When Caleb McGraw sweeps Snow Cameron off her feet, she never expects their whirlwind romance to lead to a Vegas wedding chapel. Before she can catch her breath, Caleb starts talking kids and college funds while his wealthy parents make their disapproval painfully clear. Convinced she was blinded by lust, not love, Snow takes off for Ardent Springs, Tennessee, two months into the marriage.
Heir to a media conglomerate, Caleb never experienced struggle or rejection, until Snow sends him on a wild hunt for his runaway bride. When he finally finds her—managing a curiosity shop beloved by the quirky locals—she agrees to give the marriage another chance, but on one condition: no sex for a month. Can their love stand the test, or will they give in to their attraction?
In this humorous and heartwarming Ardent Springs romance, two lost hearts start over in a town where everyone deserves a second chance and love always wins in the end.
Our Now and Forever is a standalone read. However, readers first meet Snow Cameron in His First and Last. I couldn’t wait to read the story of one of Ardent Springs, Tennessee’s newest residents. I knew Snow had a past she didn’t want to discuss, I just didn’t realize that her past would include Caleb McGraw, her husband.
It seems Snow and Caleb had a whirlwind courtship that resulted in them flying to Vegas and waking up married. Two months into their marriage, Snow decides she doesn’t know her husband and the two are much too different. Instead of talking to her husband, trying to work things out, or asking for a divorce, Snow packs up and leaves like a thief in the night. Now eighteen months later, Caleb has finally found Snow. He wants to know why she left and he wants her to give them a chance.
When I first started reading Our Now and Forever, I wasn't sure how I felt about Snow. It seemed when she left her husband and family in the middle of the night, she had no desire to ever speak to or see her husband again. I found myself wanting to jump into the book and shake some sense into her or just scream at her to say what was wrong.
Caleb for his part was likeable from the start. I’m not going to harp on how great he is from truly listening to Snow to cooking the best meal around. He is simply a dream. “I was paying attention, Snow. We were never just sex for me.”
When Snow lets her guard down and lives in the moment with Caleb, these two are great together. Once she got over her own issues, she became a likeable character and I understood her. The chemistry between these two was amazingly good. In the end, Snow and Caleb realize the depth of their love for one and other. Our Now and Forever is not without a surprise or two and those were definitely turning points in the story for me.
I can’t wait to see who the next Ardent Springs resident to find love is going to be.
