After having one of the worst experiences a young teenager could endure at the hands of cruel musicians, Christine Mayne's rock star brother Quinn tried to lock her away from the world. She had to fight to live her life, go to college, get her master's and enter her PhD program. Now, she's determined to complete her research on group dynamics by touring with Bleeding Vengeance, even it means deceiving her brother and lying to the band's fabulous lead singer, Cliff Tracey.

Cliff Tracey hates being manipulated, lied to and deceived. He'd know, having gone through a string of exes who had done just that. When he thinks he's found a kindred spirit, and a beautiful babe to boot, imagine his surprise - and disappointment - when he learns she played him so she can tour with his band to complete her PhD. When he finds out why, he knows he's in double trouble because Quinn Mayne will kill anyone who touches his sister, and Cliff Tracey has all sorts of plans for Christine Mayne that involves more than either of them ever expected.

Title: Forbidden Song Author: Brooklyn Ann Publisher: Boroughs Publishing Group Series: Hearts of Metal Book 5 Reviewed By: Arlena Dean Rating: Five Review: "Forbidden Song" by Brooklyn Ann My Thoughts.... I loved this series 'Hearts of Metal Book 5 'Forbidden Son' that featured Cliff Tracey who was the lead singer of rock band, Bleeding Vengeance and Christine Mayne who was the over protective younger sister of Quinn Mayne who was the lead singer of rock band, Vicious. At this time Christine was wanting to work on her PhD dissertation in Psychology studying the dynamic of a rock band relationship. Now the only thing about this was getting a band that would let her study them. With her brother Quinn being so protective and all how will this happen? This will be quite a good read where one will find out a lots of what goes on with this metal band and a few others bands like Rage of Angels. I did enjoy this read as we see how well the story will all come together in 'this sweet and sensual roller coaster ride that is full of angst and self realization as the past events fuel the unexpected connection between two very different people.' In the end will Christine who is struggling to get control of her life after a sexual assaulted during her teenage years in which her brother Quinn blames himself being unable to let her go [after ten years] and live her own life in her own way especially since she is now a grown women of twenty-three? However, from all of what has gone on in her life has presented problems causing Christine to feel she had to tell lies to get what she wanted. I didn't like the lies she felt she had to tell to her band friends but oh well after it all comes out I am sure she even felt sorry for the lies she felt she had to tell. Now, to get the whole story to why Christine did all she did you will have to pick up "Forbidden Song" to see how well this author brings it out so well to the readers. Be ready for a read where there will be drama, emotions, humours moments, angst, passion, tears, along with some hot sexy scenes that will keep your attention all the way through this interesting storyline. I enjoyed seeing growth of both of the main characters by the end of the read. I will say that the ending was finished up so very well and definitely leaving the reader with a sweet HEAFN.

When I saw that this book was about Cliff getting his HEA, I wasn't real excited for it. Cliff wasn't an interesting character to me when he was first introduced. A bit of a jerk, a womanizer, and even the main heroine didn't like him much when she finally met him. But the rejection Cliff received from Kat helped him grow in Forbidden Song. He learned that just because he's a pretty voice doesn't mean he's going to always get what he asks for or wants. But then enters Christine. He tries to keep a cold shoulder to her. He tries so hard to not like her. Christine is held under the thumb of her other brother Quinn. It seems forced to have him be so adamant about her staying away from the music scene. I mean, why not ask a favor of your good buddy Klement and make sure she's traveling with a band you know and trust for her to write her dissertation, instead of risk her traveling with one that you don't know much about or one you don't like? At least you would know where she's at. You could still get plenty of drama from the known numerals in that equation, instead of having the lies and deceit knot. I like that Cliff grew as a character. I don't like that Christine was mentioned a single time and we knew nothing about her but yet she's a big deal because she's the little sister of a main character from a previous book.

This is the fifth book in the Hearts of Metal series but I promise it can definitely be read as a standalone. I know this because I’ve only read the previous book yet I never felt lost. I love how the author was able to weave so many characters into one book without making it feel convoluted. All of them felt true to their nature, including “slutty” Cliff, who can still be a jerk at times but now that we start seeing things from his POV it’s impossible not to have feelings for the guy. Christine’s independent spirit causes more trouble than not but even so she was a lovable character because it was not mischief what drove her but an honest will to live her own life. I felt this book centered more around the dynamics of the band’s members and their personal struggles, but even so it did not lack in the romance department. Christine and Cliff’s relationship may take a backseat at times but it’s always present throughout the book. Their emotions are all palpable and when they were together it was all but fire on the pages! The mix of drama and funny, laugh-out-loud moments made this book pretty enjoyable. And the fact that we get to visit with all of the other bands, including Rage of Angels (from the Bride of Prophecies series) makes it a memorable one as well. In short, I think this story is the perfect tease because if anyone picks this one up before the previous books in the series will want to get them all and start reading them asap. ***I received this book at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

I think this is my favorite Bleeding Vengeance story. Christine's past is tragic and her brother has made it worse. I loved how she was striving to become independent, even though she used some subterfuge to get there. Cliff was a surprise for me, considering his reputation and actions in the other books, and I enjoyed seeing this side of him. I was a little emotional as this story unfolded with happy tears at the end. I highly recommend this book and series. I received a copy of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.
