If you had a chance for your fantasies to become reality would you take it? Even if it was a challenge?

If you have never read a book by J. Nathan you are missing out. This woman's words speak to me...I have been a fan of hers since she released her debut novel Until Alex back in 2014. I am just fascinated with her characters, the chemistry and banter of them just hooks you. Plus all her stories have depth and feel real! For Forester is another one to add to that list. Ummm the cover, I love it!
Happy book birthday

Once again J. Nathan had me turning page after page without being able to stop. Her writing flows smoothly with a fast pace feel but without it being rushed. For Forester has the perfect mix of sweet and sexy.

Right on the heels of kicking her self-centered, cheating husband to the curve, Marin finds herself picking up the pieces of her broken life. Wanting to have a good male role model for her son, she asks her neighbor to spend some time playing catch with CJ and ends up

Reading For Finlay, I loved those characters so much and I definitely had a soft spot for Trace Forester so when I found out he was getting book, of course I jumped on it!

As for the relationship aspect of this book, I sorry to be blunt but here it is: I feel like this is just a mask. A lot of pretty words, but no substance behind it. I don't understand how, why, or where this relationship even came from. Separated from her husband and son in tow, Marin meets Trace (again) and he pursues her. Th

"How do you convey what it feels like to get something you've wanted for so long?

This quote pretty much says enough about how this story goes. This is a story of a man's fantasy turned into a reality. But we all know, life never gives bliss without hardships. Or should I say hard kicks?

Trace Forester is a nineteen-year-old (nearly twenty) who knows he's got skills, not only as Alabama's star wide receiver. Even outside the field, he's got it. But when he came home for summer to make some cash b

Esse foi o terceiro livro da autora que li e por se tratar de um romance envolvendo criança fofa e diferença de idade entre os protagonistas, ganhou pontinhos comigo!

Marin é a mãe de um garotinho fofo e está recém separada, naquela fase de mudanças, descobertas e de tomar as rédeas para fazer algo melhor para ela mesma e seu filho. Uma de suas recentes decisões é contratar Trace como um acompanhante de seu filho, para que dessa maneira, o garotinho tenha uma presença masculina mais constante

He nodded. “It makes me feel like you see me.”

We absolutely LOVED this book! It was exactly what we needed and everything we love! Talk about swooooon! This book hit all the right spots and not one, but two sweet guys stole our hearts.

"I've always seen you, Marin. All those years. And it's just crazy to finally have you looking back and seeing me."

I am literally HIGH on smiles right now. This was THE most perfect book to read in between heavier ones because there was zero angst, and smiles galore. OMG....I am officially in love with Trace Forester and have decided that maaaaaaybe I can handle this trope. HAHA!

I received An ARC of For Forester by J. Nathan in exchange for an honest review.

This is the second book that I read by this author so it was an easy decision to read For Forester. I can't put into words how much I enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced and the story was well-developed. Readers if you love the older woman/younger man concept, then you will like the relationship that blossoms between Marin and Trace. The attraction that sizzles between the two isn't just physical, it's a lot more th

For Forester was a book I literally inhaled in one sitting. From the very beginning I just hooked, maybe it was the way Ms. Nathan sets the story up, maybe it was that I loved the previous book and knew this one would be just as great, or maybe it was just that I had been craving a book just like this. I love sports romances that isn’t a secret, and behind hockey football is my favorite, add in a hot college foot

For Forester by J. Nathan a fab five star read. This is the second book in the For You series, they can each be read as stand-alone as each book follows a different couple but each story is intertwined in some way. This is the story of Trace, Marin and a lovely little boy named CJ. They are new adult romances so there is some passion but it’s not all hot and naughty all the way through.

Oh my god. Hot AF football player chases the neighborhood fantasy woman and wins! Is that a tabloid headline or what?

May to December romances are a struggle to get right. The realism of their attraction. The ability of the author to make the age gap disappear within the nature of the characters and their development. All things that can seriously fuck up a story line.

Trace is a bit larger than life, and a hell of a lot more of an adult man than his age belies. I really liked that he was the ins

J. Nathan kinda snuck her way into my top ten favorite authors. It all started a couple of books ago when I took a chance on a net galley arc of a book in another series of hers and before I knew it I was devouring everything she put out. And when this book came out I was too dang excited. It was then that I realized, I loved this authors books HARD. Her books are angsty, sweet, sexy, and somehow still manage to make me laugh and grin through out.

I admit, I was worried about this one. Books wher

For Forester (For You Book 2) by J. Nathan is the second book in her For You series. This book can be read as a standalone but I highly suggest that you read book 1 as I know you will enjoy it just as much as this one. When reading a book from a series, one of my favorite things is when you get to see what happens to the characters in previous books. This one is just one of those.

For Forester is another amazing novel from J. Nathan. It is such a sweet and sexy novel that readers will fall in love with. I know I did. For Forester can be read as a standalone, but if you read For Finlay, you will recognize some of the characters in this book, including our main hottie! I absolutely loved this book and hope that she continues to write the stories of the minor characters in this universe.

Completely, whole heartedly in love with For Forester by J. Nathan! Ever since I read For Finley, I knew I had to get my hands on the second book in the For You series. J. Nathan truly knows how to capture the reader's heart by her well-written storyline and emotionally entranced characters. I didn’t want to finish this book due to not wanting it to end!

I absolutely adore J. Nathan's writing. She has a way of putting life into perspective with her characters, who are anything but everyday sort of people. Don't get me wrong they are empathiseable and relatable, but they have a certain something about them that is awing. To this day I still cannot get Finlay and Caden out of my mind, For Finlay will forever remain in my heart and lucky me, my heart seems to be rather stretchy because For Forester

For Forester is a standalone, sports romance novel from J Nathan. The second book in the For You series, although each book can be read individually, we follow Marin and Trace as they find themselves in an unexpected relationship. Written in first person, we see things from both characters POV as chapters alternate between their viewpoints. I already liked this authors work, but now I can safely say I am in love!

J. Nathan is the author of new adult and sports romances with cocky heroes and sassy heroines. When she's not writing, she's a total romance junkie! Add an alpha male who's unlikable in the beginning...even better. She loves watermelon margaritas, guys in backward hats, country music, the summertime, and her amazing family and friends.

Feel free to connect with her:
