All I want is my happily-ever-after.

That's all I've wanted since meeting Noah Miller.

From the day we met, the world has tried to keep Noah and me from being together, but now that I'm carrying his child, no one will be able to tear us apart. Or so I hope. But Noah and I have made some mistakes along the way, and the consequences are impacting the people we love. Worse, the

To hell with the rules. I was finished with them all.

3.5 stars. And so it ends.

You see that line above? That's the section where my thoughts should go, but I'd have to include major spoilers if I wanted to tell you what I really thought about the biggest points of the story. Instead, I'll be sterile and vague. That always makes for an entertaining review, right? O.o

I received an ARC through NetGalley.

I loved the previous two books, but Forever just did not work for me. On its own, the story wasn’t that interesting to me, since I’m not into pregnancy stories. As a series finale, it was also disappointing. I was nervous going into it because of Rose’s pregnancy, but I was interested in how it would effect her relationship with Noah, as well as what it would mean for his relationship with his community. I figured one of the main tensions would be whether they

It was my daughter that introduced me to this series by reading out the blurb of book one to me from her Netgalley account. I admit to being skeptical to begin with, I mean I'm in my 70's why would I enjoy a "teen" book or Young Adult as my grandaughter Rachel of Rai29BookReadNReview tells me is the correct terminology these days. Anyhow to get to the point, I didn't expect to really enjoy reading book one, but I was pleasantly surprised. Then every time the next book was available my daughter r ...more

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.

WOW! What can I say? Just fantastic fiction!
Well I'd been impatiently waiting for this one since finishing Belonging Bk#2 in the Tempatation Series, so you could say I had high expectations, and I had my own ideas how things may work out for Noah & Rose.

I downloaded an e-copy of this one from Netgalley, as soon as I was accepted to receive the title. (Thank you sooo much Netgalley). o say I'd been looking forward to it really is an understatement! Then I was invited by K

We were still being kept apart. Would it ever end? Was a time of peace and acceptance in or lives possible?

When I first came across the Temptation series, I was immediately intrigued. I love romances that involve forbidden love. And Rose and Noah had everything against them right from the start. Coming from two completely different worlds, they prove that their love is very much worth fighting for. There were so many times when it seemed like the latest challenge they were facing could have

I really enjoyed the conclusion to this series. It seems that a lot of trilogies fizzle, but this one had a good amount of drama, action, and romance. Things happened in this story--it didn't just wrap things up nicely.

I felt a connection to the characters, especially Noah and Rose, and felt the turmoil they were going through and they tried to compromise and reach a decision, regarding their future. However, I don't feel that it was a completely satisfying compromise. One of them lost everythin

Wow, where do I begin... This is once again the end of an unforgettable and beautiful series that I will cherish reading forever. The story of Noah and Rose is one that I will always remember and keep close to my heart. I am saddened to have to say goodbye to them but happy knowing they finally found the happiness they so rightfully deserved.

I waited patiently for the story of Rose and Noah to come full circle. I waited to read what life would throw at them. The wait is over and my feelings are torn in two directions. When a series ends it's hard on the reader. When an awesome series ends, it's devastating to the reader. This is one of those series where I've followed the author from the beginning to the end.

You know those reading slumps where no matter what book you pick up, nothing grabs your attention? Yeah, I was in one of those, it had been months since I'd read a whole book. When I saw FOREVER on NetGalley, I almost cried, I'd been dying to read this book since I closed the last pages of Belonging. FINALLY I'd found something to give me my reading groove back! ;-)

I'm rating "Forever" a two because it wasn't what I thought it would be. I thought that the pregnancy was cliche and the ending, in my opinion was lacking. It felt rushed and reminded me of the ending of the "Twilight" saga.

I did not like the POVs changing every chapter and the book could have been written in third person.

I felt that Rose was very Mary-Sue because she was willing to get married and have a baby at seventeen. No seventeen-year-old I know would be that foolish. The relationship bet

Lindy's Thoughts:

Different cultures have always fascinated me. After all, variety is the "spice of life." When I had the opportunity to read the first book in the Temptation Series, I was excited to read something completely different from anything that I've ever read before, and get the opportunity to learn more about the Amish. At the same time, I was a bit worried that I might not like this story. When I thought of all the stereotypes of the Amish culture, I wondered whether this story would

Ever since I finished Belonging, you wouldn't believe how disappointed I was when I found out that the release of the last book was in January. Luckily, I was accepted into the blog tour and received an ARC of Forever. Even though I had to wait six months it read it, the wait for Forever was worth it.

