Nothing to say but this is the most useless book ever.
Adds nothing and it only wasted my time. It was just a set up for a new series because it ends with a daughter of one of the women was in accident. So it was a super short book with a cliffhanger. Am I interested in the next book? NOPE

LOVED! Of course I am the queen of epilogue love so this was a jackpot find. just like visiting old friends. The ladies decide to take a week away from their intense husbands and family life just to unwind a bit. Don't worry, we see Liam and Harrison and Jimmy in all their glory as they send their wives off to paradise. We get updates on everyone from the Beaumont world with alternating POV from the ladies.

You will need to have read the Beaumont Series first before you grab this one. Great set

"Each day, I find I love him more and more."

Oh my goodness!!!
It was so nice seeing the Beaumont gang back together again!

This was a perfect short and sweet catch up!
I love that each chapter was in different POVs of the girls. They each told more of their story to not only the readers, but also to one another.

It felt like getting back together with old friends and talking about the good times, and expressing the feelings that have been building up over time.

You get to know their kids again as the

I was so excited to see that this book was happening, and even more excited when I found out about the spin off series!! I'm so looking forward to that.

This novella is mainly about the 4225 West wives, who go on vacation to The Bahamas to get a week off from mom/wife duties , and also to just catch up with each other, since they don't live in the same town anymore.

The first three chapters, each in each of the girl's pov, start off with sexy time with the hubbies. ;) Then they

I had just finished reading a book and was wondering what to read next when my email alert went off, and my decision was made. Forever Our Boys was on my kindle and waiting to be read and who can resist picking up a Beaumont Series book once it's there. Forever Our Boys is told in alternating points of view from Jenna, Katelyn, and Josie, as they finally get their much deserved peace and quiet away from the children, the boys, and enjoy a girls only holiday.

Heidi McLaughlin gives readers a fabulous treat as the ladies of Beaumont get together for a much needed girls' getaway in Forever Our Boys. And oh how I've missed the Beaumont crew! It is important to note that this story is not a standalone and the rest of the series must be read prior as many past events are referenced throughout. Sure, McLaughlin writes it so newbies can jump in but the story will not be

Simply beautiful. This is what I like - light, all pure love and happiness. It’s with great joy to know that their love is to last a lifetime and still swoony hot. I loved their intertwined families. But you’ll be surprise with the ending, making me jump immdiately to the next novel.

My love of Heidi McLaughlin and her books started with Forever My Girl and on it went and I fell for every single Beaumont Boy there is. I was so excited to hear she was coming out with more from my favorite men and their kick ass families. And if you haven't read this series then you are missing out.

Life has moved on in Beaumont, and Josie, Katelyn and Jenna go away for a girls weekend and catch up on each overs lives

I loved this book and loved catch up with my favorite group of characters. T

It almost had a feeling of coming home, if that makes sense.

Forever Our Boys is a wonderful way to catch up with the Beaumont crew and see just how close Josie, Katelyn and Jenna have remained despite the miles that separate them.

Heidi McLaughlin wrote a very sweet and touching journey as the girls find themselves on a retreat in the Bahamas at the insistence of their wildly hot husbands and their wonderful children.

Fears are brought to the surface along with long-held secrets as they bond even more than they thought possible. A great segue-way for the f

Josie, Katelyn and Jenna take a much needed vacation together to the Bahamas. They all lament on how much they miss their men when they are on the road and away from home doing their tours. Katelyn is the only one able to go along with the band, so she doesn't quite get where Josie and Jenna are coming from. The book begins with all three reflecting on their pasts with their men. We then find them on vacation and enjoying all of the sights and activities their men booked for them. The book does ...more

If you look at shelf titles you'll see that I claim this book ends on a cliff. What I mean by that is this book is a nice little tie-in in bringing the Beaumont series into the Beaumont Next Generation series. We get this vacation from the ladies which ends up being more of an informational kind of a read where we see where everyone landed, by my guesstimation about 12 to 14 years later. I spent a good part of the book trying to figure out exactly how much later this book takes place from my kin ...more

Forever Our Boys is a novella that follows the three leading ladies in the Forever My Girl series by Heidi McLaughlin on a much needed vacation. It’s been years since we last were with them so ALOT has happened. The kids are grown and the band is still working hard. The girls are close as ever and finally have a moment to reconnect and talk about things that have been on their mind.

What I was not prepared for is how this is also a lead up into a spin-off for Heidi’s next amazingness - The Beaumo

Man...have I missed the Beaumont crew! The Beaumont series is one of my all time favorites, and it was fun to catch up with the wives and see where everyone is at this stage in life. This is a very short read, that will only make sense to those familiar with the families of 4225 West. While it was fun to "catch up", what this novella sets up with the kids makes me excited about this series all over again!

If I could right now I would High Five Heidi McLaughlin,
What a great gift she gave us fans. This book was so amazing. It's focus was on Katelyn, Jenna and Josie. You know what's it like to be the wives of the band. It had a lot funny moments. BUT then Heidi very skillfully drops one hell of a bomb.....Simply fantastic
I loved this book! After reading the Beaumont series a few times it was great to learn about what's happening in the lives of Liam and Josie, Harrison and Katelyn, and Jimmy and Jenna over the years. It's a great setup for the books about their kids and I can't wait to read more!

It was a short story about the wives.

This was a cute short story about the wives of the band. Josie, Katelyn, and Jenna all meet up for a week vacation to renew their friendship. The women were glad to see each other but secretly missed their family. The ladies had to end the vacation short due to one of the kids getting hurt. Good story.
I liked this one, liked how we got to see all the couples still going strong. I also really liked how the husbands made the wives go on the trip to relax. It was fun to see the girls just being together. I did get annoyed with how strangers encroached on their time while watching the game. Their bodyguard should have been there to get people away.

When I started the newest Beaumont novella, Forever Our Boys, and after reading just a few pages, it felt like coming home. Those feelings that I had when I first read and experienced their stories, they all come flooding back. I loved the ladies of Beaumont and always wanted more of their stories. Their “girls nights” and girl talk were some of my favorite parts - lots of laughing and all of the ins

I love that the girls got their own book. Their kids are growing up. Josie is still living and Beaumont and doesn't get to see Katelyn and Jenna much anymore, so they are taking a well needed vacation to regroup and see each other again. Each of them has a point of view in this book and you still see the love the boys show them throughout this series. It makes me believe in happily ever afters. These three couples have something so precious and it

This super little addition to The Beaumont Series was everything I hoped it would be.
And while the story effectively concentrates on the women that share the lives of each of the three guys in the band, that didn’t mean that the guys were willing to stay totally out of the picture because if truth be known, these guys quite simply seem to refuse to stay in the background for any reason.
Of course, they wanted their women to relax and enjoy themselves but with these couples, spending time apart is
