BLOG TOUR!! Forever by Karen Ann Hopkins

Forever (Temptation #3)
Released: 28 January 2014
Genre: Romance
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN (US)
Buy Me: Amazon  |  Barnes & Noble
At the Other End:
All I want is my happily-ever-after.
That's all I've wanted since meeting Noah Miller.

From the day we met, the world has tried to keep Noah and me from being together, but now that I'm carrying his child, no one will be able to tear us apart. Or so I hope. But Noah and I have made some mistakes along the way, and the consequences are impacting the people we love. Worse, there's a storm on the horizon, and it's sure to cause serious devastation.

If we can get through this, we'll finally be Rose and Noah; a family, forever.

But first we have to survive the road ahead. And happily-ever-after is a long way off

Author Bio:
A native of New York State, Karen Ann Hopkins now lives with her family on a farm in northern Kentucky, where her neighbors in all directions are members of a strict Amish community. Her unique perspective became the inspiration for the story of star-crossed lovers Rose and Noah. When she’s not homeschooling her kids, giving riding lessons or tending to a menagerie of horses, goats, peacocks, chickens, ducks, rabbits, dogs and cats, she is dreaming up her next romantic novel.

Sum Up:
The conclusion to the Temptation trilogy, is just as heart warming and completely full of drama as the previous books! With a happily-ever-after and moment where you cry and gasp in shock and awe, this is the perfect finale to this intriguing romance trilogy.

Behind the 336 Pages
A perfect ending, to a fantastic heart-melting series. From book 1 all the way through to book 3, we are cheering for Rose and Noah! We laugh, we cry and we scream at everything that happens to try and pull these two away from each other.

Forever starts off where Belonging finishes. We know what Noah is going through, with the conflict between another family, and then Rose with her scary news (not spoiling anything!!). But these things plague both Rose and Noah in the beginning, and how they go about it annoys me. With Noah's situation, he makes the decision, and he doesn't leave any room for Rose to say anything, but to agree. If she doesn't agree then it will stuff up his plans . Then with Rose, because of the plans that Noah makes, she doesn't want to tell him what is happening to her, and is scared of what would happen if she does. Where is the strong Rose that I know and love? She debates half the time on telling him, that it gets me really annoyed, because there are so many people who do know. I also got annoyed, because it was like Rose had to give up everything, and Noah doesn't. She has given up so much already, and he won't even think of sacrificing something for her (it's ok though, because it does turn around in the end)

What I also didn't like was the way that Constance's family (including Constance, excluding Micah) was acting. I was frustrating that they were acting like a jealous English family, and that the community didn't see how they were acting, because they were too caught up in the words that they twisted and the money they threw in their face.

After the beginning, this book had me all love love love! I love having Sarah's POV, and her blooming relationship with Micah. I was cheering for them all the way, and then the unthinkable happened. I cried!! I couldn't believe what happened to Sarah, and it left me so emotionless for a few chapters in the book, because I love her character, and her personality.

As the story continues, it gets better and better. We see the Rose and Noah that we know and love from the previous books, and they have just as many struggles as before to conquer. I don't want to give away anything, because it is the last book, but you can see them changing and the fight to be with each other becomes really intense and you know that they are going to pull through. 

After everything that happens, we get the perfect ending! Yes, there could be a spin off series to come, from the way the ending played out. I really wish that there was, and I am curious to have one about Miranda (Noah's sister). Even though she isn't one of my favorite characters (I don't even like her that much anyway, and after the ending I kind of hated her), what she does in the ending would make for a really intriguing spin off story. I might even come to like her.....maybe... but that is if there was a spin off story.

There really isn't much else to say about this book without spoiling it for you all, and because it is the last book, it is really something that should be experienced for yourself!

NOTE. Forever will not be coming out in paperback in Australia. It will only be available in eBook format. :(

What's Next:
Temptation (Temptation #1)
Behind 383 Pages
Released: 26 June 2012
Genre: Romance
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN (US)
At the Other End: 
Your heart misleads you.
That's what my friends and family say.
But I love Noah. And he loves me.

We met and fell in love in the sleepy farming community of Meadowview, while we rode our horses together through the grassy fields and in those moments in each other's arms.

It should be  ROSE & NOAH  forever, easy.
But it won't be.
Because he's Amish.

And I'm not

Belonging (Temptation #2)
Behind 408 Pages
Released: 30 April 2013
Genre: Romance
Publisher: Harlequin TEEN (US)
At the Other End:
I left everything I knew behind. 
But it was worth it. He was worth it. 

No one thought an ordinary girl like me would last two minutes living with the Amish, not even me. There are a lot more rules and a lot less freedom, and I miss my family and the life I once had. Worst of all, Noah and I aren't even allowed to see each other. Not until I've proven myself. 

If I can find a way to make it work, we'll be NOAH & ROSE, together forever. 

But not everybody believes this is where I belong.
