“A bit of a modern day Romeo and Juliet story.” —Under the Covers
“This is a totally different experience from Skye Jordan’s Renegade Series with the small town feel, but at the same time, she delivers what I expected: a funny, fresh story with great characters and a solid storyline. I can’t wait to read book two in this series.” —Books and Tequila, 4 Stars
“[This] story is fun and sexy yet full of drama.” —Scandalous Book Blog

The story is set in the small town of Wildwood, ten years after an accident claimed the life of a family member of Ethan Hayes’ in the bar owned by Delaney Hart’s father, The Bad Seed. This death forever changed the lives of Ethan, Delaney and their families. While Ethan stayed in Wildwood and dealt with the fallout of what happened, Delaney packed her bags and ran as far as she could. Now that her father has passed away, as the oldest daughter she’s back in town to decide the fate of The Bad Seed, the bar that ruined so many peoples’ lives, including hers. Time has taken its toll on the dilapidated structure and Delaney, who’s now a construction project manager, must figure out if it is better to just bulldoze the place down or to rebuild it and sell it off. Enter Ethan, Wildwood’s totally hot chief planner and building inspector by day, and local brewmaster by night. The Bad Seed has something he needs. It’s the only thing that stands in the way of his future and he’d like nothing more than Delaney, his former high school crush, to bulldoze the place to the ground so that he could get what he wants. The problem is that despite the fact that Ethan and Delaney shouldn’t be together, they can’t seem to keep their hands off each other which eventually leads to bigger problems, ones of the heart. While the heart wants what it wants, the fact still remained that for each of them to achieve their goals, the other must fail. That’s a hard pill to swallow when you care about someone.
When I think of Ethan and Delaney the phrase “between a rock and a hard place” comes to mind. No truer words could describe these two characters. Both of them made mistakes on that fateful night, ones they can’t take back, no matter how much they wished they could. Now they are chained to a past that can’t ever be changed, and are saddled with gut wrenching guilt that eats at them every day, never letting them forget the pain they’ve caused their families. What makes this story so interesting is how each of them dealt with that guilt, how their actions after what happened shaped who they are as a person and how they’ve lived their lives and how all of that has affected their family dynamics.
The sex scenes in Forbidden Fling are smokin’ hot! If you’re like me, sometimes you’ll find yourself skimming through sex scenes in books if they are not well done. That’s never the case in a Skye Jordan book. The chemistry between these two is off the charts and I can guarantee that you’ll be taking your time to savor every word, every touch, every thought that Ethan and Delaney share together.
There are plenty of interesting secondary characters introduced in Forbidden Fling, so Ms. Jordan has oodles of room to expand the series which I’m sure will thrill fans like me. In fact, Wild Kisses, Avery and Trace’s story, is already up for pre-order and due out January 10, 2017!

Delaney is a Hart and Ethan is a Hayes.
‘A Hart and a Hayes? That’s a tall order.’
Delaney fights it and Ethan begs for it. It’s quite the back and forth. Their first meeting was memorable and I enjoyed their connection. The love scenes were hot and timely, not overly done which fit the book and the characters well.
There’s a major divide between them, The Bad Seed Bar, it’s her home-turf and the location of his family’s devastation. There’s bad blood seeping from every board in that old bar and Delaney must figure out what’s best for her and her sisters, renovate that old building or burn her to the ground. Ethan and his family want to have a say in her decision but Delaney is extremely strong and stands her ground, she’ll make up her own mind. I really did like her character, she was smart, savvy and knew her own mind.
This is definitely the first in a series, I’m guessing, all three sisters will get a book, it’s set up that way. I really liked the secondary characters, especially Ethan’s Grandfather and Delaney’s Aunt Phoebe, I appreciated the fact that they each had someone in their corner. I’m looking forward to delving into Wildwood again and watching were these two families end up. The ending was tied up nice and neat but left some tendrils along the way so we are left with minor questions, but I’m hoping we haven’t seen the last of Delaney and Ethan, I want my questions answered. I’m ready for Avery’s book.
Delaney Hart ran out of Wildwood as fast as she could when the town turned on her. She changed her image and put the past behind her, but now she was back and people are not happy.
Ethan Hayes is the good son who made a "mistake," in his family's eyes, and he has been working on fixing things for 10 years. His family blames him for the tragedy that ran Delaney out of town.
Ethan and Delaney are suppose to be on opposite sides, but when Ethan runs into Delaney again, he remembers all the years that he was attracted to her. He doesn't tell her who he is and hopes that things could change.
Holy HAWTNESS! Delaney and Ethan have the chemistry, but there is more to it. They have something that they never knew they were looking for. And the only issue is everyone that is standing in their way. They have to sneak time together, but they never know if they are going to be able to make it through the meeting without complications.
The sense of family dynamics is so screwed up for these two and they have to decide if it is worth the risk.
The chemistry, friendship, struggles, and pain that the two share will keep you holding on for a HEA. But they have to decide if they are going to fight through the struggles or walk away. You can't choose their path because they didn't know it themselves.
