Swooning over “Forever My Girl” by Heidi McLaughin



Liam’s life is all spelled out for him.  He goes to college on a football scholarship.  He marries his high school sweetheart and they live happily in Beaumont.  Unfortunately, he has a personal dream that he must follow but he’s not sure that pursuing his dream will be understood and accepted by the love of his life, Josie.  So…he leaves her.  

Ten years later, he comes back to say goodbye to his best friend Mason who died in a car accident.  All his emotions are in turmoil.  He convinced himself 10 years ago that he had made the right decision for everyone but now he is not so sure after discovering all that he left behind in Beaumont which turns out to be far more than what he thought he left.

This is a story about a teenage love that was crippled by chance and fear. All it takes though is one look and JoJo is questioning her commitment to her fiance and the life she has lived for ten years. Will she stick with her life as it was after Liam left town or will she take a chance and admit her love for Liam has never diminished.

This was a great story; a solid 4 stars.  It moved at a good speed to keep me interested and had enough of a love triangle to make it intense enough to turn the next page.  Liam is kind of a calm rockstar though.  I would have liked to see a bit more hard core rocker and bad boy come out.  It was a sweet love story and I found it to be refreshing.

I also liked the way that the reader introduced the main characters of her next book and started the story line at the end of this book.  I off to read it now, can’t wait to share my thoughts with you on that one too.
