Publisher's Summary

Going to her best friend's wedding was bittersweet. Rachel was happy to see her closest companion taking the next step in life, but deep down she was envious of the love that Sam and Franco shared. She had always thought that they'd get married at the same time, but no one could ever hold her interest long enough.

Except for him. Her best friend's sexy brother, and the one man that was totally off limits.

Not only was he a billionaire who had women falling head-over-heels for him daily, Sam would never approve of her closest friend dating a member of the family. She had no choice but to keep her feelings a secret or risk ruining their friendship.

But there was something in his emerald eyes, the way they pierced into her during the wedding ceremony, the way they lingered a little too long. Was he trying to tell her something? Would it be wrong to have just one little taste?

Second Chances

This was sweet, well-written and well-performed. I was impressed that it moved along with good pacing, in spite of it being a short story. I usually feel like books of this length would be better if they were longer, but this worked. I'm looking forward to the next adventure from this author.

Shoshana Franck does a great job, as usual. Her tone, inflection and voices are just right. She performs all the characters well and believably and had a lot to do with why I really enjoyed this audiobook. I received this audiobook in exchange for an unbiased review.

Enjoyable Story

Yes. This book was an enjoyable read.

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

Shoshana was a great narrator who read with emotion but she wasn't over the top.

Nice surprise.

I wasn't expecting very much out of an audio only 1 and a half hours long, but I was happily surprised. The writing was good. The story moved along at a good pace and didn't seem rushed which is difficult to do with just a little over 90 mins. The characters and story were well developed. The narration was pretty good, but sometimes her voice was a bit monotone. All in all I would recommend this as a quick listen.

Forbidden Love..

Any additional comments?



I like Forbidden Love Stories and this one did not disappoint.

I also liked the friendship between Rachel and Sam.

Rachel has had a secret crush on Sam's brother since she was a teenager but has managed to stay away from him out of respect for her friendship with Sam.

During Sam's gorgeous marriage in Italy, sparks fly and Rachel finds it harder to stay away from the object of her affection.

I liked the characters and none of them annoyed me.

I wish the story was a little longer and little less predictable.

Overall, this book was a cute and quirky Decent Read filled with Romance.


Shoshana Franck did well with the narration.

Snapshots of a romance in the making

This story is not unique. I have no doubt that, if a reader has read billionaire modern romances before, the reader would have already encountered this basic plot. What makes this different is the way it is written. It is almost like poignantly detailed snapshots of the 4 month development of a relationship that was years in the making. Despite being short, it has everything one needs from a story in this genre, including sexual tension, moments of reminiscing, the feelings of insecurity, marriage, death, and family. Shoshana Franck's narration is a great fit for this audio book, adding just the right flavour.

Short but sweet

I love novellas like this. This story brings Rachel and Josh together at Josh's sister's wedding in Tuscany. There is a lingering attraction which we learn is from their teenage years. This sweet romance ignites and becomes hot. When tragedy hits them, we get to see if their years long love is able to survive as well as if Josh's sister, Sam will be alright with her best friend and billionaire brother are together. Give it a read, it will make you smile.

Narration by Shoshana Franck is always a welcome listen. Her voice is warm and sexy. You are able to tell which character is speaking, which to me is key for audio and her male vs female voices are spot on.

Cute Story but...

The book was written pretty good and is easy to follow. When I see a book about a Billionaire I've come to expect erotica. This nook does have some good sex scenes but they are cut short. The author could have made this a full novel and hotter, she would have had a very good book! I liked the story and the characters but they could have been expanded on.

The narrator has done a good job reading. Her voice is clear, easy to understand and pleasant to listen to.
