Forever With You - RWB - Teaser 1



In the irresistibly sexy series from #1 New York Times bestselling author Jennifer L. Armentrout, two free spirits find their lives changed by a one-night stand…

Some things you just believe in, even if you’ve never experienced them. For Stephanie, that list includes love. It’s out there. Somewhere. Eventually. Meanwhile she’s got her job at the mixed martial arts training center and hot flings with gorgeous, temporary guys like Nick. Then a secret brings them closer, opening Steph’s eyes to a future she never knew she wanted—until tragedy rips it away.

Nick’s self-assured surface shields a past no one needs to know about. His mind-blowing connection with Steph changes all that. As fast as he’s knocking down the walls that have kept him commitment-free, she’s building them up again, determined to keep the hurt—and Nick—out. But he can’t walk away. Not when she’s the only one who’s ever made him wish for forever . . .




I cradled my drink as Cam sauntered back to the pool tables. My mind wasn’t made up on the whole visiting them thing yet. Maybe I would. Maybe I wouldn’t.

            “Want another rum and coke?”

            My lips curled up at the sound of Nick’s rich, deep voice. We’d been chatting on and off since I plopped my butt down on the stool, and he had seemed happy that I was there.

            Total bonus points lottery with this guy.

“I’m good, but thanks.” The last thing I wanted to be was drunk. I smiled at him, pleased when his heavily hooded gaze dipped again. “Are you guys usually this busy on the weekend?”

            I could see that small talk was something Nick excelled at, which made sense, considering his occupation. He was an equal opportunity charmer. Women flocked to him at the bar. The other bartender, the girl with the pink glasses, seemed to take it all in stride.

“Not sure if you really call this busy, but Saturdays usually bring a larger crowd.” He glanced down the bar before continuing. “So you went to school with them?” he asked, jerking his chin in the direction Cam had roamed off to.

“Yeah.” Leaning forward, I placed my elbows on the bar. “I had no idea they had connections here. Total surprise.”

“Small world,” he said, echoing my earlier thought. “But you’re not very close with them.”

It was a statement, not a question. “What makes you think that?”

“Well, if you were, I guess you’d be over there with them. Or …”

Nick was observant. “Or what?”

            One side of his lips curled up as he folded his arms across his chest. The movement drew my attention. I was such a visual creature. Not that anyone would blame me right now. The black shirt he wore stretched around well-defined biceps. “Or you’d rather spend the time with me.”

            The twisty motion in my belly cranked up a notch. “Am I that transparent?”

            “In the best possible way.” He picked up a bottle. “I’m glad you did stop by. Every time the door opened last night, I looked up and hoped it was you.”

            “Is that so?”

            “I speak the truth.” His smile was lazy. “Did you finish unpacking?”


            “Were there any more rat bastard combinations?”

            I laughed. “There were a few more.”

            “Kind of mad I missed out on them.”

            “There’s always later.” I toyed with my glass as I met and held his stare. “So, Nick, do you have a last name?”

            “Blanco,” he replied after a brief hesitation. “Do you?”

            “Keith.” I grinned as he unfolded those arms. “I have another question for you.”

            Moving in, he placed his hands on the bar. “Ask away.”

            “Do you have a girlfriend?” My breath caught a little when he leaned in suddenly. Our mouths were close enough that we were breathing the same tiny patch of oxygen. “Or a boyfriend?”

            Nick didn’t bat an eyelash. “Nope to both. How about you?”

            Bonus points explosion!

            “None,” I said, welcoming the tingle that swirled down my spine as his breath warmed my lips.

            He tilted his head to the side, lining up his mouth with mine with just a fraction of an inch between us. I started to feel a little flushed. “You have plans tonight, Stephanie Keith?” he asked, voice deeper and rougher.

            I shook my head as my pulse tripped all over itself in a happy little dance.

            Nick’s grin spread into the kind of smile I knew left a trail of women in its wake. “You do now.”

  2. Julie Bickham

    I have best friends with my best friend for 33 years. The best memory was my wedding day she was my maid of honor. It meant so much to me.

  3. Karen Mikusak

    I’ve moved around a lot in my lifetime and have never really had a good friend. Sad but true.

  4. Judy Thomas

    I love catching up with friends that I have not seen for years.

  5. Chanpreet

    Making a friend at the age of 7. We were besties for 6 years before she passed away from complications due to cancer.

  6. Sherry Hoernig

    I have a LOT of different memories of the good times I’ve had w/those whom I consider to be my dearest friends, but my favorite memory is of Christmas Day 1990. It’s not really a fun memory but, it truly speaks of a strong, & true friendship. My boyfriend of 1 1/2 years broke up w/me 2 weeks before Christmas that year because he had met someone whom he had fallen in love with 2 weeks prior to our breakup. Not only had he fallen in love with this woman, but they were married on Christmas Eve that same year.
    It was a very hard time for me, as I had loved him deeply, & didn’t even see it coming. On Christmas Day, my best friend called me around 10:00am to wish me a Merry Christmas & see how I was holding up. We had never really spent a lot of time talking on the phone, (we were usually hanging out together) but, that day, she was on the phone with me for 6 or 7 hours straight. She made me laugh, she cried with me, she comforted me, & she helped me get through the hardest Christmas (any day of my life actually) I had to live through. I don’t know what I would have done without her support to get me through it.
    We have since made a lot of changes in our lives, one of which puts us 8 hours apart, but we still remain close friends, even though we dont talk very often. She is still my dearest friend, and there isn’t anything I wouldn’t do for her. The real kicker on this story? She is my children’s Stepmother, & a truly awesome one at that. :) :) :)

  7. Christine
