Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It was Okay... When I finished this book it was a solid 4 stars for me. But, as I sat down to write my review I realized there were a lot of aspects of the book that bothered me. Giving it a little more thought I brought the rating down to 3 stars. Here's why... The book started off with a good start as the author introduces the main character Julianne, and her sister Chloe. Right off the bat I got the cutesy contemporary vibe I was hoping for. Julianne a creative artist and Chloe an over-achiever were heading to a party to kick off the summer. There Julianne meets Remi, a boy she instantly has a connection with. I was a little skeptical, with the first couple of pages already heading straight for instant romance. I mean I've heard of love at first sight, but their first interaction didn't seem realistic to me. But because it was a shorter novel I decided to see how the story would play out. By chance Julianne and Remi meet again on the beach and start to get to know each other. Julianne soon discovers that Remi is the son of her obnoxious neighbors trying to force her family out of their 30 year old home. Of course that results in some pretty mixed feelings. And then their is Chloe telling her that he is the enemy, that they need to spy on him, that he is a spy for his parents, that he can't be trusted, blah blah blah. She even goes as far to say that Julianne is a traitor to the family for dating him! And then she takes it all back when someone has a difference of opinion? I mean, come on! Every time Chloe was mentioned I couldn't help but roll my eyes. She was too much of an influential character for what the plot really needed. You could really tell that Julianne was only thinking certain ways because her sister wouldn't stop nagging her about how she should feel. That really got on my nerves! I think the writing style itself was perfect for a short summer beach read, and the plot itself was enjoyable. But, when you can't stand a character it tends to bring down your liking of a book, which is exactly what happened to me regarding Forbidden Boy.
