I believe in soul mates. Why? Because I have one and her name is Lily Madison.
I've loved Lily my whole life; she's all I've ever known. I didn't realize how deeply she was ingrained into the fabric of my soul until I felt her absence.
Sometimes in life, once choices are made and paths are altered, it is often impossible to go back.
I know this because I stand here with a two-carat engagement ring in my hand, waiting to ask someone to be my wife. I'm ready to love and cherish her 'til death do us part. But, there's just one problem.
She isn't Lily.
Will the choices that have been made change our path forever or can fate find its way?

This love story was long and twisted. Jax begins the story saying how he was born to love Lily but was asking another woman to marry him. I am not so sure about Stella and how she got Jax to do what he did. But Jax was a grown man and still allowing his dad to beat him down so I guess Stella's tactics were bound to work. Lily was just a consistent person who knew what she wanted and finally got it. The story put me in mind of some of Nicholas Sparks books. This one just happened to have a happy ending. It was a good read and the narration was excellent although I got a little sleepy on parts of it. Overall I enjoyed the book. I did not read book 1 before listening to this one. If time permits I may go back and buy book 1. I got this book from audiobook boom.
I Love a great supernatural tale, a Love story, PNR, a Cool Mystery and Most Sci-Fi....if there are vampires, weres or witches in it, that's a plus! Basically I am a 40+ y/o young at heart woman rediscovering the wonderful world of books and am now addicted! Lol I LOVE AUDIBLE!!!!!
Emotional, Beautiful, Destined!
Lily..she was put through so much, and persevered through with grace...I dont know how she did it!
I am a HUGE Caitlin Kelly fan, and Chris Abell stole my heart...they were great!
All of it...I did get angry with Jax several times.but I know how he felt..he was trying to do the honorable thing...and even if his mistake caused all of this to unwind the way it did...It was almost meant to be...I have read a lot of reviews saying Stella was wrong..and had bad intentions, but did she? Jax made the decision to be there for her, to make her last year of life memorable...he gave her that gift...and it is almost admirable...and Stella's letter at the end was lovely...
After reading book 1, I had to dive right into book 2...I shed many tears and had angry times, but this story was completely special and Jax and Lily will stick with me for a very long time...This story also shows how choices in life can destroy others, but true love will always find its way home! If you are a believer in destiny...you will love this book, but also keep in mind these are young people, and sometimes it takes a bit more experience to get things just right!
EXCELLENT SERIES AND GREAT NARRATION! I RECOMMEND!!
To be perfectly honest I was a little nervous going into this second half of Lily and Jax's story. After listening to the first one, I read some pretty negative reviews that had me unsure about what I would think of this one. Well I should have never doubted Ellie for a single second. I completely disagree with all of the reviewers. Lily and Jax's love is beautiful it is forever but it has definitely not been easy!!!! I shed quite a few tears during the book and was super happy with how everything ended up. Great job Ellie!!!
After reading the reviews of book 2, I was hesitant to throw it on my mp3 player, I am so glad that I did. While not a happy go lucky story, this book takes you through many of real life situations.
I loved having the POV of Jax in the beginning of the book. I didn't always agree with this choices, but that was the whole point I think. Both books show us how the choices we make impact all of our life and the lives of those we love. Whether right or wrong, we won't know until they are made.
Stella, not the saint she is portrayed throughout the book was a little on the villainous side. She knew she wasn't loved, but selfishly took that part of Jax and his feeling of responsibility and love. This really bothered me since it really was not discussed. It was how beautiful and nice she was. He did give her a gift that was priceless.
So happy it ended the way it did. The epilogue shows the culmination of love and happiness. Ava is just too cute. Loved this series.
A Forever Kind of Love: Choices Series Book 2
: Ellie Wade
The title of this book is a total lie. Jax had no clue of forever and I doubt he knew anything of love. He was a spineless, hypocritical, and womanizing (even if it was one woman , namely Lily) character that I despised. Lily let herself be a doormat and kept coming back for more.
Second chances or was it third or fourth chances were WAY TOO MANY!
If the author was trying to pull feelings from the listener she accomplished it but they were probably not the ones you might expect.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Chris Abell and Caitlin Kelly.

A Forever Kind Of Love was even better than the first book. Lots of laughter and tears while listening to this book. And it really brings home "with every choice in life there is a consequence, good or bad". This is a must read or lessen.
Love a good NA/YA and romance.. Run Books,Chocolate and Lipgloss book blog!!
**This is NOT a stand alone novel**
My heart broke all over again. I listened this series back to back and If book 1 couldn't get worst, the 2nd book, this book is heartbreaking.
The main narrator in this story is Chris Abell and he played an awesome Jax, and he made me feel all of Jax's demons and struggles. Caitlin came back as Lily, and if you haven't heard Caitlin's narration, you should listen to her stuff, because she did not disappoint in a forever kind of love.
The story. Ohhh em gee. Yup I sounded it out. I was heartbroken right from the beginning, and it kept breaking and breaking, and I kept sobbing and sobbing. I think at one point I told Ellie Wade that she wasn't playing fair. Unbelievable. This book, this series is like a Hallmark story. I love young love, but Jax just killed me. He is so compassionate and thoughtful, and I wanted to kick him in his rear, but under the circumstances he was dealt with ......... would you or could you blame him??
Some people didn't like this story because they hated Jax, but I disagree. I loved Jax. Even though he's so bi-polarish, the stress of being a star quarterback, business major and the yapping of daddy in his ear, he was doomed right from the beginning. In book 2, this book he wasn't much better. He loved Lilly, but making a commitment to Stella knowing he loved Lilly was the beginning of his problems. He loved her, and even though Stella and Jax knew his heart belonged to Lily, he took his commitment and vows serious. Death do us part. Except Jax can't get passed that, and LIly becomes a doormat again.
The only thing I would have to say is, at what point do you walk away? When does your own happiness supersedes others? This book is all about choices and second and third chances. I'm mad Jax and Lily are leaving my life, but I won't forget the feels that Ellie Wade gave me.
I could not listen to this book the content warning on this book had none ( V,L,S) but within two to three minutes of the book it used the F work twice plus other profanities. It may have been a wonderful book, but I will not listen to a book with that language. Next time be truthful in your content warning.
