Finding Forever (Forever Series 3 - Roger & Lily)
"Be my fake boyfriend for ten minutes, please." Those eight words haunt me. I was at a buddy's bar to watch a concert. Pretending to be a boyfriend wasn't part of my plans, but she was scared. I dropped my arm over her shoulder and played the part of the doting boyfriend. I should have made sure she got home safely by calling her a cab or rideshare. But after an unexpected night laughing more than I had in months, I couldn't say no when she asked if I wanted company in my hotel room.
When I realized the next morning that she wasn't twenty-one, I bailed. I regret it. But what am I supposed to do? I only know her first name and where she goes to college. College! She's in college. I'm over thirty and the only person who has ever made me think I'd want more than a night or two isn't old enough to buy a beer.
I've never understood why age differences matter as long as you're both consenting adults. Roger and I had fun and the chemistry was off the charts. Why does it matter that I'm not twenty-one and I'm still in college? All I know about him is his first name, he lives a couple of hours away, he's friends with the owner of the bar we were at, and he has some impressive ink work. I also overheard him telling the bartender that he could squeeze him in for a cover-up next week. Roger may not have told me he's a tattoo artist, but I paid attention and figured it out. Now, I just have to find him and prove to him that age is just a number. He's going to marry me. He just doesn't know it yet.
The Forever Series is a small-town, second-chance romance series featuring standalone novellas. Each novella tells one couple's story and while they are numbered for timeline order, they can be read in any order and contain each couple's complete story. Characters are recurring across the series and you will see them in each other's books which is why the series is numbered for timeline. Each story answers one of these questions and tells us what happens when you get a second chance at forever.
