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.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed 31 Mar. 2017
By klh1995 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As much as I wanted to love the ending to this story. I didn't. I read all three books in 4 days and the ending fell flat for me. I honestly thought they were going to figure out the compromise of being Mennonite but instead we were left with Noah hating the English world he was forced to live in because he didn't want Rose to be forced into hating her life. There were so many tragedies that it seemed impossible for it to be a plausible story. What started out as a good Romeo and Juliet story ended up turning into a happily ever after that wasn't really happily ever after.

*Warning: This review may contain spoilers. Read at your own risk.

Review courtesy of The Tattered Page:

So, just to recap, this is the last book in the Temptation trilogy by Karen Ann Hopkins. This first two books are Temptation and Belonging. The storyline revolves around to teenagers and a good ole forbidden love. Noah Miller is Amish and Rose Cameron is not. How cool is that? There is no surprise that I could not wait to read the triology. Alas, I am writing that review for the last book. :(

For starters, although I though Belonging was a little slow for my taste, Temptation and Forever hit the spot. In Forever, readers get to see the rest of Noah and Rose's struggle to keep their love as well as all of the little bumps on the road. Noah and Rose still face the same problems. The Amish community not entirely ready to accept Rose and Rose's family not wanting to let her simply go, Amish psycho stalkers, not to mention Rose's bun in the oven and a fatal storm thrown in the mix. But by the last page I felt satiated instead like a worm on a hook, left out to dry for no darn good reason.

What I also love about this book is that we get Sarah's (Noah's sister) and Sam's (Rose's brother) point of view as well. Instead of taking away from Noah and Rose's story they added to it. Readers got a little extra side story with Sarah and Micah as well as with Sam and Summer. Stories that I would have loved to read more of.

"...I'm going to begin courting Edwin.'
His hand shot out and grabbed my arm. The heavy feel of it made the blood drain from my face. 'What...?'
'Are you crazy, Sarah? You don't even like him.'
'Course I do. And who are you to say so?'
Micah leaned in and said with a sureness that made me believe him, ''Cause you like me, that's why. Things will settle down soon between our families, Don't do something that we'll both regret.'" [page 15].

Well, if this review isn't convincing enough, you should find out enough. Noah and Rose's story (with a little bit of Sarah and Micah's) is definitely worth the time to read.

Happy Reading!

3.0 out of 5 stars Feeling ambivalent 25 May 2014

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars A hell of a ride. 28 Jan. 2014
By R. Harris - Published on Amazon.com

Last year, I read--err, inhaled the first two books in this series, and I've been DYING to read the final installment. When I saw this baby pop up in my email, it's possible I did a giddy reader dance.

Okay, it's more than possible. It totally happened.

So, after a crazy weekend, and a really long day, I opened this book up, hoping to get a few chapters in. I should have known better. I devoured the entire thing in one easy gulp, and I reached the end with a huge smile.

Without diving into spoiler territory, let me just say that all the characters get a much needed maturity boost, and the romance is as strong as ever. Family bonds are tested and strengthened, and Ms. Hopkins pulls out all the stops. I swooned, I cried, I laughed, and I got angry. It was a hell of a ride.

Totally recommend this one!
5.0 out of 5 stars No love is forbidden 14 Sept. 2014
By Jenni - 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.
