A huge thank you to all who have taken the time to read and review! I loved writing Elliot's story. And Paige, I love her, she was actually the part of another book idea, but I hadn't found her hero yet. When readers started calling for a sequel to A Beautiful Struggle, it dawned on me, her hero was Elliot.

*sighs*

It seems the roles have reversed in this book. You know, as much as I hate to harken back to the first book, where I invested almost the entire length of the book in Elliot and Katrina only to be shafted while another guy slipped in and became who she ended up with, I have no choice but to preach about feeling shafted yet again.

In book one, David was as dull as a butter knife...there was nothing about him that was truly intriguing and, furthermore, the lack of real focus on him

I struggled to finish this one, the first half was spent with Elliot and Paige out of their clothes, the repetition of same sex scenes in different parts of wherever they maybe and coming from each pov, became so monotonous and boring.( I survived it by doing a lot of skimming ).The dialogue didn't fare any better either, it's mostly between their

Jeez, can't wait to finish this book. It's so f.... boring and don't now why but Page is going on my nerves, especially on BBQ.
First book is ok and I loved Elliot. on my opinion there was no need for a sequel.

How did I get this book early? I was one of the lucky people selected to be an early reviewer for this book after also reviewing A Beautiful Struggle.

And I have to say that I LOVED IT, I was a bit worried going into it because I was such a big fan of Elliot and Katrina together but this new relationship - OMG I loved them together and don't even care about Katrina anymore. The writing style is different as Ms Anderson has taken on a dual point of view between Elliot and Paige, I loved being in

A truly beautiful book worthy of 5 starts. This is my favourite of the two book it completely blew me away. I got a little emotional (story a little close to home). I am so happy when us fucked up people get a happen ending. Everything was so developed. Paige wow what a women for all that she went through I admire her strength and I was able to relate to her character, she had a start- fragile, close off damaged then we saw her letting her guards down but it was still a struggle and by the end ...more

I admit... I was Team David in the first book, but I still really liked Elliot. I fell in love with him while reading this book. He's learned that his TSTL (too stupid to live) moment cost him what he thinks is true love. To see him struggle with Paige and fighting for her, it broke my heart. I wanted him to find happiness so badly and it almost seemed like he lose again. Poor Paige. Just from her thoughts, I knew something horrific happened to her,

WOW! A Beautiful Forever by Lilliana Anderson packed a lot of punch! This was one of ‘those’ sequels that in some ways, blitzed the first book; remaining faithfully true to the characters, was fabulous in its twisty plot, and had even more incredibly sexy sex!

If you fell in love with gorgeous hunk of sin, Elliot Roberts in A Beautiful Struggle, you will be head over heels with this generous, thoughtful and sexy man in this book. In an attempt to find meaning and purpose, extracting himself

I received this book as an ARC for an honest review.

This book is about Elliot and his new love interest Paige. Because I was team Elliott in the book Beautiful Struggle, I couldnt wait to read more about him. You can truly see his growth from Beautiful Struggle to now. He is definitely more of a fighter in this book and will not back down to challenges. I LOVE me so Elliott!!!!! I wish he could have down more of this in the first book but then we wouldnt have this one.

Paige was a handful!!!!

This was a beautiful ending for Elliot. We met Elliot in A Beautiful struggle where he fell in love with Katrina but the relationship...well, I'll just say it didn't work out, in case anyone reading this review hasn't read that story yet.
In A Beautiful Forever Elliot goes to the UK to find himself and meets Paige on the plane ride there. Paige has a heartbreaking back story, and while Elliot is all in from the get go, his big struggle in this one is convincing her to give into her feelings.

I loved this book for so many reasons. It was so much better than the first book. Oh, and I do love me some Elliott. I slowly fell head over heals for him. His love story with Paige was so sweet. This story has everything you love in a romance and more.

The best part of this story is the author. She wrote a compelling and complete story. No stupid epilogue at the end. I just love that. She answered all the questions that you had and she didn't leave anything hanging out there for you to wonder.

At the end of the first book it felt wrong. What was going to happen to Elliot? He was torn, shattered and couldn't seem to find himself. I was ecstatic when I knew there was another book. A Beautiful Forever was heart wrenching. There were so many emotions going through me that it almost felt real; like I was Paige. It conveyed the true meaning of love and what it means to fight for something that you know you can't live without. This book brought me to tears; tears of sadness and tears of ...more

I came across this book from a friend and I decided to read A "Beautiful Struggle" first after a review recommendation to read book one for background knowledge. I ABSOLUTELY love Elliott and the continuation of his story. I had mixed emotions with how the first book ended, but was delighted to see how his story continues. What a powerful relationship of friendship, love and hope for both Elliott & Paige. I could easily see a third book on the continuation of Katrina & David's story. ...more

I loved this book. I am so into happy ever afters and lots of romance and angst and this book had it all. Kudos to Ms Anderson on a wonderful series. I will be watching for anything new she writes. I read this non stop. I liked Elliott's character much better in this book - he and Paige were a wonderful couple.

