I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never for

4 - 4.5 stars.

Forever My Girl is a beautiful YA rockstar romance about the heartbreak of mistakes, the power of forgiveness, and the hope of a second chance at love.

I’ll be perfectly honest, when I first read the blurb for this book, I squeed right out loud. I mean, a second-chance rockstar romance? What’s not to love?

Here’s the blurb, I’ll let you fall in love with it all on your own:

“I know she hates 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.

Dropped at: 51%

Reason: None of the characters act their age (the adults act like immature teeangers and the kids like wise grandparents), the dialogue is contrived, Josie's mood swings are beyond annoying, and Liam is a drama queen. Also, don't get me started on the editing mistakes.

I couldn't care less where this is headed.

Forever My Girl is a beautiful, captivating second chance love story. This story broke my heart, made me laugh, made me cry, made me smile, and, when it was over, sigh with happiness. This is a highly impressive debut novel by Heidi McLaughlin.

When Liam left ten years ago to pursue his dreams to become a musician, he left everyone behind, including the love of his life, without an explanation. Liam and Josie were high school sweethearts. They had their whole lives planned out together. But, of c

Yay! :) I feel all warm and gooey inside. I love books that do that to me. This was such a feel good contemporary romance.

It was a little predictable and standard, but I think that's ok, because it was gorgeous! I do have one issue, and that is Liam's reason for leaving his home town of Beaumont and the love of his life, Josie Preston... I can see where the author was trying to go with that but it was the only weak point in the story for me.

In Forever My Girl we are introduced to Liam Page. Liam left town and walked out on the girl he loved ten years previous to pursue a music career and never didn’t look back. Or did he?

Liam appears to have it all. Fame, fortune, women………pretty much any woman he wants , except the one he still thinks about every day – the woman who truly stole his heart ten years ago.

Liam lives quite the nomadic lifestyle, touring and living out

I'm lucky - I had the privilege and honour of being able to read this story as it was being developed and written and I can tell you (as cliched as this may sound) you will NOT be disappointed. You want a hot Rockstar? You've got it. You want a determined, likeable female lead? You've got it. You want some angst, some warmth and A LOT of sexual tension? Yeah, you got that too. Add to the mix a cute kid and the likeable 'other guy' and you have the recipe for a perfect read.

"Only you, Jojo."


Liam used to have a girl, a best friend, and a promising football career until the day his grandma made him believe he couldn’t make music and keep those who were important to him at the same time (this is basically how I read it).

Tragedy strikes Liam’s best friend and he returns home to Beaumont after 10 years to pay his respect for his former best friend, Mason and his family.

This story is told in alternating povs of Josie and Liam. Josie is engaged to Nick and rais

I really adored this story. Liam makes a decision many years prior to the book's start to pursue a different path in his life. He's tried to forget the past. And her. But it comes out in his music. How he has never stopped loving her.

He's living the rock star lifestyle. Different girls, different cites, but none of them will ever be her. The her he thought he'd never see again.

But then something happens that makes him go home again.

And at home he'll be forced to see her and deal with the past

Forever My Girl is a sweet, loving, all-around adorable read. If you, like me, have a thing for musicians, and reconnections, then this read is for you.

Liam and Josie were high school sweethearts, but one day in college Liam decides to leave Josie to pursue a music career. Ten years later Liam comes back into town and Josie just doesn’t know how to process any of it. Both want closure, but there are plenty of obstacles in their way from finding peace.
This one was okay, but nothing great. I love stories of lost love, especially when they include a rock star, but this one was okay, not awful, but just okay.

I was anticipating this one and it is my third book this month that I bought the day of release and was disappointed. I was expecting more. I am big on closers, cliffhangers and epilogues. This one just kind of ended. Like I was suppose to go "YEAH" and imagine the rest. Sorry, I don't do that.

I loved this book!! It was so good!! Liam was amazing and hot!! I loved all the scenes with little Peyton and Noah. They made my heart melt into millions of pieces. I want my future kids to be as cute as they are. I couldn’t stand Nick!! I just felt like he wanted what Liam had and that’s why he ended up with Josie. Overall, I loved this book!! It was so sweet!! I can’t wait to read the next book.

I never thought I'd see the boy who stole my heart and failed to give it back.... I'm not sure I want it back.

So many feels man! So many fucking feels. I didn't really think I would like this book, because I honestly hated Liam right on the first page. But when I finished... Oh god! I was tearing up... I'm so happy Josie and Liam had their happily ever after. I'm such a sucker for happy endings!!

Some people find their dream early on in life, some never do, and some sacrifice everything to capture it. Liam found his dream in the first semester of college, a dream that cost him everything he cared for, including the woman he desperately loved.

Ok, I'm seriously thinking that there is something wrong with me, starting to have major crushes (and dare I say cravings) for Rock Star heroes.
It can't be healthy!

I liked this book, it was a perfect pick me up and a good start to the new year!
It was a bit rough around the edges in some places but I don't care! It made me feel happy once I finished it.
I laughed, I cringed, I got angry, I got scared ( admittedly had to stop reading at one point and considered hiding my iPad) I jumped with joy...
Story of second chances, heart breaking, heart melting, a complete package.

Even if this book didn’t follow every other books concept I would still have given this only 2 stars. I wasn’t impressed at all about a boy who left all the plans he made with the love of his life to pursue something that never entered his vocabulary when he and she were together. If Liam would have tried harder to explain to Josie what he wanted and needed she would have understood and stuck by him and help him follow his dreams. But instead he took the cowards way out. Not attractive at all if ...more

How can i describe how i felt reading this book. Hmmm...

Perfect. This picture describes exactly how I felt while reading Forever My Girl.

It's the kind of book that you just want to sit outside and completely relax while devouring each page. It's such a relaxing, nice, read. And a really quick read!

It's not a book that is going to leave you crying or make your emotions go hay wire... But it's pleasant. There will be the moments that make you cringe... But mostly it's a fee
