This book started off slow... and I really wasn't into it at first, but I am not one to just quit on a book. I am so glad I didn't, as well.
The further in I got into this book the more I loved it. In the end I couldn't put it down. I found myself reading at every spare minute I had. On the bus, waiting for the kettle to boil, even whilst doing other things (like eating my brekfast and trying not to spill it all over myself XD).

I loved it.

The book is centered around music, each chapter is the lin

Jamie S. Rich has made a fine career of examining the ins and outs of what makes the late 20's/early 30's struggle for love so difficult. His regular graphic novel work with 12 Reasons Why I Love Her and Love the Way You Love (see independent reviews on each) continue the standard that was originally set with this winning novel. Great dialog, realistic voice and setting, and a very creatively structured novel.

The second book in JSR's romance trillogy, It has a diffrent flow than Cut my hair which reminds me more of Hornsby's A long way down. Lance's follies in love are parralled to my own experinces in life, so maybe I'm biased.

Everlasting is a story of a dude who falls in love easily. I want to read more from Rich as soon as he stops writing about the fashion scene in Portland,OR.

“He says he knows someone isn't from the same race as he when that person looks at his library and asks, 'Have you read all of these?' A true book lover knows that, no, he hasn't read them all. It's about the process, it's about when the right reference comes up, you have the right book to go to; it's about never being without something to occupy your eyes and mind.” 5 likes
“...yesterday I saw Quentin not as the bright face everyone puts on for the purpose of dating but as she was when things broke down, and I still wanted to be there. Maybe more than ever, if only to enjoy the happiness that inevitably follows tragedy, when everything works out.” 1 likes
