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.

PERFECT END TO A BEAUTIFUL SERIES. This is my favorite series, and I love the characters. Jay Bell created a world I wish I was in. My heart hurts and my cheeks are wet with tears, but this is a perfect end to a beautiful series.

Tim's Poortrayal

I absolutely loathe the way the narrator portrayed Tim and made him sound like a dumb jock with a nasal problem from past drug abuse. Everything else was awesome! LOVE these stories and super said they are coming to an end.

Good Things have to Come to an End

I did not want this series to end. I have grown attached to these characters and in fell in love with this universe that Bell has created. To fully understand this book you have to read all the books in this series. I bought all the physical copies of all these books because I loved them all. I highly recommend this whole series to everyone, Remember you have to start with Summer.

Incredible

I’ve listened to all eleven Books in this series and all except book ten were off the charts! Ten is still worth listening to. Best romance series I’ve had the honor to listen to. Something Like Forever will make you laugh out loud, cry and celebrate with the characters. The ending was perfect and beyond romantic. Awesome job Jay Bell!

An Absolutely Wonderful Book!

This book, I believe the 11th installment in the Something Like series, is so wonderful. It perfectly wraps up this lovely story with all of its ins and outs and goes farther beyond in the stories than you would expect! I wish these stories would never end but I’m sure we will expect more great things from author Jay Bell!

Huge disappointment

I really should have sampled this but as Something Like Summer was so well written and exceptionally well performed this seemed a no brainer to jump onto the final sequel picking up the story of Tim and Ben.

First off the performance is Terrible. How can the narrator have not been given a copy of Something Like Summer to reference. The character voice for Tim is distinctly Homer Simpson so unless later in the book it transpires Tim sustained a mild brain injury this is just a total misjudgement by the narrator. It's embarrassing to listen to. It's like a really fake dad voice put on by a child mocking a parent. The other characters are in the camp / 'go girlfriend' camp which again is vast miles apart from the voicing of the first book. Its impossible to believe the characters are the same.

And from a story perspective it has an edge of an amateur smutty fantasy at times. Perhaps this is a sequel too far and the author is just fatigued by what to write so made it inappropriately lewed in the hope readers get a cheap thrill.

I can't bear to continue with it. I'm 2
Hours in and haven't groaned so often at poor performance and writing in my life. Very unlikely I will persevere to the end and if I could get a refund and buy something else I would.

dreadful

this was like something written by a teenager. over dramatic & painful. I really struggled to finish. this would have been better as a short epilogue.
