The Synopsis:

With a tortured past, she’s a cat-shifter who refuses to get close to anyone. Yet she can’t seem to resist the leader of the vampire protectors.

Phoenix Kaplan has never felt a connection like the one she has with Dante Leonidas. She might service him monthly, allowing him to feed from her blood, but as much as her body tells her differently, she knows it can be nothing more, not with her insecurities and inability to be intimate with a male.

That is, until she realizes the one thing she desires most in the world is something he can give her…and she propositions him to impregnate her.

She’s never wanted anything more than to be a mother, and all she needs is this one thing from Dante.

Although he should refuse, Dante can’t resist the temptation. He’s addicted not only to her blood, but also to the enigma that is purely Phoenix. And he is determined to prove to her that he can give her much more than what she asked for.

She might protect her heart with an impenetrable wall, but he’s willing to do whatever it takes to break down that wall in order to get what he desires most in the world.

My ‘Blogging Reader’s Review’ after reading ‘FORBIDDEN ADDICTION (Forbidden Series book #4)’:

*May contain Spoilers if you haven’t read the other novels of the Forbidden Series yet.*

This review is for the long awaited and much anticipated fourth novel of the Forbidden Series titled: Forbidden Addiction by R. L. Kenderson. This series never disappoints and continues to deliver with sexy romance, suspense and an enthralling story-line that will keep you hooked. I absolutely love the fact that this story is so intricate and diverse with its characters. It’s never focused on only a couple of characters and that keeps their world of shifters, vampires, and humans very fascinating and entertaining.

If you enjoy multiple P.O.V.’s(point of views) in a story, this one offers a variety for readers. There are five P.O.V.’s from: Sentinel Shifter Phoenix Kaplan, Guardian Dante Leonidas(Vampire), Guardian Hunter Esmund(Vampire), Guardian Lexine Harlow(Vampire), and Guardian Sterling Wardell(Vampire).

Phoenix Kaplan is a Sentinel Cat Shifter who had recently survived a kidnapping and the horrible treatment from her kidnapper. She has a strong attraction to a Vampire Guardian named Dante that makes her feel things she’s never felt toward any man before. There’s only one problem, she won’t allow herself to get closer to him because of her history with the opposite sex. Phoenix carries so many fears hidden behind her tough exterior, so will she be able to find her happiness or will she always be stuck behind her past issues?
Vampire Guardian Dante Leonidas doesn’t understand his attraction to Phoenix, who is nothing like him and he finds it very hard to ignore it. When Phoenix gives him an outrages yet intriguing offer, he must decide if he’ll help her out. If he does see it through, will he be able to truly help her the way she needs most?

Just when they thought things would calm down after killing their enemy Gerald, something else begins occurring. The Cat Shifters and Vampires have made an alliance since their leaders have married. It seems it has come at a cost by those who don’t agree with that alliance. Will they catch those behind the vigilante and growing violent acts before someone is harmed?

Guardian Hunter Esmund has always felt something was missing with his attraction toward the opposite sex. He practically has given up on looking and just keeps things simple. When he meets wolf-shifter Quentin, he begins feeling things he’s never felt before. There’s a genuine attraction. But could this just be a curiosity or is there something developing that he can’t ignore? And how could this effect his role as a Guardian?

Vampire Guardian Lexine Rocha has always had a crush on fellow Guardian Dante but he’s never felt the same for her. Out of spite, she made friends with a group of vampires that disliked the new pact made between the vampires and the shifters. Lexine must choose between her duty as a Guardian and her new friends. When she finds herself in a difficult situation, will she be able to find her way out of it? How will Guardian Sterling Wardell do when he discovers that Lexine has been hiding something from all of them?

This series will take readers on an enjoyable journey into the world full of intriguing characters and a story that never falls short. I highly recommend “Forbidden Addiction” and this entire series to anyone looking for the next novel and series to get lost in. It’s definitely worth it! I’ve yet to be disappointed by any of these wonderful novels in this entire series. Such an amazing blend of strong and at times, imperfect characters. Check this out for sure! 🙂
