A shocking, heartbreaking story of taboo romance thats as compelling as it is controversial.Seventeen-year-old Lochan and sixteen-year-old Maya have always felt more like friends than siblings. Together they have stepped in for their alcoholic, wayward mother to take care of their three younger siblings. As de facto parents to the little ones, Lochan and Maya have had to grow up fast. And the stress of their livesand the way they understand each other so completelyhas also brought them closer than two siblings would ordinarily be. So close, in fact, that they have fallen in love. Their clandestine romance quickly blooms into deep, desperate love. They know their relationship is wrong and cannot possibly continue. And yet, they cannot stop what feels so incredibly right. As the novel careens toward an explosive and shocking finale, only one thing is certain: A love this devastating has no happy ending.

Another controversial read. I‘m finding it hard to get through this one. Not because of the obvious reasons but because of the style of writing. I can‘t properly engage and I really want to know what happens but not through spoilers. I don‘t want to put it in the DNF pile, button it‘s getting there

I‘ve been curious about this one since its release. Curious if it was well written enough to convince me that a brother and sister could really fall in love due to their circumstances. In the end though, I didn‘t buy it. Interesting idea to get you thinking and pretty good writing but I wanted the author to convince me and she didn‘t.

I have to take a moment here to recommend that most heart wrenching books I have ever read. These books will make you feel things you never imagined you would. I read them back to back and both left me emotionally drained. The mark of a great book. They are beautiful, tragic taboo romances. Incest, abuse, neglect, obsession are the backdrop to these romances. Couldn't recommend them more.

Rcoco Sounds like VC Andrews reincarnated! 2y
LASluvesbooks I just read the synopsis for flawed...wow sounds good...🤓 2y
LadyRuthven @Rcoco Yes! They have the same feel as Flowers In The Attic. Love VC Andrews! 2y

Whenever I try to rec this book to people, I‘m met with a lot of judgment. And, full disclosure, it is a book about an incestuous relationship between a brother and sister. But it‘s so beautifully written, incredibly heartbreaking, and so respectfully covers a controversial, taboo topic.

One of my favorite reads of the year and I cried through an entire box of tissues.

Cinfhen Wow!!! This is YA?!? Very Intense 😱I‘m intrigued... 2y
Kenziejo I loved this book and I wasn't sure that I would. Curiosity about how the incestuous relationship would be handled had me picking it up, but wow. I was not prepared. So emotional. 😭❤️ 2y

Forbidden is such a heartbreaking and beautifully written book.
It has the power to shatter your heart with such a story.
The plot is simple, yet so powerful and moving. You will experience a roller coaster of emotions while reading.
If you haven't read it PLEASE DO READ IT!
Highly recommended.

I actually read this book four years ago and I really enjoyed it. I've been thinking of picking it up again. I think the author does a great job of making the reader feel sick about the incest but also sympathize with the two characters because of their situation.

Very Taboo subject, but a great read and plenty of shocks.

I allow myself to be suckered into stuff Iike this and am never sure why. I read and was titillated by V.C. Andrews when I was a teen, but this kind of story no longer has shock value. An big ho-hum.

Habe schon sehr viel über dieses Buch gehört und die Meinungen waren alle ziemlich gespalten.

Lila_Lu Schon die Inhaltsangabe hat bei mir ein “ wie soll ich das Verstehen“ ausgelöst! Ist aber auf mein Merkzettel gelandet. 3y
WortKunstSalat Also ich war auch erst sehr skeptisch. Man muss schon ohne Vorurteile an die Geschichte ran gehen. Ist halt ziemlich skurril. Aber es ist spannend und super geschrieben. Nachvollziehen kann man das glaube ich gar nicht. 3y

I finished this book in the living room with my husband and sister sitting beside me. I closed it, got up, and immediately ugly cried so hard, they were both very confused. Read it but be ready.

Warning: this book deals with very taboo subject matter.

This book destroyed me. Out of all the books I've read this one still sticks out like a sore thumb in my mind. The main characters stole my heart, then crushed it with their story. Be prepared to cry.

MissCarrieLou I cried like a baby after I read this!!!!! 4y
heyitstay @MissCarrieLou me too. I figured out what was going to happen right before it did, and I had to set it down for a week to mentally prepare myself 4y
