“I couldn’t help but fall in love with these characters because they worm their way into your heart so easily.”
~ Under the Covers

Sarina Bowen knows how to get to the core feeling of things.  HELLO FOREVER is another great story about two young men that have their own struggles, but that can be stronger at facing adversities if they are together.

I was expecting this book to be a continuation of Josh and Caleb’s story.  Surprisingly, and in a good way, this is a different couple.  Axel and Caxton met while they were young and saw each other at church camp and the occasional church visit.   They quickly bonded during that time, making their friendship one of the best things about those years.  Until one day they decided to confront the feelings that had been developing between them and got caught by a priest.  Cax was never seen again afterwards until life reunites them years later.

There was something vulnerable and open about this story.  Cax with his issues and Axel being the one completely open and going for it.  Cax still has a lot to deal with in his own life.  His father is a terrible man, and Cax is the only one there to protect his siblings from him.  He’s taken on a lot of responsibility on his shoulders and put his own desires on the back burner.  The fact that he can have a second chance with the only man he ever loved is both everything he ever wanted, and torture at the same time.  Just a little too early for his plans.

This was sweet and sad, sexy and tender, all at the same time.  I couldn’t help but fall in love with these characters because they worm their way into your heart so easily.  Definitely a feel good story and I can’t wait to get more.

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont's Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.

I’m a 32 sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me) and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
