Welcome To Forever by Annie Rains

Hero's Welcome #1 

♥ ♥ ♥  This is the debut novel from this author and I thought the story had a good plot. Rains filled the story with some large issues to deal with: Single parenting, bullying, a child with cerebral palsy, grief for a dead fiancé..not to mention the few other difficulties she threw in for plot twists..  at times it felt like perhaps, if there were less things to deal with, the major issues could have been addressed more fully.  Though as in life sometimes it all happens at once.

Micah was a decent character, he’s a good dad to Ben and works hard to make their life the best he can give them. I found Kat likeable… at times however, she was a bit wishy-washy and for a smart woman, sometimes a bit clueless. 

The two had pretty good chemistry, though their feelings for each other and their situations seemed to run hot and cold from one minute to the next.

The secondary characters were interesting. If there is a follow up book, I may check it out.

To Purchase:

Here's the blurb:

If you love Kristan Higgins, Susan Mallery, or Jill Shalvis, you won’t want to miss the Hero’s Welcome military romance series! Welcome to Forever introduces a small coastal town where America’s best and brightest risk everything for love.

In Seaside, North Carolina, there are two kinds of people: Marines, and kids of Marines. Then there’s Kat Chandler. Recently hired as the principal of Seaside Elementary, Kat makes it her mission to turn the school into a place of peace and calm. That’s not going to be easy with hard-liner parents like Micah Peterson storming in, telling her how to do her job—and then kissing her with those gorgeous lips of his and turning her brain into mush.

As a Marine Sergeant and a single dad, Micah Peterson has just two priorities: doing his job better than anyone else, and getting the absolute best for his son, Ben. But when he meets Ben’s beautiful new principal, a different yearning shifts into focus. He wants her, sure, but he’s also moved by the connection Kat forges with her students. So after learning that she refuses to date Marines, Micah sets two more objectives: convincing Kat to give him a chance . . . and then holding on to her forever.

"Full of heart and emotion, don't miss this sparkling debut!" NYT bestselling author, Lori Wilde.
