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?

Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade left a lot to be desired and I believe could've been an excellent book if somethings had been more greatly developed. This is in no way bashing the book in my mind.

I had high expectations for this book and it hardly brushed what I believe it could have been. The story was really short which made it seem rushed and it was missing a lot of key qualities that are needed for a great read.

The characters were hard to connect to because of the lack of building though I did enjoy the twins more than the main character or even the love interest. I didn't quite understand the bad guys and they are typically what I consider the best characters of a novel. A good bad guy has a great story and a great story makes a wonderful book.

Second, I felt the plot wasn't as developed as it could've been. I don't think that a bunch of people would suddenly crop up out of the population with powers and then no one would understand why. There HAS to be some common factor that led to the powers. BUT I really liked the idea of the story such as kids being rented out to the rich and famous but I am curious about what any of the other kids would do for them--I can see why Sam was rented out.

Overall, I loved the plot and the storyline. I won't deny that in any way shape or form but at the same time, I believe it could've been so much better if it hadn't been so rushed.
