****4 Now and Forever Stars****



Now and Forever is the final conclusion of the Now Series. It is highly recommended that you must read this series in order.  This third installment chronicles Layla and Emma Carson as their relationships as sisters and their respective partners are tested. Can the Carson sisters finally get their Now and Forever? Or is the fairytale ending only possible for one sister?



Emma and Cole are finally on the right track. Emma has finally fulfilled her dreams of opening her pastry shop and Cole is a successful attorney. Miss independent Layla finally found someone who can stand up to her in Ben. Both Ben and Layla compliment each other.  So it seems this foursome are on the way of a HEA… Well appearances can be deceiving.


Well for Emma an unplanned pregnancy and Cole’s legal troubles at work, puts this happy couple in a financial dilemma. And when Cole proposes to her, Emma rejects him. She worries that Cole is asking her hand in marriage out of obligation for their baby or is it because he wants to marry her. As for Layla, her career is finally taking off and she found peace and happiness with Ben. When Ben proposed to her, Layla couldn’t wait to settle down with him. But Layla’s happy bubble is interrupted when she finds out Ben and her wants different things when it comes to raising their future kids.  Layla is engaged. Emma is pregnant. Shouldn’t the Carson sisters be on cloud nine? Luckily for Layla and Emma, their relationship problems didn’t interfere with their sibling relationship. It seems that Carson sisters are finally mending their relationship. Will the sisters finally get their HEA?


Can I say that I’m sad to say goodbye to Layla and Ben.. They were indeed my favorite couple of the Now series!! As much as I like Emma and Cole, Ben and Layla’s chemistry was just a tad bit more passionate than Emma and Cole. They had this magnetic pull that I felt was much stronger than Em and Cole. Yes, I think Em and Cole are perfect for each other but in Now and Forever  felt more driven with Layla and Ben’s storyline. I found myself wanting more Layla and Ben scenes. Needless to say, Em and Cole relationship showed how strong indeed their love was especially with all financial, legal troubles, and pregnancy.  Overall, I thought Brenda did an excellent job in showcasing multiple POVs between the four main characters. She was able to combine two couples into one story-line that flowed naturally.  Ms. Rothert- can you please bring back Layla and Ben and make another story with this couple? I absolutely love and adore them.
