Book Review: Welcome to Forever

Welcome to Forever (Hero's Welcome #1)
by Annie Rains

In Seaside, North Carolina, there are two kinds of people: Marines, and kids of Marines. Then there’s Kat Chandler. Recently hired as the principal of Seaside Elementary, Kat makes it her mission to turn the school into a place of peace and calm. That’s not going to be easy with hard-liner parents like Micah Peterson storming in, telling her how to do her job—and then kissing her with those gorgeous lips of his and turning her brain into mush.

As a Marine Sergeant and a single dad, Micah Peterson has just two priorities: doing his job better than anyone else, and getting the absolute best for his son, Ben. But when he meets Ben’s beautiful new principal, a different yearning shifts into focus. He wants her, sure, but he’s also moved by the connection Kat forges with her students. So after learning that she refuses to date Marines, Micah sets two more objectives: convincing Kat to give him a chance . . . and then holding on to her forever.

Welcome to Forever intrigued me from the blurb. I love a good military romance. Unfortunately for me the story fell a bit flat in terms of plot and even the characters. The writing was bland and I had a hard time connecting to the story. Micah and Kat, hero and heroine, are both grasping for friendship but find themselves intrigued with the possibility for more. Through wholesome, respectable values they find themselves enamored with one another which pushes boundaries and breaks personal rules for them both. It just never added up to enough for me to feel really moved by their story. The angst level is very low provided mostly by inner monologues. The shining light of the story for me was Ben, Micah's son. There was good message in that particular message of the story that I felt was compelling. Ben gave good reminders to the readers and also showed me a sweeter side of the life both Micah and Kat want. His presence in the book enhanced the story for me. Other issues and conflict in the book I wish the author would have dug deeper and gave me more. Some parts I felt I was given just bare bones. Another good thing about the story, for me, was I definitely wanted to see where it ended so I stuck it out. The ending turnout out to be sweet. Lovers of military, second-chance, with a great child character will enjoy this story.
