However, if you’ve read the series up until this point my advice would be to see it out and read book five. If nothing else it provides some sense of closure.
This is the fifth book. I do highly recommend that you read them in order. They aren't just friends, they are a family and everyone is in every book.
This is Liam and Josie. But we do get an update on Yvie and Xander!! I have to say, I'm so happy about that update. I felt like their novella wasn't finished and I was wondering how everything worked out for them!
4225 West is tanking in sales and concerts. They need to revive themselves. They're all family men now. But when they find out the Metro is failing, and will be closing, they know they have to head to L.A. to help Trixie out. She was there to give them their first shot. It's time for them to help her out.
Liam and Josie have some things to work out while he's away. With an unauthorized biography coming out, based off of Sam's diary, Josie learns a lot. Even though she should have never read it.
I love the change with Bianca. And how this book turned out.
I do wonder if they ever figured out where this "author" came from. Who sent her the diary? I think it was Sam's dad.
I absolutely love this series.
My advice to readers: when you read this, carve out some time. You are not going to want to stop. Also - you DEFINITELY need to have read at LEAST Forever my Girl, if not the whole Beaumont series.
We pick up with the Beaumont gang essentially where we left them. The guys are all happily coupled up and enjoying the family life in Beaumont. Everything is going great, except that their music career is suffering. So the guys decide to head to LA to get back into the scene and jump start their career.
Before the guys left Beaumont, they found out that someone was writing an unauthorized biography about Liam. It will detail the years from when he left Beaumont to when he went back. Liam likes keeping his past in his past and his private life private, so he is very upset about this, and hopes that Josie will not read the book, as he and the guys tell the girls to ignore the press and the things they have to say. I'll have to tell Josie about this book and pray that she doesn't want to read it. Nothing good can come from a book written by a journalist... one that I don't ever remember meeting.
However - that is not quite what happens. While they are in LA the guys encounter some old friends, some more welcome back in their lives than others. Liam starts to question everything, his career, his family, and what path to take.
There are a few other surprises thrown in there, but you will just have to read it to find out.
So, I thought this was a great end to the Beaumont series. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to give both Josie and Liam a good shake a few times - but isn't that what makes a good story? You feel connected to the characters and you get frustrated with their actions, you are happy when they are happy, and your heart hurts when they are sad. I also just devoured this story. I HAD to know what happened, so I read it in one day. I just could not put it down.
I loved that it was told in both Josie and Liam's POVs and without both sides the story definitely would not have been complete.

As I write this review it is so hard to keep it spoiler free and I hope, I do not only the book, but the author, Heidi McLaughlin, justice with it, so apologies for vagueness.
What a great first paragraph. I was giddy with excitement reading it, but then as the chapter progressed something was thrown into the mix to make me go back and read it all again, just to make sure I hadn't missed out on an important bit due to my excitement. As the story progresses we definitely see Noah in a different light, he's older and not so happy with parental displays of affection, for him and for each other. This new change is something he is not happy about, and feels like this is a change for Liam and Josie to have a chance at something Noah didn't have.
4225 West are failing, they are losing sales, popularity, and money. They have to go back to LA to not only help and old friend out, but also get themselves back in the spotlight, but this only brings up bad memories for Josie, of Liam leaving her and not coming back. This was emotional to read, I know the history of this break up, who was at fault, and what happened. But with everything going on Josie is unable to go with Liam, she is stuck at home due to other commitments and is finding it hard to deal with the publicity surround Liam and an upcoming book. But it also gives Josie the chance to step back and think about her relationship with Liam, and what it could have been like if he had stayed with her.
He gave me the opportunity to grow up and find the me I needed to be without him guiding our path. It just sucks how it all happened.
Just when we thought Sam was out the picture, she back with a vengeance, this time in a tell all book, taken from her diary, that is being published by a journalist. It holds every secret, every singe thing that went on between Sam and Liam, s*** is about to hit the fan, and it won't be pretty at all. I really want the slap the journalist that thought ti would be a good idea to publish this book. To add to the mixture, Mr Moreno is back, determined he is going to make some money off the band, or off the members individually. Is Liam strong enough to fight a war from both sides whilst keeping the band together and his wife happy.
Liam and Josie have already had a lot to deal with, and they do not need the past flung in thier face. With Liam in LA helping out an old friend, it's Josie who see's the book first, and all her old fears and hurt comes back to haunt her. To make matters worse, when she goes to confront Liam about it, she is met with his past, and his present, all presented neatly on stage for her.
One thing I love about My Kind of Forever were the alternate chapters that give Liam a glimpse into his life if he has of stayed with Josie when she was pregnant with Noah. He gets to see what his career, his life, and his future would have looked like, and it's not exactly a bed of roses. But this also makes him truly grateful for what he has and the decisions he made, it also helps them compromise on the future of 4225 West, and the future of thier family.
What a sad, but amazing end to this series. I am sad to see this series end, but My Kind of Forever ensures it goes out with a bang. You don't want to miss this finale.
We are back with Liam and Jojo as we follow the trials and tribulations of their everyday lives.
A 5 star read for me and definitely not one to miss!!
The Beaumont series must be read in order!
I loved this book from start to finish, this book had me in an emotional rollercoaster. I thought Liam and Josie where going to break up.
I also like me get the conclusion of Xander and Yvie's story.
I love this series and love this family.
