5stars

Synopsis

In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .

My Review

Once again, Jennifer L. Armentrout delivers in every way that counts. Emotion and humor, sweetness and sexiness, friendship and romance. I loved Steph and Nick, both tough and resilient, but both also longing for love and belonging. Forever With You is the story of how these two people crash into each other, how they push each other away and how ultimately, they fall for the other, finding an unexpected forever.

We first meet Stephanie, who’s just moved to start a new job at a mixed martial arts center. Steph is feisty, direct and independent. She also loves the thrill of finding a hot guy and indulging in a one-night stand, no strings attached.

“I was a hundred percent full supporter of no-strings-attached hookups. However, I never understood, and never would, the double standard that existed. It was okay for the guys to take charge of their pleasure, but not women?”

And sure enough, when she collides with Nick, her breath hitches, her imagination lustily wanders, and she can’t help but gawk at the gorgeous stranger.

Nick is a charmer. He’s got swagger. And he’s also a bit hardened after the kind of life he’s led. Extremely private, Nick keeps his guard up at all times. He’s also a one-night only type of guy. Always.

“Nick was like a jigsaw puzzle where the most intricate pieces had been misplaced, and deep down I knew that no matter how manumits I would shake the puzzle and star over, those pieces would always be missing and I would never have the complete picture.”

And that’s exactly what happens. An incredible, unforgettable one-night stand between Steph and Nick. Problem is, they can’t seem to shake each other off.

Fate has other things planned for these two, however, and before they know it, they’re forced by circumstance to get to know each other. As newbies to relationships, they make mistakes, they push each other away, they fail to communicate when it matters most, but somehow, they work… they fit.

“Most people wouldn’t get it, probably wouldn’t even tolerate us, but together … we make sense.”

Their journey is full of heartache, and I felt it all, heart and soul. This is one of the most emotional JLA stories I’ve read, grounded in relatable, heartbreaking experiences.

“We got each other. No matter what. There is you and me.”
