You and I, Forever is the final installment of the You and I Series. If I could choose one book from this series I loved the most, it would be You and I, Forever. There is love, anger, jealousy, sadness and sex. Everything we generally look for in a book. I fell in love with Bentley even more than I thought possible. Finally, we get to see ALL of Bentley, which includes the secrets he always held so closely. Anna has been through so much in her life and now with Bentley, it’s a whole new roller ...more

Bentley and Anna are reconciled. They realize their love is a once in a life time thing. Anna knows Bentley will be there for her no matter what. It's a good thing too 'cause it's about to get intense. Everything is changing. It seems like once Anna deals with a hot situation, they keep coming. She will learn just how strong she is, and more importantly, she'll find out just how strong the bond between her and Bentley is.
Bentley's life is changing too. He's got so much business he's dealing wi

Wow, I don't know how to even start, but I have to say that this was such a beautifully written series. You and I Forever, the conclusion to the series was just marvelous and I'm sadden that we will not have more of Bentley and Anna, but I"m so happy that it finished with such a bang!

Bentley and Anna go through so much in this whole series, so many ups and downs and mistrust involved, but in this last book we had quite some tearfu

I was so excited and so looking forward to You and I Forever! I was dying to know what else would be in store for Bentley and Anna and Melissa did not disappoint! This has to be one of my absolute favorite series! I loved everything Melissa had to offer, the characters are amazing, the chemistry is hot, and it had the perfect mix of drama and angst!

Solid Series

I really enjoyed this series. Typical rich man/struggling college student. An ex pro soccer player turned successful business owner and an dancer who was unable to fulfill her dream as a professional dancer due to an injury. She's now dancing in a underground gentlemen's club to make ends meet while in college. Both have issues with loss and relationships, but come together in pursuit of their "happily ever after." I gave it a 4 for minimal drama and rushed or skipped over sex scenes

Melissa Toppen did an AMAZING job with Bentley and Anna's happy ever after. You will get so wrapped up in their story that you feel like you are apart of it. It takes your heart and emotions on one hell of a ride. So make sure that you pick up You and I Alone and see how Bentley and Anna's story starts. Bentley Reed will always hold a special place in my ♥. 10 star read all 3 in the series... Don't miss out on the series that all your book friends will be talking about.

I can't even put into words how much I loved this series! I laughed... and in this installment, Melissa managed to make me cry at 3am. (It's ok, It was needed) It was beautifully written, the perfect ending to a story full of emotional highs and lows. This couple makes you want to believe in fairytales. Ugh! I'm just so sad that it's over! I can't wait to see what else Melissa has up her sleeves. She has truly made me a fan for life.

What an amazing ending to an amazing story. This was probably my favorite one of the 3. What an emotional roller coaster Anna went on. If it wasn't for Bentley I don't know if she would have gotten through it. This book made me laugh and made me cry. I am thankful for having the opportunity to read this book. Thanks Melissa!

The final part of Anna and bentley's book, with a few ups and downs. Anna has really had it all through her life..... Highly recommend this series. Can't wait to read more of Melissa Toppen.

You And I Forever
By: Author Melissa Toppen

Bentley and Anna

I have found this series to be amazing, breath-taking and beautiful! Bentley and Anna's relationship is raw and real. Their life together isn't perfect, it is messy full of pain, sadness, joy and happiness This book is not a fairytale but a insightful tale of how the real world can be in all it's painful glory. This is not just a story but a beautiful message that the reader can decipher for themselves. Life doesn't give us a normal lov

This is the final book in the series that we get to see what happens with Anna and Bentley. I love this book it was more about how their lives come together as a couple. Regardless of the obstacles they’ve had to face together they seem to get through it together finally. I loved Bentley even more this time around because he never gave up on Anna if she had her d

The conclusion to this great love story and series. I'm always excited and sad to read the ending of a series. I been waiting for this but bummed it's over. Will these two get their much deserved HEA? Or will tragedy strike destroying any progress they have made. Can Bentley be the strong selfless man Anna needs? These two characters have had there fair share of heartache and finally opened their hearts to each other. But old habits are hard to break. This part of the series is very emotional so ...more

Well if you have been along for the ride with these two you know what I mean when I say ..I literally died a few times I hate to see their story come to an end but I am super happy that there is Lo's story coming! Melissa writes with so much emotion it rips you away from the real world and you completely sink into the sea of her imagination!

This was an awesome ending or should I say beginning of Bentley and Anna's story. It definitely brought out my emotions. I said cried, happy cried, and found myself holding my breath at one point. I can't wait to read Lo's story.

Anna amazes me with the growth she goes through from the first book to this one. She is still an awesome person I would love to have as a friend. It's not often I find a leading lady who I truly love but Melissa has managed to accomplish that.

I loved this final installment of the series.
The story is amazing and beautiful.

I loved delving back into the world of Anna and Bentley, and was took on an emotional roller-coaster throughout the story, hell the entire series!

It is written to perfection, with so much passion and emotion that I was brought to tears several times.
I was pulled into the story straight from the beginning and didn't emerge until the very end, and was left with a huge

Anna and Bentley are amazing couple nobody is perfect but love would grow stronger even if you don't know it yet about your feelings. She lost love ones but gain new people to love as a family but will always think of her biological family and none biological. Sad this is the end of there series but can't wait for Lo story and hear more about Anna and Bentley.

G. Kelly Jonhson. Totally in love with this series! Could and will read again and again!

Melissa, thank you so much for this series! This is a story that makes you feel so much. It gives you the feelings of real life, unconventional love that feels so real, so raw. I would and have already recommend this series to my daughter and our friends. I hope you take the time to fall in love with these beautiful characters as I have.
A wonderfully well worth journey

Review contains a spoiler..... I could not put it down, literally read it in one sitting, until 3 am. A little heart ache and alot of love and a HEA. The only thing that I feel is missing is the ending cuts us off before the story is finished. What about the baby?! I would have loved for the birth to have been included or even an epilogue with a 6 month to 1 year update. I will continue on to the spin off with Lo's story and see where that leads... Overall great read.

I loved this story so much more. Alex had found out that Patty had a brain tumor and only have weeks to live and Bentley had made her life more comfortable until the end. Bentley had taken Alex to Hawaii after Patty had passed and they ended up getting married!! Alex ended up getting into an accident when she was kidnapped and when she woke from the hospital she had found out she is pregnant.. Alex has had alot of ups and downs and deserves some true happiness

I totally loved the whole series but this book brought me to tears! Bentley and Anna have a wonderful story full of all the ups and downs. I totally felt all of their pain and happiness throughout! I was saddened when it all came to an end but like all other good books. They must come to an end. I truly hope we see a bit more of their future in Taming Lo :). Well done Melissa :)

Loved this series. It's the first series I have read by Ms. Toppen, and I really enjoyed her writing techniques. The series had me bound from the very first chapter of book one, and stayed with me until I finished. The characters were very developed and realistic. I read all three books, plus the bonus book at the end of book 3 in about 3 days. Highly recommend this book!!!!

Omg get your tissues ready you are going to need them for this one. I want my very own Bentley Reed. Where can I find one. This man is incredible and what he does for Anna is just simply amazing. Every girl deserves a Bentley in her life!

Thank you Melissa for bringing Bentley into mine.
