Britt’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Where to begin? I’m a HUGE lover of MC romance, I usually devour every single one I get my hands on from the sugary sweet to the gritty and raw. Forever My Own has so much promise to be an amazing book, but it just fell a bit short for me. I could see myself truly loving the characters and when I wasn’t pulled out of the story I truly did enjoy them.
Cat and Fox have quite the emotional and sweet second chance, along with a surprise baby. Those are usually two things I eat up, but this book needs A LOT of love from an editor. While I usually don’t nit pick at editing when I receive an ARC the switches between 1st, 2nd AND 3rd person and the switches between past and present tense were so frequent I was distracted for quite a majority of the book.
That said, when I wasn’t distracted I was genuinely enjoying their story and see a lot of potential for this book to be truly wonderful with some editing.
Update: After speaking with the author, I learned she is having this book re-edited and an updated version will be available when that is complete. I will be reading the updated version and updating my review once that is available. I fully believe with edits this book has everything to be an amazing read. And a huge round of applause to Raven Featherwood for showing what a stand up person she is with her debut. I’m looking forward to reading her future work.
Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
I am really trying to figure out exactly how to do this review. I understand that when receiving an ARC there are bound to be a few mistakes. I have no problem with mistakes, what had my head spinning was how you will be reading in 1st person, then change to 2nd, and it 3rd. Nice between present and the past… I had to go back and re-read some passages because of this.
Let me start off by saying this book has so much potential. I love a good MC especially one that has what this one has.
Fox and Cat meet each other while still in high school. Fox wanting to keep the good girl away from the club life until he feels like she will be able to handle it. Where Fox was raised in the lifestyle Cat in the other hand was raised by a strict family. There is a huge misunderstanding and a beautiful surprise thrown into the mix. When Fox gets home there is a lot that needs to be worked on between the two of them. I love how he steps up and proved to Cat that their little family is the only thing that matters.
I enjoy it when the MC is like a family and they rally around each other. This club does exactly that. They rally around when one of their own needs them.
I know it may sound like I did not like the book, but if you can get passed all the editing mistakes there is a really good story mixed in.
