 From the moment Nolan Pratt walked into Alexa Arnold’s life everything was forever changed. After a year of dating, the ring was on her finger, the house was purchased, and life was heading down Pleasantville Lane. Everything was perfect.

Or so they thought.

With help from his parent’s inheritance, Nolan takes on a new business adventure, utilizing all his free time. What was once their life- carefree with minimal responsibilities, is no more. When Alexa starts to feel the pressure from school, wedding planning, and lack of help from Nolan, exhaustion kicks in and feelings get hurt, testing the strength of their relationship. But, if there is one thing that Nolan will never compromise, it’s Alexa’s happiness. There’s nothing Nolan Pratt won’t do to make sure Alexa is well taken care of, loved, and happy.

When Nolan’s past resurfaces- a past that Alexa didn’t know existed- will it all be too much? Will Nolan’s devotion to Alexa’s happiness cost him their relationship and lose him the only thing that has ever mattered in his life? Or will Nolan discover that his past doesn’t determine his future and he is worth the happiness he doesn’t think he deserves?-- Goodreads


From the beginning I was overwhelmed by how much this couple loves each other. Throughout the whole book, even in the most devastating of times in their relationship there was never any doubt they belonged together. Ranging from overly sweet to kill-me-know devastation this book will take you on a roller-coaster ride of emotions.
Nolan is the most ideal man. Loving, caring, thoughtful, attentive, ambitions, smart and handsome. Seriously, he’s it seems. I mean he is sincere in regards to all listed attributes when it comes to Alexa but no one is really ever “perfect”. Nolan has kept a dark past that he thinks may affect his relationship with Alexa.
Alexa is sweet, kind and loving and is working on becoming a teacher. She is loving her life with her fianc√© Nolan and is happy planning their wedding. There shouldn’t be a happier time then this but planning the wedding of your dreams is not as easy as it sounds at first. As the stress of putting together a grand wedding and Nolan’s new business venture things seem to get a little rocky. Then Nolan’s past finally catches up with them leaving Nolan very unsettled.
These two go through so much in the couple of years they are together (really the most recent year) and it takes its toll on the strength of their relationship.
This is a “love concurs all” story full of emotion and high hopes. This book is dripping with romance and lots of amazing sex scenes. It was a fun read but I felt the “I love you’s” may have been a bit overdone and there was some repetition. It didn’t hinder me from finishing the book in fact their story is addicting and I just had to know what happens to them. Either way I enjoyed the book and was happy with the ending.

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.
I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.
Then there was this book… Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James.  I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all.  But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.
 I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days.  Yes, three books in three days.
 I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).
 Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head. 
I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it,  Planning on Forever was born.
The voices in my head are still talking, so I’m still writing.
