You know how the story goes. Don't you?

Boy meets girl. Eyes lock, they fall in love, live happily ever after.
Not this story.

Lacey baby, was what he called me. He said I was too young for him but who cares, we were both young. He stopped resisting and we fell in love.

I thought we were going to be forever. We were. Until the unthinkable happened savagely ripping through us,

As I sit on the bed reading Cry For You, my husbands walks by and says, “You’re smiling that book must be really good.” He is so wrong this book was not just good it was GREAT.

The love story of Lacey and Landon gave me this warm and bubbly feeling on the inside the more I read it. WARM and TINGLY… At 32% of the book I was smiling to myself and hoping that they would find there happy ever after.

The chemistry between Lacey and Landon is something people DREAM of; ASPIRE for when in a relationship.

Goodness Gracious. This is one of the most poignant second chance story that I have read in a while. It's a real tear jerker! It's told in dual POV, and alternates between what happened six years ago and now when the past and the present collide.

Landon is introduced to Lacey who is just sweet sixteen. He is a little older and although apprehensive at first, they start dating. They become a big part of each other's life and form this incredible connection. They couldn't be happier until an atroc

Until Forever by Shaniel Watson is a 2nd chance romance that's full of emotional rollercoaster ride of ups and downs, intense chemistry and deep feels. This is Landon and Lacey's story. You need to keep tissues handy because you will cry. I ugly cried and it wasn't pretty as parts of this story aren't but that's the beauty of this read. This makes it a more honest , heartfelt, heartbreaking yet beautiful romance because that is what life is about. What drove apart Landon and Lacey, how they foun ...more

Cry For Me by Shaniel Watson is a second chance romance. Lacey was just 16 when she started dating Landon. Despite his initial reservations, he falls hard for Lacey and the two have a solid relationship. But when Lacey makes a decision he can’t deal with, he leaves her. Six years later, fate brings them back together but can they overcome all that happened in their past to try for a new future?

Ms Watson relates this story by not only alternating view points, but also time periods, see-sawing bet

Cry for You by Shaniel Watson is a heartbreaking story about love and love lost in the face of tragedy. Lacey and Landon began dating when she was sixteen. While he was a few years older, he fell for her anyway. There relationship was sweet and not rushed, Landon who looked like a bad boy, being the perfect gentlemen. When Lacey goes to college, the unthinkable happens, and Landon can't handle the aftermath of this tragedy. The only thing that Landon can do is walk away, with Lacey's heart.

The feeling of instantly being absorbed into the story, is almost a rare feeling. But that was the case and the beautiful start with Cry For you!! I knew I would fall hard for the characters right from the very first chapter. And I wasn't wrong!

I completely adored the story, which might I say might have made my heart tear apart more than I thought possible. ANd it has been a while since I teared up to a book.

Oh my gosh, this one was an emotional rollercoaster, but so worth the ups and downs! Landon and Lacey met in high school and thought it would be a forever, happily-ever-after love story. But after a tragedy tore them apart, they went their separate ways. Years later, however, fate intervenes and they find themselves intertwined in each others' lives once again. 

First of all, let me say that Lacey was an amazing character. This girl had been put through the ringer since one horrible not in colleg

This story will be one of my favorite stories off all times. To say that I ugly cried and was one hot mess over it is an understatement of the year.
You know when you start reading a book and just don't want to continue reading it because you know what’s coming and what will it do to you but you keep going?

My heart was breaking with everything that has happened to Lacey. This woman had something unthinkable happened to her and she somehow managed to pick herself up and

This Book!! I’m just going to tell you up front, you know that feeling you get when you know an author is going to destroy you!! Gut you!! I felt it before I even finished the first chapter. My stomach did that little flip that turned into a knot. This is my first read by this author and Gawd!!! Hold on to whatever you can.

Holy crap. This is my first Shaniel Watson book, but she is now one of my favs!

I don't think I have cried during a story this much since Pet by Isabella Starling. This book is so emotional. But Shaniel did a great job with the issues that she decided to deal with. The back and forth from then and now was beautifully done. I loved this story!
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Rcvd an ARC at no cost to author. I have to admit when I started reading this I almost stopped. When I read about what happened to Lacey and that Landon had left her, I was not a happy camper, then when I read that he had a kid around the same age as her, I about flipped because I hate to read about people who swear that they love the other person but jump into bed with someone I really can't accept that for being a love story. But, then I continued to read saying let me give this a chance and t ...more

I've been going round and round in my head about story, and how I can write this review without giving anything away, and yet, doing the story justice. I have no set answers on how to do that, but I'm going to give it a go anyway. Cry For You was a very emotional story that brought me to my knees. Yeah, not just hinting at it, but fully to my knees as my heart broke for Lacey all throughout the story. See, she was in love with Landon, and they thought they were going to be together forever, but ...more

