Book Review: The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

The Forbidden
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.

The Forbidden is a emotionally gripping, taboo love story. It's intense from the beginning to end. The story revolves around the characters emotional struggle and acceptance. Their struggle is earnest which allows me to put aside any moral judgement. 

"Chemistry. A connection. Something I haven't experienced before."
Annie has never found a man who she connects with until she met Jack. She's immediately 'Thunderstruck' when they first lock eyes. Their connection is intoxicating. It was also suppose to be a one-nightstand. Until they meet again under unexpected circumstances and Jack's truth is revealed.

Annie is a strong woman. Her internal moral struggle is intense. She knows what's right from wrong but she struggles fighting against their chemistry and passion.

The author does a fantastic job letting us inside Annie's thoughts and reasoning. Her moral struggle is painful and heartbreaking. The story moves quickly building at an intense rate. The ending crushed me. Crushed me! I need more Annie and Jack. I would love an epilogue written in Jack's POV. 5 Stars!
