    A Wonderful Story!

    All of the books in the This Time Forever series have been great reads but I have to say that I think Chasing Forever is now my favorite. We met Brian in book one, Building Forever, and he was a most unlikeable character. He cheated on his partner of 12 years and did other awful things. In Chasing Forever, we finally learn why and we also get to see what a wonderful man he really is. Note that this can be read as a standalone but you might enjoy it more if you read book one first. This book really hit me in all the right places. It made me laugh and it made me cry both happy and sad tears. Parts of this story were so hard to read – what happened to Brian when he was young and what happened to his nephew, Josh – but the story has a wonderful HEA One of the things I really liked about this series is that each of the couples were over 40. There are not enough romance books written about older couples (either M/F or M/M) and to have a three-book series like this was uplifting. Romance doesn't end after 30! Brian really struggles to deal with parenting his nephew; but he really ends up doing a fantastic job. Mal has self-esteem issues thanks to a relationship he finally ended; he can't see how someone as gorgeous as Brian could possible find him interesting or attractive. Chasing Forever has a couple of great sub-plots going on which made the book even more interesting. I don't know if this is the end of the series or not but I know I will be reading more books from Ms. Jensen. An advanced copy of this book was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***

    Great end to the series

    I would rate this 4.5 stars. This is the third book in this series. They will work as standalones so you don't have to read them in order, although you may get more of an emotional impact for this story if you do. This story focuses on Brian, Simon's ex from book one. He makes a brief cameo in book two. What is known about Brian so far doesn't make him the most likeable character, so the author has her work cut out to flesh him out in a sympathetic way. He's an architect and still has business ties to Simon. Malcolm and Brian actually meet at the local bar. Malcolm is on medical leave from teaching and coaching until he recovers from a car accident that broke both his legs. They really aren't each other's type, but Malcolm's well intentioned family and friends trying to warn him off Brian ends up backfiring. When Brian's nephew Josh shows up after being kicked out for being gay, Brian knows he may not be the best role model but there isn't anyone else and he does step up to the plate. Because the alternating POVs are from Brian and Malcolm, Josh is as much as mystery to the reader as he is to Brian. Josh ends up in Malcolm's class so when he needs help mentoring the school's LGBTQ society, he asks Brian since he is already on the board for the Smart Kids Foundation that helps disadvantaged kids. This allows Mal and Brian to get to know each other in ways Brian normally wouldn't bother. What makes this book work is seeing Brian struggle with feelings and memories of his own past as he helps Josh. Finally getting Brian's side to the break-up and how his past affected his life with Simon was crucial. Now that Simon has had a chance to reflect, he sees his part in what went wrong also--this doesn't excuse Brian's cheating, just makes it more understandable. When they finally talk about the past, I did want a little more, but maybe it was enough for them to both let go and move on towards a healthier friendship. Where Brian shines is his patience and thoughtfulness with Mal's injuries. Also, his best friend Vanessa is proof of his ability to have a long term, honest relationship. There are several times in the book where there is dissonance between how others see Brian and how he sees himself; if he could only see the good he does instead of using his persona to distance himself, which makes him less likeable. Mal getting to see the real Brian and accepting him seems to be what he needs to start a new chapter. I thought this book was very well done. There were minor things I think could have been more fleshed out to give the story a bit more roundness, but the framework is solid. I like Mal and Brian together. I like that helping Josh and confronting his past, helps Brian start to heal so he could be a better partner to Mal. Brian actually interacting with the LGBTQ society instead of just hiding behind giving money is a great step. So, I ended up liking Brian. There, I said it.

    Intimate, sensuous, and timely!

    Chasing Forever is a passionate, heartwarming tale that takes us into the lives of Malcolm and Brian as they each must learn to cope with the baggage from their past, overcome their insecurities, fight for what they truly want, and work together to create a haven for the kids in their community. The writing is sincere and heartfelt. The characters are flawed, caring, and genuine. And the plot is an alluring, push-pull storyline filled with friendship, family, tension, responsibility, support, humor, shameless flirting, angst, heartbreak, and unconditional love. Overall, Chasing Forever is a well written, provocative, emotional story by Jensen that does an excellent job of highlighting the challenges, prejudices, and ignorance faced by those in the LGBTQIA community and reminds us just how much guidance and support all teens require when discovering and embracing their sexual identity.
