Publisher's Summary

Can best friends find true love? What if your best friend is your adopted brother?

Griffin can’t fathom his life without Quincy, but he also can’t ignore the crazy sexual attraction buzzing between them.

When Quincy offers up a contract to determine if the sexual tension brewing between them is worth jeopardizing their nearly decade-long friendship, Griffin finds himself helpless to say no.

Will they lose everything they’ve found in each other, or will they seize the opportunity to turn their friendship into something even better?

Forever Better Together is a male/male opposites attract, friends-to-lovers story with delicious sexual tension, a sizzling hot striptease, and emotions guaranteed to punch you in the gut.

Narration makes it worth the listen

The narration on this one really brings the story to life and keeps it light and entertaining. The story itself is sweet romance with very Hallmark kind of vibes. Overall it's a fun listen.

Outstanding audiobook

Between the words of the author and the interpretation of the narrator I was left with a story that I will want to listen to again and again. This is a wonderfully sweet yet hot mm story. Quincy wasn't happy when his grandparents moved their new foster son into his room. But before long they developed a lasting friendship. They become the best of friends and did just about everything together especially after Quincy's grandparents adopted Griffin. At different times both Quincy and Griffin came to the realization that they were gay. Both have a sexual interest in each other but are afraid to act on it because they're afraid it could ruin their friendship. Luckily for them, they have two wise and loving grandparents. A. D. Ellis does an outstanding job of character and plot development. I only stopped listening to it when absolutely necessary. The narrator does an amazing job of portraying the emotions of these characters. I highly recommend this Audible book.

A.D. Ellis, one amazing Story teller.

I absolutely LOVED this book. Griffin and Quincy were so amazing together. While it wasn't so much in your face that Quincy was African American and Griffin was Caucasian, I liked that this book didn't play into the racial stereotypes that I've seen in a few other books. The "brother" kink, even though they were adopted brothers, was just the right amount when it came to the drama, for me at least. It was put out there but there wasn't a lot of drama surrounding it.

This book was well written, the characters were hashed out amazingly, and the world building was on fleck.

Once again, A.D. Ellis wowed me with an amazing story that I adored completely.

When it came to the narrator of this story, he was amazingly wonderful. The way he could change the voices, show the emotions through the intonations, and keeping the pace of the book was on point.

I highly recommend Forever Better Together.

Loved Griffen and Quincy

Quincy and Griffen are so sweet. They are adorable and funny. They truly care about each other. Griff is so insecure and sensitive, Quincy is protective and caring. I loved watching them discover this new facet to their relationship. I really enjoyed this book.

best friends to lovers

Forever Better Together is a beautifully written, enjoyable emotional story from beginning to end. When Griffin joined Quincy's family, as a foster child and had to share a room with him, little did the boys know that their journey to becoming best friends and future lovers had begun. I really enjoyed this coming of age story as Griffin and Quincy discover they really are better together. I love how accepting they are of each other and how they care for one another. I love the ending, just perfect. This is a story to enjoy again and again. Definitely recommend! Narrator Brad King does a fabulous job.

sweet book

Friends to lovers has always been my favorite trope and this one checks all the boxes with Griff and Quincy. I liked the way foster parents are portrayed in a positive light. The angsty parts are delicious. Gramma was good with advice and support. Lots of feels and growth. I enjoyed it. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review. The narrator did a great job bringing it to life.

Fantastic characters

This had some fantastic characters and there was so much turmoil that this certainly was a roller coaster of a book in the. Very best way. My suggestion would if you want to read this one, pick all those horrid house work jobs that you have been putting off. Get your head phones and listen o this story while you are doing them as this will keep you entertained for the whole time its playing.

Best friends and adopted brothers...

Quincy and Griffin have their lives intertwined when Griffin was adopted by Quincy’s grandparents. Griffin has suffered and his life changed with Mama and Papa. He and Q shared their bedroom as kids and as young adults go to the same college. They discover their love. I like that Q is so understanding of G’s tastes and choices. Love it that he lets him put his fabulous make up on him. Great narration and a heartfelt story.

Forever Better Together

I really enjoyed listening to this book. It was very easy to fall in love with Q and G. They started off as friends and grew together to become more. This book had some great Disney references too.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4-5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, I’m over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Sweet MM romance.

Such a sweet MM romance, however there are some heated scenes. Young guys growing up together and realizing separately that they are gay. Dreams do come true even though you don’t know exactly how it’s going to happen. I really enjoyed these characters. The narration was great although they made their voices sound a little young. I definitely recommend this book.

Loved the ebook, loved the audio!

It's been just over a year since I read Forever Better Together and I was so happy to get the opportunity to listen to and review a copy of the recently released audiobook. I've listened to one other audiobook performed by Brad King (His Reluctant Cowboy, also by A.D. Ellis). I loved his performance then and I loved it now. He does some really great voices for the main characters when they were young and then later as college age kids. He also does great voices for the supporting characters – and there are quite a few.

Forever Better Together is a a good story that spans a lot of years and it has a several different tropes to it. It's a little bit taboo (adopted brothers), it's friends-to-lovers, it's new adult (college age) and it's also opposites attract.

One of the things I loved about the story was how supportive Quincy's family was. They took Griffin in as a foster child and ended up adopting him. When Quincy and Griffin came out (not at the same time) Momma and Pops continued to love them both and later even encouraged their relationship.

Forever Better Together was enjoyable, kept my attention and caused a few tears to flow – a sure sign that it was a great story for me.

A copy of this audiobook was provided to me but my review was voluntary and not influenced by the author.

A super sweet coming of age story!

I loved everything about this book! I loved that Quincy and Griff connected almost instantly from the moment they met as 10-years-old kids. Their friendship and (sort-of) brotherhood is epic and their bond unbreakable. So when they start to have deeper feelings for each other as teens, they both are scared to take the next step for fear of ruining what they have. But they soon understand that ultimately they are better together.
I love how they often communicate in Disney quotes, and the incredible amount of love, support and understanding they have for each other and for and from the other members of their extended and a bit odd family.

Brothers, besties, boyfriends

Story: A rivetting best friends to lovers story! I loved how the progression of the relationship was approached here and how much background we get! It's a touching, comprehensive tale of a beautiful connection maturing together with the MCs!
A.D. Ellis did a great job not only with plotting the story, but also with creating amazing secondary characters that made the story so much more complete!
Narration: I liked Brad King's narration overall. He has a pleasant voice and the narration was easily understandable.
