Vanessa Florence Grandeville, a Beverly Hills socialite and a spoiled brat from birth, celebrated her twenty-first birthday in Honolulu with her wealthy friends. By complete coincidence, in just one day, she kept bumping into Michael, a fisherman from a neighboring island. Vanessa hated and humiliated him, but Michael fell in love at first sight.
Vanessa and her friends chartered a yacht and set out to cruise for the weekend when complications arose. A violent storm caused their boat to capsize, and they fell overboard. The Coast Guard rescued everyone, except Vanessa, who drifted away. In a strange twist of fate, Michael found her at sea with a head injury and amnesia. He saved her life, but was he really a hero?
In that one moment in time, unexpected events that were rather remarkable caused their lives to collide. Was life playing tricks on them? Would they ever be able to overcome their differences?

The same story is told in the movie ‘Swept Away’ featuring Madonna. A proud, arrogant, and merchantile, and selfish woman is placed in a situation where she has to shift her behavior to survive. I really enjoyed reading this book since it gives more time to contemplate about people’s situational behaviors.
‘Forbidden Love (Spoiled Brats Book Series 1)’ is a psychological and romantic work. I am sure women will love this book for a lot of tender and warm moments. On the opposite side, men will discover different patterns of female behavior and psychology throughout the book. This story teaches us that women are highly adaptive creatures. In order to survive, a woman is ready to get rid of her arrogance and pride. However, when she is put in a better situation and she is not in needd for a man anymore, her arrogance comes back.
