and emotionally charged romances I ve ever read AL Jackson writing is simply exquisite I love these characters so much and seeing their story and their love come full circle was an incredible experience.Please note this is not a standalone and should only be read after Take This Regret.I will admit though that I started this book with a mix of excitement, anticipation and fear These characters were so dear to my heart and I d seen them get through years of hardship and together build their second chance that I wasn t sure I could handle anything coming between them But AL Jackson had never steered me wrong before so I trusted she would give them the ending they deserved and I dove in.The first chapter gutted me Everything that Christian and Elizabeth had built together seemed to have fallen apart and I had no idea why It started off ten months after the ending of Take This Regret and clearly something devastating had happened that was big enough to have driven them away from each other As Christian said though, this wasn t about betrayal, not something she or I had caused This was something that neither of us could control This was unfair, unjust This was torture So I flipped the pages as fast as I could trying to find out what could possibly have come between them.As with the first book, this one is told in both a mixture of flashbacks and present day story lines, as well as alternating POVs between Christian and Elizabeth, weaving together all the pieces of the story.Seeing how blissfully happy they were together in the earlier flashbacks made me wonder how they could have ever been torn apart There was never any doubt that Christian and Elizabeth were soul mates They were completely and utterly in love with each other and even when things got rough and when it was too hard for them to admit it, deep down they were always connected In this book, they were faced with a gut wrenching tragedy they had no power to stop and it put the true strength of their love to the ultimate test Anger and regret Pain, prominent and suffocating Underneath it all was the love that would never let us go While I was reading, the anticipation, the dread, the heart break, the sheer longing for things between them to be fixed consumed me I was furious with Elizabeth because I largely blamed her for how far things had broken between them not for what had happened of course, but for how she reacted afterwards and while I was also upset a little upset with Christian, I did feel like I understood where he was coming from in this book a lot The thing is though that trauma affects us all differently and, in times of extreme pain, few people are rational Pain blinds us and sometimes we lay blame where it isn t deserved as a way of coping.But what it all came down to, what it had always come down to with Christian and Elizabeth was that they both loved each other with all their hearts There may have been dark spots in their past, months or years stolen away by extreme pain but they had a soul deep connection that nothing could break.Life isn t perfect Love isn t perfect But the beauty of Christian and Elizabeth s story was that in the end their love withstood everything and got them through even the darkest of times.At the end of the book, we are treated to two beautifully detailed and very long epilogues that took the time to literally show us their happily ever after I can t tell you how much it meant to have this After everything they d been through, this was like an affirmation of their love, proving to us that what they d held onto, what we as the readers had held onto, was real and forever You belong to me just like I belong to you AL Jackson s stories are filled with heartbreaking intensity and beautiful passion Her words speak

rethink the rating I gave Take This Regret.My problems Oh, there were many.This is an edited review because I finished reading this at 3AM a few nights ago and I was so angry and disgruntled that if I had tried to write a review then it would have been a mess So I took the time to get my mind right so I could really tell you all why this book which so many people are giving 5 Stars, is only getting 2 Stars from me First I d like to tell you that I did enjoy the first two books in this series, but as I mentioned earlier, after reading this one and seeing how these characters did not grow or change or become stronger they actually regressed , I am rethinking that And I hate that Now onto my issues First you have to know that I HATE weak people Mentally weak woman who cry all the time and crumble yeah, not my thing Now I have read a few such characters who have gained strength and grown and I enjoy that journey I have also read some that have moments of weakness or mental illness but who overcome IMO, in this book, Elizabeth doesn t do that Actually, I think she needed to be committed to a facility and I got angry at everyone around her for not doing exactly that The thing that happens, the big tragedy, yes, it s terrible But I just don t feel that a mentally healthy person would sink into a 4 month depression over it Not as bad as hers got Another sign of weakness was the fact that NO ONE was calling her out for being at this point in the story clinically depressed Oh, she s sad No She was in need of professional help and not once is it even MENTIONED Most of my issues involve spoilers The first one is about the handling of the tragedy view spoiler Losing a child midway threw pregnancy is devastating Having to give birth to the stillborn child is also devastating I am lucky I never lost a pregnancy or a child that way, but I know people who have Many people who have I know people who lost full term pregnancies during childbirth and only one of those women got even remotely this depressed and she had depression issues before and SOUGHT HELP That s my problem with Elizabeth Everyone just allows her to shut down, they enable her behavior and allow her to still show this deep spiral to her young child and nobody tries to make her seek out help Not one person And with the way she was acting even before we knew EXACTLY what happened I was giving her some benefit of the doubt because honestly I was expecting it to be worse with how she was acting I expected Christian to have done something to cause the miscarriage or for her to be unable to have children ever again or both But no She has a second trimester miscarriage It wasn t Christian s fault It wasn t anyone s fault It was a terrible thing that happened to THEM It is something that, although rare and tragic, should not cause a healthy person to shut down for months upon months And she does shut down She selfishly thinks that because Christian didn t act the exact same way she did that he somehow didn t love their baby Honestly aside from him enabling her downward spiral and walking away when she acted like a child, his reactions and grief were almost exactly right And then she screams that she hates him Very immature But he was no saint I agree with how he himself processed his grief but he should have stayed and made her better and he shouldn t have been allowing her to show this depression to Lizzie So he s not perfect here by a long shot hide spoiler So yeah sigh I m a very empathetic person and I hated being so angry with a character who was in so much pain and who had suffered so much but I just was The way it was written with time jumps and almost playing the tragedy like a mystery also bugged me quite a bit Just spit it out already Be chronological This back and forth to spread the misery throughout the entire book made the not so miserable parts stale for me Because I know how mentally unstable these two people are and how fragile the foundation of the relationship is now.You gain strength through adversity You show what you are made of as a couple and as an individual in the tough times I just didn t end up liking these people who, at one time, meant something to me And that makes me unhappy flag 40 likesLike see review View all 12 comments Sep 22, 2013 Jamie rated it it was amazing review of another edition This book should come with a

