Release Blitz & Review: Forbidden Hearts by Corinne Michaels


Forbidden Hearts by Corinne Michaels is now live!

First rule of being a nanny? Don’t fall for the single dad, even if he is smoking hot.

But that’s exactly what happens when grumpy small-town sheriff Asher Whitlock reluctantly hires me to take care of his daughter for the summer. Neither of us is thrilled with the arrangement, but he’s desperate for help, and I need the money for grad school this fall.

All we need to do is keep our distance and remain professional . . . turns out, that’s easier said than done.

Instead of focusing on my future, all I see is the strong jawline, crystal-blue eyes, and rock-hard body right in front of me. We try to resist each other, but we end up crossing every line until I’m in his bed.

I tell myself it’s just this once.

Okay, twice.

All right, every night.

But it’s got to end–he’s fourteen years older than me, with a kid and a stressful job. Have I mentioned my dad is his boss? Then there’s the past I’m trying to forget. Secrets aren’t easy to keep and mine are getting too big to hide.

Walking away is never simple but when I do, I can’t look back.

Even if it means leaving behind the man I was never meant to love.

5 Stars!
Oh it’s good to be back in Sugarloaf! Forbidden Hearts is a small town romance set in Sugarloaf, a town you’ll know and love if you’ve read the Arrowood Brothers series by Corinne. It’s also an age gap (he’s 14 years older) grumpy/sunshine and single dad/nappy romance… so basically all the good stuff! 

I loved the dynamics between Asher, his daughter Olivia and Phoebe. Asher coparents with his ex and their relationship is a healthy one (yay!). While his ex is going to work overseas for a few months, Asher has Olivia stay with him full time which means he needs to find himself a nanny.. although it proves to be difficult to find a nanny who knows ASL, which is a must since Olivia is deaf. 

Enter, Phoebe, the daughter of his boss, who has left her grad program early and ends up moving in with him and instantly fitting into their lives. Despite some hesitance from Asher, Phoebe and Olivia’s relationship is amazing, they get on so well and I loved seeing how their relationship blossomed so quickly. 

Asher and Phoebe are attracted to each other straight away but Asher remembers a trouble maker and Phoebe want’s to prove herself to him so they don’t act on their attraction straight away but when they finally can’t stay away from each other, the chemistry flies off the page… it is so good. The build up of tension was perfect. 

I loved these two together and loved their little family with Olivia involved. These characters are great. Phoebe is fun, brave, smart and relatable and Asher is so grumpy, but the good kind… he’s got a heart of gold and is super protective of those he loves. I loved seeing them both fall for each other. 

I loved everything about this book and would highly recommend!
