    7. I enjoyed Mac and Callie s story It definitely proved that love can conquer anything I especially loved Callie s interaction with Jason, Mac s small son Mac s ex wife Audrey drove me crazy as she well should the woman was crazy She surprised me in the end What surprised me the most, however, was who was behind the drug gang The characters were well developed and believable Jonesy, Callie s nosy and gossipy supervisor, was by far my favorite All in all, I thought the story was well done.

    8. Enjoyed And ContinueI enjoyed this book Both as a love story and as a mystery Continuing to follow Callie s story and accepting her falling in love with someone after Kyle were proof that this author is becoming a favorite of mine I am looking forward to pay day tomorrow so I can continue reading of her books I highly recommend Jean Joachim s books to anyone who loves a good read.

    9. I loved the story and want to read the rest if the series The characters are well written and I enjoyed getting to know them throughout the book However, the author could benefit from a good editor Many times the phrasing was choppy, and there were several grammatical, spelling, and punctuation errors While they made the book harder to read, I enjoyed the story enough to keep going.

    10. This book touched my heart It was sweet and full of love The added mystery was a major plus for me Jean Joanchim kept me entertained from start to finish with her writing style I highly recommend this series

    12. Last I knew was ok with honest ratings on books didn t punish readers for less than rave reviews So everyone is aware that I HAVE read the book I m not going to give a book 5 stars if I don t think it was a 5 I m not going to not leave a rating at all if everyone did that how many readers would spend their money on a book with nothing but rave reviews to find out it sucked So, Did i like the book No It had a decent story line Had potential but just didn t read like a book I would enjoy Notice I [...]

    14.

    15. This has a slightly forbidden angle to it as Mac is a Dean and Callie is a student working on getting her Master s degree, but what makes this than a hidden tryst is that they are mature adults who actually understand what they are doing and its not just about sex This is a great slow burn love story where we get to see both Mac and Callie get to know each other while both dealing with their past ie Macs crazy ex and Callies dead fiance.This is no straight forward love story though, there are p [...]

    16. Callie and Mac s love story was a slow burn There was an attraction but they became friends first This book had a bit of the forbidden because he was a Dean and she was a graduate student working part time in his office There are lots of plot twists that include a cute toddler, a troublesome ex wife, a dead boyfriend, a mystery and some danger The plot was good and held my interest through to the end with all the action.I requested an advanced readers copy of this book and I am voluntarily givin [...]

    19. Wish there was a 3 and 1 2 because as a whole, this book was all right, but there were many moments when it shined which bump up its rating a bit to me 3 seems too low, but anyway The I read, the involved I became The begining hooked me for some reason, but just as quickly as I was engaged, I was annoyed There were points in the book early on where it seemed the writing was rushed Sort of went like this extreme exaggeration ahead, take with a grain of salt The protagonist Callie goes to school [...]

    21. After getting a chance to explore the writings of Jean Joachim with the introduction to Now and Forever Callie s story, I found myself HAVING to buy this book When I read the prelude to this series I couldn t stop crying at the REAL life events that unfolded and I HAD to read the next book to find out what happened to Callie and if she is able to move forward and have a normal existence.Callie was crushed from the loss of her fiances death and after two years of barely living she is forced into [...]

    22. Passion I ve been itching to get at you all evening Ever since you walked out looking like that, I wanted to jump your bones right here in the living room Watching those letches drool over you all night didn t make it any easier They can drool all they want, I m the one who is going to make love to you tonight, he said taking her in his arms, while her dress slipped to the floor.Meets perilCallie put her hand in her pocket and turned to walk out of the diner Not so fast Turn around Callie heard [...]

    23. First I will say, I could not finish this book The following is why This is just my opinion.The best way I can explain it is that the story feels like a re telling not a story For me, the writing lacked flow It felt disjointed.What bothered me the most was the jumping from one character s POV to another in what seemed like every other paragraph I doubt it was that often, but there were times that I became lost and had to re read to figure out whose head I was in This not only happened with the [...]

    24. This book was just OK for me Don t get me wrong I loved Callie and was just sad about all the lose she faced in her young life I really fell in love with Kyle even though he was dead I kept wishing he would come back even though I knew deep down he wouldnt The book was in several different POVs which wasn t a problem, but it seemed a little weird to me Now let s talk about Mac, I liked him at first and then I don t know what happened, bit I wasn t really feeling his and Callies connection It was [...]

    25. If you don t believe in true love and that it can survive then you haven t read this book Jean tells a story of two people that meet fall in love and marry So what else is new with that, eveything The events Callie and Mac go through would crumble a weaker team but their love stays strong and grows stronger with each page.

    26. What a heartbreaking story at first to me anyway , Callie returns to college to continue her education after losing her husband to the war in Iraq a couple of years before When she meets Mac in school, things are roughy at best, at least at first I trulyAD MY FULL REVIEW makaylasbookreviews.c

    27. Overly dramatic and about 20% longer than it needed to be I nearly DNF 3 times while reading it

    28. I really wanted to read this book since I loved the first one I am happy Callie found love after all the loss she s been through, but this book just didn t hold my interest like the first one.
