Everything in life is temporary. The trials and tribulations don't matter at the end of the day. The most important thing is family and having someone to tell you, "I'll love you forever."

This series holds a very special place in my heart. I read it way back in early 2013 and I fell in love with Gabby and Bradley. I devoured this series and when I saw that a fifth book was in the works, I

Forever is the final book in the This series. It's like the epilogue of Bradley and Gabby's story and the whole story of Joe and Sam. The first half of the book is narrated by the two sisters, but after that the men take over for a while and they narrate some of it. It was pleasant for two reasons. A) We see some of Bradley's points of view which I don't think that needs any explaining as to why is good and B) It was easier to accept what Joe was thinking and why he was acting like he did.

I am left speechless. I really don't know what to say about this book. We all know I am not the mushy love story gal. Not at all. But this book really had me hooked.

Let me back up. This isn't really a mushy book. There are mushy parts. There may be a couple parts where you might want to gag yourself with a spoon, but they help make the book.

This book goes back and forth between Bradley and Gabby's story and Joe and Sam's story. It was the perfect blend of angst and love to keep me reading until

Forever is written in 4 different point of views. There is no violence but some great sexual scenes. The writing just speaks to you and its amazingly written.

Forever bring to play Sam a doctor dating Ryan. Along with Gabby, Bradley, Gabe, and Joe. They all try to figure out the obstacle of life with curve balls thrown in.

Sam is Gabby's sister. They grew up in a dysfunctional house hold, at least till there mother decided enough was enough. No

This story is about two sisters Samantha and Gabby. Samantha is the eldest and the one becoming a doctor. Gabby is married now to the wealthy Bradley Banks and she is in college. Both girls came from a tough background. You see their father was a drunk who had hit rock bottom to the point where he had struck Gabby.
Being the good mother she was when she walked in coming from the grocery store to see her husband striking Gabby she took the girls and left him never to return. When their mom dies

Forever is the conclusion to the This series by JB McGee. It can be read as a standalone but why miss out on the other amazing books in This series?!

To say that I was excited for more of This series would be an understatement. This series started my love of reading on my kindle and I fell in love with Bradley and Gabby 3 years ago in Broken and I loved them both just as much in Forever!

Also, in Forever, we finally get the rest of Gabby's sister, Sam's, story. Sam loves her boyfriend, Ryan, and

It's been so long since I have read Gabby and Bradley's story that I wasn't sure wether I would remember anything that happened in the previous books. I have to say though I felt like it just picked up where we left off the last time.

I have loved this series and this instalment was no different. There were a few times I was completely peeved at the way the story was going but other than that I loved it.

Sam really annoyed me at times, I felt she was being completely selfish and I wanted t

I enjoyed the closure this book put on the series. Overall, I'm certain I would have enjoyed it considerably more had it not been 2.5 years since the 3rd book. That amount of time is simply too long. I don't remember the details of the rest of the series this far out. I'd reread, but too many books on my TBR list, and too little time. Not sure why there was such a lag, but very disappointing for readers.

Forever is the long-awaited continuation of J.B. McGee's fantastic and emotional This series. I have been waiting so long with great anticipation for this spectacular series finale and J.B. having finally shared it with us definitely did not disappoint. Although it has been quite a while since I last spent time with these characters, I was very quickly immersed back into their lives as the memories of their stories quickly flooded back into my mind and into my heart.

Forever is truly one of the best endings to a series I've ever had the pleasure to read. Although it's been quite a bit of time since we last heard from the This crew, I very happily fell right back in step with all of them, particularly Gabby and Bradley and it felt as if no time had passed.

You can tell right off the bat that JB McGee missed these characters as well. Her love for this family is evident throughout and she has remained true to each and every one of them as well. What I found so

Bradley and Gabby are celebrating their first Christmas as husband and wife and have decided to invite both of their families and friends, along with their families, over for Christmas. Sam and Ryan have been dating for a while but Joe and Sam find themselves drawn to each other. Sam thinks Ryan is the safe choice and Joe does everything he can to try and convince her that he is the right one for her. We get glimpses at all four of them during this book and it was interesting to see how they eac ...more

“He doesn’t release my hand. The touch is like ice on a burn. The nerves explode in a symphony of confused melodies and harmonies that contradict each other. It’s excruciating, yet invigorating. It feels like medicine, but it’s poison.”

5 forever stars!! I loved the conclusion to this series!! I’m sad it’s over but it was finished beautifully!

I don’t want to ruin this story for anyone, so my review will be short and sweet!! I have missed these characters so much, so it was so nice to finally read

It took us a while to get to Forever, but it was worth it!

I wouldn't be exaggerating when I say that I have been waiting, and waiting for the conclusion to This amazing series; but as the saying goes, all good things are so worth the wait, and This was no exception. It was really quite brilliant to put everyone's story into one great read. There was drama and angst in abundance, and family dysfunction galore, and boy was it fun! Seeing how Bradley and Gabbie's married life evolved was so preciou

While I enjoyed this entire series, and I still find Bradley, and now Joe both enjoyable and delicious. I was some what disappointed that we did not get more of Ian and Veronica's story. I know that they were not always the most likeable of characters, but after everything they went through I wanted to know more about their story as well. That is my only complaint, I realise instead of writing three more books, the author decided to put everything into one last book, but we were short changed on ...more

Well I read it as a stand alone and must say I was surprised with how many characters we get to have in the series, I am going to consider reading the rest. I enjoyed it quite a bit, first part of the book thought it dragged a little, but the second half flow. This is my first book by JB McGee but certainly won't be the last. If you have read the series I think you will find it as a great finale, you get to read about other characters and have a closure you might wanted for a while.

Unbelievably, undeniably,absolutely phenomenal!!!! It took a long time for this series finale to come out but IT IS SO WORTH THE WAIT!!! The continuation and ending to Gabby and Bradley's story could not have been anymore perfect. And then add in Sam's story coming full circle... Joe is one hot BB you won't soon forget. This is one of THE BEST conclusions EVER!!! ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this finale to a series I loved. It is written from multiple POV but this is done particularly well. It had been so long since I had read these books that I went back and read the whole series and loved it all over again. JB McGee, you certainly know how to write a wonderful love story and I for one am glad you have found your writing mojo!!

For a series I haven't read the other three books of I fell in love with the characters and know I have to go back and read the other books. This story was outstanding and grabbed my from the beginning to the end. Although there where times I was mad at the characters I understood in the end why they had to happen the way they did. Outstanding read by a wonderful writer

Thank you so much for giving us this final piece to this story. It was worth the wait for me. It doesn't matter how long it takes for you to share your character's stories because as long as you write and publish them, I will be waiting in the wings to read them.

Love this series. This final book was more about how the family is growing in ways no one saw coming. Not just Gabby and Bradley's life together but hoe Sam is changing and seeing what she wants and needs. Drama love and pain happens but still a happy ending.
