Forbidden is my favorite book ever. I had a huge lump in my throat from start to finish. It’s depressing, but also so beautiful. The first paragraph alone perfectly captured the feelings of the whole book – the suffocating feeling of being trapped in an impossible situation.
I know some people might shy away from from the book due to the taboo element. If you can get over that, just know it wasn’t written to glorify the situation. If you can handle it, go read it! lol!
★ Book Details ★
She is pretty and talented – sweet sixteen and never been kissed. He is seventeen; gorgeous and on the brink of a bright future. And now they have fallen in love. But… they are brother and sister.
Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As defacto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their lives—and the way they understand each other so completely—has also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: a love this devastating has no happy ending.
