Beginning with Forever by Lan LLP (Forever Series #1) ~ review & giveaway


Love isn’t easy to forget even if you’re determined to never feel it again. It has a way of finding you when all hope is gone, resurfacing tender emotions you’ve buried deep in your core because the pain of acknowledging them is too much for you to handle.
Carson Bradley, CEO of a powerful pharmaceutical corporation is rich beyond boundaries with a missing soul. His heart faded away fifteen years ago with the death of his first love. He strives every day for the sake of his cancer research because he’s determined to eradicate it forever.
Lillian Ly is a humble, young medical student whose kind and generous heart is as vast as the universe. Being raised poor by a single parent; she matured quickly and respected the sacrifices her mother made for her. Lillian’s determination leads her down a stringent five-year path with no room for love.
When their paths cross at an unlikely place thousands of miles away from home, they both realize that fate has brought them together, and Carson will never let anything or anyone tear them apart. He knows how desolate life is without love and refuses to return to that empty place ever again.
Lillian enters Carson’s world with the purest intention of loving him with all her heart, but discovers that his volatile world will alter her uncomplicated life indefinitely. Regardless of what obstacles are thrown in their path, Lillian and Carson will endure them all to hold onto their forever from the beginning to the end.

Over a long year ago, I decided to pick up a pen and jotted down the first sentence of my vivid imagination. Those initial words were the seeds that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart. If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate the villain with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, and drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I’ve succeeded my goal. 

I'm the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t smirk! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or in my book, Mr. Hot Billionaire, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become a reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.

My Thoughts:

Okay so it started out with time warps galore. Necessary, I suppose but I'm not a fan of them none the less.

When it became present time, I enjoyed it much more. So, so, soooooo much more!

The leading man is Carson. He is a bit egotistical. He is a workaholic and cold hearted. He wasn't always that way as evidenced in the beginning. After losing someone dear to him, he shut that part of him down.

A disaster brings him and Lillian hand to foot. The attraction is immense and intense.

Lillian is a studious, hard working, medical student. She is very compassionate, caring, honest, reserved (mostly), and a little judgemental (when it comes to rich people). 

I really liked Lillian but the star of the book was Carson. He could be an ass, but he was also so very sweet. He made me melt more than once!

My only problem with him is the way he let his mother get away with certain things and the way he used kid gloves with his ex Bianca. I firmly believe that she was a relative of Bellatrix Lestrange from Harry Potter. Think evil, vile, capable of heinous acts without remorse.

With as much sweetness and romance as there was, there were also sprinkles of hardship, sadness, drama, angst, deceit, travesty, and complications. Oh and did I mention the hotness? Yeah my brain kind of short circuited. There was some major hotness! ;-)

I really liked the author's attention to detail when describing the places they were staying, etc.... I could easily envision them and as I have almost no imagination, this was amazing!

I recommend this to those of you who like some complications along with their romance, evil exes, sweet talking billionaires, or just an amazingly awesome story!

I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion. I want more, preferably now!
I really liked it and I am eager to read the next book as soon as possible.

  1. sound good and i must say that the blurb caught me more than i imagined
    the only thing bothering me a little is the fact it's not a stand alone... so is tehre a real definitive HEA already or we must wait until the last book in teh series

    1. They are together at the end of the book but the story will go on and by the last book I'm hoping that they will be married!

      It wasn't a cliff hanger, there is just more to tell.

  2. HA as usual your review sold me. ;) I will definitely check out this series now.
