Forever Night Stand reminded me of certain emotional books and movies such as The Notebook and If I Stay. This book, however, started off a bit jovial and later on delivered an air of melancholy.

When columnist Brandy Curtis went to Italy to attend her brother's wedding, she met the gorgeous Italian guy named Ivo. There was an instant attraction between them and this attraction led to a one night stand. But because they simply can't resist each other and their slowly growing affection, the

It's a story about a girl named Brandy who acquired her family's disease of Alzheimer's at a very young age. She met Ivo when she went to Verona for her brother's wedding. She's afraid to fall in love while he is tired of falling in love. They had one night stand that turns into two night stand that led to forever.

It was a beautiful yet painful journey for me while reading this book. I cried a river, I swear. I was drowning in tears and I can't stop sobbing when I finished it. I could even see

GROSS SOBBING ALL OVER THE PLACE...I have finished reading this book on Wattpad a year ago and I still can't get enough of it. I can't even count how many times I went back and re-read it!

YOU'VE RUINED MY LIFE
(Oh and my compliments-excellent writing! Now excuse me while I go and flood my room with tears again.)
Bah, I can't get over how well the story works with the breaks in between moments. Wow. Just...wow.

Wow, I never expect to cry reading this book. I cried, nope let me rephrase, I sobbed … This story just broke me okay! I just can’t handle tragic stories, I want to read them but my emotions always got in the way and I just can’t get over it. I sobbed in TFIOS, I sobbed in Me Before You, I sobbed in The Bronze Horseman series and The Five Stages of Falling in Love . Pretty much when there’s death/illness involved in any given romance because I am such a strong believer of HEA (happily ever afte ...more

description

DNF-ing this book is really hard because honest to book gods, I WANT to love it. The blurb really caught my interest and it sounds like something that would make me cry. A lot. Sadly, that didn't happen. I was lost (and not the good kind) even though I am already in the middle of the book. I have no idea what is going on and the worst part was, I felt disconnected with the characters. I do believe in that this works to certain readers so I still encourage you guys to pick up a copy. It might wo

The one question I threw this awesome author in between reads was: WILL MY HEART EVER RECOVER?

I knew I could finish this book in one sitting, I have all the time in the world. But I didn’t. I can’t. I needed to take a rest once in a while, my heart needed it. I had to stop reading and take deep breathes before continuing with the next page.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a softie or a toughie – box of tissues is a must at your side once you started reading this novel. It will tear you into pieces, m

*received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Well this just broke my heart. I've never read a book with Alzheimer's before, so reading the synopsis really intrigued me. But this ended up being so much more.

Brandy's fear is following her family's genetic footsteps and ending up with a life just as horrid as her poor parents', but life gives her a nudge at trying out love again in the form of a hot Italian psychiatrist looking for the same things she is: no complications, no a

Earth-shattering and simply phenomenal. My heart definitely took a battering as I read and re-read this book. When I first Saw the word Alzheimer's, I was thinking " Oh this is definitely going to be a sad book...". As I ventured deeper into the lives of Brandy and Ivo, I found myself wildly flipping the pages (virtually, of course), to sate the mere curiosity of what was going to happen next. Now thinking back, it was quite a futile attempt. Every portion of the book just left me speechless. It ...more

Brandy a strong heroine was bugged down by a disease that threatens to claim her forever. Ivo was the perfect book husband who stand by her side no matter what the future entails.
Brandy wakes up after undergoing a medical procedure that promise to cure her Alzheimer's. She though she was 16, with no memory of the years leading up to her treatment or the gorgeous man sitting beside her with a ring on his finger. Desperate for answers, Brandy embarks on a not so typical Alzheimer's-love story.

The digital copy was given by the author.

It has been one of the books that I remembered reading waaaaay long after I did. First came across it on wattpad and I found it to be brilliantly written in terms of the plots and the subject it focused on. Although I never had any experience personally, I can only imagined how hard it'd be, especially among the loved ones.