together, it all comes crashing down Christian and Elizabeth are left devastated, with only anger and the bitter sense of loss Nothing either of them can do will give them back what they ve lost.Turning her feelings of anger and betrayal toward Christian, Elizabeth slips into a deep depression Harsh words are spoken and their love is put to the ultimate test Christian is once again living a lonely, desolate life, with Elizabeth and Lizzie just out of reach He desperately wants to have Elizabeth back in his arms, but fears that she may be lost to him forever.I don t want to give too much away, but I will say that this story was heart wrenching The characters and storyline are skillfully crafted in Ms Jackson s trademark style If you ve read other books of hers, then you know what I mean If not, you owe it to yourself to find out what you ve been missing This story will grip you and tug at your heart from start to finish It is a story about love, loss, and forgiveness I can always count on Ms Jackson when I need a good cry She ll take you on a journey of strength and healing when all seems lost I was touched and inspired by Christian and Elizabeth s story If you enjoyed Take This Regret , then you won t want to miss this one If not, you need to read book 1 first to understand and fully enjoy this one Another emotional, beautiful story from Ms Jackson flag 19

destroys Elizabeth and causes her to pull away from Christian He is once again sexy, alpha and wonderful He is definitely in it for the long haul for forever The story is told in past and present as well as both Christian and Elizabeth s povs Past being recent events that have caused a huge riff between our favorite couple I d been so wrapped up in giving her perfection, I hadn t been prepared to hold her up when devastation hit A reader should be prepared to witness the devastating fall of Elizabeth I just felt terrible for both characters as Christian frantically fights for his family People don t always get to love like this, Elizabeth Not the way we do It s a gift Elizabeth was so lost, angry and withdrawn Her pain felt very real I cringed during the Logan scenes but thankfully,

outcome of these two until I read the epilogue The entire book, they are grieving, they are hurting, they are spiteful at times, angry, selfish, the list could go on and on Also, at times I had a really hard time dealing with Elizabeth s emotions or rather trying to justify them in a way that would make me agree with her, and I did to a certain extent I m a mother myself, and to have to go through what she and Christian did I truly could not even image, and I would never in my life want to or wish that on anyone I ached for her and Christian, my heart broke for their loss Being a parent is the best gift in this world, and for something to happen to a child, is indescribable Also her attitude was very selfish and at times very irrational towards Christian Words like I cringed, I wanted to gag when he touched me It was like no one could possibly feel any loss because they were not Elizabeth, unless you were her you had no idea what she was going through She had no regard for anyone but herself She minimized everyone s grief but her own This is a women an adult and for that matter who did nothing to help herself I mean she completely checked out, and never asked for help, professional or otherwise, she never sought after getting better Oh wait let me take that back she Will Try , Oh she tried alright, right into another mans arms who she knew all of what two seconds God forbid she talk to her friends or family or even a damn therapist, I mean gosh how unthinkable She just pushed everyone away and failed to notice anyone else including her daughter I mean I can only image how confused that little girl had to be at times And poor Christian had to bear the brunt of this horrific tragedy He was made to feel belittled for his loss, because he didn t carry this child or he didn t hold her he must not have cared or loved her What total bullshit He was made to feel that everything that happened he should be the one to fix.It takes two to make a relationship work, and two to make it fall apart Elizabeth made her intentions and her thoughts very clear as did Christian But, what really did the man do except for make a decision that he knew Elizabeth could not or would not make on her own So, therefore he should be punished by his loss, and then take away is normal I mean talk about kicking a man when he is down.How come she didn t have to own her actions How is it that she didn t have to take any of the responsibility as to why her relationship was on the out I gave this book a 2 star rating because of Christian, Lizzie the epilogue In all honesty if is wasn t for them I would have only given this book 1 star I wasn t blown away by this book at all actual this book made me mad pretty much throughout I gave Take This Regret a 5 stars

