A Forever Kind of Guy
Book#2, The Braddock Series
To her forever is a lie. But he’s a forever kind of guy.
Hayley Christopher’s high-profile divorce has given her a healthy suspicion of “happily ever after.” While she struggles to get her life back on track, temporary custody of her troubled nephew Fletcher highlights her every inadequacy. And her new landlord is an old crush whose parenting skills put hers to shame.
After the death of his wife, Ray Braddock walked away from his life. But now he’s back, rebuilding his business and thinking maybe he can even learn to trust again. He’s drawn to Hayley—and the silent little boy at her side—even though he may never convince her three broken people could make a whole family.
Hayley watches as Ray bonds with a silent Fletcher. Ray’s patience and persistence overcome her resistance and erode the walls around her heart. Ray might be the one good choice she is finally ready to make. But can she prevent Fletcher’s gang-connected father from traumatizing him again and following through on his threats to destroy her and those she loves?
Reviews for A Forever Kind of Guy
“I read your Braddock Brotherhood series this week–I was deeply touched many times, especially by A Forever Kind of Guy.”
“…Built on a platform of past regrets, this emotional story has full power to draw the reader in. With characters that are complex, believable, and likable, this is both a plot and character driven story. There are so many touches of real life situations that it’s hard not to somehow relate to one of the characters situations. Hayley and Ray have a long way to go in putting their fears and pasts behind them, but the journey towards that goal is one not to be missed.
What’s not to like about a happily ever after for two people that have been through hell and back, but yet manage to stay strong in the meantime? If you still believe in forever, then don’t miss this gut wrenching, intense book about life, loss, and love in A Forever Kind of Guy.”
“…This is a great read. Heart-warming with bits that bring tears to your eyes as well as bits that will have you laughing and sitting on the edge of your seat. Go for it; take a chance on A Forever Kind Of Guy! It is definitely worth it!.”

“Barbara Meyers loves small towns, and she portrays small town life and love very lovingly. She has the trick of endearing the reader to her characters with their ordinary human decency in a way that elevates it to real heroism.
In A Forever Kind of Guy she brings us a story in which neither the mysteries and lies of the powerful and sophisticated urban world nor the ugliness of criminal gang life can overpower small town love. This is a very reassuring world, full of warmth and genuineness and the true power of love.”
