“I have total faith that Stein will once again write a story that is erotically charged and sensual in a very unique way. And she did.” ~ Under the Covers

FORBIDDEN took me by surprise. Charlotte Stein is an autobuy author for me so I didn’t really go reading the blurb before starting this book. I have total faith that Stein will once again write a story that is erotically charged and sensual in a very unique way. And she did. However, I don’t think I quite expected this.

The story starts off quite dark with Dot being chained up and abused by her crazed mother. Her beliefs have totally taken over her life and she believes that Dorothy is possessed by the devil. It isn’t until her savior arrives that Dot sees a new light and gets a chance at finally living away.

Dot recovers quite quickly and with the help of this priest in training named Killian, she becomes acquainted with the outside world again. Her time in captivity hasn’t made her an idiot. She still had morals and a great understanding of the world. Killian and her are a great match together, but what stays in their way is this potent lust they feel for one another. As someone working to being a man of God, Killian must resist those temptations, but it is hard to do when Dot’s curiosity continues to tempt him.

Overall, this book was enjoyable but the conflict towards the end and the abrupt resolution did feel quite rushed. Yet it’s hard to dislike it when Stein spends so much time building the romance expertly.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
