Destiny Bay Romances - Forever Yours
(Sweet Edition #3)
by Helen Conrad
Adult Romance
Paperback & Ebook, 165 pages
March 28th 2014 by Doorknock Publishing

A sweet old-fashioned girl

isn’t what Grant Carrington is looking for. A man who lives for speed and danger, he’s only slowed down because he’s been forced to by an injury. Carrie Harlow isn’t his type, but he needs her in order to heal. She knows she’s playing with fire, but she feels she can help him and she goes for it—even though she knows she’s endangering her own heart as she fixes his.

Recipe for Carrie's Chicken Picatta included.

Purchase from Amazon.

My Review

By far Moving Too Fast was my favorite from this series! It had a dark and brooding bad boy for the male protagonist and a sweet and lovable female protagonist. There was plenty of romantic tension with just a few intense kisses, which to me makes them more meaningful and more climatic. I also liked that you could read this book, just like the others, on its own. The other characters from the first two books do make appearances, but the two MC's are center stage and the story is one that holds its own.

I liked that the story was mostly from Carrie's perspective with Grant's mixed in here and there. I liked her voice. I liked how she was a little apprehensive of Grant, but not afraid to challenge and push him. I loved that they were immediately attracted to each other and had to really put that off, but that they spent lots of time developing a friendship. Their friendship had the potential for so much more.

I'm curious to see what happens between Tag and Mickey (secondary characters in the first three books of this series) and if there will be more stories about the next generation of Carrington's, or which stories the author will be re-writing into cleaner and sweeter versions. Now I need to go try out the recipes at the back of these books. They make me hungry just thinking about them. :)

It's just really a quick and fun book. It was entertaining and definitely sweet. I'd recommend it to Adult Romance readers.

Content: Clean (There is some innuendo and one suggestive scene, but I would consider this clean for the genre.)

A Little About the Destiny Bay Romances: Sweet Editions
From Author Helen Conrad

"The Destiny Bay Romances take place in the sort of beach town I've always loved--and now I live in one! But writing about beach towns came first and this series is centered on the rich, influential Carrington family living along the California Coast, and in Hawaii. These are good-looking, fast-driving, hard-hitting men and women whose impulses lead them into trouble every time--and inevitably to fall in love.

The original series includes language and love scenes that aren't, for the most part, especially harsh and explicit--but some of my readers from my years writing sweets for Harlequin as Raye Morgan have asked if we couldn't have sweet and clean versions--and I thought--what a good idea! 

These are basically the same stories...but with the conflicts softened a bit, the language cleaned up, and no explicit love scenes. There are still a few adult situations, but they're muted. Consider these the PG versions. 

I hope you enjoy them!"

  10. It is interesting. Thanks for stopping by, as always, Natalie!

  11. I myself really like walking along the beach on the coast of Oregon. As far as a setting for a novel, almost anywhere will do as long as the setting is one that is appropriate to the overall theme of the story.
