Publisher's Summary

We all have that one person who we know are meant just for us. The one who we tell our innermost secrets to, share our joy, every triumph, every loss, every fail with. That doesn't always mean that we get to be with them, but it is a driving force that keeps us pressing forward, trying to conquer the unconquerable, always searching for ways to beat the odds. For Braxton Caulder, that person is Allie Johnson. Growing up as best friends, Braxton never thought they would find themselves so far apart, but that's exactly what happens when Allie decides to go to college in California, leaving Alabama and Braxton behind.

Two young adults trying to find their way in life. Braxton knows what he wants, to be an architect like his dad, and Allie. Allie has no idea of how Braxton feels about her, he knows she wants more out of life in bigger and better places than their small town. He doesn't want to risk their friendship and so he clings to the hope that one day she'll realize how deep his feelings run. Until then, he can only be there for her.

Allie Johnson has been dreaming of getting her biomedical engineer degree with a focus on chemistry research, so that she can work on finding a cure for lupus. Her best friend, Braxton, lost his mother due to complications when he was ten. Allie wants to make a difference and she knows that for her, Gardendale, Alabama, isn't where she needs to be. She attends college in California at USC, 2000 miles away from home. When trouble finds her, beats her down, and threatens to ruin everything she has worked for, she realizes the one person who she has pushed away is the one she needs the most. Time and distance separate the two friends, but can it separate two hearts?

What?????

I got this book via audiobook boom. I can only hope that this version of the book is a review copy and that many of the major editing errors will be corrected. The narrator made so many mistakes and mispronunciations that it was hard getting through the story. There wee also so many times that different tenses were used in the same sentence. This was a sweet love story and showed how a real man could be the best friend and your lover as well. In spite of any circumstances. A sweet romance that makes one believe in true love. The narrator was also so sweet that I fell asleep several times and had to replay several parts because of missed sections.

Emotional Unconditional Love Story

This was an emotional contemporary romance. The story is told in the Braxton's POV. I don't know any guys that would stick around after the way Allie behaved. There was quite a bit of heartfelt moments. There was plenty of drama.

The author did an ok job bringing the story to life. The story was somewhat predictable and a bit slow. A little more emotional than I'm used to. I did enjoy this audiobook but it was not something I would want to listen to a second time. I prefer happier romances with some humor & mishaps.

Braxton. He has a heart of gold.

What does Giselle Lumas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I think Giselle Lumas was able to convey the emotions in the book.

I found this to be a clean story of hope and unconditional love. Very enjoyable story. Both the author and narrator have talent. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Enjoyable story, narration needs work

Would you consider the audio edition of Finding My Forever to be better than the print version?

Unfortunately not. While I was able to listen to the story all the way through, the inconsistent narration did start to become annoying. There were pauses where you would expect a new chapter but ut was not.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I enjoyed both characters. They were well developed and you were able to get to know rhem both.

What three words best describe Giselle Lumas’s voice?

Bland, inconsistent, no emotion

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

Best friends to lovers

Any additional comments?

It honestly felt like the narrator had not read the book before she did the narration. <br/> found the narrator inconsistent in her reading. At times she seemed to drag on, that is very slow in reading whereas at the others she read flowingly and at what could be talking speed.<br/>There could have been more expression in the reading and if reading in a different character voice there needs to be more consistency.

Good Story

Even though this is a standalone, I'm glad that I had already read as Finding Strength as I believe that helped in understanding the characters.

This was a good story and a good listen, Giselle Lumas did a good job of narrating.

Now they are grown..

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Yes for me because I read book one and just had to know what happened after it.

Would you recommend Finding My Forever to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes I would because most that I know are like me and love a good romance.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narration was a bit odd. I listen to a lot of audibles and this is the first where there was like a pause? often and it seemed like the chapter or paragraph was over but it was just a pause. There was also some static noise in the background I thought was my device but I tried 3 different ones. There was also a few mishaps so I want to assume it was the book needing editing maybe?

Was Finding My Forever worth the listening time?

Again yes for me as I wanted to know what happened after book one and this book didn't disappoint. We get a strong story.

Finding My Forever

Finding My Forever
: Shevawn Michelle


This was a first time listen to this author. The characters were believable and fairly well fleshed out in this coming of age romance. The storyline followed what I expected to happen with a minor exception that I thought would happen but didn't. It was a decent story told from the male protagonist point of view.


The narration was well done for a book being read. Giselle Lumas has a pleasant voice, but there was no differential between characters. It's my personal preference to hear differences in characters, but it was listenable.

Sweet and emotional

It isn't often that you get a romance written from a man's perspective. It makes for a very interesting read. That said, the story has quite a bit of unnecessary detail that takes away from the overall experience. Some of it could have been edited out.

Allie and Braxton's story is very sweet. Two childhood best friends face the challenges of separation and much more. Initially it is a struggle to appreciate Allie's character and choices but it does work out with love and friendship.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
