This Time, Forever : A Second Chance Romance ; Reluctant Romances Book 4 Kindle Edition
When you love someone, let them go…
Tazeen has grown up believing her life's purpose is to be the best wife and mother. But when she's unable to be a mother and is only a convenient wife at best, she decides she wants more. She wants what her friends have - love, partnership, purpose, a fulfilling life.
Jawad's entire life crumbles when Tazeen asks for a divorce. His love for his wife is more than anything he's ever known and yet, it doesn't seem to be enough.
Struggling to balance their unspoken but deep love for each other with their expectations from life, Jawad and Tazeen forget reality for a moment and step into a world of pretence. And in that world of make-believe, they find everything they've ever dreamed of...
But will that be enough? What happens when what they want isn't what people expect of them? Will they give in or will they define their own reality?
This Time, Forever is Book 4 in the Reluctant Romances series by Andaleeb Wajid.
Praise for This Time, Forever
They don't make men like Jawad anymore and so Andaleeb Wajid had to write so we could spend our days lost in unattainable dreams. I would fight Tazeen for him, both in reality and in fiction – Shilpa Suraj
I’ve been waiting for this story ever since Andaleeb began the series, and I have to say that it was worth the wait! Jawad is as swoon-worthy as I thought he would be, and Tazeen is the perfect foil for him. All in all, a must read! – Apeksha Rao
Tazeen & Jawad make you mad… and then make you madly fall in love with them! Their journey of discovering themselves & each other is so beautiful & sumptuous! Andaleeb has a tremendous way with words. They instantly capture your heart & take you on a wild ride! I haven’t been the same after being introduced to Jawad. My heart is now aflutter! – Lubna Sayed
Jawad and Tazeen's story is sizzling, literally - with the amazing, unexplored chemistry they both share and figuratively with the undercurrents of what's happening in their relationship and their lives. It's a wonderful reminder that different people have different expectations from their relationships, and that communication is really the best key to a happy, successful marriage. Jawad is a total dream, matched beautifully with the perfection of Tazeen. Can't wait for readers to experience their magic! - Namrata Sadhvani

"It is the lack of communication that leads to an unhappy marriage". This holds true for Tazeen and Jawad.
Tazeen asks for a divorce from Jawad as she feels that there's something amiss in their relationship and in her life. And after seeing her siblings in love and having careers, she too wants the very same spark and a feeling of being worthwhile. Jawad is shocked and shattered as he loves her, but both being introverts, aren't able to express their feelings. It is after the realisation that they would never be in each other's life again that they start acknowledging their feelings and working on their marriage. Their rediscovering each other, forging a friendship is a joy to read and is narrated so beautifully and sensitively. Their sizzling chemistry is electrifying and in a way helps them to find their missing mojo.
At the start, I was annoyed at Tazeen for playing Jawad as per her whims and convenience, but as you get to know her, you empathize with her and why she took such a big decision. Her vulnerability and insecurity is so relatable and you start loving her. And Jawad, what do I say about him! I am totally and completely swooning over him. He is adorable, sexy, sensitive, loving and the best husband ever. In short, he is Perfection. He is the star of the story. Sorry Nazish and Yasir, but now this is my favourite in this series. One of the hottest book I've read, this one is highly recommended. Waiting for Iqra's story ❤️
Loved the way Jawad is developed. One of the best husbands. He's hot, intense, understanding and reserved. One who tries using his intensity to out across his feelings. Always in love, considerate and the one who reads what his wife feels and tries to improve his relation with her. He's hurt and shocked when Tazeen asks for divorce. For someone who has always loved her, he's never been able to express his feelings and this creates misunderstanding between them.
Tazeen has always loved Jawad, but when she sees her other cousins, brother and sister having a romantic equation with their partners she starts craving for that. She sees them using sign languages and making efforts to spend more time with each other away from others she starts feeling the gap in her own. Both introverts are never able to express what they feel and a distance starts creeping in.
I loved the way they start coming out of their comfort zones and make the other realize what is missing. A coming of age love story which moves strength to strength.
Beautifully crafted, this also talks about the importance of communication and how the lack of it can create chaos.
Well Written. Kudos to the author.
Loved how hot it got - the sex was off the charts ;)
I really like how Andaleeb writes , endearing both leads to readers. The male POV is as strong as the female POV, which is a rarity in romance genre.
The usually demure Tazeen, desperately in search of herself, finds hot new ways to explore her relationship with husband Jawad. I nearly fell of my seat when I got to that particular part when they return from work! (Not spoiling it for the rest of you)
Jawad on the other hand is such a ladies’ man. They don’t make men like him in the real world anymore. He is all about love, trust, respect, and completely in awe of his wife evens when she wants to divorce him.
This novel explores a different reality in marriages where couples get complacent about expressing their love and it is such a wonderful read.
If you have read the Reluctant Romances series, which is highly recommended, Starville Towers is known to you.
Tazeen is struggling to figure out her life, and has asked Jawad for a divorce... She's looking for a HEA just like her siblings , something that's missing in her marriage... my heart goes out to Tazeen and Jawad when I see their love and their struggle to express themselves.... but Tazeens bold moves, thanks to her gang of girls helps bridge the distance and u r all smiles by the time u finish the book
If u think the 1st 3 books are good, this is even better, and I m sure, the best is for the last...
Waiting for 'Lucky for you'- Iqra and Saad's story
