Beautiful and sassy, Liv Preston constantly has guys falling at her feet. Guys break you though, they use you and spit you out, leaving you a broken mess on the floor. No, Liv is much too smart to let that happen, instead choosing to go down the route of the ultimate female player.

Handsome and arrogant, Noah Travers is the ultimate catch. The star quarterback w

This was a sweet, romantic story between two strong people. It sounds familiar but the execution sets it apart from other books in the genre. The writing flowed, you could picture the small town, Liv's old and new home and the phlox field.
This author's writing clicks with me, you can curl up with her books for a long time, they are relaxing, sweet and heartfelt. The series has lots of cute moments and portrays young love in a realistic manner.

From the beginning of the story I hated Liv’s mother. What mother tells their daughter that she is a mistake? I was really happy when Liv decided to go live with her father, I felt it was a good way for her to get the family, she deserved. But Liv is nervous about the move, having two step brothers waiting for her along with a step-mother and her father. But her nervousness soon deceases as she is welcomed with open arms from her step-mom and step-brothers. Her father convinces Noah, the oldest ...more

ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Forever Love takes readers back to high school, to a time that should be easy, filled with romantic flings and parties with friends. Liv's life is anything but easy though and my heart broke for her repeatedly. Like most kids, her parents are a bit disconnected from the reality of what high school life is like, but her mom is the worst and I wanted to strangle her, several times. She's also a tad spoiled, okay more like a lot spoiled, but
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

What I loved:
1) The plot was very interesting.

2) Noah and Liv. They're well-developed, adorable, and I love them so much.

What I didn't love:
1) Grammar issues. Throughout the book there were a lot of grammatical errors ranging from run-on sentences, misspelled words, underlines where there shouldn't be, and commas in the wrong places. I'm a grammar freak and all of these particular issues sadly detracted me from the overall sto

I read this cos it came up on the bar under the book I was looking at so I thought ok. 1/4 into it it started to sound familiar and got worse. This is very like a book by another writer that I read 3 wks ago and I think it's got parts of other books too but I can't pinpoint which ones cos I read that much on holiday and need to go back through them.

This is another one of those books that seriously needed a few rounds with an editor before publication but, that being said, I enjoyed it quite a lot.

It's the type of book I wished I had as a teen: real. The kids talk like real kids talk. They have sex - and enjoy it. They're strong, and gritty, and speak their minds.

This story is original because of its taboo subject. I was surprised to read a book with a theme that most adult books won't tackle.

Don't let the lack of technical skill put you

Liv hasn’t seen her father a few years; after the divorce, he moved away and has remarried a widow with children. Since the situation between Liv and her mother is getting worse and worse her parents have decided it’s for the better Liv will live with her dad during her

This is my first experience of Jade Whitfield and she already has me smitten, ready, and waiting for Forever Together. Her writing is funny, hot, and keeps you engrossed and ready for the next antic or heated moment by this mischievous group of young adults. Jade takes her readers from Atlanta to a little town in Franklin to get to know more about Liv and her family including her irresistible stepbrother Noah. Anybody who knows me, knows of my

This book has taken me by surprise as to how much I truly enjoyed it. We begin this story with Liv who is currently living with her 'Incubator' but is being moved to live with her Dad and his new family. Liv has had one HORRIBLE Mother and a clueless father for her whole life. She has definitely suffered her fair share of misfortune to last a lifetime. When she is warmly welcomed into her Dad's new family she is de

“Forever Love” by Jade Whitfield is a powerful novel that combines romance and drama in a journey that takes us through the strong emotions that come with relationships where love is at the center of it all.
As I read along, I got carried away by the intense story of Liv and Noah, and the struggles they must face, both internal and external, in their quest for eternal love. Both with their preconceptions of relationships and rejection to commitment, each for their own reason, must deeply qu

Forever Love is a step-sibling romance. It is a cute story of a young couple falling in love. The characters were well developed and their personalities really came through. I loved the basic premise of the story.

