“Sophie Love's ability to impart magic to her readers is exquisitely wrought in powerfully evocative phrases and descriptions….FOR NOW AND FOREVER is the perfect romance or beach read, with a difference: its enthusiasm and beautiful descriptions offer an unexpected attention to the complexity of not just evolving love, but evolving psyches. It's a delightful recommendation for romance readers looking for a touch more complexity from their romance reads.”
--Midwest Book Review (Diane Donovan)

“FOR NOW AND FOREVER is a very well written novel, describing the struggle of a woman (Emily) to find her true identity. The author did an amazing job with the creation of the characters and her description of the environment. The romance is there, but not overdosed. Kudos to the author for this amazing start of a series that promises to be very entertaining.”
--Books and Movies Reviews, Roberto Mattos

Emily Mitchell, 35, living and working in New York City, has struggled through a string of failed relationships. When her boyfriend of 7 years takes her out for their long-awaited anniversary dinner, Emily is sure that this time will be different, that this time she will finally get the ring.

When he gives her a small bottle of perfume instead, Emily knows the time has come to break up with him—and for her entire life to have a fresh start.

Reeling from her unsatisfying, high-pressure life, Emily decides she needs a change. She decides on a whim to drive to her father’s abandoned home on the coast of Maine, a sprawling, historic house where she’d spent magical summers as a child. But the house, long-neglected, is in dire need of repair, and the winter is no time to be in Maine. Emily hasn’t been there in 20 years, when a tragic accident changed her sister’s life and shattered her family. Her parents divorced, her father disappeared, and Emily was never able to bring herself to step foot in that house again.

Now, for some reason, with her life reeling, Emily feels drawn to the only childhood place she ever knew. She plans on going just for a weekend, to clear her head. But something about the house, its numerous secrets, its memories of her father, its oceanfront allure, its small-town setting—and most of all, its gorgeous, mysterious caretaker—doesn’t want to let her leave. Can she find the answers she’s been looking for here, in the most unexpected place of all?

Can a weekend become a lifetime?

FOR NOW AND FOREVER is book #1 in the debut of a dazzling new romance series that will make you laugh, make you cry, will keep you turning pages late into the night—and will make you fall in love with romance all over again.

Book #2 is also now available!


  • Love it

    By Shaye1215
    This book was very refreshing. Not too predictable and not too uncertain. I like that about romance novels. I found a few grammatical errors, none to fret over. This was a very well written book.
  • Seems like author wants more money

    By Buddy'sma
    The books are more like novellas. Seems like they could have been combined together to make a substantial three part series. The story is fine but gets redundant with Emily’s whining and lack of trust.
  • Couldn’t finish

    By Coouurrttnneeyymb
    I couldn’t even finish this book. I got halfway through it. I found myself barely skimming most of it because the author put in a lot of boring, useless words. The characters are supposed to be in their mid thirties but act like they’re 18. The main character is a nitwhit. Seriously, this book just goes on and on about nothing. I feel like the nonexistent storyline is going nowhere.
  • The cover is misleading

    By N.i.k.k.i_D
    It was a boring read. The plot was drawn out and the characters were almost unlikeable which may have been the point but it was so predictable and just flopped when it could have been so much better. I don't want to continue reading this series because it's clear it will only draw out the main characters dramas and come to a predictable happy ending with no real twists. To me, it's missing that element of intrigue that really makes you want to keep reading. Like why not play more into the neighbor setting the fire by reminding them they tossed the damaged toaster after the storm or him bringing it up at the meeting meant he knew more than he should... SOMETHING!
  • Fantastic start

    By penny42058
    This is a fantastic start to this series. Emily returns to her father’s house in Maine, after she breaks up with her boyfriend of seven years and quits her job. She’s only planning to stay for a short time, but plans have a way of changing. Daniel is the caretaker of the house and lives in the carriage house on the property. Will they become friends even though he says he doesn’t need more friends? Grab your copy and see what happens in the start of this series.
  • Unbelievable

    By 11tms69
    I couldn’t finish the book. The main character was unbelievable, childish and petty. She made me angry in the first chapter. It seemed unrealistic. Sorry this book was too much for me.
