Forever with Me is the book in Armentrout’s ‘Wait for You’ series I was most anxious to read. This is Nick’s book. The bartender we’ve met in the other books, and Stephanie’s. I love that she put this couple together. Both are known for their no-relationships/only one night stands status, so I was curious to see how their story would turn out. It was so much more emotional than I expected. I cried in this book. Real tears, not just tearing up. It may have been that the subject matter

It’s no secret that I adore most of the books Jennifer L Armentrout’s written. They are seductive, sexy and full of charm. Definite New Adult must reads! It’s just so hard not to fall hard for those stories… But Forever With You turned out to be more than just cute, sweet and sexy. It was, in my opinion, one of the mo

I love Jennifer's books, it's pretty darn obvious. So when I met her in Vegas and received this arc I was on Cloud Fucking 9. I even started reading it on the drive back to LA that night! (but then it got dark so I had to wait). Even better this is Stephanie and Nick's story!!!

So since I read this in July and am just now reviewing in September, I will do my best to do it justice.

Stephanie moved to a new town to start as an assistant at her dream job. One night she hits up the lo

Nick and Steph just became one of my favorite couple from this series. I loved the connection they had, even when they both would have rather they didn't have it. Two commitment-phobes don't seem like they would make a good couple, but for these characters it worked for them. I loved seeing them both fight their attraction after that one night together and it added just the right amount of angst to their story.

As usual this author delivers us an adorable couple with a sweet, but also heartbreak

I am so impressed with Jennifer Armentrout's story-telling abilities. It's flawless. To be honest, in the previous books, Stephanie was not my favorite character, especially the first 2 books, I didn't like her, AT ALL. She had set her sights on the men that were meant for other women that I fell in love with. And then the author paired her up with Nick. Seriously...... I was nervous for this book. So very nervous.

Guess what, I fell hard. I fell hard for this couple. This may just be my favorite

I have to admit I loved this. It's my favorite JLA contemporary for sure. It might have had a few typos or cheesy lines like her books usually do, but I didn't notice because I was too busy swooning over Nick with a super cheesy grin on my face.

The truth is, sometimes I rate books based on book boyfriend quality. I mean, I didn't rate the Kathleen Turner books 5 stars because the plots were believable or because I thought Kathleen was smart. It was KADE. So, if any of my friends rea

Finally, we get Nick's story! I've been dying to find out more about him every since we meet him in Calla's book, Stay With Me. He's hot, quiet and mysterious and I couldn't wait to find out why.

Of course if you read the last book, you know who the heroine is. Yes, all our mouths dropped! I couldn't believe it was Stephanie...Stephanie from Cam's book...and Jase's!! WTH? I wasn't sure how JA could make this work but I was pleasantly surprised.

I was seriously looking forward to reading this one and I wasn't the disappointed. I love how Nick, former playboy found love with Stephanie. She is definitely his match and when they hook up she is strict it is a one time thing. But one time wasn't enough and I loved their connection!

Tell me that you still see a future for us.

I loved this book so much that I've even got it on paperback :) "Forever with You" follows Stephanie and Nick on their epic journey to one night stand lovers to parents... I know, major spoiler, but I can't help it. This book was very different from others, not because it had some action of twisted plot, but because it had a great message behind it. Personally, I loved it so much and considered it atypical for this series.

I must admit I started this book off thinking "hmm What have you got me into Jeanne?!" The insta lust was a huge turn off but gradually the book grew on me and Nick was such a sweetie. Plus I almost shed a tear towards the end. Those storylines always gets to me.

Anyways it's the first book I finished in 3 weeks so that counts for something. One problem I did have was that I was so lost on who was who and what happened with the other couple's stories. So overall was a decent read.

Forever With You is the fifth novel in Jennifer L. Armentrout's Wait for You series and the turn of Nick and Stephanie to have their stories told.

This wasn't my favorite of the series. Nothing wrong with i stated in lost my mojo! So this was kinda just meh!

So quiet honestly, this is a bit hard to review without giving away spoilers so I will be trying a different format. But wow, oh wow.. I don't even know where to begin. I have only read Armentrouts NA books, I have yet to read anything else by her, which is a shame really because I own a couple of her YA novels that are currently glaring at me from the bookcase. She is an amazing author that evokes a long of feelings for me with her writing, even if not all of them are necessarily good. Forever

This was definitely not what I was expecting from this book... as with most other reviews, I'm not going to go into any detail (which ironically I found frustrating while reading the reviews, but I ended up being grateful because I was able to enjoy the book a lot more). This was definitely different than the other novels in the series, mainly because of how casual they were in the beginning. And while I liked that everything felt very realistic in terms of the start of their relatio

Buckle in, the second you pick up Forever with You you are about to embark on an emotional roller coaster to beat all contemporary romance emotional roller coaster. This book was fan-freakin’-tastic! From start to finish you are immersed in Stephanie and Nick…the ups, the downs and the laughter that makes fictional characters people.

Got to say Stephanie hasn’t been a favorite character of mine in the Waiting for You series, until now.

Forever With You was a story that was passionate, sultry, captivating and insanely seductive.  It was perfection in my eyes.  The charm and banter that filled the pages pushed this story to a new level of sexy that I desperately search for each time I open a book.  But you want to know the best part?  When I reached that final page, I was left feeling giddy and smiley despite the fact that I cried, a lot.  I’m still on a book high and Forever With You has officially become my favorite book in th ...more

I have loved every book in this series and this one is no different. The characters are all so real to me and that's the most important part of any book as far as I'm concerned.

Steph gets a bad rap in the first couple of books in this series. Because of that, I was concerned if I was gonna like her. But I loved her. She doesn't do relationships. Love is a thing but she hasn't experienced it. And she's not gonna settle for anything less than what her parents had. In the mean time, she's up for a

I used to love Jennifer Armentrout and every single book she released, but I just realized it took me a really long time to finish this one. A month to be specific, and that happens very rarely.


I love this series, but already with FWM I had a few problems. In this case maybe mu biggest issue was Stephanie and the plot /so basically the whole book).

I love this series. Well-developed characters, fun, sexy, swoony heroes, fantastic romance and a touch of drama. It’s one of my favourite NA series, and this book just cements that. It has everything that I have come to anticipate from this author, but it is also SO much more than I was expecting with intense feels that took me completely by surprise. I laughed, I cried, and I fell in mad love. This is definitely going down as one of my faves of the series.

I just finished Say You Want Me by Corinne Michaels before diving into this one, and if you've read both, you'll know why I'm torn. I feel like I just literally read the same story twice... by two different authors.

I honestly had no idea, as I went in blind with BOTH books! So imagine my surprise when it turned out I was reading the exact same storyline - again! I seriously had a WTF moment where I thought I might be experiencing some pretty epic deja v

I'll be honest, I was hesitant to read this one because I wasn't a huge fan of Stephanie in the previous books. I wasn't entirely convinced either that Jennifer could make me like her, let alone love her, but I was wrong.
In the previous books, Steph always seemed standoffish as far as the other female MCs were concerned, but after reading this one--and loving it, I totally understand WHY.

Nick is a delicious mix of good looks, a great sense of humor and a huge heart. Like, I can't even.

What did Katie said to nick in the FALL WITH ME book? "Shes's coming tonight"

After reading Forever with You I can honestly say that Forever with You is my favorite book in this series. And I'm not just saying that because the main character is named Stephanie. ;) No, this story was simply amazing and really touched me. I even cried, and that's a pretty big deal with books for me.

This book features Stephanie and Nick. If there's any two people who are just meant to be it's these two, in my opinion. In fact, I think they were perfect for one another. It all started with a
