FOREVER WITH YOU Synopsis:
In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…
Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.
Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .

~ 5 Forever Stars ~
Forever With You is the 5th book in Jennifer Armentrout’s Wait For You Series. These books are all stand alone New Adult books, that revolve around a group of friends. I have truly enjoyed each of the books in this series, some more than others, but overall this series keeps me coming back.
Forever With You was an overall sweet, funny and sexy read. This book doesn’t have a whole lot of drama built into it, but the dialogue and connections she formed with Stephanie and Nick and Stephanie and Roxy really made this book!!! Even without all the drama and angst we usually see in a NA book, the storyline was interesting enough that it held my attention all the way through. Now I will warn you that this book does touch on a subject that might be a trigger for some women. I know that it will hit home with many. But the way Jennifer covered this topic I thought was with compassion and truth. Every feeling Stephanie had I felt right along with her. The writing of this book was so flawless that it was easy to make a connection with these characters and feel everything they felt.
In this book we get the story of Stephanie and Nick. I have to be honest and say I didn’t really remember Stephanie’s character, but once I got into the story, Jennifer filled in the missing blanks for me. Stephanie is from the first book (Cam and Avery’s story) and Nick’s character is brought into the series in the third book (Calla and Jax’s story) he is a bartender at the same bar those two work at. Stephanie was a casual hook up/ friend of Cam and Jase’s. To me her character in that book wasn’t very memorable, but she has left a lasting impression on me after reading this book. What I truly loved the most about her character was that she wasn’t full of all that drama we see in other books. She knew what she wanted and she didn’t apologize for it. She was a person who didn’t do relationships and was fine with the one night stands. She knew that eventually she wanted to find love and have that family, but she wasn’t in a rush and wasn’t going to settle for anything but the all consuming love her parents had. So when she meets Nick and is attracted to him, it seems they are the perfect fit. Nick is also someone who only believes in the one night stand. What neither of them expect is to want more from each other. What they also didn’t realize was how much their lives were about to change after that one night together. I loved watching these two grow into so much more. I honestly thought they were perfect for each other.
I also really enjoyed seeing the other couples from the previous books. I LOVED Roxy in this book. She is the person I would want as my BFF. She added some much needed comic relief but also landed a shoulder to cry on when it was needed. I also liked Katie, she too was good for the comic relief, but what I liked the most about her was how honest and straightforward she was. She told it like it was, no holding back!!! I thought Roxy and Katie were perfect friends for Stephanie and Nick. I truly hope Katie gets her own story someday, I have wanted that since her character was introduced to this series.
If you are a fan of Jennifer’s, like I am, you aren’t going to want to miss this book!! Definitely one of my favorites of the series.
And don’t miss the previous titles in the Wait for You Series!
