Delaney Hart has come a long way from her wild youth, dating tattooed bikers at her father’s bar, The Bad Seed. But when his death pulls her back to Wildwood, California, she must stay to renovate the dive he left her. And also face the lies and secrets that sent her running ten years before.
When Wildwood’s chief building inspector, Ethan Hayes, shows up on the property, Delaney doesn’t recognize him. The last thing he wants to do is save the bar where his cousin died in a brawl. But the good boy from her past is all too willing to remind her of the bad girl she used to be. And one night of passion leaves them both in a compromising position.
The last place Ethan should be is in Delaney’s bed. Guilt, family pressure, and plans for a brewpub of his own make shutting down The Bad Seed his top priority…until his feelings for Delaney interfere. Because her future depends on the success of the bar’s renovation and his dreams are rooted in its failure, their forbidden romance may be destined for heartbreak

Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
When she’s not writing, Skye loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.
I don’t know if there are other series about the characters mentioned in this book or what but when I got to the last page of Forbidden Fling, I immediately wanted more. I am complete intrigued and captivated – I want to understand and know everything that happened in Wildwood.
Here’s the deal. Delaney has returned to her home town – not because she wants to but out of necessity. The place holds bad memories for her and she knows she’ll have to fight against any and all preconceived notions of who she is while she’s there.
Shortly after arriving, Delaney stumbles into Ethan and ends up with one of the hottest welcome homes – ever. However, Delaney has no clue initially who Ethan is and he does not offer up any extra details to help her figure the mystery out.
Eventually, you’ll find out that he has had a life long crush on Delaney but that he is also a weird sort of sworn enemy. (Crazy long story – their families’ lives are entwined and their histories together are tainted and kind of convoluted) It complicates this budding relationship and it’s make a future between the two difficult, if not almost impossible.
But it turns out that Ethan isn’t the only one with secrets. Both characters carry ones that could potentially hurt the other and it further muddles an already problematic situation. They need to make some pretty hard decisions but they are these amazing and strong characters, so you read they hope that they will eventually make it right.
When their truths are revealed, not only is the drama exciting but you’re completely rooting for this couple. You can’t help it. They’re good people who deserve a happily ever after today. I consumed their story in afternoon because I couldn’t find a stop that I wanted to stop. I loved it.
So I would definitely and highly recommend Forbidden Fling. It’s an excellent start to a new series and I cannot wait to get my hand on more from Wildwood. Grab a copy of this book today.
