Forever With You by L.J. Holmes

Coryne reluctantly hired, for her own peace of mind, the all too handsome Keith Patterson and his crew to build a very special house on her time limits.

Moving a small camper trailer to the site, Coryne keeps a close eye on the progress. Problem with that is she also is forced to be in close proximity to that very handsome, all too deliciously seductive Keith Patterson.

Resisting him is a full time job, and one she would have had enough trouble handling, but he made it harder because he let her know he was not at all adverse to the temptation she poses. She must resist...mustn't she?

Follow Coryne and Keith right to the very surprising ending and Coryne's "Forever With You" moment.

You’d be forgiven, when reading Forever With You, that it’s “just another romance book”. Well, think again. Yes, it follows the great pattern of woman meets man, woman is attracted to man, man reciprocates the feelings, but with a twist at the end that you won’t see coming. Upon reading this twist, I was thrown into Question Land after a whispered “Oh!” came out of me because I was shocked at the book even having a twist.

The questions came quickly, but not in the way where I queried the book’s content because that’s all tied up with a shiny little bow, but more to do with Coryne and how her life is now, at the end of the tale. The twist shows that love is all-encompassing, it is unconditional for some couples, and despite what may happen in life, love really does win the day.

Forever With You is easy on your time limits and your pocket. It’s a nice little short you can pick up and read during a lunch break or while travelling on the train—something to help you indulge yourself in your need to read. But be prepared to have think once you’ve finished. I sat for a good five minutes pondering Coryne’s life, the lives of people like her, and felt a glow of happiness that despite some things we go through, the human spirit nearly always picks us up and helps us to go on.

I liked the images I got from the scenery where the house is situated. It made me feel I’d visited there.

The twist. Unexpected—and all the best twists are, aren’t they!—and the fact that it made me consider how some people cope with certain aspects of life.

Forever With You is a quick little number, one I’m glad I read.
