Forever (Time for Love Series #1) by Miranda P. Charles

Rebecca Andrews knows she is lucky to be hired as a private nurse for an elderly lady who is going on a one-month trip aboard a luxury cruise ship. But there's one big problem. The client is the grandmother of her ex-boyfriend--the guy she is still in love with but doesn't love her back.

Zach Carmichael can't say no to his grandmother's plea to join her on a month-long cruise for her eightieth birthday. But he doesn't expect his spritely gran to bring two private nurses with her. One of them happens to be the woman who broke his heart--the one he believes lied to him about her feelings.

Aboard a luxury liner, their passion for each other flares again. Is it just a temporary flame brought about by the romance of being on a cruise? How can they give love another chance when they're both afraid to put their hearts back on the line?


Each book in the Time for Love series is a strong stand-alone novel that would give you enjoyment on its own. To fully enjoy the series, however, the author recommends reading them in order.

Book 1: Forever (Rebecca Andrews and Zach Carmichael)
Book 2: Finally (Sarah Daley and Jeff Carmichael)
Book 3: Again (Amanda Payne and Connor Reid)
Book 4: Always (Brenna Ward and Ash Payne)
Book 5: At Last (Gemma Aldwyn and Greg Carmichael)

About the Author

From my early teens, I have already loved reading romance novels. My auntie used to send me boxes of her books and I would devour them one after another. Every so often, I would read a mystery or a suspense or a paranormal novel as I love those genres too. But romance is still my favourite. :)

For many years, I wrote technical and non-fiction materials for professional use and had only dreamt about writing a novel. Then, one day, after a period of binge-reading sexy romances, I decided to sit in front of my computer and start writing my first fiction book.

The result? My debut novel, "Will To Love", the first in the hot and sexy Lifestyle by Design series.
After that, I knew that I would love to tell more beautiful love stories through my books.

I live in Sydney, Australia with my amazing husband who lovingly cheers me on in my journey as a writer.

Once again, an amazing escape full of passion, romance, off the charts sex and humor. Trapped on a cruise ship with nowhere to hide. Grandma is celebrating her 80th birthday in style and has managed to get Zach (eldest grandson) on the ship for 4 weeks with Rebecca (private nurse, former girlfriend) … how do you stay away from the love that got away when Grandma keeps putting her/him in your path?  Miranda Charles consistently delivers wonderful contemporary romances with relatable characters. Zach and Rebecca had a great relationship until Zach couldn't admit his feelings. Now forced back together in an unusual situation, will the sparks reignite? Of course, misunderstandings abound as with all relationships, can forgiveness be found?

Rebecca is a private nurse who is hired by her ex boyfriend's grandmother to go on a month long cruise. Zach is very rich and decides to go with his grandmother on the cruise. While there, they get back together, break up, back together, and take a break and back together. Lots of ridiculous misunderstandings and nosy, trouble making ex bed partner and a jealous family friend.

Honest review: Rebecca was a nurse for Magda Carmichael during her surgery. During this time, she fell in love with Magda's oldest grandson, Zach. She thought it was mutual and told him. But soon found out, it wasn't and was crushed. Zach did not try to convince Bec that he wanted her back as he thought she was using him for his money and was two timing him. She left and went about her life for months only to be re-hired by Magda to go on a cruise as a nurse with Magda again, believing that Zach would not be going. Zach was going on the cruise with no idea that Bec was going as a nurse. As always, Miranda has us going round and round with the he said she said and the truth that no one heard or bother to ask about until till it was too late. And we all love it. This cruise is 4 weeks long and it is very taxing on ALL members in this larger than life party. It is Magda's 80 birthday party after all. Zach will be joined by both his younger brothers who both believe he was wronged as well. Between all the friends for the party and outside sources these two are doomed before they step on the ship. But Magda will not let that happen. What a wonderful book as always by Miranda. I can't wait for the next one.

