Best friends mending a heartbreaking feud, two hot boys, a weekend camping trip in the New Zealand bush away from meddlesome parents . . . what could be better?

That is, until they stumble across a hidden marijuana crop and its terrifying watchmen, and their dream weekend turns into the ultimate nightmare. Forced apart, the two couples spend the next 48 hours racing blindly through the bush, searching for each other. Hoping desperately to find their friends before the hunters do . . .


Such a fun read! Forbidden Territory brought me right back to my favorite part of New Zealand, through the rain forests of Te Anau and Milford Sound. It’s such a gorgeous part of the country, and the perfect setting for this story.
Mica and Lexy have such a great chemistry between them, much as I imagine the authors do. Their friendship is by far the best part of this story, with their back and forth banter, both heartfelt and cheeky. Tom and Eli are both slightly mysterious characters, leaving the girls constantly trying to decipher them. Certainly a realistic predicament for teenage girls. 😉

This is the perfect book for maturing teens! It’s fun and flirty, with a dash of danger and excitement, while remaining completely clean. Happy kids, happy moms!



Melissa Pearl and Brenda Howson have been best friends for well over a decade. Both mothers of two young children, both married to school teachers, and both lovers of writing, they have a lot in common. Having spent many vacations away together, they have become as close to sisters as two girls can get. It was on one of these holidays away that the Mica and Lexy Series was born.
Melissa is the author of multiple YA and NA books, written in a variety of genres. She is a fully trained elementary teacher, but is lucky enough to stay home and watch her kids grow. She is also spending every spare moment trying to turn writing into a fulltime career … and loving the process.

Brenda was the one who encouraged Melissa to start writing in the first place. Once Melissa got started, Brenda caught the bug; she has been writing for ten years, in between motherhood and working at a local high school in the computer department. She has won two short story competitions and been runner up in another. Forbidden Territory is her first published novel.

One woman stuck in a house full of boys, I immerse myself in books and save my sanity by reading, writing and blogging. I'll read just about anything, from any genre, and LOVE supporting Indie authors. <3
