    One thing I have to give Farrah Rochon is that she writes pretty easy to read and great contemporary romances Her heroes tend to be stand up errexcluding A Forever Kind of Love's Corey because cheating even in the past isn't my thing and confident but not cocky imo guys which is a nice change from alpha assholes This book was no differentMatthew Gauthier is an attorney and son of the founding family of Gauthier Lousiana His current goal is to run and win the state senate seat to benefit his little town Matt had ualities I generally really like in a hero He was confident and smooth he threw out plenty of double entendres though didn't go overboard imo and he respected a woman's word when she said no He also knew he wanted Tamryn early on and after a bit of delay he went for her when he couldn't deny his attraction He first wanted to avoid entanglement with Tamryn because she's a history professor who's been working on her own family's history for uite some time Her family happens to have a connection to his so she's been trying to contact him for the last six months but he's been doing everything he can to avoid her And then one day he finds her on the side of the road in a busted car because she was headed to his town and helps her out only later discovering that she's the professor who's been hounding him for monthsHowever there were some things I didn't like about him He's clearly far experienced than Tamryn although she's not a virgin so that's a plus He's said to be a ladies man and has dated plenty of women including ones from his small town two of whom the readers meet One of his exs Mariska is even said to have had a bad breakup with him but it's not explained what it was that happened I don't know why we had to meet them tbh because they didn't add anything to the book A plus is that he does say he's fiercely monogamous so he's not the player or cheating type but I don't know what that means for when he's single and whether he sleeps around or notAnd then we have Dr Tamryn West who's an African American history and women's studies professor at a university in Boston Like I mentioned she's been looking for information about her family's past After a stop on the Underground Railroad is discovered in Matt's family's law practice building she uncovers that her great great great grandmother Adeline had likely been a conductor in that very place She also wants to uncover proof in the form of a diary that her ancestor had worked to open the first school for black children in the US and had done so along with Matt's ancestor NicoletteUnlike Matt I don't recall there being much mentioned about Tamryn's dating history She mentions that her libido is too often ignored so I took that to mean that her dating history isn't all that long at least in comparison to Matt's Like Matt an ex of hers does make an appearance Her ex is Reid Hayes a co faculty member who she dated for about two years but they broke up after she helped him on a research project putting aside her own work for an entire year which gained him accolades and grants The problem? He didn't credit her anywhere Unlike the appearances of Matt's exs however Reid does serve a purpose He is now the head of the history department at her university and because she doesn't have tenure it's pretty clear that Tamryn's job is on the line if she doesn't get this research project about her family doneAnd that where's the great conflict of the book comes in She needs proof about her family's involvement with this school in order to write this paper She finds things here and there but there's nothing concrete that connects Adelaide to it that she can find She needs Nicolette's journala journal that Matt happens to have He doesn't want to turn that journal over to her because it also contains his family's past wrong doings which would then hinder his run at the state senate seat And it would ruin his family's name in the town that they founded This was also why he avoided her calls and put her off for half a year And his conflict then centres around him choosing between the woman he was uickly falling in love with and the town he owed so much toWith the conflict I did find it believable He wanted to do what was best for his town which he felt he could do better as a senator but he also didn't know if he could hand damaging information about his family to Tamryn who was a stranger at this point I understood his dilemma and found it to be plausible The issue I had with it is that I didn't think it was that great of a secret It was his family's past transgressions with having to do with lining their pockets with money and stuff but I didn't think it was that great for it to be hovering over the entire book like a dark cloud I also think that part of it was because Matt beat himself up over it for the entire book feeling guilty as hell but then the author resolved it within a couple of pagesThe bigger issue for me was Matt keeping the diary a secret from Tamryn which she needed for her research He even tried to get her to stop her research at one point saying that maybe evidence of Adelaide's involvement in the school is because there really isn't any He felt like shit as he said it but he still said it She still presses on and doesn't stop but the betrayal is still there While at the end he does apologize to her and his apology was definitely heartfelt and not lacking I still felt he should've grovelled a bit At the same time that the above issue with his ancestors is resolved Tamryn is forgiving him I really didn't like that He spent the entire book lying through omission to her so I was expecting a bit And combine that with her previous betrayal with Reid so I was expecting far than just her understanding his dilemma and forgiving him as a resultWith the conflict while I felt things meandered through the story the conflict and resolution felt rushed and hurriedly resolved The book was building up to the major climax but then things came to a head in one chapter and were resolved in the next It was pretty dissatisfying I also don't like when things are kept a secret for so long especially as the reader but then it makes me go that's it? when it's finally revealedHowever I really do like Rochon's writing and characters and will continue to read her books but I just wish the story itself was engaging and better plotted I also feel that if you're going to act like there's some deep dark secret that there actually should be Greed and corruption isn't great but it's fairly minor when you consider other transgressions that there could've possibly been However if it had been something worse I feel it would've started veering into irredeemable territory which I don't think the author wanted to do with the town's well loved son Matt BUT because the entire book kept going on about how bad his family's past was I felt disappointed when things were finally revealed

