Ok, first things first, have you read Meghan Quinn? If your answer is no, you are so missing out. She has got to be one of my most favorite authors out there today. Her writing, flawless. Her characters, simply unforgettable. You definitely need to pick up her books and get to reading if you haven't, totally worth it for you romance lovers.

Now, regards to That Forever Girl, I loved the first book in this series, couldn't wait to get to this one. This book, oh gosh I was on the edge of my seat,

That Forever Girl was about two people who may have loved each other too much. So much that they couldn't help but hurt each other. So much that it drew out the most immature impulses they ever had. Was it fun to watch? You bet your ass it was!

Rogan and Harper were best friends since sixth grade. In their teens, they both couldn't understand what had changed but they wanted each other. They just didn't share it. There were awkward moments, insecurities and doubts, until one day and one kiss chan

There is one passage in this book that is just perfect to describe that story so I will use it: “It checks all the boxes. High school sweethearts, small-town romance with quirky side characters, a bit of a mystery, with a whole lot of heartache. Oh, and don’t forget a classic second-chance romance. Maybe a little enemies to lovers snuck in there.”


Meghan Quinn knows how to write that’s a given. I nearly peed my pants while reading The Virgin Romance Novelist b

Wow! It is a very long read indeed. It almost takes my bed time finishing this book. I hesitate to pick this book because the first book is too dragging for my taste.

But That Forever Girl took me by surprise. Yes it is super dragging like a pace of a turtle. But instead of focusing on the town gossip, it focuses more on the second change between Rogan and Harper. The time frame is back and forth between past and present. And this time, miss Quinn done a wonderful job bringing all of the bits an

Once again, Meghan delivers a juicy and exciting read! That Forever Girl is everything I needed in a romance. The angst from the turbulent relationship between Rogan and his former flame Harper, the slow burn between them, and some humor to tie it all together.

4.5 stars for Harper and Rogan ❤!


This was the second book that I've read by Meghan Quinn and it was a really good one.

Unfortunately, I didn't read the first book from this series but that didn't bother my reading because this book is standalone.

But, of course, I would like to read the first book.

"That Forever Girl" is a love story about two young people, Harper and Rogan, which will make you cry and smile through the whole book.

Meghan Quinn has created another small town second chance romance that will make you believe in soul mates.

Rogan and Harper, life long best friends turned lovers, have such a great story. By alternating between the past and present with flashbacks, Quinn provides readers with insight into their friendship. Readers get to see them move form just friends, to the awkward growing teen attraction, to the actual relationship stage. The way Rogan loves her is the way

You got to love kindle unlimited, I love that I can get audio books through kindle unlimited (not to be confused with audio escape). I wasn’t really a fan of the first book, The Second Chance. I find Meghan Quinn’s writing style a tad bit boring.

It’s basically a bunch of conversations, that’s what the book felt, but this one, had a little more storyline / plot.

I’m not sure how I feel about the past and present timeline. I think I found it confusin

“I like to believe that some people hold the beat of another human’s heart in theirs, and they spend their entire lives searching for the owner.”

What a joy it was to be back with the Knightly clan and all the loveable quirky characters who reside in Port Snow, that quaint little New England town where meddlers, gossipers, and well-meaning folk make it a point to know each other’s business. And the sexy Knightly boys are most certainly the topic of conversation on many lips! There’s plenty to

I’m going to have to call it quits with this one. I was so ready for Rogan’s story after it was hinted at during That Second Chance. I was so excited for a second chance romance with this town as an adorable background. However, I didn't get A N Y of that here. I was fed up with two things, the flashbacks and the main characters.

The flashbacks seriously made me feel like we were reading two stories in one. I would have been fine with just a short summary of why they broke up. Maybe th

An incredible emotional story and one of my favorites by Meghan Quinn. The heartache of both Harper and Rogan kept me on the edge of tears for the first part of the story. Then I was cheering for them! I loved how Quinn did the flashback chapters, slowly revealing the shocker of what actually drove them apart. I am so in love with this town and the people in it!!
Mindy Lou's Book Review
This was good but not great for me purely because of personal preferences. In That Forever Girl, Harper moves back to Port Snow, Maine seven years later giving these two a second chance at love.

What I didn't like about it was that a big portion of the book is Rogan making Harper's return uncomfortable for her and ending up having these two behaving a bit immaturely towards each other.

I would have love to have seen Rogan realizing his shot at fixing what happened to them years before instead of
Sentranced Jem
well, that was a disappointment.

I am a huge fan of Meghan Quinn's books but this one just wasn't my cup of tea.
Hopefully the next one is better.
Damn, I waited too long for a proper review with details but I didn't forget how much I felt while reading this. The book totally consumed me, enthralled me, and I couldn't put it down until I found out what was going to happen. Tears were shed, there was back-talk to my kindle, and some laugh out loud moments as well. What can I say but I absolutely love how Meghan Quinn tells her stories... I'm a junkie for them!
Can't wait for more!

5 of course big stars!
4 1/2 "2nd chance" Stars!

That Forever Girl was a great installment to the Getting Lucky series! I really liked the way Ms. Quinn went back and forth between the past and the present to let Rogan and Harper's story gradually unfold. It felt like a very natural way to share the information with the reader and had an easy flow. It also made it more heartbreaking at times to go from a chapter where they were young and happily in love to a chapter where they weren't even speaking. It really made

Gah this book! I had so many conflicting emotions as I read. I loved the writing itself, and I was completely wrapped up in the story line. I loved the Knightly family in general. But honestly, half of the book I spent alternating between liking Rogan and wanting to punch him in the face. But Harper? I loved Harper. The whole time I loved her and wanted nothing but happiness which is why so often I wanted to punch Rogan. Because he was such a jerk, and then he wasn't... And I was falling in love

I was really excited about this book and while there were parts of it that wowed me, there were parts that left me feeling unsettled. I’ve enjoyed a lot of Meghan Quinn’s work in the past and loved the first book in this series so requesting, reading, and reviewing That Forever Girl was a no brainer. While I was completely happy with the outcome in this book, getting there for me was a bit of a battle. I adore second chance romances, but I am not a fan of flashbacks (and there were many

After meeting Rogan Knightly in book one of Meghan Quinn’s Getting Lucky series, I wanted to understand his demeanor and his behavior. He seemed like such a surly jackass and I needed the reasons behind his tortured and angry personality. So as I began reading That Forever Girl, I sifted through the chapters gathering information and realized that it all comes down to one person - Harper Sanders - the girl now woman who was supposed to be his happily ever after but ended up being nothing more th ...more

That Forever Girl is the second book in Quinn's Getting Lucky series and can easily be read as a standalone.

I have mixed feelings on this one. While I loved the message that Meghan brings us in the book, I was not too attached to the characters. I did not feel any real empathy or passion from either one and not feeling that connection to them really hurt the overall vibe on the book.

Harper and Rogan were high school sweethearts and were engaged when Rogan tore them apart. Rogan moved back to Por

Gah! I loveeeee this series! The Knightly Brothers and the town of Port Snow have stolen my heart, well and truly stolen it. I was intrigued about Rogan, and I wanted to get to know his story.

This sure is the story of the one who got away, or, more accurately, the one he pushed away. For the first half, at least, of this book, I really was not a huge fan of Rogan. The flashback chapter version of him, yes, but the present day, ver
