Two men. Both brothers. One life-changing decision.

I made my choice. One perfect weekend assured me I was right. One set of pictures proved me wrong.

2 Star!
Gonna make this short

Where do I begin?

Do I start with the women who seriously doesn't know what to do with herself, or with the guy who seriously needs to fuck himself?

I'm seriously disappointed.

Nothing really happened in the book, but the story was...."cute" (okay, that's such a wrong word for this story, but when you read it, you'll understand). I don't regret reading it, frankly it was worth reading. What started out as a teacher-student book turned out much different. What I'm still struggling with though, is their age. I still don't know how old the characters is?:O It might have been mentioned, but I must have missed it, because I'm clueless. Anyone who knows?

Let me start by saying that I read this installment to the trilogy twice already. Why? Well, two reason ... I heart this story soooooo hard and I hated it was over so I just re-read it! LOL

This has been one of the most intense stories I have had the pleasure of reading. And not just because there were so many twist and turns to the journey, but because J.C. Valentine has a style to her writing that just grabs you and won't let go. There hasn't been a story I have read yet that I have not dev

FALL FOR HIM by J.C. Valentine is Book Three in the Forbidden Series. This continues the story of Rebel, Josephine 'Jo" and Ransom. You really do need to read the previous books to fully enjoy this one. This book picks up where we left off with Jo trying to deal with what she found out about Rebel. Trying to put the two men behind her she is starting a new job but Rebel isn't giving up on her. In this book we see Jo and Rebel getting closer. Ransom is left on the sidelines after what he had done ...more

The story started with Joe sorting out the mess in her life, one small step at a time. That earned her brownie point from me. The fear of rejection and judgement made her keep the nature of her job and the truth about her personal life a secret from her best friends, Brody and Annie. Finally trusting them and letting them in made her feel free and loved, so different from the outcome she was expecting.

If only the road to a smooth-sailing lovelife was just as easy. Joe has chosen the guy she want
I'm sad I finished this book and series, do not mistake my meaning, I loved the whole series, I 'm just going to miss Rebel, Ransom and Josephine, the whole series of books has been an incredibly hot , sexy roller coaster ride .
Ms Valentine manages to capture you in the web she weaves with her storytelling and you find yourself taking the same emotional rollercoater rude as your heroine, and if you have been following along you know Josephine has been on one hell of a ride. With that said , thi

Fall For Him (The Forbidden Trilogy Part 3) by JC Valentine

Josephine Hart has a big problem, she found out she is sleeping with twin brothers. The brother she thought she wanted Ransom turns out to not be what she thought at all.

The pull she feels for his brother Rebel is undeniable. Rebel was the one from the start she just needs to allow herself to admit she wants him and needs him and that she can truly trust him.

She has had so much disappointment and heartbreak in life, it’s hard for Joe t

Fall for Him is the third installment in the Forbidden Trilogy and is told from the POV of the main character Josephine (Joe) as she navigates her life after the events that ended the second book Lie to You.

It’s recommended that before you read this one, you go back and read the first two books in the series as they are pertinent to unde

Fall for Him was a good conclusion to Joe and Rebel's story. An unlikely pair with a very confusing and crazy start, this book gives the closer I needed. They settle into their situation and learn to make it work as a couple.

There's so much growth in Rebel between Dance for Me and the end of this book.

The Forbidden Trilogy was a great story of two strangers meeting under unexpected circumstances and all the trysts, surprises and emotions that results.

I was given an ARC for my honest review!
I was so excited to finally know what was going to happen in this final book. It was a wonderful ride. I was so looking forward to knowing what happens since Lie to Me ended so hurtful for Joe.
This book was such an exciting book all the way around. The relationship with Joe and Rebel was fun, passionate, and unknowing.
I love how JC wrote this book by answering all the questions I had throughout the first two books. She did an amazing job with this series.

To be honest, I had a hard time getting into this book but I'm glad I stuck it out. At first I was a little turned off by Rebel's aggression. Poor Joe was constantly being told what to do and couldn't stand her own ground. However, as I got further into the story Rebel's intentions were relieved and things well into place. I look forward to reading more books by J.C. and would love a story about Ransom.

In other words, the struggle is real for this young college grad. Determined to overcome her latest traumatic episode at the hands of the man she has irrevocably fallen for, Joe is set on getting her life back on track. Gaining the support and friendship f

Finally we get to the conclusion of the story, we get our questions answered in this web of mystery that is Rebel and Ransom.

