Delaney Hart has come a long way from her wild youth, dating tattooed bikers at her father's bar, The Bad Seed. But when his death pulls her back to Wildwood, California, she must stay to renovate the dive he left her. And also face the lies and secrets that sent her running ten years before.
When Wildwood's chief building inspector, Ethan Hayes, shows up on the property, Delaney doesn't recognize him. The last thing he wants to do is save the bar where his cousin died in a brawl. But the good boy from her past is all too willing to remind her of the bad girl she used to be. And one night of passion leaves them both in a compromising position.
The last place Ethan should be is in Delaney's bed. Guilt, family pressure, and plans for a brewpub of his own make shutting down The Bad Seed his top priority...until his feelings for Delaney interfere. Because her future depends on the success of the bar's renovation and his dreams are rooted in its failure, their forbidden romance may be destined for heartbreak.

Forbidden is not always a bad thing!!!

Forbidden Fling by Skye Jordan
I appreciate the ability to listen to a book while on a long drive.
Delaney Hart. She had confidence to spare.
I liked the scene where Ethan's grandfather reads him the riot act about how he's being selfish.
FORBIDDEN FLING, the first book in Skye Jordan's Wildwood series starts the series off strong. This opposites attract story about the bad girl who shakes everyone up when she comes back to town, including all-around good guy, Ethan Hayes. As the title alludes, these two are not just opposites, a romance... or even a fling, between them is pretty much taboo and literally forbidden by some who believe they have the right to intervene. But Ethan has always had a thing for Delaney Hart even when she never even looked his way back in the day... so not her type. This good guy not only has it bad for the Delaney, he's got a naughty side (and a delicious dirty mouth) and she can't resist, but falling in love isn't something either of them planned on.
There's all kinds of drama in this one and for much of the book I was admittedly wondering how this impossible situation could ever work out well for anyone. But Ms Jordan worked some magic and pulled off an incredible story. Well written and paced, fully-developed characters, some scorching hot sex scenes, and one tough woman who takes on City Hall despite all the odds against her. I listened to the audiobook version and enjoyed the narrator's performance. 4 stars
