  • Absolutely Amazing!

    I cannot get enough of Chloe Liese's writing and this book is no exception. For readers of the Bergman series, we have seen Axel and Rooney circle around each other for years. Talk about a slow burn. The tension and chemistry is high with these two before they even get to this book. When sunshine Rooney needs a place to escape to and recover for awhile, her best friend, Willa, offers up the Bergman family cabin in the woods. What Rooney doesn't know is that this is grumpy Axel's time with the cabin and he actually has a major project on his hands that leads to a marriage of convenience between the two. As always, I love the way that Liese writes about people who struggle with disease and neurodiversity in such a respectful and caring way. Rooney's journey with IBD is very real and refreshing to see actively discussed on page with zero shame. Axel really hit me deeply in this book. I strongly related to his feelings of not quite fitting neatly into his family dynamic or even societal expectations. The way in which Liese unabashedly respects Axel's need for space and distance from people and places reached my heart in a big way. It both made me super reflective while also feeling very validated. I will sing Liese's praises until the end of time for writing Axel. I didn't know how much I needed him. Of course, this is a Bergman book so there is the big, loving family and plenty of lines to make you laugh out loud. The setting in the woods of Washington cannot be beat (not surprising as much of that is the Axel in me). The writing is engaging and the book hard to put down. While it is part of a series and you do benefit from backstories and character interactions having read the previous three, you can read this as a standalone. Chloe Liese is one of those authors that brings such comfort and hope as both a human and a parent of humans that there is good in the world and it's only going to get better with books like this out there. I cannot recommend you read her enough! Thank you to the author for an ARC of this book. The opinions here are my own.

  • "With You Forever" is a stunning romance

    What you need to know about “With You Forever”: ✔ Slow Burn but steamy ✔ Dual Point of View ✔ Rooney Sullivan, 24, Willa’s BFF, studying environmental law ✔ Axel Bergman, 30, reclusive artist ✔ Forced Proximity ✔ Marriage of Convenience ✔ Grump and Sunshine ✔ #OwnVoices ✔ Bergman Siblings #4 In “Ever After Always” Rooney kissed Axel during a game of charades to his everlasting shock and then ran out of the room. In “With You Forever” we quickly find out the reason she ran out, which I will not be revealing in this review. I will just say that she’s been hiding something from everyone including Willa and now she’s taking some time off and going to the Bergmans’ A-frame in Washington state for some much-needed self-care. Meanwhile, at the A-frame, Axel is facing a crisis in that it is badly in need of repair, he is facing painter’s block of a kind so he doesn’t have the money for repairs and, in order to get his inheritance he needs to be married! Axel feels that he must tackle the repairs without alerting his family as this is how he shows love to his expressive family. “I don’t love like they do.” He has been unable to paint since the Charades Kiss because all he sees is Rooney. Rooney arrives at the A-frame and literally runs into a stunned Axel. Axel lets her know that the house is uninhabitable and takes her to his place where he quickly disappears only leaving her with a note letting her know that she can stay there for her visit. Eventually, their forced proximity situation develops into a marriage of convenience so that Axel can access his inheritance. (that sound you are hearing is me shrieking with joy at all of my favorite tropes being deployed in this novel) Rooney and Axel’s pairing is wonderful, not just as sunshine and grump characters, but as real individuals with vulnerabilities who are working together as partners to accomplish a goal. Of course, neither of them realizes the other has a giant crush. Chloe Liese builds an emotional relationship between two people breath by breath and scene by scene, creating something so powerfully real and lovely that you can’t help but be swept up by it. Liese also creates stunning descriptions of her characters, their emotions and the backdrops that leave your senses overjoyed with descriptors such as, “evening sun drips golden tangerine across the ground.” and “Her eyes meet mine, and that moment feels like a new color, brushed across my heart’s canvas.” There are also so many moments in this book that are flat out hilarious - the emotions are well balanced and give you a full experience of every range of sentiments you could feel. Rooney and Axel’s evolving relationship is a pure pleasure to be immersed in. Rooney starts to understand the pressures that Axel places on himself, “The deeper you love, the deeper the risk of disappointment, and hurt and loss.” As Rooney shares her secret with Axel it is a tender moment as she gives Axel the time to let him express himself. They truly learn each other so well in this book and it is beautiful. Their relationship is a “delicate dance” and as Viggo says, “there’s a love story for anyone out there who wants one.” This is a gently paced yet steamy romance that reassures us that no matter what insecurities or vulnerabilities we face we all deserve to be accepted, safe and loved for who we really are. I highly recommend “With You Forever”, a stunning romance that reminds us to our core of the meaning of bravery, family and love. WRITING STYLE: 5/5 PLOT: 5/5 WORLD-BUILDING: 5/5 PACING: 5/5 CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT: 5/5 ROMANCE: 5/5 HEAT: 5/5

  • Potentially My Favorite Romance of 2021!

