Some things you just believe in, even if you've never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It's out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she's got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph's eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.
Nick's self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he's knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she's building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can't walk away. Not when she's the only one who's ever made him wish for forever . . .

Review by Yvette:
Jennifer L. Armentrout’s Wait for You series is one of my all-time favorites, not just because everything this author writes is amazing, but because I enjoy following along with the progression of this series, as the situations, romantic and otherwise, correspond with the evolution of these characters. I may have done a double take when I first learned that Stephanie and Nick, two minor characters from previous books with, shall I say, interesting reputations, would be paired up in Forever with You. Whatever expectations or ideas about their story I had were thrown out the window as their true characters were gradually unveiled. Both Stephanie and Nick came as a pleasant surprise, stealthily sneaking their way into my heart and, while theirs may not have been the story I was anticipating, it turned out to be perfect for them. Incredibly sexy and so sweet your heart will dissolve into a puddle of mush, Forever with You is an unforgettable addition to the series.
With a writing style that is both intelligent and contemporary, reading Forever with You made me feel as though I was having a conversation with a close friend. The narrative is told through Stephanie’s perspective – a perspective that is immensely entertaining thanks to her bluntness, her sassiness, and her laidback sense of humor. To the outside world, she’s this gorgeous, confidant woman who makes no apologies for her casual relations with the opposite sex yet we as readers get to know a different side of her, a more vulnerable side. Admittedly, she’s the kind of character that screams at you to take notice, which is evident from her first meeting with Nick. The two shared a face-fanning, smile-inducing, chemistry-filled instant connection, bonding over their many similarities. The relationship between Nick and Stephanie may have started out hot, heavy, and purely physical, yet once emotions entered into the equation, their dynamic shifted, slowing down to give them the time to open up to each other on a deeper level.
More so than with previous books in the series, Forever with You is a fairly simplistic, character-driven novel, focusing primarily on the development of Nick and Stephanie’s budding romance. This book made me laugh, made me swoon, and tugged on my heartstrings in a manner that I never expected. As a fan of the series, I also relished the appearances of several favorite characters as well as the introduction of a possible new romance. Fast-paced and completely engrossing, Forever with You is 350-plus pages of pure entertainment that had me glued to my Kindle from start to finish.
