Emotional, angsty, new adult romance. Standalone title.
Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.
From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.
He was my soul mate.
We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.
Until he changed.
And I believed I was no longer good enough.
Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.
And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.
Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.
But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.
I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?
Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?
When Forever Changes is one of the most emotional books I’ve ever read. This book broke me over and over again. I was in tears for most of it, so if be warned this may not be the best book to read in public.
The synopsis paints the picture of a typical relationship gone wrong new adult story, but When Forever Changes is so much more. If you’ve ever read a Siobhan Davis novel, you know that she shines when she gets into the nitty-gritty of her character’s emotions and relationships. When Forever Changes follows Gabby as her world is turned upside down when her and who she thought was her soul mate break up leaving irreparable damage.
When Forever Changes begins in the middle of a flourishing relationship that made me question the synopsis. However, once the story finds its pace it does not let up until the last page. Gabby goes through a whirlwind of emotions throughout the novel and Davis’ writing ensures that readers suffer the same fate. Readers will feel every emotional beat throughout the story with the same unrelenting intensity that these emotions would invoke in real life.
It’s hard to review this book since it’s one of those books you should read without knowing too much about it. Emotional, angsty, new adult romance is the perfect description for When Forever Changes. So, if you’re looking for a reading experience that will break you at every twist and turn of the novel, When Forever Changes should be the first on your TBR pile.
