Everywhere I look, my friends are settling down - marriage, children, white picket fences; but not me. Marriage isn't in the cards for me. I’m a ladies man.

A rock star.

I was born and raised in the industry.
I love everything about my life, especially the attention from the women that my status brings me.

Women find me. I don’t chase. I know what they want and they know I’ll deliver.

But after one look, one touch, one night...

now I’m the one doing the chasing.

I need to find a way to show her that I’m serious, that I can change.

I need to find a way to show her that I can love her fully, and only her.

I need to find a way to show her that she’s my forever.

 My Thoughts:

  I have no doubt she’ll satisfy my hunger. She’ll quench my thirst. Then I can move on. I can get her out of my system and go about my business.

Heidi McLaughlin definitely threw me by surprise with Jenna and Jimmy's story! Right from the first book in the Beaumont Series I fell in love with all of Heidi's characters, because they are well developed. We get totally different stories in each book with each couple and this is what I absolutely loved about the Beaumont Series. I never got bored of reading about these characters. I was excited to know that Jenna and Jimmy were getting their own story, and that Heidi paired them off together with a HEA :D!

I know one thing’s for sure: I need to keep myself from falling in love with Jimmy Davis because he’s nothing but pure heartbreak waiting to happen.

In Finding My Forever Heidi throws in domestic abuse with Jenna's character. As we all already knew from the previous book that she had been married to a guy that enjoyed abusing her both physically and mentally. My first thought before reading her POV was "she is probably going to be mentally broken from her relationship with her husband" but I was wrong. Once I started reading from her POV I saw the strong women she became after going through such a horrible experience. There are a few times that she shows a little bit of weakness, but she puts herself back together. I just feel in love with her character because she's strong and doesn't let her own troubles and doubts come in the way of her happiness.

This woman can rock my world with just one look. She’s dangerous and if I’m not careful, she’ll break my heart.

I want to present you all to Jimmy Freaking Davis or as all his fans know him, JD :D! In the previous books I thought that Jimmy was just a womanizer that was never going to be able to settle for just one women, because he loves living the rock star life. Heck, I even thought he was a little immature. Heidi McLaughlin sure proved me wrong and made me fall in love with Jimmy. I love all of my Beaumont Boys, but there is just something about Jimmy that made me fall for him. He is just the perfect balance when it comes to dirty and sweet. His character is also mature in the way he thinks about the situations he experiences in the story. I just fell in love with Jimmy Davis because you get both the dirty hot and sweet with his character.

He’s holding on for dear life and as much as I want to hold on with him, I’m afraid.
I know I’m not the best man out there, but I look at you and you make me want to be better.

Jenna and Jimmy's relationship happened at the spur of the moment. I am not kidding. But this is what I loved about their relationship, because even if they just acted without thinking about the consequences it turned out to be one of the most beautiful relationships. As we all know Jimmy doesn't do relationships because of what his ex-girlfriend did to him. That really ruined his thoughts about anything having to do about love and being in a relationship. Jenna doesn't mind being a relationship, but she doesn't trust Jimmy because of his womanizer relationship. Their relationship doesn't start off as any normal relationship. They have a one-night stand and try to be friends but that is just awkward for the both of them. Once Jenna decides to give Jimmy a chance he does everything in his power to prove to her that he would do anything to gain her trust and believe that he wants a stable relationship with her. Of course Heidi throws a few twists and shock surprises that will test their relationship. 

"Jenna has it all. She’s my home.”

Finding My Forever by Heidi McLaughlin is so different from the other two books in the series. Heidi throws in mystery, domestic abuse, and twists that will have your jaw dropping to the floor with the shock. You will find yourself saying "what the hell just happened," because I usually believe I know what will happen next in the story, but that was not the case with Finding My Forever. Jenna and Jimmy's relationship is by far one of my favorites from the Beaumont Series, because it is so different from what I have read. Know I am left wondering what will come next? I want more of these stories from Heidi McLaughlin, because all of her characters are mature, unique, and memorable.

Final Verdict: 4.5 Stars
