We met Lily and Jacob in Complicate Me. Forbid Me is a standalone novel, so you do not need to read Complicate Me first....but I highly recommend it because 1) it's a freaking fantastic book and 2) I feel you have a deeper understanding of these two, and the whole group, if you read Complicate Me first.

With that said...
Lily has been in love with Jacob for years, and Jacob has tried to fight his feelings for Lily for just as long. Lily is strong and mature beyond her years. She has grown up with the Good Ol' Boys (Lucas is her older brother and Jacob's best friend), but she's always been closer to Jacob. He's been there for her whenever she has needed him...no matter the distance or circumstances. Jacob has been fighting his feelings for Lily and decides to put distance between them by moving to California. Once he realizes she's everything he wants and needs, he decides to do whatever it takes to win her back.

I love that Forbid Me starts where Complicate Me ended. Forbid Me goes back and forth between past and present, which allows us to see how they have ended up where they are today. We are "reliving" some events from CM but through Jacob and Lily's eyes. The event that tore them apart for years wasn't mentioned in CM and is totally an I-didn't-see-that-coming moment!! I was honestly waiting for Jacob to screw up in the present but he didn't...HUGE relief for me because I've been pulling for since reading CM!

I didn't feel the angst like I did with CM (yay because I just wanted them to get their HEA), but there were moments I ugly cried and times that I cried because I was so happy.

Some may have a problem with the 7-year age difference, but it wasn't written in a way to be dirty or trashy.

Every time I read a novel from M Robinson am I am blown away at her consistency to always tell a story that just grabs me and doesn’t let go to the very end!! She is such the master story teller in that she is able to spin a tale that has me consumed by every word on the page! This time with Forbid Me, she gives us the tale of Jacob and Lilly. Even though this is book two in a series, each book is a standalone and you can read this book without reading book one. This was a great addition to the series and I cannot wait for Dylan and Audrey’s story!! This is a complete novel and is told in both characters points of views and goes back and forth between past and present.

Lily is the younger sister that has followed the good ole boys around since she could crawl. Jacob watched who grow into a young adult and always saw her for more than his best friend’s sister. Lucas made it clear that his friends were off limits to Lily but sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants. Being seven years old, Jacob waited. He knew it was wrong to think of Lily for more than anything than Lucas’s sister but he couldn’t help her. With every year he watched her blossom he knew she was off limits. He would fight their attraction until the day he could no longer fight it.

“Nothing has changed. Lucas is still my brother. He’s still your best friend. I’m still his baby sister. You’re still seven years older than me, expect I’m not a kid anymore.”- Lilly

Once Jacob and Lily got a taste of each other they were addicted. They could not get enough of each other but they both knew Lucas would kill them both of he found out. Even though their connection was off the charts, Jacob knew he had to let Lilly live her life.

From the first time Lily appeared in "Complicate Me" I loved her and couldn't wait for her story. Once again M Robinson has delivered a truly wonderful book that covers every spectrum of emotion and I loved it.

Lily is Lucas's baby sister and Jacob is her brothers best friend who is 7 years older - beginning to see the problem here? As we discovered in Complicate me, Jacob has been a part of Lily's life since the day she was born. She was considered his little sister but as the years went by Lily knew from a very early age that she loved Jacob - that he was her lobster and even though at first Jacob refused to acknowledge it he knew Lily was his lobster too, but her age, her brother, the other good Ol boys and their parents were all the things that kept them apart for so many years.

This story is told in dual POV as well as from past to present. It connects to the timeline in Complicate Me and for me it worked really well. There is an underlying suspense / mystery through the book that you as a reader can't wait to find out what happened to Lily and Jacob being apart for 3 years and her hating him so much and these glimpses from past to present feed that anticipation.

Lily is a great heroine. She is funny, full of life, quick witted and her smart arse comments are brilliant. She loves fiercely, is head strong and stubborn at times and when she was in pain and hurting I felt it too. I felt her emptiness, and despair and fear and I cried with her.

Jacob was a complete surprise. I had no idea he was so possessive and dominant!! He was a lawyer and boy did he have a way with words. I loved his confidence and they way he wouldn't take no for an answer from Lily when he FINALLY couldn't stay away from her anymore.
