**You can see this full review and more at Book Briefs:**The Summer Before Forever is the first book in the before forever series by author Melissa Chambers. The books are all interconnected standalones. I have read and really enjoyed both of the books in the series, but my favorite book was the first one. I just loved Chloe. She was by far my favorite character. It was so great watching her summer transformation. It didn't feel cheesy or forced; it felt natural. And it wa ...more

I'm going to keep this relatively short, because I don't have much to say about it.

I actually liked the premise and the talent competition. It was a fun teen story that yielded some good drama. The friend group was another highlight for me. I like that they fought and made up and got new friends and just hung out. The group was great and felt very real.

Unfortunately, I didn't like Jenna at all. I found her to be bratty, narcissistic, and judgmental. The story felt very trope heavy - l

Falling For Forever had such an interesting plot that's not too common in YA these days. It was great to see it focus basically around an event (talent show) in which all of the characters wanted to win, and from there we saw how relationships not only grew but were tested when this group of teens were all thrown together. I liked the group dynamics and how everyone had their own part to play within not only the group but at the school as well. There's nothing better than a YA book where the cha ...more

I love books that bring me into their world. Although Falling for Forever is a contemporary YA read, Ms. Chambers managed to bring me right back to high school. The drama. The friends. The mean girls. The competition. The parent problems.

Jenna. My oh my, is she a force to be reckoned with. I loved meeting her in THE SUMMER BEFORE FOREVER (Book 1 of this series), and enjoyed getting to know her even more in this story. She's intense, talented, beautiful, outgoing. But she's not perfect. Not by a

Young adult age-range: 14+ kissing, swearing, drinking, and drug-usage.

Falling for Forever is the second installment of the Before Forever series. It can be read as a standalone, but I do believe there would be a better emotional impact and connection between the reader and Jenna if they read The Summer Before Forever first. Jenna was Chloe's sidekick in the previous book, and Chloe and Landon are on the pages of Falling

“Falling for Forever” is the second installment in the “Before Forever” YA romance series. It is intended to be read as a stand-alone, and follows a secondary character from the first book on her new adventures. For people who have read the first book (though not necessary), we know Jenna as the wacky but loyal BFF of Chloe who had her moments of fame on the show “America’s Newest Sensation” (e.g. America’s Got Talent). Jenna has confidence in spades and loves to perform. She turns 18 in the mid ...more

I received an e-arc from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

I absolutely loved this book! By the end of it, my brain was in a fog. I, apparently, got so lost in it that I was having a rough time coming back to reality. Very few books can do that to me so I commend Melissa Chambers for that.

I enjoyed seeing Chloe - and for a brief period of time, Chloe's mom and also Landon - again and how she's doing. I also enjoyed getting to know Jenna because I knew there had to be a lot more to her.

Falling for Forever is the second book in the Before Forever series. I'm in love with this series. Another 5-star worthy book! You can read this story as a standalone. However, this author's writing style is so addictive you won't want to miss The Summer Before Forever.

Jenna has dreams of being a star. She has had a taste of the limelight and she wants more. After reaching America's Newest Sensation's top ten, she is more than ready to pack her bags and head to LA. She may be about to turn 18,

Last summer, I read and reviewed the first book in this series (The Summer Before Forever). I really enjoyed the story but it only made it to 4 stars. And Jenna Quigley's character just wasn't a favorite. I loved Chloe but Jenna? A loyal friend, yes. Not my cup of tea, though.

Then this book comes along, focusing on Jenna's character and I'm thinking "oh no! What have I gotten myself into?" Surprise - I really enjoyed Jenna in this book. I loved getting inside her head and seeing how she reacted

I will admit that I read a lot and when I find a book I truly love I have to share it. This is the first book from Melissa Chambers that I have read and I highly recommend it! I found this book to be full of love, hope, friendships, ups and downs. Chambers creates a world that is easy to get lost in and after reading her book you will feel as if you are friends with the characters. The plot line and settings adds a lot to the overall story making the characters feel very real and believable. I w ...more

Jenna Quigley just got back to Tennessee after competing in the last season of America's Newest Sensation. She didn't win, but she was a fan favorite, and now she's determined to take advantage of her popularity by moving to L.A. the minute she turns eighteen. Her father has other plans, though, and enrolls her in the Nashville Academy of Creative Arts so that she can develop her talent.

Jenna was a successful candidate of America's Newest Sensation. She even had a place in the top ten and is a little bit famous because of it. When she turns eighteen she wants to go to Los Angeles to succeed in the music business. She's made one promise, however, when her father manages to get her into Nashville's Academy of Creative Arts before her birthday she will stay another year to finish high school before she leaves. Her father makes the impossible possible and Jenna will go to a new hig ...more

I was very excited to read Jenna's story after reading the first of the BeForever novels. Jenna, the fierce, feisty bestie in the first book is back in her own story (which can be read as a stand alone) and she is ready to head off to LA. Her dad and she made a deal about getting into a prestigious performing arts school and since she gets in, her LA plans are pushed back to after graduation. Jenna meets Miles and realizes that she played a role in his fate as well when she was on "America's New ...more

I am seriously loving this series and this author! Jenna and Miles were so different, had many obstacles to overcome, including a past that only he remembers, and had very different goals. Watching them become friends and fall for each other was incredibly enjoyable. I want more!

I really enjoyed this book a lot. I loved the setting of this book and the how the music industry was really showcased. I really did love that this story was told from both the male and female POV. I think I loved Miles more then Jenna but she grew on we throughout the novel. I also loved all the various friends we meet and they added such a "real" school feel to this book. I loved the diversity that we saw in this novel through by characters and also class background. I just loved these charact ...more

Last year, around this time, I read the first book of this series, The Summer Before Forever, and I loved it. So, I was extremely happy when I saw this one for grabs, eheh.

Again, I loved the writing, the story is told in dual POV, first person, so yeah, my thing. I loved it. I do think that at some points the voices weren’t distinct enough, especially in the middle/last portion of the book, but it wasn’t that bad, and it was in a few instances, so I’m letting it go.

I read Falling for Forever immediately following the first book in this series, The Summer Before Forever. While I gave the first book 3 Stars, I felt this book was a vast improvement in character development and story line. Since I wasn't a big fan of Jenna's character in the first book, I was a bit concerned that she was the female lead in this one. Yet, she proved me wrong and stole the story. I loved everything about her! Her love interest, Miles, was equally wonderful. Although I st

Falling for Forever was a great, easy to read contemporary romance with two great main characters. Despite it being the second in the Before Forever series, and Chloe and Landon do play a part in this story, it could be read as a standalone. I was just fine having not read the previous book!

So Like Miles Jenna not so much but she grows on me. She was quick to jump to conclusions. Miles was honest and fair. He let go of the incident that had him angry at Jenna rather quickly and it was her blaming Miles and not believing him that rubbed me wrong when it came to Jenna. That and she really should have understood more about the loyalty and friendship Miles had with his BFF.

I kind of liked this book. Stayed up to finish this, but when it started to look like Miles is going to end up doing the grand gesture it all went down from there.

1. Jenna is cocky, arogant, rude, bitchy. She is too much. Demanding. Overconfident. Me me me me me me. That's all I see in her character.

2. Mile is cute and lovable and a total push over. Jesus. He could afford to stand toe to toe with Jenna and call her out but instead he let her step all over him 🙄

The ending? I was expecting more