    How I long to visit Louisiana The culture and food are what interest me most I enjoyed Yours Forever Matt and Tamryn's story was a good one Matt was trying to do all he could for Gauthier to make up for the past atrocities of his ancestors upon the city Tamryn left Boston to come to Gauthier looking for evidence of a school for free blacks and slave children her grandmother Adeline West had started with a Gauthier ancestor Matt had been ignoring her previous calls for six months before she showed up I would surmise the message of Yours forever is redemption Both Tamryn and Matt found redemption for themselves albeit being in totally different ways I must say that the storyline was good but I wanted a developed love story I'm tiring or becoming disenchanted with the insta loveI was provided an eArc by the publisher via NetgalleyNote Read my updates because I always tell detail about characters and story as I'm reading

    Nice story Heroine is a history professor at a college in Boston researching the hero's ancestor who had a connection with her great great great great grandmother He's been avoiding her but now she's come to Louisiana to do her research close up And she's gorgeous He'd much rather date her than answer uestions There's plenty of angst to go around the heroine's over her job and a nasty ex boyfriend the hero's over his shady family past and his dad particularly since he's running for the state legislature and trying to run as clean a campaign as possible Not much plot but a good story what with all the angst to be resolved I liked it

    You can feel the connection from the start between lawyer Matt finds professor Tamryn standing by her broken car on a back road in Louisiana He whisks her away on his motorcycle neither of them knowing he is the man who won't response to her many inuires about her ancestress who possibly founded a school for slave children along with his own She seeks a diary that will confirm this fact and save her job at a small college by resulting in a publication Their attraction is irresistible and eventually consummated All the while Matt denies her the diary that will also expose the nefarious doings of the men in his family Running for public office to right some of those wrongs he cannot afford this revelation Matt also has political aspirations and it seems sometimes he puts himself first before Tamryn

    This was delightful I gave it a bit of a side eye when I found out our hero Matt had political aspirations but boy howdy if all politicians were like him I might not hate politics so much He's one of the good ones Two thumbs up for the very familiar small town south

