REVIEWERS NOTE: Yours Forever is book third and final book in the Reign series and is an Adult, Romance written by Joya Ryan. I was gifted a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through InkSlinger PR.
4.5 “Yours Forever” Stars!
Sexy, Intense and Fun! Brimming with Tantalizing Tension and Salacious Steam, This Series Will Make Your Heart Race and the Butterflies Swarm!
In the first book, we saw the new, intensely commanding swift build of love forged in passion and lust as Jack and Lana found their other half in each other. For reasons we come to understand at the end of the book, Jack reluctantly leaves a brokenhearted Lana behind and a path of betrayal in his wake.
Ready to pick up the pieces, Cal steps up to the plate in book two and soon an easy, fun, brilliant, all consuming, slow build between Lana and Cal forms from trust and safety which molds into a beautiful love. But when lies and tragedy strike, we’re left with devastation yet again... but also hope.
In book three, Jack comes back to command what’s his and Cal refuses to leave what he has claimed. Two alpha males and one woman standing between their long standing friendship that’s more akin to brotherhood. Their story is an incendiary love with a constant danger lurking in the shadows ready to break them all.
I love LOVE this series. The first two books rated hands down, five whole stars. This was a new author to me, suggested by a friend and when I finished the first book, I was left wondering where this author had been all my life. I love her writing style. I loved this story and it’s characters. Her mains, though confronted with impossible situations, never wavered, never became weeping statues, nor did they break the rules of good character building. But they always pushed the boundaries of their situations and left me lusting for more. That all stemmed from this authors excellent writing. I was consumed by their outstanding story and the intelligent writing enhanced that experience.
Choose. Stay with Cal. Stay with Jack. Or leave them both.
Never at any point did I dislike the position the guys put Lana in or the feelings Lana had. She has an incredibly arduous choice to make. She’s tied to both men. One owns her soul and the other her heart. One lets her hide in the darkness where she thrives and one chases her into the light where she shines. Each man gives her something unique and vital, an unshakable net of safety and love.
But that safety and love is tested as Lana comes closer to making a choice and finding out the mystery surrounding the danger she keeps finding herself in.
The author does a wonderful job of gearing us up for the riveting and inevitable conclusion. Really, there was only one choice from the beginning and I totally loved the way things played out.
But... Without saying too much and give anything away, I wished we’d gotten more from the epilogue. It was sweet and tied everything up nicely but I think I needed just a touch more to see how our alpha males were coping.
The Wrap Up:
Though the ending was a bit predictable and I totally called the stalker situation as well as what the “choice” would ultimately be, it didn’t take away from the experience or the love I have for this series because from the beginning, there only seemed one way for this to all go down. And though it might have been a bit unconventional, the author did it brilliantly. And. I. Freaking. Loved. It!
Am I a fan? Yup! Will I come back for more of her work? Totally. Will I re-read this series again? Absolutely. Will I suggest this to all my friends? Hell yeah!
