"She reads minds. 
He controls minds.
Together, they might get out alive.
Sam thinks she's months away from freedom. After spending her life in a secret school, rented out to the rich and powerful as a paranormal spy, she is ready to head to college like any normal eighteen-year-old. 
Only Sam isn't normal. She reads minds. And just before her big going-away party, she links to the mind of a young man who changes everything. 
Drake wasn't raised as a 'Rent-A-Kid.' He was kidnapped and taken there by force. But his exceptional physical strength and powers of mind control make him very dangerous, especially to Sam. 
When they meet, Sam is forced to face the truth of her situation, and to acknowledge that not all is as it seems in her picture-perfect world. For what awaits her on her eighteenth birthday isn't a trip to college, but an unexpected nightmare from which she may not be able to escape. 
To survive, they must work together. 

But will their powers be enough to save them before it's too late?"

Mini Review. 
I am so surprised by the praise this book has received in the reviews. Forbidden Minds was not a good book. Despite its fast pace, it was still boring. It doesn't captivate the reader's, well my, attention. 

Firstly, at only over a hundred pages, the story moved at lightning pace. One minute Sam and Drake are getting to know each other and the next they are seemingly in love. She gives no real timeline so for all I know this could have happened between a matter or days or weeks.

This leads to that because the book was short, there was little detail or filler to create a real story. I read it in about an hour or less. Are you afraid of using paper, Kinrade? You're a writer, use paper. 

The story itself had great potential but then she throws in a very strange plot twister and then the story seems to go downhill.

Which brings me to point three, the story is not well written. The writing is bland and unexciting and reminds me of an English Essay for school.

Final Thoughts.
I would say don't bother buying or reading Forbidden Mind.
