“We will be together. But at what cost?”
Jodi Ellen Malpas gives one addictive read with The Forbidden. Taboo for some, crack for others and this one was definitely crack. Car crash reading where you know that the proverbial s**t will hit the fan and the question isn’t when…it is how far will that s**t fly? This was a book that I couldn’t put down, where my hands were over my eyes, dreading what would come next, but knowing it would make for entertaining reading.
“If I ever lay eyes on you again, Annie, I can’t promise I’ll do what’s best and walk away next time.”
This would have been a solid four star read for me had it not been for the predictable shenanigans towards the end of the book. I saw it coming a mile off and knowing the talent that Jodi Ellen Malpas is I would have thought it would have ended a bit more creatively. However, while predictable I still enjoyed it, loved the characters and the pacing was perfect.
“Because everyone wants what they can’t have.”
Annie was an up and coming architect who had landed her dream job. Annie worked hard and worked harder, no time for play at all in her ninety-hour weeks. Annie had sworn off men and relationships, she had no time to give and not one man in her nearly thirty years had ever turned her head, she was beginning to think there was something wrong with her.
On a night out with her friends though, the unthinkable happens, the unexpected, the unwanted…a man turns her head, gives her butterflies, the chemistry sizzles, the attraction is off the charts and Annie has finally met her match…they certainly burned like one.
“A match made in heaven.” I don’t allow myself to fall.
This is The Forbidden, yes it does contain cheating so for those that shy away from these types of read then this is not the book for you. However, if you have an open mind, this was a novel take, it had a certain uniqueness to it that I have only read about once before. You never know what goes on behind closed doors and people are often quick to judge but sometimes all is not as it seems.
“Are we supposed to let that person pass on by, turn away from someone who finds your soul and kisses it.”
I loved the camaraderie between the friends and the connection between Jack and Annie was utterly believable. The dialogue was a little samey in places and the push and pull certainly validated the untenable situation that these two found themselves in. As I said above, this book was addictive, I couldn’t put it down and while around the eighty-odd percent mark there were quite a few eyerolls, I was still invested. So, while I didn’t love, love this one, I nearly did.
