I found out about this book when I was given the opportunity to ARC read the second book and I wanted to go back and read the series from the beginning... so watch for my review of book two, coming tomorrow, but for now, Forever Mann needs to be added to your tbr and here's why:
From the blurb:
My forever man? That man needed to be able to unpack some baggage. I did not just mean what I had carried around with me while I worked abroad for the past five years, or even the rest of my life that was packed up and waiting in a storage facility for my return to the states. No, my baggage may have been luxury brand, but it was also the stuff of nightmares. My forever man had to make me trust him, make me share my secrets and my past—and none of things were packed light.
Any man who could have been my forever man needed a relationship not only with me, but with my family and the town of Bear Valley, as well. He needed to fit in with the dynamic that existed between my three brothers and me; he had to love Bear Valley, Colorado, as much as I did. Not only that, but he had to fit me, enough that I could share who I really was. The chances that my forever man existed, much less would stumble into Bear Valley were about as good as me skiing competitively again, which meant exactly zero.
⚠ This is a second edition that has been significantly revised. ⚠
Book one of this series, Forever Mann, and book two, Real Mann, are enjoyed best when read in order. The series is intended for mature audiences only, 18-plus.Bear Valley is a contemporary romance, there are no Bear shifters in Bear Valley. Forever Mann has elements of hurt-comfort, sexy times, a guaranteed HEA, no cheating or sharing. Trigger warning: does contain description of a prior manipulative/abusive relationship of one MC. There is some on-page description of being in an abusive/manipulative relationship.
Red's Book Reads Review:
Wow, Forever Mann was a lot more emotional than I thought it would be!
Perrin has returned to the US after five years working abroad and is settling in Bear Valley. Jack is the eldest son in the Mann family and runs a number of the family businesses in town. Both have secrets and emotional trauma but can they work through this together and have a chance at forever? I loved the depth of emotion and the detail that is there in both Jack and Perrin’s history.
There may be triggers for some people through some of the historic trauma both men have gone through but this is such a good book. I was blown away by how detailed Forever Mann was and how much emotion was in the pages. Absolutely amazing and will definitely make sure I read the rest of this series to find out how the rest of the Mann brothers find love.
