And the Ride Continues!
In this sequel to Angela Ford's Closure, where we were taken on a wild ride of action packed suspense, the ride begins again. Just when you think it's over, look out, because you're in for another dose! Jess is now the head of The Internet Security Task Force. She & Tom are now married and have a sweet and enviable relationship. This is a quick, exciting, sit on the edge of your seat read with a surprising twist! If you read Closure you will certainly want to pick this

Another great story by Angela Ford!

I was gifted with Forbidden to help create the trailer, and boy was I excited! I couldn’t even wait until the day was done, I propped up my kindle, and started it while making dinner:)

It’s a quick read, but so worth it! If you read Closure then you will definitely want to read Forbidden. Its packed full of excitement, and intrigue, and I loved reading about Jess and Tom again… so sweet:)

The ending was one I was not expecting! I hope to read more books by Angela

Seriously I am beginning to think this author needs to have warning labels on her novels that dare to begin this without being prepared will result in anguish if you try to leave the novel before finished. Don't know why I did not expect it having read the first one only knew this one was going to be a good one. As I begin I say to myself oh no she has done it to me again with this making it two times in a row with her novels. Jess has begun again to suck me in as I read how her and Agent Mike a ...more

I just finished reading Forbidden. It is the Sequel to Closure written by Angela Ford. Jessica finds herself involved in a case that gives her a chilling sense of deja vu. Her gut tells her that the young girl involved may be in serious danger. Can she prevent what her gut is telling her from coming true? Can she protect the girl like her parents tried to protect her at that age?

I really loved this book. Like Closure, it was like reading an episode of Criminal Minds. I can’t wait to get my hands

Forbidden was a nail biting book. It picks up about a year after the end of 'Closure'. Jess and Tom are now happily married. Tom stepped down as supervisor of the team and trains for the FBI academy, and Jess was placed in Tom's supervisory position. After one of the teams Internet safety awareness training for parents, Mr and Mrs Bennett express their concerns for their daughter. They explain what they know and tell Jess about the changes they have seen in Tiffany and give her copies of the onl ...more

SA Jessica Rosario is back! Since her last big case was finding the man who stalked her when she was a teenager and then murdered her parents (CLOSURE), she has married her boss, Tom Erickson, although he is no longer her boss; he is an FBI trainer.

I really enjoyed reading Forbidden. The idea of Internet Predators is occurring all over the world. It is a subject you are hearing more and more about. Agent Jessica Resario gives seminars all over the world introducing parents to cyber safety. Along the way, she meets Tiffany's parents who are concerned about her. Tiffany has all of the signs of having an Internet Predator. Jessica starts an investigation and with her team discover some very interesting information and facts about the Predator ...more

Another take along beach read. "Forbidden" picks up where "Closure" left off. It was an action packed sequel, just as the first. FBI Profiler Agent Jessica Rosario a year later has a new life on and off the job. A new case brings back memories of the past she thought was behind her. This is a fast paced story with excitement as you turn the page. You are able to visualize and see the turn of events as they happen.

To be honest I would not place this book under the Romance genre, though there is

I was given this book as a gift and I must say that this is an amazing continuation of Angela Ford's first book, Closure. In the second of this series, Forbidden, we find Supervisory Special Agent, Jessica Resario, continuing her job with internet security. This is a quick read, but very well worth it. Forbidden is packed with practical information for today, especially on the topic of internet stalkers. Teens aren't the only ones at risk...we all are.

Ms. Ford hits the ground running with the fast-paced sequel to Closure. Jessica Rosario and Tom Erickson, the protagonists from Closure are back and married, although this is really Jessica's story and Tom is a support characters. All their FBI friends are also back. The team is still working internet stalkers/predators, especially those preying on young people using social media sites.

In Forbidden, Angela Ford has written another suspense-filled story with the sequel to her first book, Closure.
Now married to her former boss, Tom Erickson, San Francisco FBI Agent Jessica Resario heads up the Internet Security Task Force. Jessica is as focused as ever on the safety of teenagers that use chat rooms on the Internet, and tracking down their predators.
The similarities of her latest case—the stalking of a seventeen-year-old girl—sometimes reminds her all too much of her own stalker

I recieved the book from the author for an honest review.

This is the sequel to Closure. Jessica (Jess) is head of the ISTF. After giving a presentation on internet safety to parents, a couple approach her and they are worried about their daughter who has been talking to an older man on the internet.The team decides to look into it. From that point on there is non stop suspense and action. it is a short read and does have an abrupt ending, which leaves it open to another book.

Patricia Maia (The Bookery Review)
Exciting, suspenseful and intriguing... A great book!

The story of this book is pretty actual, because its about internet stalkers and all that can happen to teenagers that have the world of internet to themselves.

The end seemed to me like a bit of a Cliffhanger... oh well maybe I just want to know what will happen to Tiffany and Amanda and Mike!

I haven't read Closure, but after reading Forbidden, I want to know what happened to Jess and how she met Tom. I loved these characters!

Ok Angela Ford is killing me with all these well written and imaginative books! Yet again another action packed book! I started reading and I couldn't put it down.I just love Jessica Rosario and Tom Erickson best team ever. They must solve a case involving another teenager with a stalker similar to jess' s own stalker. Could the new stalker be working with hers? I think you will have to read to find out?!

Book notes: 131 pages told primarily from the heroine's POV, but there are a couple of very brief POV changes to other characters.

The premise of Forbidden is a good, powerful one, especially with the advent of today's technological advances making online preying of children easier than ever.
Jessica Resario-Erickson is an FBI agent dedicated to protecting and defending the rights of these children. It's a job that hits extra close to home for her as she was once a victim too.

This story continues from Closure and once again I was captivated and on the edge of my seat as the mystery and suspense continued to unfold. The plot twist kept me in constant suspense and the pages turning. I love this fast-paced action pack story. Beware, you will be drawn into this story and its emotional roller coaster ride! Just when you think you are safe, a danger is lurking in the shadows.

I read them the wrong way around but that is okay. Jess is a FBI that lost her family to a stalker when she was younger and she will do anything to make sure that it doesn't happen to other families. Jess is married to Tom another FBI agent but he is older and the love of her life. Jess & her team have picked a new case regarding a male stalker that is preying on young girls.

A great mystery/suspense, and a quick read!
Even though this was a quick read, it has plenty to read about. Jess is a special agent with ISTF. She encounters a teenager who is stalked online, the same as she was as a teenager. You can read about that in the first book, Closure. Her husband, Tom, is genuinely supportive of her and her job, as he was once in that position. Does this teenager, Tiffany Bennett, along with her parents, realize the extreme danger she is in. This case brings back painfu

Forbidden by Angela Ford...Oh my...I was on the edge of my seat all the way through this book. This story is filled with suspense/mystery, you can't put it down until you have finished. Jessica and the team do an amazing job finding the criminals. Angela Ford just keeps getting better, love her writing style. I highly recommend this book or any book by her. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

The 2nd book in the FBI series had Jessica and the FBI Internet Security team tracking more online stalkers of teens. The team also appear with great character & plot development. It's deja vu all over again as the new case mirrors Jess's story. This second book does not disappoint with its fast action & suspense that are maintained throughout. I was given a review ARC & loved it.
