In Biton Savakis' opinion, following the advice of Cavan's therapist isn't working. Refraining from dominant play with an abused submissive trying to heal is one thing. Biton is willing to forgo that part of his life. However, not talking to Cavan about making their arrangement permanent doesn't make sense. Three months after his new master promises him forever, Cavan is a...more

I really liked how Biton and Cavan's story evolved throughout the two books in this series. I admit, and strictly for my own selfish reasons, that I hated for their story to come to an end. I can only hope that Ms. Kersten takes pity on us all, and continues this series. I know it would be very interesting to see how much they would have grown a year or so later.

Recommended to Daisiemae by: I loved the previous book 30 days
This is the continued story of Cavan and Biton. It starts about four months after the last story thirty days ends. I loved it! I honestly believe that to fully grasp the relationship between Biton and Cavan you should read the first book...Thirty Days, first.

Cavan has been in therapy for four months. Although he continues to have nightmares of his abuse, he has never felt more secure, safe and loved before. Cavan is anxious about the upcoming trial and continues to have worries about Biton's int...more

Shayla Kersten won my heart with "Thirty Days" and "Forever".
I liked the first one and I LOVED the sequel.
I'm a fan.
I began "A Helping Hand" and yes we can say I'm addicted...lol

Better than the fist. Cavan's grown and has become slightly more independent and Biton loves him even more. There is some BDSM in this in terms of dungeon play but it never gets to be too much. Cavan's awakening sexuality with this lifestyle is written well - and you are happy when he is happy. I loved loved loved the climax of the story - it was so utterly fitting and my neighbors probably thought something was going on in my room because I was like "YES YES YES!"...ROFL!

A well-fitted conclusion to "Thirty Days" and (thank goodness) a HEA for Bison and Cavan.

I got upset with the psychiatrist's narrow opinion, and I was so glad that Cavan (eventually) dumped her. It was good too that Bison became more determined to keep Cavan - although it really shouldn't have taken that long to open up and share everything.

Still a good story.

I have one query - why couldn't these two books have been (slightly) edited to be only one? "Forever" is a natural conclusion to "Thirty D...more

I love the story of Cavan and Biton. Now, four months later, we see how far Cavan has come, becoming more independent every day and facing his past. It was frustrating to watch Biton basically just go along with everything the therapist suggested, and I wanted to smack her for the way she was playing Cavan against Biton. As with the first book, there were parts of this story that felt rushed and could have used a bit more detail and, perhaps, an epilogue showing how they were doing some time dow...more

This is a wonderful story/series & I really can't add anything to my review for Thirty Days (here) highly recommended read.
Lily
I really enjoyed this sequel to Thirty Days. Cavan continues to try to deal with his very painful past with Biton's help. Unfortunately they also have to deal with a misguided therapist, legal issues and the bad guy from hell. Sexy, sweet, angsty and emotional all in all this was a very nice story.

Well, I have to honest..I skipped pages from this story as it was to sad for me.
So, for what I managed to read..(the happy parts)it was lovely. The Master Biton was very caring, protective of his Sub Cavan. They were a very lovely couple.
Lexi Ander
I not disappointed in this sequel. Cavan flourished and found his strength. He even got to....well, I wouldn't want to spoil it for you. Both books in this series is re-readers.

Other than the fact that I don't think the psychiatrist would have gotten to be such a leader in the field with her tactics, I really connected with the story.

Oh, this one is significantly better than book one. As far as I’m concerned they shouldn’t actually be broken up, since the first can’t really stand on its own.

Anyway! The magical therapist turned into a raging bitch. Nice. Except I’m sad that Cavan has to go through this on top of everything else.
The thing is, while I might agree with the doc on some things, she is being manipulative and a bully towards someone who has been abused horribly, so she gets no pass. Rooting for Biton may start now....more

After the arrest of Cavan’s former Master and their initial thirty days contract ended, Biton and Cavan are still together and trying to find out if they can have a true D/s relation. Cavan is still working to leave his trauma behind him and Biton is giving him his space. On advice of Cavan’s therapist they don’t have sex and they don’t talk about the therapy. That doesn’t help them to become closer, of course. When Cavan rebels against his therapist, because she tries to convince him to leave B...more

Another strong novella to follow up the terrific Thirty Days.

