Forever My Saint
She speaks of her brother, my Saint, the man who lost everything to set me free.
I believed he was dead. I saw it with my own two eyes. But when Zoey proves he’s alive and being held captive by a monster, I know what I have to do.
It’s t ...more
Just WTF and Holy Hell. I don't know even know how to sum up this book and that may be because I stayed up until 5 am addicted to this sucker but it was so completely worth the sleep deprivation.
Everything led up to this book like a final countdown, like the frigging siege of Leningrad. Mon ...more
this is the last book in all the pretty things trilogy and OMG I loved this book so much, It’s my favorite of this trilogy. I was crying from the first chapter to the last one.
The amount of pain these characters have to go through in this book was painful and such an emotional rollercoaster. Saint is such a strong character who loves with all his heart and he’ll do anything for his loved ones even after everything oscar did to him, he still tried to heal from that.
Some scenes made me bawling ...more

#3 forever my saint — 3.5 stars
uh my feelings are a bit murky on this one. i want to say this is an epic and phenomenal conclusion to the trilogy, but there’s a part of me that doesnt want me to say it. and it’s frustrating bcs i dont exactly know why.
first of all, i cant believe aleksei will get his own book. even if he’s “the lesser of two evils”, it doesnt sit right with me that by the end of the book he’s unscathed and get t ...more
The male character is so mentally strong and male with M, because he confirm what his feelings are after everything, I don’t see anything like this in a long time. He is the man!
What I say about the female character: she is epic
“ I am woman, hear me roar, and I will take it like the fucking fierce woman that I am. This isn’t a man’s world; this is my world. With that as my newfound mantra, I brace ...more
DID I MENTION FUCK?
I need a drink or 12...
Completely. Utterly. Thoroughly.
I'm not sure how to come back from that...
Fair warning... I am not going to censor myself, there will be a lot of the F word... and maybe a few more curse words. It's what Ms. James books do to me...
In a matter of two days, I have devoured this book twice, the second was just as incredible as the first time... And I went into it the second time trying to put together words that woul ...more
Forever My Saint is book 3 in the All The Pretty Things Trilogy and the end of Saint and Willow's story. First I must say that I am so happy I took a chance on this new to me author because I loved her story telling and her writing. Unfortunately this book left me disappointed and wanting. The beginning was heartbreaking, the condition Willow finds Saint in broke my heart. Saint is just a shell of who he was, he has been beaten, violated, and humiliated. I think the worst thing for me i ...more

The growth and development of the characters from book 1 to book 3 is impressive. I really enjoyed seeing the strength both physically and mentally in Willow.
This book, no, this series will hold you captive and have you in an array of emotions. It is an unforgettable ...more
This is likely the hardest review I've had to write so far.
They don't ever come easy for me, yet this one feels different somehow.
In this bookworm life of mine, I've read everything, from the beautiful, blissful, heartwarming and fulfilling stories to some of the most twisted, dark, intense, heartbreaking tales - and all else that resides in between. And I love them all; every single one of them mean something to me.
But... I don't know.
It's not just that I'm struggling to start it - that's a re ...more
"You once said my demons dance with yours. And you're right. They always have. Our love wasn't perfect, but it was ours. And it was worth every single imperfect moment."
WOW this series was f*cked up and extremely dark but I was hooked from start to finish. That ending was crazy.
TWS: R*pe, kidnapping, murder
I don't even know how to express my feelings towards this book but anything I will say I can guarantee it won't make this book justice.
Forever My Saint was pure perfection and without a single doubt was the best book in the trilogy! And not only that but one of the best conclusions I have ever read. My goodness, this book was INSANE! So much happens, so much character development and I mean in a lot of the characters. Jesus and the emotions oh lordie, you guys it's a complete r ...more
I cannot believe the originality of this series! This story kept me in total suspense. I didn't know how it would end until the last page!
The depths and darkness that Saint & Willow were taken into made me wonder if we would ever see the light and if we did would it ever be the same? Then there is my flawed and imperfect Alek! These characters live in the shadows. Their world is like nothing I' ...more
Diving into this trilogy I was a bit hesitant due to the rave reviews simply because whenever a novel(s) is highly praised I always end up disliking it. Surprise, surprise. I was stuck between a rock and a hard place. Half loving it, half hating it (moreso).
Pros: "All The Pretty Things" trilogy is a dark twisted romance that easily immersed me into Willow's horrific journey in escaping her Russian kidnappers after being sold by someone she loved and trusted. From beginning to end ...more
Eh...well, it took me over a month to finish this book, so...yeah.
Seemed soooo looong to me. There were some good parts but, I don't know. Definitely did not keep me glued to the pages as I had hoped for a series finale. ...more
❤❤PHENOMENAL BRILLIANT MINDBLOWING SUSPENSEFUL❤❤
😍😍MONICA JAMES YOU ARE A DAMN GENIUS😍😍
You are my heart. My life. I promise to protect you for the rest of my life. You were once my captive, but now I'm yours. I love you."
From the moment I began reading Bad Saint I knew that Monica had written something that was going to be extremely special. Now that I have finished reading FOREVER MY SAINT I need to correct myself. This trilogy wasn't special, it was PHENOMENAL. Th ...more
Thank you so much for this book Monica! I was so anxious and at the same time disappointed to know this was the last book for Saint and Willow! Ahhhh I love these two!!!
As usual Monica does not falter and she continues the series exactly where we left off in Book 2!
Everyone is trying to gather their bearings figuring out how to move on with their lives and with what they are left with.
Willow is completely lost without Saint but Zoey comes with news. New ...more
This review is my immediate thoughts and feeling of this book so shit is about to be crazy. My head is absolutely in the fucking shed and this may not make a lick of sense so don't fucking judge me and absolutely blame Monica because she got me fucked up. Now.. this will be a gush fest. I as a reader think that any author who can make me feel SOMETHING, anything so strongly.. absofuckinglutely deserves to be given the credit. Deserves the gush fest. It's no easy fe ...more
I'm so sad to see this series come to an end. It's so bittersweet to see the conclusion of Willow and Saint. In Forever My Saint you get to see how much Willow has grown from when she was first kidnapped. There were times I thought to myself...There is no way Saint is going to come out on the other side emotionally intact. The depths that Willow and Saint was pulled into the darkness made me really think they wouldn't make it. I honestly didn't think they would be the same. I think ...more
When she is not writing, Monica is busy running her own business, but she always finds a balance between the two. She enjoys writing honest, heartfelt, and turbulent stories, hoping to leave an imprint on her readers. She draws her inspiration from life.
She is a bestselling author in the U.S., ...more
