Blog Tour: Forever My Girl

“I know she hates me.

I hate me.

I ruined her life. That is what her voice message said. The one I've saved for the past ten years. The one I've transferred from phone to phone just so I could hear her voice when I’m at my lowest. I can recite every hateful word she said to me when I was too busy to answer and never found the time to call her back.

Never found one second to call and explain to her what I had done to us. She was my best friend and I let her slip through my fingers just to save myself from the heartache of hearing she didn't want me anymore.

I had dreams too.

And my dreams included her, but she would never have gone for it. I’m not living her American Dream. I'm living my own. My decision destroyed everything.”


Do you believe in second chances? Can love be redeemed after it's been thrown away so callously? Can love heal old wounds that have been inflicted by the one that broke your heart? Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin is a story about second chances and redemption. It’s a story about how love can stand the test of time. It's sad, sweet and heartwarming. Leaving you with a feeling of hope that no matter what will happen, LOVE can conquer all. (YES, I am forever an optimist; the idea of love makes me all gushy. ;))

“When you love someone, you just know." 

Liam is living the Hollywood lifestyle. He's a huge rock star who has everything he could ever want and need at his fingertips. It turns out that Liam's life is anything but a fairy-tale, he's extremely lonely and suffering from a bad decision he made ten years earlier. Liam destroyed the most important relationship that he’s had with the only girl he's ever loved. He torments himself daily with thoughts of whether the choice to live his dreams was worth the sacrifice of leaving his family, friends and one true love behind. When confronted with the sudden death of his best friend Mason, he decides to go home and pay his respects. The need to see Josie his former love one more time is inescapable. He wants to convince himself that he made the best decision by leaving her behind.

“I thought for sure we'd spend forever together. I thought our love was one of a kind. I would almost be okay if he had met someone else and fallen in love, but he didn't. He just left. He said he was suffocating.” ~~ Josie 

Josie is trying to move on from the past. They say time heals old wounds but Josie has never been able to fully recover from the shattered heart that Liam left her with. Working as a florist in a flower shop that she also owns, Josie is raising her son Noah with Nick her boyfriend of six years. Sad and dealing with the grief from the death of Mason her long time friend and best friends’ husband, Josie is trying to keep it all together, that is until Liam shows up. Liam’s return brings old feelings to the surface that Josie thought she had buried a long time ago and a situation Liam didn't know anything about brings them back together in a whole new way.

Their first encounter with each other after ten years apart is emotional and moving. The chemistry is palpable and you want them to work through all the hurt and scars that the time apart has created. I loved their story and the way it was written. It gives you hope and leaves a smile on your face until the very end. 
I look into his eyes, his forehead rests upon mine. His mouth drops open when my fingers trail down his body, pushing him deeper.
"You're so perfect," he kisses me in between the words, showing me how much he loves me.
"I love you, Liam"
"You're forever my girl."
 

Liam and Josie are both incredibly lovable characters. I felt throughout the book they tugged on my heartstrings, making my heart melt. They weren't the only characters that caught my attention though. Katelyn, Josie's best friend, was amazing. Facing the death of anyone is tough but she lost her husband that she shared two children with. I loved the way her friends rallied around her and took care of her. 

Overall this is a great book if you are looking for something a bit more emotional. Heidi does an amazing job taking you through the trials of death, broken hearts, and the hope of a second chance at love. I adored it and would highly recommend picking up this great read.

I am intrigued to see how Josie confronts her past, and if she is truly willing to open the door to the future...without looking back.
