About this ebook

"The Forever series has really touched many women's lives. Each story has been beautiful and realistic." ~ Fire and Ice Book Reviews

"At 20% on my kindle I'm already in need of a cold shower." ~ The Eclectic Reader

Jenny is a girlfriend-for-hire, the platonic kind.

But her sugar daddy has fallen in love -- with someone else. Now she has to end it publicly by making sure the paparazzi "catches" her with another man.

She just has to find the man.

Chance has been hitchhiking across the US, playing and singing for tips. An unexpected invitation to sing includes a beautiful girl with pink dreadlocks who only has eyes for him.

But the collision between Jenny and Chance is more emotional and intense than either of them expected. Chance takes off, but Jenny has to find him, because what neither of them realized is that sometimes a single night can be the beginning of forever.

"The emotions that each of these women experienced hit very close to home." ~ Smut Book Junkie Book Reviews

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, even with the baby. I’m a little wild.

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.

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.

"An emotional and satisfying story." ~ Xtreme Delusions Book Blog

They tell mothers like me, a woman whose baby has died, that a new pregnancy will bring a rainbow baby. You know, the beauty after the storm.

What they don’t say is how hard it’s going to be. How scary. How emotional. That at the lowest point, I will completely give up hope.

I do have a saving grace. Several, in fact. Gavin, my hot, sex-on-the-kitchen-counter, loves-me-on-my-bad-days husband. He’s been with me since the beginning. And I have Jenny and Tina, girlfriends I met along the way. They’re the good ones. The ones who bring you Kleenex and vodka.

But I also have you. Tens of thousands of you who read my story and have cheered me on, waiting for me and Gavin to have a healthy baby. It helps me, knowing you’re out there, waiting, hoping. Some of you have lost babies yourselves. You know what I’m about to endure.

So it’s time for the happiest happy ending of all. What better time than at Christmas?

(Don’t forget your tissues. And maybe the vodka too.)

Finish the series for one discounted price. You won't regret it.

This is a really wonderful series! **Forever Bound:** The story is told from alternating points of view and I love that in this type of book. Sparks fly between Jenny and Chance and they have one mind blowing night together. When pictures from that night hit the tabloids and internet Chance decides to take off again; he and Jenny didn’t even exchange last names. When Jenny goes to Chattanooga to look for Chance she finds out why he left home and learns more about the person he is. While parts of the story seem somewhat unrealistic this is romantic fiction and I read it for what it is – a way to escape reality and this story allowed me to do that for several hours of reading pleasure. I’m not really doing justice to this book with my review; sometimes it’s hard for me to really describe why I like a book. All I can say about this one is that once I started reading it I couldn’t put it down. **Forever Family:** 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. **Forever Christmas** I strongly suggest that you read the other books in this series before reading Forever Christmas; you at least need to read Forever Innocent so you get the backstory for Corabelle and Gavin. These two young people have really been put through the wringer. When they were teens they had a baby together that died of a heart defect. Now Corabelle is pregnant again and she is terrified. Gavin is scared, too, but he remains a bit more optimistic about how things will go with this baby than Corabelle. Never having been pregnant myself, it's impossible for me to really understand how Corabelle feels after having a baby die and then get pregnant again several years later. The emotions that she goes through are heart-wrenching. Deanna Roy really knows how to write an emotional and satisfying story. She takes us through Corabelle's pregnancy, told in first person, alternating between Corabelle and Gavin. As a reader I felt all of Corabelle's doubts, fears and pain; she is so certain that this baby won't make it either and there will be a repeat of what happened with baby Finn. Fortunately, we already know from the blurb that this will have a happy ending; Deanna would never be so cruel to make Gavin and Corabelle face such a loss again even though such things happen in real life. While parts of this story might tear your heart out it will be mended again by the end of the story. I'm so glad that Corabelle and Gavin finally get to have the family they've always wanted. Thank you, Deanna Roy, for giving us another wonderful book about Gavin and Corabelle.
