Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to e

Overall Opinion: Well....I'm not sure where to even start. I struggled with this one. A lot. I felt like there was so much going on and happening to where it was meant to be this huge angst-fest, but sadly didn't even get close to hitting the mark for me. The drama felt OTT tbh (view spoiler). I also didn't like the h. I wondered why either of the guys fought for her. I think a lot of that was the fact that we didn't really experience any of t

This book broke me.

If you like short and simple reviews, I suggest you take the above sentence as a representation of what is to come. If you’re willing to read an essay-length ramble regarding how much of a mess this book made me, feel free to continue. I warn you in advance, however, that the above statement is true – the book did break me, and I doubt my ability to accurately express my feelings towards this book.

I have no idea how to rate this. Because I fucking hated it. Yet, the author wrote a compelling story. But I still fucking hated it. I wish I hadn’t read this. Therefore, I have to give it a one star.

I hate crying. I didn’t sign up for this shit. When I read a book by this author, I expect happy alpha male possessiveness with a healthy side of drama. Not Nicholas fucking Sparks. I needed a trigger warning for this book.

Be prepared to get all the feels and more and have a box of Kleenex ready because it will get you!

Gabby thought her life was planned out and that Dylan would be the one that would be her past, present and future but what happens when life throws her a curve?

It started out slow at first and I got to see Dylan & Gabby's chemistry that was sweet and hot!

Slater's always had some feelings for Gabby yet he's never made it know. When Gabby goes through one of the toughest times in her life Slater is

Much ado about nothing. Too much drama.
Well, I would say grab the Kleenex, but I’m thinking a roll of paper towel would be better, maybe two. Siobhan Davis has gone beyond angsty to tragically gut-wrenching, yet, once again, she delivers the true power of the human spirit to survive and thrive after getting kicked in the teeth over and over and over…

WHEN FOREVER CHANGES is that fairytale romance that becomes cursed by Fate until the evil spell is broken by a different forever. If you are looking for a book that will test your heart,

What a Rollercoaster this was! So many emotions!!! I had the plot figured out about 30% into this book and I didn’t want to continue because I knew it was gonna get bad but it was like watching a train couldn’t take your eyes away and I couldn’t stop reading.

2.5 'I'm being generous' stars.

It's hard to be fully invested in a book when you end up thinking the heroine is an idiot and you don't like her all that much.

I don't even think I'm very interested in reading Ryan's story because if this is an indication of the drama and angst (manufactured and unnecessary), then it's not my thing.
Wow.. I am lol now.. the author included everything I don't like in a single book, minus the secret child plot.
Excuse me while I take a break to throw up my breakfast. LMAO

What do you do when you had your entire life mapped out and suddenly everything you thought was true isn’t and the future you had foreseen in your mind’s eye is completely shattered? Siobhan Davis adds When Forever Changes to her angsty and dramatic contemporary romance collection with the story of Gabby and the twists and turns life throws at her before she can find her happily ever after.

When Forever Changes is one of the most emotional books I’ve ever read. This book broke me over and over again. I was in tears for most of it, so if be warned this may not be the best book to read in public.

The synopsis paints the picture of a typical relationship gone wrong new adult story, but When Forever Changes is so much more. If you’ve ever read a Siobhan Davis novel, you know that she shines when she gets into the nitty-gritty of her character’s emotions and relationships. When Forever C
It’s funny how when you read a book, everyone comes away from it feeling differently or affected differently than everyone else. I read this book as a buddy read with Amber Hodges, a beautiful hearted person that I feel I got to know even better through this buddy read. She’s my chicky friend. Well, Amber and I had different feelings about this book when we finished. We both cried our hearts out, but for different reasons.

"Can you go on living when your heart is irrefutably broken beyond repair?" "How can you move forward when all you want to do is go back?" What happens when your perfect life falls to pieces, when your perfect guy fails you, when the life you had planned is no more?

Gabby, Dylan, Slater. These three characters moved me on a level I can't properly express. I fell in love, I was moved to tears, I was infuriated. I saw a sliver of light, happiness returned but it was fleeting. Then I was gutted. Tru

There are stories that pull you in and grip you so tight that you cannot get up until you know how it ends. For me this book did just that. Truly unputdownable.

This story is not just a love story it is life story. It chronicles the life of a young woman and the loves of her life. Her forever is set and she knows her path, all she has hoped and dreamed as been mapped out. Yet life is funny that way, sending us though a series of twists and turns that ultimately alter our forevers. The characters

As much as I found this book "eye-roll worthy", it somehow managed to tear me up! Ugh.

Gabby is a 19 year old college student who's been with the "love of her life", Dylan, for years. For some reason, he's suddenly changed and repeatedly cheats on her, but gives the bullshit excuse that he still loves her irrespective of all that. They break up and she's soon enamored with Slater, her brother's best friend, who's always held a torch for her in the hopes that she finally notices him. Soon enough t

I don’t know how to start this review, so I’m going to keep this review as spoiler free as possible because I want everyone to enjoy it firsthand as I did. This is book that pulls into the story shreds your emotions and then puts you back together. So have your tissues ready, I definitely needed them. At other times it’s uplifting and I couldn’t stop smiling.

Wow....just heart stopping, tears flowing wow! I did not see or expect any of that and I am utterly an emotional mess! I don’t want to delve to deep, this is a book that I don’t want to spoil because it needs to be experienced fully! I will say that you need tissues, lots of them. Just know that your heart will be mended and torn into pieces a few times but at the end you will have a sense of peace and hope that wasn’t there before!

I normally don't leave reviews, but I just had to with this book. I'm a sobbing mess with total panda eyes ;). This is one of the most beautifully, tragic, triumphant stories I have read in a very long time. The story flowed flawlessly and it felt like you're physically there watching the Gabby/Dylan/Slater story unfold. So don't wait, read this book!

After sampling more than a handful of books and having nothing hold my interest, When Forever Changes was exactly the page-turner I needed. I really enjoyed the first half of the story. I was intrigued by the characters, especially by Slater. I couldn't wait to see what role he would play in Gabby's life and where it would all lead. I was hooked. There were certain events that spiked high on my angst-o-meter. Oh my angsty heart! However, I was disappo

Gabby and Dylan have been in love since they were kids. They are a happy couple. But one day, Gabby starts seeing things she doesn't like. And she is heartbroken. But she has also starts to notice that Slate, her brother's best friend, is provoking feelings in her that she didn't have before.
Nobody knows what it's going to happen in life. We just have to keep moving. No matter what. And that's what Gabby does.

Sioban Davis is a superstar at creating insanely beautiful characters. This novel takes your emotions to different places and really teaches you how to be humble. Life is precious and you have to sacrifice things and people you never would have thought to be done. With that said. I was disappointed sadly.

Five stars doesn't do this book justice. It deserves a hundred stars. Talk about a book hangover. Wow! When Forever Changes is one of Siobhan Davis’s best work to date. In all her books you can count on feeling the emotions of every character, but in When Forever Changes she took it up a hundred notches. I haven’t cried while reading a book in years, and this one hit me right in the heart.
