A SINGLE BASKETBALL GAME CHANGES EVERYTHING...

When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later, Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on TV—at a school which has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly, he can’t wait to get there.

Cax can’t believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he’s still just as drawn to Axel as ever. But he can’t let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.

Hello Forever is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Readers of Goodbye Paradise will get to check in on Caleb and Josh and their clan.

Review:

Hello Forever can absolutely be read as a standalone. While we do get a bit of Caleb and Josh from Goodbye Paradise, it really do not take anything away from Axel and Caxton’s story and you will not feel like you have missed anything. Hello Forever is pretty much just their story with a sprinkle of Caleb and Josh in there for fun.

Axel and Caxton both faced their feelings when they were young at a church camp but once they got caught, Caxton was ripped out of Axel’s life. Now, years later after college, Axel is recruited to join the marketing team for the athletic department at a small college. Where Caxton just happens to be.

It’s clear from the moment Axel and Caxton see each other again that they have a serious connection that can’t be ignored. However, Caxton has some complications in his life so he hasn’t really faced his feelings for Axel or for anyone else in the matter.

This book does provide a part of the story that unfortunately still exist today. Everyone should be able to love anyone and there should never be any barriers. Yet Axel and Caxton still has to face that. Isn’t this where we all quote Lin Manuel Miranda and say “Love is love is love is love?”

I really enjoyed this book. I liked that Axel knows who he is and what he wants in life and isn’t afraid to go after it. He also has a gentle soul and a huge heart, just like Caxton. They are perfect for each other and at the end of the day, all you want is happiness for them. If you like M/M romances, you’ll want to check this out!
