Review: Forever Loved by Deanna Roy

Forever Loved (The Forever Series, #2)
Forever Loved by Deanna Roy

SPOILER ALERT! Don't even read the summary of this one if you think you'll remember and you haven't read the first.

The much-anticipated sequel to the Top 10 bestselling new adult romance Forever Innocent.
“How do I tell the woman I love that I fathered a son with a prostitute?”
After four long years of separation, Gavin has finally reunited with his childhood love Corabelle. She’s forgiven him for leaving her during the funeral of their seven-day-old baby, and also for where he ended up — in Mexico to get a vasectomy.
But a message from Rosa, a prostitute he met the day of his surgery, brings his life to a crashing halt. She claims Gavin has fathered a son, now three years old and living with her cousin in Ensenada. He doesn’t know if he can trust Rosa, who never mentioned the boy before, or if his delicate reconciliation with Corabelle can withstand the shock if it is true.
Corabelle believes their future together is the right thing despite their past. But when she learns of this other child, the one thing she lost long ago and might never have again with Gavin, Corabelle’s faith that her life will ever follow her old dream is shattered. To make things right for Gavin and his son, she just might have to let go of the only person she always believed would be her forever love.
Forever Loved is the heart-wrenching conclusion to Gavin and Corabelle's passionate story.

    Wow, did this one take me by surprise. I was contacted by the publicist with a review copy since they'd seen my review where I loved Forever Innocent. I was excited to see where Corabelle and Gavin would end up since they have a powerful love, but also some very tough things in their past, and I was nervous to see what would come up from secrets, pain and uncertainty of their pasts. 
    I still love Corabelle's character. Sure, she deludes herself some, but don't we all. We want to be over the pains of our past and never really admit that we still struggle with some of those issues daily. But despite her battle against herself, she is still strong and smart. 
   Gavin too is emotional, but of course since he is a guy, he hides it most of the time. He is living with a lot of regrets, especially in regards to his behavior after Finn died. 
    Corabelle and Gavin still have that irresistable spark of chemistry between them, and their feelings are true even if they are pushed to the limits of testing when something unexpected comes up from their past. 
   The theme from the first book of getting second chances is definitely pushed to the limits in this one, and we get to see Corabelle's parents in this one, and her dad most def does not even want to give out that second chance, and even though they are annoying at times, I totally get that they just don't want their little girl to get her hopes up again. 
    I love also the friendship in this one. Jenny is still around and Corabelle gets closer to Jenny, who I really admire and like. I also just found out is going to have her own book and I can't wait to read it. 
   The ending, well the epilogue, wrapped everything up really well, and I like the choices made and I feel like they are really seeing the hope that everything can be okay for them despite all they went through. 

Bottom Line: Great sequel with lots of surprises, steam and emotion.

My question to you, my lovely readers:
Could you accept it if your significant other was parent to a child with someone besides yourself?

  1. This isn't what I'd usually consider picking up, but I love that the sequel was so successful. You make a very convincing case!

  2. I am interested in this one, I almost thought at first this was the first book in the series so I had to search for the first one.
    I love Corabelle's name, and her character sounds great :D looking forward to seeing more from this series and picking it up myself.

  3. Thanks for the spoiler alert. I think I might like this series. I'm glad to see you enjoyed!

  4. This sounds like such a tough situation! I can't even imagine going through something like this, but I like to think I'd be able to handle it if I truly loved the person. Wonderful review!

  5. I still cannot decide if this series is for me or not... I'm torn. It does sound very emotional though! Glad you enjoyed!

  6. Oh, I love second chance romances :) I think me being with my segnificant other under these kind of circumstances would depend on the situation, but mostly it wouldn't bother me, because we all have a past and one can't argue with what the heart wants. Though, definitely every situation is unique.

  7. Great review! I'm really excited about this one! I adored the first book, it was so intense and very emotional! And I do enjoy the intensity of both Corabelle and Gavin. I'm really curious as to what is going to happen in this one and I wanna read that epilogue!

  8. Glad you enjoyed this one Brandi. I don't think it's for me.

    I'd accept my partner's child from someone else, but it would take some getting used to if he fathered it while he was getting a vasectomy after abandoning me during the funeral of our seven day old baby. It would take a lot!

  9. I liked the female friendship in book one and it's great knowing Jenny is still around. Sounds like Corabelle has some tough choices to make. Thanks for sharing.

  10. Sure I could accept that, but with a

  11. oh that's nice to know about the couple, and I'm curious about the end now. It sounds like a new great book!
