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.
In this book you have Sadia who a year ago lost her husband and is now trying to keep her business going and trying to take care of her kid. Jackson is back in town just long enough to check up on his sister, except he sees Sadia and he tries to stay a bit longer to help her till she finds a new chef. At least that is what he tells himself. He has always loved Sadia and would do anything for her. Did I mention that Sadia is his brothers widow? As lust comes to light along with secrets from the past come to light. I felt that the relationship was a bit messy and unnecessary drama between the two. It was nice to see her best friend Livvy(from the previous book in this series) make an appearance. All in all it was an okay read, but not for me.
