Review Tour: The Rest of Forever by Carrie Pulkinen

The Rest of Forever
by Carrie Pulkinen


GENRE:   Paranormal Romance



A guardian angel who’d rather die than fall for a human must come to terms with his tragic past when he learns his Charge is more than she seems.

April Carter is a high school history teacher who dreams of finding the perfect man to whisk her away from her small-town life. She wants it all—the husband, the house, the kids, the car. But her dreams of living the perfect life are shattered during a school shooting. ​Now she must learn to accept her fate if she's ever going to find the life she loves. ​

Damian ​Perkins ​is ​April's Guardian Angel, though no one would guess that based on his attitude. A tragic event in his past has left him bitter and resentful, and he won’t let anyone get close enough to care about him​. He's tried to make April hate him, but she sees through his abrasive exterior and awakens a part of his soul he thought had burned out long ago. Damian​ must​ let go of his past​ and​ accept his responsibilities​ ​or​ ​​he'll​ spend the rest of his existence alone and miserable​.


Excerpt Two:

Before she could even open her eyes, he smacked into her, and they both toppled to the floor. She landed flat on her back with Damian on top of her.

“For Heaven’s sake, April! You don’t Jump into someone’s home.”


He rose up on his hands, but he didn’t get up. He just looked at her. His steely gaze softened and traveled from her eyes, down to her mouth, and back up again. His hazel eyes held hers, and he looked at her like she was a lost treasure he’d finally found. She tried to convince herself the spark she felt, the heat radiating from his body, was pity. That he felt sorry for her. But she felt his arousal growing, pressing into her hip, and she couldn’t deny the hunger in his eyes.

Heat rose in her body, and just as she thought she’d be consumed by the flames, he hopped off her, pulling her to her feet. He dropped her hand and cleared his throat.

“It’s okay. I’m uh...glad you’re back.” He adjusted his pants and ran his hand through his hair. He looked at her again, his gaze traveling up and down the length of her body, and he blushed.

If she didn’t know any better, she’d think he was embarrassed. Of course, she was too, and she had to tear her gaze away from him. She looked around the room—everywhere but at him.
My Review: 4*
I have to admit after a couple of chapters I was ready to put this book down and move on. This book started out very slow for me. I did hang in there and am quite glad I did. The book ended up pulling me and I love that it brought a feeling of emotion into not only the pages but into my heart as well. 

The book is about school teacher April Carter. She wants every girls dream of love, family , and security. She is settling with the love part in order to get the family and security. Until Damien her Guardian Angel stirs feelings in her and opens her eyes to her present not so satisfying relationship. The problem with that is Damien is not looking for love and especially not with a human. Damien has been hurt before and is sour to the idea of love. April will have to work hard to make him change his mind. Can she do it?
