Publisher's Summary

When Ellery moved to New York with her boyfriend, she thought they’d live happily ever after in their small New York apartment. She never thought he’d pack his bags and leave because he “needed space”.

With her newfound single status and fear of being alone, Ellery buries herself in her artwork and paintings until one night she helps a mysterious intoxicated stranger get home safely. Little did she know the mysterious stranger is none other than CEO and millionaire Connor Black. After finding Ellery in his kitchen the next morning and assuming she broke his #1 rule about sleepovers, he becomes intrigued, not only by her stubbornness and defiance, but by her kindness.

Connor Black, emotionally dead and damaged, stemming from a personal tragedy, made a vow to never love or fall in love with a woman, until Ellery Lane walked into his life by accident. After she opens up and shows him her world, Connor starts to feel emotions and feelings he never knew existed. Despite the rumors and warnings regarding Connor Black and his use and misuse of women, Ellery finds herself being drawn into his world.

Ellery knows they can never be together because she is harboring a deep secret that could destroy Connor emotionally forever. Join Connor and Ellery as they embark on a journey of courage, love and strength. Will it be enough to save them?

    "Boring, predictable …"
    What did you like best about Forever Black? What did you like least?

    Ellery has an interesting problem, She otherwise was predictable and stubborn. I was hoping for some sort of twist that never came. It was kinda depressing.


    Would you recommend Forever Black to your friends? Why or why not?

    No it was predictable and depressing


    What aspect of Felicity Munroe and David Benjamin Bliss ’s performance would you have changed?

    The narrators were good.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "I'm an Ellery Fan"

    I really enjoyed this book. While I loved the interaction between Connor and Ellery it was the feisty personality of Ellery that kept me so involved. I love that she is her own person and doesn't bow down to Connor. This was a very easy and enjoyable listen.

    Story
    "So many emotions!"

    I am finding that I really enjoy books that are more deep and have more details into the lives of the totally F'd up. As are we all, this couple is real and has major hangups. I can totally see this couple, they are both strong but in different ways, they are both weak but in different ways. I love the story, beginning to end, there are times I was so angry, cried and laughed, truly wonderful. Narration was good/great, Felicity Munroe did really well, I don't recall hearing her before but she did well. David Benjamin Bliss was good as Connor, we only hear David's narration in one chapter, 35 I think in this book. David's other voices are a bit strange, his voice for Ellery was difficult but I got used to it, doesn't take away from the story. Can't wait to listen to the next one. I couldn't fall asleep until this one was finished!

    "Forever Fabulous !!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book has moved me beyond words. I've read some of the reviews about it being compared to 50 shades and it's NOTHING LIKE IT! I don't know what book they were reading. The storyline is very beautiful and touching. I cried and laughed and just plain loved this book. It's emotional and beautiful and doesn't fail. For this being the authors first book ever published, I must give her more than 5 stars because she wrote this well. People are saying there were some errors but I didn't find any as a friend told me she fixed them and republished the book. Kudos to you Ms. Lynn for an outstanding first novel that tugged at my heartstrings. I am a huge fan now.... For people who are sick of a story about a rich sex crazed bachelor - Stay away. The description gives a very good detail of what to expect in this story..

    Story
    "My New Fifty shades of Black"
    If you could sum up Forever Black in three words, what would they be?

    This book was so deep ant time that I found myself weeping in my car.I loved Ellery personality and her strength. although I though it would be like fifty shades of grey, it was WAY better! I cannot wait to read the next one. I must mention that I rather listen to Felicity Munroe any day over the very annoying voice of Becca Battoe who made me dislike the audio version of fifty shades.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I didn't like the fact that they never touched on whether Peyton and Doctor Hottie got engaged and when.


    Have you listened to any of Felicity Munroe and David Benjamin Bliss ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first time I listen to them.


    Who was the most memorable character of Forever Black and why?

    Ellery! She was a force to be reckoned with and made the story what it was.


    Any additional comments?

    You have a new fan!

    Story
    "New Adult/College"

    This book is considered New Adult/College. Not a teen book but not quite an adult book. The characters are usually 19-26. Generally this category is for 17 and up readers due to the mature theme, language and a little more detailed sex scenes. For me, the NA/C books are a hit or a miss. This book was a miss for me. I didn't hate the book, I just felt like the characters were too immature, I am probably older than the targeted audience for this book The narrator sounded very young but did a great job.I won't be listening to the next 2 books in this trilogy. . .

    "Forever Trilogy #1"

    I loved, loved, loved this audio! I put off listening to this series because I read mixed reviews, wow I wish I hadn't, it is so good! I love Conner and Ellery is fantastic. Ellery is funny, sarcastic, and doesn't take any crap from Conner.

    I loved listening to their banter back and forth. I loved their supporting friends, especially Peyton.

    A great chapter is when Ellery is at the beach (dressed to the nines) after a function and Conner is trying to convince her to get in the car and she says "only if you catch me" and she ran! He began chasing her in his ARMANI tux, it was too sweet and fun.

    There are several parts in this audio that will make you cry ugly, I'm serious. <--Went through a box of tissues just listening to Part one!

    Many books end before we get to experience a touch of what their future will look like, well not this one. It was told from both of their POV's. We also get a little treat as the end.

    Story
    "Not a favorite"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story was weird. The main character "El" plays games and somehow Connor manages to fall in love despite their instant arguing and fighting. A stronger more believable storyline where the female character has some sense and the make character responds like a real man would respond not something this unbelievable.


    What was most disappointing about Sandi Lynn’s story?

    The female character was weak and needy.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Felicity Munroe and David Benjamin Bliss ?

    Sure


    Was Forever Black worth the listening time?

    Not unless you have nothing else to do

    "A Satisfying Series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Forever Black to be better than the print version?

    I have not read any of this series in print; however, I love the use of two narrators (both are excellent) and the author's use of speaking from both character's perspectives. That's what made this series really enjoyable to the conclusion (and a very satisfying conclusion.)


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The narrators - they really brought the characters to life as well as making the author's words sing.


    Any additional comments?

    Based on this series, I will check out more of Sandi Lynn's books as they make their way to Audible. I hope she employs similar writing perspectives and the same narrators!

    "one of the better romance novels"

    However, at times the female lead character got on my nerves, she did some childish things. That made him the more so a loveable hero though.
    Narration is OK but not outstanding.

    "an enjoyable distraction"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Although it is an enjoyable story line I felt it followed the path of Fifty Shades of Grey without too much graphical additions, characters in some parts speak exact lines from the trilogy. that lets the author down. its not an original if its along the lines of another book.


    Would you recommend Forever Black to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book to anyone who wants a pleasant short story, but would need to tell them its very much a water down version of the fifty shades.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the narrator was actually very annoying. I think they needed to try to put the characters on better female reader that cant mimics a male line or vice versa should be able to change the tone and pitch of their voice, Sadly this was lacking in this story


    Do you think Forever Black needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Well I know it has a follow up book I have listened to it


    Any additional comments?

    Put me off a bit when I heard the mimic of The Fifty shades word for word and action for action. This lets the author down very badly Narrator could have been better, but still a pleasant read.
