This is my third Laura Kaye book and she never disappoints to write heart-warming stories about characters who seem to exist apart from everyone else and just want to find a place where they belong, someone they can belong to. In this story, the hero, a protector and friend finds himself in a role reversal. Once, a long time ago, he did the protecting. Now he's the one being protected by the one person he thinks he can't and shouldn't want. But being cared about never felt so good.

After the death of their mother, Alyssa and Brady Scott's father turned into an alcoholic and abusive towards his children. Their only solace was Marco Vieri , their neighbor. The three of them ended up becoming very close. When the boys were old enough, they moved in together and took Alyssa with them. Once she left for college, Brady and Marco moved on to join the Army's Special Forces.

Alyssa has just graduated from college and is down on her luck. With no money or possessions, she returns to her home town to take a job at Whiskey's. She knows Marco works there, so she hopes she'll be able to work with her once best friend (and secret crush) and earn enough money to afford a place to stay. The reunion doesn't go quite as planned. Marco is happy to see her at first, until he realizes she'll be working in that rowdy place. He feels he owes it to Brady to look out for her when the last thing he wants to do is babysit her. Then he notices that she's not a kid anymore, but she's turned into a woman since he last saw her. When fantasies of Alyssa creep into his mind unbidden, Marco desperately tries to tell himself to stay away from Alyssa.

Laura Kaye is hit and miss with me. This one was a miss. Story moved along smoothly, but I just couldn't buy it. Marco still having issues after returning from Afghanistan hasn't seen Alyssa in a few years. They see each other when she shows up to work at the bar where he's working. He's all up and down, hot and cold bi-polar on her. Alyssa's been pining away in love with Marco for years...ok, believable. But when they finally hook up (once and only once) they're off again, then it's will you "Marry Me" (Really! He sings the Train song to her) and BAM - we have an HEA, The End. WTH!?!!? I wanted several nice long heated romantic scenes where I got the sense they were an actual couple. Or to quote another Train song (yes, I'm a fan) "let's skip the how you been and get down to the more than friends at last", not to have left me high and dry, (pun intended ;-) all sexually deprived. They do the business once and the guy's flakey throughout the bk and then he wants to get married?!? No, no, no.

I liked Marco and Alyssa, it's just their characters/story didn't have enough time for a believable HEA.

Yet another amazing work from the lovely Laura Kaye. I fricking love Marco and Alyssa so much. I started this story at around 2pm my time today and it is now 10pm I just couldn't put it down. From the first chapter I was completely sucked in. As an author myself I feel like a hack when I read something as amazing as this.

The only complaint I have is the story ended too soon I so got the end and I was like oh I want more this can't be finished yet. This is another work that will be going on my to be re-read list

As with any book by Laura Kaye, there's a hot, sexy hero, lots of angst, and a heart-felt romance. You just can't go wrong with a story by Laura Kaye--and Her Forbidden Hero is no exception! I will write in more depth when I have time, but suffice it to say, this book is a sexy romp that's enticing from beginning to end! Her Forbidden Hero

I'm forever attracted to themes in a story where two have grown into adulthood with a close bond that connects them for eternity from their childhood upbringings together. It just makes their love that much more unbelievably genuine. And this relationship between Marco and Alyssa is no different...incredibly beautiful love affair!!!

Months after Marco returns home from his service in the Army Special Forces Unit, he maintains a quiet and secluded life. Because of his inhabitability to cope with life caused by his injuries in Afghanistan, he keeps himself isolated from others; until Alyssa walks back into his life.

Seeking employment after her college graduation at Marco's place of employment, Whiskey's Music Roadhouse, Alyssa immediately has attracted the hearts of all those around her, except Marco (the only man she has ever loved). He continually pushes her away for fear she may discover that he is flawed and not worthy of her friendship. His many torments, anxieties, and nightmarish demons, have him reacting to her negatively. And in doing so, he continually hurts and breaks her heart.

By far, it is not an effortless passage for either of them, but it is well worth the journey. For you see, when Marco finally realizes his unqualified, unconditional love for Alyssa, he goes to the ends of the earth to try and capture her heart. There is just so much compassion, friendship, and honest, sincere, undying love each have for one another that it truly makes them one in being...breathtaking!!!

Truly an endearing story. Its appeal is the main characters and their past connection--alluring storyline; Marco's imperfections--a true hero; and the overwhelming passion Marco and Alyssa emanate off the pages with a to-die-for happy ending...absolutely fantastic read! Highly Recommend!