Once upon a time, I requested to review a book on Goodreads entitled, A Beautiful Struggle. It was going great up until the story took a whole different path and I was left feeling confused. I liked it but it broke my heart too.

No. Lilliana broke my heart. Not just mine! There were plenty of others who were left devastated!

Okay that was a bit dramatic. Anyway.............. obviously, we were rooting for Elliot. Don't get me wrong, I liked the HEA in the

I am SO enamored with this story!!!



The more I read A Beautiful Forever, the more I realized how much I loved it more than A Beautiful Struggle, so book 2 is def my favorite.

A Beautiful Forever was able to catch many things. It was able to show how a heartbroken and confused man was able to find himself again. It showed how a haunted and broken girl redeemed herself. It showed how fighting for what you want always pays off at the end. It showed that struggling with your own emotions is just a

When I read A Beautiful Struggle, I didn't know which side I was on. Team David or Team Elliot? And after a lot of thinking, guess what... Team Elliot it is! That's why when I found out that there's going to be a novel based on Elliot's POV, I was super excited to read it, and curious as well. ;-)

Paige... the new character in Elliot's life.
I love the way Elliot described Paige:

"She’s a stunner, with masses of curly dark-brown hair, olive skin, a full pouty mouth and amazing eyes – they kind of

i loved this book. it didn't annoy me like the first book in this series -although i did still like the first book- and i really like Elliot now.

thought Elliot and Paige were a really cute couple. the pregnancy plot was quite obvious. im surprised no one noticed that she was pregnant until 5 months later when she went to the hospital to check she was fine.

grace was the cutest baby ever. i feel in love with her so fast. i don't really know what to think about Paige's mum. she wasn't in the book

Okay, there was nothing about this book that I liked. So that I do not say something mean, I will try to keep my review short. I go through so many books though, I need reviews to remind me of what I felt about the book, so here goes nothing...

This book felt like exactly what it was...an afterthought. Elliot was dull. Paige was over dramatic. Their story dragged and dragged. I live a story that goes beyond the typical will you marry me segment but this one I just kept asking "when is it going to

I was very excited to start this book and continue reading Elliot's story. I really loved him in A Beautiful Struggle. A Beautiful Forever begins with the last chapter from ABS. Elliot has left his job as a solicitor and his Dad's money and influence to be a personal trainer. He's moving to London for 3 months to find himself, and he meets Paige on the plane ride there, who is broken and looking

I am reviewing an early reader copy that the author gave me in exchange for an honest review after I contacted her previously about reading A Beautiful Struggle.

This is the sequel to that and I have to say I liked it even better than the first. For me A Beautiful Struggle was worth 5 stars, so if I could, I would give A Beautiful Forever 6 stars. I really did love it that much!

I think that if you wanted to read this book on its own you could do so because besides the prologue, there isn't a lot

He sees a pretty girl, Paige on the plane. Paige is tough, self-assured and independent. Elliot is very courteous and mannerly. Paige tells Elliot that she isn't interested in getting involved. Paige is very emotionally closed off. She doesn't want to share herself with anyone and she hates talking about herself. Paige is afraid of ...more

I had such high hopes for this book after I read the prologue. this book was fine...didn't knock my socks off my any means. I don't know if it's because I went right into this one after reading the first book or what. I liked Elliott and Paige in this book. maybe if we ha found out Paige' s background earlier it would have been better. just thought some parts drug along. I would save the last 1/4 of the book were good that I had a hard time putting it down.

I liked this book much better than A Beautiful Struggle. I did not like Katrina to begin with. That story was all about drinking and going to the bar scene. Katrina was too full on herself and viewed Elliot like a prize catch to gloat over the other women at the law firm.

So, I'm very happy that Katrina settled for David and allowed Elliot to find someone he could truly care for. Paige is a damaged woman who is not looking for forever love. She is the perfect backdrop for Elliot to show how

RATING: B

COVER DESIGN: I love the picture; very romantic and passionate. The only downside to it is that the author’s name is hard to see. A lot of people would say that the title is what matters, but I personally like to see the name of the brilliant person who wrote the masterpiece in my hands.

WHAT I LIKED: If there is one thing that popped out at me when I first started reading this book, it’s that the author was able to effortlessly convey that feeling you get when you see an old flame… I

This book is Elliot's story after he messed things up with Katrina.

Elliot is so lost in life and can not get over the fact he messed everything up and did not stand up to his father for Katrina. So he goes to London for 3 months to try and find himself again. And that is exactly what he does, he meets the most amazing girl ever Paige. He has tried everything to get her to talk but she does not seem interested at all. When they finally
