Product Description

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 & Noaha family, forever.

But first we have to survive the road ahead. And happily ever after is a long way off.

Helen for www(dot)bigbooklittlebook(dot)com
Complimentary copy from author in exchange for an honest review.

I was thrilled when Karen Ann Hopkin’s package arrived in the post with a copy of ‘Forever’ in. I hurriedly finished off the book I was reading and got started. I had thoroughly enjoyed reading Karen’s previous two books in this Trilogy of complicated and forbidden love between Noah an Amish guy and Rose an ‘English’ girl. ‘Temptation’ and ‘Belonging’ had drawn me in and roused my curiosity in a world that is often hidden from the rest of us. We got to see inside the Amish community, see their rules and customs and follow Noah and Rose’s story as they fall hard and fast in love and seek to continue their relationship despite family and community opposition.
Part of the challenge for Noah and Rose is to remain committed to each other despite the odds and even though they are so young. I couldn’t help but root for them as I’d grown to very much like each of them as they dealt with so much along the way including their own doubts from time to time. It’s been good to see them mature as well, from being a bit selfish and childish in their attitudes at the beginning, to growing as people. Karen has developed their characters well and I enjoyed seeing that growth.

‘Forever’ brings a lot of change for Noah and Rose. I don’t want to give too much away but we do already know that Rose is pregnant and that these will be further testing times ahead for them. This is not going to be an easy time for Noah and Rose and yet it’s good to watch them remain steadfastly committed to each other.

There is heartbreak in this story and I want to warn you so you are prepared with the tissues.

4.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 31 Jan 2014
By Sarah
Format:Paperback
(Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to Harlequin TEEN and Netgalley.)
This is book 3 in the ‘Temptation’ trilogy, and picks up where book 2 ‘Belonging’ left off.
**Warning – some unavoidable spoilers for books 1 & 2 ‘Temptation’ and ‘Belonging’.**
Rose is pregnant, Noah is in trouble for calling of his engagement to Constance, and Sarah is unable to court Micah because of Noah’s actions.
What will Rose’s father think to the pregnancy? What will be the reaction of the Amish community? And what does the future hold in store for Rose and Noah?

This was a good end to the series, but it wasn’t quite what I expected.

Rose was quite quiet in this book as she was trying to hide her pregnancy. I totally got where she was coming from, and her problems in confiding in people, but I also saw how it almost caused more problems. Rose’s pregnancy hormones also seemed to muddle her mind a little bit, and suddenly everything was about the baby.
Noah once again started this book by irritating me. I hated the way he constantly refused to change for Rose, and still expected her to be Amish, even after everything that happened. It just wasn’t fair of him to expect her to give up everything, when he wasn’t willing to do the same for her.

The storyline in this was okay, although things didn’t go quite the way I was expecting. Don’t get me wrong, things turned out okay, but it just wasn’t what I expected. Some things that I was expecting were a bit of a let-down, and I just felt like the book almost lost its way a bit in the middle.
The ending was happy, we got a proper ‘happily ever after’, and things fell into place that made this happen, almost to the point of this being a bit too fairy-tale-esque. It was a nice ending though, and I was glad that Noah and Rose were finally happy.
Overall; not what I expected, but a good end to the series.
7 out of 10.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 Stars 29 Jan 2014
By SandySomewhere - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you remember from my reviews of Temptation and Belonging, I’ve had some frustrations with this series. My initial frustrations in Temptation centered around Rose’s ignorance concerning the Amish culture and how both Rose and Noah had the desire to change the other into what they wanted. In Belonging these issues were compounded. Because Rose was working to become Amish, her feminist views collided with the Amish way of life. She waits entirely too long and truthfully never fully discusses her feelings with Noah about becoming Amish or about the possibility of him becoming English. At the same time in Belonging, both Rose and Noah continually make self-centered and immature decisions that show how utterly not ready they are to be making such huge, life altering, and permanent decisions. Belonging was definitely the most frustrating of the three books for me, and we end Belonging finding out that Rose is pregnant. This led me to believe that Forever was going to be nothing short of me pulling my hair out in order to trudge through the frustrations that must inevitably come as a result of Rose being pregnant. However, I was overreacting.

While Rose and Noah both had moments of immaturity in Forever, truthfully both of them seemed to be miles ahead of where they were in Belonging. As Anna Reads would say, I’m pretty sure I’m having a case of old lady syndrome though because all my life I have been a proponent of letting people get married when they want to get married. My brother was barely 18 when he got married, and I saw myself getting married about the same age even though I actually ended up being 22 when I got married. However, I’ve increasingly become aware of how young and immature most people are at this age, and as I’ve already discussed the immaturity that bothered me with Rose and Noah, their discussion of marriage definitely left me concerned.

For the most part, Forever didn’t hold the same intensity of frustration as Belonging which was really a good thing. I’m not sure I could have trudged through it had that been the case. The addition of Sam and Sarah as narrators helped to break up some of the struggles that would have come from having the book solely focused on Rose and Noah. Sam’s relationship with Summer and Sarah’s newly developing relationship with Micah gave the book more depth and provided some relief for the frustrations I’ve already discussed.

Ironically enough, Rose and Noah do seem to find the compromise I thought was impossible in my review of Temptation. Some of the compromise and aspects involved in it I wonder how realistic they can be but without having more information about the Amish culture I’ll never be able to answer that. Forever does have a couple of twists and events that sparked deeper emotions within me. But I’m concerned about the hinting around to Justin’s potential involvement with an Amish girl as to whether that means more books for the series or whether this is the end. I’m not sure I know which I’m hoping for either.