The character development in this novel was completely outstanding. Especially with Noah. To be quite honest, I wasn't much a fan of Noah in the first two books, but Hopkins managed to convince me

Thanks to Kismet Book Tours and HarlequinTEEN for sending me a copy of this novel for review!

The conclusion to the Temptation trilogy, is just as heart warming and completely full of drama as the previous books! With a happily-ever-after and moment where you cry and gasp in shock and awe, this is the perfect finale to this intriguing romance trilogy.

WHAT I LIKED: I've said before that this series is not for everyone. The romance is riddled with plenty of drama and adolescent relationship games, and some readers will tire of that quickly. But I absolutely adored Temptation and Belonging , and Forever is a must-read for fans of previous books. Overall, Forever is pretty good, but it isn't quite as strong as the first two.

Once again, I love Hopkins' sensitivity to the Amish culture and her handling of t
Michelle Wrona
I've read a few series dealing with the Amish combining with a sweet romance that is forbidden, but this certainly was the best one I've ever read. Karen Ann Hopkins has created a gorgeous trilogy with mystery, squeals, feels, wants, and needs. If you enjoy contemporary reads, this is the perfect read for you that deals with a twist.

Temptation is all that Rose has dealt with since meeting Noah Miller. Their love has been forbidden since they met, but they both have loved each other too much

If you remember from my reviews of Temptation and Belonging, I’ve had some frustrations with this series. My initial frustrations in Temptation centered around Rose’s ignorance concerning the Amish culture and how both Rose and Noah had the desire to change the other into what they wanted. In Belonging these issues were compounded. Because Rose was working to become Amish, her feminist views collided with the Amish way of life. She waits entirely too long and truthfully never fully discusses her ...more

Review Posted on Reading Lark 2/20/14:

Reading the final novel in a series is always bittersweet. On the one hand, I wanted to find out how Rose and Noah's story ended, but on the other hand I didn't want to walk away from these characters. From the first chapter of Temptation, I have been enthralled with the torrid love affair between Rose and Noah. The tension between the two families and the clash of cultures made this romance intensely intriguing. I wa

I have loved Noah and Rose's romance from the beginning, it is intense, first love personified, and the fact that their love has grown stronger through trials, temptations, and being torn apart says even more about it. So, when this book was available for review, I jumped on it, because I just had to know how things end for them, not to mention Sam and Summer, since Sam was introduced as a POV and I've become attached to him.
The multiple POV is easy, and moves the plot along, although I will

When writing my reviews of Temptation and Belonging, I found it difficult to share my thoughts about the books without revealing too much. It is the same with Forever. So this is my warning: This review gets a little spoilery - so read at your own risk.

Forever wasn't what I was expecting, but I was pleasantly surprised with how the series ended! There were definitely moments where I was irritated with quite a few characters, and there were also times when I thought everyone acted monumentally stupid, but given the choices everyone made, I suppose it's to be expected.

So, Rose's pregnancy. We see Noah hoping Rose is pregnant at the end of the 2nd book, and at the beginning of this one, he's hoping she isn't, because of how difficult it will be f

This is the third novel in Karen Ann Hopkin's Temptation series, and I must admit that from the start, this has been a guilty-pleasure series for me. I'm generally the type of reader that wants rough, tough and gruff contemporary fiction, and I have a penchant for quickly discarding what might otherwise be considered sappy romance. However, Forever earned a spot on my review pile, simply because there is something inherently allur

In quick review, Rose is a "regular" English girl that happens to fall for Noah, an Amish boy. They live near one another and begin a relationship that is real and true, but forbidden by the Amish culture because Rose is not Amish. In previous installments, the two have gone back and forth trying to decide how they can be together in the future (as they are both young still) but the overall question has always been Will Rose
Rose and Noah have overcome so much – their cultural differences, their families and now they may have a chance at happily ever after. Except that for these young lovers, the course of true love never did run smoothly. It might seem a little odd that after the low rating I gave the previous book (Belonging) that I have continued on with this series but there is something oddly compelling about Rose and Noah’s story. They may have a selfish and tumultuous relationship with a lot of emotion howeve ...more

Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins is the breathtaking finale in Rose and Noah’s story. This is the third and final book in the Temptation series. If you haven’t read the other books first please check out my review of Temptation and/or Belonging.

This book is told in multiple points of view of Rose, Noah, Sam, and Sarah. I loved being able to get inside of all of their heads and see everything from each side of the story. I am happy that Hopkins added Sarah’s

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. :(
