Blog Tour: Forever (Friends #3) by Monica Murphy

Synopsis for Forever (from Goodreads):

She’s all I could ever want…

I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away.

So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems.

But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel…

Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine…

My Expectations:

I went through a major book hangover after I finished More Than Friends in December. I couldn’t even handle the wait for Forever and eagerly awaited its release. Easily one of my most anticipated sequels this year!

I was excited to see how Jordan and Amanda’s story would wrap up and see what everyone else in the story was up to.

My Review:

These two are just the cutest; Tuttle especially. His crush/love just warms my heart. It’s been a long time since I’ve fallen in love with a male hero in a story. Swoon!

It was also just as addicting as More Than Friends. I honestly couldn’t put it down because I needed to know what happened next!

I was really torn on what rating to give this book. While I loved this story and the characters, I was a little let down in the plot.

The whole reason we get this book is because these two have some unresolved issues that they need to work out. I went into this book excited to learn more about Tuttle’s character and see how he would open up to let Amanda in. Unfortunately, this aspect fell flat for me here in this book. We don’t get to uncover more about Tuttle than we already know and this story just goes through the motions of everyday life. Which is fine because I love anything with these two together but I just wanted that touch of depth to take that story to the next level. These two develop as characters in other ways but I wanted to see Tuttle grow that little bit more.

Regardless, I was more than satisfied with the story and everything that happens.

My Rating: 4/5

Fans will be more than satisfied with this installment! It has all the drama and teenage angst a fan could want!
