When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later, Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on TV—at a school which has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly, he can’t wait to get there.

Cax can’t believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he’s still just as drawn to Axel as ever. But he can’t let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.

Hello Forever is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Readers of Goodbye Paradise will get to check in on Caleb and Josh and their clan.

In true Sarina Bowen fashion, she gives us another set of characters that are so damn easy to fall in LOVE with! She gives us a story of purpose, hope, and self-acceptance. She gives us a story of friendship, companionship, and love. Cax and Axel’s story will punch you right in the gut with tons of emotions and a big helping of FEELS! I absolutely ADORED these two together and on their own. A new love falls apart at such a young age, only to be reunited years later with no change in the circumstances. It’s safe to say that even though years have passed, the connection, the adoration, the endearing love that these two once shared, never truly went away. A man hiding who he really is. Another man with the patience of a saint waits for the right time for them to be together again. It’s all so incredibly heartbreaking and beautiful. Just like all of Sarina’s characters, these two struck a chord within me. They stole my heart, and I have no urge to take it back. And like Josh and Caleb (who make multiple appearances in this one, btw) Cax and Axel has forever embedded themselves in my soul. I don’t know how she does it but, Ms. Bowen continues to astound me with her words and her beautifully complex characters. The depth of her storytelling is incredible, and she has me begging for each and every word. It was hard to say goodbye to these characters, but I definitely see a reread in the very near future! Thank you Sarina for giving us another story that makes us FEEL…that makes us HURT…that makes us SOAR. Another incredible story from one AMAZING storyteller!

About Sarina Bowen

Sarina Bowen writes steamy, angsty contemporary romance from Vermont’s Green Mountains. (Her ancestors began logging and farming Vermont during the 18th century. These were rugged, outdoor types without benefit of a laptop or a good latte. It boggles the mind.)

Sarina enjoys skiing, skating and good food. She lives in Windsor County, Vermont, with her family, eight chickens and too much ski gear and hockey equipment.
