The Feeling of Forever (Love Unplugged)
by Jamie Howard
Juliet St. Clair has spent her life under Hollywood’s spotlight. While being America’s favorite girl next door has had its perks, having to testify against her stalker to put him behind bars certainly wasn’t one of them. But when she thinks about walking away from it all, she can’t help remembering the enormous pile of medical bills her family is drowning under. Bills that just keep on coming.
Felix Donovan had it all–stunning good looks, gorgeous women, and a spot as the drummer to a band that’s sitting pretty at the top of the charts. Until one life-altering decision left him paralyzed from the waist down. He doesn’t know whether to laugh or cry when he wins this year’s Sexiest Man award, but the one thing he immediately does is send out a Non-disclosure agreement. Hiding his condition from the public is hard as hell, but he’s not ready to face the world while he’s still struggling to accept his new reality.
Except this year’s Sexiest Woman–Juliet St. Clair–never looks at him with pity, only desire. But falling for Juliet means a permanent spot in the tabloids, a decision Felix isn’t sure he’s ready to make. And when Juliet’s stalker re-emerges from her past, Felix’s secret isn’t the only thing at stake, it could cost Juliet her life.
Hot guy in hot wheels with a pair of hot drumsticks embroiled in a hot romance. That’s Felix Donovan for you. Once he was a playboy and had no qualms whatsoever about love and women. But an accident had paralyzed him from waist down and soon he wasn’t so sure of himself. Until he met one of the hottest and sexiest woman in Hollywood. Julie St. Claire. He never expected her to love him in return, but Cupid has other tricks in mind, and shot St.Clair with his arrow and life has been a bed of roses ever since.
Until that ex-con stalker was set on the loose. Now Julie received letters and gifts that any other woman would love to receive, except these were laced with threats and malice.
I loved this book from start to finish. I love a character that knows how to see the wrongs of his ways and strives to change for the better. I love the character that doesn’t look at the physical disability of a person, but also accept his flaws and shortcomings. I love a character that is selfless and benevolent towards the ones she truly love, and that’s her family.
And I love a story filled with loving supporting characters and a plot laced with twists and turns, albeit a little predictable. Yes, this Feeling of Forever I actually need after a stressful week. I love this story by Jamie Howard because it is well-put, well-written and well-researched, too. My first book from Howard and I’m already sold! Would be reading the other Love Unplugged stories really soon!
