    Barbara Freethy has done it again The Callaway clan drew me in from the beginning The story of Nicole and Ryan has mystery suspense and romance It is always great to catch up with the Callways This book is a part of a series but can be read as a stand alone

    Solid 5 StarsI heard Barbara Freethy speak at RWA 2015 and was very impressed When I discovered this book on sale for 99 cents and the audio version for 199 I decided it was time to read one of her books I’m so glad I found this oneNicole Prescott is estranged from her husband when their autistic son Brandon disappears from the Halloween school festival Her soon to be ex husband joins her as they search for their missing sonAs they follow the clues to their little boy Nicole and Ryan must move beyond their differences if they want to find Brandon While on their journey can they find their way back to each other and reunite their family?Oh my Between Now and Forever is a riveting read filled with heart wrenching emotion The pacing is fast keeping me in its thrall from the first page to the last The plot is extremely well developed and the characters have wonderful depth Ms Freethy sprinkles in their backstory as she spins this tale of parents who are experiencing their worst nightmareNicole’s character is wonderfully complex with many facets to her personality I particularly enjoyed her self realization that she was as much to blame for her separation from her husband as he It showed a fantastic character arch I could feel her pain and her emotions as if they were mineRyan is somewhat of a tortured soul The guilt over their separation eats at him but the feelings of abandonment left over from his troubled childhood play mightily into the decisions he made and the deterioration of their marriage As he struggles with his emotions while searching for Brandon brought tears to my eyesThe depth of the love between Nicole and Brandon comes through loud and clear as they realize the love is still as strong as before the break in their relationship The chemistry between them jumps off the page and is very tastefully woven into this remarkable bookI listened to the audio version performed by Shannon McManus She reads with the perfect depth of emotion pulling me into the story She is able to give each character their distinct voice adding greatly to my listening enjoyment I will definitely listen to future books with Ms McManus as the narratorIf you enjoy an emotionally charged story with a great building of suspense and a heart warming second chance romance then you will love Between Now and Forever If this is the example of the other books in this series then I will be reading them as well Happy reading

    I have been waiting for Nicole and Ryan’s story ever since we were introduced to Brandon because any story about them was bound to tell us about Brandon I have been really curious about Brandon’s condition and have been hoping for a miracle for himNicole and Ryan have been together since they can remember They were so much in love They have always been there for each other But with Brandon being diagnosed with Autism their different outlook of the situation wedged a gap between them especially since instead of being each other’s priority Brandon took up all of their energies Sometime along the way they just stopped talking to each other making that gap between them seem just too big to be bridged ever again Falling for a Stranger Callaways #3 we found out that Ryan had moved out and that they were taking a break with things moving towards a divorce But an unexpected and heartbreaking event brings them back together Nicole and Ryan now must work together to bring their son back home Under dire situations they face than the unknown enemy they face the truth about themselves Will they find their way back to each other?I have to admit that I have been fascinated by Nicole and Ryan mostly because of Brandon An autistic child needs a lot love and attention and it can be strenuous on the parents I admired Nicole for never giving up upon her son and for always looking at things optimistically Ryan on the other hand is a good father no doubt but feels pessimistically about the situation I really wanted them not to give up on each other and for them to get back together I absolutely loved the way the author handled this particular story and Nicole and Ryan’s relationship While the mystery took up the major part of the plot Ryan and Nicole’s relationship was never on the back burner The author has found the perfect balance of mystery and romance in this book And my God the mystery in this book was just too good – I loved the concept completelyThis has to be my favourite book in the Series

    A couple since their teens Nicole and Ryan started an idyllic life Everything is fine until their five year old adopted son Brandon is diagnosed with autism and the strain as they seek out multiple ineffective treatments deal with increased costs and Nicole finds herself juggling her time and attention between husband and child Ryan is feeling ignored and unwanted and shuffled to the side reignighting his own issues with his own father as a child A common issue with couples after children let alone those who reuire special care and attention but Ryan’s own feelings of inadeuacy and abandonment from his own childhood make his position almost untenable Ryan and Nicole have separated she’s raising Brandon herself and dealing with his behavioral uirks But when a few moments of inattention lead to Brandon’s kidnapping the story ramps up to bring Ryan and Nicole together in search of their son Secondary plot involving Jessica and Sean and the kidnapping of Jessica’s son Kyle which will be the cornerstone of the next book but yet another Callaway in the horizonNicole and Ryan have plenty of love for one another but their own issues surrounding Brandon and Nicole’s guilt over his disappearance are simply issues that new parents need to learn to work with and around While Ryan is learning to be honest and open and sharing of his history Nicole is seeing him in a new light While I think that there was far too glossy a depiction of autism and Brandon’s sudden improvement didn’t feel possible real or even honest this is fiction and emotionally the story did pack a series of punches that truly put the struggles and connection between Ryan and Nicole into palpable form Another interesting installment in the series that is always adding unexpected twists and varying the tension and suspense keeping every book feeling fresh I received an eBook copy of the title from the author via Novel Publicity for purpose of honest review for a blog event I was not compensated for this review all conclusions are my own responsibility

    The plot lines of these books just keep getting and soap opera y Not going to lie crazy plot linee aside I loved this couple the most out of the four books I've read so far It helped that I felt they had the most realistic connection what with them being married but separated

    I found it rather insulting to kids with autism and their families which is unfortunate I've enjoyed some of the author's other work but really wish sometime had been spent with adoptive families of children severely impacted by autism
