4 Smooches!

a5 a3 a4 a1


A new story of dangerous temptations from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the This Man trilogy.

Annie has never experienced the ‘spark’ with a guy-that instant chemistry that renders you weak in the knees. That is, until a night out brings her face to face with the dangerously sexy and mysterious Jack. It’s not just a spark that ignites between them. It’s an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who’s had such a powerful impact on her must be dangerous. She has no idea that he belongs to another. That he’s forbidden.


Forbidden is another really well written, intriguing story by Jodi Ellen Malpas.  The words were good.  The story was fast paced and the sexy times were beyond sexy.  Honestly, cheater books aren’t my favorite and I knew from jump street I would be going into a cheater book as I’ve read the This Man series and it was one of my absolute favorites.

I was very excited about this book and the story did not disappoint.  It was well developed and even though I found the characters completely flawed I still really enjoyed the story.  Because love is messy.  It’s sometimes wrong even when It feels right.  And people ultimately make bad decisions because of it all the time.  While I did really like this book, I still didn’t love it as much as the This Man series.  Although I don’t imagine I’ll ever love anything at much as Jesse.  He’s a tough one to beat.
