Publisher's Summary

Shelton Morrison has a strict and fast rule about not getting involved with his tenants. He doesn't do it. It's bad for business. But, his latest tenant is definitely testing his resolve. She isn't just living in one of his various rental properties, she's living in his upstairs apartment just a stairway away. Savina Savagar is tired of her overbearing, male dominated family. She's moved out and right into the upstairs apartment of her irresistible new landlord. Only, he seems determined to resist her. The more she gets to know him, the more she wants more than the friendship he is offering.

A series of excellence

Marla Josephs keeps bringing a smile to my face with each book that she writes. Forbidden, book 2 of the Reluctant series sucked me in very early on. Shelton was introduced to us in Reluctant, Fallon's brother/cousin, slightly immature. In this book, he has grown up and become quite a man. He does not become involved with his tenants..that is until Savina moves in. Savina comes from an over protective, male dominated family with a revolving door of these men. Talk about awkward moments! To say the least, this pack of men created quite the scene when Shelton confronted her about the men who were sleeping over her house. Love the humor and feelings that this brought out early on in the story. Savina is a very strong, in control, hard working woman who is ready to break away from all this stifling attention. Shelton is smitten and finally finds that he can't keep his hands off of her. I honestly love that this story includes so many emotions. We have the awkwardness of the masses of men, but that is just the beginning. That slight jealousy brought forth love, warmth, happiness, contentment, angst, pain, sorrow, stubbornness and a twist in the plot sure to throw you completely! I love this kind of book because it continually keeps you guessing while you learn and grow with these characters. Shelton struggled through this twist, and finally comes to a conclusion for his happily ever after..but is it too late? It is refreshing to have the characters actually work through a problem through communication and love. I can't get over how the couple matured together through this. And the menu..boy can Savina cook!

I enjoyed Fallon's return and her no nonsense advice. She is truly a breath of fresh air when it comes to helping her cousin and Savina through their crisis. And the banter between Fallon and Reid literally makes you smile.

DC Cole's narration of this book brings you right into their home, making you smile, ripping your heart out..he maintains a level of excellence with his performances making me seek his books out.
