I have a soft spot when it comes to Gaige. I love him so hard. There are days when I begged Teagan for his story, (BEGGED I tell you!) but he was being a stubborn s.o.b. It turns out I'm glad he was so stubborn. His story was worth the wait. He needed time to tell it.

Teagan's writing has grown leaps and bounds. I'm so incredibly proud of her. Not only did we have to wait for Gaige to talk but we had to wait for her to be ready to write him. His story isn't an easy one. Haley's story isn't easy

Gaige Addams is living a life filled with regrets. He's held on to grudges, can't get past deep self loathing, and keeps all of this from his best friends. Not to mention, he can't quite keep from shooting himself in the foot time after time, while carrying all of the heavy baggage. The night he meets Haley is the night his life is shaken up. For the first time, he has something that he does for himself, when he spends his time with her. Their friendship takes off, but it's another secret, so wh ...more

4.5 Stars

I've enjoyed the books in this series, but this one was my favorite.

It follows Gaige, who is struggling to move past mistakes that he's made in the past (and some of them were awful), and Haley, who has had her share of mistakes in the past too.

I loved the way their relationship blossomed over time before it evolved into more. And while they (mainly Gaige) has kept secrets from her, they work through their issues. The evolution of Gaige from his childhood and the maturity that he gain
Tldr: the author has made huge strides in the things that bugged me about previous books, but I didn't like the heroine and the romance seemed forced instead of believable.
I put a pin in this book because although I found Gaige an interestingly enigmatic character across this series, what little I knew of Haley didn't make her an especially appealing heroine. This book was a bit of a mixed bag. On the one hand the author seems to be finally getting the hang of pacing a book with more going on t

Remember when I said this one might be my favorite? I was right! So RIGHT! This was honestly the greatest one yet. Gaige and Haley's story was anything but conventional, it was honestly amazing. The way they came together was so unique, I loved every single bit of it.
And getting to know the real Gaige and all the secrets behind his silence... wow, that man was hiding serious sh*t. Learning about his past and what he'd been through only made me love him more. He still feels gui

Here’s to Now is a very complicated, messy romance.

Gaige aka the quiet one. Was quite a mystery, in the beginning, he didn’t say much throughout the last two books. So you didn’t get to know him. There are so many things that he carries on his shoulders, that he shouldn’t. Haley is kind of like his rock that he never knew he needed. She’s a spitfire, she’s fun, and she loves the crap out of him. But it takes a while for them to confront those feelings for each other. So that leads to a roller co

Haley and Gaige are taking center stage and yeah you can just tell from that tagline up there that this was gonna be a good one...not one single little minute.

The Here's To series is rounding out with its fourth book (third full standalone) in the series, Here's To Now and what a journey this series and more particularly this book was with an amazing cast of very unforgettable characters (hello to repeats and check ins!) and some epic, epic stories.

The enigma of Gaige is finally revealed. He's a complicated hunk of burning love. From self - loathing to heart-aching Haley and Gaige stole an enormous chunk of my heart. There is so much more than a romance at stake when you let Ms. Hunter into your heart, her characters walk away with pieces of your soul. Throughout the series Gaige seemed to be the guy that has his act together, but looks can be deceiving. He's the man still struggling to figure himself out. Haley brings sunshine to drown ou ...more

Here's to Now is book three in the Here's To series. It can be read as a standalone but if you read the previous ones then you will already know the characters. This one is Gaige and Haley's story. I loved Gaige. He's not prefect, he has a not so great past. He's worked hard to get where he is. He has his secrets. Haley is the prefect curve ball that Gaige never saw coming. Before this book I loved Giage but really didn't have an opinion on Haley, by the end of this story I really liked her. I l ...more

Out of all the books in the series, this one was the best.

It's told in Gaige's POV only and the reader sees that he has really struggled his whole life. I feel for the guy and all he is trying to over come to be with his siblings. The book is broken up into three parts (part one is the best) and this is how Gaige reveals his secrets Haley.

Overall, I'm not sure I would read books from this author again.. The female characters were weak and whiny. The guys a little better but still not enough

"I don't leave my self-respect at the door to get in a girl's underwear. I bring it with me to get into her heart."

Yes. So much yes.

While all 3 books in this series are stand-alone books, they are about the same group of friends so we've gotten to know Gaige a little bit already. I say a little bit, because while reading this one we realize that he has so much more going on that we could imagine. Gaige and Haley (who we also know from the previous books) meet at the bar one night and since Haley

"To have someone look at me differently in a good way. This friendship with Haley allows me that."

Oh my Gaige!!!

I've been so excited for this story!
Teagan went above and beyond my expectations!

This book pulled so many of my heartstrings.
Gaige and Haley each have such complex backstorys, but they somehow mesh into a beautiful love story.

"A good something?"

Y'all, I have a new book boyfriend and his name is Gaige. Holy amazing. I loved that Here's to Now was told solely from his perspective, even if it did make Haley a little harder for me to connect with. I still liked her — and loved THEM — but he was the star of the show here. But man, did they give me all the freaking feels with their slow burn, friends first romance.

