Forever and Always
This was a beautifully written story about young love that starts out magical and carefree, but is faced with some hard knocks dealt by misunderstandings and life in general.
This book pulls you in from the very beginning. You fall in love with every single character in this story (especially Sam Cooper <3) and become so emotionally invested in the welfare and outcome of the main characters lives. You smile, laugh, swoon, cry, and smile again right along with all of the characters. This is how it should be with every book you read. Your heart breaks over the misunderstandings, and then your heart rejoices at the resolutions. The chemistry between not only the main characters, but also the supporting characters is what makes this story flow so smoothly and beautifully, and is also what makes it so relatable. I read this book in one sitting. I couldn’t get enough.
This was the first book I’ve read by the talented Beverly Hollowed, but after reading this work of art, I can’t wait to read more of her work. You will not be disappointed after reading Forever and Always.
