So what does a twenty-nine year old, soon to be divorced mother of five year old son, CJ, and a nineteen year old college football star have in common? Chemistry! Lots and lots of steamy chemistry! Their absolute love and devotion to the adorable CJ, is an another undeniable tie that binds!

Seeing as her son’s father has basically been AWOL since they separated, Marin regrets there is no man in CJ’s life to look up to and learn from. Trace Forester, her sinfully hot looking, overly confident neig
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

"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

Unf. That was the noise I made when not only is this college sports romance an age-gap trope.
It was also the heroine being the elder!


Yes. Yes! I was so excited. It's always usually the guy being older so I fell into this book face first and didn't emerge until I was finished and fully sated.

I loved Finlay and Caden from book one (read it, it's gorgeous!) but Trace and Marin stole me completely. I LOVE THEM SO MUCH. Trace fina
Trace is a wide receiver for his college football team and has always had a crush on Marin, the hot mom on the block. Marin is in the process of getting a divorce from her ex-husband. She notices her young son is needing a positive male influence and asks Trace if he can spend some time with him, she doesn't expect to be attracted to Trace or that the feeling is mutual. With an age difference though and Trace not even twenty yet, Marin isn't sure if she should take a chance with Trace or if he w ...more

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.

Overall I thought this was a sweet romance, I loved Trace - he was a great hero. I liked the heroine but there was a bit of instalove on her part and at times she seemed more immature than the hero.What I really didn't like was the contrived way the author ended a conflict.

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
This was on my top Feb reads, not sure why I didn't review it. Oops!!!

This so far is my favorite from this author. Beautifully written, gorgeously engaging. I've always loved the age-gap trope, seeing two people you wouldn't ordinary put together until chemistry steps in.

But what makes this book different in that trope is you don't often see the man being the younger of the couple.

Forester is so mature for a college boy I was just swept up in his alpha personality in his pursuit of hot single

I gave this book 4.5 stars!!!

I'm not to big on the whole cougar stories and don't read them often, but their was just something in the synopsis that drew me in and I had to give this story a try. I'm so glad I did. Trace stole my heart and I don't think he will give it back. I found for a 19 year old senior college student he was well mature beyond his years. I know several 19 year olds that don't have half the maturely that he has. I found Trace to be

I'm so jealous Marin got Trace. I'd make a better cougar for that gorgeous college boy!

I adored J. Nathan's style. Just adored.

And I adore this book and it's age-gap romance ( the boy is the younger!!! *still swooning* )

I'd recommend to anyone who loves the sports romance trope. And who has ever wanted to have their fantasy lover come to life. And who loves HEA.

I want more Trace Forester.

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.

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.
