How Forever Feels is the fourth installment in the Friends First series. Prior to reading this book I had not read the other three books in this series, but I found that How Forever Feels could be read as a stand alone book anyway. Much of the history pertaining to the other characters who crop up repeatedly in this book gets explained, making it easy for the reader to grasp their relevance and understand their stories.
Maya McKay was married to Jack Rhodes’s best friend, Will, but they are now divorced after Will cheated on her. Jack and Maya were always good friends but Maya hasn’t seen him since her divorce. That all changes one evening when she is in a bar with her friends and she sees Jack standing at the bar. They exchange pleasantries and Maya finds his return has invoked certain feelings for Jack within her.
Jack has always had feelings for Maya but he didn’t act on them years earlier because his friend Will had his eye on her. Jack owes Will and his family a huge debt, they rescued him from terrible circumstances when he was a teenager and now he feels he could never betray them. The trouble is, the chemistry between Maya and him is smoking hot and it’s only a matter of time before they give in to it.
Can Maya and Jack overcome the feelings of guilt that they have about their attraction to one another?
A book that lovers of this genre will want to read. The characters are strong and often feisty, which I think makes for an excellent story. The writer weaves the story in such a way that the reader cannot help but be invested in what happens to Maya and Jack.
Lovely read. Recommended. 5 stars *****
