Publisher's Summary

Love, like everything in the universe, cannot be destroyed. But over time it can change.

The hot Texas nights were lonely for Ben before he met Tim Wyman, the man he would one day marry. Now, 20 years later, everything is perfect. Isn't it? 

As Ben struggles with guiding his adopted son toward happiness, he begins to question his own path in life. Tim is little help, pulled away by artistic success and faced with temptation, but true love should be able to overcome such obstacles...if only their struggles ended there.  

Something Like Forever is a love story spanning a lifetime and beyond, as two men discover what it means to be friends, lovers, and so much more.

5 stars are not enough

How does one finish such an emotional series? I had that question on mind when Forever was announced. What will happen to Ben, Tim and family. Where will my beloved Jace fall? what will Jay do?
I need not have worried, because Forever answered everything. It had joy, laughter, love and buckets of tears but every single was worth it... heck there were happy tears at times too. Thank you Jay for the fitting finale and Kevin R. Free for the superb narration, you made them all come to life.

I'm not crying, you're crying

Uuuuggghhh... after so much fun, excitement, heartache and heartbreak, the good, bad and ugly it leaves me in somewhat somber mood. I really wouldn't mind hearing more about this wonderful cast of characters for years to come but all good things must end eventually I guess.

All good things ......

Must come to an end . One last love story with the two characters that have had a profound impact on my life. Love , laughter, and emotion are all tied up in Jay’s last novel of an amazing series. To be a gay 30 something man growing up in a time that overlapped the timeline of events of the series is the best I have ever came across. Kevin, as always, does an amazing job with the characters and performance.

Beautiful Finale!

If you could sum up Something Like Forever in three words, what would they be?

Eternal love story

What was one of the most memorable moments of Something Like Forever?

As a dog owner, it broke my heart when Chinchilla, Tim's "little princess" became sick, and passed away in Tim's arms.

Which character – as performed by Kevin R. Free – was your favorite?

Definitely the character Marcello Maltese. Marcello is so delightfully naughty and pompous, but with a heart of gold. Kevin R. Free seems to have the most fun with this character as each word from Marcello is purred to perfection.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Love never dies.

Any additional comments?

I'm still crying. The characters of Ben and Tim are the greatest love story ever told - I'm serious. I fell in love with both of these characters when I first read Jay Bell's first novel in the series: Something Like Summer. The series has been a long one, but I really believe this is the best book of them all. Forever had so many twists and turns, so many edge-of-you-seat moments, it was such an awesome experience to listen to. But oh, the story of the love between then and all they endured. I know all things must come to an end. But I didn't want the story of Ben and Tim to end. Not now. Not ever.
