Release + Review - All the Forbidden Things - Lesley Jones

All the Forbidden Things by Lesley Jones is LIVE on Apple, Nook, and Kobo and will be exclusive to Amazon on September 12th! Purchase today!!


When all that you want, is all that’s forbidden...

I’ve known him my entire life. 
Before marriage.
Before fatherhood. 
Before betrayal.
Now, he’s one of rock’s bad-boys trying to be good.
Trying to be the best father he can for his daughter. 
He’s my brother’s best friend. 
He’s my boss.
He has a wife.
Max isn’t mine to have, but I want him all the same.
And I haven’t survived all that I have to not go after what I want.

Her story is a tragedy, mine’s a publicity disaster.

Just when I needed her most, she walked back into my life, and the timing couldn’t be worse. 
With a newborn baby, a divorce, an album to record, and a world tour to plan, I don’t need the distraction.
She’s off limits.
She’s my best friend’s little sister. 
She’s my nanny. 
Billie’s a golden drop of sexy sun on a grey autumn day, tempting me into the light and a life full of possibilities. 
A life not meant for us.

It’s at that point I notice Billie climbing from the car. Although, if Mel hadn’t told me, I’d never have recognised the girl standing on my drive as Billie Wild.
She closes the car door and turns towards me.
She stares down at her feet as she moves slowly along my driveway. When she reaches the front of the car, she looks up. The bluest of blue eyes meet mine, and she stops moving.
Deafening silence.
No birds singing.
No traffic sounds.
The silence is so loud it hurts my ears.
What. The. Actual. Fuck?
She takes a step towards me, and my hearing returns. The gravel crunches beneath her green biker boots, a pigeon coos, brakes screech, engines rev . . . a bomb could fucking drop, but nothing, not a single thing can divert my attention from Billie Wild as she moves towards me.


Lesley was born and raised in a small working-class town in Essex, just outside of East London. She’s married with three sons and in 2006 they all moved to the other side of the world, settling on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula, about fifty kilometres outside of Melbourne, Australia.
Lesley is currently ‘a stay at home mum’, but in the past, she has worked at ‘good old Mark & Spencer’ for thirteen years and as a teacher’s assistant.As well as writing, Lesley loves to read and has been known to get through four or five books a week, when she’s not writing that is.
Her other interests are watching her boys play football… the round ball version. She’s happy to admit to being an addict of social media and owes a lot to her Facebook and Twitter family in promoting her book. Lesley is also rather partial to a glass or bottle of wine, a nicely chilled Marlborough Sav Blanc being her favourite.
Being a born and raised Essex girl, she will happily admit being a big fan of spray tans, manis, pedis, and is regularly, waxed, tinted and sculpted, although she doesn’t own a pair of white stilettos.

Johnaka's Review 
“Coming through the hard, 3 stars”

Max’s wife has filled his life with unknown. He doesn’t know what to do or what to think. All he can concentrate on is making sure his daughter is cared for. When his best friend’s little sister who happens to be a nanny comes back to town, he can’t help but ask for her help. What he didn’t know is that the girl he’s known since birth would become such a big part of his life. Will he get his happily ever after with Billie?

Billie has just experienced the worst thing to date in her life. She’s came home to heal. She doesn’t know what she wants to do. She has enough money that she doesn’t have to work but she can’t help but help Max. She always had a thing for Max despite their age difference then seeing him with a baby? Ovary’s exploded. Will she get the guy of her dreams or will she walk away broken in a different way?

First and foremost, All the Forbidden Things is not a cheating book. There is no cheating at all its just a messed-up situation. I love a good age gap and I love a good friends sibling and best friend falling for each other. All the Forbidden Things has both. Even with all the positives it had for me it was just eh, I couldn’t fall into the story. I don’t know if it was me (I soon fell into a reading slump) or if it was the book. Either way I think if you love a good age gap, best friends sibling, or maybe even a musician trope you should check out All the Forbidden Things.
