    4.5 STARS Forever is the story of Reese, a small town girl who meets, Walker, sexy born with a silver spoon in his mouth guy Their relationship is nothing but sparks of passion balanced with love and knowledge that you have found the other half of your heart and soul Many people will say that their relationship took off too fast, but I disagree there is no proper timetable for true love Mary did a fabulous job writing amazing and credible characters with such a wide range of depth A characte 4.5 STARS Forever is the story of Reese, a small town girl who meets, Walker, sexy born with a silver spoon in his mouth guy Their relationship is nothing but sparks of passion balanced with love and knowledge that you have found the other half of your heart and soul Many people will say that their relationship took off too fast, but I disagree there is no proper timetable for true love Mary did a fabulous job writing amazing and credible characters with such a wide range of depth A character is an interpretation of the author s sense of reality, and I think Mary nailed it, especially with Walker He was sexy, oh so sweet yet he knew what he wanted and he wasn t afraid to say so The sex was hot and left me needing to fan myself a couple of times I really liked how the author broke the story into two parts Reese s tale told the story of how she and Walker came together, and the difficulties they faced finding the balance in a world that seemed to be stacked against them Walker s tale told a much stronger and emotional filled story of truth and agony when you experience utter loss You felt his hurt and cheered for all his attempts to right the wrong, but there is only so much one person can endure By the end of this book, I just could not believe the story that was unfolding with every swipe of my kindle And the end, I did not see coming To me it ending in the most perfect of way, with plenty of things to think about not to mention questions by the dozens But, isn t that what you want from a story I really enjoyed taking this journey with Reese and Walker and I look forward to the next installment Kudos to Mary for a wonderful story

    So disappointed Novels like this REALLY piss me off because I can t stand a finish like this They basically cut Reese out of the novel and the man that claimed to love her slept with another woman and moved on Argh, what a crock

    3.5 stars Review also posted on Book Lovin MamasForever is my first book by Mary Wasowki and I love being able to find new to me authors through blog tours I was intrigued by Forever due the synopsis of the book and since it s New Adult, I needed to feed my addiction to the genre.Forever is about Reese Mitchell and Walker Reed and how they end up falling in love with each other The poor girl Reese has a rough life Her parents are no longer with her and she s had some very extreme circumstanc 3.5 stars Review also posted on Book Lovin MamasForever is my first book by Mary Wasowki and I love being able to find new to me authors through blog tours I was intrigued by Forever due the synopsis of the book and since it s New Adult, I needed to feed my addiction to the genre.Forever is about Reese Mitchell and Walker Reed and how they end up falling in love with each other The poor girl Reese has a rough life Her parents are no longer with her and she s had some very extreme circumstances happen to her that made her uncomfortable She has her grandparents and her friend Freddy, but the minute she meets Walker, her whole life takes a 360 She s immediately drawn to the sexy stranger that has grown up privileged and already has a career passed down to him thanks to his father She is going to realize though that Walker has one of the family members in his family that is not taking it kindly that she is with Walker Now her love with Walker will be tested in Forever and if their relationship will be able to stay together forever.There were definitely twists and turns in Forever for the characters There were times that Reese drove me crazy especially at the beginning of the story I was a little weary on how she fell for Walker so fast, and then at the end what happened to her The poor girl deserved some happiness though and she never had it easy Her life would be great one moment and the next moment she was being knocked down I felt bad for her Walker on the hand, he was infatuated with Reese throughout the book He fell for Reese just as fast as she did, but he did have a jealously side He really ticked me off towards the end of the book though He did a 360 in character after an incident and he gave up, but he still had feelings It was confusing at times because I thought he was actinglike a girl than Reese was with his feelings.The reasoning behind 3.5 stars is due the fact I m in a Creative Writing class and it makes me over think things when I read now The beginning of the book went by so fast, I had to re read some parts to make sure I read it correctly, and it seemed to slow down a bit in the middle once Mary switches from Reese s POV to Walker s POV For example, Reese meets Freddy so quickly than all of a sudden she s meeting Walker the same way It sped up again at the time, but it wasn t as bad as the beginning I really enjoyed the different POV s, but was confused when Walker s Dad came in the mix I did like the idea of his POV in the story because of what was happening just needed a warning ahead of time Mary did great building up the angst once the truth came out with Walker s Dad and what was happening I was in shock on what was really happening.I do recommend this book to New Adult readers out there and I look forward to reading the next book in the series I need to find out what is going to happen between Walker and Reese Mary left me hanging on what is going on with Reese and of course what is going to happen to Walker after what he went through He went through a big emotional turn at the end Yup I will admit tears were falling at the end.Be ready for an emotional roller coaster in Forever and be ready for twists and turns you weren t expecting to happen It s New Adult so you definitely may feel the need to cuss the characters out At least that is what I did to Walker at times I received a complimentary copy of the book for the blog tour in exchange for an honest review

