The Forbidden by Jodi Ellen Malpas
What do you do when you can’t control your feelings for someone? When you know you shouldn’t go there? Not even in your head.
Annie has never experienced the ‘spark’ with a guy – the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It’s not just a spark that ignites between them. It’s an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.
Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who’s had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she’s already in too deep. And Jack isn’t only dangerous. He is forbidden.

‘Every kiss, every sexy scene, every word between this pair owned a piece of my soul. I could read this book a hundred times and still react as if it was the first time. The Protector is a top 2016 fave for me.’ Audrey Carlan, bestselling author of The Calendar Girl series
I think I was caught off guard with this one, because I started it in blind, meaning I have not read the title. This was given me as a present, so i hoped the one that picked it up, knew me.
Aaaaaand, damn… this was good. So good, that it is now sitting in my hot / books to re-read. I loved it. It intrigued me. It broke me, but i am not a newbie on Jodi Ellen Malpas, and I knew her heroes will deliver.
In regards to the hero being married, i’ll just drop this, because it might be a trigger or a fact someone might not want to read this: yes, he is married, but have faith because everything is not what it seems. So yes, if you like OW tropes, this one fits the bill, but I also would say someone who avoids cheating (like me) would finish it satisfied.
PS: the 1st chapter is HOT! I mean, i honestly think their connection and the scene of them is what kept me in.
