35 to 4 StarsI was very excited for this book I liked it but I did not love itThis is a forbidden love story with twists and turns you will not expect If you are looking for unicorns and conventional happily ever afters this is not for youLilly is married but her life is anything but joyful Her husband Rory doesn t make her happy despite her safe gilded cage There is no spark in her heart for him She simply tolerates himWhen Bobby Rory s brother comes back from the dead her world explodes All the feelings she once held for him are still very much alive The attraction and love is mutual The
Affair Is Forbidden And Dangerous is forbidden and dangerous will that hold them back Nothing can emain a secret for long Will they survive fate s wrathWhat I loved I loved the way the heroine wanted than just to be a perfect wife I loved her inner thoughts Bobby I loved him He was the fun brother The one who sacrificed his life for Rory He is my favourite in this bookI even had sympathy for Rory Most of the things he did were because of his weakness and knowledge that he was not good enough for LillyWhat went a bit wrong for me was that I could not connect with the heroine at all That made the story fall flat for me I get where she was coming from but her story did not speak to me in the way I expected I felt that a lot of the things she went through could have been avoided if she had made better choices when she had the chance The writing itself was good and the book picked up pace after the 80% mark for meOverall this was a
