What do you do when your brother, your twin, your other half betrays you?
Jack Griggs moved away from his home and family and decided to live a life without the women, booze and excitement – a dull, bland and boring life with just a bar stool for regular company.
Carly Sevens had her life planned out. Get a college degree, start a business and make her mom and dad proud.
Life had a different plan for both of them. They both agreed it was a mistake. They said it could never happen again.
He is her tutor, her mom’s best friend, the man she’s known since she was a little girl.
She is his student, his family friend, the girl he’s now seeing as a beautiful woman.
But when something feels so perfect, their feelings for each other shouldn’t be forbidden – right?
A secret forbidden teacher/student romance.
Jack is a tutor at the college, ten years older than Carly and with the added cherry, her mothers best friend, you could say "its complicated".
"Carly was the most delicious mistake I'd ever made, and that I couldn't get her out of my head was proof of that"..
"And that's how my brother found us. Me on my back with chocolate donuts on my dick"
A little bit about the plot;
Jack felt his life was mundane he went away from his small town to be a teacher at college and to hopefully find his purpose, what he found was his forever and a peace of home.
Carly now in college had known Jack most of her teen life, Jack and his brother Jake had grown up with Carly's mother Lacey who was also 10 years younger than her dad and although she had once called Jack her Uncle what feelings she had now were nothing like family love but more lust and a strong attraction, although they fought their feelings it was futile and being on the same campus they had to be careful and also when both family's who were all close discovered their relationship, shit would hit the fan.
There's fumbles in the storage closet and fun with food, forbidden is a hot and humorous read.
This is the fourth book in the series and I remember when Carly was first dumped on her fathers door step at the age of eleven which brought Lacey and Tommy closer together when he needed help, so seeing this development is heartwarming, finally seeing Carly finding love.
I found Jack was more the lead character he was the one in charge, he was funny, domineering and sweet, Jack was a hottie.
Carly I also liked her character, its funny I didn't see her as a little girl in Forbidden, this is a worry when a character has been in previous books at a younger age but I didn't feel that way about Carly at all she's a mature young woman who knows exactly what she wants and that happens to be Jack.
A brilliant story, my ideal kind of read that has a bit of everything I love. Forbidden contains drama, sizzling hotness and chemistry, angst, humour, Jack really did make me laugh at times and then there's the heartwarming moments.
A perfect contemporary romance and a perfect addition to this series.
Victoria Johns has once again brought me into the world of two characters that I feel like I have been on a journey with and I was sad when I had to let them go onto their happily ever after.
Told in first person dual pov and leads to a hea.
