Wrong to Need You: Forbidden Hearts by Alisha Rai

A Cosmopolitan Best Book of 2017!

Alisha Rai returns with the second novel in her sizzling Forbidden Hearts series!

He wasn’t supposed to fall in love with his brother’s widow…

Accused of a crime he didn't commit, Jackson Kane fled his home, his name, and his family. Ten years later, he’s come back to town: older, wiser, richer, tougher—and still helpless to turn away the one woman he could never stop loving, even after she married his brother.

Sadia Ahmed can’t deal with the feelings her mysterious former brother-in-law stirs, but she also can’t turn down his offer of help with the cafe she’s inherited. While he heats up her kitchen, she slowly discovers that the boy she adored has grown into a man she’s simply unable to resist.

 An affair is unthinkable, but their desire is undeniable. As secrets and lies are stripped away, Sadia and Jackson must decide if they’re strong enough to face the past...and step into a future together.

Alisha Rai is hitting it out of the park with this series. Better even than Hate to Want You (and if you’ve read that one, you’ll be happy to know that Livvy and Nico turn up here, too, eventually).

Sadia has her nose to the grindstone, trying to deal with the loss of her husband and all the bills he's left her with. She's doing a good job of it too, as long as nothing disrupts her schedule. When Jackson returns to town, that's a huge disruption that brings good and bad. Jackson has stayed away from home for his own emotional protection, not returning home even when his best friend Sadia emails him that his brother Paul has passed away. Sadia still isn't over that or the emails that Jackson never returned. Sadia's really trying hard to make it on her own, and I really liked that about her. I adored her sisters and her relationship with her family and the fact that she didn't ignore her sex life just because she was a widow. Jackson's return to town throws her into some turmoil. She wants him, but knows how much trouble it will cause all of them. There's a lot of family turmoil going on, and Alisha Rai has crafted a very interesting world here. Reading Wrong to Need You made me want to go back and read Hate To Want You, the first book in the series again. There are plenty of hurdles for Jackson and Sadia to jump before they can claim their HEA, but it's all worth the ride. The characters are interesting, the dialogue is crisp and true, and I just adore this world that Alisha Rai has created. Wrong to Need You works as a standalone, but you'll get more out of it if you read Hate To Want You first. Oh, and did you see these covers? Hottest covers of 2017! So if you are looking for a romance with a nice level of heat, interesting and diverse characters, good story, and intriguing world, you might like this series. I do. An ARC was provided for review.

Wrong to Need You is book 2 in the Forbidden Hearts series. I enjoyed the first book in this series so when I saw book two was coming out I had to get it. Since this series does cycle to another member of the family and their love interest in each installment, I'd say to read these in order. Sadia Ahmed is a single mom trying her best to run her deceased husband's declining cafe. She's struggling juggling taking care of her son and his activites, running the cafe that needs a new chef and also bartending at night just to have money to make ends meet has Sadia at wits’ end. That's when her brother in law comes to the rescue. Jackson Kane has always had feelings for Sadia, but after some major family tension he left the picture. He's back and more than willing to help out in any way he can. Working as a pop up chef, he already knows the ins and outs of the kitchen and just being there for Sadia makes her life easier. The feelings that start to form between them has both questioning if this is the right thing to do. Wrong to Need You is an excellent sequel to a series that's quickly becoming one of my favorites. I love that there's such a strong family element in this series. Between the Kane's trying their best to show they care for one another and the Ahmed's helping their sister as much as possible you really feel at home in this story. It gives you a realistic touch but balances it out with some drama. If you're a fan of Contemporary Romance, you have to try this series.

How have I never read anything by Alisha Rai before? Must. Fix. Soon. I absolutely loved Jackson and Sadia's story in Wrong to Need You. There's a whole lot of backstory going on with them--they were friends for a long time, and then so much happened (some of it we find out early on, other parts take much, much longer with tantalizing hints strewn along the way) and they haven't seen each other or communicated in ten years. Their relationship is a low build, because they both have a lot to come to terms with, both within themselves and in their relationships with others. Ms. Rai did a fantastic job of helping them to help themselves work toward something that could eventually be an HEA for everyone involved--and keeping me riveted to the page while she did it. Every single character in here felt well-drawn and true to life (even if I did sometimes feel like I needed a who's who chart when we got past the level of hero/heroine's BFFs and siblings--these are big, complicated families and relationships, with lots of past drama to take into account) and I have to say, I enjoyed reading about Sadia and her sisters almost as much as I did Sadia and Jackson. Their scene at about 80-something percent in actually had me in tears, and nearly had me wishing I had sisters of my own (sorry, Bro-Man. You know I love you). There's just enough Livvy and Nicholas in this book to make me add their story ( Hate to Want You ) to my TBR before I was even halfway through with this one, and the third book in the series ( Hurts to Love You ) is nicely set up by the ending as well--can't wait! Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A- I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Sadia and Jackson are linked by a past that makes their attraction for one another seem a little wrong and somewhat forbidden, but sometimes love knows no bounds. Jackson has loved Sadia since they were kids, but when trouble ran him out of town, it was his brother who claimed her for his own, but that chapter is over now, and she is a free woman. He knows starting something with her now would be wrong on many levels, but he just can't help himself... she needs him! When Jackson shows up back in town Sadia can't but be happy to see him, but him being around also brings up feelings that she has kept buried for the last ten years, and acting on them now just wouldn't be right. When he offers to help her at her cafe she is reluctant to accept his help, but she does it anyway, and soon they start to fall into a comfortable existence with on another... one that starts to take a hot little turn! Wrong To Need You is a forbidden love story that will tug on your heart strings, and leave you moved! I really enjoyed this one, the highly addictive story line kept me burning right through the pages, once I got started I just could not put it down! This is the second installment to the "Forbidden Hearts" series, and I must say that it is equally as fantastic as the first! Ms. Rai is quickly becoming a new favorite author of mine, she really knows how to write a perfectly well balanced romance novel! Highly recommend this series, Ms. Rai's forbidden romances are sure to give you the feels, and permanently curl your toes!! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this title.
