Kaye’s character development is superb, showing a complex relationship between two characters, destined to meet at a precise moment in time. They come away from the encounter imbued with redemption and courage to redirect their lives.

Beautifully written!

I have read all three books in the Once (Forbidden book series) and I have to say I enjoy it! The way the writer tells the story and captivates each character is refreshing and keeps me wanting to know more of what’s happening with each and one off them. The writer did a beautiful job! At the end, the word ‘Once’ made more sense! So far I have loved all her books, Clouded, Taken book series, Born from Death book series. I can’t wait to see what she will be writing next.

Once by M.S. Kaye is a New Adult Contemporary Story about two people spending a day off their real lives on a train.

Jonathan and Rebecca keep seeming to run into each other on the train, until they meet up once too many times, and the encounter changes their lives.

I picked this up, and 6 hours later, lay my reader down while wiping my tears for the umpteenth time, smiling, and unable to wait for more of the story.

Solid 5-star read.

A well written story that I stayed up later than I should have to finish reading! The best part is the underlying story that gives a deeper meaning to the whole novel. I won't give away the ending though! You'll have to find out what this important message is for yourself.
