Publisher's Summary

When Lady Eleanor Sotheby unexpectedly enters the life of Jayne Clark, a 23-year-old waitress from Wichita, Kansas, Jayne's world is turned upside down. Not only is she welcomed into a family that she never knew, but she is thrust headlong into the highest strata of European society. Nothing is too grand in the fairy-tale lives of the uber-rich - the spectacular seaside villas, the sleek chauffeured limousines, the outrageously expensive designer clothes.
When Jayne plays her part and learns to fit into this new world, she meets Robert Astor, the man of her dreams. But her feelings for Robert are forbidden. Jayne's heady new life begins to unravel into a dark web of deceit, domination, and greed, and she ultimately finds herself confronting an evil that truly has no limits.

What made the experience of listening to Forbidden the most enjoyable?

It was written in true Mike Wells style...suspenseful...and awesome....a story that keeps you listening....I absolutely love his writing!!

What other book might you compare Forbidden to and why?

I really cant compare it, its kind of a mystery/romance/thriller all wrapped into one!!!

Which scene was your favorite?

When Jayne gets into the safe and discovers the truth!!!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes!!! I was totally on the edge of my seat...I did laugh a few times and felt so bard for Jayne and Robert..and also Celeste...she was a victim also!

Any additional comments?

** I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **

WOW!! I kind of knew this was going to go downhill after the Paris visit, especially with a person like Eleanor....she had NO redeeming qualities....she was selfish even as a young girl...yes she did endure some abusive situations...but those can either make you stronger or contribute to who you will become...and not always in a good way...that is that persons choice...Well Eleanor's choice was to become a bad person...manipulative...conniving...a liar and a murderer! She was cruel to both her daughters and in return Celeste became a selfish girl too...Jayne was raised she had a heart and a conscience!

Jayne is reunited with her long lost bio mom and learns she has a twin sister...she visits them in Paris and learns her sister is pregnant...she is engaged to be married and Robert her fiance can not find out...they devise a plan that Jayne will pretend to be Celeste and take care of her sister during her pregnancy to keep it secret..and her mother will pay her as if she was staff...Jayne needs the money desperately because her adopted mom has cancer and is getting chemo...Jayne's mom manipulates and lies to Jayne the whole time...steals from her and blackmails her...Jayne isn't stupid though and discovers her evil moms secrets..and in the end she is the winner...but I don't think this stories done...Knowing Mike Wells...I think he has something sneaky up his sleeve for us here...and I cant wait to find out what it is!!!
