Publisher's Summary

Izzy White knows of the darkness in this world. After all, she escaped it long ago. Determined not to let her past beat her, Izzy has a secure, stable life with a job she loves in nursing. But one act of kindness will completely upend everything she's so carefully built - putting her right back in the crosshairs of danger she's been so desperate to avoid. 

When Theo Kane shows up like a knight in shining armour, Izzy can't help thinking she's been saved from one threat and exposed to another. His imposing physique, the harsh lines of his face, and the wariness of everyone who comes close are just a few clues to Theo Kane's notorious reputation. The man is positively terrifying. But with Izzy, he's tender and a complete gentleman, and her fascination with the mysterious beast of a man becomes too powerful for her to walk away. 

As Theo's demons come to light, running becomes even more impossible. And yet staying together could doom them both.

Read by Julie Garthan.

Ugh! My first and last book by this author.

This was a complete disappointment. Let me list the reasons why.

1) There are mistakes in the narration, here are just a few examples...
- narrator refers to Theo as "Leo"
- at the end of chapter 3 she says "my friend gives me an understanding smile,  curling my arm around my shoulder and pulling me into her..."
- chapter 8, "when I'm free I sit up, bringing my knees to his chin", should read "my chin"

2) There are also some painfully overused words and phrases. 
- referring to Theo's "cobalt eyes" at least once every chapter, sometimes twice. Gets tiresome.
- "...the hardness that cuts his handsome face, making him even more handsome, he's so damn handsome..."

3) I simply cannot reconcile the notion that a woman who has suffered and escaped abuse - is supposedly "done with being vulnerable" - would willingly allow herself to be tied up and by a virtual stranger against her will (because she asks him multiple times to untie her), halfway ****ed by him, and does not lose her temper when he leaves her naked and bound to the bed for a long enough period of time that she gets tired and starts to fall asleep. And even after they've done it, he still refuses to untie her. I'm sorry, but that's not hot. It's controlling and disturbing.

4) The fact that Theo follows her to Vegas after two brief encounters from their initial meeting,  when he kicks her out of his car, and gets creepy weird about dinner, only makes him a stalker. And when he shows up poolside and tells her to cover up... and she does, is simply inconceivable and frankly outrageous.

5) The way her brain cells spontaneously vanish when Theo is near and she loses the ability to speak, walk, breathe, make decisions and be assertive or normal in any way whatsoever make me disdainful of Izzy's character. The way she becomes so enamoured by such a bossy and controlling tool beggars belief.

6) If you wanted to hear Jack George's narration,  skip straight to the epilogue.  That's all you'll get.

I found the story irritating, the plot lazy, the main characters loathsome and the narration sloppy.
I couldn't drag myself through the whole book and called it quits at chapter 10.

Brilliant

Once again Jodi Ellen Malpas has written a truly brilliant story. It's intriguing, it has twists and turns, multi faceted characters and to top it off it's a love story.

Untouchable

This book was great brilliant and I shed a few tears I really felt Theos pain and it was da shame that his Mother could not help him but glad Izzy was able to get through to him I would like to here a story callum and jess and get those two together they seem to have a spark. I would have liked to hear more of the story from Theos side of the Story Julie Garthan was not bad but I do like Books better when there are two narrators

In need of stronger narrator

Loved the story of Theo and Izzie , but please please start giving more attention to narrator, Jack George was perfect but sadly Julie was all wrong she sounded like a Whinny teenager..Jodi and her publisher need to do there homework on narrators May I suggest a visit to the Facebook group Aural Fixation which has a massive following or speak to some of America’s authors for this genre and remember they can pull off English accents alternately put Edita back to work.
I not trying to insult Julie infact her narration of Forbidden was fine just totally wrong for this book and I am a really avid listener I do not read .

Hoping you take some of this onboard

Really great story

Another really great story from Jodi Ellen Malpas. I love the fact that each time I finish a book of hers I think that the next book will not be as good as the last as I had fallen in love with the characters. Then each new book has me thinking that I love the new characters better than the last ones. She has such a great talent for writing amazing books.

The voice...…..

I really struggle with this book. The narrator voice was awful. Then the story line was one that everyone seem to be using these day. I don't no how many time I fell asleep. So I probably listen to the same chapter about three time. This was a struggle, I have to say. I love...…… THIS MAN. So to say I was disappointed would be putting it mildly.

Loved it

Another amazing book by JEM! I couldn’t stop listening to it. I’m left wanting more. Maybe book two could be Jess and Callum’s story (here’s hoping for a second instalment)

Izzy sounds like a small child!!!

I would have enjoyed this book so much more if the performers sounded more age appropriate. Izzy literally sounded like a little kid and I just found it so off putting. It’s a great story and I usually love everything Jodi Ellen Malpas writes but this audible just wasn’t right!

Mediocre, don't believe the hype.

I wanted to love this book so much, the hype promised something different, Theo... a brand new Alpha to love and adore, sadly not. I am a big fan of the One Night series and liked the This Man series too. But, this book is lacking. It was slow to start, it got a little interesting when Izzy was in Las Vegas, then it dragged until the last 3-4 chapters, even then it struggled to keep my attention. Oh, and surprise, surprise there's a "shock" pregnancy, he's a club owner... the all to familiar format, it's all so tired and predictable. Julie Garthan's performance sounded like a giddy school girl, but I feel that's down to the writing as I thought the performance she delivered in The Forbidden was great. Hardcore JEM fans will love this book, I have no doubt. For me, unfortunately the last few JEM book's I have read/listened to have missed the mark and confirmed that she is a "one trick pony" when it comes to developing stories and characters. I doubt I'll be buying another JEM book, I am returning this one. So disappointed.

I just love Jodi's Alphas Men

A beautiful love story of Theo Kane and Izzy White. If you have been introduced to Jodi's other Alphas then you will not be disappointed. I was in awe of Izzy, very strong, compasionate and fearless. A must read.... I hope we see more of these two characters ........ Well done Jodi xx
