I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

This was another free ebook I found through Book Bub. And for what it was, it was okay.

It took me a little while to get into Forever My Girl, but once I did, I enjoyed the story. After the slow start, the pacing picks up once Josie and Liam meet again, and continues on nicely through the end. The tension between these characters was believable and quite honestly, is what kept me reading, as the characters themselves were somewhat forgettable and the plot archetypal.

As far as the writing itself goes, there were some parts that could have been clearer and some grammar issues. However, it was not enough to detract completely from the story. The flashbacks were also handled well. It was always clear when we were in the present versus looking back.

Despite being an easy read, it took me a week and a half to finish this book. Frankly, I found it to be very put-downable. I will not be continuing this series. But for what it’s worth, if you enjoy easy contemporary romances, this might be up your alley. Available on both nook and kindle for $3.99 now.
