by Skye Jordan (Goodreads Author)
TeriLyn's thoughts: **Forbidden Fling generously provided by the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**
Skye Jordan's story of two small-town born and bred people brought together by the under handed politics of one prominent family was full of fun. This author created a fictional town once rocked by the untimely and unfortunate death of a member of the aforementioned prominent family. Blame casting and stereotyping have forced the hands of the hero and heroine in their current situations 7 years later.
Ethan Hayes and Delaney Hart are the subject of much family manipulation in this book. They meet 7 years after the tragedy that rocked the town and much to each of their surprise find they have heated passion and chemistry that's off the charts. Skye Jordan writes those sex scenes so well and then couples the passion with brilliant sexual tension. Both Ethan and Delaney are charismatic, goal-oriented and interesting both separate and together. It's unfortunate they're both bound by the dirty politics and type casting of where they live.
Parts of this story as it delve into the family dynamics and the on going feud between families I found redundant and a little boring. Ethan and Delaney are both after something and they need each other to get what they want. How it unfolds between them is full of banter, self loathing and questioning, and excellent chemistry. Skye Jordan's third person writing really held my attention throughout without it I think the story would have suffered. I thought the book ended rather abruptly and wanted more closure for these characters. But I still recommend Forbidden Fling as an easy, sexy beach read good for any contemporary romance lover.
