Review: Beamount #1, Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

Forever My Girl (Beaumont, #1)

Blurb from Goodreads

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

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.

My Thoughts
I love second chance story, it brings hope. We make wrong choices but it’s a human nature, so we need second chance in our live. Forever My Girl is that kind of story. From the moment I saw the cover and read the blurb I was intrigued with the story. It’s about Liam Westbury who pursued his dream by left his love behind. 10 years after he lives his dream, he realized that he still love Josie, his girlfriend from high school. So, when he has to go back to his town he also has one purpose, to take his love back.At first I felt sorry to Josie. Liam left her high and dry when she needed him most. But I don’t think I like her choices in the middle of the story. She makes me confused about her decision and what actually she wants from Liam and from her current lives. As the story goes, I like her for being tough to Liam. She didn’t make easy for Liam to take her back to his life.I also like the emotion in it and in some way, this story feels real with realistic choices. I, specially like the timing of Liam-Josie second relationship. It feels natural, not that kind of instant love in second choice. I see that although they have fallen in love from a long time, but because of their choices they still need time to get through their new love. It’s (again) feels real. But I have an issue here, it’s Josie’s eyes inconsistently. In the beginning of the story, Liam said There is one hair color that can make my heart beat and blonde isn’t it. Neither is red. Eyes too. Never blue. They have to be brown or green, never blue and then in the end of the story he also said I pull away for her and look into her beautiful blue eyes. Maybe it’s a tiny thing but to me it’s kind of important because it describes the character feature and it kind of ruins my image for Josie. Aside of it, I’m looking forward for Harrison-Katelyn ‘s story.
Result: 3/5 Stars
