I've been sitting here stewing on what to rate or even how to write this review. Why don't I start by ripping the band-aid off quickly and go straight to what I didn't like. Okay, so you have this love story about a girl who moves to NYC to continue her education. She meets Walker Reed and they begin their whirlwind romance. Therein lies the problem. Their journey to love feels rushed. It kinda fast-forwarded a few weeks and they were already in a relationship, almost inseparable. I didn't *feel ...more

4.5 STARS!

Forever is the story of Reese, a small town girl who meets, Walker, sexy born with a silver spoon in his mouth guy. Their relationship is nothing but sparks of passion balanced with love and knowledge that you have found the other half of your heart and soul. Many people will say that their relationship took off too fast, but I disagree…there is no proper timetable for true love. Mary did a fabulous job writing amazing and credible characters with such a wide range of depth. A characte

This book has an over all good story I was bummed at the ending but from all indications from the author there is more to this couple's story. In this story we meet Reese Mitchell a small town girl who worked as a model while doing this she ran into some trouble and was able to get out of the situation but left her with some trust issues. Not only did the modeling problem leave her with trust issues but the loss of both parents so close together really made her question her worth. During this ti ...more

So disappointed. Novels like this REALLY piss me off because I can't stand a finish like this. They basically cut Reese out of the novel and the man that claimed to love her slept with another woman and moved on. Argh, what a crock!

"I don't know how to describe what I'm feeling; is this what instant connection feels like? Because if it is, I have never felt this way before, and I need to get a better handle on it."
In this book we meet Reese and Walker who have an instant connection and easily fall in love with each other. Reese had some tragedies while growing up and is surprisingly well adjusted even after everything that had happened. She decides to move from Georgia to NYC to live with her best friend, Freddy,

This is probably would of the hardest books to write a review for. I loved the book so much that there really isn't any great word to describe how great this book is. Terrific, Awesome, the best book ever, and excellent. Mary writes her books so it feels like you are standing right next to the character and you are seeing everything and feeling every emotion that they are going through.

This is quite a romantic rollercoaster. The emotions spilling from this book go from happiness to sadness, to fear to strength and to utter heartbreak.

Reese is a sweet Georgia Peach. A tall elegant beauty with a lot of heart that moves to the Big Apple NYC to complete her degree. During her stay in the ever exciting city she meets Freddy her soon to be best friends and kick-a$$ fashion designed(tons of perks with that one) and Marsha her dedicated and fiesty agent that helps Reese kick off a mod

3.5 stars. I liked the overall plot. Reese Mitchell is spending her senior year of college in NYC and is a country girl transplant to the big city. Walker Reed spots her one day and from there, sparks fly from undeniable attraction. The buildup to their romance was not angsty or involved much of a chase or push and pull. The obstacles they faced had a lot more to do with other people and determining what their future plans together would be. I liked both Reese and Walker, their connection was so ...more

Let me start off by saying this book was absolutely beautiful. I loved every minute of it. I never wanted to put it down once I stared. I loved Reese and Walker’s instant connection to one another. It was one of those meant to be relationships that I just knew had to be. The beginning of the book is sweet and will just have your heart melting into a puddle with all the love and consideration that Reese gets from Walker. But then it’s like BAM and everything starts slowly spiraling and my stomach ...more

Where to start? Where to start? Well, first off I will start off by saying this book was amazing in all aspect. First thing I would like to point out is the formatting and special touches. That alone was a nice touch giving the book even more. To me it was a big change from the average and traditional simple text formatting. This had some special touches for sure. For instance there was a part when Reese wrote a note to Walker, it was done so it looked like an actual letter. I thought that was s ...more

Forever is a one of a kind book. It is like having 2 books in one. But I have to tell you upfront, this book has a major cliffhanger. Major. Like I spent a few hours thinking about what was going to happen. You will have a major book hangover.

