Review: Forever and Never by Ella Fields

July 1, 2019

Lars Bradby was supposed to be my forever.
That was before we found out he would become a father at the tender age of eighteen.
For years, he’d watched me.
For months, he’d wanted me.
For weeks, he’d chased me.
Relentless and infuriating, he turned my stubborn heart into something pliable and weak.
Sly and honest, he worked his way into my life as though he’d always planned to be the focal point of it.
In love and naive, even when our future seemed bleak, I believed in us.
Heartbroken and desperate, I tore my bleeding heart from my chest, wanting only the best for him.
In doing so, our forever wasn’t just interrupted. It was chased away with one irreversible decision after another.
And now, we could no longer see it beneath the heaping piles of debris we’d left in our wake.

Lars and Daphne intrigued the hell out of me in Kiss and Break Up, and as much as I enjoyed the first installment in the Magnolia Cove series, I just knew that I would enjoy this one more. Well, guess what? I was so fucking right! This book is hands down one of my favorite Ella Fields novels ever!  She blew my expectations out of the water with this emotional, angst filled story! In fact, Forever and Never is easily one of the best books I've read all year!

Ella is one of those authors whose writing is filled with so much emotion that you experience her books rather than merely read them, and this story is a prime example of that. I was swooning, fuming, smiling, tearing up, and clutching my heart throughout the entire book. Lars and Daphne's romance put me through the ringer. They stole my heart, broke it, and put it back together again, and I wouldn't want it any other way. 

Forever and Never is a spectacular new adult romance you don't want to miss! Lars and Daphne's journey to their happily ever after is atypical, complicated, heartbreaking, frustrating, and beautiful. The characters themselves are strong, resilient, endearing, and brave, and the pacing of the story is perfect. 

If that's not enough to sway you to give this one a try, hopefully this will put you over the top. I've been going through something very difficult recently, and I haven't been able to get into reading ANYTHING without my mind wandering. I haven't even been able to watch TV without my brain going right back to the bad shit. This book is the only thing that was able to give me a little relief, a tiny break from reality, and for that, I'll be forever grateful to this author. 

I recommend Forever Never to all fans of angsty new adult romance! 

*This book can be read as a standalone. However, it takes place in the same time period as book 1 for a good portion of the story, and many of the events that occur during it are more vaguely referred to here. If you're like me and need all the details, you'll want to dive into book 1 first.*
