All I want is my happily-ever-after.
That’s all I’ve wanted since meeting Noah Miller.
From the day we met, the world has tried to keep Noah and me from being together, but now that I’m carrying his child, no one will be able to tear us apart. Or so I hope. But Noah and I have made some mistakes along the way, and the consequences are impacting the people we love. Worse, there’s a storm on the horizon, and it’s sure to cause serious devastation.
If we can get through this, we’ll finally be Rose and Noah; a family, forever.
But first we have to survive the road ahead. And happily-ever-after is a long way off.
*Contains spoilers for the previous books in the series*
Forever was one of my most anticipated series enders of the year. I absolutely fell in LOVE with Rose, Noah and there families and after the cliffhanger at the end of Belonging I was dying to find out how their story ended!
I was incredibly shocked at the end of Belonging, I couldn’t believe that Rose ended up being pregnant… it was definitely not the route that I seen this series taking so I couldn’t wait to see how that was going to play out in Rose and Noah’s future.
Rose, again, was wonderful. Even though she was pregnant, she was still the same risk taking, carefree girl that we seen in previous novels. Noah however was really growing as a character and that was probably one of my favorite parts. He obviously grew a lot from the start of the series to this book, but in Forever alone his development was fantastic. He really pushed the boundaries of his culture and religion and it was very interesting to see it happen.
Forever is told in alternating points of view: Rose, Noah, Sam and Sarah. I loved this aspect. In the previous books it was Rose and Noah but having the additional voices of Sam and Sarah really added an entire other level to the story. Sam plays a big part in Forever as he is one of the few people who knows Rose is pregnant at first, and Sarah’s part in this story is large as well. Sometimes too many POV’s make the story hard to follow but that was not the case in Forever.
I loved the final book in this series. There is one part that is absolutely devastating, and while the end of the book showed that it had meaning, I had a hard time coming to terms with it. I though the ending was PERFECT though. Absolutely perfect, and while it might not be entirely what you expected, it’s wonderful. Obviously I don’t want to say too much because it’s filled with twists and unexpected turns and happenings but I was very, very satisfied. I often dread reading final books in a series because I’m left unhappy but the Temptation series was fantastic from start to finish. I was incredibly surprised that I enjoyed it so much; I had never read anything about an Amish community before but Karen Ann Hopkins just pulls you into their story.
I highly recommend reading this series. It’s touching, wonderfully well written, romantic and the forbidden love aspect will tug at your heart.
