Holding Onto Forever by Heidi McLaughlin

The road for Noah Westbury has been carved out for him, long before he knew who his father was. Making sure he worked hard to deserve the opportunities provided to him, Noah is where he's dreamed of being - starting QB for Portland Pioneers. Together, with his model girlfriend by his side, life can't get much better. Except that standing in his path is Peyton Powell-James, his life-long friend and the one woman he can never have.

Peyton Powell-James always knew her future would be in football and dreams of having a successful sports journalism career once she graduates college. After being given the assignment to cover a professional game from the sidelines, Peyton believes that everything is going to plan. Until one fateful night changes her life.

Harsh reality sets in for Noah and Peyton. One could lose everything, while the other struggles to keep the families together.

Truthfully, I read this book in a day because I needed to know what happened. Noah and Peyton have a beautiful story of love and willingness to be themselves and love unconditionally but sustain morals... must read and definitely the best book of all the Beaumont series!

This book made me cry but the journey was so good. Can't wait for the next one. I'm hoping Quinn gets a book too.

What happens when your best friend is in a life threatening car accident? Well, you get to that friend immediately. That is exactly what Noah did. He leaves his demanding girlfriend and his starting quarterback job to rush to the girl who has been his best friend forever. I saw how this would affect his life and couldn’t wait to see how he would handle it all. My favorite part of Holding Onto Forever was the family ties. Not only with blood family, but with friend family. The way they came together, supported, loved, and did what had to be done to get Peyton better, support Noah in his decisions, and help guide them with their choices. This is the way that friends and family should be when put in a difficult situation. I have not read the first Beaumont Series and I still enjoyed this one and am looking forward to more of the Next Generation series.

-dramatic, imaginative, encouraging HOLDING ONTO FOREVER is the first installment in Heidi McLaughlin’s The Beaumont Series spin off-The Next Generation. This is quarterback for the Portland Pioneers Noah Westbury (Liam and Josie’s son-Forever My Girl) and journalism major Peyton Powell-James’s (Katelyn, Harrison and Mason’s daughter-An Unexpected Forever) story line. HOLDING ONTO FOREVER can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty although I recommend reading the original BEAUMONT series for cohesion and backstory about the people of Beaumont and the rock band 4225 West. Told from dual first person perspectives (Noah and Peyton) HOLDING ONTO FOREVER picks up immediately upon (and crosses over with) the events of the author’s October 2017 novella FOREVER OUR BOYS wherein life will take an unexpected turn for our story line couple. Best friends since childhood Noah and Peyton have danced around their attraction to one another for several years but Noah’s professional football career (and their two year age difference) placed him directly in the path of unwanted attention and a myriad of women vying for his money and love. Peyton’s latest journalism assignment finds our heroine front and center with the Chicago Bears of the NFL, and their star quarterback Kyle Zimmerman when a near fatal tragedy will bring together the Beaumont clan and the members of the rock band 4225 West. Noah Westbury will struggle with the potentially life changing circumstances for his best friend, while Peyton fights the battle of her life. What ensues is the friends to lovers relationship that is threatened when sins of the past come looking for a second chance. The relationship between Noah and Peyton is a friends to lovers romance wherein Noah must decide with whom his heart belongs. Peyton struggles with her attraction to the man she has loved all of her life, a love that may not be given in return. The $ex scenes are limited; the romance is passionate and heartbreaking. HOLDING ONTO FOREVER looks at memories, introspection, flashbacks to the past, and the otherworldly presence of one woman struggling with the here and now. I am being purposely vague such that to give any more clues would reveal the heartbreaking and emotional concept of the story line premise. The world building brings together most, if not all, of the BEAUMONT series characters and couples giving the spin off a sense of familiarity and love. HOLDING ONTO FOREVER is a story about friendship and family; love and understanding; healing and letting go. The premise is dramatic, imaginative and encouraging; the characters are emotional and spirited; the romance is subtle and passionate. HOLDING ONTO FOREVER re-introduces the next generation- the progeny of the rock back 4225 West with a captivating look at two treasured and cherished characters we have grown to love.

Since I first read the Beaumont series four years ago, I desperately wanted Peyton and Noah’s story to be told. I can honestly say, this is hands down my favorite book of Heidi’s, and one of her best works to date. I can’t even put into words just how phenomenal this story was. Holding Onto Forever is one of my top reads this year, and I can’t wait for who’s love story we get next.

Tears, smiles, laughs, sobs....I experienced it all in this book, in no particular order ;) I loved reading about Liam and Josie, Harrison and Katelyn, and Jimmy and Jenna but to read about their kids all grown up is extra special. Noah and Peyton have always had a one of a kind relationship that was carried through all the books and in this book I really learned so much more about what was going on with them growing up and especially now as adults. I loved it! Noah has turned into a great young man and Peyton is definitely a survivor! Now what's Elle been up to? Reviewed by: Alexis B.