However, there were a couple of issues for me. The biggest issue I had was their age. They were seniors in high school, so I was just not able to relate to them like a reader should. As a mother of a child if the same age, it was just awkward for me and I had to force myself to think o

Forever Love was nothing like I expected! It's so gritty and raw, it left me laughing and flipping pages all night. The story is not one I'd usually go for, but it was an interesting read. The tension between Liv and Noah is off the meter and Jade does a good job keeping the story moving at a great pace. I finished in no time! If you're looking for a great read to finish off the summer, this is a GREAT one! It's funny, sexy and a fast beach read. Even if you're just looking for great additions t ...more

Liv and Noah, what an amazing read! Ok so I am going to start by saying I don't usually read step brother romances in general it just isn't my thing, but if they were more like this I would be all over them. This was a great story.

I usually don't comment on grammar/editing especially if it is an ARC like this,but I gotta say, the entire time I was reading this I was thinking, "I can't believe this draft is so clean, and for a new author." Wow!

Liv and Noah's story is beautiful.
Liv's past is full of horrors no one would want to re-live. She's broken but hides it well.
When she meets Noah there's a spark that she can't deny, but they can't act on that attraction can they?

This story was full of ups and downs as Liv learned to heal and Noah loves her more with each scar he heals.
With a strong cast of supporting characters I loved this book.

Insta love
The-most-beautiful-in-the-world characters
Not one but TWO evil villains just dripping with venom
A hint of taboo but nothing that should make you feel icky while reading
A tortured past that the h needs saving from
Sexual chemistry with a slow but study burn to the hot-hot-hot stuff

And I loved every second of it

Liv and Noahs story was realistic. It wasnt all butterflies and daisys but it also wasnt angsty. I dont know how the author did it but somehow she made their situation completely relatable which is rare in the stepbrother game. This wasnt the usual stepbrother taboo romance. It was refreshing and sweet and most of all well written. I cant wait for the next one <3 <3 <3

I'll forever love Noah and Liv!

This is the first book I've read by Jade but it won't be the last. The characters are fantastic! I'm a sucker for flawed characters that become stronger because of what happens in their life. This book does that. Liv is a broken girl when she moves in with her father and his new family. When she meets her stepbrother Noah she thinks he's just a dumb jock. She couldn't be more wrong. I can't wait to see what happens next!

After reading some of the reviews for this book and actually seeing this book at release parties I can honestly say that I was interested in reading it as honestly it looked pretty awesome and a book that I’d be into reading. Normally I don’t really take any notice in the reviews for books but that’s because I’d rather get the feel of the book for myself, however with this book I felt the need to give the reviews a read because honestly there was a mixture of them.

This is the first of Jade Whitfield's books that I have read, and I look forward to reading the next installment in the series. Jade tells a lovely tale of Forever Love between Liv and Noah. Now I don't usually go for step-brother type books, but this one really drew me in. The characters were fantastic. I love how strong-willed Liv is, and how caring Noah is. I love that he broke down her walls and healed her heart.

This was a good but heartwarming romance that is very heartfelt and emotional—yet sexy and intense. I enjoyed the characters of Liv Preston and Noah Travers. You get a chance to see the progression of their love—theirs was not a quick and easy love story because they had to overcome some issues, but loves does prevail. I loved how the author shows how the female can be assertive and knows what she wants instead of a fragile and despondent person. When reading the story, it may make you feel sad, ...more

This is a sweet book with a side of angst. I did struggle to empathise with the main characters, Liv and Noah, in the beginning but they grew on me once I got to know more about their backgrounds. Noah is as soppy as a sack, I love it.
I had a real belly laugh at Noah's best friend, Brady. He is a funny kid.
I feel a bit defensive at the thought that they are considered too young to be so serious. I remember my feelings at 17, I totally get it. The story had a nice easy flow to it and the e
