Forever, Again by Skylar Cates

Whether this is your first Skylar Cates novel or you've read the Shelby Beach series, you'll fall in love with Forever, Again and already be planning your re-read as soon as you finish your first one... 

From the blurb:

Their lives didn't turn out as they'd imagined as boys, but they never forgot each other.

Personal trainer Oliver Knox is strong and graceful, dedicated to his clients, and fiercely loyal to friends and family. But the thing he takes pride in the most, his business, is failing.

Single father and entrepreneur Nico Kastellanos knows success is hard-won and tries to give back to those who, like him, have to fight for their dreams. His one regret is how things ended with his childhood best friend. Their friendship and their secret kisses linger in his mind.

When Oliver unwittingly hires Nico’s PR firm to breathe life into his failing gym, their connection rekindles instantly. The chemistry is potent, the memories heart-wrenching. They're no longer awkward, troubled kids. They are men who know what—and who—they want.

Will Oliver and Nico finally get their long-overdue forever together, or will the ghosts from their past continue to haunt them?

Heather's Review:

Forever, Again is a beautiful read that has just the right amount of angst, copious back story and all the good feels that you want from a romance... and you get the added bonus of Nico's baby daughter!  Well written and well paced, you know just enough of their shared past to keep wondering... and as Nico and Oliver get closer, the past unravels further... bringing them closer still.

It's certainly not smooth sailing, but that's what makes the story that much more memorable and endearing.  I've read the entire series, but Forever, Again can easily be read standalone.
