Title:  Forbidden to Want
Series:  Billionaire Bachelors
Author:  J. C. Harroway
Genre:  Contemporary Romance
Published:  January 1, 2019
Publisher:  Harlequin™ (Harlequin Dare)
My Rating:  4 stars

I like a hot, steamy, and quick Romance – the kind that strips away everything but the core of two people who have their own individual issues to be dealt with, but also are too stubborn or wounded to see that love is possible for them.  The new(ish) Harlequin Dare line gives me exactly that.  Stories where not only the inhibitions and clothing are stripped quickly away, but where those reasons for only wanting a quick, sexy hook-up instead of a lasting relationship are also stripped away.

Kit Faulker is an obnoxious, wounded, sexy widower who now only lives for work and intense, sex only, one-night stands.  He’s full of guilt, regret and doesn’t believe he deserves another woman trusting, loving him.  He’s wrong about that and it will take one strong woman to prove that to him.

Mia Abbott doesn’t trust in relationships, and she’s not afraid to go after what she wants or needs without all the pesky strings and entanglements when needed.  Although Kit is, at first meeting, a complete jerk he’s also one sexy, attractive man that she’s not afraid to take on – in any capacity.  She’ll hold him to one contract, but she’s offering another unofficial contract as well.  Kit and Mia are about to get more than they bargained for in each other – and maybe the one person they need for far longer than three weeks of intense, hot, mind-blowing sex… maybe love has entered the equation as well.

J.C. Harroway’s Billionaire Bachelors is a mini-series within the A Sexy Billionaire Romance series.  I’ve now read all three of the brothers’ stories (the last releases tomorrow 8/1/19) and I really cannot pick one favorite – they are all unique, sizzling hot with couples where I believed in their reality.

In FORBIDDEN TO WANT, Kit and Mia are certainly stubborn, strong-willed people with their own issues to be dealt with, yet I enjoyed them as people and loved watching their “it’s only sex” rule fly out the window as the emotions settled in on them.  This is one hot, steamy, emotional story that I would recommend to any reader who likes their couples sexy as sin, not afraid of anything physically pleasing but terrified of emotional involvement.  It’s one good story that (most – but not if you don’t like those sexy moments described) any Romance reader would enjoy.

I own a Kindle edition of FORBIDDEN TO WANT.

Available for the Kindle
