4Ever #1
Release: July 27, 2015
Length: 480 pages

At 24 years old, Holly Scallanger has the perfect life. Everything a girl could want; a beautiful man, a stunning home, as well as being in the midst of preparing for the wedding of her dreams. This all vanishes the night she catches her fiancé, Brandon Morgan, in bed with her worst nightmare, Donna Sinclair, just a week before Holly is set to walk down the aisle.

Attempting to recover from his betrayal, Holly swears off the affections of men in order to pick up the pieces of her crumbling life. Unfortunately, meeting Jake 'Hooligan' Peters is not part of her plan. The tall, dark-haired and handsome as hell med student, sweeps Holly away from the pain of her past and reveals to her the bright future that lies ahead. That is, until she falls pregnant just as Jake begins his internship at P&E; his family's hospital.

Will this love at first sight lead her to the fairytale she has always craved? Or, will she fall victim to a betrayal of the heart yet again?

My Review

Copy provided in exchange for an honest review

Why? Why did I start this book without noticing that there isn't even a release date for its sequel??? As you can probably guess, this book ends in a cliffhanger and I'm extremely disappointed!

I'm not going to get into the plot because I want people to read the book, however, this review contains some spoilers. BE WARNED!!

I almost DNF'd this book. For the first 15-20%, all Holly did was go back and forth about whether she should have just stayed with her lying, cheating ex-fiance. She was soooooo freaking weak!! And her reasoning was absolutely asinine! Her inner monologue was annoying and all other characters made her interesting. I didn't even like the story until Jake appeared. He was the reason I kept reading. I really wish I could have seen some of his POV but I guess that would probably defeat the purpose of leading us to the cliffy.

Was anyone else pissed off by Holly's actions towards the end? I get her initial anger when Jake answered the phone and told her "it is what it is", but she has a brain right? She did no further investigation, didn't even consult her bestie, and took off??? Knowing she has an at risk pregnancy??? WTF??!! And to abandon her bff without notice or a phone call for over 4 years was completely unacceptable. She showed her ass with her actions!

I hope that not only does Holly smarten the heck up in book 2, but that also the horrid plot device of miscommunication doesn't get dragged out for too long. Otherwise I might have to DNF that book too.
