Today I’m here to tell you about a steamy romance that may be flying under your radar.
Tara Gallina’s The Forever Series is a sizzling series full of romance, sex and Sebastian!
Let’s take a look at the books and why they are just the perfect sexy romance you need right now.
My best friend has been obsessed with Sebastian since our freshman year in college. She wants him to herself, which is fine by me. He’s a paycheck, a means to an end goal. He’s temporary. But he’s also tempting—the way he looks at me, the things he says, the way he touches me… If I’m not careful, I might do something I’ll regret. ~Ainsley Belle
THE FOREVER SERIES
At twenty, Ainsley knows it’s time to follow her own dreams and not the future her that was planned for her—a future she never wanted. Losing her job couldn’t have come at a worse time.
Sebastian Gianni isn’t the ideal boss, but he has a position to fill and Ainsley is desperate. The sexy twenty-two-year-old comes from money, owns a successful business, and graduates from college in three months. He has his life together in a way Ainsley could only dream.
No wonder her best friend is obsessed with dating him. Even his ex-girlfriend is determined to get him back, although threatening him seems like the wrong approach. Ainsley would be a fool to fall for the guy, too.
By no means, should she trust him. He has more secrets than anyone she knows, which makes her wonder if the mafia rumors about him are true. It doesn’t matter that he’s a good listener, and sweet and protective at times. That playful flirty side he shares with her alone means nothing. Right?
When a kiss turns into a secret romance neither can give up, Ainsley learns the truth about Sebastian’s corrupt family and why his ex-girlfriend won’t go away. A future together is near impossible and comes with a risk that could get them both killed—or give them everything they’ve ever wanted.
Tawney’s Review: I highly recommend this book! I received an ARC for a review and couldn’t have been more pleased with this sexy romance! There is wonderful chemistry and a smoldering passion between Ainsley & Sebastian. As their relationship develops you can feel the tension and the passion waiting to explode. There are also many thrills with Sebastian’s rumored connection to the Mafia. I couldn’t stop reading this novel and binge read it until the very end. And wow what an ending! If you are looking for a good sexy read with wonderful characters and some thrills, than Risking Forever is the one for you.
The sequel to Risking Forever: vol 1. Continue the story.
The toga party and sheet draped loosely around my body didn’t make me kiss him. The alcohol and near attack by a drunk douche didn’t make me either. I can’t even blame it on the flirty dare Sebastian gave me a moment before I claimed his lips with a gentle kiss. While each contributed to the incident, I did it because I’m selfish.
For once in my life I took what I wanted. I didn’t think about anyone else but myself. I wanted a kiss, and I got a lot more. I figured it’d be good. I just didn’t know how much I’d grow to crave it—crave him.
No one can find out about us. If they do, I could end up homeless, friendless, or worse, in danger. It’s not like what we do in secret changes anything—other than my feelings for him. He’s as unattainable as a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. At least now I know the truth about his family and why his life isn’t his own.
He made me an offer I refuse to accept. If I don’t find a way to separate my body from my heart when we’re together, I’ll end up as trapped as he is. ~ Ainsley
Tawney’s Review: So glad to be returning to Ainsley and Sebastian! Daring Forever takes us right where Risking Forever left off with Ainsley and Sebastian growing closer and closer. Now here’s where things get steamy as you can just feel the heat radiating between the two. Sebastian’s mystique starts to peel away and we get to see the real man behind those layers rather than the tough persona. The dialogue between the two is fantastic as they banter and flirt. Tara does a wonderful job at keeping the chemistry between the two sizzling. The description is vivid and you can feel every glance and yearning from Ainsley. And can we just sit and drool at these covers? I highly recommend The Forever Series if you are looking for a sexy read with steamy characters and hot tension. I can’t wait for the third instalment!
The final installment to the Forever Series—for now.
It happened. I knew it would. I fell for him. The revelation didn’t rise within me like an orange sun emerging from the ocean. This wake-up call was more of a slap to the face. And now that it’s out, the silence from Sebastian has me wondering if I’ve lost my hearing.
What did I expect, for him to love me back? He’s made it clear since the beginning that can’t happen. This is on me. Walking away would be the smart choice. I have dreams to follow, and a new life to start far away.
If only I could take Sebastian with me. If only I could convince him the risk is worth the reward. If he knew he could escape his father without harm, he’d go. Not just for me but for himself. He may not love me, but he cares. I wouldn’t have given myself to him, if I had thought otherwise. ~ Ainsley
Tawney’s Review: It’s the conclusion to Sebastian and Ainsley’s story and I couldn’t wait to see the outcome of this smoldering romance. Sebastian and Ainsley have been through it all and author Tara Gallina likes to pull at your heartstrings. She does a wonderful job at immersing the reader right with Sebastian and Ainsley. Her description and detail just paints the vivid picture of the complications that the couple go through. You can’t help but connect with Sebastian and Ainsley, rooting for them all the way. I couldn’t turn each page fast enough, as the pace was swift and some parts intense to the point I wanted to peek to the ending to see what happens. Well I didn’t and it was worth the read! There is such a connection between Sebastian and Ainsley that you feel it too as Tara takes you on a suspenseful fulfilling conclusions to their love story.
Just when you think it’s over here is another book in The Forever series with Sebastian’s point of view!
Hiring Ainsley was a mistake but firing the little beauty when she’s broke seems unfair. Besides, I like being around her. She doesn’t want anything from me like everyone else. She’s not aggressive or forceful. She’s sweet, unexpected, and, damn, if she isn’t getting under my skin. If I’m not careful, I’ll drag her into my arms, my bed, and into the dark pit of my world—a place she doesn’t belong. A place I don’t belong, but a place I might be able to withstand if she’s with me. ~ Sebastian Gianni
Sebastian – Risking Forever is the companion novel to, Risking Forever: vol 1, and told from Sebastian’s POV. **Warning**This novel contains spoilers that aren’t revealed in Risking Forever: vol 1 until mid-point in Daring Forever: vol 2. I kept the stories separate to maintain the mystery and suspense in Risking Forever and recommend reading the other 2 first.
Tawney’s Review: If this series couldn’t get any better we get Sebastian’s point of view! We get to hear his thoughts and perspective on Ainsley. Author Tara Gallina does a wonderful job at bringing Sebastian to life and taking on the man’s perspective. I was not disappointed. I do suggestion readers read this book once they finish with the series and Ainsley’s point of view. It was immensely fun and heartbreaking to follow Sebastian. You wanted to both hug him and hit him at the same time. This was the companion novel we needed. I immensely enjoyed this book.

And so the big question now is what’s next Tara? Because we need more romance from you!
