Review: Forever with You ( Fixed #3 ) by Laurelin Paige

Forever with You by Laurelin Paige

Alayna Withers relationship with Hudson Pierce has tested both her and his ability to trust. They decide that the only way they can move forward together is with open doors and transparency. It won’t be easy for the scarred lovers, but they’re committed to each other more now than ever. Alayna, in particular, has grown through their trials, and has emerged more confident and faithful to the man she loves. 

But while the pair is focused on the future, their past shows up again to threaten their fragile bond. Promises that were made are broken, and Alayna learns that Hudson still has very potent secrets—secrets that will tear them both apart. As much as she feels for him, her ability to forgive and forget is tested beyond her limits. 

Even though she found the only man who could fix her, a forever with Hudson seems more and more out of reach. 




What a loads of clusterfuck moments we had here. This book make me annoyed, angry, frustrated, infuriated and basically wanted to strangle fictional people or maybe I need a really strong drink. I might just end up being Sophia's drinking buddy. 

I've read all 3 books back to back and this one was the one with the most revelation and WTF moment. Remember Stacy who wanted to show Laynie a video of Hudson? I'm dying to uncover what was this big secret that Hudson was hiding. Laynie and Hudson was also dealing with this psychotic Celia who was set to destroy both of them. With so much drama going on, I wanted the secret to be something huge and epic. Well, as it turn out it was not as epic as I had imagine, but it kinda make sense and it explains a lot. It makes me wanna reread Book 1 in a different view.

This started off with much sweetness and hotness. Laynie and Hudson was so in love. For once, Laynie wanted to come clean and she insist on transparency and trust. Hudson agreed. They both fully committed to each other.

"This is better than a beginning. This is what happens next."

But it was obvious Hudson was still hiding something. Even though how hard he tried to convince her that he loves her and nothing else matter, to Laynie everything matters. She wanted to get inside him and know everything about him. Well, they said curiosity kills the cat. It might just be true.

Before I tried making this sounds like angst overload, there were lots of hotness and humor in it too. I will repeat once again, they sex scenes were freaking hot, no matter the location.

"Jesus, now I'm hard again."
"Are you kidding me?"
"No. I'm not."
"I saw Celia."
"And now I'm soft."

I thought Laynie would finally morph into this strong heroine in Book 3, but she was still this person who was constantly at edge, paranoid, suspicious and her curiosity might just ruined everything. I know, I know, Hudson was at fault too. But from my perspective as Laynie's first person POV, she was overly suspicious and totally double standard in regards the Hudson. She kept going on and on about Norma and Hudson had to repeatedly reassured her, but it seems like everything fall on deaf ears. Have she seen the way she was with David? Urg! Double standard much? 

Nevertheless, I don't why that no matter how much I'm pissed at Laynie, I still rooting for her. If it was any other book, I would have DNF long ago.

I had big crush on Hudson Pierce since book 1. He was an enigma, elusive and complicated, and I wanted to know everything about him. He was sexy and domineering when it comes to Laynie. I don't know what kind of trance he put on me because I was totally soaking up his every words. 

Now kiss me because you've made me a very happy man."

Now that we knew the truth, should I hate him? If Laynie was the perfect heroine, maybe I will asked her to dump his sorry ass, no matter how hard he grovel. But since Laynie was such an imperfect heroine and I really felt the sincerity in Hudson to make things right, I thought they both were made for each other. You get my drill? 

For all the frustration I had while reading this series. It was superbly addictive and entertaining. It was a great ending for Laynie and Hudson. I hate them. I love them. We had a nice little epilogue from Hudson's POV. The next book will be on Gwen, Laynie's new assistant manager at the club.

Rating 5/5