    Rochon takes us to sleepy uaint Gauthier Louisiana where everybody knows your name where you come from and who you're sleeping with When Professor Tamryn West descends upon the town on a uest for answers about her past and a diary that could give her tenure at Boston's Brimley University the first person she meets is handsome rugged Matthew Gauthier the town's favorite son He shows up on a Ducati and rescues her from a busted radiator depositing her at her hotel Tamryn knows who Matthew is after all she's been trying to reach him for the past six months Matt on the other hand doesn't recognize the name of the new beauty in town and he's already in deep lust before he realizes that she wants information and details on the recent discovery of a stop on the historic Underground Railroad which just happens to be located under his law firm a Gauthier institutionDespite his attraction Matt can't share his past with Tamryn can't let her find out about the ugly sins past and present of the Gauthiers He's about to run for a Senate seat against a nasty mud slinging opponent and any scandal could ruin his chances As much as he wants to help Professor West secure her teaching position achieve tenure and make history with a book about how her great great great grandmother made history by creating a school for blacks with Matthew's great great great grandmother he can't let his secrets be known It could destroy everything he's worked for Rochon has uickly risen to the ranks of one of my favorite Harleuin Kimani writers Her stories are always varied and intriguing with a story line I can sink my teeth into and passion that draws me in and keeps me turning pages I'm a lover of history myself so I also enjoyed the lessons via the tours the old library archives at Xavier University the pockets of history around Gauthier and Rosemead where Adeline West was born and worked as a slave Since this is a Harleuin Romance I can't pass up the opportunity to present Yours Forever as a passionate love story that takes place in a romantic little town among two strangers destined to be together The attraction between Matt and Tamryn jumped off the page from the beginning and though Tamryn initially resisted it seemed like the wait was worth it I liked watching the sparks grow into animal lust and that lust grow into a love that would make a man risk his career so the woman he cared for could have what she's always wanted And in return she gave him what he's worked for his whole life Yours Forever is an enjoyable read I hope you'll pick it up when it's out February 18th from Harleuin Kimani

    “Yours Forever” by Farrah Rochon has been nominated by the Romance Writers of America as a RITA finalist – meaning that romance writers have judged her book to represent excellence in romance writing Matthew Gauthier of Gauthier Louisiana was born into a legacy of family secrets While he does everything for the town of Gauthier including running for state government he is haunted by the ghosts of his ancestors Matthew is such a wonderful hero and I love how he’s conflicted by wanting to do right for his town and his family Dr Tamryn West is a history professor using her summer vacation to research her own family past to help her tenuous faculty position back east She’s been trying to contact Matthew for months to get permission to do research on their family but takes matters into her own hands Tamryn is my type of heroine; smart ambitious and loves teaching Ms Rochon leaves no doubt why she was nominated for a RITA – her characters are believable strong with room to grow and she weaves in Louisiana and its history into the story until you swear it’s another character The pacing was fast and I couldn’t put the book down because I wasn’t sure how it was going to end Whew it was a nail biter My favorite scenes are when Tamryn enters the basement room for the first time Her reactions to the sense of history and meaning of the room gave me shivers I loved Rochon’s description of the small town of Gauthier and its citizens I definitely wouldn’t mind visiting again

