It was only a matter of time until the truth came out.
I never thought it would come to this…
I tried, God knows I tried to stay away from her but eventually I crossed that line and broke that trust. I could no longer go back and I sure as fuck didn’t regret a single moment of it. I knew there would be hell to pay, I knew the wrath I’d be facing but I would willingly take

Start your review of Forbid Me (The Good Ol' Boys, #2)
After reading 'Complicate Me', I couldn't wait to start the next book in the series. M. Robinson's stories have a way of sucking me in. Like it's predecessor, 'Forbid Me' proved to be an emotional, angsty story of forbidden love. I couldn't get enough.

'Forbid Me' is the story of Lucas's little sister, Lily and his best friend, Jacob. Much like half-pint, Lily has always been around the "Good Ol' Boys" for all of her life. Also like half-pint, she was very much "off-limits" to any of the guys. As

After reading Complicate Me, I had to get my hands on Lily and Jacob’s story. A brother's best friend story- which is one of my favorite types of stories to read. I love the forbidden aspect of these types of books. Lily and Jacob’s story started when she was 15. Jacob is 7 years older than she is. The problem isn’t just the age difference, no it’s much more than that. The problem is that Lily’s older brother, Lucas, is Jacob’s best friend. No matter how old Lily is, it will neve

❤❤Jacob & Lily❤❤

This is their story of then and now, the long uphill battle to get to their HEA, taking you to hell and back. It was never a question as to if they were meant to be, after all they are each others lobster, it was all just a matter of finding the right time.

For Jacob, his whole world was Lily, so when he turned his back and left, he left a piece of himself in her care...she just doesn't know it yet. She has his heart, his love and his soul;

“Hurting you is my biggest regret, loving you is my only redemption.”

Yes!!! Karma is a bitch, Jacob!!!
And yes, I'm still mad with Jacob because he was standing between Lucas and Alex, but damn me, i liked his story very much!!! Even though that he was a fuckin' hypocrite...

And why i'm saying that???
Well, this was the story of Jacob, one of Alex's Good Ol' Boys and Lily's, Lucas's baby sister who was seven years older than Jacob...

Do you see the irony here

Jacob and Lilly's story was everything I hoped for and more. Emotional and tender; this is the tale of a forbidden love, that was able to withstand time and tragedy, but only grew stronger inside the hearts of these amazing characters.

I have to start this with saying that although each of the books in this series focuses on a particular character and can probably be read as a stand-alone, don’t. Read them in order. One of the best part of this series is the buildup. Not just of the current book, but of the next one.

Now excuse me while I freak the fuck out.

The way Complicate Me ended, I knew one thing. I needed this book. Had to have it. Jacob has known Lilian since the day she was born. He loved her from the moment he saw h

I couldn't wait to read Jacob & Lily's story. Definitely a forbidden love, that I absolutely loved. This author takes you on another journey from birth to adulthood with that once in a lifetime love, however this one is quite unique with a 7 year age difference. It's beautiful, it's wrong, but it all comes together effortlessly, yet so gracefully. This read was a lot more easy to read then the prior book in the series, I felt it flowed a lot better with the way you were "then and now" reading. D
"Forbid Me" is the second book of the "Good Ol' Boys" series, and the author did a beautiful job at making sure that all of my pet peeves that were present in the first book are now gone in this one!!

This story is about Jacob (who is one of the group of boys that are good friends) and Lily; who is one of the other Good Ol' boys members baby sister. That being said, you can imagine that any kind of attraction between Jacob and Lily has to be hidden, not only because she is Lucas's baby sis; but

Have you ever wanted something so badly that it consumed your every being? Something that you could practically taste on your tongue? Something that was all you thought about, day in and day out? The feeling so intense that it becomes a part of you. You could feel it under your skin, in your heart, consuming your mind.
That was Jacob to me.

M. Robinson is quickly becoming a one click favorite in my love for angst department. I was completely blown away after Complicate Me and beyond rocked when the last written words set up a taboo love story for the ages. To say this book was highly anticipated would be an understatement.

