Review: Suddenly Forbidden by Ella Fields

Suddenly Forbidden
 by Ella Fields 


I thought he'd always be mine,
even when I was forced to say goodbye.

We were never meant to let go,
but it happened anyway.
Too bad I didn’t know someone was waiting to take my place, or I would've held on a lot tighter.

Two years later, we were exactly where we'd always planned to be.
I'd kept my promise.
He'd forgotten all about his.
Not only had he moved on, but the person he'd moved on with was my best friend, leaving me to begin college with a broken heart.

I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to tell you some other guy stepped in, repaired my shattered pieces, and made me smile again.

This isn't that kind of story.

My heart might have been broken,
but it refused to fall out of love.

WARNING: this book contains cheating. 

Suddenly Forbidden stole my heart, and it’s still holding it captive. I’ve tried to tell two different people about this book, and both times, I teared up like a little bitch. Let’s see if I can make it through this review without a full on sob fest. Here goes nothing!
“I’m gonna marry you someday, Daisy June.”

Daisy and Quinton, best friends and childhood sweethearts, grew up together, shared every first, and loved each other before they even understood what that meant. Life, a known bitch, threw a wrench in their plans when Daisy’s father got a job in another state. Having to leave each other devastated them both in every way.
“The moon and the stars. It didn’t seem right for one to exist without the other. Yet here I was, being forced to do so anyway.”

Not knowing how to handle such intense heart break, they both made decisions that lead to them losing touch with one another. It wasn’t easy, but Daisy and Quinton tried to resume their life as best they could. Each of them having different ideas about what would happen between them in the future.
Because without the stars, the moon is left alone to battle the dark.”

Two years later, Daisy goes away to the college that she and Quinton always talked about attending. She hopes that he hasn’t forgotten her, and once she gets there, she begins searching for him almost immediately. When she finally finds him, he is kissing her best girl friend from the town where they grew up, Alexis. Quinton rushes over to talk to her immediately. However, things don’t wind up going the way Daisy hoped, and she goes back to her dorm room devastated. 
“My heart, even now, refused to listen. It was failing to comprehend what my brain kept repeating to it. That access to its counterpart was now suddenly forbidden. Or maybe, it simply felt too betrayed to care.”

Quinton was destroyed when Daisy broke up with him. He thought he was never going to see her again, so he tried to carry on some semblance of a life without her. Alexis was there to help him pick up the pieces of his broken heart, and after a while, he let her. Seeing Daisy again makes him realize that he had been putting a band aid on a gunshot wound. 
“Some things were simply irrefutable and inescapable. The stars, the moon, and the way my heart would always beat in sync with hers.”

Daisy tries desperately to move on, but when she realizes Quinton still has feelings for her too, that becomes nearly impossible. Soon, neither of them can hold back the pain and the love they feel for one another no matter how hard they try. How do you stay away from someone that has always been yours but is now suddenly forbidden?

“That was the thing about first love. People often said a first love stayed with you long after you met your second, third, or even fourth love. What they failed to mention was that kind of permanence resonated deeper for some and made it almost impossible to let go. Leaving you to walk the earth feeling as though you were constantly missing a part of yourself.”

O.M.G. The feels! The motherfucking feels!! If this book doesn’t evoke some sort of emotion in you, then you have no soul! Lol I haven’t read a book that made me feel this way in a long time. This story consumed me in every way possible. I couldn’t put it down, because I couldn’t bare not knowing if MY heart was going to be okay.

Ella Fields is one hell of a writer! I felt every emotion Daisy and Quinton felt throughout the story. My heart warmed, bled, and mended right along with theirs. I didn’t just read this story. I experienced it. Everything in this book felt so incredibly real from the characters right down to the farm they grew up on. That takes amazing talent, and this author has it in spades. If you never read one of her books, you’re doing yourself a great disservice. I will read every single thing she writes from here on out without even looking at the blurb. That is how impressed and in love I am with this book. If you’re a fan of romance, books that give you all the feels, or just damn good writing, one-click this one immediately!
