Unable to accept a marriage proposal, Misty is given the summer to go wild before she settles down. She decides to go back to the boy who stole her heart, Kellin and demand answers.

I love this series but I struggled with the first half of the book. It did get a bit better but then that had to happen at 78% *facepalm* I didn't like the direction of the story.

Maybe if I read this book when I was in my NA mood last week I might have enjoyed it more. Not that it was bad, I know they are y

The most gorgeous writing and the deepest love I have ever read. THIS is why we authors write. To create something this beautiful.
Once I finished it, I literally bawled which, believe it or not, says more about the story, the characters, the depth, the angst, the love, than it does about me right now. I love Cheryl's series Dirty so much, but a girl can love different styles. Where Dirty was gritty and raw, unapologetic in its ugly, passionate reality, in Always Forever, Cheryl is back to her N

Cheryl McIntyre is one of those versatile authors that has the ability to make the reader cry big fat ugly tears, experience unimaginable heartbreak, pace around in frustration - and most importantly, she has the ability to make you fall in love. And that’s exactly what I did with this book, I fell head over heels in love minutes into the story. Always Forever focuses on the lives of Misty and Kellin. They first meet each other as children and then spend the next several years weaving in and

Misty is twenty one, in school and is now breathing easy because she has just finished her finals and is looking forward to a break from college over the summer. Her boyfriend Luke is a great guy. He's almost 30, is a financial trader and is financially secure. He surprises her one night with a marriage proposal and one seriously large piece of finger bling. But Misty can't bring herself to say " Yes." When she tells him she has to think about it, he asks her if it's because she feels she still ...more
I seriously do not know how this woman does it. Always Forever was probably my new favorite book of Cheryl's. Every book is more amazing and beautiful than the last. It's so hard to pick a favorite. But I 100% without a doubt know I want to be part of a Kellin and Roh sandwich ;-)
I loved getting to see some of our favorite characters from past books and meeting new ones. I loved Kellin. The name alone makes me love him and he pretty much put my other fictional book boyfriend Kellan Kyle to sham

I have loved/stalked Cheryl McIntyre since I first read Sometimes Never, and with every book she has released, I've loved her more. Her writing style and knack for story telling immediately hooks me, and keeps me entertained from the first page to the very last, and the family of characters that she has created in this series is one that feels like a part of me, and one I never want to have to let go of.

I have been waiting so long for Misty and Kellin's story, and as soon as I started reading I

OMG-----I LOVEDDDDDD this book. I was just going through some that I read, I keep a log of them all so I can watch and hope for others in the series. And I came across this one yesterday, I started it then.
I am so glad I did, because it was awesome, just like the rest were.

I just loved Kellin and Misty's story. And all the other characters from the previos books being in there was awesome, and a bonus.

Always Forever is the 4th book in the Sometimes Never series, however, it can be read as a stand alone book.

We met Kellin and Misty in Sometimes Never. Kellin was Mason's brother and Mason's girlfriend, Hope, was Misty's foster sister. Kellin and Misty hung out when Mason was hanging out with Hope. But then Kellin, at age 12, was forced to move away with his mom, leaving he and Misty broken hearted. This is where we left off on Sometimes Never. (Not to worry, new readers, we get the back story

Always Forever was just...beautiful.

I loved all of Cheryl's books and this was no exception. She just has a way of writing that pulls you in and you end up never wanting to leave.

Kellin and Misty met each other when they were twelve and thirteen and they've loved each other since but life got in the way and split them up. It was completely heart breaking getting inside their minds and knowing getting together isn't going to be easy.

I absolutely loved everything about this book. From Hope and Mas

4.5 stars

Sometimes Never is one of my favorite series ever. I absolutely love Cheryl's storytelling about these young adults and the triumphs and tribulations they go through in their lives. Cheryl can tell a story that will absolutely crush your soul and then slowly mend it back together page by page.

I have been waiting for Kellin Patel's story since we read about his brother Mason's story. Of course we has to fast forward a few years, because Kellin was far younger in Mason's book.

