This was the first book I've read in this series, and while it can be read as a standalone, I might have have liked Nolan more if I had read the previous books. I didn't end up liking him, though, and was close to wishing Alexa would find someone more worthy of her. They're written as being perfect for each other, but Nolan has an ugly temper and can be rude. I wouldn't be as understanding as Alexa if my fiance was downright rude to people while we were out in public together. Not to mention the way he treated her friend.Was this review helpful?

While the issues they faced in their relationship were completely realistic, I had a hard time buying that after three years they were still going at it like rabbits. Don't get me wrong - the sex scenes were smoking hot - but it seemed like every two seconds they were ripping each other's clothes off. I was worn out, and I was just reading the book!!
With the stress of Nolan starting up his own business and Alexa finishing college all while planning a wedding, Nolan's past rears its ugly head and throws more stress at them to deal with. The way Nolan dealt with his problems towards the end of the book just made me not like him even more. His reaction caught me off guard, and I thought Alexa deserved better from him after all they had been through.
I did enjoy the author's writing style, I loved Alexa, and like I said earlier, the love scenes were hot! I loved the way Alexa fit in so well with Nolan's family, and there were twists in the story I didn't see coming. I plan on reading the other books in this series. I'm interested to see how Nolan and Alexa's relationship began and what it was like back then.

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.Was this review helpful?

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?

One thing's for certain...this was a hot book packed with lots of S.E.X.! I've read the other books in this series and I have to admit that I was more than curious as to how Wilcox was going to move the series into the Erotic category. But, out of all the characters in this series...Nolan and Alexa definitely fit. So, what did I think? Well, I liked it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Nolan and Alexa have a lot going on. They're trying to plan their wedding, start a new business, and Alexa needs to finish school. That's a lot of stress to deal with. The one thing that is constant, is their love for each other. This couple simple enjoys being around each other. They seem to bring out the best in one another too. Aside from learning more about them as a couple, I liked getting a better idea about what Nolan's past was like. It seemed that he had some healing to do and he does ultimately get there, but it takes a while. Nolan was really the key for me in this book. I like Nolan, but what makes him appealing is how he treats Alexa. He really does put her needs first and is always finding ways to make her feel special. As for the sex...as I said, it was hot. And there is a lot of sex going on here. I did enjoy it, but there were some scenes that felt a bit repetitive.
Overall, I liked it and it was interesting to see this couple in more of a spicy light. I felt that Wilcox made the transition into Erotica well. In fact, I'd like to see her write an Erotic book about Matt!!! If you're looking for a quick sexy read, check this one out!