Gaige's past is seriously messy. It's filled with heavy stuff that's weighed

I was going to wait until it was closer to release but I decided what the heck. First let me say I love Gaige. I have been waiting for his story for what seems forever but his was worth the wait. Gaige was unexpected and complex but simple at the same time. He was everything you look for in a guy. He was mysterious, quiet but has a huge heart.

How Haley and Gaige began on their journey made me smile and laugh. I love how Gaige opened himself up to Haley and how Gaige was able to pull back Haley'

First I have to say WOW!! Gaige and Haley were awesome together. This is the first book I have read by this author and I just have to say how the heck did I miss this author and this series.. I will definitely be going back and reading the other books as soon as possible..

I was hooked from page one until the very end and oh what an ending..

Teagan has done it again with her one-liners
Here's to Now is her 3rd novel but fourth book in the series.. she also has a novella published and this is by far her best work yet!
Although I am partial to Tucker, Gaige's story is captivating and a page turner with a few surprises along the way. It's funny and heartfelt.. a must-read!
Can't wait for her next book!

Whew! I did not expect that. Here’s to Now took me on a ride. That is for sure. I thought I knew who she was going to end up with when I read book one. Boy was I wrong. Let me tell you though. The surprise was pleasant. This book is not like any others that I have read. It is even very different than the others in the series. I am in love with this story.
The plot of this book intrigued me. I knew it was about Hayley, Rae’s sister, but I was unsure who the man was. Add in the Vegas Wedding tease

I know what you are thinking right now after reading the blurb: "Not another book in which two characters get drunk in Vegas, get married in front of Elvis, only to wake up the next morning, regretting their decision and demanding an annulment." I had similar thoughts before diving into the story because it sounds so cliché. But let me ease your concerns right now: the focus in this book is not on the wedding. Yes, it is a p

So, if you’ve been following this series you know who both Hayley and Gaige are, well this is there story. Both have an extremely messy past and hope for the futures to be bright but aren’t quite sure if that’s possible. Heres to Now takes you on a journey of growth and putting ghosts where they belong.

A bit overly dramatic

For a book written from the male’s perspective, I felt as though the angst he described was a bit over played and overly dramatic. The rational he uses for lying by omission seems cowardly and makes me like him less. The author’s use of foreboding was excessive and frequently referenced things that were pretty lame when they were finally revealed. Conversely, there were several gaps where the story just skipped huge periods of time and made brief references to events that mi

As they spend more time with one another their friendship grows. Do they have a chance to be more or will the things they hide break them apart?

Its official, Gaige is my new book boyfriend, just as i knew he would be from the very first book in this series.

Mysterious, brooding, hot, caring, and understanding are just a few words i would use to describe Gaige. He pulled me in from the very first time i met him and now thats it, im hooked and im never giving him up. I fell so hard for him and my heart broke for him everytime he revealed another secret from his past. In the end im so happy he got his HEA and in the very best way possible.

Gaige and Haley were a wrecking ball (queue Miley) Their lives were destructive and you'd think they would learn from their mistakes.

Gaige led a tough life made entirely of bad decisions. Of course these were decisions started by an angry 16 year old and bled into his adult life. He tried he really did. Haley is s firecracker with secrets of her own. She's a force with a smart mouth. Yet who is the real Haley? One night Haley shows up at a bar where he's trying to unwind from his day. On a whim

Here’s to now is 3 rd book in this series.

Every part of this series is very good to read and gave me different feeleings:

- first part gave me the sweetest single daddy ever,

- secodn part fill me with the need to be really loved,

- third made me feel hopeless... hopeless in this this kind which can leave You forever broken.

That’s why this last book was the hardest part for me to read. It was hard for me, not because this story was bad written… It was hard for me because I feelt really alone.

I knew, like really knew Gaige's book was going to be my favorite, but I just didn't know why. Now, that I've read it, I can say for sure, this book is so great! Gaige and Haley were unexpected and blew me away!

Gaige is complicated and he is holding on to a huge burden. I felt for him every second of the book. I rooted for him to finally let go and get the HEA he deserved. I thought Haley was unexpectedly great. I knew from book 1 that she was a great secondary character, but I wasn't

Like the previous book, I enjoyed this story. It was cute and romantic and both characters were interesting and layered. My issues mainly rest in that this didn't work as a standalone as much as it should have (especially in the year long break between parts 1 and 2) and that it was really missing Haley's POV. Maybe it's because I haven't read the first book in this series, but I feel like I didn't really get to know Haley as much as I should have (and not through Gaige's eyes) because of that l ...more

Gaige has a past that he regrets and would like to forget. He has turned his life around and tends to keep to himself but the night he meets Hayley he begins to want more.

Hayley has her own past she is dealing with but there is something about Gaige that feels different. They start out as friends, not realizing they are connected in a way neither imagined, however the feelings become much stronger but is it enough to overcome the demons of the past?

I really enjoyed these two together as although
