From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold’s life everything was forever changed. After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life was heading down Pleasantville Lane. Everything was perfect.

Or so they thought.

With help from his parent’s inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure, utilizing all his free time. What was once their life- carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship. But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it’s Alexa’s happiness. There’s nothing Nolan Pratt won’t do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.

When Nolan’s past resurfaces- a past that Alexa didn’t know existed- will it all be too much? Will Nolan’s devotion to Alexa’s happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the only thing that has ever mattered in his life? Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn’t determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn’t think he deserves?

When going into Giving You Forever I had high hopes, especially with the overwhelming amount of positive reviews. I could not believe nothing, Absolutely nothing but boredom is what I felt for 70% of this. All I receive was a taste of drama then back to boredom.

Part of my disappointment was caused by my lack of research. I did not know before reading that Giving You Forever is part 4 of a series. Oops.

While Ms. Wilcox was able to articulate a very beautiful story I was just out done by the day to day of wedding planning, going to school, and getting a business of the ground. Honestly its the stuff I do everyday out side of the wedding planning and opening a business.

Nolan and Alexa have a very loving relationships and they equally think the world of each other. Which at times was gag me with a spoon worthy. I will admit that their sex life was off the charts caliente!

It does need to be said that even that even though that these two were crazy in love, their relationship needed some major work before walking down the isle. Alexa on some level has an immature personality. I mean who runs home to mommy and daddy because of a minor disagreement. Nolan sent me over the edge when he left Alexa during a time she needed him the most. He even had the audacity to leave a note rather than face her.

Needless to say I felt Giving You Forever felt like forever to get through to the point I did not think I would finish, but that's not going to stop me from starting from the beginning with this series. Maybe I'll find a new appreciation for Nolan and Alexa or The Forever Series for that matter?

 About the Author

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.
I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book… Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James.  I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all.  But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.
I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days.  Yes, three books in three days.
I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head. 
I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it,  Planning on Forever was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I’m still writing.
