Blurb- She reads minds.
He controls minds.
Together, they might get out alive.
Sam thinks she's months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old.
Only Sam isn't normal. She reads minds. And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything.
Drake wasn't raised as a 'Rent-A-Kid.' He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam.
When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn't a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape.
To survive, they must work together.
But will their powers be enough to save them before it's too late?
Review- When I first started reading it I thought "this sounds an awful lot like X-Men with a twist". And you know what, it is, but I really enjoyed it! From the first page Forbidden Mind is full of twists and turns, I could never guess what was going to happen next. There were so many unexpected incidents in it that I never saw coming. At every page turn I was wanting more. You should all know by now that I absolutely detest boring bits, so I'm glad to say that you won't find any in Forbidden Mind. It has everything you want in a good book, drama, action, mystery, romance and that evil bad guy that everyone hates.
I love the way Kimberly created Sam and Drakes' relationship. For the most part of the book they never see each other. Only through linking Sams' mind with Drakes' did they communicate. Making their bond through only talking to each other with the mind was really creative. I guess it touched base with the subject of looks don't matter. I like a hidden secret message. Whether Kimberly planned it or not, it definitely delivered a message to me.
The blurb really does sum up everything within the book so the only thing I can tell you is it is definitely worth reading. It's a great little story to escape to and will keep you thoroughly entertained. I will definitely be making time to read the next one. It was a refreshing change from the regular paranormal I read.
The greatest part is Forbidden Mind and it's sequel Forbidden Fire are on sale on Amazon in eBook form NOW for only 99c!!! So now you have no excuse to not read it.
