On the outside, Bita appears to have it all under control. She’s a no-nonsense, strong-willed, force to be reckoned with. On the inside, though, she’s spent most of her life dealing with her pushy Iranian mother, ever concerned father, and overbearing younger brother.
But that’s all about to end.
Bita is determine to stand on her own two feet. She’s purchasing her first home, and ultimately, her independence. When Bita meets Ramtin, the sexy, older real estate agent, she gets more than she bargained for. What was meant to be a simple property transaction, blooms into a fierce desire that sweeps her off her feet, leaving her breathless.
Now they have to make their relationship work despite their fifteen-year age gap, and interference from their traditional families. Ramtin is everything she never knew she dreamed of, that is, until something unexpected becomes an all-or-nothing deal-breaker, and Ramtin may not be all in. Bita must decide what’s worth fighting for and if Ramtin is worth the final risk: losing her heart.
Forbidden by Time is the third book in the Forbidden Love series. You don’t have to read the previous two books to read this one.
Negeen Papehn gets better with every book. This one is my favorite of hers so far. It is an enchanting tale of how two people find love despite the age gap. She hit all the feels. The story made me laugh and cry.
I didn’t care for Bita in the previous books. The reader gets to see the non-bitchy side of Bita, and I actually liked her. I was rooting for her throughout the story. I mean, who doesn’t deserve to find love? Especially, love with a very handsome man?
I thought Ramtin was adorable. He was a total gentleman throughout the whole story. I do wish we had more of his POV and see his troubles. The glimpse I got of him left me wanting for more.
The story was great. The characters were relatable and likeable. I can’t wait for her next work!
