Publisher's Summary

Life has been harsh, but after a horrible childhood, Park was finally content with her life. Her beautiful home sat on the edge of the Pacific Ocean in Los Angeles, she had her dream job, and good friends she trusted. Then she's abducted, car-jacked by a stunningly sexy man who she realizes is dangerously crazy... he thinks he's a vampire. Park plays along until she can escape, until she discovers that there are things out there people like her never knew existed. Life changed instantly in one night...vampires do exist and she herself is something more than she ever knew.
He'd been alive over three hundred years with little complications. But when Bas went to do a simple compel to get a ride on a busy street in L.A. late one night, he found the impossible... a human he couldn't compel. Only, after a taste, he knew... she was something more than human... something different. A complication and a mystery on a night all he wanted was transportation home and away from an enemy he wasn't prepared to fight...yet. He wasn't looking for her, anything like her, and yet he couldn't think about letting her go. Yes, he wanted to know what she was, and he needed to protect her from his enemy, but even more than that...somewhere deep inside an old battle-weary vampire, his human heart told him that the time may have come to feel love again.
Park had always thought she was broken... was never good enough... she'd been taught that often enough as a little girl who lived in the dark. But sometimes things have to fall apart so they can fall together the way they were always meant to be.

I want to be a First!

I like this book. It was really good. Full of action and adventure... I liked how Bas, the vampire, couldn't mind warp Park, the female lead. Park was all like "wait, you can't kidnap me..." while Bas was like "why isn't my mind warp working...." it was funny.

I like how the story played out. It was interesting to see all the pieces come together, and see the battles with the bad guys play out to.

Now the end... I am bit upset about what happen to Bas and Park's father's friend... Seriously... WTF!!!

This is worth a credit or sale. It's a bit pricey...over 10 bucks so I wouldn't recommend for a buy.

Narration was pretty good. Not wonderful but not horrible either.

If you could sum up Forbidden Days in three words, what would they be?

Interesting story start..

What other book might you compare Forbidden Days to and why?

Its a vamp story and PNR..there are many out there..this one is worth your time too!

Have you listened to any of Pyper Down’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Not that I know of, but she sounds familiar to me...I am beginning to think osmetimes narrators have alter egos too!

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

This would make an interesting movie for sure!

Any additional comments?

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

Park is a nerd girl..a science geek and does not have a very high opinion of herself...Her childhood was terrible and her mother is awful! Park gets away from her mother and childhood by going to college and learning all she can, so she can have a good life..One night she goes on a date and it doesn't go well, as she sits in her car to mourn her bad luck, Baz get's in and tried to compel her to take him to his home in Canada..he learns that Park is not a normal human and neither blood or mind control will work on her...and it all starts from there..Interesting start to a new series for me..It does have a first book feel..but it gets better and better as the chapters progress...and I will be moving on to book 2 right away!

Mildly Entertaining, Yet Rather Dry.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator sounds bored and very flat. Her voice is monotone and It was more akin to listening to a computer generated voice.

Would you recommend Forbidden Days to your friends? Why or why not?

I'd tell my friends that perhaps reading the book, rather than listening would be a better experience. Although somewhat predictable, the story itself wasn't a too bad.

Would you be willing to try another one of Pyper Down’s performances?

Maybe. I have found that an author tends to improve with time and experience.

Did Forbidden Days inspire you to do anything?

No, not really.

Any additional comments?

As for the story itself, the dialogue bordered on cliche, a little cheesy and predictable. The pacing was off and it lacked a good build up as well as the chemistry between the two main characters.

Overall, It was a little entertaining and I am a sucker for supernatural stories.