ocurr a de fondo en este libro pero a n as os voy a contar.Despu s de que el libro anterior termina todo s per feliz con Christian, Elisabeth y Lizzy viajando a Nueva York este libro nos suelta una sinopsis que m s bien es una introducci n al libro para que la autora empiece la historia donde a ella le salga del mism simo potorro As que la sinopsis dice que tiene a Elisabeth con un anillo en el dedo y ya est viviendo con ella y su hija en una casa Pero en realidad el libro no empieza as no, ya empieza muuuucho m s adelante Ya ha quedado claro que esta autora hace lo que le parece sin pensar en lo confusa que puede resultar la lectura Bueno as que hay que entender en este libro, que ya de por s es confuso, encima hace cap tulos intercalados con flashbacks del estilo cap tulo 1 el presente contado por Christian, cap tulo 2 el pasado contado por Elisabeth, cap tulo 3 el presente contado por Elisabeth, etc etc etc Vamos que una no se entera de n Pero a la historia venga que me l o Bueno empezamos ya la historia con ellos separados, porque como siempre esta autora vive la vida para separarlos ES QUE NO ME DA UN JODIDO MINUTO DE DESCANSO No los deja vivir felices no, tiene que vender m s libros entonces tiene que armar cosas s per chungas para separarlos As que estamos aqu sintiendo la jodida angustia de Christian que lleva d as sin ver a su hija, viviendo en otra casa lejos de la mujer que ama Una mujer que es una sombra de lo que era porque est destruida, ambos est n destruidos porque algo horrible sucedi Algo por lo que Christian se echa la culpa, pero que ya os digo desde ahora QUE NO LA TIENE Que quede muy clarito Pero as va el libro, viendo la angustia de Christian, viviendo la depresi n de Elisabeth y sufriendo por la tristeza de Lizzy al ver sus padres separados Pues no sabemos el terrible secreto que sucedi hasta m s de la mitad del libro, aunque como he dicho antes es muy predecible Ah va el secreto Elisabeth se qued embarazada y el mismo d a que se iba a casar con Christian se encontr mal y cuando fue al hospital se puso de parto, o algo as porque no s explica, y la ni a naci muerta Es duro, lo entiendo, pero tambi n hay que entender QUE ES DURO PARA AMBOS Algo de lo que Elisabeth se evadi completamente Ella se aferr durante d as a su hija muerta y no quer a dejarla ir Christian finalmente tuvo que llev rsela y ella lo odi por ello por eso No puedo creerme que no entienda que tan duro era para l ver a su mujer abrazar durante d as el cuerpo muerto de su hija As que ella se enfrasca en una espiral de odio y depresi n Se mete en la cama y deja a Christian con todo, con su propio dolor, con el dolor de Elisabeth, con el dolor de toda la familia y tambi n cuidando de la hija que ya ten an algo de lo que Elisabeth se olvid por completo As que despu s de seis semanas en las que Elisabeth se tumb en la cama sin nada m s que eso, dormir y nada m s, Christian le dijo que era hora de levantarse, de intentar superar el dolor Joder todav a ten a una hija que la necesitaba Y no sab is, no sab is lo que le dijo Dios me doli hasta a m le dijo literalmente que l no hab a amado a la ni a que muri porque no la hab a llevado en su vientre, no la hab a cuidado y sobre todo no la hab a abrazado Le dijo que lo odiaba Como mierda puedes atreverte a decirle eso a alguien que ha estado cuidando de ti, de tu hija y de s mismo y su dolor mientras t te tumbabas ah y te revolcabas sin preocuparte de los dem s Pues si se ores, y se pas todo el libro diciendo que no pod a dejar de odiarlo Incre ble Y no contentos con eso, se li con el vecino con el puto vecino Cuando sab a que Christian la amaba y todav a esperaba que alg n d a ella pudiese ver que se hab a equivocado, que pudiese ver en l el mismo sufrimiento por el que ella estaba pasando

emotional, adult romance novels I have ever read I fell in love with Christian and Elizabeth in Take This Regret and just devoured their romance and their struggle to reunite after many years apart Christian meets Elizabeth in college and the two fall in love a deep love When Elizabeth tells Christian she is pregnant he breaks up with her and Elizabeth leaves college to return home and never speaks to Christian again As the years pass, Christian regrets leaving Elizabeth and has not been able to love again Five years go by and Christian sees Elizabeth and their daughter for the first time He does everything in his power to prove to Elizabeth he still loves her and won t leave her again I loved the ending of Take This Regret but was also so excited their story would continue It s always been you, Christian Since the moment I realized I was in love with you when I was eighteen, I never stopped And I promise you, I m not ever going to If Forever Comes is written in a unique format It starts in the present time with Christian drinking in a bar, hurt and damaged by Elizabeth pushing him away As the reader we do not know what event happened to cause Elizabeth and Christian to be apart It is written in alternating perspectives between Christian Elizabeth as well as past present from months earlier, switching from chapter to chapter It is almost like starting the book backwards and we find out what happened between the two near the end It d broken Elizabeth Cruelly Savagely In Turn, she d shattered me I love Ms Jackson s writing style, her stories are so mature, so real, and so raw and If Forever Comes stayed true to that form My heart breaks for what these two have to deal with time and time again They cannot seem to catch a break and just be happy for longer than a day I was able to predict what was going on by the situations but I think that was the author s intentions It was still very hard to read about when the past was retold, brought tears to my eyes because it is so real Stay away from her Do you understand me This is my family Did you see that ring on her finger Do you think this is a game That woman belongs to me She always has and she always will Don t think for a second you can take her from me She will love me until the day she dies I love Christian he proves he is still the man who came back for Elizabeth and his daughter Elizabeth this time around just annoyed me she has this man who adores her, who would walk on glass for her and she pushes him away Her thoughts just drove me insane because I could not understand it I adored her character in the past but I really was annoyed with her this time around Their daughter is still adorable I can t believe how big she has gotten As I said in previous reviews, I usually do not care for children s characters in books but I love Lizzy She is adorable As much as I love their story and Christian, If Forever Comes just wasn t for me I did not like how the two were apart for so long during the book I wanted interaction between them and dialogue It was a lot of inner thoughts and I needed from the characters and story Like I said the writing was phenomenal but the story just didn t catch me in this time It just felt like too much for the characters to go through with everything else that has happened Also the beginning with glimpses of the past was just too much sex they were always having sex and I was just reading to get to the real story It was just too much in a short amount of time The ending was very sweet and perfect to read The epilogue future was a few chapters long and goes years into the future I felt like I was able to get complete and total closure from Christian and Elizabeth.I give If Forever Comes Take This Regret 2 3 Stars flag 10 likesLike see

