Review: Forbidden by Jacquelyn Frank

From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes this first book in The World of the Nightwalkers—an exciting and sensual new spin-off series in which the Bodywalkers, an ancient race of the night, battles the evil forces who prey on them.

The unexpected happens in an instant. On her way to work, secretary Docia Waverley hurtles into a crashing crossroads, and she quickly begins to suspect that things will never be the same. Then, when a tall, blond, muscular stranger intervenes on her behalf, telling her it is his duty to protect her at all cost, what is just a feeling turns to proof positive. That is, as long as Docia’s savior doesn’t turn out to be a crazed kidnapper.

When Ram finds Docia, he has no doubt that she is his queen. But as this golden warrior sweeps in to protect her, he feels something more than body heat every time they touch. He is overwhelmed by a searing connection that goes deep into the twin souls inside him. A desire rises in him that is forbidden—this woman is his queen, the mate of his king, his leader, his best friend. And yet Docia is so vulnerable and attractive that she awakens a hunger in Ram that is undeniable, a carnal craving he cannot yield to . . . not without risking the very survival of the Bodywalkers.

I've read all of Jacquelyn Frank's Nightwalker series from the beginning and I was stoked when I found out she was continuing it. The start of this book was very very promising what with showing a snipped about Bella  and Kestra. But from there it went sideways for me even though I liked Docia and her relationship with her brother. I also quite liked Ram/Vincent. What I didn't like was that the whole Bodywalker thing it made them seem like they were multiple personalities. It was like a foursome with two bodies and a confusing one at that. Now some readers may like this type of going ons but for me it detracted from the story. Ms. Frank has her usual wonderful characters and plenty of action in and out of the bedroom so it wasn't a total bust. I give this book 3 stars and and will be reading the rest of them because I am hoping that the old nightwalker magic will come back and that this is just a one off. I was given this book for review via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
