GENRE: M/M Romance

Hello Forever is a standalone, book two of the Hello, Goodbye duet … read on for details!


When they were only teenagers, Axel and Caxton were caught making out in the woods at church camp. And afterward, Cax had disappeared from all the youth group activities.

Six years later, Axel is astonished to spot his first love’s face in the crowd of a college basketball game he’s watching on TV—at a school which has just offered him a job. It’s a thousand miles away, in a tiny rural town. But suddenly, he can’t wait to get there.

Cax can’t believe his eyes when Axel appears in the same Massachusetts town where he now lives. And he’s still just as drawn to Axel as ever. But he can’t let himself go there again, because loving Axel will mean giving up everything else he holds dear.

Both men have so much to lose. But as far as their love is concerned, it's Hello Forever.

Hello Forever is a stand-alone novel with no cliffhangers. Readers of Goodbye Paradise will get to check in on Caleb and Josh and their clan.



4.5 stars! 

As a lover of Sarina Bowen’s work before Hello Forever, I was excited to read this book. I was even more excited after reading part one of this duet and I urge anyone who hasn’t read Goodbye Paradise to read it first even though it isn't needed to understand Hello Forever. 

I really loved this book just like I was expecting. Sarina Bowen never fails to disappoint me with her writing, stories and characters. I fell in love with Cax and Axel right away. Their story blew me away and hit me right in the feels. I LOVED these two together and I loved their history and how after so many years they were finally able to have their happy ending. I felt the connection between these two men as it flew off the pages. This story was filled with so much emotion, I felt the heartbreak, the love and the friendship between these two men. These two characters stole my heart just like all of Sarina’s characters have managed to do. 

Sarina has a way of telling stories that make you cling to every word. You get immersed into the story and it feels like you’re there watching the characters right in front of you. She creates characters that are so complex but relatable that it feels like you know them personally. 

I really loved Cax and Axel, I loved their banter and everything about them. They were so perfect for each other even after everything that had to endure to get to where they are now. I also loved that we got a glimpse at Josh and Caleb’s life now as they appear in this story a few times. I always love catching up with characters I have fallen in love with in the past. 

This story gave me so much hope. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who loves romance.

Most people called it a cult. But for twenty years, Josh & Caleb called it home.

In Paradise, there is no television. No fast food. Just long hours of farm work and prayer on a dusty Wyoming ranch, and nights in a crowded bunkhouse. The boys of the Compound are kept far from the sinners’ world.
But Joshua doesn’t need temptation to sin. His whole life, he’s wanted his best friend, Caleb. By day they work side by side. Only when Josh closes his eyes at night can they be together the way he craves.
It can never be. And his survival depends on keeping his terrible desires secret.
Caleb has always protected Josh against the worst of the bullying at the Compound. But he has secrets of his own, and a plan to get away — until it all backfires.
Josh finds himself homeless in a world that doesn’t want him. Can Caleb find him in time? And will they find a place of safety, where he can admit to Josh how he really feels?
Warning: Contains a hot male/male romance, copious instances of taking the Lord’s name in vain, and love against the kitchen counterThis book was previously released under the title: In Front of God & Everyone. For more about its previous publication, you can read this blog post.