together only to have another book full of unnecessary drama You think with everything that happened to them too grown people with a kid would learn to communicate See the importance of it But no the solution as to everything else is to push each other away.Christian maybe he had some part to play with regards to blame in all that happened, I don t know skimmed through the book so if so then he s an idiot because he allowed it to happen again after all those promises in the first book Turns out they very empty and useless.Elizabeth I loathed her in the first book, even though she was justified in feeling what she was, I still hated her This book wow is there a word stronger than hate She s selfish, she s immature, she says she loves Christian but her actions don t prove that I wouldn t want her to be my mother that s for sure I wouldn t want her to love me either with the way her emotions flip flop I mean I can t even begin to understand what it must be like to lose a child but she didn t miraculously conceive on her own It was part of the man too so again I think the lack of communication is stupid and uncalled for I m sad really, I could have done without seeing this end to things and just made it up in my mind from where the first book ended This just brings down the whole vibe of the first book and I may need to re rate that one I just hates books where grown people that have already been through so much and lost so much time together and should value communication make the same tired mistakes over and over Same empty promises and empty endearments Well this book would be a return for me I guess I get my 3 back Maybe I could buy a Kristen Ashley book and cheer myself up flag 9 likesLike see review View 1 comment Apr 29, 2013 Anna Banana rated it liked it review of

flashbacks, because I knew something would happen to cause them to fall apart, so sure, I got some steamy scenes and happy and giggles, but what s the point It s not lastingEN we get to the part where we find out what happened and of course, it was obvious, typical and I just couldn t believe Elizabeth and Christian both acted the way they acted.JUST WORK IT OUT PEOPLE I could understand if this was the first problem, I felt like Elizabeth and Christian went through so much already, that this conflict was just not needed.Oh and there was a part where I was angry, frustrated, I almost put this as DNF, but the book was so short, I finished it out.There was no point to this book, it was just added conflict, drama and a lot of angst It wasn t for me.Series Order REVIEW flag 6 likesLike see

pero luego lei tantas rese as que decian lo triste y dramatica que era la historia que decidi aplazar la lectura para otro momento.Al comenzar la lectura me costo un poco engancharme con la trama, sobre todo porque habia pasado tanto tiempo desde que lei el libro anterior que se me habian olvidado muchos detalles de la historia, ademas el libro comienza de una forma peculiar , ya que empieza narrando el futuro y luego retrocede varios meses para contarnos lo que ocurio y provoco la situacion sobre la que leemos en el primer capitulo.Es un libro que se lee muy rapido, tiene un ritmo muy natural y fluido que no se hace tedioso en ningun momento, aunque reconozco que en algunas ocasiones mientras leia deseaba que el drama acabara y los protagonistas tuvieran su final feliz.Creo que para poder entender por lo que pasa Elizabeth tienes que ser madre y aun no lo he sido por lo que quizas no puedo llegar a comprender la magnitud de perder a un hijo, sobre todo de la forma en la que ella lo pierde, de lo que si estoy segura es que la autora hace un trabajo increible narrandonos el dolor de Elizabeth y Chrstian, quizas me hubiera gustado mas este libro si A L Jackson no se hubiera ensa ado tanto con la pareja protagonista, senti que fue demasiado desgarradora la forma en la que se desarrolla todo en este libro, sinceramente esperaba una conclusion a esta serie un poco mas alegre y light, aun asi no me arrepiento de haberla leido porque al fin y al cabo el final de Elizabeth y Christian estuvo a la altura de su historia de amor.3 Estrellas flag 5 likesLike see review

