Forbidden Child by James Aiello



Tyler Porter


The wait is over. Forbidden Child is here! Thrilling and entertaining, like the experience on a crazy roller coaster. This story is going to make every man in America wish he was a pitcher for the New York Mets! And every woman is gonna want to be Christina Powers. WOW! What a ride! Totally off the chain!

Thrilling in the extreme, Forbidden Child is a definite page-flipper.

Mr. Aiello has woven a wonderful story which makes you turn the pages as quickly as your finger can perform the task. It takes you up and down and all over the place. His use of the fictitious probability of the implied genetics of the protagonist is superb. His ability to incorporate modern day issues into the story makes you think of how we as a society can be duped and controlled. A provocative story which makes you re-think your own reaction to these issues, all the while telling a great tale. I'm recommending this one to everyone, even those who don't usually read this genre of literature. It's more than a Romance, it's a Romance with social attitude.Kudos to Mr. Aiello.

A rich and compelling novel of love, sex, ambition, politics, Hollywood glamour and revenge. Forbidden Child introduces a woman of extraordinary talent and determination who lived in a world of deceit and betrayal, but survived by following her heart.In a style that is both entertaining as well as informative, Aiello shows us how both our highest aspirations and our most loathsome urges figured in the creation of our modern world. A must read....

What a great read! Complex characters woven into familiar events in our country. Author is not afraid to tackle complex issues and characters have many dimensions. Kept me in suspense throughout. Fast paced and delightful. When is the sequel coming out?

I loved reading this book. As promised by the author "FORBIDDEN CHILD grabs hold of your heart and mind and won't let go." I laughed and cried for Christina. It was an incredible roller coaster. I could not put the book down. The emotions this story invokes is unreal. I cheered for Christina during her triumphs and deeply felt for her during her tragedies. I recommend this book to anyone that wants to add some excitement to their life. Mr Aiello should win a pulitzer prize for this incredible story.

I just finished the book and I loved every page, especially the last page where you left us wanting more. As I read each page I couldn't stop thinking what a great movie this would make. I love the way you write and your talent is endless. So looking forward to the next book! You should be very proud of all your hard work for you really know how to captivate your reader, I for one could not put this book down. I pray someone has the good sense to make this a movie, for it will be a block buster!! 


Love the site Jim. Good Job. You are now an "overnight" success.

I found the book a very good read. I could identify with a lot of the history during those years. I'm not sure if a younger generation would appreciate or identify with the history as much as I did. The reader did not know what to expect next; it made you just want to keep going. I found the chapter on finding a soul mate and the spiritual connections you were making enlightening; it was pretty heavy pursuit of the spirit.

 It looked like you let it open for a sequel. I would consider buying another book.

Good job, a lot of excitement; the author has a lot of imagination and insight.

I just bought Forbidden Child from Barnes and Noble on Federal Highway on Monday. Its now Thursday and I have read half of the book already.. My husband id feeling left out. This book is great !  I like what an easy read the book is. I read at night with only a small light on. What an exciting novel. Mr Aiello is quite the writer. I can't wait to find out what happens next. Sorry Bob (my husband ). Ha ha.

I am an avid reader and I think Forbidden Child is one of the top ten books that I have read lately. The characters seem like the reader knows them personally. We feel for them during hard times and celebrate the good times with them. I would like to thank the author for such an exciting novel.
