*Thanks Jasinda for giving me the opportunity to read and review Forever & Always
Falling Into You is one of my top 10 emotional reads ever. After reading the synopsis, I found the pen-pal aspect of Forever & Always to be interesting and different from what I have read before. I wanted to see what Jasinda had come up with. I knew that if Forever & Always was just as good as Falling Into You, it was going to be great. I won't say much about the story itself because the blurb gives nothing away and I want everyone to get the whole experience when they read it; it was amazing.
Cade and Ever met at the age of fifteen at a summer art camp. While there, they didn't spend much time together that summer, but even with the small time they did spend together, there was a connection between them that neither could have been able to ignore. They start sending weekly letters to each other where they pour their feelings and tell each other what's going on in their lives at the time. Through these letters, they are able to be there for one another through the good and bad, and as the time passes, they end up falling in love.
Their story really touched me. Jasinda once again threw me on an emotional rollercoaster. Ever and Cade went through so much shit in this book, my heart ached for them. And just when I thought things were going great, Jasinda did a three-sixty. The ending wrecked me. I was a sobbing mess when I finished it and I need book two to reassure me that things will be good again for Ever and Cade and they'll be able to have a HEA.
My favorite part of this book was that I was able to read the letters Ever & Cade exchanged. It gave me a lot of insight into the emotional state of these characters. Also, I loved the dual point of view because even though they poured everything into the letters, there were times were they did hold back certain things from one another. Their story build slowly over time, but it is so worth it.
Jasinda once again wrote one beautiful story. It was well-written as well as super emotional. This one is definitely one of the best books I've read so far this year. I highly recommend it.
