Book Review: Forbidden

When Sophia St. James learns that she’ll be moving from Los Angeles to a podunk town somewhere in Connecticut for her senior year of high school, she isn’t expecting an otherworldly encounter. But there is more to Haven Hurst than meets the eye: it’s home to a family of Guardian Angels, and she is the only one who can see them in spirit form. Sophia soon realizes she wants to see much more of Michael, an irresistible yet volatile Guardian who seems drawn to her too.

As Michael battles his forbidden desire for the beautiful young newcomer, one of Hell’s most notorious Demon Knights arrives. Handsome and charismatic, Dante has come to claim the reincarnated soul of his lost lover trapped in Sophia. Cursed with the demon of Persuasion living inside him, Dante will use his seductive charms to lure Sophia into a dangerous game that ends with the kiss of death—unless Michael, who has captured Sophia’s heart, can now capture her soul.

One of my favorite genres is the Young Adult because there is a plot without a lot of unneeded sex scenes that take up word count.  I wasn't that impressed however by FORBIDDEN.  I found that the plot was way to slow and full of teenage angst.  Not my cup of tea at all.  

I can see however where it would attract its intended audience of teenagers and preteens because it is well written.  The characters are fully fleshed out and all have their own agendas.  So while I wouldn't recommend this book to my adult readers who enjoy the Young Adult Genre, I would recommend it to young adults.

*** I received this book at no charge from NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.  All opinions expressed within are my own.
