Family Is Forever by S.C. Stephens Review

4 Smooches


Julian Adams would give anything to rewind the last few months. His sister has been forever altered, a man he distrusts is now a permanent part of his family, and the woman of his dreams no longer remembers him. The only thing left for Julian to do is start over.

Nika Adams is finally content with her life. She’s forever bound to her soulmate, and helping him with a project that has given him purpose. But just when it seems peace is on the horizon, an unintended consequence of Hunter’s work arises, and everyone must pull together to find a way to keep the family safe … forever.


This is the sixth instalment of the Conversion series and we are back following the Adams family life and the consequences/situations they are now living with after the last few months. Julian is trying to cope with the fact that he still loves/wants his now ex-girlfriend despite the fact she has no memory of him thanks to it being wiped. He’s also lost his sister Nika in a way, now she’s a pure blood. Even though Nika is happy and in love with her sire Hunter, Julian struggles now they don’t have a bond. Despite all this the Adam’s are adapting to the changes in their lives but soon enough something is threatening their way of life and very being again and everyone must come together to protect the family!

“Protect the nest, no matter the cost. That was our family motto. Lately, the cost had been high.”

I’ve always loved a good paranormal story and this series doesn’t disappoint. Yes it’s a vampire romance but it kind of has a believability about it and a grown up tone. A vampire story I could actually see being real; a massive hit for me. I also loved that we followed the romance side of things in the separate view points of Julian and Nika.

“Every day is torture, and time is only making it worse. Even now without her my chest feels hollowed out, and I know that all I have to do to get rid of that feeling…is run to her.” Lowering my hands, I locked eyes with Teren. “She’s the sweetest drug, tailor-made for me.”

We have a lot of characters in this book who stand out as main characters for me- it’s a big family, a big story and there are a lot of people to love, hate, be angry at and laugh with. Julian and Nika are the clear stand out characters though as we read the story through them. I adored Nika; I thought she was really strong willed and stood up for herself; it’s wasn’t an easy situation she was in but she was always standing strong and fighting for what she believed in. Julian was also massively likeable, I really felt for him at the beginning; losing his girlfriend and, in a way, his sister. But his love for both of them really shined through and how he never wanted to give up was so admirable.

“Then you know why I can’t lose you again. I can’t. I won’t get through it. You can call me old-fashioned, you can call me sexist, but really…I’m just selfish. I can’t cope with the thought of losing you….”

This was full of drama and tense situation that kept you hooked and eager to keep turning those pages. With the vampires wanting to create peace and forge a bond between the human race and with both sides having those who disagree it’s obvious this is not going to be an easy feat! But with the drama also comes the love stories of both Julian and Nika. I love how this books is kind of two stories in a way; one about vampires and humans and the other about two couples trying to find their way to be together. If you love a paranormal story with a slightly more grown up feel to it then you will love this book!
