Review and Giveaway ~ Christal Mosley's THIS SIDE OF FOREVER




THIS SIDE OF FOREVER

Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

In the small town of Harden Fields, summer time seems to be the best time to set fire to old flames in this racy, heart-stopping romance.

Laney Oliver is ready to start a new life. Away from the small lonely town of Harden Fields, Alabama. Away from the pressures of her careless family. And away from the shadows of her broken heart. Laney is just beginning to heal after the love of her life shattered her perfect world, leaving her with no explanation. When the reason for her pain-stricken heart returns to Harden for the summer, she vows to stay away. But, she soon realizes that it may be easier said than done.

Jeremiah Cutler left Harden Fields in a rage, leaving his entire reason for existence behind. He knew that he was shattering Laney’s world, but he had to…there was no other way. Everything he did, he did for her… he just has to prove himself to her once again. Leaving Laney was a necessary fleet that he wishes he could take back, but staying away from her was never an option. Now, amidst his return, Jeremiah’s sole purpose is to win Laney’s trust back and to regain his forever at any cost.

My Thoughts:

This book was NOT paranormal in any way. You may think that from the title but it was not. It was your typical book. A girl and boy are in a relationship, the boy broke her heart and then changes his mind and vows to get her back. I had some mixed feelings about this book but overall I liked it.

I found the main characters to be a tad annoying.
*Laney kept saying over and over how her heart was broken over Jeremiah. Hearing it once or twice would have been more than sufficient. Unfortunately, I heard it more than I felt it. Also, I wouldn't have forgiven him so easily.
*Then there is Jonah. I freakin loved him and I so wish he had been the object of Laney's affection. He deserved better.
*Jeremiah, seemed a little too much like a player AND kept a huge secret from her.

This book was a fairly quick read and it was YA appropriate.

If you like to see the boy grovel and try to claim his girl, you should try this book. :-)

I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It really was a decent read with some sweet moments. I was just offended that my favorite character didn't get more attention or his own HEA.


If your boyfriend broke your heart, how long would it take for you to forgive him?

  2. I'm not sure. I'd like to say it depends on why he did it but if you really love someone you dont hurt them. So I dont know. This has a gorgeous cover. Im not sure if I want to read it yet or not but I'll keep it in mind. :)
