Review: The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas

Publication Date: August 8, 2017 
Series: Standalone 
Rating: 4 Stars  

Official Blurb: 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. 

Review: This book is completely different from anything I have read by JEM. I knew already going in that it was going to be a dozy because of the title alone, but I don’t think my heart was prepared enough.

Annie meets Jack in a bar and these two instantly connect on a level neither were expecting. The chemistry is so strong that they are unable to stop the passion. It was only supposed to be one night, but of course that isn’t at all what happens. But what happens when they literally can’t stay away from each other?

This review is going to be hard to write because I don’t want to give away spoilers. Jack has a huge secret and in the beginning it was all on him, but then Annie finds out and of course she is okay with it. Not really, but it doesn’t stop their passion. There is so much in this book that happens, and I was completely torn so many times. Ugh… JEM really pulled my emotions all over the place. One minute I was up then I was down. I wanted to scream so many times.

The “forbidden” part didn’t bother me as bad as I thought, but the issues after the fact did. Certain situations of how Jack acts and Annie just being okay with everything and falling right back into the web made me completely annoyed and frustrated. And of course towards the ending literally had me wanting the throw my kindle across the room. The book ends really good, but it’s a struggle to get there that’s for sure.
