Forever and a Minute by Zoe Adams
Published: January 5, 2021
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Zoe Adams writes short books that deal with the complexities of love. She can craft the good, the bad, and the ugly in such an artistic and honest way. She frames her stories in such an artful way that is both sensual and raw.
“She was Natasha Matthews, the goddess of beauty.”
Tasha has officially grown up, and she stayed in Australia. She is running a successful modeling agency and owns several art galleries. It would seem she achieved everything she ever dreamed- except Tasha is lonely.
This book picks up 15 years after we last saw Tasha, as she had just sat down to fly to Australia. Tasha made Australia her home, and she cemented her name with her successes. She happens to find a teenage neighbor upset in the elevator one evening, which leads to an unlikely friendship.
Merissa wants to be a model more than anything, but her mom is the opposite of supportive. Katie forbids it. But after Mer meets and befriends Tasha, the two of them start working on Merissa’s modeling behind Katie’s back.
Mer adores her father. He lives in America and is a photographer. He supports Mer in every venture she takes. Since her parents are divorced, she doesn’t see her dad as often as she would like, but they frequently contact her.
Merissa and Tasha convince Katie to allow Mer to make her official debut as a model, signed to Tasha’s agency. Who knew the spotlight would shine so brightly on Tasha?
This is the fifth and final book in the Anything for Love series. It’s a tad bittersweet, but I am so happy with how Zoe wrapped the series.
This book is a mix between plot-focused and steamy scene focused. I enjoyed the connection between Tasha and Merissa; the similarities between the two were very well played.
It was awesome seeing Tasha as a successful businesswoman. After getting her start as a married man’s muse and then skyrocketing to fame as an actress and model. Tasha has made it to the top of her career path. She is now the one calling the shots.
The women in this book are strong, smart, driven, and in control of their lives. It is refreshing to read about strong females who are unafraid to go after what they want and are unapologetic about it.
This was the best way this series could have been wrapped. Every character was treated the way they deserved. I enjoyed this series. The progression Zoe makes is fantastic. The storyline is strong, it’s feisty, and it’s steamy. After reading this book, I am satisfied! I’m also ready for the nest series from Zoe Adams.