how the book changed POVs and went between Past and Present This book was filled with angst than the other two books and I really wanted direct contact and tender moments between the characters.That being said, the writing was beautiful and the story was wonderful When I picked up the book, I was immediately shocked by the storyline and kind of figured out what was going to happen, but I had to read to find out the details I think Christian and Elizabeth are two of my favorite characters in a series SPOILERS I was taken in from the start of the story but was trying to figure out how Elizabeth and Christian had drifted so far apart I loved that it was love lost and then found and now the added component of a marriage and a baby to make the family complete.I definitely felt for Elizabeth throughout the book, but there were definitely times I wanted to smack her and ask her to come out of her grieving period.Christian was all man throughout the book and did everything he could to make Elizabeth see that he still loved her The neighbor was sleazy but I thought the story could have had a little depth were the fight for Elizabeth was concerned.I was so afraid there would not be a HEA ending for Christian and Elizabeth and was thrilled that there was and that they got the family they wanted.Excellent and enjoyable read by one of my favorite authors that is on my MUST

joy We see Christian and Elizabeth at both ends of the spectrum throughout this story and it is very powerful My stomach was in knots the entire time I felt every emotion along with them from happiness to tears And yes, I bawled like a baby But all along I had to have hopehope for Elizabeth, for Christian and for their daughter Lizzie who is such a bright light even in the darkest times I will admit that when I heard that there would be a sequel for this couple, I was not sure we needed it We learned about their beginnings in Lost to You And it seemed at the end of Take This Regret that there future would be bright and they were together But this book just made me realize how much I love this couple and their little family And even though it was hard and painful to read at times, they really did have story to tell and I was not disappointed A.L Jackson is a genius with creating complex characters with deep emotions, intense need, and dealing with difficult circumstances

away from each other As Christian said though, this wasn t about betrayal, not something she or I had caused This was something that neither of us could control This was unfair, unjust This was torture So I flipped the pages as fast as I could trying to find out what could possibly have come between them.As with the first book, this one is told in both a mixture of flashbacks and present day story lines, as well as alternating POVs between Christian and Elizabeth, weaving together all the pieces of the story.Seeing how blissfully happy they were together in the earlier flashbacks made me wonder how they could have ever been torn apart There was never any doubt that Christian and Elizabeth were soul mates They were completely and utterly in love with each other and even when things got rough and when it was too hard for them to admit it, deep down they were always connected In this book, they were faced with a gut wrenching tragedy they had no power to stop and it put the true strength of their love to the ultimate test Anger and regret Pain, prominent and suffocating Underneath it all was the love that would never let us go While I was reading, the anticipation, the dread, the heart break, the sheer longing for things between them to be fixed consumed me I was furious with Elizabeth because I largely blamed her for how far things had broken between them not for what had happened of course, but for how she reacted afterwards and while I was also upset a little upset with Christian, I did feel like I understood where he was coming from in this book a lot The thing is though that trauma affects us all differently and, in times of extreme pain, few people are rational Pain blinds us and sometimes we lay blame where it isn t deserved as a way of coping.But what it all came down to, what it had always come down to with Christian and Elizabeth was that they both loved each other with all their hearts There may have been dark spots in their past, months or years stolen away by extreme pain but they had a soul deep connection that nothing could break.Life isn t perfect Love isn t perfect But the beauty of Christian and Elizabeth s story was that in the end their love withstood everything and got them through even the darkest of times.At the end of the book, we are treated to two beautifully detailed and very long epilogues that took the time to literally show us their happily ever after I can t tell you how much it meant to have this After everything they d been through, this was like an affirmation of their love, proving to us that what they d held onto, what we as the readers had held onto, was real and forever You belong to me just like I belong to you AL Jackson s stories are filled with heartbreaking intensity and beautiful

