Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Series Conclusion! I can not sing my praises of Author Brenda Rothert loud enough! Now and Then (Book 1) brought us Cole and Ema. We enjoyed their hot chemistry and sweet romance that took more than a decade to come to light. Now and Again (Book 2) dived into the story of Ben and Layla. Two different personalities collided and gave us dominance and passion. Now and Forever has taken the stories of these two couples and given them the forever that they all deserve. ~No major spoilers, but read with caution~ -Cole is faced with an accusation in this installment that has him in fear of losing his career and his ability to be all that he wants to be to Emma. He knows for certain that she is his happily ever after and just needs to convince her that current events are not what is pushing him to make her his forever. -Emma knows, and probably always has known that Cole is the kind of man she has always wanted. She struggles with taking the leap because she wants to be sure that Cole wants a forever with her for all the right reasons. With the future success of the bakery in question, working long hours, and Cole's current situation, Emma is uncertain of what her future holds. -Ben continues to be the dominate alpha male in this book. Layla is what he wants and is determined to have her whether they agree or disagree about how they will deal with their future together. He decides that they will take a step back with their physical relationship in order to strengthen their bond which leaves them both frustrated in more ways than one. -Layla remains as head strong as ever. She values her career as an attorney and feels that Ben doesn't fully understand what it means to her and have pride in all that she does. She questions whether or not they can make their relationship work when they have such varying views on what their future will look like. She doesn't want to lose Ben, but she also refuses to lose herself. Brenda intertwined the stories of both of these couples beautifully and gave us the happily ever after they both deserved. This installment is told in multiple POV's. We were able to experience what each person was thinking and feeling. She writes her characters realistically with every day issues and brings them to a resolution that the reader can relate to. She has a smooth style that makes for easy reading. With this series, she gave us love, passion, suspense, uncertainty, lust and pure happiness. I will miss these couples, but I am happy with the conclusion we were given and know that both couples will have the future they were meant to have. I highly recommend this series! Begin with book one - Now and Then. I promise you will enjoy the journey!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from an intriguing end to the series Rothert does a great deal of jumping back and forth between the two storylines. Both of the stories stay straight and separate without detracting from each other, but there’s a whole lot going on. This is one of those cases where the book really could have been split into 2 stories giving the reader a much more in-depth taste of each couple’s trials. That said, the story is presented in a well written, approachable style that is easy to immerse yourself in. Rothert tells the story of a pair of real life, real world romances in a way that allows you to feel for and connect with the characters I’ve got to say, however. I wanted to beat Em with a pillow a few times in this one. She acts like a spoiled baby too often. She may be the youngest character in the book, but seriously… And all 4 of the main characters had the same basic outlook. It was a case of ‘I’m right, I’m right, I’m right. Fine, I’m wrong.’ Overall, this was a quick, enjoyable read. I’d definitely suggest reading the first two novels in the series first so that you know what’s going on.
