Book Blitz #review: Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen



When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later, Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on TV—at a school which has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly, he can’t wait to get there.

Cax can’t believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he’s still just as drawn to Axel as ever. But he can’t let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.

Hello Forever is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Readers of Goodbye Paradise will get to check in on Caleb and Josh and their clan.

You truly can not go wrong with anything that Sarina Bowen writes, but her M/M books are becoming favorites of mine.

Hello Forever is heart wrenching at times, sweet, intense, and so full of love and understanding. Axel has always been open with his sexuality and his mom accepts him just the way he is and is very supportive. Poor Cax on the other hand has had a rough road. His parents weren't as understanding as Axel's mom, immediately moving him away after they found him kissing Axel when they were just kids. Cax's father is a heartless man who would use anything he can to keep Cax on the straight and narrow, and up until this point Cax been compliant. But once Axel comes back into his life, will he breaks the rules and sacrifice what's most important to him for a little happiness or is his relationship with Axel doomed from the beginning?

The love between these two characters has a touch of purity throughout it all. It felt so real, so sincere, that as a reader I was rooting for them from the very beginning. 

I love that the author always makes it a point to have acceptance of who the characters are and their beliefs. My heart truly broke for Cax more than once, for the life of me I will never understand how family members, especially parents, can be so cruel and neglect their kids of the love they so much need and deserve. But unfortunately, it happens more than we can even imagine. But for every person that rejects us there are always one of two who accept us for who we are and love us just the same.

If you like the M/M genre, this is a MUST read book. The author never disappoints and her storytelling always leaves you with a heart full of love and hope.
