Summary

West Golden - fierce protector. The one.

The cocky jock I once wanted to kill with my bare hands is now the only one I trust with my heart.

In a city full of corruption and dark secrets, knowing who’s on your side gets harder to determine every day. Especially now that Vin’s on the warpath, passing out threats he fully intends to see through to the end. His power here in Cypress Pointe seems limitless, and I don’t have time to see if that’s true. I’m prepared to make sacrifices to keep my family safe.

Even if what’s sacrificed is my own happiness.

As our circle of loyal friends becomes clear, we cling to it, because it’s all any of us has. And if there’s one thing Vin didn’t count on, it’s that blood isn’t always thicker than water.

He might just find out firsthand why it’s never wise to cross the king’s queen.

Forever Golden is the highly anticipated conclusion to this portion of the saga, and a lead-in to the Kings of Cypress spinoff. This book is the final installment of a trilogy and should only be listened to after completing books one and two, The Golden Boys and Never His Girl.

This series contains strong bully themes. So, if you’re not into romances where hate turns into love (...eventually), and if you don’t like your heroes of the unapologetically alpha variety, this might not be the series for you. There is no rape or dubious consent whatsoever. However, due to adult themes and sexual situations, this one’s only for the 18+ crowd.

This series is sure to give you GOssip Girl and One Tree Hill vibes, and the angst will have you resisting to pause to find out what happens next. Get lost in this series today!

Smooches,

RJ & NT

Forever Tied

West and Southside must face the one person that they know they can not defeat alone. Vin Golden is a jerk obsesses with all things money and keeping the Golden name pristine and clean, no matter what dirty things he has to do. But he didn't understand that you can't fight what West and Southside has no matter the threats you make. West and Southside soon discovers that this is a team effort and although it seems as if they are going to break, they must see this through because there can be no happiness with him around.

What a wrap!!

By the seat of my pants, I listened to this third installment of the Golden Boys. Blue had a threat on her relationship with West, timed by a mean dad. West won’t give up on his girl. There’s even politics involved… the corruption and the crime around it. I loved how Pandora became a part of the good ones against evil Vin and his pose. Blue and West stronger than ever, with their problems and obstacles and awesome friends and allies. I enjoyed their story and want to know where the brothers will get their own. The narrators also deserve a 5 star rating. I am a happy girl.

Loved this series!

Forever Golden by Rachel Jonas & Nikki Thorne
King of Cypress Prep Book 3
Narration by Lessa Lamb, Neill Thorne and Sarah Puckett.

I just loved this series!

I love bully romance, new adult books. They just pull me in and keep me engaged from start to finish. I loved it but I’m already missing it. It seems like there’s more to hear from all of the supporting characters so I’m hopeful for more from Jonas and Thorne.

This book continues on from where Never His Girl leaves us with Blue reeling from her encounter with Vic. Vic is despicable and there’s so much hidden still at the start of this final book about Blue and West. But it’s all answered by the final scene.

I loved how things happened in this story. The writing really kept me on the edge of my seat waiting to hear what would happen next. I loved meeting more of Wests family especially his grandfather. Now I think everyone needs a granddad like him! And those crazy cousins too! That scene of truth or dare was hilarious and funny. Wes really is prefect for Blue and in the end Ricky even realized it.

Only regret was not uncovering the identity of Pandora. But maybe one day we will hear her story. She surely is a puppet master.

Amazing ending to an awesome series.

The narration was superb. Lessa Lamb is fast becoming one of the voices that represents an edgy youthful spirited woman whenever I hear her performances. Neill was also brilliant as West and Ricky, I loved how they’re relationship grew in the end and how fiercely protective both of them were of both Blue and Char. Sarah Puckett is amazing as the sleuthing secretive gossip Pandora. I loved everything about this series, the writing, the story and the narration.

Excellent book!!! Fantastic Narrators!

I loved this book, as I did the first book! South-side and West fit perfectly. Vin, West’s father, gave her an ultimatum at the end of book one and I was fit to be tied for her! She does the right thing and comes clean to all the right people!!! And who would have thought that Pandora would be the one to assist them!!

Everything about these two books made me want more! There is a LOT happening in them, multiple storylines that all fit together to make this a great read…. An even better listen!!! I recommend this 100%.

Wes and Blue!

Wes and Blue are not only united in love, but they are united in ensuring that justice is levied against a mutual enemy. Their search for information has them spending some time with West’s family in Louisiana and they are an intriguing group of personalities that you definitely want to see more of.

When they return their plan is set in motion and with the help of their siblings, an unlikely ally and Pandora they are determined to ensure their enemy is dealt with and that those they care about are protected.

Intrigue, surprises and a great cast of secondary characters as Wes and Blue fight for the future they both deserve. The narrators for Wes and Blue were a great match for the characters and the narrator for Pandora added some humor in this drama filled story. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

perfect 👌

Lessa, Neill and Sarah were the perfect Narrators... they did the book justice as they did the previous ones.

The Golden Boy Cousins- BRILLIANT-what a handful one of my fave scenes was the Truth and Dare game.

Dane and Joss-*huge sigh* talk about chemistry- Their book is going to be explosive #Couplegoals


Pandora???? Im not going to lie i like the mystery. I loved her hashtag posts

And Ricky *huge sigh* Ricky, Ricky, Ricky- loved him- he and West- #bromanceinthemaking😄

5+stars from me

Love this series!