series for me and made me rethink the rating I gave Take This Regret.My problems Oh, there were many.This is an edited review because I finished reading this at 3AM a few nights ago and I was so angry and disgruntled that if I had tried to write a review then it would have been a mess So I took the time to get my mind right so I could really tell you all why this book which so many people are giving 5 Stars, is only getting 2 Stars from me First I d like to tell you that I did enjoy the first two books in this series, but as I mentioned earlier, after reading this one and seeing how these characters did not grow or change or become stronger they actually regressed , I am rethinking that And I hate that Now onto my issues First you have to know that I HATE weak people Mentally weak woman who cry all the time and crumble yeah, not my thing Now I have read a few such characters who have gained strength and grown and I enjoy that journey I have also read some that have moments of weakness or mental illness but who overcome IMO, in this book, Elizabeth doesn t do that Actually, I think she needed to be committed to a facility and I got angry at everyone around her for not doing exactly that The thing that happens, the big tragedy, yes, it s terrible But I just don t feel that a mentally healthy person would sink into a 4 month depression over it Not as bad as hers got Another sign of weakness was the fact that NO ONE was calling her out for being at this point in the story clinically depressed Oh, she s sad No She was in need of professional help and not once is it even MENTIONED Most of my issues involve spoilers The first one is about the handling of the tragedy view spoiler Losing a child midway threw pregnancy is devastating Having to give birth to the stillborn child is also devastating I am lucky I never lost a pregnancy or a child that way, but I know people who have Many people who have I know people who lost full term pregnancies during childbirth and only one of those women got even remotely this depressed and she had depression issues before and SOUGHT HELP That s my problem with Elizabeth Everyone just allows her to shut down, they enable her behavior and allow her to still show this deep spiral to her young child and nobody tries to make her seek out help Not one person And with the way she was acting even before we knew EXACTLY what happened I was giving her some benefit of the doubt because honestly I was expecting it to be worse with how she was acting I expected Christian to have done something to cause the miscarriage or for her to be unable to have children ever again or both But no She has a second trimester miscarriage It wasn t Christian s fault It wasn t anyone s fault It was a terrible thing that happened to THEM It is something that, although rare and tragic, should not cause a healthy person to shut down for months upon months And she does shut down She selfishly thinks that because Christian didn t act the exact same way she did that he somehow didn t love their baby Honestly aside from him enabling her downward spiral and walking away when she acted like a child, his reactions and grief were almost exactly right And then she screams that she hates him Very immature But he was no saint I agree with how he himself processed his grief but he should have stayed and made her better and he shouldn t have been allowing her to show this depression to Lizzie So he s not perfect here by a long shot hide spoiler So yeah sigh I m a very empathetic person and I hated being so angry with a character who was in so much pain and who had suffered so much but I just was The way it was written with time jumps and almost playing the tragedy like a mystery also bugged me quite a bit Just spit it out already Be chronological This back and forth to spread the misery throughout the entire book made the not so miserable parts stale for me Because I know how mentally unstable these two people are and how fragile the foundation of the relationship is now.You gain strength through adversity You show what you are made of as a couple and as an individual in the tough times I just didn t end up liking these people who, at one time, meant something to me And that makes me unhappy flag 40 likesLike see review View all 12 comments Sep 22, 2013 Jamie rated it it was amazing

the ultimate test Christian is once again living a lonely, desolate life, with Elizabeth and Lizzie just out of reach He desperately wants to have Elizabeth back in his arms, but fears that she may be lost to him forever.I don t want to give too much away, but I will say that this story was heart wrenching The characters and storyline are skillfully crafted in Ms Jackson s trademark style If you ve read other books of hers, then you know what I mean If not, you owe it to yourself to find out what you ve been missing This story will grip you and tug at your heart from start to finish It is a

extent I m a mother myself, and to have to go through what she and Christian did I truly could not even image, and I would never in my life want to or wish that on anyone I ached for her and Christian, my heart broke for their loss Being a parent is the best gift in this world, and for something to happen to a child, is indescribable Also her attitude was very selfish and at times very irrational towards Christian Words like I cringed, I wanted to gag when he touched me It was like no one could possibly feel any loss because they were not Elizabeth, unless you were her you had no idea what she was going through She had no regard for anyone but herself She minimized everyone s grief but her own This is a women an adult and for that matter who did nothing to help herself I mean she completely checked out, and never asked for help, professional or otherwise, she never sought after getting better Oh wait let me take that back she Will Try , Oh she tried alright, right into another mans arms who she knew all of what two seconds God forbid she talk to her friends or family or even a damn therapist, I mean gosh how unthinkable She just pushed everyone away and failed to notice anyone else including her daughter I mean I can only image how confused that little girl had to be at times And poor Christian had to bear the brunt of this horrific tragedy He was made to feel belittled for his loss, because he didn t carry this child or he didn t hold her he must not have cared or loved her What total bullshit He was made to feel that everything that happened he should be the one to fix.It takes two to make a relationship work, and two to make it fall apart Elizabeth made her intentions and her thoughts very clear as did Christian But, what really did the man do except for make a decision that he knew Elizabeth could not or would not make on her own So, therefore he should be punished by his loss, and then take away is normal I mean talk about kicking a man when he is down.How come she didn t have to own her actions How is it that she didn t have to take any of the responsibility as to why her relationship was on the out I gave this book a 2 star rating because of Christian, Lizzie the epilogue In all honesty if is wasn t for them I would have only given this book 1 star I wasn t blown away by this book at all actual this book made me mad pretty much

Nueva York este libro nos suelta una sinopsis que m s bien es una introducci n al libro para que la autora empiece la historia donde a ella le salga del mism simo potorro As que la sinopsis dice que tiene a Elisabeth con un anillo en el dedo y ya est viviendo con ella y su hija en una casa Pero en realidad el libro no empieza as no, ya empieza muuuucho m s adelante Ya ha quedado claro que esta autora hace lo que le parece sin pensar en lo confusa que puede resultar la lectura Bueno as que hay que entender en este libro, que ya de por s es confuso, encima hace cap tulos intercalados con flashbacks del estilo cap tulo 1 el presente contado por Christian, cap tulo 2 el pasado contado por Elisabeth, cap tulo 3 el presente contado por Elisabeth, etc etc etc Vamos que una no se entera de

