Forbidden by Karla Sorensen – REVIEW –


I’m not super eloquent with my words, and it’s taken me 2 days since finishing this story to be able to even think about writing a review that will do this book justice. I’ve loved every single story that has to do with the Ward family, starting with Logan’s story and moving through each of the sisters. I have been dying for Isabel’s book since we first met her, and let me just say….Karla freaking nailed it for our girl!

Isabel has always been the most closed off of the Ward sisters. She’s the rock they need, but she’s also the hard truths they don’t always want to hear. And when it comes to talking about herself and her feelings…forget about it. She’s not interested. But seeing her with Aiden as well as with his daughter, we got to see a softer side of Isabel that I’m not sure she even knew she had. Watching her be a little discombobulated around Aiden just endeared her even more to me!

And Aiden….there aren’t proper words to describe how utterly and completely freaking SMOKING he is!! Not only was he a professional fighter, he’s also a single dad…que the swoon! I loved how hard he tried to keep Isabel out but to also figure out what makes her tick. This is a slow-burn romance at its freaking finest! Utter perfection my friends!!

Release Date: May 20

No man has ever been able to rattle Isabel Ward. Until Aiden Hennessy walks in the door of her gym—ownership papers in hand.

The former fighter is a lot of things- a devoted single dad, a widower trying to start over, and a watchful presence that knocks her off her very capable feet.

To make matters worse, Isabel had a crush on him for the entirety of her teenage years. Doodles in her diary, and letters declaring her admiration—while never sent—haunt the absolute crap out of her now that she has to face him every single day.

She’s not the only one affected.

No woman has tempted Aiden to move on from the memory of his wife—until Isabel. But she’s too young, too feisty, too much of everything he should avoid. 

Working together makes avoidance impossible, and so is pretending like the blistering chemistry between them doesn’t exist. 

Now that the unshakeable woman is shaken and the un-temptable man is tempted, Isabel and Aiden have to decide what they’re willing to risk for a taste of the forbidden.

Meet Karla Sorensen:

Well, let’s see … I’m a wife and a mother. If the things that I write bring a smile to someone’s face, then I’ve done my job.  I am obsessed with Outlander (both the books and the show). I’m almost exclusively a romance reader, which means some people will never consider me a literary snob. If I could meet one historical figure, it would be Jane Austen. I received my Bachelors in Public Relations and worked in health care marketing before I had my babies. I hate Twitter. I do it, but I hate it. Also, if you want to get on my good side, bring me wine and I’ll love you forever.