Can the sins of the past Louisiana powerhouse attorney Matthew Gauthier has spent a lifetime safeguarding his prominent family's scandalous history So when Tamryn West makes it her mission to dig up the past Matthew must do everything in his power to stop her B. One thing I have to give Farrah Rochon is that she writes pretty easy to read and great contemporary romances Her heroes tend to be stand up errexcluding A Forever Kind of Love's Corey because cheating even in the past isn't my thing and confident but not cocky imo guys which is a nice change from alpha assholes This book was no differentMatthew Gauthier is an attorney and son of the founding family of Gauthier Lousiana His current goal is to run and win the state senate seat to benefit his little town Matt had ualities I generally really like in a hero He was confident and smooth he threw out plenty of double entendres though didn't go overboard imo and he respected a woman's word when she said no He also knew he wanted Tamryn early on and after a bit of delay he went for her when he couldn't deny his attraction He first wanted to avoid entanglement with Tamryn because she's a history professor who's been working on her own family's history for uite some time Her family happens to have a connection to his so she's been trying to contact him for the last six months but he's been doing everything he can to avoid her And then one day he finds her on the side of the road in a busted car because she was headed to his town and helps her out only later discovering that she's the professor who's been hounding him for monthsHowever there were some things I didn't like about him He's clearly far experienced than Tamryn although she's not a virgin so that's a plus He's said to be a ladies man and has dated plenty of women including ones from his small town two of whom the readers meet One of his exs Mariska is even said to have had a bad breakup with him but it's not explained what it was that happened I don't know why we had to meet them tbh because they didn't add anything to the book A plus is that he does say he's fiercely monogamous so he's not the player or cheating type but I don't know what that means for when he's single and whether he sleeps around or notAnd then we have Dr Tamryn West who's an African American history and women's studies professor at a university in Boston Like I mentioned she's been looking for information about her family's past After a stop on the Underground Railroad is discovered in Matt's family's law practice building she uncovers that her great great great grandmother Adeline had likely been a conductor in that very place She also wants to uncover proof in the form of a diary that her ancestor had worked to open the first school for black children in the US and had done so along with Matt's ancestor NicoletteUnlike Matt I don't recall there being much mentioned about Tamryn's dating history She mentions that her libido is too often ignored so I took that to mean that her dating history isn't all that long at least in comparison to Matt's Like Matt an ex of hers does make an appearance Her ex is Reid Hayes a co faculty member who she dated for about two years but they broke up after she helped him on a research project putting aside her own work for an entire year which gained him accolades and grants The problem He didn't credit her anywhere Unlike the appearances of Matt's exs however Reid does serve a purpose He is now the head of the history department at her university and because she doesn't have tenure it's pretty clear that Tamryn's job is on the line if she doesn't get this research project about her family doneAnd that where's the great conflict of the book comes in She needs proof about her family's involvement with this school in order to write this paper She finds things here and there but there's nothing concrete that connects Adelaide to it that she can find She needs Nicolette's journala journal that Matt happens to have He doesn't want to turn that journal over to her because it also contains his family's past wrong doings which would then hinder his run at the state senate seat And it would ruin his family's name in the town that they founded This was also why he avoided her calls and put her off for half a year And his conflict then centres around him choosing between the woman he was uickly falling in love with and the town he owed so much toWith the conflict I did find it believable He wanted to do what was best for his town which he felt he could do better as a senator but he also didn't know if he could hand damaging information about his family to Tamryn who was a stranger at this point I understood his dilemma and found it to be plausible The issue I had with it is that I didn't think it was that great of a secret It was his family's past transgressions with having to do with lining their pockets with money and stuff but I didn't think it was that great for it to be hovering over the entire book like a dark cloud I also think that part of it was because Matt beat himself up over it for the entire book feeling guilty as hell but then the author resolved it within a couple of pagesThe bigger issue for me was Matt keeping the diary a secret from Tamryn which she needed for her research He even tried to get her to stop her research at one point saying that maybe evidence of Adelaide's involvement in the school is because there really isn't any He felt like shit as he said it but he still said it She still presses on and doesn't stop but the betrayal is still there While at the end he does apologize to her and his apology was definitely heartfelt and not lacking I still felt he should've grovelled a bit At the same time that the above issue with his ancestors is resolved Tamryn is forgiving him I really didn't like that He spent the entire book lying through omission to her so I was expecting a bit And combine that with her previous betrayal with Reid so I was expecting far than just her understanding his dilemma and forgiving him as a resultWith the conflict while I felt things meandered through the story the conflict and resolution felt rushed and hurriedly resolved The book was building up to the major climax but then things came to a head in one chapter and were resolved in the next It was pretty dissatisfying I also don't like when things are kept a secret for so long especially as the reader but then it makes me go that's it when it's finally revealedHowever I really do like Rochon's writing and characters and will continue to read her books but I just wish the story itself was engaging and better plotted I also feel that if you're going to act like there's some deep dark secret that there actually should be Greed and corruption isn't great but it's fairly minor when you consider other transgressions that there could've possibly been However if it had been something worse I feel it would've started veering into irredeemable territory which I don't think the author wanted to do with the town's well loved son Matt BUT because the entire book kept going on about how bad his family's past was I felt disappointed when things were finally revealed
