Love was a lie. After living in darkness for so long, I’d despaired over ever being blessed by its grace. Until I met him. The man who showed me hatred doesn’t always win. The man who made me his boy.
My Daddy, for now and forever….
For Seth, life no longer means endless pain.
Joy greets Seth everyday as his bond with Daddy deepens. They’ve built a world together that represents safety and comfort, and he knows that Daddy will keep him, always. Seth’s trust in him has also left him feeling strangely curious. To his surprise, he discovers he’s eager to explore new kinks.
Malcolm now knows Seth was meant for him.
The curse of being alone has lifted, and Malcolm is thankful every day that he once again has love in his life. But Seth is more than just another boy. Seth is the other part of Malcolm he hadn’t realized was missing. In addition, his boy is becoming more open and adventurous in all ways. How could he be more fortunate?
Then unexpected tragedy strikes, and both men must face that forever sometimes means starting over….
Note: Now and Forever is the final book in Malcolm and Seth’s journey of love, healing, and redemption in the Father series trilogy. The first two books, In the Name of the Father and For the Love of a Boy should be listened to prior to this one. However, you can be assured that none of the books in the Father series end on a cliff-hanger and that this age gap, daddy/boy series with lots of hurt/comfort contains a sweet forever after.

I was happy to start this book after just having finished the previous one. Seth and Malcolm were fresh in my mind. Their pain, their joy, their love…and compassion. Each man has tragedy in his past, and each man is starting to move forward into the future. Now they have each other, and that makes all the difference in the world.
But life is not yet all chocolates and roses. Seth’s past still hangs over him. He escaped a horrible conversion camp, but his father and the rest of the staff haven’t been adequately held to account…yet. My hope was that loose thread would be solved in this book and it was.
Things are finally looking like they’re getting into a nice rhythm when tragedy strikes. Nothing to do with Seth and Malcolm as a couple, but something that is going to disrupt their lives and challenge how they’ve perceived their relationship. The Daddy/boy dynamic is still there, but there are moments when Seth needs to be the one offering comfort. That’s if he’s up to the task.
I knew I was going to get a happy ending, but I didn’t correctly predict the direction it might take. And I have to say Malcolm’s parents were amazing. We should all be so lucky to be blessed with understanding and generous people in our lives.
I’m sad to see the series end, but ended perfectly so that was worth something. And I will say Nick J. Russo did an awesome job narrating the series. Worth a listen, to be sure.
