Title: The Forbidden Man
Author: Elle Wright
Blurb: In Love With the Wrong Man
Sydney Williams has forgiven her fiancé, Den, more times than she can count. But his latest betrayal just days before their wedding is too big to ignore. Shocking her friends and family, she calls off the engagement. She walks out on Den . . . and into the arms of his brother, Morgan.
Known as a player, Morgan Smith has secretly spent years fighting his feelings for Sydney. When Den’s latest dirty deed leaves Sydney devastated, Morgan can’t stop himself from coming to her rescue. What begins as friendship quickly escalates into all-consuming passion. Despite their intense connection, Sydney would rather deny her desire than come between brothers. But as Morgan is determined to make Sydney his, Den won’t give her up without a fight . . .
Thoughts: I am a sucker for ‘forbidden’ books…. especially when they feature a girl that falls for the brother of her significant other. I just find the angst between the characters so captivating, and the sexual tension – one that isn’t ‘allowed’ – just extra sexy. Sure, at times I was quite annoyed at Sydney’s tolerance of ex-fiancé, Den – particularly after what all he put her through. I mean really – when is enough just enough? Personally, his sorry butt would have been gone a long, long time ago! Not to mention his major selfish streak! But again, that’s part of what makes stories like this so great – the realism contained within the pages. While personally, I wouldn’t be so easy to forgive and forget, there are people like that out there in the world….who keep forgiving the unforgivable….who keep giving chance after chance to people, only to be let down again. Another reason why I just loved this book.
I haven’t read a book by Elle Wright before, but after this one I can honestly say that I definitely would again! If this kind of elicit tale is something you enjoy, then you can’t go wrong with this one.
