Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves.
But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets—secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits.
Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach.
Welcome back to the world of Hudson fucking Pierce! This is an interesting one for the schmexy girls – lots of emotions through this whole book. Trish and I will be chatting our way through this review!
Jesey: Since we already know about Hudson and Laynie from the previous books we will be discussing our emotions as we went through the book.
Trish: Yep!! Trish is here and ready to go ape shit about Forever!! HOLLA!!

Jesey: Chapter fucking 1….what the hell do you think everyone is going to think?
Trish: Chapter 1!? Well Laurelin doesn’t disappoint in the “Angst” department that’s for sure. Talk about jumping right in. Um..what’s the question? How about what did I think??? Hudson, really Dude?? I guess I am supposed to have “faith” in him..Hard when Stacey’s got some real deal stuff to show Laynie…I knew that F’in video was gonna be his downfall…But what’s on it??? We don’t know…Laynie does…In Laynie’s words…
“The thing that could tear me and Hudson apart for good.”
But….then chapter 2….HOLLA!! Thanks Laurelin for that!!
Jesey: Seriously a relief in Chapter 2….just so you ladies know. I was in tears from the very beginning of this book! This was not how I expected for Laurelin to just jump into things….I think the readers will be shocked by the events that start off the book. So let’s talk about the steaminess of this book shall we??
Trish: Hudson out does himself in Forever…
Jesey: Holy hell does he!
Trish: So much amazing sex!! HOLY MOLY. Jesus what Hudson can do to her Lady parts…
Jesey: I must say that my favorite scene was on the boat!! No details but let me tell you, I will cruise on open water with that man any day!
Trish: OH snap!!!! Hells yeah!! One of my favorite quotes was,
Just one little word….
Jesey: Yeah….spread *fanning self* ‘nuff said LOL
Trish: I loved the boat scene…that honestly had to be one of the most erotic scenes ever…Not gonna lie..I needed a minute…but then there is more!!! Those two f*ck like jack rabbits….
“Bite your own hand to stifle your screams if you need to.”
“Ever since you told me you were bare I’ve been thinking about touching you.”
Trish: OH HELLS Yeah Hudson!! This book started off with a BANG!!
Jesey: Then….there was the angst…
Trish: OMG I was just gonna write that!! See, great dirty minds think alike!! OH we have to get to the angst now!! Damn, I was enjoying the fun stuff. This book gave me a freaking heart attack. I needed a damn support group!
Jesey: I was your support group!
Trish: Thank god!!
Jesey: For those of you who don’t know….Trish and I had an EXTENSIVE conversation where I talked her off of the ledge.
Trish: OH you think???? I cried when I got off with you too….Thing is Jesey…Hudson…broke ME!!
Jesey: This was definitely the most emotional of all 3 books, and it hits you…hard!!
Trish: I am way to invested in Hudson….I love him…and everything he stood for….and then BOOM!!
Jesey: Hudson is going to break your hearts ladies, I’m not going to lie.
Trish: Thank god you made me read back 2 different scenes…b/c when I read those two scenes for the first time, I just saw RED!! Had to close my iPad down, and say, FUCK!! Are you kidding me dude???? WTF!!! I was livid!!!
Jesey: I totally knew where you were coming from….truths come out that you don’t expect and it rips you to the core. Hudson had A LOT of work to do in this book.
Trish: Here’s one….
“I’m not running from you, Alayna. I’m saving you.”
Trish: Screw you Hudson!! I wanna punch you in the face!!! Alayna take a hike!! Move the hell on!! That’s what I wanna say!!! Best part is…Since you all probably haven’t read it yet, you have NO clue what we are talking about!!!
Jesey: But we know that can’t stay away from each other….they are everything to one another.
“You’re the center of my world, precious. Every minute of every day. Even when I’m not with you.”
Trish: Are you like ESP Jesey?? I was just writing that quote???
Jesey: *SWOON* Sweet Hudson sure is a panty melter! Great minds doll ;)
Trish: Hudson knows though..He’s knows he fucked up…
“It’s my worst mistake, Alayna. The most horrible of all the things I’ve done……”
Yeah…grovel….that’s right!! GRR!!!! Jesey hold me back!!! But we are forgetting Alayna….
Jesey: Oh Alayna…..back to her old ways, yes or no?
Trish: NO!! I am confident in her. The strongest Alayna we have seen yet! She dealt with this shit the best way she could.
Jesey: She did – although I did worry about her at some points.
Trish: This is why I love Alayna…
“Of course I still care, you asshole. I’m in love with you. You shattered my fucking heart.”
Jesey: Her description of how she felt got to me…
Trish: You go girl!!!
“It felt like a vice-grip. Constricting. Like someone had taken am organ from my chest and squeezed.”
Trish: Interesting because that’s how I felt…spot on Alayna..spot on!!!
So after Hudson hands Alayna’s organs to her…..how are you feeling about the rest of this disaster? Redeemable?? NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Well maybe!!!
Jesey: We will let the readers decide on that!
Jesey: Ok…I hate to bring this up but…Celia
Trish: Who’s Celia? I don’t know anybody by that name??? OHhhhhhhhhhhh!!! You mean the Twatwaffle!! OH yes!! Her!! Yeah hate that bitch!!!
Jesey: She plays a big part in this book, fucking things up as usual!!!
Trish: She was reason for my miserable mood that whole next day!! Ladies bottom line…this book will wreck you!!! It wrecked me!!
Jesey: That is an understatement!!
Trish: Jesey helped put me back together!! Thanks Jesey!!
Jesey: That I did! You’re welcome Trish! So….let’s sum up the book for the readers!
Trish: Okay so here’s it is: I love Hudson; always did and always will. But I was at war with myself over and over again. I really thought I would walk away from this book hating him and that bothered me terribly. Once I re read I realized I need to not see RED, and pay attention to the text, in the end, thank GOD I walked away a Hudson fan!! Or else, I was throwing in the towel. This book gets 6 stars are fucking Angst alone!!
Seriously, the Academy would like to thank Laurelin Paige for her 6 star performance in Forever with You. Also the Hollywood Foreign Press!! hahaha! Now I am just being silly!! Best way to close out this series!! HOLLA!
Jesey: I was all over the place in this book. I loved the characters and then I hated them…I threw my Kindle and then I cried on it…I couldn’t put it down and yet I had to walk away! Laurelin Paige has outdone herself with this one…you will not regret reading this book!
