    Unexpectedly Happy

    Unlike a lot of quick romance novels, I think Kaye did a good job in connecting her readers with her characters. Because of their history it didn't feel like they fell in love too quickly or unreasonably. Unfortunately the ending felt rushed and a bit silly, but overall this is a much better read than I thought it would be.

    Amazing love story

    Marco is struggling with PTSD and Alyssa moved to where he is after graduating college. An amazing love story about a girl who has always been in love with her older brothers best friend, struggling with their past and trying to figure out their feelings for each other. Must read!

    What a fantastic read that has quickly landed itself on my Favor

    What a fantastic read that has quickly landed itself on my Favorites of 2012 list! If you are looking for a contemporary romance that has beautifully written characters, tons of sexual tension & a love story that will capture your heart - then look no further than Her Forbidden Hero.

    Marco Vieri is such an amazingly well written & developed character. He was member of an Army Special Forces unit until he was injured and became unable to serve. His injuries have left him feeling like another person & unable to do simple things that he has always taken for granted. He no longer recognizes himself and worse, he doesn’t like who he has become. He has shut out everyone close to him and refuses to let anyone in. His hurt, guilt, longing, despair & anger were so palpable that I wanted to go through the pages and comfort him. When Alyssa comes back into his life he is torn between the person he used to be & who he has become.

    Alyssa (such a great name ;), LOVED it!) has the world at her feet. She has just graduated college & she’s back in her hometown looking to land a job where her longtime friend, Marco works. She has loved him for as long as she can remember and wishes that he could see her as more than just Brady’s little sister. After being sheltered & protected for most of her life - she wants to show everyone that she is independent and can stand on her own feet. She has finally come out of the shell that years of abuse, at the hands of her father, put her in and wants desperately to show Marco the woman that she has become. Her spunk, spirit, empathy & love, for Marco, radiated off of the pages for me and helped me fall in love with her just as much as him!

    Marco & Alyssa’s story is not an easy one, but that makes their ending so much sweeter and more deserving. The issues that, as an injured soldier, Marco must deal with on a daily basis were excruciating. His journey to find himself, to make peace with the things he cannot change & to accept his differences, had me in tears. The love, compassion & understanding that Alyssa showed him during this journey, had me bawling like a baby.

    Her Forbidden Hero is a magnificent story about love & acceptance and has earned a well-deserved spot on my Favorites of 2012 list. I know, that if you read it, it will be on yours as well! Well done Laura Kaye, well done!

    Excellent

    ## Excellent story. I loved all of it. The heroine was beautiful, hard working, sweet and witty. And the hero was HOT. I loved the way the author told the story of ptsd. And the lake scene (yowza)! Amazingly sexy.

    Loved it!

    What isn't to love? He's a war hero, her brother's best friend, her protector (then & now) and needs some protection of his own to get past his battle scars.

    Falling for your friend's brother or your brother's friend? What girl hasn't done that?
    Her Forbidden Hero finds Alyssa having fallen long ago for her older brother's best friend, Marco. Marco, a tortured war hero who's changed from when Alyssa knew him.
    Once again, Ms. Kaye pulls you quickly and deeply into her character's lives and makes you root for them, root for their "forbidden" love. After falling for Caden (Hearts in Darkness) and Owen (North of Need), I should have expected to lose my heart to Marco too.
    A compelling love story you won't want to miss.

    Really enjoyed.

    I am not much for romance novels, but with a Military back ground, this one caught my attention. Marco was a very well written ptsd veteran. I grew to love him quickly. Aly is an amazing match for him. It makes me wish that my war torn friends will find a girl like that to help them with their nightmares. This bookhas opened my eyes to a new selection of books. My only complaint..... it ended to soon.

    Thank you, Laura Kaye, for Marco! I've read all of Laura Kaye's

    Thank you, Laura Kaye, for Marco!

    I've read all of Laura Kaye's published work up to date, and I know well enough now that anything new from her I must read right away! I savored every bit of Her Forbidden Hero. Ms. Kaye shines again in creating a story with the right balance of angst, steam, and heartfelt moments, while introducing a well-developed cast of characters with a familial sense of quality.

    Meet Alyssa Scott. She's fresh out of college, stubbornly independent, adores her older brother Brady, and has been in love with her brother's best friend for a long time. Marco Vieri...holy hotness *fans self*!!! What can I say about him? With brown hair, blue eyes, long fingers, and a lean-chiseled body, Marco is a loyal friend through and through. He was in the army special forces and nightmares torture him every night. He hasn't seen Alyssa in a few years, but now notices how she's all grown up when she starts working in the same bar. Both of them have changed and both want to protect one another, but is it OK to give into their feelings?

    One of my favorite aspects of this story is the dynamic relationship between Marco, Alyssa, and Brady. Through memories and flashbacks, we find out why these three ended up growing close, and why they care and look out for each other. Marco and Alyssa...whew! They butted heads at times, but that's because it's obvious they love each other in more ways than one. These two seriously had to sort out their feelings, especially Marco, who has issues he doesn't want Alyssa to know about. It all just makes this into a friends-to-lovers story one should not miss! I was left smiling so big my cheeks started to hurt!

    Oh, and should I mention Marco plays the guitar and drives his grandfather's black '67 Mustang? He takes very good care of it too. Man, I love a talented, sexy guy with a hot, classic car! Now, do you understand why I need to fan myself? Holy hotness, indeed! :)

    Who hasn´t been in love with your big brother´s best

    Who hasn´t been in love with your big brother´s best friend (or your friend´s big brother in my case)???

    That is the premise of the book, Laura Kaye can write romance books in a compelling way. I was hooked from the first page and couldn´t put it down until I turned the last page on my kindle.

    The characters are easy to relate to and are not the same people they were a couple of years back. Marco is a tortured war hero and Aly is his best friend littler sister, the problem is she is no longer little.

    I really enjoyed this book and can´t wait for Kaye´s upcoming work :)

    Pick it up, you won´t be disappointed!!
