Recently, I have been reading oodles of contemporary romances with similar coupling (i.e. wounded hero & the woman who loves him). Her Forbidden Hero met all my requirements for a heroic love story. Ms. Kaye is truly amazing; she blended unrequited love, tragedy, insecurities and emotional turmoil perfectly to generate an ultimate HEA. Although short, she was able to construct a complete storyline + include realistic dialogue and imagery which will pull you into emotional bond between Marco & Alyssa. Without a doubt this book earned its 5 stars!!!

Once in a great while, a book comes along in the tributary of exhausted, unoriginal romance troupes that overshadows all previous attempts - this is such a book. After reading only a couple of pages I was so in love with Joss that I decided upfront that it would be impossible to create a hero worthy of her. However, when Ms. Kaye designed Army Special Forces Sgt. Brady Scott, who supersedes the stereotypical egotistical hero – she did just that. The story is told with an unheard of amount of heart-wrenching emotion - even this jaded reader was squirming uncomfortably. There isn’t any typical about this romantic novel, even though you knew how it would probably end (with a HEA); it had some interesting and often twisted ways of getting there.

  2. I've read Laura Kaye's Forever Freed and Just Gotta Say - enjoyed them both but they're so different to each other that it's hard to choose a favourite!

    I want to say I liked Forever Freed best but if I'm honest, I think it was really Just Gotta Say that was my favourite!! I'll opt out of saying why!

    2. It is why I started this blog... to share my love of reading with others. I love military romances. I even joined a reading challenge for next year called "Men in Uniform" just as an additional reason to read more.