    “With the right person, love is possible for any of us who want it.” With You Forever was one of my most anticipated reads of 2021 and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Chloe’s work continues to be some of my favorite ever written and With You Forever is now in the running to be my favorite book of the year! Why do I love this book so much? I could literally write my own full length book, about the countless reasons why I love it, but the short version: this book is utter perfection. What I Loved: ✨Grump & Sunshine Trope - My absolute favorite romance trope and Axel and Rooney embody it so beautifully! ✨All the Fall Vibes - Fall is my favorite season and this book just does a fantastic job of capturing why I love it and seamlessly tying it into Axel and Rooney’s love story. Give me all the romance paired with crisp air, gorgeous leaves and cozy flannels! I can guarantee you, I’ll be rereading this book every fall moving forward! ✨An Inclusive Love Story - I love how this book emphasizes the multitude of ways people can love and be loved in return. I truly lost count of the number of times Liese brought me to tears while reading. ❤️ Those are only a few of the reasons why I love With You Forever (and there are so many more), but if you’re looking for a book that will make you believe in the power of love and will have your heart soaring as you devour its pages, this is the book for you! ❤️ If you excuse me, I will now be queuing up the With You Forever Audiobook, because I already want to do a reread (that’s just how good it is)! Thank you to @netgalley and @chloe_liese for the ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • The Best in the Series So Far

    Chloe Liese is one of my favorite authors, and her Bergmans series is one of my all-time favorite romance series. Needless to say, With You Forever was one of my most anticipated reads for 2021. I squealed with glee when I realized I got to read an arc of it!! I’ve been waiting for Rooney and Axel’s book with bated breath. I couldn’t wait to see how Liese was going to write their love story. She didn’t disappoint. This book was everything I wanted and more. This book has everything you could want! Sunshine and grump trope? Check. Slow-burn romance? Check. Marriage of convenience? Check. Swoonworthy romance? Check. Witty banter? Check. Great representation? Check. Seriously, what else could you ask for in a romance book? Oh yeah, nothing. Once I started this book, I struggled to put it down. I’m not kidding. I read it on my lunch break because working instead of reading was slowly killing me. Rooney and Axel’s romance was nothing short of beautiful. They formed such a strong friendship which then turned into a romantic relationship. Everything felt natural between them. I adore them. They understand each other on a deeper level and never judge each other. One of my favorite things about this series and Liese’s writing is the representation. Her characters are diverse and written exceptionally well. So far in this series, there has been loss of hearing rep, anxiety rep, (ownvoices) autism rep, chronic IBD rep, curvy rep, and rheumatoid arthritis rep. As usual, Liese knocked it out of the park with the representation in this book. Liese wrote Rooney’s character arc beautifully. Throughout this book, we watch Rooney learn to accept that IBD is part of her life, and we see her become comfortable talking about it instead of being embarrassed. The same goes for Axel; he had grown comfortable in his ways and with his autism diagnosis. Axel had convinced himself that he couldn't have a meaningful romantic relationship with anyone. He thought he was better off alone. I could go on and on about this book and this series, but I’ll end this review by saying everyone needs to check out this book. You’ll love it.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Great series!

    I challenge you to read a Chloe Liese book and not get all the feels. It is just not doable. Rooney and Axel share a kiss during charades and then she runs. Of course, the meddling Bergman family won't let that just be. They can see that the two of them are dancing around each other and just need a nudge. Rooney needed some time off of law school and with her chronic illness flaring up, the A-frame is the perfect place for some relaxation. When she gets there, she finds Axel there and the place in disrepair. Little does his family know, the place is falling apart and he doesn't want to see it get sold, so he is fixing it himself. He just has to come up with the money to get it done. Luckily, as soon as he gets married he comes into some money.. not so luckily, he has zero prospects on the horizon. Rooney and Axel come into an agreement of sorts and she agrees to marry him so that he can get the money to fix up the family cabin. It's a marriage of convience, loveless right? Well, they both have it bad for one another so all this forced proximity is going to get awkward. Both of these characters are flawed and real, and that is what I enjoy most about Chloe's books, you get to see the bad with the good and it isn't all just sunshine and rainbows. This one I would have liked a little more conflict and more communication, but I really enjoyed this installment in the Bergman series.

    Thanks for your feedback!
