A good story that spans a lot of years.

Forever Better Together is a story that has a lot of different tropes to it. It's a little bit taboo (adopted brothers), it's friends-to-lovers, it's new adult (college age) and it's also opposites attract.

I'm not crazy about what I call pseudo-incest stories (no blood relation) that beat the "taboo" element to death. Forever Better Together does mention the brother aspect of the story but it's not the main focus and it doesn't beat

This story idea was born from an idea that several authors get together to create a story using a certain name and a few other ideas. Pretty neat concept. That's how Quincy and Griffin were born.

Quincy spent a lot of his childhood with his grandparents because his dad worked overseas often. He has seen many foster kids come and go because his grandparents have a huge heart and foster kids. He's ok with it until a ga

This is an excerpt from 𝑃𝑒𝑡𝑒𝑟 𝑃𝑎𝑛,but it describes perfectly what Griffin and Quincy feel for each other. The problem is that they grew up like brothers, inseparable since they were ten. Completely different and opposites in aspect,preferences and professional choices, but somehow they just click. So it doesn't take long before the brotherly bond to turn into romanti

This book was phenomenal!!! I loved the characters, the story line, the supporting characters and the fact that Quincy and Griffin has so much support. Though they came from different backgrounds and were different in almost every way, Griffin and Quincy loved each other. I love that the author let them and their love for one another be the focus of the book and not some antagonists who had issues with their sexual identities. The angst level was very low. This was a very heartwarming book that ...more

Forever Better Together is a coming of age, friends-to-lovers romance. Quincy and Griffin are pretty much opposites who fit together despite those differences. They bring out the best in each other. This book has all the feels and family in all its many forms is a major theme. Everyone needs a Momma and Pops in their life--people who love them unconditionally. I loved all the Disney quotes and references. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and urge you to read this book and all the rest written by t ...more

What a really sweet story. When Griffin comes to live with Quinn's family when they are both 10 years old the pair become best friends despite their differences. Griffin is adopted by the family a couple of years later. As they grow up their attraction grows but they are determined to ignore it out of fear of ruining the relationship they already have by pursuing a romantic relationship.
Griff and Quinn were very endearing and overall I felt that the book was a warm and cosy read.

I love this book. It was such a great story from the very beginning. It had me laughing and crying throughout the whole thing. It is well written and flows well.
The path that Quincy and Griffin take to get to their happily ever after has some twist and turns as they figure it out, but it is such a beautiful journey. I am so happy that I was able to go along for the ride

This was just.... So much sap. I was repeatedly rolling my eyes. Like, I get that one of the MCs was a big Disney movie fan, but the number of quotes they threw at each other to show their feelings was a little much, and then talking and analyzing the movies was excessive. And the ending felt contrived in the way it was done.

This was a great YA/friends to lovers syory. I loved Griffin and Quincy, they were such lovable characters and they were surrounded by an amazing cast of supporting characters. I really enjoyed seeing their relationship grow and blossom from friendship to something so much story.

I loved this story of 2 lifelong friends on their journey to "more". I was immediately drawn into these characters and their story. And, the ending was just perfect. I will definitely read this author again.

Three Bs

One of the better AD Ellis books I've read. The main characters are super sweet. The family is accepting and inclusive. This book brought me to tears, but also lifted my spirit.
A quick read with a repeating problem of one of the characters being mentioned a lot.

Scared young Griffin meets Quincy when he comes to live at his house at age 10 after going through a traumatic event. Although Quincy isn’t happy to now share his room, the two develop a friendship like no other.

They are both supportive and protective of each other. As they grow their bond grows and moves to the next level. However they are both scared to take the leave from friends to lovers as I think a lot of people would. Be afraid of losing that friendship they have.

I really enjoyed the b

The best way i can think of to describe Forever Better Together is as a cute- no so much friends- to friends- to lovers romance.

Griffin is 10 when he comes to live with Quincy's family. Things start off a bit rocky with the 10 year olds but they quickly become best friends. The 2 are inseparable. Well, until life has other plans. No matter what life throws at them the friends find their way back to each other. Now if they could only admit to each other how they feel, I'm sure it would make both