Reese is a small time girl from Georgia, who decides to transfer to the big city of NY for college her senior year of college. She is raised by her grandparents, a part time model, and is still a virgin. She is completely naive to the ways of the world. Sh

Full Review posted on Book Lovin' Mamas

Forever is my first book by Mary Wasowki and I love being able to find new-to-me authors through blog tours. I was intrigued by Forever due to the synopsis of the book, and since it’s New Adult, I needed to feed my addiction to the genre.

Forever is about Reese Mitchell and Walker Reed and how they end up falling in love with each other. The poor girl Reese has a rough life. Her parents are no longer with her, and she’s had some very extreme circumstances ha

I don’t really want to give away any of the plot but I will say that your feelings will change throughout this book. One minute you will probably love Walker…his insta-love, his wanting to make Reese his, his protectiveness….then you will want to ring his neck for what he does!

Reese on the other hand is a bit of a sap. She starts off really getting on with her life and making changes and escaping all the bad in her past. Then she falls for Walker big style. She then seems to go all slushy and ac

I was immediately drawn into this story. Passion, romance, a bit of suspense, plenty of devious deeds, and misunderstandings abound in this eventful book. I found myself cheering for certain characters and booing others. It was a definite page turner.

Walker and Reese are a great couple. I don’t want to give too much of the story away but I will say that I loved them together. They are 2 beautiful people from different worlds. Walker is a wealthy and soon to be CEO of his family’s business and Re

This is a difficult review to write, there are so many amazing aspects and so many twists and turns I don’t want to give anything away. Excellent character development, multiple POV’s, intense storyline and beautiful romance. Oh yeah and some serious steam!

Walker and Reese are supposed to be on their way to Forever, but so many obstacles stand in their way. Sometimes even themselves. Loved Reese’s family, her history and her drive. Walker- swooon! He is smart, dedicated and head over he

The first half of the book was a bit too sweet for me, falling in love quickly, becoming inseparable, but the second half broke me, every time I turned the page I wanted it to change, not to keep going in this wrong direction, and boy did it come up with some twists. I wanted to slap Walker, hard, and beg him to look, really look, at what was happening around him.

Reese deserved more, aside from her grandparents she's had a pretty crappy life, and I loved her character.

This book started out a bit slow for me because it felt like some other books where they were doomed from the start. Walker comes from a powerful NY family and is being groomed to take over the company when he graduates college.

Good Read!!

I really enjoy this book. I was routing for Reese and Walker. It broke my heart when things went sour. I'm hoping in book 2 they get their HEA.

This entire book will tug at your heart. It's a roll coaster ride of emotions. You will find yourself happy, sad, angry, excited and yes heartbroken. But I'm keeping my fingers crossed that love will prevail.

This is the first book I have read from the writer, Mary Wasowski, and I look forward to reading the second book. I like her writing syl

Forever by Mary Wasowski is a very powerful read. For a first novel, this one packs a bunch of punches. What starts out as a sweet, romantic love story, takes so many twists and turns, it is difficult to see the end of the road. Tissue warning, though, this one had me in tears many times. The story line is so realistic, it reads like a biography. And it is very well told. A bit repetitive at points, but mostly really well done. I did not put it down and have already started book 2.

When love hits, it hits Reese and Walker hard and fast, but forces are working their butts off to prevent them from reuniting. Reese takes some awful hits in life. Walker's life takes him down a road he never thought would be.
Ugh it was painful, beautiful and tragic what happens in Forever. I loved it!

This book was really good! I loved the plot and while I kind of knew where the twist was it was still emotional and well written. Then of course there was more!!! Reese is a really great character and I was rooting for her the whole time. Walker was a good man and knew what he wanted he just had his father to deal with. The story is well written and flows very well. I look forward to reading the next book to see what happens!

GREAT!

I chose this rating because I really enjoyed this book very much. There were great characters in it, but I didn't like Walkers' evil dad. I also would have liked to know what Reese was doing, and the sex of her and Walkers' child. Great book I recommend this book to all adult readers that enjoy a good love stories.
