The one woman Winter Tulane loved and lost is back, and he is determined to have her again, gracing his bed, filling his days and owning his heart. A joint tour with both 13 Shades of Red and her band, Strange Angels, is not the most optimal way to get her back, what with the actual working and pitfalls of the road to contend with, but Winter is determined to show her that what they had was good… and could be again.
Lola Cavendish harbors a secret she is desperate to keep from the one man she still wants and needs in her life. True, the joint tour with his band was her idea, but having an issue such as she does is not conducive to rekindling an affair. Taking drastic measures to ensure a reunion is the only way she can be certain she achieves her end game.
But the lives they both lead could stop a reunion before it starts. When past mistakes surface, it will take more than forgiveness to bring them together.

What a great series. This series follows the members of a band, 13 Shades of Red as we get to know each character while they are on tour. This is Forever features Winter and Lola/Natasha. Lola is actually a part of Strange Angels, another band in Price’s world. Winter’s paranormal orientation is mentioned a few times in Giving up The Ghost, and we learn a little more about him throughout this book as well as why Lola is going through the troubles she is experiencing.
This book has more paranormal elements than Giving up the Ghost, which I like. I’ve noticed that with each book in the series, the amount of paranormal elements increases. Since I prefer Paranormal to Romance, this is definitely a good thing for me.
This is Forever is really a sweet book. Winter’s dedication to winning back Lola’s affection makes me wish someone felt that strongly about me. He makes a few mistakes along the way, but he really does have a genuine heart. The sex in this book is mostly romantic. It’s very steamy and sexy but without being vulgar or harsh. It’s definitely sex about love and not just sex for the sake of having sex. Most of it anyway.
We are introduced to 2 new characters in This is Forever. They are my favorite characters thus far. Stoli and Gatsby are 2 “collectors”. They are friends with Winter. They seem like really cool chicks and have great personalities. They sound pretty hot too. I would definitely like to see more of them in the future.
My only complaint about This is Forever is that I don’t feel like we are given enough detail as to how Winter or Lola got into their current situations. We are told what happens, but I would like to have seen the actual scenes that occurred.
As with most books, the main characters could save themselves both a lot of heartache if they would just communicate. They are both so worried about the other finding out what’s going on, they don’t realize how much easier things would be if they were just up front with one another. But, as usual, we probably wouldn’t have as much of a story if they did that in the beginning, so I can’t complain too much about it!
I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys paranormal with romance that isn’t all about big ass Alpha males dominating their woman. The guys in this series are real. They are normal sized guys that wouldn’t squish you when you lay down with them in the biblical sense. I will continue to read this series, and probably every book by these authors.
