo I love Rick and micah I love how he doggedly pursued her after a chance sighting at a BDSM club where he intervened during a medical emergency I absolutely love how, despite each of them having strong feelings for each other early on, they held out and didn t say what they were feeling because they wanted to be sure I love how Miller schooled us in the finer points of the lifestyle in this book I loved how micah and kisa were such great BFFs I loved [...]

  • This is the first debut novel from Author Harper Miller and boy does she make her presence known First let me say that when writing bdsm rarely do authors get it right Harper sets herself apart from the rest not only does she get it right she weaves an unconventional tale of love, romance, with a bit of kink This story first starts off with the couple micah and Rick telling their love story for an interview which then transcends into the story you read Before I get into my review the author does [...]

  • Zarah s Review My obedient vixen, My lover, My friend, My wife, My everythingI received this title courtesy of Sweet and Sassy Book Aholics for an honest reviewFor a debut novel, The Sweetest Taboo is really well done I have read many BDSM books but none quite like this one.Both Rick and Micah have been hurt in the past but when they meet and come together their relationship moves very quickly Whether right or wrong, who can judge how quickly things should move in each individuals relationship T [...]

  • Review Copy generously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review 3.5 starsAs a debut novel by an Independent Author, I give mad props for a solid and enjoyable read I liked this for a few reasons Though, as a critical reader, I had a few problems fully connecting.This is written in a unique style frequently found in the D s community within message boards and chat rooms wherein pronouns and names of submissives are lowercase and those of dominants are uppercase in an effort to show [...]

  • I read any genre I think it keeps things fresh When I read romance, erotic romance, or even just erotica I tend to stay away from Dominant submissive stories Not for the reasons you may think I just feel like they get it wrong I know people in the lifestyle and I am very aware that D s relationships aren t abusive It seems so many authors write their D s relationships with an abusive dominant I won t lie, I was worried to start this story Having never read anything by this author, I didn t know [...]

  • The Sweetest Taboo An Unconventional Romance The Sweetest Taboo by author Harper Miller, is a stunning debut BDSM novel depicting a BWWM D s interracial romance Rick and micah s relationship is neither unrealistic to the lifestyle, nor is it unrealistic to a fairytale or whirlwind romance you might hear about over brunch with your friends and author Harper Miller s deft turn with the pin mesmeric , though is certainly a refreshing addition to the IR MC genre Specifically, I really appreciate the [...]

  • This book is about a D s relationship, but most importantly it is a love story a real love story, and yes it is very sweet Sure, there are hot scenes which became increasingly frustrating for me, but in a good way , but you ll see that this book isn t the typical boy meets girl, boy can t contain his lust for said bratty girl, huge fight, then resolution to a HEA Not that there s anything wrong with those books I read them all the time However, this book really is about the love Don t get me wr [...]

  • This was my first book I have ever read from this author and I can say she Has a new fan in me, What a great story I have never read a BDSM book where there was actually respect to the fullest and romance Usually it is demeaning and brutal But this story was an actual love bdsm book and takes us on the journey of how Micah and Rick have come together I need to stand up and give Harper a round of applause because she went outside the norm for a BDSM story and made you love the story and the coupl [...]

  • I received this book as an ARC for my honest review And OMG let me tell you, it was SO good I thought the format of the D s dynamic was going to bother me reading but it truly didn t In my opinion, it made it that much better Especially with a scene around the holidays I don t want to write any spoilers.I thought it was well written and it was a nice view into that dynamic I was hooked into the story from the very beginning I have already recommended this book to a friend and I will recommend it [...]

  • This is Harper s debut novel and I loved Rick and Micah s story It s a D S story with some light BDSM, and it s a nice romantic story I really enjoyed the realistic conversations I also liked the dynamic between Rick, the alpha who wasn t over the top, and Micah s spunky attitude and insecurities They both were looking for something, and they found it in each other.

  • Very well written I enjoyed reading about Micah and Rick s story They are both strong people in their own right Their search for someone to be with in the D s world has almost ended in defeat before they meet Some of the BDSM scenes are rather intense But on the whole I really enjoyed this book Reviewed by Laura

  • Just too boring, I could not have cared less about Micah and Rick No plot, no character development, no tension, there just was nothing to this story.Get this, this is a romance with a D s twist but Rick the Dom refuses to have intercourse with Micah, his submissive, for months This is really odd because Micah lives with him during the entire time and she wants intercourse and is puzzled and angry over Rick s refusal Rick does not want intercourse until he can confess his love for her Really, ho [...]

  • I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.The Sweetest Taboo by Harper Miller is a unusual BDSM novella It is as much about the characters outside the playroom interacting with friends, family, and co workers and how they met and fell in love, as it is about their sexual experiences together Miller does her best to show that committed BDSM relationships are than toys, props and playrooms.The story is told in dual POV It starts in present time, and then jumps [...]

  • I had been trying to read this book since Thanksgiving morning 12 21 am exactly and due to accidents, family drama and work I was being to think it would never happen, but I m so glad it did I m not sure where to start on how much I enjoyed this book, I ve read pieces of this author s work before so I knew it would be good but this was even better.While I normally don t read notes by the author to start off with I m grateful that I did I was a little concerned at first about the writing style an [...]

  • This book had me feeling some kind of way.Way out of my comfort zone that is for sure.This book is about a D s relationship It isn t a BDSM book with all the spankings such, even though Rick does have a playroom It really is a relationship book about a strong submissive who completely lives the life and her search for, and successful landing of, a caring Dom This was a very sweet book that alternates POVs between Micah, the female sub and Rick her Dom Rick was simultaneously Masterful and nurtur [...]

  • This book was a quick and engaging read The author did a wonderful job at establishing a voice for both Micah and Rick, something that is no easy task Each had a strong history, and the book did a nice job at merging their backgrounds to create an exhilarating love story that leaves you rooting for the couple.I have not read much BDSM erotica, and this was a really interesting introduction to the lifestyle The story makes it very accessible and removes the deviant aspect of it, allowing you to s [...]

  • Rick Thomas is a prominent doctor and lecture for a well known New York hospital, he is also a very much Dom, who having been burnt has sworn off women Micah works for a museum in charge of the transporting and displaying of select collections who along with her staff are often pressed with long hours of thankless work.A chance meeting at a private night club leads the two to try and bury their past mistakes and try again.How to make their alternate lifestyle work is the question, both have long [...]

  • Rick is a white Dom, micah is a black submissive though far from powerless in her professional or love life Written in that style all His pronouns capitalized, all hers lower case, even including her name that style takes a little getting used to, like reading or hearing Shakespeare You don t feel like it is making sense, and then suddenly, it clicks.Even with a heads up note on this by the author, that nuance kept me from fully getting into the story at first However, if you are used to this st [...]
