Don’t wanna be forever blue
‘Cause I deserve some love that’s true
Finding it the hard way
And wishing for it everyday
I guess I was wrong to want you, yeah
‘Cause I’m afraid, I’m afraid, I’m afraid
To be forever blue

3.5 STARS!
My LSS the whole time I'm reading this book...And the book leaves me forever blue too.

I wasn’t looking at my best friend anymore. This boy made my heart skip a beat, this boy gave me butterflies in my stomach. Those gentle bluish-green eyes took my breath away. I could have rac

I am such a sucker for stories about falling in love with the boy next door and living happily ever after. Forever Blue by Jennifer Edlund is ALMOST just that… Alexa is 12 years-old and is dreading another boring summer sitting at home with no friends. The first day of summer brings change when Carter Storm moves in across the street from Alexa. The two become best friends almost instantly and have a very cute and innocent child “love affair” you
I had zero expatiations when I got this book. It was free on Amazon, so I downloaded it. If it’s free it’s for me! I decided to go hide in my room and mentally prepare myself for Thanksgiving with the in-laws when I started reading it. I was shocked at how much I liked it from the beginning!

I thought this story was simple. Girl and Boy meet when they are kids, become best friends, loose each other, then reunite and live HEA! SO not the case! The story starts in a therapy session with Alexa, our
Ugh where do I even begin? What I liked was the easy writing style, it pulled me in right away.I really liked the childhood flashbacks. They were the best part of the book. But unfortunately I really really disliked pretty much all of the characters. I think Ruth ( Alexa's best friend) was the only good one. Alexa geez she was a hot mess.I loved her when she was a kid and even a rebellious teen. But as a twenty something year old she was just annoying, selfish and a complete liar and I just coul ...more
Great writing style. The author had you under the character's spell from the very first page. It is a cliff hanger at the end so plan on purchasing the sequel before you finish the first. It was a page turner and the story kept me excited and interested from start to finish. You will really fall in love with the characters and leave you wanting more...highly recommend.
I received a copy of "Forever Blue" by Jennifer Edlund through the Goodreads Giveaway Contest.This is the first book in a two book series.

What would you do if your first love sweetheart came back into your life after many years had passed? I found myself remembering my own. I still remember his name...but I never saw him again. I still to this day wonder what happened to him.This well written book will appeal to all ages...for those that have ever loved.What a precious memory that Jennifer allow
Forever Blue is a superb debut Romance/Contemporary novel. In the beginning, your attention is very quickly grabbed and draws you into the story without any hesitation, and once you begin reading, you’ll have trouble putting this book down until you have reached the very last page.

This is another favorite being added to my list. Throughout the book, Alexa is a character that many can relate to, and even the other character’s as well, but there was more insight into her world, and quite often I f
This book crammed so many issues in one book, love lost, consequences, betrayal, moving on and facing difficulties on your own.
Reuniting with that first love, Alexa is drawn to the passion of that true love. She then moves along on a journey that starts with a night of passion and creates ties that bind her forever with Carter Storm her long lost boy next door, who just happens to be a successful rock star. Only problem, she happens to be married to Scott Logan, a true heart who loves Alexa wit

This one? Had me on edge... I feel bad reading it LOL coz I felt like I was the one cheating. But honestly? It's a surprise, it may have it's cliche's but in a different twist and turn. Unravelling and I can't wait to read the second book.

Thank you Ms. Edlund!
Another great drama-filled romance that keeps you captivated until the end....
I love the cover and sounds great cant wait to read it...

Chelsea Holder
It was great! Not what I expected!!!

The story is all about Alexa's lack of friend especially after her best friend told her that she doesn't want to hang out with her anymore. Only to find a new friendship in her new neighbor Carter Storm. The two became the best of friends, and soon romance blossom between the two. The only problem is that Carter's mother Mary, will do anything in her power pull the two away from each other. And after fifteen years of non communication there he is right in fron
Forever Blue had me turning the pages nonstop. The lives of Alexa and Carter are two characters people will be able to connect with. All the twists and turns that happens in their lives will just suck any reader into wanting to read more. In Forever Blue, you get to read all the struggles that happen in Alexa's life to get her to the place that she is today: a strong women who has over come tough obstacles in her life to make her who she is. You will also get to read about Alexa's best friend Ca ...more
I loved the story of Forever Blue, but I was surprised and disappointed that it cut off almost mid sentence and that to find out what happened next with Alexa required reading Book 2. Luckily I was able to download the sequel quickly so I could continue reading about her saga.

The book was written so that you were alternating between present and the past (as she told her story to a therapist) but it worked.

I would recommend this book but I'd strongly suggest having book 2 ready to go as soon as

I totally loved this book. A childhood sweetheart coming back into your life. Every girls dream. Definitely my dream! And he has also made a name for himself and is a pop star. Even better!

Great story line that had me wanting more. A book that I will definitely recommend to friends and family.

Can't wait to read what happens next
I was lucky enough to be a first reader winner. This is a nicely told coming of age story. How the past can impact our future. We follow Alexa and Carter on this heart wrenching journey, however the conclusion to this story will continue in Jennifer Edlunds next book. Can't wait to find out how it will end.

Omigosh, this book sounds so amazing. . . I so want to read it. Love is the most beautiful thing in the world; mix it with my favorite color blue and how much more inticing can it get?

Really great read. Carter's mom was a major biatch devil woman! My heart broke for Alexa when tragedy struck her life.

In high school, I couldn't get enough of this kind of boy-next-door novel. Now, I read these novels from time to time and still get the same enjoyment from them. They're captivating, sweet, suspenseful, and engaging. This book was no exception. The friendship between the main character, Alexa, and her new neighbour and only friend, Carter, was adorable to read. At times, their friendship seemed too good to be real. When their relationship suddenly ended, I really felt for Alexa. And when neither ...more
I LOVED this book! So much so that I sat and read it all in one sitting. This is a rarity for me because I am incredibly impatient and picky - I will not feel badly to stop reading a book I can't get into or put one down for a while that is losing my attention. I must have been in just the right mood for this very book because I was GLUED to it! Actually...I fortunately already had the 2nd book downloaded as well because I went straight from this book to it's continuation, "Forever Blue: New Tea ...more
“Good or bad, I suppose we can all think of at least one person who made a significant impact on our lives. And Aiden forever left a mark on mine."

I found the beginning of this book really good although it starts off with Alexa going to see a therapist. I admit this put me off a little because it wasn't what I was expecting first however after that we get into the story.

The book begins in the past where Alexa meets Carter. This was really cute; I loved their interaction as kids and I really beg
Ok where to start...this book went back-n-forth from present to past, which I didn't really like that much since the flash backs didnt seem to be that important, most of it could of been thrown into a couple chapters or removed. And what happened to the therapist?? After the first sit down she disappears when the story begins. Carter or Scotty? I'm team Scotty. Carter irritates me, and I think we all know he's going to break Alexa's heart, and rip apart her marriage if she chooses him. I wish th ...more

First, Thank you to Jennifer Edlund for the copy I won on Goodreads! I absolutely loved this book, although at times I had a hard time with the excessive tragedy this dear character Alexa had to go through on a "too" regular basis. I did manage to relate to her character at times though, so I honestly loved it. I really am torn when deciding who I am choosing to be her perfect "man", when it comes to this series. Basically, I loved the childhood portion of the book, when Alexa's character was ar ...more
