Synopsis: A SPIN OFF SERIES OF SHIFTERS FOREVER!

This one takes place in Europe, the original home of the Tiero shifters. We start our journey in the Eternal City—Rome.
Vax’s half-brother Rafe has it bad for Callie. He thinks that’s the kind of woman he needs.

If hot sex skeeves you out, you may want to pass on this book.
If freaky, downright dirty sexy talk bothers you, yeah, for sure you gotta pass on this one.
We believe in sex–hot, dirty, delicious sex.
Yup, make it sweaty, too. It’s not just sex, it’s about the romance.
But good romance has sex, and we keep the doors open! Oh, and the lights on! 😉

Bookish Things: 105 pages. The cover is eye-catching with that glorious tiger on the front.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $2.97 or paperback for $7.99

My Review: 

Forbidden is a short introduction to Elle Thorn’s Never After Dark series, a white tiger shapeshifter romance.

While the story takes a pretty tried and true course – impossibly handsome, but broody Adonis-esque Alpha male is single despite all odds and happens upon the perfectly normal, slightly unique and not model material woman who has no idea about shifters. They fall into bed together and then into mated love – and offers nothing new to the paranormal romance or shifter romance genres, the writing flowed well and was an easy read.

Despite the expected outcome and actions by the characters, I did actually like Jax, at least up until she didn’t bat an eyelid at something that should have caused even some sort of reaction.

Rafe is fairly generic alpha material, all animalistic and domineering, broody dark god that he is. He seems to be part porn star too, his ability to make Jax gush seemed a little too easy.

Overall this is an enjoyable, quick paranormal shifter romance with a little sexy time. Nothing groundbreaking or fresh, but still entertaining and engaging.

One thing I noticed:

22% – Chapter is at the top of the paragraph text.

**Note: I was given an electronic copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**
