Title:  Forbidden Attraction (Forbidden Trilogy #1)  
Author:  S.R. Watson
Publication Date: June 17th 2014 by S.R. Watson
Plot:   Siobhan Gallagher has just started her senior year at the University of Southern California. She has her best friend and her boyfriend of five years by her side. As the countdown to graduation begins, her world comes crashing down when her boyfriend confesses that he has cheated on her. Her past has shown that love is volatile, but she had hoped that this time would be different. Siobhan becomes a cynic - doubting the existence of love. She vows to never give her heart to another.

In walks Professor Michaels. He is a sexy billionaire playboy who limits his encounters to one night, maybe two. His jaded past and multitude of secrets shapes his aversion to love and relationships. He makes no promises of forever. Offers no apologies for his preference for variety. When he first meets Siobhan, the attraction is mutually instantaneous. He knows she is supposed to be off limits, but he has never denied himself of something he wanted. 

Siobhan and Professor Michaels share the same sardonic outlook on love. What happens when these two paths cross? If they give into this forbidden attraction, can they both come out on the other side unscathed?

 My Review 


Forbidden Attraction kind of fell into some typical clichés of this genre and NA reads. But, it still was a sensual and entertaining read. I guess, you could sum this story up as: girl (Siobhan) is in a long-term relationship with guy and thinks that he’s the love of her life. Guy cheats on girl, girl is heartbroken while guy is off parading with his “slore.” And then girl by luck of fate catches the eye of college professor (and he for her) and he propositions her for a relationship of sex only and nothing more. But of course, some drama occurs as the girl finds herself falling for her professor and then his old flame shows her evil face and causes trouble. 

My thoughts: Forbidden Attraction is like your normal taboo romances where usually one partner is off-limits except in this one, both are: professors and their students cannot be involved. Well, this book covers both points. 

With Siobhan and Professor Michaels hitting forbidden territory, it's only matter before the shoe drops and everything comes pouring out and not in a good way.

It's kind of a countdown to when everybody's going to find out about them and what will be the future for these two lovers? Are they meant to be or not?

I mean, with Professor Michaels coming off initially as “Don’t expect anything else from me, it’s just sex”, you can only expect that of course that it is not going to be the case with Siobhan.

It's obvious that even with his shady and sketchy exterior that this facade of his is beginning to crack and he's starting to feel something for Siobhan. But, with his ex and his secrets threatening to tear them apart, it’s just a matter of when sh*# hits the fan and where all the pieces fall.


I am now curious as to where the author is going to take book two as Siobhan and her Professor Michael’s relationship, if you can call it that, is now at a standstill and a turning point. I can’t wait to see what comes next!  The ending nearly killed me!  Aahh!! *cries*

     “Let’s go dance,” Jordan says.
        I look over at the professor whispering to his date and decide it’s either go dance with Jordan or become a third wheel to these two. “Sure.”
        I take my time getting up, both to let him have a full view of my ensemble and to get my equilibrium before attempting to walk in these heels. After I feel steady and confident in my walking ability, I put an extra sway in my hips as I sashay away.
        We head inside to the dance floor and I am instantly lost in the music. The crowd swallows up Jordan and I can no longer see her, but this does not stop the gyration of my hips. I suddenly feel a hard body pressed against my back and strong hands grip my waist. He smells heavenly—a delicious blend of woodsy and spicy. He’s riding my rhythm with his hips attached securely to my butt. I feel his erection, fueling my grinding, knowing I’m causing this reaction. My eyes are closed and I tilt my head back against his chest. In this moment, I feel sexy and desired. I resist turning to look at him to avoid spoiling the fantasy.
        I feel this stranger’s breath on my ear before he nibbles on my neck. I let out a gasp and he grinds himself into me more.
        “Such the temptress. I keep losing my self-control around you,” he growls.
        That voice. Oh my God. It’s . . . “Professor Michaels?”
        “Grayson, please. I’m not your professor here.” He spins me around to face him while slipping a knee between my legs. “I enjoyed that little show you put on by the way.”
        His hands are planted firmly on my butt now as he grinds me against his leg. My dress is riding up and I am afraid that any minute my bare ass will be on display for all to see. Feeling the hem of my dress rise, Grayson tugs it down and holds it in place without stopping his newfound rhythm. His cerulean blue eyes darken with lust and my nipples pebble against his chest. We stare intently at one another while the music fades in the background. “Where is your date?” I ask.
