When love blossoms from the unexpected will the years between separate them forever?

On the outside, Bita appears to have it all under control. She’s a no-nonsense, strong-willed, force to be reckoned with. On the inside, though, she’s spent most of her life dealing with her pushy Iranian mother, ever concerned father, and overbearing younger brother.

But that’s all about to

The story is well-developed and so enjoyable that the only drawback was the disappointment when it was over!

Read full review in the 2019 September issue of InD'tale Magazine.

There are times when you read a book and know from the very first chapter what your rating will be. Then there are times when you’re completely thrown off kilter and your prediction is waaaaay off. This was definitely a case of the latter. In a good way!

Forbidden by Time was a surprisingly enchanting and enigmatic read that had me up until the early hours of the morning. What started out as cultural-based story of a woman seeking

Forbidden by Time is the third book in the Forbidden Love series. You don’t have to read the previous two books to read this one.

Negeen Papehn gets better with every book. This one is my favorite of hers so far. It is an enchanting tale of how two people find love despite the age gap. She hit all the feels. The story made me laugh and cry.

I didn’t care for Bita in the previous books. The reader gets to see the non-bitchy side of Bita, and I actually liked her. I was rooting for her throughout

The author did it again! This time, we got to know the character we met (but didn’t like) in the first book. And, the story is shared around a real-life issue that the characters have to struggle with and work through - one of the things I like most throughout the trilogy and love how the author captured the issue of age differences (and life stage differences) through a love story. I also enjoyed how she continues to weave the cultural and religious backgrounds of the characters into the story ...more

Very engaging and interesting book, page turner . You just want to know more about Persian culture, love and dealing as this family is not traditional one. Bita is strong ,sassy and independent woman. As a single woman she is buying a house.
This is how she met Ramtin. A little older ,he is real estate agent helping her with purchase. They are getting involved but something happen that Bita is under stress.
The suspense so good ,not what I expected. It’s hard to put this book down.
I love to read a

This is my first story by this author but it won't be my last. This story is a wonderfully heartwarming one of the forbidden love between a woman and a man fifteen years her senior. The age difference and other differences they face is heartbreaking as they realize that their romance may not work.

I would love to read the other books in the series and any future work by Negeen Papehn.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I was so engaged in the book I finished the book in less than 24 hours. I have loved all of the books, but I think this is my
Favorite. I loved the mixture of persian culture, love and dealing with a non traditional family. The suspense so good that I could not put it down. I was literally reading it standing at
The park, car dealership, anywhere I could. I hope there is a 4th book! Negeen is a very creative writer.

Negeen Papehn does it again in the last installment of her Forbidden Love series with this book! She’s stitched together a story you get lost in, lifting you up and breaking your heart all at the same time. The passion between her characters and the struggles they endure stay with you long after the last page is turned. A perfect ending to this trilogy. A must read!

I can't believe this is the end. This series is so important to me, I remember when I couldn't stop reading the first book even to sleep, and when I was in a major book slump and the second book got me out of it.

This one follows Bita story, it's funny because I usually dread when a character I disliked in a series end up getting their books. Bita frustrated me so much in Forbidden by Faith when she didn't support Maziar and Sara that I thought it would be hard to get into her book. I was so wro
