The blog tour hosted by the fantastic Love N Books stops by Hot Reads today with the third book in the Beaumont series by Heidi Mclaughlin, Finding My Forever.
Everywhere I look, my friends are settling down – marriage, children, white picket fences; but not me. Marriage isn’t in the cards for me. I’m a ladies man.
A rock star.
I was born and raised in the industry.
I love everything about my life, especially the attention from the women that my status brings me.
Women find me. I don’t chase. I know what they want and they know I’ll deliver.
But after one look, one touch, one night…
Now I’m the one doing the chasing.
I need to find a way to show her that I’m serious, that I can change.
I need to find a way to show her that I can love her fully, and only her.
I need to find a way to show her that she’s my forever.

We’re back in Beaumont with the guys from 4225 West, and this time we get to meet Jimmy “JD” Davis. The British hunk with a love for the ladies. And the ladies certainly love him too. I mean, he’s British, hot, can sing, he’s in a band, and he’s from a broken home. I’m pretty sure he ticks all the boxes and pushes all the right buttons.
I am such a HUGE fan of this series and Heidi Mclaughlin never fails to make me fall in love with her characters, and Jimmy with his British charm was no exception. It wasn’t instant love for me with him though. To start with I wasn’t sure what to think about him. He came across as a bit of an A-hole but as we get further along in the story, we learn more about him and he completely won me over.
Now, with Jenna, the female main character and love interest of Jimmy, it was a different story. I loved her from the very start and the more I read, the more I loved her. My heart broke for her when I learned of her past and I was really worried for her. I hoped and prayed that everything would work out for her because she absolutely deserved the best and on occasion I even wanted to slap Jimmy around a bit for being stupid. But he wasn’t the worst of the troubles.
Heidi certainly knows how to keep you gripped to her novels. There was drama and intensity coming from all directions and there were plenty of *GASP* and “OMG” moments. Even just thinking about it all now has my heart rate increasing.
And then of course there were the tears. Something happened and I was a complete mess! Tears, tears, and more tears! My emotions took one heck of a beat down while reading this book but I honestly wouldn’t have had it any other way.
And let us not forget the incredible band behind the series, 4225 West. It was great getting to see Liam and Harrison again. Liam played quite a big part in Finding My Forever which I’m assuming is because he will be getting a prequel novella about back in the day before he returned to Beaumont and I could not be any more excited for this! But the tattooed, motorcycle riding, Harrison still owns my heart. *dreamy sigh* I love him so much!
A must read for all fans of the Beaumont series. ★★★★☆ 4 Stars
