Being with her is like soaring, even with my feet firmly planted on the ground.

Her life is an open book, recorded for the world to see. But when I watch her videos, I know it’s a performance. She’s an actress, hiding her truth.

There’s sadness behind her positive words and generous smiles. There’s pain that I want to kiss away.

She pretends to be the persona she’s created,

Accentuate the positive
This series just keeps getting better. I love how the authors continue to bring so much emotion into the story. Each character has their own little history that just adds to the depth of their current relationships and enhances the overall experience. They also manage to come up with new and exciting drama to keep the book interesting and exciting. I loved this fast paced read and I can’t wait for the next book, I hope it’s James’ story.

Enjoyable storyline with adorable characters who make you want to laugh and cry (sometimes at the same time). This series is great! With secrets, drama, suspense, challenges and a growing romance, this book grabs you from the start and won’t let go until you finish reading. Finn O’Malley comes from an interesting family and I look forward to more in this series. I highly recommend this one.

Another fantastic addition to the series. I'm always a sucker for second chance at love story and this one definitely give you all the good feels. Finn who always believed he'd never find his fated mate, and he was ok with excepting that fact. Until he was hit with a rude awakening how's he supposed to deal with all his emotions now when Sophie walk into his life. And since I'm not one to give out spoiler you'll just have to check it out for yourself to see what happens. So looking forward to se ...more

This story is so hilarious! Imagine going on a girls' weekend before your best friend marries your ex-fiance where your best friend makes any bridezilla look sweet! This is the second story in the Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates series. You don't have to read the first book to follow this one, but it will make a bit more sense. Plus, DANG these stories are so good! Things don't always go easy, but they get to the right place in the end. You have to have a bit of woo-woo to make a paranormal story ...more

Fated in Forbidden continues the Alpha & Alchemy Fierce Mates series with a story that grabbed my attention and held it captive until the final page. I love the work of these two authors independently and follow them (and their book adventures), yet put them together writing and the result is explosive, addictive, sexy… and filled with the kind of humor that I eat up like M & M candies.

Finn and Sophie are worlds apart in life but fate doesn’t care about that when matchin

This is the second book in this series and it is just as fun to read as book one. Great characters and fun plot make for and enjoyable read.

FATED IN FORBIDDEN is the second book in the Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates series. The Alphas & Alchemy: Fierce Mates series combines the worlds of Keira’s Alphas and Alchemy and Liza’s Fierce Mates. You do not need to have read either of these other two series to enjoy this new combination! Though each book in this new series will stand alone, for maximum enjoyment, read them all and in the order of release.

I absolutely enjoyed this fated-mate, paranormal romance that includes a frenemy/bridez

If you have read the first book of Forbidden, you are familiar with Daphne, the owner of the old asylum turned B&B. She and her mate Declan are expecting their first guests, while the construction crew is still re-modelling part of the house.
The first guests are 3 young women, who celebrate the upcoming wedding of one of them, but the group is not a happy one. Important for this story is Sophie, a Vlogger for a Positivity Talkshow. But staying positive is not easy when your best friend is marry

Book two in the Forbidden series had Finn finding his fated mate. Sophie is at the B&B with her toxic "best friend" and the best friend's sister. The book has puppy love, strange happenings and Sophie having to deal with the friend from hell. I really like Sophie. She tried to be a positive person but sometimes you have to do what is right for you. Finn was sweet, strong yet vulnerable and was not looking for a mate. Funny how things change in a blink of an eye. We got a glimpse about what makes ...more

Fated in forbidden is a great collaborative of shifters and magic. Too many times have I seen friends or myself in toxic friendships and it’s great to see the protagonist deal with it and find a way up from her low point. I’m excited to continue the series!

Who are Sophie and Sarah? What is Sophie getting ready to do? Who is Pete? What happens that Sarah nags at Sophie? Who is Bea and what does she beg of Sophie? How do we meet Peyton? What do we start to see happen when Peyton is around? What is going on with construction in the basement of the old asylum turned B&B? Well, finding out what was going on was completely unexpected! Enjoy the read!

Sophie is an Actress who comes to Forbidden to a O'Malley's B&B for Sarah's bachelorette weekend. Sophie meets Finn a werewolf shifter and finds a Pomeranian she names Peyton. There is suspense, drama, danger, twists, turns, demon possession, evil, and romance. I want to read James' story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and ...more

Well written and engaging story

This is a another great story by these two talented authors and I really enjoyed how it flowed. It had suspense, drama, family, friend issues and a mysterious illness all tugging on the budding romance between Sophie and Finn. Expect humour, the cutest 'badest' demon ever and sizzling chemistry to have you turning pages madly to see how it will all come together. I enjoyed the ride and recommend this book to any PNR fan.

This was a really fun read, with growls and lots of sizzle. Who would want to attend the wedding of your best friend marrying your ex. I sure wouldn't but Sophie is the type to not rock the boat until Finn enters the scene and her world is rocked.

This book is about Sophia and Finn. Finn is a confirmed bachelor or at least he was until he meets Sophia. Sophia is a video blogger and about to move out of her apartment she shared with her best friend and ex-boyfriend. While on a trip for her girlfriend’s bachelorette party is where she meets Finn. At the haunted bed-and-breakfast that was once an insane asylum.
Lots of action and adventure and romance. This is a well written self contained story that’s also part of the

Forbidden is a town like you could never imagine. Peyton is possessed and Sarah acts like she is. Sophie’s best friend is engaged to her ex fiancé. Everything seems this confusing in Forbidden. Sophie and Finn are attracted to each other. Now if only Sophie’s dog would like him! This is a crazy and bizarre read that I loved!
