She’s all I could ever want…
I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away.
So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems.
But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel…
Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine…
I’ve been a fan of this series since I was sucked in by book one back in August of last year. The drama was addicting, the pace set to super speed with a superficial plot and characters, and I could not get enough. Much to my surprise the series took a turn as it began to focus on two supporting characters from book one, whom I absolutely adored. However…this conclusion just did not work for me.
I really can’t even tell you what happened in Forever. Sure there was resolution and I suppose everyone has gotten a HEA but, it’s so thinly veiled that I’m left sitting here scratching my head and questioning what the heck just happened?
Regardless of my ambivalence, I have to say that Monica Murphy is one hell of a writer. While my reaction to the watered down resolution is timid at best, her writing remained strong and engaging.
I’d say if you’re looking for a series that’s fast paced, addictive but with more of a HFN than an HEA, I’d pick this up. But if you’re the type to need a very clearly laid out ending with all T’s crossed and I’s dotted, this isn’t the read for you.
