Forbidden Valentine (Forbidden Trilogy #4) by J.C. Valentine




Goodreads review


 
 
It started with a drink.

It turned into a promise.

Ransom Scott lost his heart the day the woman he loved chose another man. Or so he thought. Estranged from his brother, distancing himself from the world, he’s been drowning his sorrows in cheap booze and women…determined to forget.

His world is falling apart, until a beautiful woman decides to take a chance on him.

Dani Deviche is as bewitching as she is innocent. Full of youth and vitality, she captivates him. Challenges him. She’s everything Ransom never thought to look for in the opposite sex, and he can’t get enough.

When a promise of friendship turns into something more, can Ransom fulfill his end of the bargain, or will a secret from Dani’s past destroy his last chance at happiness?
**Author’s Note** This book was written as a compliment to the Forbidden Trilogy. However, it can be read as a standalone.
 
 
I have to say that I have no interest whatsoever in reading the previous books and as this can be read as a standalone that is all the better for me.
 
Once again I feel as if I am the odd man out on a book again.

This isn't working for me whatsoever. I decided to skip the first 3 books as I wasn't really interested in that plot/story. Which was probably for the best.

But this was just lacking in everything. I couldn't connect with Ransom, more with Dani than Ransom. There wasn't a lot of depth especially with Ranson wollowing in self pity but with a flip of a switch, okay 3 days his feelings for Jo are suddenly gone and he is smitten with Dani.

I didn't actually know that this book was part of a trilogy until he was approved in reading it. This is more a case of it is me and not you.

2 stars and DNF % 52. My first DNF of 2016.


This is just my personal opinion peeps.
