★5 Forbidden Stars! ★
"I won't loose you again. You're mine, Lillian."-Jacob
Forbid Me is the second book in The Good Ol' Boys Series and it was a thrilling read. Lily and Jacob were magical together and every moment with them was simply unforgettable.
"Have you ever wanted something so badly that it consumed your very being? Something that you could practically taste on your tongue. Something that was all you thought about, day in and day out?"-Lily
We met Lily and Jacob in the first book of the seriesComplicate Me. Lily is Lucas' younger sister and Jacob is Lucas' best friend. Following the theme of the first book in the series, we have a case of "forbidden love". Jacob is seven years older than Lily. Although he should be feeling "brotherly" love for her, when Lily blossoms into a young woman Jacob feels something completely opposite of what a brother should feel for a sister. Additionally, Lily is head over heels in love with Jacob. Can they ever find a way to overcome the age difference and the judgement of their family, and friends?
"Every time I pictured my future, it was always with Lily by my side."-Jacob
As Forbid Me shifts between the present and the past, we experience the developing friendship between Jacob and Lily and the undeniable attraction they share. Although Jacob tries to do the "honorable" thing, Lily is a vixen that will stop at nothing to be with him. The constant push and pull was invigorating with the intense sexual chemistry building and the continuous battle of the wills between Lily and Jacob! Perhaps one of the most refreshing elements of this read is the tenacity of Lily! Jacob makes plenty of mistakes and when he "comes back" to "claim her", he has to work for it! (Which, might I add, just made the chase even that more exciting!)
"His love fucking consumed me."-Lily
Both Jacob and Lily are complex characters with a great deal of heart! The fact that they must face circumstances that are continually ripping them apart only makes their reunion that much sweeter! To have a read where both the hero and the heroine are so well matched for one another is like winning the lottery! The passion between these two was smoking hot.
"I want you in my mouth, Lillian. I could taste you in my dream. I woke up knowing what I wanted for breakfast. I want you in my bed."-Jacob
Told in dual POV, Forbid Me offers a perfect blend of romance and steam. The supporting characters continue to play a vital role in the plot development and enhance each moment with their strong connections to each other. With a well constructed story arc, witty dialogue, and unforgettable characters, this is one read you do not want to miss!
"Just her. Always her."- Jacob
"Just Jacob. Only him."- Lily
Overall, Forbid Me is more than just a 5 star read. It is a "must drop everything on my TBR shelf" and "read it NOW"! I thoroughly enjoyed every second of it. I have already been back to my kindle to re-read my favorite scenes (several times). Additionally, I will be counting down the days for the next Good Ol' Boy to hit my kindle. Bravo M. Robinson! Bravo!
