Now I'm the one doing the chasing.

G & C Book Blog - Georgette M
his book was such an emotional rollercoaster that you just did not want to get off of!!

I love love love the beautiful British Jimmy "JD" Davis. His character develops greatly throughout this entire book. He's not the typical rock star and he proves time and time again that he is not only worthy of her love but that he truly derserves it! (Don't ask me who because I won't tell you!) His devotion to his woman is astounding!

My rating: 5 of 5 ¿¿ When Jimmy hooks up with the bride's best friend at his bandmate and best friend, 4225 West's front man Liam's wedding, he thought it might get his preoccupation with her out of his system. Instead, he finds his focus slowly changing from lusting to longing. Born in the UK to a father in the music industry, Jimmy learned young in life that commitment and family were difficult to maintain in that lifestyle. He tried once and got burned himself, so now he just enjoyed his rockstar life to the fullest, especially the women who threw themselves at him. Recently his friends had started settling down and although he could see how good it was for them, and he enjoyed spending time with their families, he still couldn't see it happening for him. But then when he would look at Jenna, who was so different from the groupies he was used to, he wondered. Jenna hates keeping secrets and right now she is keeping a few, but she knows hoe loving and protective her friends are and worry that they might overreact. So she keeps things to herself. It's difficult not to let anything slip when Jimmy is around, she wants to snuggle up and tell him all and at the same time run as hard as she can in the opposite direction. A good man, a good friend, but a poor prospect and a player. No, she has handled things one her own before, she can handle things on her own now too.  When Jenna was threatened in public by a 'ghost' from her past, all three band members circled around to protect her, but to everyone's surprise, Jimmy took it a step further and whisked her away. He has come to believe that perhaps he can make better choices, different choices, and he envisions Jenna by his side. Not having the best track record, it will take a hell of a lot of convincing for Jenna to take a chance on him. But he is not going anywhere but forward, despite the fact that his past won't let him go. Nobody really believed he could do it, that he could change, even Jenna although never doubting his good intentions, wasn't sure he had it in him. But she becomes his biggest advocate when he needs it most, she just doesn't know if it is too late..... ****** ADORE!!! Sweet, bad, naughty, sensitive, bad boy Jimmy!!!! What a treat he is......and what a frustration. I pulled on my hair quite a bit AND had to put down the book a few times to cool down, it was like dealing with one of my sons!!! So loveable and yet so dang clueless!!! But Jimmy is so willing, so eager to do and be better. He doesn't realize that so far all he has done is live up to his own far too low standards. No one else put those expectations there but him. Lack of communication is one of the biggest downfalls in most relationships, and although Jimmy generally doesn't have a problem communicating, he fails to communicate some pretty important bits of information. He rallies well though, has good friends who will listen when he needs it and who end up standing by him vigilantly. His growth is immense and completely disarming. Jenna is pretty much on the opposite end of the scale from Jimmy in many ways. She is a private person, in part by character and part by necessity to avoid having a rough history catch up with her. Inevitably when it does, she learns that hiding does not make things go away, it simply postpones. Bit by bit she opens up, learning to trust the friendship and love she sees and feels from her friends. Starting off as one who needed protecting, she ends up being the protector. A huge character development for her as well.  Heidi McLaughlin has done an amazing job with the structure of this story, something quite fresh I think. The way the story is set up, with occasional little snippets of flashbacks, we have two points of view, both from Jimmy and Jenna. We are fed small bits of pertinent information at a time, but initially are never quite told out loud who it is that they are referring to, or what exactly they are referring to. But  with every puzzle piece the full scope of the story unfolds and we hold all the information. Trust me, you don't have to wait too long into the book to get to this point, but it was such an interesting way of pulling the story together without needing to go into long narratives. I loved it!! Just unbelievable writing, I loved both previous books, I absolutely ADORE this one, I'm not kidding!! The unique structure, the compelling storyline, the fallibility of the characters and the great writing style made this the complete book for me. Well done, Heidi!!! ¿A potent, touching and brilliantly vivid transformative tale!¿ ***ARC provided in return for an honest review.***

OMG!  Jimmy and Jenna's story played on every emotion.  I don't usually cry while reading a book, but It was 2:00 am and I was in tears. I made myself stop reading, but the first thing I did when I woke up was start to read. Again family proved to be important. That makes the Beaumont series so special. I love them all.

This series just keeps getting better and better. I loved Jimmy. His personality shines. I got pissed at him a few times, but dayum...way to rip my heart out Heidi. Love, love, love this book!!! Read it, people! It will be a lot better if you read Forever My Girl and My Unexpected Forever first. Read them all, people! I need a 4225 West fangirl shirt. ;)

WOW!!!! 5 Amazing Jimmylicious Stars!!! Miss Heidi you have done it again with your amazing story telling skills. I was hooked from the beginning and just could not put it down. I love this series and to me this might be the best one yet. Jimmy and Jenna’s story is such a beautiful one with many twists and turns. My emotions were all over the place. Crying, yelling and screaming. I wanted to physically hurt several people. I can’t wait for the next installment of this series. This is a must have for your library, nook or kindle.

5 Huge Stars!!! Heidi McLaughlin has done it again. She introduced me to the world of Beaumont and 4225 West in Forever My Girl, captivated me again in My Unexpected Forever, and in Finding My Forever made it so I never want to leave. I loved Jimmy and all this Jimmy-ness. He is sweet, funny, caring, sexy as all hell and has an accent (can't go wrong with that). This book made me laugh, made me cry, made me want to smack someone, made me FEEL, which is why I read in the first place. You can't go wrong with this book, I would (and have) recommended it to many friends. I love the emotion that comes from Heidi McLaughlin's writing and am in awe of her talent.

The Beaumont Series is the absolute best.  You won't want to miss this book.  Jimmy is a member of the band.  His friends are settling down with wives and kids which is the farthest thing from his mind.  He's a rock star and can get any woman he wants.  He had a relationship once and doesn't want another one.  Then he spends a night with Jenna and everything changes for him.  They both have issues in their pasts that come back to haunt them.  Can he convince her that he can change?  That she's his forever! Or, will their pasts destroy their future?

I really liked the first two books in this series. This one was OK but seemed a little "forced". They were the only male and female left, so somehow the author had to get them together. Just didn't feel like a natural fit. Also, how did the main female character intend to not tell who the father of her baby was? Very unbelievable and stupid story line. All in all not a bad book but it was just not my favorite. Also, if she put "arse" in the book one more time, I was ready to scream.

I really enjoyed this book. There were some gaps in the storyline and abrupt emotional changes, but, like the other two it was well written, witty and a great read. I hope to see more from this author.

Finding My Forever! I adored this book, Heidi McLaughlin is a wonderful author who makes her stories come alive. Each book in this series can be read as a stand alone, but I highly recommend you read each one. Beautiful work!

Got very tired of Jenna, and the plot was so cliched and predictable I had to stop reading. I must have read a different book from the other reviewers. It wasn't emotional so much as full of roll your eyes drama.

this series is really good, specially a good tear jerkier, nice portraying of the characters i would only do less musing of the characters and more story, instead of alluding to past stuff made start at the beginning be lest frustrating about whats going on. definitely read the first two or you wont get anything going on.
