Review

Patricia Paris has written a delightful cast of characters that have good times, bad times, and some real punches to the gut that will have readers holding back tears. This is a great read for those looking for a contemporary romance with a healthy dose of depth.  - San Francisco Book Review

More About the Author

Thank you for stopping by to read a little bit about me and my books. I write romance novels about strong heroines and the men who love them.
I live in the Chesapeke Bay area of Maryland, USA, with my husband, John, and cat, Shiloh. When not writing, my other loves are gardening, sailing, exercising my culinary muscle, and especially, spending time with family and friends.
My Glebe Point Series, This Time Forever, Letters To Gabriella, and the 2015 release, Return To Glebe Point, are set in the small town of Glebe Point, Maryland and revolve around the tight-knit Morrison Family.
My other novels, A Murderous Game and the 2014 release, Run Rachael Run, are sexier, sassier, and have an element of suspense.
I am, unashamedly, a true romantic at heart. I believe everyone deserves a happy ending and strive to deliver that to my readers, every time.

As an aspiring writer myself, I read a lot of books in different genres. As a research project for my first novel I read books that covered the mulitple-genre story I was telling (mystery-romance-drama) and I subsequently read a couple of romance novels by well-known authors. I have to say that, as far as I'm concerned, Patricia has absolutely nailed the romance novel style. I was very impressed. She writes with confidence and some of her descriptions, particularly the passionate scenes between the two main characters, were excellent almost to the point of sending me off to the bathroom for a cold shower! Or, at the very least. it made me consider dating again.

It's love at first sight for Blake and Delaney and, early on in the story, the expected happens. However, it's what occurs beyond that which makes the story interesting and engaging. I'm not going to give anything away but suffice it to say that circumstances tear the lovers apart. The author then did an excellent job of maintaining the tension and conflict between two people you very much want to get togther. Will they or won't they?

Add an adorable kid, a puppy and an ending that had me alternately laughing and crying and you've got a book well worth investing your time and money in.

I, for one, will be reading another Patricia Paris novel very soon.

Set in a cozy New England town, this story serves up all the qualities of a good read. Delaney comes to the quiet coastal community claiming to be on a culinary mission, but she's actually searching Blake's heart for answers on the behalf of another. When Blake meets Delaney, it seems like "such a perfect fit. Like a piece the piece that fit his in an intricate puzzle". Little does he know that the beautiful, red-haired Delaney has come to his hometown to undo what he searches for. Romantic interest turns to turmoil when Delaney's motives are revealed. In the end, only one thing can bring the two back together.
"This Time Forever" has all the ingredients of a classic romance. It is a beautifully written romance with the perfect touch of spice. Readers are certain to fall in love with Delaney and Blake the moment they meet them.

"This Time Forever" is a beautiful love story that will find its way into your heart almost immediately. Patricia Paris' phrasing and diction paints a tantalizing portrait that maintains a perfect balance, where a sexy romp meets a heartwarming tale.

Paris is a master at creating memorable characters that possess amazing depth. Her vivid depiction of the handsome male lead, Blake is so brilliant, one could almost imagine him stepping off the page. While he's both vulnerable and self-assured, Blake's intriguing paradox is undeniably irresistible. Delaney, the main female character is equally fascinating. In Delaney, Paris has created Blake's perfect female counterpart. She is smart, beautiful and caring, and Blake brings out the fun, fiery side of her personality. There is so much more to each of them than initially meets the eye. Blake and Delaney find themselves in a complex, life-changing dilemma in which their feelings for each other are only part of the story.

Their story is captivating and enthralling, always keeping the reader anticipating the next page with avid curiosity. Paris has such an eloquent way of fashioning her words that you find yourself marveling at the richness of them. I laughed, I cried and didn't want the book to end.

I think what ruined this book for me is that it is not very believable. Common sense knows that a man who never met his son can't just go pick him up from the only people the child knows and expect to keep him, and to keep away from the former family forever. This would be held up in the legal system and rights would still be granted for visitation for the family. I felt like there was something missing with both Blake and Delaney, I think more of a back story would have helped something...their love "connection" was just kind of thrown in in the begining and it really didn't develop...it was like she came to town and bam they are together..I felt like more time and detail could have made this a great story. Also the book could benefit from good editing. At times I would have to re-read certain parts as the wrong words were used and it just didn't flow smoothly. Although frustrating, I can look over that but I really wish it was more believable. I did read it all just because I hate to not finish something I started but I don't really get all the 5 star reviews....

At the time I'm writing this review, there are 13 other reviews, all 5 stars. I think they must all be friends with the author, because that's the only way someone could say this book is good. First of all, it is not well written. Punctuation is terrible - either incorrectly used or missing altogether, and so many sentences are poorly written that I found it hard to focus on the story. But these problems could have been solved with better editing. The bigger problem is that the main characters are unlikable. For the first half of the story, Delaney makes such terrible decisions that I was really disgusted with her. For the second half, Blake's behavior - while warranted at first, given Delaney's prior behavior - is downright cruel.
Once I've started a book I hate to stop reading it, which is the only reason I made it through this book. Thank goodness it was free on my Kindle.