se echa la culpa, pero que ya os digo desde ahora QUE NO LA TIENE Que quede muy clarito Pero as va el libro, viendo la angustia de Christian, viviendo la depresi n de Elisabeth y sufriendo por la tristeza de Lizzy al ver sus padres separados Pues no sabemos el terrible secreto que sucedi hasta m s de la mitad del libro, aunque como he dicho antes es muy predecible Ah va el secreto Elisabeth se qued embarazada y el mismo d a que se iba a casar con Christian se encontr mal y cuando fue al hospital se puso de parto, o algo as porque no s explica, y la ni a naci muerta Es duro, lo entiendo, pero tambi n hay que entender QUE ES DURO PARA AMBOS Algo de lo que Elisabeth se evadi completamente Ella se aferr durante d as a su hija muerta y no quer a dejarla ir Christian finalmente tuvo que llev rsela y ella lo odi por ello por eso No puedo creerme que no entienda que tan duro era para l ver a su mujer abrazar durante d as el cuerpo muerto de su hija As que ella se enfrasca en una espiral de odio y depresi n Se mete en la cama y deja a Christian con todo, con su propio dolor, con el dolor de Elisabeth, con el dolor de toda la familia y tambi n cuidando de la hija que ya ten an algo de lo que Elisabeth se olvid por completo As que despu s de seis semanas en las que Elisabeth se tumb en la cama sin nada m s que eso, dormir y nada m s, Christian le dijo que era hora de levantarse, de intentar superar el dolor Joder todav a ten a una hija que la necesitaba Y no sab is, no sab is lo que le dijo Dios me doli hasta a m le dijo literalmente que l no hab a amado a la ni a

This Regret but was also so excited their story would continue It s always been you, Christian Since the moment I realized I was in love with you when I was eighteen, I never stopped And I promise you, I m not ever going to If Forever Comes is written in a unique format It starts in the present time with Christian drinking in a bar, hurt and damaged by Elizabeth pushing him away As the reader we do not know what event happened to cause Elizabeth and Christian to be apart It is written in alternating perspectives between Christian Elizabeth as well as past present from months earlier, switching from chapter to chapter It is almost like starting the book backwards and we find out what happened between the two near the end It d broken Elizabeth Cruelly Savagely In Turn, she d shattered me I love Ms Jackson s writing style, her stories are so mature, so real, and so raw and If Forever Comes stayed true to that form My heart breaks for what these two have to deal with time and time again They cannot seem to catch a break and just be happy for longer than a day I was able to predict what was going on by the situations but I think that was the author s intentions It was still very hard to read about when the past was retold, brought tears to my eyes because it is so real Stay away from her Do you understand me This is my family Did you see that ring on her finger Do you think this is a game That woman belongs to me She always has and she always will Don t think for a second you can take her from me She will love me until the day she dies I love Christian he proves he is still the man who came back for Elizabeth and his daughter Elizabeth this time around just annoyed me she has this man who adores her, who would walk on glass for her and she pushes him away Her thoughts just drove me insane because I could not understand it I adored her character in the past but I really was annoyed with her this time around Their daughter is still adorable I can t believe how big she has gotten As I said in previous reviews, I usually do not care for children s characters in books but I love Lizzy She is adorable As much as I love their story and Christian, If Forever Comes just wasn t for me I did not like how the two were apart for so long during the book I wanted interaction between them and dialogue It was a lot of inner thoughts and I needed from the characters and story Like I said the writing was phenomenal but the story just didn t catch me in this time It just felt like too much for the characters to go through with everything else that has happened Also the beginning with glimpses of the past was just too much sex they were always having sex and I was just reading to get to the real story It was just too much in a short amount of time The ending was very sweet and perfect to read The epilogue future was a few chapters long and goes years into the future I felt like I was able to get complete and total closure from Christian and

immature, she says she loves Christian but her actions don t prove that I wouldn t want her to be my mother that s for sure I wouldn t want her to love me either with the way her emotions flip flop I mean I can t even begin to understand what it must be like to lose a child but she didn t miraculously conceive on her own It was part of the man too so again I think the lack of communication is stupid and uncalled for I m sad really, I could have done without seeing this end to things and just made it up in my mind from where the first book ended This just brings down the whole vibe of the first book and I may need to re rate that one I just hates books where grown people that have already been through so much and lost so much time together and should value communication make the same tired mistakes over and over Same empty promises and empty endearments Well this book would be a return for me I guess I get my 3 back Maybe I could buy a Kristen Ashley book and cheer myself up flag

