Three things in my life were fact.
I needed Sarah to survive.
I needed sex to remain sane.
And I could never mix sex with Sarah.

I just knew—deep in my marrow—that if I did, I’d somehow lose her. All my deepest darkest secrets would crack open, bleed out, and ruin everything between us. I wouldn’t unleash the shit inside me on my worst enemy, let alone her. So she stayed

“That boy is completely and irrevocably in love with you. He worships the ground you roll on. And it’s clear as day you love him back.”

This was such a beautiful, heartfelt friends-to-lovers romance!! I read it in one sitting and loved it! Originally, I was really drawn to this book because of how different their situation was. Brandt was this amazing swoony, sweet, sexy, charming, protective guy (trust me, he’s heart-melting!!!!!) who'd come from a re

Priceless is the eighth book in Linda Kage’s Forbidden Men series, and it’s by far one of my favorite. I truly loved this story so much! The only one I loved just a bit more was Pick’s book, because… Pick <3. Sarah and Brandt are two characters we meet early on in the series. Sarah is in the very first book. She’s Mason’s younger sister and she has CP. Brandt comes along in the next book. He’s one of Noel’s younger brothers. Brandt and Sarah become best friends when they meet in midd

Let me start by saying the beginning of this book was rough to read (view spoiler) and may have scared me a bit. So I have really been looking forward to Sarah and Brandt story and though at times it was very cute and though I loved both Sarah and Brandt I wasn't really feeling this book. I thought their connection would feel stronger like it felt in past books, but for the

I’m a huge fan of this author and this series and I felt that the author did a fantastic job with Sarah and Brandt’s story. I totally felt the emotional connection these two shared as young kids and how it grew over the years. This is a true friends to lovers tale that is well done.

<3 Brandt & Sarah. Another wonderful addition to the Forbidden Men series. Each installment has been equally unique and heartfelt.

I'll try to properly review soon, but if you are a fan of this series, I can't see you not enjoying this friends to lovers story. I'm so behind on GR and reviews, and reading in general. I'm trying to catch up, but it is a bit overwhelming. lol.

Wow, wow and WOW! What a beautiful, heartfelt story. Priceless (Forbidden Men #8) literally pulled at all of my heartstrings. For anyone who has read the whole Forbidden Men series, this story can make you feel a bit nostalgic and emotional. I absolutely fell in love with Linda’s writing

There is no secret that I totally love Linda Kage and her Forbidden Series. After Asher’s story I just had a feeling Brandt and Sarah will make me cry bog tears, and of course I was right. After Quinn, this Gamble is my favorite from the series, and my review will make you understand why.

The book follows Sarah, Mason’s little sister and Brandt Gamble, Noel’s brother. At the beginning we have some flashbacks on how the 2 of them befriended and we could see that their friendship runs deep. Sarah w
4 Stars

Overall Opinion: This was a book that I had been looking forward too ever since we first got the glimpse of their strong connection in Asher's story, The Girl's Got Secrets. I personally don't know anyone with Cerebral Palsy, but I feel like Ms. Kage was really respectful of the diagnosis and all of the insecurities, struggles, and strengths that go along with it. Brandt made the story for me! I understand that many will have issues with the fact that he slept around before they changed

LOVE! I have so many feelings for this series, I love all of the characters, the way it's written, the angst, the emotion, I love it all.

Priceless takes us on Brandt and Sarah's journey, which starts when they are 13 and both suffering from traumatic events caused by their respective families. A friendship begins, and strong unbreakable bonds are formed. From teenage angst through to college graduation, I devoured every page of this epic romance.

This is the 8th book in the FORBIDDEN MEN series and we met our heroine Sarah, in Book 1. She is the little sister of the hero Mason there. And she has cerebral palsy, needs a wheelchair, has seizures every now and then and she is no low maintenance girl-friend, as you can imagine. However, she is so smart, beautiful and full of life.

Sarah is pretty, both inside and out. She has dark hair and blue eyes. She is a sparkling beauty in a wheelchair. My heart ached for her. She craves to be normal, w
Self Note: After this review i am really tired of "authors excusing the Heroes behaviour with their meaningless sexual encounters with women prior to their tragic past" I know people with tragic pasts and they don't become a manwhores because of that! And this happens while the heroine is in the picture and have to know about it and he loved her at the time? That's CHEATING! Heroine is a "VIRGIN" so she cannot experience anything and he can go around and have it all!!! What a double standards!

I'm sorry! This may be a beautiful book and all but hero claiming he loves heroine yet he has sex like a bunny with other women while being in love with the other heroine BECAUSE he loves her and it's for her benefit, and then ends up fucking her anyway? In what universe is this romantic? I don't care for the reason. I don't CARE how big the trauma in your life was. You're not a whore because of the trauma. You were already a whore. The trauma just gives you an excuse to dip your dick in as many ...more

y’all this book was cute as hell.

ok, first things first, i dislike when an H supposedly “loves” h but goes on to be a ho. i hate it because what the heck is the point ya know? i don’t believe H loves the h if he’s intimate with a bunch of OW.

but here?

i didn’t mind it as much.

why you say?

because i get it. what he went through when he was a kid was heartbreaking and i definitely understand his mindset. Brandt thought he was dirty and Sarah was the only clean and pure thing in his life so he want
Another awesome re-read down ;) 10/5/18

I liked every book I've read in the series so far. Some I loved more than others....yes Pick, I'm talking about you....but they were all very good !!

