Publisher's Summary

When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later Axel is astonished to spot his first love's face in the crowd of a college basketball game he's watching on television - at a school that has just offered him a job. It's a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly he can't wait to get there.

Cax can't believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he's still just as drawn to him as ever. But he can't let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.

    "✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫"

    I was hoping for more of Caleb and Josh in this book but I still enjoyed this book very much. This is absolutely a stand alone so if you haven't read book 1, you should because it was amazing but you don't have to to understand this one.

    I love that all of the MM books I've read by Sarina Bowen have characters that have known each other forever, that always helps me fall in love quickly with the love story. These two have some serious obstacles to work around to be together but they handle it beautifully. I love that this book had zero self created drama and that ending had me swooning!!! Great book!!

    The narration was great, I'm a huge fan of Teddy Hamilton so I knew I'd love the narration but the were both great.

    "Disapointed"
    Would you try another book from Sarina Bowen and/or Dake Bliss and Teddy Hamilton ?

    I have listened to Teddy Hamilton and enjoyed his narration before I enjoyed his part in this book. I did not like Drake Bliss at all - which can make or break a story form me


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sarina Bowen again?

    I usually adore her books so I was disappointed that this was not "love " for me


    How could the performance have been better?

    Drake - the part of Cax was flat and emotionless - I felt no connection between him and Axel.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    I was interested in the story but just lost interest after about 30%, not sure if it was all the narration or the OTT story line

    "Forever doesn't come easy"

    It's always different when you read a book versus listening to it or watching it in theaters. This is one of those stories that work well in every medium. It's just that good

    "I REALLY LOVED THIS ONE!! GREAT STORY!!!"
    If you could sum up Hello Forever in three words, what would they be?

    Beautiful, Sexy, Awesome!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    The love these 2 guys had for each other...they were childhood sweethearts...they were meant to be!! LOVED!!!


    Have you listened to any of Dake Bliss and Teddy Hamilton ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have...this one was better than book 1...Older characters and they were more settled into each other I think...It just clicked better!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Both!! My heart is so full now!!


    Any additional comments?

    Axel and Cax!!! Ohhh these poor young men just wanted to be together..to love each other freely and Cax's dad was a total D Bag...he tried everything to keep them apart..threats first.and when it didnt work...Violence....But true love is unbreakable....and in the end it prevailed...I love Sarina Bowen books!! I need more!!

    TOTALLY RECOMMEND!!!!

    "It was pretty good"

    Teddy Hamilton did excellent as always and I think he pretty much saved this one. This wasn't Dake's best performance and I felt like he was reading to me rather than performing. It could have had a little more Schmexy scenes, but it was a pretty short listen so I guess it was ok. Not as good as Leaving Paradise, but still worth a credit. Sweet story of love overcoming all.

    "Absolutely loved it!!!"

    Amazing read and wonderful, heartfelt narration.
    Sarina Bowen has once again brought me to tears as I attempt to compose a review worthy of her beautiful words put into a story that captures the true spirit of what love truly is meant to be like. This story was emotionally charged and beautifully scripted. I was transported to New England once again and I was left with a full heart and many many tears. It's a wonderful journey of firsts and lasts experienced by true soul mates destined to become one.

    Teddy Hamilton - you continue to astound me with your ability to have me giggling and then sobbing almost at the same time. You truly are a treasure and your emotions, smiles and heartfelt words jump from my ear buds into my heart and soul. Dake Bliss - wow, please, please do more narration. You are a gift to the audio world!

    "Great second book!"

    I really enjoyed this book. Cax and Axel are really great together! IMHO, I could have done without the teenagers campout flashback but otherwise a great book! It was good to catch up with Josh and Caleb and I hope Jason gets a book.