    2.5 Stars I don t know how to describe what I m feeling is this what instant connection feels like Because if it is, I have never felt this way before, and I need to get a better handle on it In this book we meet Reese and Walker who have an instant connection and easily fall in love with each other Reese had some tragedies while growing up and is surprisingly well adjusted even after everything that had happened She decides to move from Georgia to NYC to live with her best friend, Freddy, 2.5 Stars I don t know how to describe what I m feeling is this what instant connection feels like Because if it is, I have never felt this way before, and I need to get a better handle on it In this book we meet Reese and Walker who have an instant connection and easily fall in love with each other Reese had some tragedies while growing up and is surprisingly well adjusted even after everything that had happened She decides to move from Georgia to NYC to live with her best friend, Freddy, who I absolutely adored Walker comes from an influential family and has a dynasty awaiting him when he graduates however his family is less than loving towards him They have their idea of what his future life should be like and Reese definitely does not fit in with their equation.I did enjoy the premise of the book The plot had interesting twists and turns I just found I could not connect with these characters at all I couldn t stand Walker and he just seemed like a jerk to me He was so possessive it made him do things that no girl should put up with The way he reacts to some situations just infuriated me I think another issue with not being able to connect to the characters may have been the writing I felt that a lot of important points were just thrown out there and rushed Maybe Reese could have used a novella of her youth to help us connect with her The writing just didn t flow well for me and at times made it almost impossible to follow, especially in the second half We hear from Reese point of view for the first half, and then for the second half it goes back and forth between Walker and his father although there is nothing to show when the POV changes I can t say much about the second half without ruining it for anyone but I absolutely loathed where the story went While I am all for things not having a HEA since that is what real life is about, I hated the way things ended up there I seriously wanted to jump in my Kindle and wring Walker s neck While I didn t care for him much in the first half, the second half made me despise him as a human being He is irresponsible and selfish beyond belief.This is only the author s second book I feel like maybe she needs to work on making a story flow and also needsinsight into the way the characters have come to where they are now in their lives While I will not read anyin this series even though it is intriguing that the next book takes place 17 years later because I did not enjoy the characters, I would consider reading some work from this author in the future.Reviewed by Mystery for Crystal s Many Reviewers Copy provided for honest review

    Forever is a story about love, deception, and heartbreak.Reese is a sweet southern Georgia Peach, both beautiful and innocent When we first meet her she is transferring colleges right before her senior year and moves to NYC Living in an apartment with her gay BFF love Freddy she meets the very handsome Walker Reed On track to take over the family business, Walker is being groomed by his father for bigger and better things There are a certain amount of expectations placed on Walker from hi Forever is a story about love, deception, and heartbreak.Reese is a sweet southern Georgia Peach, both beautiful and innocent When we first meet her she is transferring colleges right before her senior year and moves to NYC Living in an apartment with her gay BFF love Freddy she meets the very handsome Walker Reed On track to take over the family business, Walker is being groomed by his father for bigger and better things There are a certain amount of expectations placed on Walker from his father, one of which includes who he should and should not date.The attraction between Reese and Walker is instant and the relationship follows very quickly But even with the strong bond and love for each other there are forces trying to pull them apart..Walker s father has a few secrets and he wants Reese out of the picture, this is where all the yummy drama happens.Forever is split up into two parts, which I actually really liked The first half of the book we get Reese s story from her point of view This is where Reese and Walker first meet and the relationship beings This is also where I had some reservations about the book My biggest issue with Forever was the lightning speed at which Walker and Reese s relationship developed From a quick glance to a first date to oh so muchchicka bow wow all that in the space of just a few short chapters was too quick for me I like to get to know my characters separately, learn what makes them tick and then see the full development of their relationship I like dates and flirting, I love fun and witty conversations All of those little things that really help me connect, without it I feel as if I am just being told a story instead of feeling as if I am part of the story.So while I liked both Reese and Walker it wasnt until the end of the book that I really felt the connection.Initially in the beginning of the book Walker came across as temperamental and jealous which isn t a good combination His actions or better yet his reactions to certain circumstances didn t seem all that necessary or called for and turned me off a bit In the second half of the book however, Walkers half, I found myself liking him and connecting with him a bitI don t want to give too much away about this second half of the book but this is where it got good and really held my interest It s were you get all of the drama, excitement, heartbreak and that twist.Mary Wasowski did a good job at creating an intriguing plot line and while I did have some issues with the book that ending totally hooked me It has piqued my interest enough to want to continue with the series as see how Reese and Walkers story plays out
