The decision that tore them apart...
Former hopeless romantic, Mia Trent, is crushed when the love of her life, Nate McArthur, reveals that he doesn’t want to get married—or have children. But it’s too late. Mia is already pregnant and her dream of “happily ever after” is sharply put to an end when she decides to keep her pregnancy a secret, refusing to force him into a life he doesn’t want.
The compromise that made them a family...
Five years later, Mia must reach out to Nate for help or risk losing her home and shelter for their son. Stunned and outraged by the sudden news of his child, Nate proposes a compromise: give him the summer to get to know his son and he’ll save her home. Yet with Mia back in his life, Nate isn't willing to lose her—or their son—again. What starts off as a temporary arrangement soon becomes a chance at rediscovery and becoming a family. Only Nate must convince his jaded dreamer that his love for her is true…and will last now and forever.



As she rinsed the last dish, Mia jumped when strong arms suddenly wrapped around her middle.
“Sorry,” Nate whispered into her ear. “I didn’t mean to scare you. I thought you heard me.”
She turned off the running water and leaned against him. “No, I was lost in my head. What did you say?”
Nate leaned down and kissed her on the back of her neck. Mia shivered. No matter where or how many, his kiss always left her lightheaded.
“I asked what’s for dessert,” he repeated, kissing her again.
Mia turned in his arms, laughing. “That’s so cliché, you know.”
“What do you mean?” he asked with mock disbelief.
She rolled her eyes. “Oh, please. You say ‘what’s for dessert’ then I say something ordinary and then you say something cheesy like wanting me for dessert.”
He looked down at her, thoughtful. “Hmm, that does sound like something I’d say. But this hungry man could actually still eat.”
“Oh,” Mia said, a little embarrassed by her rash assumption. He was serious. Nate wasn’t a small guy and could honestly still be hungry. “Well…” she began lamely, “I don’t have anything else to feed you.”
Nate’s eyes sparkled. “Yeah, you do,” he whispered. He placed his hands on the counter to either side of her, trapping her between his solid frame and the sink. “I said I could still eat.”
Mia paused, confused. Then she laughed, recognizing the heated suggestion in his eyes. “You’re bad,” she murmured, shoving at his hard chest.
He leaned in closer, his lips only a breath away from hers. “And you like it.”

4 stars!

I am really happy I read this book. Honestly, I'm pleasantly surprised.
Because this is forever, is the third novel in a series but can be read as a stand-alone.

The story goes around Mia and Nate, and starts with a little background and a few chapters where they were initially dating and when she finds out she is pregnant.

I must admit that I found one thing a little cheesy, especially, taking Mia's mom story into account. I'm talking about the fact that at 24, Mia was a virgin and got pregnant on her first sexual encounter.

Besides that, I only have good things to say about this story. After those few chapters, the story goes forward to the moment when little Mikey is 5 years old. Mia finds herself in a difficult financial situation and as a last resource, she decides to contact Nate. (who doesn's know he is a father)

The way he takes the news, the relationship with his son from the very first moment, it's brilliant.

“I could tell from the beginning, just by the way you talked about him,” her mother said. “And I was really hoping you wouldn‟t get hurt, but men will be men, and you can‟t love a man more than he loves you. He has to love you more, Mia, or else you end up with your heart broken.”
Tears began to flow down her cheeks. That‟s where Mia had made her mistake. She had loved him so much and had fooled herself into thinking he felt the same way.

Cover: gorgeous

Character developent: very good. This is one of those books where I relate to all the characters. I could't take sides. Both of them have valid reason for their actions and the situation is utterly realistic. 

Writing: I loved the writing style. Lena makes it simple without being dull or ordinary. Suddenly I realized I was almost at half of the book and it took me just a few hour to finish it! 

Plot: interesting and beyond sweet. 

This is how I imagine Mia and Nate!

Would I recommend it? Yes. 
To whom? to any person that enjoys fast paced love stories.
