I've been living in a blissful bubble for nearly a year now. Everything with Rae is perfect, and I feel like we're on the fast track to forever.

Then I go and do something stupid and suddenly we're speeding toward Splitsville. Well, to be fair, I've been doing something stupid. I just haven't had the balls to tell her about it.

It could break us. Or make us stronger. I

Rate: 4 / 5 stars

Here's To Forever is the continuation to Hudson and Rae's story, and obviously cannot be read as a standalone. You have to read Here's To Tomorrow before and if you don't any spoilers at all, you should also read Here's To Yesterday before this one too.

In this novella, Hudson and Rae's blissful relationship is tested. Rae finds out Hudson has been lying to her for a year and when she learns why it becomes even more of a problem.

Even the most perfect couples have fights, have
Tldr: better emotional depth but I full on don't like the hero after this book and thus the romance didn't really work. The reunion felt rushed and unrealistic
I went to this one straight after the first book in the series because it felt weird to read two other couple's stories knowing Hudson and Rae's wasn't finished yet. First, holy hell I missed so much I'm almost scared to go back and read the second book. Second, though the author did a better job of writing emotional depth in this novella

This is a top 5 Forever stars!
Here's to Forever is a Novella about the continuation of Rae and Hudson's story. You absolutely need to read Here's to Yesterday first.
Nothing can always be perfect, even for the best ones.
I've loved Teagan's writing right from the start and this one does not disapoint.
I absolutely loved this Novella.

They've laid the foundation. Can they survive the test? Here's to Forever is a continuation of Hudson and Rae's story. It is not a stand alone. Here's to Tomorrow has to be read first. Just when life seems to be going great, there's a bump in the road. Will love conquer all? It's nice to catch up with two of my favorite characters. Hunter continues to enamor.

I think Rae blow everything out of proportions and this long novella was uncalled for. Honestly, I thought it was going to be a short sweet extra to their love story.. No, Rae through a major fit about Hudson talking to her dad after he kept parts of her past from her...honestly ridiculous.

Now I'm on to Gaige's book and I really hope its worth the read...

If you haven't read Here's To Tomorrow (#1 in the Here's To series) yet, but really want to in the near future, do not read any further. This novella (#1.5 in the Here's To series) is the companion novella to book #1. This review may cotain spoilers so please read Here's To Tomorrow first!

You must read Here's to tomorrow first. This is a little follow up to what happened after that one ended and where they are at now.
There is a bit more detail in Here's to Yesterday to a few of the scenes at the end.
I really enjoyed this and loved getting more of Hudson and Rae. I love the connection they have. I love their sarcasm and banter. Even when things may seem like they are on a downward spiral both of those things shine through.

Finally the HEA I was looking for AND resolution of Rae's issues with Dad.

This entire novella is about a huge break in their relationship due to a trust issue. This was great and I haven't really seen this type of thing in a romance before so it was definitely original.

Rae is stubborn to her detriment and Hudson is so in love with her that I really felt for him. Great wrap up to their story.
**ARC Kindly provided for an honest review.**

Fans of Hudson & Rae will adore this novella. What happens to them after they've found their HEA? Do things stay the same or is there trouble in paradise? Buy this novella to find out. You won't regret it. Besides you'll get to spend a couple more hours with Hudson, so that's a major bonus in my book.

Full review to come once released.

This is a novella, continuing Hudson and Rae's story. It's a bumpy one, but definitely worth the read. All of Hunter's characters are so lifelike and shoved into real life situations that are tough to maneuver through. You bond with this couple. You want to yell at them and then you want to bear hug them. Another great read by this author. I cannot wait for more. ...more

Here’s to Forever is such a cute novella. I usually don’t like novella’s, but I couldn’t pass up a chance to read more about Hudson and Rae. I was surprised by this short story. While it was a quick read, it was not a light one. I was elated to see that the author was actually able to make this short story seem more like a full-length novel, conflict and all.
Now let me just say that this novella also made my heart ache for more than one reason. This one really hit me in the soft spot and had me

More of Hudson and Rae!

