Forever with You by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Title: Forever with You 
Author: Jennifer L. Armentrout 
Series: Wait for You #5
Publisher: Avon
Release Date: September 29, 2015

In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever.

“She’s going to break his heart.”

This book was so good! I had a silly smile on my face after I finished reading it. I even told my husband how cute it was. By now, he understands my crazy love for fictional characters. 

From the moment JLA said she was writing about Stephanie, I knew I was looking forward to her story. Remember, Stephanie is the girl that had a thing with both Cam and Jase before they met their true loves. 

Steph has moved away from home and close to her new job at the mixed martial art center. She's carrying one of her moving boxes the first time she meets Nick. Nick is not only gorgeous but available. He invites her to the bar he works at and Steph can't resist going there. After a very passionate encounter, they both know the drill. Neither is ready for a relationship. A one-night-stand is the only thing they are looking for except life is tricky that way. 

I was swooning all over the place with Nick. He had a way of showing his feelings with actions. He had this hidden sweetness, loyalty, and protectiveness that makes him so appealing to me. 

As for Steph, she was a strong heroine. A normal girl with a normal libido. She wasn't mean or rude. She actually was someone I would love to be friends with. In a way, she was vulnerable too and I loved that Katie and Roxy were there for her when she needed support.  I'm hoping Katie gets a book. 

JLA has written so many of my favorite series including this one. I can't wait to read Fire in You

Cliffhanger: No

4/5 Fangs

This was yet another swoon-worthy and addictive read in the Wait for You series! I love this series, and I am so sad seeing it slowly come to an end.

I was a little hesitant going into this book because I wasn't sure if I would like the main character, Stephanie. However, Jennifer was able to make me fall in love with her. Stephanie was a lot more sensitive and thoughtful than I thought she would be. She was a strong woman and I LOVED watching her take down stereotypes for women. I was on the verge on fist pumping in excitement due to how awesome she was. 

Nick was as sexy and swoon-worthy as I was expecting. I was very happy to learn more about him since we haven't learned a lot about him in the previous books. I though his romance with Stephanie was not only steamy but very sweet. I really enjoyed watching them open up to each other and slowly fall in love. 

There were some predictable storylines in this book, but there were also things that I was not expecting! This was an emotional journey and I found myself enjoying the ride. 

I am so excited to read the next book in this series, even though I am not ready to part with these characters! Fans of Jennifer, this series, and contemporary romance will definitely enjoy this book.