I really hate to see this series come to an end. It easily became one of my most anticipating reads and favorite series. JC Valentine gave us everything. Mystery, angst, love, heartbreak, secret identities, and it all just made a full circle that ended as best as it possibly could. I loved every minute. Getting more of the rocky relationship that is and always has been Joe and Rebel plus Random, it was exhausting and exhilarating. I loved seeing a softer side to Rebel. I did

I received this book as an ARC in return for my honest opinion.

JC Valentine has truly out done herself again! The forbidden series has simply blown me away! Falling for Him- Book #3 in the series was the perfect conclusion to an epic trilogy.

Falling for Him IS BOOK #3 in the series and should NOT be read as a stand alone. All the books in the series build from each other and the first two end in nail biting cliff hangers that will have you begging and pleading for more. I highly recommend purc

The cliff-hanger at the end of the previous book should have been enough warning of what was to come, I mean there was no way picking up from that, was not going to be a belter of a story and Joe and Rebel did not disappoint, this was exceptional.
The story evolved so much as it secrets were divulged, mysteries uncovered and answers revealed but most of all as Rebel and Joe (Josephine) grew together and found themselves in a beautiful relationship, one that showed and encompassed thei

Well, I have to say that J.C. delivered with the last book in this series. I loved it and I am so happy that we got more of Rebel, Ransom and Josephine! I was so heart broken by the way things were left in book 2! I was hoping we would get to see where all this went for Josephine, who so deserved a happy ending after all she had been though.

Josephine is a young woman fresh out of college that has had a rough life and not been given too many chances, but has made the best out of what she has been

This series...

My goodness, this series.

As I hadn't read the previous two books, I was given the opportunity to read the series in it's entirety and while it's no secret that this is a trilogy, and that you need to read the first two before starting the third, I am the type of person who will often say "You can get by without the first ones".

And while, yes, that is semi-true in this instance -- the build-up... the suspense... the ques

WOW!!! Have you ever read something that ended the way you had hoped? To read about every bump and hard place that each character goes thru. Their heartbreak, betrayal, love, passion, sadness, and happiness. When an author can get you so wrapped up in the story that it just pulls you in, it is truly what makes a good book. JC Valentine has done an outstanding job with this series. By the end I was in love with Josephine, Rebel, and Ransom (yes I said Ransom).

This is the 3rd and final installment to this very addictive series. You must read books 1 and 2 before reading this. I was hooked from the start. When everything came to light in book 1 I was shocked. Two twins?! Brilliant! And in the second book Joe had to figure out what her heart wanted Rebel or Ransom? Thank goodness it was Rebel because I was team Rebel for sure!

Now in Fall for Him she had to figure out what she was going to do about those pictures sent to her phone. She was heart broken

The only way to figure it out is the way she always does things..Head On.
A mistake in her past causes her to lose her best friend's trust. Somehow she needs to fix it all. She must be strong and bold if things are to get any better.

Feeling betrayed and not sure what to do next she decides to focus on the one relationship she can maybe repair the one she also needs the most right now the one with her best friend. An impromptu trip to Virginia and she heads home to lick her wounds with a crazy plot to beat Rebel at his own game.

First, I wish I could give this book more than five stars. It so deserves it. This is book 3 in the series, if you haven't read the other two books DON'T read this one until then. The author knows how to write and keep you hooked. All the questions you had will be answered in this book.

Joesphine has a lot of questions that need answered however she needs her friends to talk to. She needs to make a decision about Rebel and she also needs to figure out

This was one of my favorite trilogies and Joe and Rebel are one of my favorite couples. We were left with one hell of a cliffhanger at the end of the last book, and I couldn't wait to see where the author would take things. This book revealed the answers to the questions that we were left with in book 2, and it focused on the development of a beautiful relationship between Rebel and Josephine. Rebel is still a controlling, possessive, dominant alpha male, and I loved him even more in this book. ...more

I will now forgive J.C. Valentine for her cliffhanger. I thought that I knew what was going to happen and who was behind it. I was so wrong. Fall for Him was worth the wait. Rebel and Josephine have a true connection despite the obstacles that seem to tear them apart. They are one of my favorite couples. This book has drama, mystery and so many twists and turns that it is hard to know what’s right and what’s wrong.