There are only a few things that bothered me. A lil grammatical errors here and there, and way too much intimate moments during the f

Amazing story! I couldn't stop reading from chapter 1! What happened to Brandy was horrible and not gonna lie, I cried a lot during this story... But how Ivo and the rest of them were so sweet, caring, patient, and loving was truly amazing. This is definitely one of my favorite stories! Very well written and a perfect ending
I loved this story. I am glad that I found it after it was complete but would have waited for chapters if necessary. I hate to see it end but thank you for sharing it with ev

Your research about Alzheimer's disease was so spot on that it made for a really great story.I definitely enjoyed every minute of it though I am crying in the most part. A wonderful and satisfying conclusion to this excellent story.Thank you for sharing this incredible story with us! I'm happy with the ending and on the other side I'm sad because I remember waiting impatiently for a new chapter. Good luck to you and all your writings!

I'm over here crying so hard you would've thought I just attended a funeral ... This book is so good .. really took me thought the motions .. It's like The notebook ,, The vow ,, and letters to Juliet all in one book .. And the fact that her writing is so descriptive it was more like watching a movie then reading a book .. I live for this book .. Tbh I read this book because I was bored but once I started I couldn't stop finished in 1 day .. She deserve an award .. Great work

This book is really, really very gorgeous!
I love Ivo and Brandy's relationship. They're absolutely perfect for each other.
But, sadly, their story isn't. It's so sad and heartbreaking but so utterly beautiful and gripping that you just can't let go.
This is going to make you laugh and make you cry and just take all the feels!
A definite must read!

This book starts off with a chaotic scene of a man in the hospital having his children read some journals. I was slightly confused in the first few pages, but once the story picks up it is great. We meet Brandy whose brother is getting married in Italy and she is traveling to the wedding. During her time exploring the city she meets the Juliet's who respond to letters and one happens to be a man named Ivo.

I really love the names of the characters. Although when you say Brandy, it's actually Brandy the singer who first comes to mind. But glad to have met this second Brandy.

Brandy is a strong willed woman who only wants no strings attached hook-ups. That's why when she was in Italy, she put that out to handsome Ivo. A vacation fling, and nothing more. As the days progress, she seems jealous of Ivo's ex, can't get enough of him, and more.

Eventually, Ivo and Brandy moves their romance from Italy to

This book is exceptional and highly recommended!!!! It has a resemblance to Letters to Juliet but the plot twist is very different and attracting. At first, I thought it would be too censored to read (Not that I mind) but it turned out differently. It teaches the readers of how Alzheimer's greatly affect the relation of the family and how they overcome it. It also contributes a huge awareness for the future family of Alzheimer victims.

I flooded my room with my cries. I've finished reading the bo

Such a beautifully written story. The depth of your characters and their journey was amazing. So heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time! There was a mixture of everything: love, angst, drama, fluff, erotica etc. I was in an endless tornado of emotions while reading this. I will never be able to tell you the profound feeling of her struggle and his never wavering love touched me.

Oh sh*t! I was a crying mess at the end of your story. It was so sweet, it really touched me. I loved your story it was amazing. Not one chapter was boring or out of place. Absolutely LOVED this story :') had me in tears at many different spots.
The characters were just right, plotline divine and powerfully written. The words came alive and simply flowed elegantly from one to other.
Highly recommended!

beautiful book! how Brandy and Ivo met was so adorable and sexy. His devotion to stay with her was both heartwarming and heartbreaking. I'm holding in my tears when she slips in and out of her memories, everyone telling him that he should give up but he refused because he can't lose her like how he lost his last loves. Ysa's writing has lust, love, pain. I couldn't put my phone down. loved it!!

I rarely enjoy reading books in first person but when I got a hold of this I couldn't put it down.. Be it at work or at night. The story line is so intense and unlike other books, it's so hard to guess the next thing that's coming at you. A mixture of romance, drama, heartbreak and it gets you sucked in.. AND I LOVED IT.
I've shed quite a few tears but I still can't put the book down.
KUDOS TO THE AUTHOR.

That flashback to their very beginning was wonderful because of the insight it gave to where they both came from, but it also showed that there was already a lot of stuff that they were each dealing with. The present part was just truly sad.
The emotions are draining, but amidst it all I sense a silver of hope, and I absolutely love this story because of that.
