A LGBT Romance
By Sarina Bowen
A basketball game changed both their lives.
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 was previously published as It’s Never Over. This is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Readers of Goodbye Paradise will get to check in on Caleb and Josh and their clan.
Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen is more than a LGBT romance, it’s a story of acceptance, self discovery, and steadfast love in a world that is less than perfect but more accepting. It’s a story of two exceptional human beings finding “the one” who completes their souls. It’s not about social issues or political issues, it’s purely about love.
Axel and Caxton met at church youth retreat when they were young boys. They became best friends through the years until their teenage hormones kicked in. They are both discovering that their long abiding friendship is turning into sexual desire for one another. Giving into those desires seems like the most natural thing to do next in their relationship until they are caught by one of the church pastors. From that point on their friendship is torn apart and both boys move on in separate directions in life.
Years later their paths cross once again in a different state. Both have become independent adults working towards their individual careers. Axel is openly gay and trying to figure out how he fits into his new environment. Caxton is hiding his sexuality for many valid reasons. The one thing that hasn’t changed is their connection to one another and their desire for each other. They are now adults who can choose their own destinies in life. The problem is that life isn’t always black and white, nothing is ever easy.
Once again Sarina Bowen’s characters came to life on the pages. I felt their emotions and sympathized with their trials and tribulations. I was mesmerized by pure simplicity of their love for one another. At the end of the day that is all that matters in life. Love is what matters most.
I would highly recommend reading Hello Forever by Sarina Bowen!
