Don’t you just hate it when someone destroys all your carefully made plans?

I mean, I had goals: college to graduate in one semester, a future I was working hard to reach, and an image of myself I wanted the world to see. My life was stacked into these precisely placed blocks. But then Colton Gamble came along and knocked them all askew.

I hated how he messed everything up, how he could hog all my attention whenever he was around, how he made my pulse quicken—but only because he ticked me off...not because I was attracted to him. Oh! And I hated how he knew how attractive he was too, the shallow, full of himself, doesn’t take no for an answer, too flirty, too cocky, extremely irritating jerk.

The boy had all the qualities that turned me off. Or so I thought.

One night he wasn’t quite the brainless, overconfident jerk I assumed he always was.
One night, he took care of me when I was at my lowest. He opened up to me and made me open up to him.

Now I’m learning maybe he’s not what I first thought he was. And maybe I’M not what I first thought I was. Maybe it’s okay to rearrange a couple of my perfectly set blocks. Maybe, just maybe, I’ll stop worrying about what I’m afraid everyone else will think and finally reach for something I really want. It’s possible some of my plans need to be destroyed, and Colton Gamble is exactly the kind of mess I need in my life.

What do you think? Should I give him a try?

Desperately seeking your advice,
Julianna Radcliffe


I have to say this... Forbidden Men might be one of my few favorite series that I will never get tired if more books keep coming out, I swear. These stories keep coming more real, more raw and so lovely and romantic that I really want to be one of these girls. These series have something of each pool of person, except latino, but I am ok with it. I'm afraid that there's no more and that makes me sad, but I am happy that I read them.

This story is about that little boy from the beginning called Colton. We meet him way back as a little boy of eight years, but now ten years has passed and he has become a hot as hell man... a Forbidden Man. And then, we have Julianna. We meet her back in Brandt's book, but brief. Now we meet her really good and let me tell you, she's fierce. The combination of these two was totally better than expected.

I loved all of it, from beginning to end. It was the perfect combination of sassiness, romance, action and sweetness and I love every second of it. I have said it before and I will say it now, this series is the shit. Everyone should read it. The best is that is that the series is not that short, but goes fast and everything is so well explained it that everyone will understand it and love it. I totally recommend it.
