Release Blitz & Review ~~ Holding Onto Forever by Heidi McLaughlin
The road for Noah Westbury has been carved out for him, long before he knew who his father was. Making sure he worked hard to deserve the opportunities provided to him, Noah is exactly where he dreamed of being – starting QB for Portland Pioneers. Together with a Victoria Secret’s model girlfriend by his side, life couldn’t get much better. Except for the fact that standing in his path is Peyton Powell-James, his life-long friend and the one woman he can never have.
STEPHANIE’S 4.5 BLUSH REVIEW
Heidi McLaughlin brings us the next generation of The Beaumont Series. This can definitely be read as a standalone and Heidi does a nice job of explaining the different relationships in the story.
Noah Westbury and Peyton Powell-James come from famous families. Not only are their parents famous, but they grew up together as extended family. Noah and Peyton have a tight bond and consider themselves “best friends” even though there is a five year age gap. They share their love of many things including football. Noah is the starting quarterback for the Portland Pioneers while Peyton is at college in Chicago studying sports journalism. It seems that their families are spread all across the country…..
When we’re together, we’re inseparable, a tight-knit group and right now we’re spread all over the place.
A life changing event occurs, bringing everyone together. I don’t want to spoil the story but I must say I was on the edge of my seat! By chapter eleven my heart was ripped out! There is so much emotion going on all around. Fear, hope, love, loss and uncertainty are just a few.
The buildup was slow. Lives are changed. There was so much angst! The story peaks and more drama ensues. My only complaint is that I felt that Noah was too undecided. He struggled with his decision making. He had so much on his plate and so much on the line, but he had strong family back up. I thought that his famous parents would have spoken up more to help guide him with his choices.
I was very happy with the ending! And of course there are many other stories to tell. I am thinking that Peyton’s twin sister Elle’s story may be next!
We’re sisters. We share. Except when we don’t. Any and everything I feel about Noah is off limits. As far as Elle and the rest of my family is concerned, Noah’s my best friend. To me, he’s the man I’m desperately in love with.
I need a drink! Well done!
