I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I’ve poured my soul into my music, but I’ve never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.
And now I’m going back.
After ten years.
I hope I can explain that after all this time.
I still want her to be my forever girl.

I've seen this book around quite often and although I've been meaning to get around to reading it, I just never actually got to it... but last night... I did and to tell you the truth, I don't actually know why I didn't read it sooner.
I couldn't stop reading! I have to eventually drink a half a sleeping pill just to get my mind to shut off lol... honestly... If I hadn't, I'd never have gotten any sleep.
Anyway... it was truly a beautiful book and I'm so glad I picked it up.
I'll admit that I felt really torn between feeling sorry for Nick and not giving a damn about him, because for one, he was innocent in all this... but he also reacts a little pathetic at times so in those moments I didn't really care about him that much.
I did have a problem with how easily Josie got over Liam's past mistake. Yes... Time heals all wounds and such... but he did make a really made move and his explanation he gives her in the book wasn't enough for me. I mean, us as readers got more of an idea as to the why, but that's because we read it from his POV... but I don't understand how Josie accepted it as easily as she did, because she didn't get the "inside his head" part like we did.
I really did love this book. I will admit that the reason it's not a full 5 stars for me is because Josie annoyed me a little when she continued with her back and forth emotions as she did. It lasted a little too long for my liking, but it's not in any way a negative... just a little annoying.
I really liked Liam. I know he did wrong, but I forgave him pretty early on in the book lol...
What I liked about him is the fact that it's evident he needed to do what he needed to do, but it never deviated from the fact that he loved Josie with his whole life.
I would love to actually read another part of this story focusing solely on before everything in this book... like when they met at high school and such, up to the point of where he leaves... I think it would make a great addition to this book and from the snippets in this book, where they are thinking back to the past... I can tell it's another truly beautiful story in the making. (*hint hint) lol
Anyhoo... If you haven't read Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin... then I suggest you do and pretty soon too.
Emotional is not the word to describe this book. It had be aching for a love that isn't even mine hehe...
A wonderful book that every single reader should enjoy at some point in their lives.