Gaahhh!! This book! Had it all! The passion, the tragedy, the heartbreak, the humor, the firsts, the second chances, ughh. I can't even. This book was emotional in so many ways. I absolutely loved this book!! I'm a newbie to this author and once I started reading, I couldn't stop! I devoured this book in a day and it's been a while since I've read a book that made me tear up the way this one did. I feel like I have so many emotions going on in my head, and I can't fully explain just how awesome ...more

Until Forever by Shaniel Watson was a great 5 star read.
I was pulled in right from the start. We jump from past to present and it’s told in alternating POV’s. This is Lacey and Landon’s story. It started with her sister setting these two up. Landon wasn’t sure at first because of Lacey’s age but they quickly became a couple completely in love with each other. Until a scary turn of events that caused him to walk away.

We jump ahead 6 years, Lacey gets a s

I'm still trying to process Cry For You so I apologize now if this review isn't quite coherent.

First, I have found a one-click author in Shaniel Watson. She's not just a writer, she's a master artist and Cry For You is a work of art from start to finish. It starts out as something you want to look away from, then you have to look again because you can't help yourself, and then all of a sudden, the end result is take your breath away beautiful.

There were so many moments where I was alternately

Brutally honest, captivating, gut-wrenching, beautiful. That is what I feel like I just read, a truly open and honest look at the challenges a person deals with when faced with a most heinous act inflicted upon them. Lacey’s world is shattered in one night and she has to figure out how to rebuild herself for the love of her son. Landon walks away from the woman he loves, unable to cope with what happened and that she chooses to keep the baby. When years later, 2 boys become best friends at schoo ...more

Who are Lacey and Landon? How do they meet? How old are they? Who are Bree, Jacob, Jackson, Shay, and Trigg? What happened between Lacey and Landon? When Bree meets Lacey, what happens? What does Jackson say to his father? This book was not what I expected, but it was so much more. This is the first book that I have read by this author and will look forward to reading more by her in the future. This is a second-chance romance, or maybe it is a third-chance romance. Things go one way in the book ...more

Wow! Cry For You was SO freaking good! This was my first book by this author, but it won’t be my last. I wanted to read the book because of the blurb. Landon and Lacey meet though Lacey’s sister. Landon is a few years older than Lacey and knows he should stay away from her, but he can’t seem to resist her. The two fall in love and have a beautiful, loving relationship despite their age difference. That is until the unthinkable happens and turns their lives upside down and ends their relationship ...more

This is one of the BEST second chance romances that I have read! It seriously sucked me in the first couple pages and I couldn't put it down. This book broke my heart and then slowly pieced it back together. It is a story of young love, tragedy, loss, joy and a reconnection. I loved Lacey and her strength even through gut wrenching sorrow. I loved Landon also but I had so many times that I wanted to kick him in the head, jump on him and scream.... SERIOUSLY?!?!? If you like a book that grabs you ...more

What a amazing story of hate, hurt, anger, savageness, healing, and love. To have a baby under those circumstances was a tough girl. But then to find the love of you life years later that walked away and to find he married and had a baby so close to walking away from you and yours is gut wrenching. Oh I get it but doesn’t make any easier. I do love how quick Landon falls in love with Jacob and realizes what he has missed. I love how the kids best friends brought them back from th

This is one of the most beautiful second chance romances that I have ever read. These characters were torn apart by tragedy despite loving each other truly and completely. That love just doesn’t go away. What happens when you meet again years later and all those feelings come rushing back? This is a story of first love, heartache, sorrow, betrayal and redemption. These characters are real, damaged and flawed. This story flows beautifully across the pages. This was a first read for me from this a ...more

This was a very emotional read. I was highly disappointed in Landon once I learned what had happened to Lacey and lead to their break up. The point in time when she needed him most he abandoned her. I don’t know if I would have taken him back like Lacey did. His betrayal of their love was almost as bad as the devastation she experienced that lead to her son being conceived.

There were some editing issues in the book where the author got the sons names mixed up but that was easily forgiven with t

Beautifully heartbreaking story! I couldn’t put this book down, it was so good. So many twists and turns. I loved and hated the characters. The suspense and romance made me fall in love with this story. I love the chemistry between Lacey and Landon. I cried and laughed, this book has all the feels. This is the first book I have read by this author and I hope to read more. I received an advanced reader copy for an honest review.

This story had me on an emotional rollercoaster. I was ugly crying, elated and so made I almost threw my kindle. Lacey is a fierce strong independent women that has battled through the unthinkable. A really loved this character. Now Landon I wanted to throat punch a few times but he did finally redeem himself. The journey these two go on to find each other and love again was not easy but sometimes those huddled make you stronger.
