THIS IS FOREVER, an all-new “mesmerizing” and “captivating” standalone romance a new – to – me author Natasha Madison, is available now – check out my review on the blog today ❤
Becoming a teen mom at eighteen was not what I expected, but then again, neither was being a single parent. Still, I wouldn’t change my past because that boy is my world.Hockey is the only thing my son seems to care about, so I work two jobs to make sure he can play. I’d do anything to make sure he doesn’t suffer because of the bad decisions his father made.When he won a whole summer of hockey training, I knew in my heart he was going to have an amazing time.What I wasn’t prepared for was meeting his new summer coach.He was magnetic, powerful, and a player—in all forms of the word.If my life had taught me anything up to this point, it was how to avoid making bad decisions, and Justin Stone was the definition of a bad decision.I could never be a woman his family approved of. Even if I wished I could be.Justin
Growing up as the son of a hockey God is one thing. Growing up as the brother of a second hockey God is another. I had big skates to fill, so it was a good thing I loved every second of it.
Summer was my off time, my time to let loose, but when they ask me to coach a hockey camp for underprivileged kids, I couldn’t say no.
But when she walked in holding a little boy’s hand, my heart stopped beating. Or maybe it started for the first time.
They were a package deal, and I knew this—wanted it more than I’ve ever wanted anything. It didn’t take long to realize that no matter what happened,I would do anything to protect them.
She is the only one I want to be with.When push comes to shove, I have to prove to everyone that this is my choice, and This is Forever.
This is Forever is apparently the fourth and the last book in the This Is Series – but since this is the first book I picked up in the series; I can completely assure you; that it can be read as a standalone.
I rarely read romances with Hollywood Stars/ Professional Athlete heroes; mostly cause the player attitude of almost all of them is something that gets old and just on my nerves – but single parent romances are my kryptonite – so that aspect of the blurb of this book pretty much sealed my intention to read it.
Justin, a professional ice – hockey player; doesn’t take anything beyond his family and his game seriously – isn’t looking for anything forever or even a commitment when he purposefully bumps into the mother of one the little boys part of his Non – Profit Camp for underprivileged kids.
Caroline, on the other hand, adores her son and will do anything to give him all that he needs and required to thrive in his life. Becoming a teen mom wasn’t part of her life; but she has taken onto the role with aplomb, even if she has no idea what and how she will make ends meet.
With her past constantly trying to derail her present and her future; a romance with a professional athlete is the last thing on her mind.
The attraction and connection between Justin and Caroline is instantaneous; and while Justin is willing to explore EXACTLY what it is about Caroline that captured his attention; Caroline is the one who is more reticent to acting on the attraction. Caroline KNOWS that both of them are from different worlds, worlds that shouldn’t ever meet.
But Universe has different plans for both of them; one that they would never see coming.
This is Forever was an emotionally captivating romance between two individuals who deserve a little happiness in their lives – and not just that, I respected the fact that while the player attitude of Justin was referenced to at the start of the book; but once Justin was enamored with Caroline; it was just Caroline for him.
We also have a a huge family support backing Justin; and it was wonderful to see Caroline and her adorable son become enfolded into the family like they were long lost family members.
All in all, This Is Forever, my first foray into Natasha Madison’s world is one that will make me reader her backlist titles when I end up in a slump or just want a good, wholesome romance with a HEA! We all have those days of wanting something good and at times, cheesy to read; now don’t we?
