Review: Forbidden by Amy Miles

I've been beating my brain lately when it comes to my reading list. I was swept away by the whole New Adult craze that I snubbed my first love, YA Paranormal Romance. My brain is currently laughing at me, giving me one of those "I told you so" lectures. This book took me right out of that funk! It has everything I love in my books from a forbidden love to a kick ass fight scene. Forbidden is an exhilarating page turner that will have your heart beating a mile a minute. Vampires are my all time favorite myth and I appreciate this twist on an old age tale of Dracula...or should I say Vladimir. This is one of those books where I was thinking about it if I wasn't reading it. It consumed my every waking thought so I undoubtedly needed to finish it last night. I had decided only half way through that it was one of the best books that I've ever had the pleasure of reading.

I loved every single character in this book, including the villains(not that I love them..I loved to hate them lol). Each character had their own voice and that's extremely important to me. Rose was a bit reserved at first, rightfully so, but she grows to be that bad ass warrior I was hoping for. Gabriel is a total babe...and I mean that in a total non cradle robbing way. I've only been finished with Forbidden for 9 hours and I'm already jonesin' for the next one. I feel like a druggie that needs my fix. I hate to read the blurbs on books. Call me a risk taker lol. I'm trying so hard not to sneak a peak at book two's synopsis. I'm thinking I may have to push some books back to make room for Reckoning. It's crazy that it took me two years to read this book since I've had it on my TBR list since I first saw it. Amy's assistant/hubby gave me the nudge that I needed. What can I say? I'm stubborn. I HIGHLY recommend this book to everyone! ren
