Between Now and Forever (Callaways #4)
Nicole met Ryan when he was a handsome, cocky teenager with a desire to fly high above the clouds. Ryan encouraged Nicole to dream big and promised her a lifetime of happiness, but several years into their lives together, they were faced with obstacles bigger than either had ever imagined. Their love faltered. They lost their way and considered what had once been unthinkable—the end of their forever. 

But now fate throws them a curve, an event that forces them back together, that strips their emotions bare and is both terrifying and strangely unifying. For the first time in a long while they have to face each other, and not only talk but also listen, because their lives depend on it—not only their lives, but also the life of their six-year-old son. 

Secrets and lies frame a perilous journey to the truth that takes Nicole and Ryan to Angel's Bay, a place where miracles sometimes happen. But in order to get that miracle, Nicole and Ryan must work together and learn how to trust and love each other again. Only then will they be able to save their family and find their way to happily ever after

My Review:

I have been waiting for Nicole and Ryan’s story ever since we were introduced to Brandon, because any story about them was bound to tell us about Brandon. I have been really curious about Brandon’s condition and have been hoping for a miracle for him.

Nicole and Ryan have been together since they can remember. They were so much in love! They have always been there for each other. But with Brandon being diagnosed with Autism, their different outlook of the situation wedged a gap between them, especially since instead of being each other’s priority, Brandon took up all of their energies. Sometime along the way, they just stopped talking to each other making that gap between them seem just too big to be bridged ever again. Falling for a Stranger (Callaways #3), we found out that Ryan had moved out and that they were taking a break with things moving towards a divorce. But an unexpected and heartbreaking event brings them back together. Nicole and Ryan now must work together to bring their son back home. Under dire situations, they face more than the unknown enemy, they face the truth about themselves! Will they find their way back to each other?

I have to admit that I have been fascinated by Nicole and Ryan mostly because of Brandon. An autistic child needs a lot more love and attention and it can be strenuous on the parents. I admired Nicole for never giving up upon her son and for always looking at things optimistically. Ryan on the other hand is a good father, no doubt, but feels more pessimistically about the situation. I really wanted them not to give up on each other and for them to get back together. I absolutely loved the way the author handled this particular story and Nicole and Ryan’s relationship. While the mystery took up the major part of the plot, Ryan and Nicole’s relationship was never on the back burner. The author has found the perfect balance of mystery and romance in this book. And my God, the mystery in this book was just too good – I loved the concept completely.

This has to be my favourite book in the Series.
