#BookReview of Forbidden by Kimberley Griffiths Little


Forbidden (Forbidden, #1)


About the Book: 

In the unforgiving Mesopotamian desert where Jayden’s tribe lives, betrothal celebrations abound, and tonight it is Jayden’s turn to be honored. But while this union with Horeb, the son of her tribe’s leader, will bring a life of riches and restore her family’s position within the tribe, it will come at the price of Jayden’s heart. 

Then a shadowy boy from the Southern Lands appears. Handsome and mysterious, Kadesh fills Jayden’s heart with a passion she never knew possible. But with Horeb’s increasingly violent threats haunting Jayden’s every move, she knows she must find a way to escape—or die trying. 

With a forbidden romance blossoming in her heart and her family’s survival on the line, Jayden must embark on a deadly journey to save the ones she loves—and find a true love for herself.

Set against the brilliant backdrop of the sprawling desert, the story of Jayden and Kadesh will leave readers absolutely breathless as they defy the odds and risk it all to be together.












About the Author: Kimberley Griffiths Little was born in San Francisco, but now lives in New Mexico with her husband and their three sons. 

For such award-winning middle grade novels as When the Butterflies Came, The Last Snake Runner, The Healing Spell, and Circle of Secrets, her writing has been praised as "fast-paced and dramatic," with "characters painted in memorable detail" and "beautifully realized settings." 

Kimberley adores anything old and musty with a secret story to tell and makes way too many cookies while writing. 

She's stayed in the haunted tower room at Borthwick Castle in Scotland; sailed on the Seine in Paris; ridden a camel in Petra, Jordan; shopped the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul; and spent the night in an old Communist hotel in Bulgaria.

My Review: This one was okay. Not an OMG everyone has to read this but it was okay. The characters were pretty good. And the story was slower but all in all it was a solid 2 stars for me. I got bored with it around 150 pages but did finish it. It just needed more story and less dialogue for me. And another complaint was about the romance! It was basically insta-love. Blahhhh. I didn't even like Jayden! I did feel really sorry for her though. She honestly couldn't do anything for herself. Overall, it was eh. I almost DNFed it.