We don t know why, but they have been apart for a few months now.When I read this, I was thinking to myself, ARE YOU SERIOUS Okay, whatever, moving on So there s flipping back, to happy memories before all the stuff happened to present, to not happy memories after all the stuff that happened.I didn t care for the flashbacks, because I knew something would happen to cause them to fall apart, so sure, I got some steamy scenes and happy and giggles, but what s the point It s not lastingEN we get to the part where we find out what happened and of course, it was obvious, typical and I just couldn t believe Elizabeth and Christian both acted the way they acted.JUST WORK IT OUT PEOPLE I could understand if this was the first problem, I felt like Elizabeth and Christian went through so much already, that this conflict was just not needed.Oh and there was a part where I was angry, frustrated, I almost put this as DNF, but the book was so short, I finished it out.There was no point to this book, it was just added conflict, drama and a lot of angst It wasn t for me.Series Order REVIEW flag 6 likesLike see review View 1 comment Sep 07, 2017 Rejane rated it did not like it review of

grieves on their own way Anyway, it became a very unpleasant reading If memory serves me right she even flirted with another man, father of one of her daughter s friend The hero because he was had to fight for the relationship and give her all the time she needed I would tell her to fuck herself and let her go to hell and drown on her misery With my help I have zero patience for pity party and

poco en Cuidado, esta rese a puede tener spoilers If Forever Comes es el segundo libro de la serie Take This Regrets, escrito por A L Jackson y continua narrando la historia de Elizabeth y Christian, protagonistas de la saga.Tenia este libro en mi lista de pendientes desde hacia meses, despues de terminar de leer el primer libro, pero luego lei tantas rese as que decian lo triste y dramatica que era la historia que decidi aplazar la lectura para otro momento.Al comenzar la lectura me costo un poco engancharme con la trama, sobre todo porque habia pasado tanto tiempo desde que lei el libro anterior que se me habian olvidado muchos detalles de la historia, ademas el libro comienza de una forma peculiar , ya que empieza narrando el futuro y luego retrocede varios meses para contarnos lo que ocurio y provoco la situacion sobre la que leemos en el primer capitulo.Es un libro que se lee muy rapido, tiene un ritmo muy natural y fluido que no se hace tedioso en ningun momento, aunque reconozco que en algunas ocasiones mientras leia deseaba que el drama acabara y los protagonistas tuvieran su final feliz.Creo que para poder entender por lo que pasa Elizabeth tienes que ser madre y aun no lo he sido por lo que quizas no puedo llegar a comprender la magnitud de perder a un hijo, sobre todo de la forma en la que ella lo pierde, de lo que si estoy segura es que la autora hace un trabajo increible narrandonos el dolor de Elizabeth y Chrstian, quizas me hubiera gustado mas este libro si A L Jackson no se hubiera ensa ado tanto con la pareja protagonista, senti que fue demasiado desgarradora la forma en la que se desarrolla todo en este libro, sinceramente esperaba una conclusion a esta serie un poco mas alegre y light, aun asi no me arrepiento de haberla leido porque al fin y al cabo el final de Elizabeth y Christian estuvo a la altura de su historia de amor.3 Estrellas flag 5 likesLike see review Sep 21, 2013 Maggie rated it it was amazing review of another edition

This book was filled with angst than the other two books and I really wanted direct contact and tender moments between the characters.That being said, the writing was beautiful and the story was wonderful When I picked up the book, I was immediately shocked by the storyline and kind of figured out what was going to happen, but I had to read to find out the details I think Christian and Elizabeth are two of my favorite characters in a series SPOILERS I was taken in from the start of the story but was trying to figure out how Elizabeth and Christian had drifted so far apart I loved that it was love lost and then found and now the added component of a marriage and a baby to make the family complete.I definitely felt for Elizabeth throughout the book, but there were definitely times I wanted to smack her and ask her to come out of her grieving period.Christian was all man throughout the book and did everything he could to make Elizabeth see that he still loved her The neighbor was sleazy but I thought the story could have had a little depth were the fight for Elizabeth was concerned.I was so afraid there would not be a HEA ending for Christian and Elizabeth and was thrilled that there was and that they got the family they wanted.Excellent and enjoyable read by one of my favorite authors that is on my MUST READ AS SOON AS HER BOOKS COME OUT list flag 4 likesLike

powerless to help in the situation It is clear that they still love each other deeply, but their love is severely tested It is difficult, raw, gut punching, and sad My heart broke so many times for both of them and what they were going through I m scared that when you and I are together, I m so happy It feels like every time I give myself to you, I m hit with the worst kind of devastation I m scared of what you make me feel It s so intense that sometimes it s overwhelming ElizabethWe d been blindsided, our foundation ripped from beneath us, nothing there to catch us when we fell And when we d fallen, we had completely fallen apart I d been standing on the sidelines, waiting Waiting when I should have been fighting Christian Will they be able to put the pieces back together one time Every book I read by A.L Jackson astounds me with it s intensity, longing, and pain that is tempered by moments of true bliss and joy We see Christian and Elizabeth at both ends of the spectrum throughout this story and it is very powerful My stomach was in knots the entire time I felt every emotion along with them from happiness to tears And yes, I bawled like a baby But all along I had to have hopehope for Elizabeth, for Christian and for their daughter Lizzie who is such a bright light even in the darkest times I will admit that when I heard that there would be a sequel for this couple, I was not sure we needed it We learned about their beginnings in Lost to You And it seemed at the end of Take This Regret that there future would be bright and they were together But this book just made me realize how much I love this couple and their little family And even though it was hard and painful to read at times, they really did have story to tell and I was not disappointed A.L Jackson is a genius with creating complex characters with deep emotions, intense need, and dealing with difficult circumstances that test them to the limits I cannot recommend this series enough