3.5 stars rounded up to 4. I wanted to like this book more than I found I did after reading it. The h has been dating a guy for quite some time. He wants to get married but she has some second thoughts. She has a past love that she has never been able to forget. Her current boyfriend tells her that he and she should take a break for the summer and she should go out and sow her wild oats and then come back and marry him.

Well, my thought would be if anyone needed to sow wild oats they probably wer

Gotta love those Patel boys. :)

When I first starting reading this book, I admit I was lost. For the life of me I couldn't remember who Kellin or Misty was and I have read all of the Sometimes Never series. So, I went back a look at a couple of pages of Sometimes Never and remembered who they were.

Some spoilers in my review (be warned)

At the beginning I cried along with Misty when Kellin broke her heart. I couldn't figure out what in the hell Misty did to piss him off. When I found out later that

Once again, stupid, big grin all over my face!! I loved Kellin and Misty's story!! They are too cute together, and aside from bad timing, they really had no other issues! I loved them getting to know each other again and I like that since Sadie was in their little camping trip she made sure to get their dirty laundry aired early! I liked that there were very few secrets between them!
Just a really cute second chance at first love story with a nice happy ending!!

I love this series so much. Each book has been unique with a beautiful love story. Unfortunately, this one just wasn't for me. I didn't connect with Misty at all. One of my pet peeves is couples not communicating, and problems arising from that yet their actions say it all.
This wasn't for me but I will always buy from this author!

Again a lovely love story. Kellin and Misty fell in love the first time they met back when they were 12. It takes a proposal from Mistys current boyfriend for her to realise that she never got over Kellin. Can they rekindle their first love? Will it be all they hoped? Lovely to see some characters from the first book in the series making small appearances in this story too.

Mag's 4 Star Review:

Let me first start off by saying, there has not been on single thing written by Cheryl McIntyre that I have not loved. Not liked, but LOVED. Her books have the ability to mess you up emotional, mentally and most defiantly physically, especially with all that Nesquik making going on. While reading her books they own, consume, and eat away at me until they are all I think about. I cannot express

Misty has just been proposed to by her boyfriend Luke. It should have been an easy question to answer but something is holding her back .. or someone.

They agree for her to go and have the summer to think on it. So she goes to family with the intention of seeing Kellin; the one she loved but he broke her heart

What will the outcome be?

So I would like to start this review with a random ramble… because that is how I roll. And sometimes I’m brutally honest. A little over a year ago… one of my good friends, a bestie if you will, calls me and was like “yo ellie… some author chick wants me to be on her cover. What do you think? Some lady named Cheryl McIntyre.” I was like, “well B, I’ve never heard of her. Ever. But what the fuck, why not.”

And thus, how I met Cheryl. Brandyn Farrell was her cover model on Book 2, Before Now and ho

I don't think I can properly express how much I love Cheryl McIntyre and the Sometimes Never series. This has been one of my favorite series and continues to get better with each book. I have loved each character and every storyline. Each new book becomes my favorite and that streak continues with this story. Kellin and Misty have a complicated history that started as a childhood friendship. After being separated by a move they manage to reconnect and begin building an even

This was a quick, easy read, it took only a couple of hours. I didn't like it as much as Mason/Hope or Chase/Annie, but it was better than Park/Lucy.

I had such a hard time with the premise of this book. Misty has a (seemingly) great boyfriend named Luke, he's about 10 years older than her and wants to get married and settle down. She's hesitant, so he suggests she take the summer to "sow her wild oats" and then they get married. Cue my WTF face! There is NO WAY I believe any guy would be ok with

I love this series and I love Cheryl McIntyre's writing, no doubt. Unfortunately, this installment didn't hit the mark for me.

Although, I agree Misty and Kellin had some nice chemistry, the Angst meter was just too off the charts for me in this one. And what's worse was that the reasons for the actions of our main characters made them come off as just...stupid really.

I dunno perhaps if I were 13 years old I would've gotten off more on what went on here, but they just struck me as immature.
