The Forbidden

By Jodi Ellen Malpas


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. 


The Forbidden made me question my conscience and beliefs.  Annie Ryan broke down my barriers and I was with her every step of this journey.  The story was told with all the ugly truths and it is not all hearts and roses.

Annie Ryan’s personality shone through in Drew’s Story in All I Am so I was looking forward to seeing her again.

First of all, Jack & Annie’s meeting in the bar, those first few chapters just sucked me in.  I was with them for the long haul and how could they turn away?  As Jack attends the house warming party I was blindsided by the revelations and I felt physically ill.

How can this author make me love Jack Joseph? On reflection, she made him human and not afraid to wear his emotions.  We simply do not know what goes on behind closed doors.

There is plenty of drama, Annie’s friend’s reactions are true and reflective of society and so they should be.  This is one topic I really struggle with but I found myself wanting to get to the end with Annie & Jack.

I loved the way the Author gave closure to all the characters, it left me totally satisfied.  The concluding few chapters were honest and my soul was fed like Annie’s was at her parents.

Quote:  Are we supposed to let that person pass on by, turn away from someone who finds your soul and kisses it?