What an amazing conclusion to West and Blue's story. All of the drama, suspense and danger kept me on the edge of my seat until the very end. I was surprised, though, that we still don't know who Pandora is although I see that Dane and Joss have their own story which is next in the series so hopefully we'll find out in that book. Either way, this is a series that I highly recommend. Lessa Lamb, Neill Thorne, and Sarah Puckett all did an amazing job bringing this story to life.

Brilliant audiobook for a superb story!!

I'm addicted to this series, the bully trope is so good. Blue and West's story was fantastic. I liked the multiple POVs, the story got me and I truly got immersed in the story while hearing the audiobook narrated by Lessa Lamb, Neill Thorne, and Sarah Puckett, they certainly gave life to the characters. It's absolutely a must-hear or read if you like these tropes. The story is fast-paced, you won't get a minute to slow down, which is quite good.

Omg!

I was sat on the edge of the seat almost biting my nails anticipating where this was going. It’s stupid o’clock in the middle of the night and I couldn’t stop listening until it finished . I was so happy things turned out the way they did but this has left me with a huge book hangover.

Forever Golden

Yes! Yes! Yes! This book was everything I wanted and more. This is the third book in the Kings of Cypress Prep series. Blue and Wes are everything you want in an all encompassing love. They will stop at nothing to take down Vin once and for all. What an epic series! Loved it! Lessa Lamb, Neill Thorne, and Sarah Puckett did a phenomenal job narrating this series.

Fantastic end to West and Blue’s story

Book 2 had me hanging from the edge and this book did not disappoint. I was enthralled from beginning to end. So much was finally revealed in this book (mindblown)! It’s definitely a must read!

As always, Narration was ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Outstanding Trilogy!

This is the third and final book in the amazing Kings of Cypress Prep Series. I like this Trilogy! Blue and West's story continues where the second book left off. The storyline is fast-paced, suspenseful, complex, and captivating, filled with mystery, secrets, and twists and turns. This is an outstanding conclusion to this fantastic series. The supporting characters are great and intriguing. Queen Pandora, the gossip girl, is such an amazing character. Lessa Lamb, Neill Thorne, and Sarah Puckett did an outstanding job bringing this series to life. This is a wonderful team authors/narrators. I highly recommend this Series. #AudiobookObsession #PinkFlamingoProductions

Fabulous ending! One of my favorite 2021 listens 😊

I really loved the finale of Nikki Thorne and Rachel Jonas' contemporary M/F trilogy. I think the plot progressed really well, nothing was too rushed or overdone. We got romance, steam, humor, intrigue, action, and some BA characters and vile ones who got what was coming to them haha. I am not going to go too much into the story, because I don't want to ruin it, but these authors did a great job setting up future stories in this final book of Blue and West's love story. I can't wait til they release the other brother's stories in audio! I am interested to see how these other Goldens get their girls (and who Sterling's will be!). I also really loved the side characters introduced in this book. The adorable, southern grandpa who had snark for days haha. Loved all the cousins (even though I got a little lost when they were all introduced haha). I hope maybe Scarlett will get a menage or harem out of the deal?!?! I wouldn't want her to lose her first love but I think some of the new guys introduced would be good for her hahaha. I also reaaaaaally loved Mike's redemption. After how horrible he was, he definitely whittled Blue and myself down and it made me happy to see where things went with him. OOOOH and the developing bromance between West and Ricky haha. FYI, some twists I totally didn't see coming. I thought I had figured out Vin's big secret but was shocked when I was wrong. Again, great job to these 2 authors, I would definitely recommend this series and will be looking for more from them on audio (which is how I do most of my "reading") ❤️

In terms of narration, I honestly don't have any constructive feedback or comments because Less and Neill do a fabulous job. I thought Lessa was better in this audiobook than she has been in others I have listened to. She wasn't screechy/whiny when Blue was overwhelmed/screaming/etc. Neill did a great job with all the various characters and their emotions (especially Vin, Ricky, and West). I think having a female and male narrator really elevates an audiobook (and getting the duet narration is even better but not 100% necessary for me if the narrators aren't horrible doing their counterparts haha).

Great conclusion!

Have been waiting for this conclusion and was not disappointed. So much finally revealed. I've loved these characters and I'm so invested in them all. I look forward to more of them in another series! The only disappointment was the fact that we still don't know who is Pandora!?!? Gah!

Sarah Puckett, Neill Thorne, and Lessa Lamb are excellent narrators! Favorites of mine. They brought this story to life. Perfect performances.

Amazing Conclusion

Title: Forever Golden
Author: Nikki Thorne, Rachel Jonás
Format: Audio
Narrators: Leesa Lamb, Neill Thorne Sarah Puckett
Genre: Romance, suspense, NA
Standalone: nope This is the conclusion to the trilogy
Part of a Series: Book 3 of the Kings of Cypress Prep
POV: Blue, West, Pandora (mostly)
Steam Level: Toasty at times
5/5

The game is on in the final book of this trilogy. Book 2 ended in quite the cliffhanger and this book starts right after. But when the secret meeting becomes not so secret then things get nutty. I loved how everything came together. Secrets are revealed, dirty laundry aired and plotting was afoot. With unlikely alliances and bonds form. This is a great end to this trilogy but I also want more.

I received this audiobook for free from Audiobook Obsession and Pink Flamingo Productions. Thus is my honest and voluntary review.
