Listeners note: His Forbidden Bride is the second book in The Very Bad Fairgoods Series but can be listened to as a hot and dark stand-alone.

Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

I've read/listened to a few of Theodora Taylor's 50 Loving States books, and I listened to the first The Very Bad Fairgoods story. Off the top of my head, I've listened to a shifter romance (a time-traveling shifter at that), a ghostly paranormal romance, and a couple of Fairgood romances, and they all have one thing in common - they have twists I didn't see coming, twists that make my jaw drop in surprise because surely Taylor didn't go THERE, right? Wrong! She definitely goes there. Now, in the case of His Forbidden Bride, I have to say I was not only surprised, I was shocked. Really shocked. In fact, I'm still not sure how I feel about one twist in particular, so in the interest of remaining spoiler free, I'll just leave it there and talk about how sweet this romance was. It was sexy, too, of course, but these two are so sweet together. Both have secrets, but hers is a lot more fun than his. I didn't see it coming either, but it turned out to be kind of relevant to our times. And I just loved Nitra's family. Clementine Dove narrates this one, and I've come to expect really good things from her. She always delivers a great performance, and this time is no different. The emotion, the sarcastic wit, the sass, the love - it all comes through in her narration. This story may be over the top and a stretch in the believability department, but there's no shortage of feels, and this pair does generate a fair amount of steam. So, taken for what it is - a fun fictional tale - it deserves some leeway in the amount of suspension of disbelief, and it makes for a thought-provoking story.
