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.

Christie’s Review


I ABSOLUTELY LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!! It had it all…love, chemistry, a swoony rockstar with a heart of gold and a sassy, independent loyal woman who loves him!!!!

All The Forbidden Things is the perfect title for this book because it’s all about forbidden things. Max is in the middle of a nasty separation and now a single father to precious Layla. Billie is returning home to her family after being subject to a vicious attack. The two have known each other for years since Max is her older brother’s best friend. Neither expected the fireworks of seeing each other after all these years, especially Max. He knows he needs to stay very far away from her, but how long can he ignore the pull he feels towards her. 

I not only fell in love with Max but with Billie too! She is an amazing woman despite her mere age of 22. She has witnessed things in her life that not many people do, not only did she survive, but she fought to live a somewhat normal life. I loved her connection not only with Max but with Layla too! She is an old soul who loves deeply!

Billie has known Max all her life, and she has always had a crush on him. 

“He’s known me all of my life, but he doesn’t really know me at all, and yet I still feel entirely at ease and comfortable in his presence.”

Their connection is full of chemistry but also very deep and romantic. 

Max has lived that “rockstar” life, but now he has to think of Layla. He thought he was in love with his ex, but she shattered his idea of what love was supposed to look like. When Billie enters his life again, he is unprepared for the strong feelings she brings brings out, especially when he sees Layla in her arms. He wants it all with her. They definitely have an uphill battle to achieve the dream of being together. He is older than her. She is his best friend’s sister, and he is fighting to be free from his awful ex. 

 I love a flawed hero, and Max is exactly that. He isn’t perfect, but he is perfect for Billie. He loves his daughter, and who can resist a man like that. I know I can’t.

This is my first read by Lesley Jones, but it definitely won’t be my last. I’m so excited when I find a new writer, and I’m so glad I found Lesley Jones.

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.