Even though this book isn't my most favorite, because that honor still goes to Pick, it's a very close second.

Brandt is Noel's younger brother. When he is 13, Noel takes him and his younger brother and sister, away from their neglectfull fucked up mom to come and live with him and his girlfriend Aspen.

5 Priceless Stars

I’ve been skipping around in this series. I loved the first book, Price of a Kiss and when I realized the main Heroine in Priceless was in a wheelchair, well I needed to read this one.

Priceless is a wonderful read, it’s heart-warming and it will make your insides tingle. It’s about best friends, loyalty and overcoming obstacles.

The first thing I noticed about this book is that it’s written in order, so I loved the flow. The book starts with Brandt and Sarah when they first meet

5 fantastic stars!

This was an AMAZING read. Kudos to Linda Kage for writing this not so stereotypical romance. Her research into this medical condition was so thorough as i've had my own professional experience with these patients. She's managed to infuse humour and fun into this otherwise very serious diagnosis.

This was one book i was anticipating in the Forbidden series as we always got a small peek into Brandt and Sarah's lives from books 1-7. Sarah Arturo is Mason Lowe's younger sister whom

It all started with a friends request... 4.5 Stars!

I’ve forgotten how much I missed being captivated in Linda Kage’s words!

Being a huge fan of her books for well over 2 years now, I’ve watched all the characters grow together and when I found out Sarah was getting her own book I was giddy as fuck!

This story was so much fun to read and being reunited with all these characters was a fucking hoot! Yes I would have liked to have seen my Pick and my Eva more but that’s purely my own selfish reaso
What a gorgeous read this was. I’ll admit I was a little nervous to read this one after Asher’s book which didn’t really work for me. Well, I absolutely adored Brandt and Sarah’s story.

Brandt is going on my “Perfect Hero” shelf, because that’s just what he is. Caring, supportive, loyal and so darn protective all the while terrified his love for her was going to ruin their beautiful friendship. I loved the both of them genuinely liked, cared for and loved each other 110%, even if it took them a
3.5 Stars

Synopsis: Two best friends must overcome their own past, their own fears and insecurities as they fall in love and grow into adults.

The best bits: I think this is one of the only romances that involves a heroine with cerebral palsy. Kage has done a brilliant job! Sweet, sensitive and utterly romantic.

The worst bit: The way the characters spoke seemed a little childish. 'Boobies', 'meanie', 'demandy-pants', 'she tasted as sweet as a berry', 'the gooey kissy love' ... I don't kno

Great job, Linda!
I really loved this one and it is definitely my favourite book in the series.
Brandt could possibly be one of the best book boyfriends... EVER!

Okay now that the important stuff is over with, lets get on with the review.

What we have here is a gem of a story. We've got the old friends to lovers trope so need I say more? But wait! That is not all. We also have the author bravely , not just touching but hugging the crap out of the subject of disability. And boy did I fall head over heels in love with both the story

This book is about Brandt and Sarah. They were introduced in To Professor, with Love and Price of a Kiss respectively. I was excited to read this book because both characters intrigued me in the previous books also I wanted to know how the author handles a romance with protagonists with cerebral palsy.

I didn't know about cerebral palsy until the show 911 and I was really curious. I have to admit the author portrayed everything very well and it made a lot of sense. Both protagonists were best fr
Spoilers ahead

This is actually one of the tropes I dread- friends to lovers where the H in an effort to stay away from the h he loves has sex with many OW- still here? Ok good, I usually hate these books but I absolutely adored this book and the MCs ( including manwhore Brandt) . This won't be quite as detailed a review as I usually do but I'll say for most safety gang readers this one will be touchy

H was a known manwhore
h had cerebral palsy

I know that I am black sheep when I say that I never before read any book in this series. I heard about it. I read review about it. But I just never have any wish to start reading any book in Forbidden Men series. That is until I read one review about this book.
And then I just needed to read it. So I did. And God, how good it was.

Heroine (Sarah) has a cerebral palsy. But she doesn't let hat to stop her. She is strong, brave and smart character. Her relationship with hero (Brandt) was so
3 ⭐⭐⭐
Brandt & Sarah

What I love in this story was their history, friendship and how they fell in love. I don't know much about people with Cerebral Palsy but with someone who has a disability I like how Sarah was portrayed, she is very smart and brave. She did not let her condition to be a hindrance to her dreams.

I didn't like the plot all that much, specially when Sarah was hospitilized and how Brandt acted after that. I also felt that the story was dragged too long.

Still an okay story

Linda writes romance fiction from YA to adult, contemporary to fantasy. Most Kage stories lean more toward the lighter, funner side with a couple meaningful moments thrown in that center around love and hope. Focuses more on entertainment value and emotional impact than realism. She likes the drama and crazy, over-the-top plots that make you cry then laugh, get mad then sigh happily.