I couldn't put it down. 147 pages of a good romance. A bit too much sex, not really needed for the story to be enjoyed. Will read more by this writer. Wish it hadn't ended quite as abruptly and had an epilogue. GJRA

***Received from Tasty Book Tours for an honest review*** "I love you." It takes a fair amount of bravery to announce your sentiment for someone else because these three words can either scare the receiver to death or compel them to say the same. The hope is the feelings are mutual and you will hear "I love you" in return. But the flip-side is, it doesn't always happen that way. Rebecca's declaration of love left Zach speechless enough for her to believe he didn't feel the same. It took seven months of separation for him to realize he did feel the same and it took just as long for him to say it. The problem: their relationship was non-existent and might be irreparable at that point. There are plenty of highs and lows in this story as Zach and Rebecca try to move on--with or without each other--after meeting again after so many months apart. They circled round and round with their emotions and hearts carefully guarded until they reached a place where they were fairly open with one another. Well, more open than before. Still, secrets lay between them and happiness, secrets that eventually came to light and not in the most tactful way possible. Perhaps the tactless revelation could have been avoided if Zach had been more honest with Rebecca. I mean, he knew her secret (which wasn't a secret at all) and still he chose to hide things from her? *tsk* I wanted to slap him for his reluctance. I enjoyed this story. It moved a little quick for me, and there were moments when I thought emotions were lacking, but I liked watching Zach and Rebecca work through their issues. Ms. Charles wrote a very sweet love story that not only shows a couple falling in love again but is a good opening to her "Time for Love" series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars Forever by Miranda P. Charles is the first book in her Time For Love series and focuses on Rebecca Andrews and Zach Carmichael. Rebecca takes a job as a private nurse for the elderly Mrs. Carmichael. The job entails accompanying Mrs Carmichael on a month long cruise to celebrate her eightieth birthday. The wonderful Mrs. Carmichael is also grandmother to Rebecca's ex that she is still not over, but as he is a workaholic she believes she's in the clear. There's no way he'll take a whole month off for a cruise, right? Wrong. He dotes on his grandmother and when she asks him to accompany her he can't say no. Now faced with a month together in close quarters the reasons behind their break up resurface. He thinks she lied to him, she believes he never really cared. Even after he realized how he felt, his close friends and family (NOT grandma) convinced him she was a gold-digger so he never went after her. Oh how painful these misunderstandings can be for a reader, when all you want to do is just knock their heads together and demand they figure it out, tout suite. With a happily ever after ending, you intuitively know they'll get there but the journey of angst and misdirection is the fun part. I am excited to read more from this author in the future.

Rebecca wants to go on the cruise with one of her elderly clients to help her out but she isn't looking forward to seeing the man who broke her heart. Rebecca and Zach dated in secret months ago and now she will have to see him as he is the clients grandson. She decides it will do her god to get him out of her head so she agrees to go. Zach loved Rebecca but couldn't trust her enough tot tell her. He then hears stories about her and now he doesn't know whether to believe she did love him or if she is a gold digger. On the cruise they begin to work some things out but some people can't stop telling lies. Can they move past what others are saying, get to the bottom of the truth and learn to trust and love each other again. really liked this story as right away you see the bond Rebecca has with her friends and the pact they all made. She is a very caring person and would risk getting her heart broke again to help a client she loves. She gave her heart to Zach and he broke it months ago. She is afraid he will break her heart but she is willing to give him another chance. Zach is a hard working guy who loves his grandmother and cares for Rebecca. He has issues trusting and believing her. At times he pulls her to him then he is pushing her away. While I can understand why he would have those thoughts he did at times get on my nerves. I wanted him to quit listening to others and open his eyes. It was nice to see him get jealous a few times. The story has several very hot scenes and I enjoyed most of the characters except Phillip he just gave me the creeps. I look forward to reading more about Sarah and more books by this author.

I'm surprised by the other reviews since I couldn't even make myself finish reading this book, but maybe it just wasn't my style. Rebecca and Zach were broken up, then got on a cruise and proceeded to break up and get back together 5 times during about 3 weeks on the boat. I ended up skimming 3/4 of the book and didn't miss anything. The two main characters were just ridiculous. It felt like something you'd get from two high school kids, not grown adults. 2 stars for the fact that I did skim the book...
