I only had one rule: don’t fall in love with the cruel prince.
I broke it.
When the clock struck twelve, I went back to being a servant. He promised to let me go with my heart in pieces...but Grayson Crowne always was king at breaking promises.
I refuse to let him lock me in a tower.
I have no choice but to take the only out offered me—another cruel prince.

This author is really good at writing, but, what is her deal in always glorifying RAPISTS?
How does putting the RAPIST with THE RAPE VICTIM a love story? It is stomach churning, insulting to rape victims and disrespectful to readers that were not warned that the book is "a rape fantasy genre. The author ruined what could have been one of the best love stories in decades between Story and Grayson. I will not read from this author again and will be most vigilant in future before picking up love story books. (less)

Book 2 ends on a HUGE cliffhanger.Till date, it would be a trilogy but the author doesn't state this to be the final book for Crowne point or should I say she doesn't mention anything on this.
"...Forbidden Fate is the third book in the Crowne Point universe. You need to have read Stolen Soulmate to read Forbidden Fate." [Last lines]

EDIT: The story isn't complete in #3rd book.There would be another book dated to be released in Oct, 2020. Crowne Point #4 - Destroyed Destiny

I was enraptured, consumed, gripped from the very first page. Mary Catherine Gebhard WENT THERE with this story, and I am here for ALL of it!

I savoured this book for as long as I possibly could; I really didn’t want to leave this world.

Story and Gray’s journey continues in Forbidden Fate after the events of Stolen Soulmate (Crowne Point #2). To say this book was a 2020 anticipated read of mine is an understatement. I couldn’t wait to get thrust back into this world of el

With the exception of you, I dislike everyone in the room
And I don't want to lie, but I don't want to tell you the truth

This was me while reading most of this book:

Let me preface my review by writing that I’m disappointed with this book. This was one of my most anticipated books of this year considering I fell in love with Stolen Soulmate, the beginning of Story’s and Gray’s story. It was phenomenal and made me fall in love with MCG’s writing! But Forbidden Fate was a huge let down.

Forbidden Fate picks up exactly where the previous book left off, after Gray’s weeding with Lottie. The flowery writi

Holy book hangover!! I knew from the previous book that going into this one I would be wrecked but I just didn’t anticipate how accurate or how hard I was shook. The author is an evil genius who had my heart in palpitations the whole book and me screaming at my kindle one second and hugging it the next, but omg it was so good. I never thought I’d say this but this book was so well written that I never thought I’d enjoy being destroyed just to be put back together again. There were so many twists ...more
From beginning to end, Forbidden Fate will wreak havoc on your emotions.

OMFG, I'm DEAD !! Completely DEAD !!!! MCG killed me with this one. From page to page this story hit me right in the heart and had me shouting so many expletives I wanted to wash my own mouth out with soap.

I can't even begin to tell you what I felt reading this. Never have I read a book where I literally at one point or another wanted to kill every single character. This book doesn't have a peak because it's literally peak

This book was a whirlwind of emotions for me— I was anxious, hopeful, sad, but most of all I was frustrated.

Literally everything you can think of is an obstacle for them. Every time I thought we’d finally catch a break something else popped up and ruined it or interrupted them! I was on the verge of screaming I was getting so damn frustrated.

I can’t even say much because everything is spoiler that frustrated me, but I’m going to be honest— I really didn’t like anyone but Gray. If you have read

Mary is beyond talented. I thoroughly enjoy her writing style. She is a gifted author.

That being said, there are things that didn’t work for me:
- the story is cyclical. There is little to no growth of character or progression of plot.
-the plot is repetitive. Different details, but the basic same event time and again.
- we end up back at the beginning again.
- there are is a lot of drama, a lot that gets in their way, and I think if the ending would have b

I am so freaking mad and disappointed I could literally cry. I waited soooo fucking long for this stupid book and it was the worst shit show. The main guy was a spineless douche and the heroine was a dumb idiot. The trope the author used for conflict was, ugh!!!!!!!!!!! 😠😠😠😠😠😠

I dnf this stupid book at pg 287 when i realized the author did another fucking cliffhanger. I'm over this dumb series. I'm so freaking mad.

The woman is evil!

Mary, the name seems innocent, she looks innocent... However, the books she writes are far from innocent. They are sinister, they are gut-wrenching, they are dark, twisted, and have my mind on overdrive trying to piece together the story and that is exactly what I love about them.

Grayson and Story's isn't something out of a fairytale. There are so many twists and turns you do not see coming. It's not an easy ride to be on and it will rip hard a

Holy Freakin Hades!!! DEAD Y’ALL!💀 My heart, My Head, My Words. I’m a complete jumble of emotions and thoughts and there’s not a single bit of it I’m emotionally ready to articulate into words. Even if I could I wouldn’t. However it doesn’t matter because I’m just not ready!! The angst, the tears, the drama.

"If our fate is forbidden, then I'll live as a fugitive."

Oh my poor heart! Just as Stolen Soulmate did before, this book put my heart through the ringer. Forbidden Fate is one of the most powerful, heartfelt and gripping romances that I've had the pleasure of reading. Every word, every sentence, every page, completely owned me. It wasn't just phenomenal. It was everything!

Grayson has become the master of breaking promises, and Story has had enough. She decides to take matters into her own hands,

Don’t you just love books that make you feel so much? I’m not talking about the good feels, I’m talking about the heart pumping, mind thumping, why am I reading this, anxiety feels!! I didn’t think I’d survive it and at only 10% in I was ready to stop reading to save my heart, but I went on unable to put it down!

FF is NOT a standalone, please make sure you have read Stolen Soulmate before you dive into this one.

I didn’t think anything could crush me quite like Stolen Soulmate did but leave it to Mary to correct my assumption. This story is like a million tiny papercuts, each page turned is one more cut until you’ve completely bled out and you didn’t even realize it was happening. Her words will siphon everything from you and leave you with a sense that you will never, and I mean never be the same again.

I’ll make you feel so good Lottie. Your wedding night will be perfect.

I have never felt this kind of murderous rage and brutal heartbreak ever from a romance. Mary Catherine Gebhard crushed me completely in Forbidden Fate. This story is the very definition of angsty romance.

Grayson Crowne is the cruel playboy prince of Crowne Hall. He is not allowed to love. And so he is married to Lottie de Luc from another rich and powerful family. But his heart belongs to Story Hale, the servant. They are broken. They are forbidden. But they are also inevitable. How are they su

If I thought Stolen Soulmate was cruel on my little heart, I had experienced nothing yet! In Forbidden Fate, Grayson and Story played with my feelings like never before! I'm speechless! The level of feels this story gave me was overwhelming! All the ups and downs between this doomed couple made me hurt so bad! Their impossible love story was more than ever captivating, yet soul crushing! I must be a masochist though, because I adored this book that is a top favorit
