Mr. Forever

Mr. Forever sounded like an incredibly fun read. Dr. Caleb Paden has established a "how to" series of books that ensure healthy, happy, and long lasting marriages. Single mom, Olivia Wells, read each and every one of his books, followed the advice to a "T" and is...well, single now. When Caleb finds out that he has a son from a random one night stand, his foundation is rocked. Apparently, he doesn't really practice what he preaches. Olivia, the woman caring for the child, is aghast when she meets the doctor.

I've tried and tried to finish this book. I can't do it. Caleb is a pretentious, unlikeable, irritating hero and Olivia has a chip on her shoulder the size of Texas. Neither had me invested in the story.

Book Blurb for Mr. Forever

Marriage therapist Caleb Paden has just found out he has a son from a one-night stand, making a mockery of his core belief of stable relationships--"friendship above all physical encounters." On his way to take the child for a paternity test, a snowstorm leaves him stranded with single mom Olivia Wells, who blames his advice for breaking up her marriage. Caleb finds himself fighting the urge for the most basic of physical encounters. Olivia would like nothing more than to destroy the career he spent a lifetime building, but her maternal instincts draw her to help Caleb bond with his child. Soon, she finds herself falling for both of them. Nowhere in any of his advice does Caleb have an answer for how to make a relationship work if he loses his heart to love.
