  • Jo - *✽*•.★Reading Is My Bliss★.•*✽*
    It would be fair to say that this book had me in its grip within the first few pages. I should also point out that I unwisely decided to begin reading this late at night before going to bed, one chapter won't hurt right? I should not have underestimated Heidi's writing, she always manages to draw me into her emotionally charged stories. That is why I was nearly halfway through this book at 1.30am and had to force myself to put it down. However, I...
  • Anne OK
    Yeah, not so much of a hit for me. I was sorely disappointed, too. The theme is a big favorite of mine. I love a quarterback -- and the best friends to lovers romance. You'll get no argument from me that this one had some heavy emotional feels. Peyton's accident and recovery took my breath away. I'll admit that I misted up throughout most of those moments. Noah and Peyton, childhood best friends in a lifetime close-knit-family-ties way was preval...

    4.5 stars!Love everything about this book. I highly recommend if you're into childhood friends turns into love but shit happens theme.. lol! I've read the book Forever My Girl and that's a long time ago.. so when all these names throwing from left to right was confusing as fuck! I was in a phase where I'm like "who are all these people?!" transition from "oh.. that's her, or wow that's him" but despite all that it didn't stop me from devouring th...

    They've known each other since they were young. Yet they never crossed that line until they did. We get to see both POV's and it helped to be able to see what each one meant to the other in their own words. Noah and Peyton didn't know how they felt for each other because they were resolved to never cross that line so they moved on with their lives but I could see that they both were not happy. I wanted to shake them both and have them see that t...

    i love it! so emotional and heartbreaking! prepare tissues!
  • Nicole H.
    Let me preface this by saying I've five starred every other book in the Beaumont series and was looking forward to Noah's love story. Liam was my favorite. He was so distinctive and I expected so much from his son.... but Holy shit. That was so boring. I kept getting distracted by tv commercials and skipping several pages at a time just to see if anything ever happened. Spoiler- nothing does. On my death bed I will want back the hours wasted by r...

    A rollercoaster of emotions. McLaughlin takes you on a journey of two hearts destined to be together.
  • NinaReader
    This was just ok.Coming off a high from a really enjoyable wrap up book of Josie and Liam's story - this next generation story of their son Noah was disappointing. With Josie and Liam having such a great story and watching Noah grow into a man, I thought this would be pretty great. I didn't expect that Noah would be such a dumbass. I mean male characters can do some dumbass things but Noah seems to do it over and over and with characters that we ...

    A surprising and truly heart-wrenching readI love the idea of this series! Heidi McLaughlin has taken us back into the world of her Beaumont series, and is giving us the stories of the children who stole our hearts. First up is Noah (son of Liam & Josie from Forever My Girl) and Peyton (daughter of Harrison & Katelyn from My Unexpected Forever) and a friends-to-lovers romance that will rip your heart out and keep you guessing how it’s all going...

    Reviewed on behalf of The Book Boyfriend Addict (www.bookboyfriendaddict.com). A complimentary copy was provided in exchange for an honest review. To Peyton, I’m Noah. The guy she’s known her entire life and once called her best friend. To me, she’s everything. Noah Westbury and Peyton Powell-James have been friends since they were children. Their families are a close-knit group that’s always been there for one another. Somewhere along t...

    One of the best books I have read. I usually do a top 20 list for the year and this book will be on it...Why? It's was so beautiful. Noah Westbury is the guy every girl wants in their lives. For Peyton Powell-James, he was the best big brother ever..Then he became the guy all her friends were crushing on, including her. But the biggest change came when Peyton turned 18 and Noah saw her as a beautiful woman and suddenly the 5 year age difference d...
  • TheresaDK
    Sometimes I hate myself... I read the first 40% and liked the drama, then I got super impatient and skipped to 80% and read the rest in one go. I was only supposed to skim not actually READ the rest. And then, of course, I couldn't go back to the 40% and read the in-between, cos I was already mad at the H for being a dumbass but relieved that I didn't have to actually read and experience his dumbass moves, just the aftermath of him being a dumbas...
  • Rebecca
    Since I first read the Beaumont series four years ago, I desperately wanted Peyton and Noah’s story to be told. I can honestly say, this is hands down my favorite book of Heidi’s, and one of her best works to date. I can’t even put into words just how phenomenal this story was. Holding Onto Forever is one of my top reads this year, and I can’t wait for who’s love story we get next.

