From USA Today Bestselling Author comes the fourth book in the This Is Series.
Becoming a teen mom at sixteen was not what I expected, but then again, neither was being a single parent. Still, I wouldn’t change my past because that boy is my world.

Hockey is the only thing my son seems to care about, so I work two jobs to make sure he can play. I’d do anything to

This is Forever is the final book in Natasha Madison's This is series but can be read as a complete standalone. Somehow I've gotten behind with this authors books and actually haven't read any of the previous books and I had no problem jumping in with this book.

Justin and Caroline had a great romance and I found them really intriguing because of their differences. At first Justin came off as a carefree guy that had hockey as his main focus and wasn't looking for an

This was the most emotional and dramatic story of the series.
I was very excited with the author’s writing development, it was firm and the plot was tight. No unnecessary details and waffle.

All three main characters stole pieces of my heart and thrilled me.
Caroline was such a strong character while struggling to survive and offer the best she could for her adorable young son.
Justin was a fabulous character, caring, with a heart of gold.
Dylan was an amazing kid that coul

This book is full of clichés! But you know what? I DON’T CARE!

Because I had a great time reading it. Because the day flew by while I was enjoying myself. And because sometimes when clichés are done properly, they leave you with stars in the eyes, all mushy and swoony.

That being said if you can’t stand clichés, don’t read it!


Cliché number one: the girl from the wrong side of the track saved by the rich boy.

Caroline has nothing material. She owns six pieces of clothes

BE STILL MY FUCKING HEART !!!!!! Natasha Madison went directly for the heartstrings in this one and SWOON SWOON SWOON.

This is ROMANCE !!! As cliche as this might sound, This Is Forever is a STEAL YOUR HEART READ !!

From the instant we are introduced to the characters I was hooked. And as soon as I got to know the heroine's story in particular I settled in for what I hoped was a romance with a HERO that will SAVE THE DAY and I was not disappointed in the slightest.

This story will pull you in, it

Argh!! I am SO bummed. Seriously. I like Natasha Madison. I've read a few of her books, and I've been able to smile throughout them and enjoy them because her writing is simple, her stories are easy and fun. Shockingly enough, I couldn't make it through this one. The number of issues I had didn't make this an easy or fun read.

Predictable: my gosh, I could tell you what was going to happen before it happened, based on what had just happened. I don't want to know what's going on.

This was an enjoyable read and it had a strong Cinderella vibe to it. Caroline is a struggling 26yo single Mum who is doing everything she can to support her 8yo son, Dylan who is a very talented hockey player and he is enrolled into a Summer hockey camp run by Justin Stone . Justin is a legendary player in the prime of his career. He is the 24yo son of Cooper Stone Something So Right and has grown up in a close knit , loving and wealthy family. Caroline's life is very

I completely loved the “Something So,” series and this spin-off series! I’m so attached to these characters, and their dynamic...I can’t believe it’s over:(

I couldn’t have loved Justin more...he is most definitely his fathers son! The way he protected, cared for, and loved Caroline and Dylan...totally pulled at my heart strings! The ending choked me up, and was the perfect way to end this series!!!

Awww, this story!!! I’m still reeling from all the swoon factors this novel offered me! I’ve been a fan of the Something So Series / This Is Series since the start! Each new book with the Stone family is a real treat because I adore all those characters! Natasha Madison crafted such an amazing universe filled with humour, emotion and sweetness! This Is Forever might be my absolute favorite – tied with Something So Irresistible – in both series!

AMAZING!!! That is the one word I can say to describe This Is Forever.

This book was my favorite of this series. It was emotional and heartfelt, but also had me laughing out loud. Natasha even had me tearing up at certain points of the story.

I have absolutely LOVED this Stone clan. This family truly is the meaning of family. Whether it’s by blood or not, they look out for one another. And that is no different for Justin when he meets
To me the heroine plays a major part of the outcome and my enjoyment of a book. We are subjected to a single parent who was involved with a man who has a drug problem. I understand when I read books that authors need to create drama but saddling this already struggling woman with an insane amount of credit card debt is unnecessary drama. Besides why wouldn’t you after having divorced someone, contest the legality of him opening credit cards in your name? It’s called credit card fraud people and ...more

When I say I've never read a book with a main character as swoon-worthy as Justin, I am not lying. I've been patiently waiting for Justin's book for what seems like EVER and he was worth every second. He's sweet, alpha in his own way, and a man of his word. He's patient and caring. He's understanding. Most of all, he doesn't push.

