If Forever Comes (Take This Regret #2)
by A.L. Jackson

If Forever Comes, the final chapter in the New York Times Bestselling series, Take This Regret.

Christian Davison’s life is complete. With a ring on Elizabeth’s finger and his daughter at his side, he’s ready to run headlong into their future.

Elizabeth Ayers never believed she would again find this kind of joy—the joy of a family and the wholeness found in the touch of the man she’s always loved.

Their love is intense and their passion only grows as they set out to rediscover each other.

But life is never easy.

Rocked by the unforeseen, Christian and Elizabeth will find themselves fighting for the one thing they hold most important—family.


Heather’s Thoughts:

If you read book one, you are going to want to read book two. This series is gut wrenching and heart breaking. A.L. Jackson writes angst and pain like no one else. I felt like it was happening to me. This book delves into some very heavy topics. For those of you who have dealt with a significant loss like this one, this book may be too much. For me, it was heart- breaking but worth it in the end. Sometimes you have to go through the fires of hell to get to your heaven.

Book one ended with Elizabeth and Christian working things out. They have been to hell and back together and they feel like their struggles are finally behind them. This should be the best time of their lives…right?

Elizabeth and Christian are going to get married. Christian is beyond happy to have the love of his life back. He has the family he always dreamed of. He can’t wait to give Lizzy a brother or sister. So when they find out they are expecting, they are both ecstatic. Christian gets to experience the pregnancy and he discovers everything he missed the first time around.

Days away from their wedding, tragedy strikes.

Elizabeth finds herself unable to cope. She falls further and further into a dark hole.

She has no idea what to do or where to turn. All of her life was laid out before her and now she has no idea how to move forward. She is a wreck and she is angry.

As she pushes everyone away, she begins to do things that don’t make sense. She hurts those who mean the most to her.She becomes someone that she doesn’t recognize. Her family and friends rally around her and try to help her but she is struggling. She has pushed Christian to the breaking point.

Christian decides to fight for what is his. He wants his family back.

I don’t want to give too much away, but the epilogue…

Oh, it was WONDERFUL! Thank you, thank you for the epilogue. It made all the pain and angst worth it. This series just about wrecked me.

If you love a good emotional story with a HEA…this is an amazing one. We got to see both points of view which is really important in this series. Without it, we would be left wondering so much and the characters would be so much harder to understand. There is a lot of back story and inner dialogue that moves this story forward. This couple goes through some of the most difficult situations, and they survive. Their love endures and we get to see it all in its amazing glory.

5 Stars for me.



About Reading Haven

I am a thirty something wife and mother of two. I read in all of my free time. I can't remember the last time I chose to watch television. I would prefer reading or hanging out online24/7 but one must pay the bills, thus my day job. I like UF but lately have been exploring more erotica and adult romance novels. I love a good Alpha male and I am not afraid of the dark stuff. I like historical romance as well. Sometimes I go for the YA stuff. I'm a sap for a good love story. I prefer a HEA (insert unicorns, rainbows and kittens). Genres I will read: Contemporary Romance and some Historical Romance, Erotica, Urban Fantasy, Young Adult, and Paranormal Romance.
