49% of Americans believe their government officials are honest. I don't know these officials, or their supporters, but I know their secrets, and 49% of Americans are wrong.
My employers pay me well to be right, to know things others can't. But I don't know why they brought that boy in, strapped to a stretcher, barely conscious. He asked me for help when I could give none.
I'm a wealthy spy, a talented artist, a martial arts black belt, and a prisoner. They tell me that on my eighteenth birthday, I will be released, free to go to the college of my dreams. It's my eighteenth birthday, and a man in black is at my door. I know he's not here to free me.
I know, because I can read minds.
My name is Sam, and this is my story.
So begins the tale of Sam and Drake--from the time they link minds, forging a bond that leads to an unconventional romance--to their fight for survival against the corrupt, twisted organization known as 'Rent-A-Kid.'

*~*~*~ MY REVIEW!!!~*~*~*
It probably can be bumped up to a 3.5 rating to be honest...
Forbidden Mind is a slight twist on the X-Men. Growing up on the X-Men and watching as new mutants came in and the story unfolds I can wait to have my multiple questions I have from this first book in the series to be answered. The story line is a mix of originality and copy cat as I have seen it before but Kimberly does a lovely job to add small alterations to add it as her own. She has lovely characters that sometimes fall flat in a few random places but for the most part they are great and really help pull you into the story. I can't wait to read book 2 and see how many questions are answered and how many new questions arise. A very lovely read that is between short and medium length.
