You’ll only ever have one forbidden love.
Care to know why?
Because when you find it, forbidden love that is, you’ll forget everything else. You’ll forget your first kiss. You’ll forget the first boy who made you smile. You’ll forget all the bad, and remember all the good. You’ll forget that it’s wrong.
You’ll forget that it hurts. You’ll forget everything that came before him.
Forbidden love, it has a way of changing you. The secrets. The lies. The guilt. You want something so much you no longer care about the world around you. The passion takes away the pain. I’ve felt it. I’ve lived it. I didn’t need it, but it chose me.
I met him before I knew. I loved him before I knew.
I didn’t know that he was my stepbrother. I knew I had stepbrothers, but I didn’t know he was one of them. Now I know, I have to walk away. My mom, she deserves this happiness so much more than I do. If she ever knew…it would destroy her.
You have to understand why.
I saw my father die right in front of my tiny, eight year old eyes. He took my sister with him. All that’s left is my mother and I. She’s found her happy place, the only place she’s had since our worlds were destroyed.
So you see, I can’t have him.
I can’t want him.
But there’s this problem with passion, and love, and destiny.
It doesn’t give you a damned choice.
🔷🔹 TSC REVIEW🔹🔷
When I first read the synopsis, I was a little hesitant to read the book. There seems to be
an abundance of step-sibling romance stories at the moment. But this is by Bella, and I love everything
Im so glad I didn’t pass this one up.
Aria is is beautiful, smart, and constantly trying to bury the pain of losing
her dad and sister. She’s getting ready to go to college and study medicine. After 11 years, her mom has finally moved on with a nice guy, who has three sons. But Aria doesn’t want to let them in.
Blade is nothing short of the most delicious man. Strong, caring, protective over those in his
circle. But he doesn’t do feelings. Not after seeing his parents marriage fall apart.
I love the way Bella writes this story. It’s in a Now/Then format, and it’s very easy to follow.
I love getting glimpses of the past at certain moments of the book, and seeing how it relates to that time. The connection between Blade and Aria is potent, as is their struggle to do the right thing.
I love watching the relationships between Aria and the other two brothers – Brody and Ripley – develop.
I loved this book so much, I read it in 5 hours. There are some incredibly steamy sex scenes, and equally tender moments.
Bella has promised that Brody’s story is next, Im looking very forward to it!