At the end of Thirty Days Cavan has spoken to the police about his abuse and the possible death of another slave, Mateo, he is terrified of meeting the same end as Mateo and is still totally and understandably having a hard time trusting he won't be left by Biton, his new Master and lover. No matter that Biton has assured Cavan there is no need for a Master/slave contract anymore, that he loves him, Cavan is fearful of what may happen....more

Overall
An enjoyable story that continues the romance between Cavan and Biton as Cavan progresses from quivering slave to gentle submissive and Biton struggles to do what's best for his new lover. While a perfectly good story, it did nothing to amaze me into a higher score.

Overall Story. Although I question why the Big Bad waited to strike until now, overall the plot was good. It could come across as slightly cheesy, but it wasn't enough to make me put the book down, mostly because the c...more

Forever is the sequel of Thirty Days, a story I have loved very much and maybe one of the first D/S story I have read. Cavan is an abused child sold like sex slave to an evil Master who, after beating him nearly to death, has abandoned him. But Cavan, even if he is free now, is not able to live a normal life, and Biton, an older man who has lost his former lover, takes pity on him and offers him an home and a Thirty Days D/S contract. This is more or less the previous story and now months are pa...more

Cavan is making progress by becoming a bit more self sufficient. This is despite Dr. Merten, Cavan's therapist, sessions. *Full disclosure - I avoid therapist because I've never had a good experience with them. The few times I've encountered ones, they projected their issues onto me.* I can say I completely loathed Dr. Merten and I hope she drops dead. People like her should be barred from helping others. She's financially raping people. She charges them to be even more fucked up. *steps down fr...more

Better than the first but still too short to realy get their relationship set in my mind. I gave this one 4 stars because I was so happy for Cavan finally getting to feel the other end of the whip. Made me smile and cheer. Love the hell out of him. Still not feeling Biton tho.

This is the continuation. Cavan’s old master has been arrested for murder but may get off with a slap on the wrist. Cavan is still going to therapy but the therapist is not helping him. Eventually the ring leader who’s been taking these kids and making them slaves kidnaps Cavan and shoots Bitek and the mystery continues as they try to rescue him and another slave before he is murdered. I HATED the therapist (but so did Cavan) and couldn’t believe she would play her own agenda so much but I suppo...more

3.5 stars.

I liked it a bit better than the first story, because I really like Cavan and I was glad to see him fight for getting better, to be indipendent and to get rid of the hurt of his past. I liked it so much that I think the story should have been longer and spent more time on Cavan's needs and struggles, I got only bits of his growing up from a slave to a whole person and I think this was a bit overshadowed by sex. As in the first book I couldn't connect with Biton, even if I liked his ten...more

Again I really enjoyed the story but again it was way too short. Would have been nice to see them like a year later on how they were doing, etc.

Creo que me he vuelto fan de la autora, me gusta como escribe, aunque no es perfecta :)
Raevyn
It was nice to visit these two great characters again. Biton tried so hard to do what is right for Cavan that there were times I wanted to yell at him because I felt that Cavan was left hanging. The therapist was the wrong person to be helping him because she was adding stress and hurt to Cavan. So many of the issues could have been solved with more communication on Biton's end.

What I liked best was the true caring I felt between them. What I didn't like was the end. I wanted more and to know th...more

Thirty Days and Forever (Thirty Days, Book 2) are good kinky m/m romances about a Dom whose beloved partner/sub died from cancer. As he starts to get back into the scene, his friends introduce him to a sub who had been badly abused and tortured (almost to death) by his previous master. These were hard for me to read at times because the kept reminding me of a friend, although I don't think things got quite that bad for him before he got out...
Holly
Loved the first one and the second one makes me want even more!
Forever is the second book in Shayla Kersten's series From Thirty Days to Forever. I really think that though short it really captured Biton and Cavan’s relationship. And though I really didn't like the therapist and was really glad to see her go in the end, I really loved the book and would love to read more.

Danny Tyran
Although this short story is classified as a gay BDSM romance, it is much more a psychological thriller than anything else. Even if I wanted a gay BDSM novel when I bought the first part of this story (Thirty Days), I still wanted to read more, to know what happenned to the two main characters and that bastard Wainwright. This is a nice follow-up of Thirty Days.
Vivian ♪(┌・。・)┌
After pleasantly surprising me with Thirty Days, I immediately jumped to Forever. Ms Kersten has produced a wonderful series with smooth captivating writing and a wonderful romance.

I'm glad these characters got their 'forever'.
Kirsty~Vhixen
So happy to see the Cavan and Biton got their HEA. and that they fired that bitch of a doctor! it was clear she really didn't have Cavan's best interests at heart.

they only complain i have about this book is that it was way too short. i would of loved to see more of Antonio and Lia's relationship too.
