He’s loved me since the day I was born.
He’s taken care of me.
He’s awakened me.

Tor. My father’s best friend.
Fifteen years older than me, he’s always been my protector. The one I should never, ever want.
But I was born to be his.

She’s always loved me.
She’s shattered me.
She’s healed me.
Kenzi. My best friend’s daughter.
I held her the day she was born, and I never let go.
She’s forbidden to me. But she’s the only one that really gets me.
We’re slowly being torn apart by everything we love.
Everything we want.
Everything we desire.

And now I want the one thing I can’t have... I want her.

Kenzi one day old
Toren fifteen years old

“We want you to be her Godfather,” Asher says as he gently lays his newborn baby into my arms. I have to tear my gaze away from her spellbinding eyes to look up at him from the chair I’m cradling the baby in.

“Me?” I repeat, glancing over at Ember in the hospital bed, who beams back at me with a tired, yet genuine smile.

“Yes, you,” they both say at the same time. “If it wasn’t for you, we probably never would have met,” Ember adds, grabbing Asher’s hand. “And we wouldn’t have this beautiful little baby. We know you’ll always protect her.”

“That’s right, man. You’re Uncle Tor now.”

I’m an uncle. And my two best friends are parents. And we’re all fuckin’ under sixteen.

But Kenzi Allyster Valentine would change us all forever. She needed us.

“Wow. I’m honored, guys. No doubt, I’ll always be here for her.”

I kick back the pang that hits my stomach. I didn’t get the girl…but I got something better that I never expected. A gift in the form of a little tiny hand wrapped tightly around my finger, huge eyes like gems staring up into mine like I was the most amazing person in the friggen’ world, and the first glimpse of what I could already tell was going to be a heart-stopping smile.

At that moment, a connection was born.

That was it.
She owned me.
My niece.
My god-daughter.
The love of my life.

You know the saying "You can't help who you love?" That quote has never been more real for this story. Sometimes in life we have this ideal outlook on what we want for our futures and whether we like it or not, we cave to what we think is socially acceptable.

Who we fall in love with shouldn't come with any type of disgrace or pain and for Kenzi and Toran, their love story was one in the making. They just didn't know it yet.

"I think all relationships start with an invisible line, and even though we can't see it, we all know it's there because we can feel it.

Kenzi has always been wise beyond her years. Growing up with rock star parents, shes seen the world through adult eyes. Being a Seventeen year old Senior, you would think that going to parties and hanging out with friends would be her top priority but it's not. She loves spending time with her dad and his band along with his best friend Tor. 

Knowing him since she was a baby, Tor has been a permanent fixture in her life. But one moment caused them to look at each other differently and that forbidden attraction has them crossing a line.

Toran is fed up with the same ol drama when it comes to his on again off again relationship. His love for rescuing animals and making his mechanic shop a successful bussiness, has been his top priority. Having someone who doesn't feel the same way about what he's interested in, is making him re evaluate his love life. His love for his family and a best friend that he would do anything for is all that he needs right now. But there's one girl that's been in the background and now he's starting to see her in a whole new light.

One forbidden moment.

Two unlikey lovers.

Three broken hearts in the making. 

I don't want to give too much away but I will say that I freakin LOVED Tor. He was such a sweetheart and I loved how his conflictions were portrayed. Having feelings for Kenzi was something that he fought so hard and let me tell you, it wasn't easy reading about it sometimes. And I absolutey loved the flashbacks.I think the author did an excellent job making us feel more connected to them by doing that and we saw how Tor felt about Kenzi during that time frame. 

If you love a beautiful forbidden romance, then you NEED to read this one. It was a pure love story that makes you think.

I have a passion for the bad boys, those covered in tattoos, sexy smirks, ripped jeans, fast cars, motorcycles and of course, the sweet girls that try to tame them and win their hearts. My debut series, Ashes & Embers, follows the lives of rock band members as they find, and sometimes lose, the loves of their lives.

Born and raised a Jersey girl, I now reside in beautiful New Hampshire with my husband and our multitude of furry pets and spend most of my time writing, reading, and vacuuming.
