Janice Sims now brings us This Time Forever, featuring as the heroine, Kerry Everett, Police Chief of Damascus, Florida; and the hero, Maceo "Mac" Kent, FBI agent and ex-Marine Drill Sgt.
PAST: Kerry and Mac have a past together from their days as marines. When they last saw each other, both made a decision to go pursue their own careers. But both leaving with broken hearts.
PRESENT: Kerry has a murder incident that occurs in Damascus. There are similiar signs about this murder that resembles an FBI case that brings Mac to Florida. Now it's been ten (10) years since they last saw one another. They meet once again, on page 80 to be exact. You will begin to feel throughout the story that love has not died between Kerry and Mac.
COMMENTS: I always look for certain things as I begin reading a romance book. For example,
(1) The pace of the story, how easily it flows for me personally. I don't want a book I have to keep taking deep breaths as to whether I have patience to keep reading it or throw it across the room.
(2) Now this is important to me, I want the author to at least introduce the hero and heroine within the first 100 pages of the story. I should not have to wait for over half of the book for them to make some kind of contact. I also want the plot to include the heroine and hero utilizing at least 60% of the book.
(3) The overall plot has to be interesting enough for me to find it difficult to put the book down so I can get some sleep at night.
Summary: Janice Sims has presented the answers to all my probing questions. The pace of the story itself was an easy flow that I kept turning the pages. It was like one of those all-nighter books that you want to stretch out for another day, so you can enjoy longer. She has the heroine and hero being together at least 60% of the book, which made me very happy!
I enjoy those stories where the hero and heroine are reuniting. In this story, the author does not allow the heroine to be angry with the hero about the past to the point you want to slap her for whining throughtout most of the entire book before they make some connection. You don't find that in this book, I mean Kerry and Mac actually communicate with one another and not only discuss the past and its affects but the present.
For those of us who were fortunate to get a peek at Kerry in her sister's story, Kerry is not short on words. So I like her type of personality. Kerry and Mac knew each other so well, you could actually visualize seeing this couple.
So in concluding my review here, I strongly recommend that you read this wonderful story. You won't be disappointed and your money will be wisely spent.
I also encourage you to check out her other published books:
Affair of the Heart, All The Right Reasons, Out of the Blue, For Keeps, A Bittersweet Love, A Second Chance At Love.
Her short stories in Anthology Collections:
"To Love Again" from Love Letters
"The Keys To My Heart" from A Very Special Love (Kianna Everett's story)
Now like when I was a child, I got just what I wanted for my birthday or Christmas present! That's right a book that once you start reading it you got to finish it. No matter if you got to go to work in the morning or now.
Kerry and Mac's story is just has wonderful as I knew it would be. Kerry and Mac are made for each other a fact they knew when the met years ago. The only thing is that they were to prideful to admit it to one another. So, you have the making of a really good reunion story, along with a little murdered and mystery and throw in a little humor you got yourself "This Time Forever."
If you read "The Keys to My Heart" you'll be happy to know that Kianna and Gabriel and Coco are in "This Time Forever." Now for those of you who haven't read "The Keys to my Heart" I suggest you read it first and then read "This Time Forever," this way you can get the full impact of these wonderful stories.
Janice keep writing these wonderful stories and I'll keep reading them.
