Forever and For Always {Debra Clopton}

forever and for always debra clopton
Publicist Olivia Sinclair has been away from Windswept Bay for years, busy helping the Hollywood elite get out of one scandal after another. But now, she’s in the middle of her own scandal and splashed all over the gossip tabloids. Suddenly, coming home to lay low in Windswept Bay is her own best advice to herself. 

Life as he knows it has just been altered for charter boat captain, Brandon “BJ” McCall. He’s just learned he has a brother and he’s inherited millions—complicated…just a little and he’s not exactly sure how he feels about either. But rescuing a beautiful, Pink Kitty shorty pajama clad female from the roof of her house is a complication he can enjoy. 

Being rescued by a stranger who could rival any of her Hollywood clients—isn’t exactly what Olivia had planned when she came home to hide out. Falling for the guy who, she learns is perfect tabloid material in his own right is not a smart PR move. She’s trying to get off the cover of the gossip magazines—not hold her spot for eternity! 

But it’s complicated. 
Especially, on the beaches of Windswept Bay where romance is in the air and love is a complication that just might be undeniable.

My Thoughts:
This series has been such fun to read, and I was so excited when I realized this book was Olivia’s story. Olivia is the only sister who has left Windswept Bay, and she rarely returns home. But scandal has brought her sneaking back home to the security of her family.

I knew I liked Olivia from the moment we met her, perched on the roof. She is someone who spends her professional career being confident and commanding, but we realize she can be very insecure and vulnerable in her personal life. Falling in love is definitely not on her radar.

We met BJ in the previous book and knew he was a great guy. I was hoping he would continue to be a part of this series, but I had no idea just how important his role would be. I love the character he became and the part he plays in this family. I found myself rooting for his happiness from the first chapter.

The series continues to provide entertainment, and I like that each book builds on the stories already told in previous installments. I look forward to getting to know the rest of the Sinclair family in books to come.
