Forbid Me Book 2 Good Ol' Boy series by Author M Robinson....

It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to this…
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take the burns and scars just to have the love of my best friend's sister.
If there is one person I’d willingly go to hell and back for it was…

~~~Dawn's Review~~~
So, I have been in a major reading funk which, as a blogger is a BIG problem. Nothing sounded good , I was not finding anything interesting, it all seemed the same. Then, this little beauty showed up on my kindle, a beacon of hope, if you will.  People, I can not come up with the proper words to describe the love I have for this book, Forbid Me by M. Robinson!

I'm going to start off with something a little different today, lets talk about the author. 
I believe I have read every book that M has written and her writing just gets better with each book! There are a few authors whom I feel write amazing dialogue and M. Robinson, is one of them. Her natural ability to write a conversation that I feel like I have had or could have keeps me reading and hanging on to each and every word.
 M, has this flow about her writing that is easy, smooth and effortless. I feel like I am right there in the room with these characters watching it all play out. 
I sometimes find that when an author who started out writing "erotica" often has a bit of an issue taming it down for a "contemporary romance"it sometimes takes away from the books intent, NOT the case here. This is a sexy story, without being over sexed or lacking in the sexiness. Does that even make sense? Well, my point is this is not lacking in any way shape or form. The story is AMAZING and My favorite in the Good Ol' Boys series!

Lets talk story and characters shall we? Okay we have met the boys in Complicate Me and honestly I have always loved me some Jacob. He has this massive heart and cares about everyone he is associated with. I just love him. He is a man on a mission, to get the love of his life matter the cost! He will fight her, he will take from her, he will never stop telling her how much he loves her and he will take every one of her "I hate you's" because he knows this is what it is going to take to make Lily understand that he is NOT GOING AWAY!
I mean it, I was devouring the back and forth, the past to the present. Honestly, that sometimes can be a problem for me, but not in this story. We got the background without it being this long drawn out story that over shadowed the "now" portion.  It was the perfect balance. 

Lily, I just can't even deal with my love for her, I feel like I know her. While reading this book I was constantly stopping and trying to place the person I was reading about, like she was one of my friends! I know I am rambling, but I just connected with Lily. She is a spitfire and talks a big game but can back it up. 
She knew what she wanted and that happened to be Jacob, her brother's best friend, problem #1, 
Oh and that pesky age difference, seven years, problem #2.
Lily was relentless in her pursuit of Jacob and that I found refreshing. Finally an aggressive leading lady, she wanted,what she wanted NOW and nothing was going to stand in her way, not even Jacob. We get to see Lily and Jacob's story unfold and it is not "taboo" or "perverted" in any way. It is a love that has grown over time and while it was not always a pretty story, it is what led them back to each other.
This for me was a story about a love that was always there, but interrupted, paused, put on hold. Jacob needed to see that he could live without Lily, but was he really living? And Lily, she needed to see that a life without Jacob was making her bitter and harsh and taking her away from family and friends that she loved. She held onto the hate and we all know, there is a thin line between love and hate. 

Each book in the Good Ol' Boys series is a standalone. I would suggest that you read Complicate Me first, just to get to know everyone. But it is not necessary. 

I am chomping at the bit to get Dylan and Aubrey's book. The epilogue in Forbid Me, holy hell... It definitely leaves you wanting more in this series!  

5+ Clocks for this Amazing book! Forbid Me
