Age Group: Mature Adult
From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold’s life everything was forever changed. After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life was heading down Pleasantville Lane. Everything was perfect.
Or so they thought.
With help from his parent’s inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure, utilizing all his free time. What was once their life- carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship. But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it’s Alexa’s happiness. There’s nothing Nolan Pratt won’t do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.
When Nolan’s past resurfaces- a past that Alexa didn’t know existed- will it all be too much? Will Nolan’s devotion to Alexa’s happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the only thing that has ever mattered in his life? Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn’t determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn’t think he deserves?
Since i read about Alexa and Nolan in "Planning On Forever" i admit that i was excited to read more about them.Yes,after i read that book i was a little dissapointed because i thought that everything happened too fast,but now after reading "Giving you forever" i can say that it was pretty good.
I won't write much because i'm not really sure what to write.
Reading about how Alexa and Nolan were trying to prepare the perfect wedding was interesting,but i guess there had to happen some bad things that could ruin that.I hated those moments because they were really hard and i didn't like that.
Alexa was the same sweet and beautiful girl who fell in love.She was happy and that's what really mattered after all.But what if being happy wasn't enough?What if there was missing something?Between trying to prepare everything for the wedding and school,Alexa is having a hard time dealing with everything without Nolan.
Nolan-sexy ,charming and completely in love with Alexa,does everything he can to be there for Alexa,but between his job and everything else,he has other things on his mind-things that won't let him live without guilt.
But once again Alexa manages to make him see that the present is more important than the past and that he had to forgive himself.
I liked their relationship-how they acted when they were together.It was fun,romantic and sweet,i admit that there were a few moments when everything was a little too intense and too much for my taste.Something common and something that happens in every single book i like.Yikes!
Heck,i have to admit that i kind of fell in love with Nolan.Despite everything he had on his mind,the way he took care of Alexa?That was incredible.And i'm not lying.
Everything-from the way the met in the first book and how they ended up here was good.They were perfect together.And i'm glad that everything turned out to be okay.
Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.
I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book… Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all. But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.
I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days. Yes, three books in three days.
I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head.
I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, Planning on Forever was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I’m still writing.