Forever ended up being a sweet and less frustrating ending to the Temptation series than I was expecting. I’m satisfied with the way that it ended, but feel some unease yet curiosity about whether Justin will get his own books or not. Forever gets 3.5 Stars from me. Have you read Forever? What did you think? Let me know!

4.0 out of 5 stars Romantic ending with lots of trials for our main characters to overcome. 5 Mar 2014
By Brandi Breathes Books - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have loved Noah and Rose's romance from the beginning, it is intense, first love personified, and the fact that their love has grown stronger through trials, temptations, and being torn apart says even more about it. So, when this book was available for review, I jumped on it, because I just had to know how things end for them, not to mention Sam and Summer, since Sam was introduced as a POV and I've become attached to him.
The multiple POV is easy, and moves the plot along, although I will say it can be a bit frustrating when you are coming to answers, or a kiss, or whatever and you are all of the sudden in someone else's perspective, but then I got caught up in what was going on with them.
The difference in religion and upbringing has always been on the forefront of Rose and Noah's relationship and that hasn't changed, in fact it's been complicated by Rose hiding her pregnancy from Noah (more on that later) as well as Noah's engagement and breaking up with Constance. It has created ripples in what should be a quiet and close knit community and it has everyone questioning loyalty, allegiances, and not only the actions of Noah and Rose, but his parents, how Constance's dad is reacting to the situation, as well as Sarah and her unexpected romance.
I had so thought that Rose and Noah had learned from the last book not to keep secrets and hide things, but then Rose hids this. I know she had all intentions of telling him, and then certain things that he said made her wait. And I probably would have waited after that first conversation because Noah is in deep and it is not only him that is effected, but I think that he knew, but he didn't want to admit it, so he was being a coward and leaving Rose to deal with it if he thought it was a possibility he should have stepped up. But I have to say, I really respected him in how he did step up once he knew for certain.
That said, I still loved every minute and flew through this book. I wanted more stolen moments with Rose and Noah. I love their passion and intensity and devotion to one another. I enjoy Sam's POV and his fierce protectiveness for Rose, and the sibling relationship played out. Him and Summer are also a great couple in other ways, its not forbidden romance, just pure boy and girl falling in love. Being in Sarah's head is great as well. She is so different from Rose, but I still respect her. She is devoted to her family, but she is also learning about how it feels to fall for someone, and feelings that she's never really encountered before.
This book was filled with some very hard, extremely emotional issues, and events. My heart hurt so bad, and I still have to wonder why. I know in some ways in brought about some needed changes, but it just seems too big, too painful, too hard. But I guess that is just life, and this is a contemporary.
Some of the twists took me completely by surprise, but it definitely had purposes in growing the characters and moving the plot along. The pacing was well done, and the world building for setting up the Amish community was fantastic as usual.
The ending was good, but I really hope there will be more in the series, because with adding the extra POV, I feel like those story lines weren't really wrapped up. I feel like it was a good stopping point with Noah and Rose at the end, not that I would ever complain about more of their romance.

Bottom Line: Romantic ending with lots of trials for our main characters to overcome.
5.0 out of 5 stars No love is forbidden 14 Sep 2014
By stratocasticlady - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is the third in a trilogy, and while I didn't get the first two books through Amazon, I can talk about them here. This is a wonderful story about two different lifestyles entwining and young love and a little bit of drama thrown into the mix. Sometimes love is considered forbidden, but then I am a big believer in fate and fate doesn't make mistakes. Forbidden love just means you have something worth fighting for; a love for all ages. I highly recommend this series if you are a fan of young romance with grown up circumstances. It's perfect.
2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing Ending 26 July 2014
By Jackie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Decent book an decent series, but as a 20 year old, I find it to be totally unrealistic. I don't think things would have realistically ended the way they did- and that truly disappointed me. Anyone who has watched 16 and Pregnant or Teen Mom knows that things would not had ended the way things ended up for Rose. So, if you have read the first two books I guess you just have to know how the series ends, but if you're like me and enjoy realistic endings, then this novel is sure to disappoint.
3.0 out of 5 stars Feeling ambivalent 25 May 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I very much wanted to finish this trilogy and started to read Forever directly after reading Belonging. I finished it the same day and while it ended up having everything I like in a love story, the more I think about it, the more disappointed I am. Don't get me wrong, Noah and Rose end up together with a positive spin on their future, so that is a definite plus. Getting there, however, was so full of even more drama.

I'll say this, I liked the series and feel that Hopkins has some real talent. I was just expecting something else, I guess.

Spoilers

I think what bothers me the very most is the complete 180 that Noah ends up doing. He's the one that ends up giving up so much for Rose and his willingness speaks of his ability to sacrifice, something that others complained he was unwilling to do in the earlier books. But, even if some in his faith were not being true to the precepts of the Amish way, him denouncing it just felt wrong. I firmly believe, and Hopkins did nothing to change my mind, that Noah was deeply unhappy about leaving his community and his way of life. He spent so much time discussing how he liked the simple life and how his faith was so integral to who he was, but leaves it because of, yes very difficult things, but passing things none-the-less. It made me feel like he was no longer true to himself and the person he was built up to be was a fraud.

I am left with the impression that Noah and Rose will finally have the future that they can be satisfied with, and they will be together which is the most important thing to them (and to the story, of course). However, coming to that point just really fell flat to me. Again, Noah and Rose don't talk enough, they don't try to get to any middle ground and compromise. The author had even set up a possible solution for them both with hints of a Mennonite future that could have appealed to both of their desires. Instead, it was one way or the other and rather than being happy with this ending, I felt let down. Honestly, I can't say what should have been different. I only know that I wanted something else and that the potential was there.