Hudson and Rae have managed to overcome past secrets, doubts and guilty consciences to have their love grow into something Hudson never thought he could have. Not only is Rae is soul mate, but she’s become the best mother and friend to his daughter. The only thing left to do is for Hudson to make it official & legally tie his family together forever. But there’s one problem - he has been hiding a secret from Rae, and when she finds out, he’s terrified she will leave him.

Kind of regret reading this

I'm torn about how to reviee this, because the writing is good -- as always with Teagan's books -- but I'm so mad about Rae's actions that I didn't enjoy the book.

I absolutely loved Hudson and Rae in the first book. I jumped right on this book expecting to love the continuation of their story...but I kind of regret it now that I read it.

Rae's behavior completely irritated me in this book. She reacts childishly to the situation and shuts out everyone, especially being h

A wonderful follow up novella for Rae and Hudson. Even though I had faith in their happily ever after, I wasn't surprised that there might be a few bumps along the way.

Hudson has been keeping a secret from Rae and to her trust is everything. Suddenly their rock solid relationship is on shaky ground and the future Hudson had been planning is uncertain.

One thing I enjoy about Teagan Hunter's writing is the relationships she builds amongst her characters. She does a great job of creating amazing an

Here’s to Forever by Teagan Hunter
“A catch up, 4 stars”

If your reading Here’s to Forever then you’ve read the first book at least in the series and possibly the second. Here’s to Forever is basically a catch up on what’s been going on. You get a little bit of Tucker and Maura but its really about Hudson and Rae. See Hudson kind of stuck his foot in his mouth, will he be able to get it out or will it ruin his relationship with Rae.

5 Stars!

Secrets....they never ever start secret.

And we are back with more of the unforgettable Rae and Hudson as they find love is complicated, not all the easy but man is it so worth it. Teagan shakes these two up a bit and gives us a stunner that I couldn't put down cover to cover.

I'm so glad this story continued and we got glimpses after the happy ending. It made them more real...more everything.

Can't wait for the next!

I highly recommend this book.

The love story of Hudson and Rae that started in Here’s To Tomorrow continues. As in most relationships there are obstacles that a couple must face that will either bring them closer or tear them apart and the same is true for Hudson and Rae.

Hudson has been keeping a secret from Rae for a year believing it is in her best interest but when she finds out their relationship is tested but Hudson is the man for the job. Full of drama and heat this novella will have you cheering for their happy every

This book continues on from book one following the lives of Rae and Hudson.

Man this book had my heart in a tight grip nearly all the way through. I needed Hudson and Rae to be ok and i sighed a huge sigh of relief at the end. This book spoke volumes to me because it showed what real love and what a real relationship is like. You really see the connection both of them have, you see them fight for their love and it has you connecting with them on an even deeper level then in the first book.

Everything seems to be going perfect for Rae and Hudson. She feels something deep in her gut that something is wrong. Hudson finally comes clean on what he’s hiding.

Can the trust he broke be rebuilt or is the damage too much?

I was so glad to get more of Rae, joey and Hudson. Once again I couldn’t put the book down once i started.

Heres to Rae and Hudson!

People should take more time to explore and manage their own feelings and understand the affects of those feelings and how it bleeds over into other relationship developement. This story is one where only one half of the couple proceeds in "the best interest" and it burns him in the ass. Can they get back to where they were? Read these books, and learn more about this tight group of friends.

Ugh. I really didn't want Rae and Hudson's story to end but it was a hell of a ride. The ending to this couple was emotional and exciting. I'm so glad they both got their happy ending despite all the trials and tribulations in their way. I still love Joey as she is my favorite in this story but man, Hudson and Rae are one of my favorite book couples. ...more

❤️ Hudson and Rae!

This was another great Hudson and Rae story. Hudson, even with his faults is still swoon worthy adorable. I was a little disappointed with Rae in this book because I felt her immaturity in several ways really showed through. In the end, it all came full circle though. I loved the epilogue and can’t wait for more books in this series.

Here's to Forever by Teagan Hunter is a novella in her Here's To Series and tells the story of Rae and Hudson´s HEA.

Hudson and Rae are insanely happy. But Hudson wants more, he wants her for forever.
But they´re already through so much and he hesitates and fears she could say no.

Here's to Forever is a sweet story, well written and the perfect conclusion to Rae and Hudson´s lovestory.
