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.
Peyton Powell-James always knew her future would be in football and dreams of having a successful sports journalism career once she graduates college. After being given an assignment to cover a professional game from the sidelines, Peyton believes that everything is going to plan, until one fateful night changes her life.
Harsh reality sets in for Noah and Peyton. One could lose everything, while the other one struggles to keep the families together.

My Thoughts

Oh my heart. I'm going to need some time to recover from this one.

I was hit full force with the latest book of the Beaumont Series, Holding Onto Forever. I love that Noah and Peyton finally get their story told. As the children of 4225 West, I’ve grown to care about these characters and they hold a special place in my heart.

I was on the verge of tears for most of the book - I can only describe it was the face-numbing fear and just heartache. I honestly wasn’t sure if I was going to make it through with my heart intact because I was feeling all of the feelings. Why must Heidi make me cry like this? I really wanted someone to hold my hand and comfort me telling me it was going to get better and it was all going to work out. AND I am NOT being overly dramatic. BUT this is why I love this series.

I have some much love for this book. There are many highs and lows and so much love that it’s overflowing. We get to see vulnerable characters - Liam and Harrison in dad mode. We get to be in on the joke of the long names of Powell-James family. We get to experience the friendship and love between Noah and Peyton which we knew existed all along. And then there is Mason. Oh Mason.

With every book of the Beaumont series, my emotions get all tangled up and I become invested in these stories. It’s a testament to Heidi’s craft and what she’s created with this series. I can’t wait to read more books of Beaumont - The Next Generation.

I loved it!!
