Review: Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

Review:

     Forever My Girl is a very sad book. It's about second chance romance, and I expected it to be a little sad in the beginning, but then chocolate & flowers romantic by the end because the couple were high school sweethearts. Unfortunately, I still felt very low after finishing the story. I can't point the exact reason, there are a lot of the things I didn't agree with, but I would definitely recommend this book.

     Liam and Josie were the meant-to-be together couple, everyone in their town knew that would get married and have the American dream, but that dream was shattered when Liam left Josie to pursue his career in music and never contacted her for 10 years until they came face-to-face at his best friends funeral. Liam was a jerk. Plain & simple. His reasons for leaving were ridiculous and unacceptable, and on top of that, expecting everything to be back to normal, and calling Josie my girl was stupid. Give it a break, it's been ten years, not ten minutes. Josie was the sweet girl-next-door, and I really really liked her. I loved that she tried her best in everything, whether it was contacting Liam or making the right decision for her family, she was the only straight-headed person in this book. Josie really did have a big heart, but I still believe she should have made Liam work hard for that forgiveness. Nevertheless, at the end of the day I was happy with the story.

     Forever my girl is a book about forgiveness, friendships and rekindling old love. I wouldn't call it full on romance, but I did like the little bits we got in the end.


PS: After finishing this book, go here and read the letter Nick left for Josie. It did resolve a lot of things for me.

  1. Hmm, I'm not sure I want to read this or not. It sounds interesting, but I don't like books that leave me depressed at the end. I mean, I can understand sad, like in The Fault in Our Stars, but at the same time, I felt hopeful at the end of that book too.

    Does that make any sense at all? No? Yeah, I didn't think so.

    1. It does have happy ending, but the whole book was so sad that even that little happiness in the end didn't cheer me up.

  2. This entire book made me sad too (and happy - the last chapter was brilliant!) - these characters went through SO MUCH in their lives. It's incredible, really! I feel really sorry for the other guy (damn it his name escapes me right now) but I guess one really can't compete with the love that Josie and Liam have.

    Great review! :)

  3. I've been meaning to read this but something about this book makes me hesitate. I'll probably read it eventually but it's not on the top of my list. Great review! :)
