Blog Tour + Book Review : Forever Right Now by Emma Scott

October 24, 2017

Forever Right Now Blurb:

***STANDALONE new adult romance from the author of The Butterfly Project and the Full Tilt Duet***
Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl...

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.

When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.


God! How can one book mean so much? 

Gah! This, right here folks was the ultimate reason why I read Emma Scott books. I admit, this is the only second book from her's that I read, but I declare Emma Scott as one of my unicorn authors. Damn! She's one great writer and storyteller. Emma Scott's words in Forever Right Now were more than words. Her lines were more than lines. It was pure heart and soul. The slow burn love story of the characters in itself were overflowing with emotions. Just like a tornado, I was swept away.

Darlene and Sawyer's journey, gripped my heart so tight. It was a journey packed full of punches I was afraid for a while I can't keep up. Lordy! These characters stole my heart and owned it. Each one was masterfully crafted and their portrayal was easy to connect with. Each with issues and baggage yet with every brilliant delivery of it made me want to hug Emma Scott so tight because it felt so real and not forced. I was head over heels in love with them and their love story. 

Who wouldn't? Sawyer with his grumpiness and a big heart had me the moment I met him.  Despite his cold exterior, he's a single dad who will do everything in his power to provide and be the man worthy of his daughter. The way that he is towards her made me a puddle of goo. He made my knees weak and my ovary at risk. His daughter Olivia, even owned me. The precious one had a special place in my heart. And now Darlene, she's another story because in as much as I wanna say I love Sawyer and Livvie, this book is all Darlene. I love this woman hard. I love just the thought of her because of her genuine character. She's a ball of energy and a sunshine to everyone despite all the baggage she carried. She was fierce beyond words flaws and all that's why I rooted for her until the very end. 

Honestly, I really have nothing to say about this book except that I love it. The blurb will give you a strong foundation of the story and as much as I wanna say I want to give glimpse of their journey here and there, I don't want to give so much away in fears of spoiling you. Read this book and be the judge of it. It was not your ordinary love story. It may not be the unique of all unique stories but know that Forever Right Now is one stellar journey of two souls point five that will blow you away. In my case,FRN totally blew me away. was drawn to this story because Emma's heart and soul seeped through the pages of this book. Through her brilliant writings, I was drawn to a love story so perfectly imperfect yet EPIC. 

To end, I highly recommend FRN. This book easily goes to my top list of favorite book this year.  I laughed and swooned. I was hurt and in so much pain. But I fell in love, hard. It was beautiful and moving. I'm sure I was more than touched. I was so engrossed reading, next thing I know I was crying. Gah!The feels were punch in the gut. It hit me so hard. The pain was painfully beautiful and the love that was overflowing was epic. It was a powerful story of forgiveness, acceptance hope and love, brilliantly executed.

Forever Right Now Excerpt:

 "Who are you?" he demanded rudely, shifting the diaper bag higher on his shoulder while hoisting his little girl in his other arm. He was six feet of hotness in a rumpled suit, glaring at me with suspicion in his dark eyes. 

"I...I'm your new neighbor?" It sounded more like a question; as if I needed this guy's permission to live. I straightened to my full height. "I just moved in upstairs. I'm a dancer. Well, I was. Had to take some time off but I'm going to get back into it soon...ish." I put on my friendliest smile. "I'm a massage therapist now. Just got my license and..."

My words died under Sawyer's withering stare. 

"A dancer. Fantastic," he said bitterly. "Just what I always wanted. Someone leaping and thumping above me, waking my kid up and disturbing my studies at all hours of the night."

I planted my hands on my hips. "I can't dance in a dinky apartment, and besides..."

Words failed me again as the sharp planes and hard angles of Sawyer's face melted when his daughter--I guessed her to be about a year old--suddenly clapped her small hand over his chin. Sawyer's hard gaze softened, and his broad mouth turned up in a smile--a beautiful smile I was sure only his little girl ever got to see, and so full of love that for a moment I could hardly breathe.
