Publisher's Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling contemporary romance author Danielle Jamie brings you a hot new Stepbrother series that has listeners falling in love with Linc and Raven around the world!

Warning: This book contains content only suitable for listeners 18+ due to a dirty talking, sexier-than-sin stepbrother also known as Forbidden.

Spring Break 2015 was supposed to be spent lying on the white sand beaches of Mexico sipping fruity cocktails with my friends and my boyfriend, Heath. Instead, I found myself single and flying back home to San Francisco to spend it with my mother, her new boyfriend, and his son, Linc.

Linc or, as my friends like to call him, "Forbidden", is my future stepbrother and the one person who can get under my skin unlike anyone else. "Forbidden" fits him perfectly because, like the fruit in the Garden of Eden, Linc is gorgeous, tempting, and completely untouchable. I've hated the arrogant jerk for as long as I can remember. But a week alone together, followed by a drunken bet, leads me onto a path that, once taken, there is no turning back.

meh

I'm not sure if this was too short or what. It obviously leaves you hanging for the next book. It was just kind of like everything was random or didn't actually have a story line or something. Well, it did have a good story line, and it could've been good but something just fell flat for me on this and I don't care enough about the characters to even read the next book :/ maybe it just get me sucked in

Great First Installment!

What did you love best about Forbidden: Linc & Raven, Book 1 (A Stepbrother Novella)?

I loved the narrator. I have listened to many of Kai Kennicott's narrations and think she did an awesome job doing both the female and the male parts which is hard to do.

What did you like best about this story?

It had me laughing at so many parts.

Which scene was your favorite?

The mouse scene was definitely my favorite. I laughed so hard.

Any additional comments?

This was the first book I have read by Danielle Jamie, but I really enjoyed it. I love how the characters butt heads constantly but you just know they want each other. I can't wait to see what happens next.

Story is nothing special & narration is horrible

The story is a typical stepbrother romance except it's boring with extremely immature characters. The narrator is one of the worst that I've experienced on Audible. The main character's voice is not terrible, but the best friend's is "nails on chalkboard" level irritating. I don't recommend this book, but if you really want to try it... I'd stick to Kindle edition.

love this story!

What did you love best about Forbidden: Linc & Raven, Book 1 (A Stepbrother Novella)?

I loved how Raven acts like she doesn't like Linc even though she can't stop thinking about him.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I loved both, Linc and Raven. Without the other you wouldn't get the reactions that we do.

What does Kai Kennicott bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

**This is my first audio book!**
I have read the book on my own and listened to the audio version. I'm not a big fan of the monotone voice. I listened to this while I was cleaning and my hubby was looking forward to listening to it as well, he is a Danielle Jamie fan as well. Within the first chapter he went outside due to the voice :(
