Saving Forever - Part 1 (Saving Forever #1)


Charity Thompson wants to save the world, one hospital at a time. Instead of finishing med school to become a doctor, she chooses a different path and raises money for hospitals – new wings, equipment, whatever they need. Except there is one hospital she would be happy to never set foot in again--her fathers. So of course he hires her to create a gala for his sixty-fifth birthday. Charity can’t say no. Now she is working in the one place she doesn’t want to be. Except she’s attracted to Dr. Elijah Bennet, the handsome playboy chief. 
Will she ever prove to her father that’s she’s more than a med school dropout? Or will her attraction to Elijah keep her from repairing the one thing she desperately wants to fix?

Saving Forever - Part 4


This is Part 4 of a 4 book series 
Book 1 of this series is FREE! 

When Dr. Elijah Bennet proposed to Charity, she said yes. There were doubts in the back of her mind but she understood one thing; she loved him and did not want to be without him. She could handle any of the reservations or uncertainties that might arise. 

The complicated relationship with her father seemed to be travelling down a road she never believed they would ever find. Could they really be making amends? 

As life begins to come full circle, the things Charity has so longed for seem within her reach. A life within the walls of the medical world, a husband, a family including her father, are all no longer a fleeting dream. 

Just as everything turns into the childhood fairy tale she has always dreamt about, complications arise and Charity’s hopes may be wrenched from her grasp. 

How big do you dream? How much are you willing to risk for love?

★★★★ Our 4 Star Reviews ★★★★

Part 1:

Short but sweet!

After losing her mother suddenly to cancer, Charity Thompson quit medical school to concentrate on fundraising for hospitals like the one that tried to help her mom. This did not help her already rocky relationship with her father, a successful and well-respected doctor himself. Even knowing this would drive another wedge between them, Charity had to follow her heart. Despite their differences, she could not say no when her Dad asked for her help in planning a hospital gala fundraiser in honor of his sixty-fifth birthday. Juggling a new assignment in a different city, Charity had a juggling act to perform and was unprepared when the Chief Surgeon at her father’s hospital suddenly became more than another set of helping hands. And what would her father say?

This is the first in a four-part serial romance that is short but satisfyingly sweet. The loss of her mother, the strained relationship with her father and the budding romance between her and the resident Chief was told in a comfortable, conversational writing style. I couldn’t help but feel for Charity as she struggled with the career choice she made while still seeking her Dad’s approval. Despite her success in her new career choice, she still felt the sting of his disapproval. Being attracted to her Dad’s colleague brought another dimension to an already complicated situation. Could she risk a relationship with another doctor – one whose schedule was as busy – if not busier – than her own father’s? Hearing about his many romantic exploits at the hospital didn’t help either. An interesting end to part one has a medical emergency butting into their romantic evening. Am looking forward to the next in the series!

Part 2:

Family was not always easy…

This is part two of a four part serial. Charity Thompson is a hospital fundraiser who is juggling work commitments and a new romantic relationship while trying to rebuild a connection with her father. Charity accepted a two-year contract in Atlanta but could not say no to her father when he asked for her help in organizing a hospital function in his honor. Commuting to New York seemed a small price to pay. As the story continues, Charity is happily surprised when her new beau, Dr. Elijah Bennet, joins her in Atlanta during a milestone evening gala. A family emergency calls Elijah home to his native New Zealand and, despite her misgivings, she decides to join him. Unfortunately, things did not go as planned and leaving early to return home found Charity wondering if their fledgling relationship would survive. As Christmas approached, Charity found herself sharing a holiday meal with both of the men in her life – would this provide the healing they all needed or would it drive them even further apart?

This continuation of Charity’s story brought more insight into her broken relationship with her Dad as well as seeing things with Elijah move forward. While Elijah was an extremely successful surgeon, and could have his pick of romantic partners, not everything was perfect in his life. His problems with family seemed to mirror Charity’s own and provided much of the backdrop to this installment. With their own relationship now in trouble, I did find it interesting that two highly successful professionals, whose careers were all about problem-solving, immediately fell into silence to (not) deal with their issues. This is another well-written installment with only minor editing issues. The loving is hot while the drama is tension-filled - I am looking forward to seeing where this will go!

Part 3

I did not see this coming!

The third in the series ably carries on from the last with Charity and Elijah continuing to move forward in their relationship. Work commitments on both sides do not work in their favor as distance feeds uncertainty and jealousy. Even though Charity felt she had a breakthrough with her Dad over the holidays this seems to have re-opened old wounds even further. Though happy, and successful, as a hospital fundraiser, her Dad refuses to give up hope she will follow in his footsteps and complete her medical education. With her Dad’s influence providing an opportunity to continue her medical studies, and Elijah applying his own influence to see her back in New York full-time, she feels the pressure building. Her feelings for Elijah continue to grow as she sees the success of another event in Atlanta before coming back to New York for her father’s own gala. Surprises are around every corner and not all are pleasant. Parental pressure and career uncertainty may be the least of Charity’s worries!

In my opinion, serials have a challenge to keep the reader eagerly anticipating the next in the series. While I’m not a fan of cliffhangers (my e-reader really dislikes being thrown across the room as I am left hanging by a book) a serial still needs to provide a hook or reason for me to want to come back. This chapter provided me with that and more with its hot romance, angst, jealousy and drama. The climax was a real surprise with the ending what I was thirsting for. I can’t wait for the final installment!

Part 4

A great end to the series

Charity and Elijah were getting married! Despite the many obstacles, including a long-distance romance, a crazy stalker and struggles with family, they were ready to take the next step. Recovering from the shooting, Charity found herself happier than she thought she could be. Elijah was everything that she never knew she wanted. The planets were aligning and the wedding was fast-tracked to happen at Elijah’s home in New Zealand. Shaky from the hearing and despite her misgivings about her future mother-in-law, she wasn’t going to let that stand in the way of having the small, intimate ceremony she envisioned for her wedding. Her wedding dress seemed to just drop into her lap which should have given a clue that the shoe had to drop in a different way. A medical emergency in the midst of the festivities threatened her hard-won happiness but family would be there, as always, to see her through.

This fourth, and last, installment of the Saving Forever series brought with it a satisfyingly happy ending. The last year brought many ups and downs to her life but Charity kept true to herself and met each challenge and setback head on. A strong and self-confident heroine, I couldn’t help but cheer her and Elijah on through each roadblock. While I had some misgivings about the “playboy” at first, he seemed to be a mixed blessing until each crisis revealed his true colours.With the story being spread out over four distinct installments, drama abounded in each but it never seemed soapy or over the top. A nod to family, sticking true to yourself and keeping yourself open to love - a highly enjoyable series!
