Forbidden Mind (Forbidden, #1) Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I recently had the honor of reading this book when Kimberly asked for a couple people to review the book before it officially released. I have to say that it was hard to put it down once I started reading it. It was that engrossing and hooked me in from the beginning.

Sam seems shy, at first, but she believes that the people behind Rent-A-Kid are taking good care of her and is looking forward to the moment when she can go out into the world and make it on her own. Her life is going just the way she wants it and she’s best friends with two of the most amazing paranormals that she can honestly call family.

She’s also very determined to do a good job for the people that she works for. Granted, she hates the fact that she’s destroying the lives of some of those she comes to care for in the process, yet she knows that what she’s doing will put away some of the most sadistic, and undeserving people, that she’s ever come across.

One simple mistake catapults her into a nightmare of which she thinks she’ll never wake. Her saving grace is Drake, another paranormal whose life has been inadvertently linked to her own. She finds herself falling in love with a man she’s never met – one who has her questioning everything that she’s ever believed in. She soon realizes that her entire life is a lie and that Rent-A-Kid isn’t all that it seems to be. Together, they must find a way to set themselves free and place their lives within their friend’s hand in hopes of trying to discover a way to set all wrongs to right.

When she mentioned that it was like XMEN meets human trafficking, she wasn’t kidding. She puts quite a spin on the idea that it leaves you wanting to read more and more. I’m so looking forward to the next installment of this series.


Available for purchase via the following retailers: Amazon, BookieJar, and Smashwords.

About Kimberly Kinrade:

I was born with ink in my veins and magic in my heart. As a child, where others saw shapes in clouds, I saw words. But I was also an entrepreneur at heart. So when my business arrangement with the Tooth Fairy ended, I went pro by writing my fantastical stories and selling them to all my neighbors.

Fast forward . . . um . . . many years and many college degrees later . . . and I am now a published author after a long career as a journalist and freelance writer.

Though I have written in many genres and fields, I am most passionate about the world of the paranormal and fantasy. Look for these exciting young adult paranormal novels coming soon from Evolved Publishing.

Forbidden Mind (a trilogy): She reads minds. He controls minds. Together they might get out alive.

Death by Destiny (a trilogy): She was born to power, power that could destroy worlds. He was born to stop her, whatever the cost. They didn’t plan to fall in love. Will it save them or lead to their foretold destruction?

The Reluctant Familiar (a series): When fate takes hold of her life and thrusts her into a world of gods and goddesses, Agnes must decide: Is she a normal 13 year old girl, or the most powerful witch alive?

When I’m not writing, editing and writing some more, I spend my time with my three little girls who think they are princess ninjas with hidden supernatural powers, our two dogs who think they are human, and the one man who is my soul mate and writing partner.
