REVIEW - For Forester - J. Nathan




TITLE - For Forester
AUTHOR - J. Nathan 









BLURB:




A Standalone New Adult Sports Romance in the For You series. Each book follows a new couple.

Trace
I'm Alabama's star wide receiver. I've got mad skills on and off the field, and it's no secret I'm heading into the draft after the upcoming season. But I'm home for the summer to make some cash before my senior year. Being back under my parents' roof isn't the ideal situation, but the moment I see Marin, the star of my adolescent fantasies, I know it's about to get interesting. She may not have noticed me back then, but I've got a feeling it's just a matter of time before she lets me turn those fantasies into reality.

Marin
The last time I saw Trace Forester he was just a kid tearing up the neighborhood on his skateboard. That was when I was foolish enough to think I had the perfect husband and the perfect life. But now my life is in shambles and Trace is back, all grown up, hot as hell, and exuding major confidence. It would be so easy to fall for his good looks and undeniable charm. So easy to let him into my life. Too bad I learned the hard way that nothing worth having ever comes easy.



REVIEW:




For Forester is another amazing novel from J. Nathan. It is such a sweet and sexy novel that readers will fall in love with. I know I did. For Forester can be read as a standalone, but if you read For Finlay, you will recognize some of the characters in this book, including our main hottie! I absolutely loved this book and hope that she continues to write the stories of the minor characters in this universe.


The plot of this book is such a refreshing one. Our main female character is not like most characters we get when reading New Adult novels.  She is a newly single mother going through a really rough time. Trace enters the picture as a way to help Marin help her son adjust and get the male figure in his life that he needs. I loved the plot of how these two come together to help each other.

Marin is such a strong woman. She goes through a huge life change, but holds it together for her son. I think she is one of the most admirable characters I have read in a long while. Even with the emotional scars she has, she is still willing to take a risk and open her heart to another. I think that is the true mark of strength. Not surviving through a hard time, but being willing to trust again after living through it. Trace is an amazing character on his own. Even though he is younger, he is much more mature than I expected. I loved his actions towards Marin and CJ. He is such a lovable character.

While there are some very sweet moments in this book, the author also included some hot and sexy scenes. I didn’t expect such a tangible chemistry between these two characters. Even their minor flirting was so hot I expected it to combust at any moment. Once they finally take a step to the physical side of things, well let’s just say I think my phone melted!

The writing style of this book is much like For Finlay. I actually really like the way the author writes. I feel she is able to transport readers into her world and make them feel things they didn’t realize they could feel from a book. This book is told from both characters point of view, which I love because I get to feel like I know more than the characters. It also upsets me at times because I find myself screaming (in my head of course) at the characters for not realizing how things really are. Even with that, I loved this book.

Overall, this was one amazingly hot and sexy book. I cannot wait to read more from this author. I would recommend this book to others. I hope to see these two characters in other books she writes because I just have to know how they are doing in the future. Amazing job!
