I know these reviews are long awaited and I’m sorry!! That’s what I get for putting off my summer work until the last minute. For that I’m apologizing and going to give you TWO reviews instead of one!
So the first book up for review is Forbidden by Syrie James and her son, Ryan M. James.
She should not exist.
He should not love her.
Claire Brennan has been attending Emerson Academy for two years now (the longest she and her mom have remained anywhere) and she’s desperate to stay put for the rest of high school. So there’s no way she’s going to tell her mom about the psychic visions she’s been having or the creepy warnings that she’s in danger.
Alec MacKenzie is fed up with his duties to watch and, when necessary, eliminate the descendants of his angelic forefathers. He chose Emerson as the ideal hiding place where he could be normal for once. He hadn’t factored Claire into his plans. . . .
Their love is forbidden, going against everything Alec has been taught to believe. But when the reason behind Claire’s unusual powers is revealed and the threat to her life becomes clear, how far will Alec go to protect her?
Forbidden is able to grab the reader’s attention within just a few seconds. I mean how many people wouldn’t want to have a forbidden love??? Though preferably not the one like Romeo and Juliet. Hopefully nobody has to die! 😉
Claire is just regular girl trying to fit into a regular town and be able to have a place she can say she lived in for longer than a little while. She just wants to stop moving around. All her life her mother has dragged Claire around from city to city.
Alec wants to get away from the life he has been living. What can be further away from his former life than living a normal life at Emerson? it’s not like anything can happen there.
The one thing Alec didn’t expect was Claire joining Emerson. When these two meet, worlds collide. Literally.
I really loved the characters in this book. I mean they all have just the right amount of brains, humor, and their own little quirks to where you could just picture the way they would say some things or reply to others.
Unfortunately these two reviews are going to split up into two different post just because the first day of school is tomorrow for me and I need to get some sleep.
Wish me luck,
