Happily Ever After isn’t a destination.
It’s a journey.
The FINAL book in the emotional USA Today bestselling Forever series.
Most days, I’m fine. I’m married to a hunk. Seriously. He rides a motorcycle, works in a garage, then studies for college on the side. And makes my toes curl, well, you know how.
But a long time ago, when we were young, something really bad happened to us. Bad enough to break us up.
I thought marriage would make things right. And it’s been happy. But something’s missing. The one thing we always wanted, but lost.
And my best friend just got it.
I know everybody envies my life. I’m a little wild. I hang with celebrities. I got married in the back of an ambulance by a rock star. And the baby girl who arrived at the end of that lights-and-siren ride is definitely a bundle of joy.
But my life isn’t as easy as it looks. With my husband about to hit big with his first album, and every two-bit floozy in the music industry hanging on him, I really need my best friends. I can’t get through this without them.
There is entirely too much misery in the world to manage the sparkly pink explosion that is Jenny and her baby. I’ve got so much on my hands already with my art mentor so close to the end. And Darion expecting our wedding to actually, well…happen.
I know the stories tell you that happily ever after is what comes when he pops the question and you say yes.
But life is really messy. And sometimes your horse-drawn pumpkin takes off at full gallop for a cliff.
That’s where I am. And that’s why I had to leave. Because before I can get to the big finish, I have something else I have to do. A bit of business I should have taken care of long ago, but I was only a teenager then.
I can only hope that by the time I get it done, I haven’t lost everyone I care about. Because when you’ve spent your whole life running, you forget that what really matters is your family.
FOREVER FAMILY can be read as a standalone novel, although it is best after learning the history of the girls in the other four books of the Forever series.
As seems to be the case frequently as of late, I have mixed feelings on this one. So again, I'm going to throw out there what I did and didn't like and let you make the call on whether you want to read or not.
Being a huge fan of this entire series I HAD to read this! I loved getting another look at all the couples I've come to love in these books. Life had been so hard for all of them I wanted to know that they had each found their HEA and life was going along splendidly. That's not at all what I got. The birth of Jenny and Chance's baby brings buried feelings back to surface for both Tina and Corabelle as well as new anxieties for Jenny. This book gives us the story of how they deal with everything and move past it. Again. So it seems that what I loved about this book is also what bothered me just a bit. I guess it's just the reality of the story. How even though we think we've moved past something those old feelings can be triggered again. Since I read for the pure pleasure of escaping reality for a time perhaps the story hits to close to home.
Forever Family -Entire series rocks!!
Every single book in this series is an absolute joy to read. U can feel the hearts of the characters...the good and bad. So happy I ran across this author and this series...a definite must read!!!
A perfect ending to a wonderful series.
I discovered Deanna Roy’s books a little over 2 years ago when I purchased Forever Innocent; I’ve been a huge fan of hers ever since – no matter what name she writes under. (She is also JJ Knight and Annie Winters.)
Forever Family reunites us with Corabelle, Jenny and Tina and brings us up-to-date a bit on what they’ve been doing. As the book blurb says, you can probably read this as a standalone but I think you’d really be missing out if you don’t have the history for each of these women. (There’s a boxed set for the first three books that will save you some $.)
While each of the earlier stories came to a very satisfying conclusion for me, I loved reading this book with additional information about these characters. There are parts of this book that will tear your heart out but it was worth every tear I shed while reading this book. Tina’s story was the most compelling for me – she really goes through a lot – but I enjoyed reading about all of them.
Deanna seems to have a knack for touching on all emotions, which is my favorite kind of book to read. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next now that this series is finished.
I almost forgot – the men in this story are pretty wonderful, too, especially Dr. Darion.