Caroline is sweet mother of one that takes the world on her shoulders...and does it with a smile on her face. She won't let you see she's broken or that she's about to

If by reading This Is Forever is any indication of what this next year entails for books being released by this author then I am one lucky girl, because there is more phenomenal headed my way. Madison's interconnected standalones featuring the Stones, absolutely SLAY me! This Is Forever was a story that held some weight some, serious weight, that tugged hard on my heartstrings.

Justin Stone may be the baby of the family but he becomes all man.... and what a man he is..... in this story!!! Justin is a fantastic hero...sweet, sexy, alpha and the epitome of the perfect book boyfriend. But Caroline also is the most fantastic heroine. She's a single mom who's just doing all she can for her son. But she's also terribly strong and courageous. The story line was soooo well written and just flowed so nicely. It is quite possible that this may be tied for my favor

I discovered Natasha's work last year and she became one of my favourite others with lightning speed. I figured I'd kick off the new year with her newest release as my first read in the new decade.

When I started This is Forever I wasn't aware that this is the final book in this series but when I realized the author brought back the trope that started it all, I had a bad feeling things are coming to a full circle. I'm so sad to see it end, but THANK YOU! Because these books brought so much joy in

Natasha Madison has done it again and given us a story that will stay with us for years to come 😁 She has outdone herself-saving the best for last and even though I'm sad I'm so thankful that Natasha Madison keeps sharing her beautiful gems with us ❤

Justin Stone-the baby of the family had one passion-hockey so the thought of ever settling down for one woman never crossed his mind until Caroline crosses his sight and he knows he's done for.

This the love story of Justin and Caroline. It's a single-mom, sports romance...

Justin is a hockey superstar, Caroline is a struggling single mother to Dylan. I'm sure you've already read the blurb so I won't repeat that here.

I enjoyed the story... it's something you'd want to read to pass the time and escape from reality... I mean, who wouldn't want to be saved by a handsome prince charming, right?

My only complain is that the story was fast paced... I know it's a book and it's fiction but i

I don't think I have read any Natasha Madison book that hasn't touched me in one way or another. This book when I started I knew it was going to make me cry, and seriously I was hooked.

As the son of Cooper and Parker you just knew that Justin was going to be another freak God! And he was. Huge heart and sweet and caring and protective, what more do you want.

My heart just broke for Caroline. She needed some happiness in her life, she and her little boy.

This series ended with a blast. This Is Forever was a beautiful,heartbreaking and heartwarming read, I've shed a lot of tears but I've also smiled a lot.

Justin is a great hockey player and a nice, put together guy. Caroline is a single mother, with an addicted ex and a lot of debts, who tries to give her son the best, sheltered life she can.
I really liked Caroline strenghth, Dylan cuteness and Justin loving soul.

Justin and Caroline and little Dylan's story deserved to be told and I can't thank

My first 5 stars for 2020!

I freaking loved this book! A fantastically entertaining, fun, emotional and sexy single-parent sports romance with a protective, sweet-hearted, alpha hero to die for. I couldn’t put it down.

This is Forever is the fourth and last installment in the highly addictive and entertaining This Is Series by Natasha Madison. She knows how to write sports romance that gives you all the feels and that's why I'm in love with her hockey books. This is Forever is a beautiful and touching story about a young single mom who is struggling to provide for her little son and a successful and wealthy sportsman who comes from a famous family of renowned hockey players.

Caroline and Justin were a great couple and I was definitely invested in the parts of the story that revolved around their relationship. I loved how "all in" he was, and how reluctant she was because she had lived a life that kept her from thinking that others could be there for her without wanting more than she was willing to give in return.

I struggled, a little, with some of the addition of the rest of the family. And, while I know this is part of the s

This book was what I want in a romance novel and then some.... this hockey themed single mom trope hits the readers with so many emotions it will keep you glued to your kindle.

Madison weaves heavy and heartbreaking with funny and witty to craft a read that will touch your heart and soul.

As soon as I read the blurb, I knew I was going to read and enjoy that book, even though I didn't read the rest of the series. And boy, did I really enjoy it; I couldn't stop smiling and laughing. This book was everything I asked for, a single parent melted with some hockey player.

I started off this series (the original books) loving Matthew. He was my book boyfriend. And then I met Evan and he was mine. (Sorry Matthew!)
But now I’m all ‘Matthew and Evan who???’.
I mean seriously?!?!
No book boyfriend is better then Justin Stone.
No one.
And he’s mine.
I’m truly calling dibs on him.
He’s the whole package. The ultimate dream man.

But for the sake of this story, him and Caroline are perfect for each other! And I love a good single parent romance which means Dylan is just the icing