While this book is a standalone, I would 100% recommend reading Complicate Me first to really know the boys and understand the connect

It’s unconventional to want a man seven years older than you, a man who is your brother’s best friend. Lily, Luca’s baby sister, has always been in love with Jacob. It was the first kiss between her, 15, and Jacob, 22, that sealed their fate… As their paths continued to cross, they couldn’t deny the attraction they both shared. The forbidden nature of their love marked Lily’s age of transition and tested Jacob’s stamina. Their love was legally and morally wrong but Jacob was mature enough to sex ...more

I fell in love with the 1st book in The Good Ol' Boys series but I didn't enjoy this 2nd one much.

I have 2 main reasons for that and my 2 reasons are both about the hero, JACOB...

1. This book is about Jacob, one of the boys who tried hard to keep Alexandra and Lucas (heroine & hero in Book 1) apart, telling Lucas that she was their friend so they should all see her as their "sister" and she deserved someone better. But with the biggest hypocrisy, he fell for Lucas's baby-sister who is 7 years yo
So I finished it but only because the prologue gripped me and I wanted to find out what happened next. Forbidden romance and falling for your besties little sister are usually right up my street, but sadly it didn't quite live up to its early promise.

My issues for anyone interested:

I understood this could be read as a standalone even though it's the second in the series, but it wasn't really a standalone I'm afraid. I think I missed too much back story and character history to make sense of th

I am a huge fan of forbidden romance so this one was right up my alley! And it was soooo good! I really enjoyed the first book in this series, Complicate Me, about Alex and Lucas, but I LOVED this one, the second book, Forbid Me, Lily and Jacob’s story.

Lily is Lucas’ little sister. Jacob is Lucas’ best friend. We met both of them in the first book and could already see the connection between the two. But, for years, the two fight their feelings for one another; it’s wrong, she’s too young, what

M. Robinson manages to do it again... Another amazing story and another glimpse into The Good Ol' Boys Series.

In "Forbid Me" , book two of The Good Ol' Boys Series, we meet Jacob. Remember him, one of Lucas' biggest cock blockers in "Complicate Me"? He's the oldest of the good ol' boys, the bossy one. My, my, my how the tables have turned in "Forbid Me".

"Forbid Me" picks up where "Complicate Me" left off, however, both can be read as standalone novels. In "Forbid Me" we get a good look into Ja

Forbid Me is the second book in the Good Ol'Boys saga by M. Robinson. We the reader are finally given Jacob and Lily's Forbidden Love Story!

7 Years......that is the difference in our ages. I am too old for her. It is too much when we are young but now....Now we are adults and to hell with what people think...what Lucas thinks. I am going after what is mine.

Too many "he was my core", "she was my core", to be followed by wishy-washiness. The h relentlessly pursues H, which is never a favorite trope of mine, and the H seems to respond well enough when h is in the room, but has no problem putting her out of mind when she is out of sight, moving on with his life (going to college, law school, dating, building his career) and there is zero evidence he is pining for her, aside from cheap words. The writing was unbearable to me. In just one paragraph, we ...more

I have to say that this book started out very strange and a little icky for me.


Stay with me, though, because it ends up being one of those romances that will have you clapping and smiling like a fool at the end;)

I really liked this " forbidden love" story.

I didn't read book 1 because it just seemed to angsty for me, to enjoy right now. Maybe I will try it at a later date.

Now this one was a bit angsty too, but not too much. I enjoyed the age gap...the forbidden part. It was very nicely done.

There will be some people who won't like the idea of a 22 year old being on love with a 15 year old, but I think the author did an amazing job with this subject.

The first book in the series left us right at a jaw dropping moment, so I wanted this one really bad!!
It did not disappoint!! Jacob and Lilly's story was awesome. They had a completely forbidden relationship on so many levels. Their being together was totally wrong but here I sat reading it rooting for them. My heart broke with every obstacle. Everytime I thought it would work for them something or someone threw a wrench in it!

Jacob and Lily! LOVE them!! The depth of the feeling and emotions they had were surreal. They were sooo real and relatable! I felt every feeling and emotion they had. It was intense, powerful, full of angst, captivating, intrigued, fun

Well it has happenend!!!! M.Robinson has outdone herself with Forbid Me!!! This book consumed my life from the first page until the end and yes I was still left wanting more!! This entire group of characters are absolutely amazing and suck you right into their lives!!!

Jacob and Lily....what can I say?? I freaking loved them, every single thing about them. Although their relationship is not easy and of course they have so many different o sticles, you can not deny their attraction and chemistry.
