A very interesting start to a serial that I think I'm going to really like. It's nice reading a story about characters that don't fall in love the minute they see each other. I really like John. I like his determination, character, and strength. What really made this story stand out for me was how it dealt with John's depression. I like how it was treated a serious illness, not some cute quirk, or a personality flaw, but the disease it is. I love how supportive his family, and friend Henry are. ...more

This was a mildly interesting start of a m/m romance. It merely sets up the rest of the story. Apparently part two is only a couple chapters. I do not relish paying for a story a chunk at a time so I will not be reading further.
In this introduction, the main character is lonely and suffers from depression. He does not date or do much of anything except meet with his therapist, have dinner with his family, work, and hang out occasionally with his friend. Then he meets the grandson of a neighbor w

This review will be for all stories in this series although I may refer to something from each individual one. All of them make one whole.

John is a gay man who happens to suffer from clinical depression. Do not link one with the other. The treatment of his disease feels real as it has no easy or quick fix. It is a real disease that he must deal with for the entirety of his life. The problem is he is letting his fear of a recurring episode rule his life. He lives in Texas, not a friendly place f

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This short story is the first part of what probably promises a long series of installments. In this first one we get to meet John, a young man with a history of depression. His life prior is decision to change it was a long string of hook ups that left him dry and buried even deeper in his illness. In his attempt to change it though an get his life back on track and control John closes himself in a comfort zone

This was just...I don't know...painful to read. It felt entirely too juvenile (even for NA-ish characters) and seemed to ramble on with no direction. So much detail about preparing to camp, and then nothing about the actual camping. Details about getting dinner, being upset at an interruption, then passing that off as inconsequential when someone needs to talk to them...someone who is ridiculously immature and not all personable. If that's the MC's love interest, then I have absolutely no intent ...more

As a complete fan of Bailey's work, when this first came out, I couldn't wait to grab my copy of it!!

Yes, the story is short, but it is a great start to a mini-series and I personally cannot wait for more. She gave you enough to keep you interested, without giving away too much of the future story line. I can't wait for the next in the series to come out so we can keep learning more about John and see the way his life is going to be changed.

Even though I was able to get this book while it was st

Yes, forever, is a serial! I am so not a fan of this kind of series.
Yes, Forever wasn’t what I was expecting. An interesting short story that I couldn’t really get into.

John has been working to get himself together and to handle his depression without making poor choices. But other than his friendship with one friend and his family he really has no social life. An encounter with a new neighbor leaves him a bit rattled. I can't wait to see where this story goes next. ...more
This was a good start to a book, but I am glad it was free. Not sure I like these serials - 1 chapter at a time. Depends on how long and how much whether I continue or not.

I really enjoyed this short story, but it's more like a few chapters....I just finished all 5 of these shorts and it's pretty much one continuous story.
well, that was an unsatisfying tease. Part one for sure, and I'm glad I didn't pay for it. I didn't like Benji at all and am not interested in reading more. ...more

Not real sure how to rate this, it was just okay.
FREE at Pride Publishing, the 'part one' makes me nervous of this being one book separated into 5 parts. ...more

A few things about me...

I am a married mom of four who spends most of the day writing, either on stories or at the blog. I love to write as much as I love to read. I am generally quiet and laid back, choosing to let things slide off me rather than stick and irritate me.

And it's really hard trying to think of descriptives for myself, so I'll just let y'all e-mail me or comment at the blog if there'