    Total binge read!When I decided to read Holding Onto Forever, by Heidi McLaughlin, I had a feeling that it was going to be good because I loved the other books in the Beaumont series. I’ve been a little leery about reading series spin-offs lately. There have been times I have read a spin-off, and it was so-so, or I felt lost (if I didn’t read the original book it was based on). I’m thrilled to report that this wasn’t the case!Holding Onto...
  • Krystal Gaddis
    Okay first, this started off okay. The accident, the emotion...it definitely kept me turning the pages.But then the Dessie part....I've never rolled my eyes so many times. Every character in this book just seemed so weak and gullible. Nobody calls Dessie out on her antics...they just go along with it and give in to anything she wants. In what world does a expectant father or his protective mother, especially a suspicious one, not ask for a sonogr...
  • Suzi (Obsessive Reading Disorder)
    Words can not even come close to expressing all the feels wrapped up in this book. I have been a fan from the moment I met Liam Westbury. I went on a journey with all his band mates. And now, the author brings us a love story for the ages. The children of Liam, Harrison and Jimmy are growing up. This is where the tale continues. What happened to those adorable children? Holding Onto Forever brings us a first look. Noah Westbury and Peyton Powell-...

    2.5 stars. Fair warning - spoilers ahead.Loved the first half, and I thought it was a great way to tell the story. I liked the flashbacks and the slightly supernatural feel, loved the little touches with Mason, loved seeing all the characters I've come to love, and I was very excited for the moment when Peyton would wake up, but it all fell apart in the second half. Noah was weak with no backbone and I couldn't believe he was just going along wit...

    ellie's $0.02:To pick my favorite Heidi McLaughlin book is like having to eat tacos just one day a week. Impossible.This is the start of the next generation. Literally. It's the Next Generation series of the Beaumonts. And yeah, the next generation is all grown up and falling in love and having sex. Weird.You do not have to have read the Beaumont Series to understand and enjoy this series. Of course, the characters appear in this one and was so c...
  • (Tori-Smexybooks) smexys_sidekick
    The spin-off to McLaughlin's best selling Beaumont series was a bit of a disappointment. Especially the fact that the hero is Noah Westbury whose father was the hero in Forever My Girl. I expected something a little bit similar in terms of emotional journeys, heartbreak, redemption, and of course family because that is the base on which McLaughlin writes. Unfortunately this one felt extremely juvenile and stilted in terms of narrative and storyli...
  • Anne Milne
    Really loved reading about Noah and Peyton two young people destined to be together. This story was like a rollercoaster ride, my emotions were all over the place. I was willing them on but with outside forces conspiring against them maybe fate has other plans for them.It was fun catching up with all the families.

    Omg this book had me an emotional mess from the get go. Another amazing book from heidi
  • Karen
    I'm not a huge fan of Noah but my girl, Peyton is a huge fan. The heart wants who the heart wants.I didn't care for Noah because of his girlfriend. I hate when guys are oblivious to the horrible people they are dating because she's beautiful. He apparently is dumb and has no cawhonas. But the writing with Peyton struggling to survive was so good. The tight knit family is so fun to read in this series as well. Hoping Quinn and Elle both get a book...

    Let me start by saying that Heidi did SOOOO GOOD!! This book! Guys I mean it, there just aren't words adequate enough to describe the range of emotions brought by this story! It was heartbreaking and hopeful and angsty in a way that I just couldn't stop reading. I've always loved this Beaumont Series from the first time I read Forever My Girl, so to now experience Noah and Peyton as adults? Well let me say there were a lot of tears! A LOT! And I ...

    *4.5 Heartbreaking, Beautiful, Angsty Stars*This is a book one In the Beaumont Next Generation series, a spinoff of The Beaumont series. I read the original series and when it ended I wanted to see the kids. I had a soft spot in my heart for Noah and Peyton. This story has so many emotional touches in it will gut you, rip your heart out, get put back together then be gutted again then find yourself smiling and hoping for the best. I have to say b...
