Publisher's Summary

The words “For Lila, forever” adorned the front of the envelope in blue ink, the handwriting all too familiar. But it didn’t matter what it said. I didn’t have the heart to open it.

We couldn’t be together.

Not after everything....

Leaving Rose Crossing, Maine was one of the most painful moments of my life - or at least it was until the day I came face-to-face with Thayer Ainsworth again.

After a decade of searching, he’s found me, and he wants to know why I quit my housemaid job and left his family’s island estate without so much as a goodbye. But I’m bound by a devastating secret much bigger than the two of us, and telling him the truth has consequences.

Looking into the eyes of the only man I’ve ever loved, I tell him the only thing I’m allowed to: never contact me again. And when he’s gone, I sit down and finally open his letter.

Only it isn’t a letter at all.

And it changes everything.

SORRY.. but it’s a thumbs down

Over the years I have enjoyed some of Winter Renshaw’s other books.. but sadly, and disappointingly, not this one. Avie Paige’s narration was ok but the dual POV story cried out for a good male narrator.. and a female narrator who can convincingly sound like a male.. but alas it wasn’t to be.

It stretches over four parts.. but (IMO) it rushes, jumps and leaps throughout, it felt rushed, had no depth and threads were woven but were then left dangling never to be mentioned again. WR told you in a brief sentence rather than actually showing you the scene unfold.. so the mental images were more 2D than 3D. I worked my way through the story.. but I was disappointed that I didn’t feel any chemistry, that the characters weren’t fully developed and that the pace was off. The heroine was 18 the hero 19 then it skip-jumped 10 yrs and there was anxiety, angst, drama, misunderstandings, secrets.. blah blah blah.

Worth a credit? “Never judge a book by its cover.. never judge a book by its cover.. never judge a book.... and sorry folks that’s a no.

Unconditional Devotion


Parts of this story gave me anxiety waiting for the other shoe to drop. The dedication to the summer fling becoming his forever was an endearing tale with just the right level of angst and tenderness. The revelations of what all took place was not as predictable as I initially suspected.

Avie Paige did a great job narrating and was easy to listen too.


I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

different

the narration was different than what I'm used to, but not in a bad way. the narrator didn't seem to change her voice much at all between characters, but I was still fine following the story. I read this book when it came out, but it's been so long, I forgot so many details, so it was almost new. I enjoyed it

Great Book

For Lila, Forever was a great read by Winter Renshaw. Lila and Thayer met on the island that belonged to Thayer’s grandfather. She moved in to live with her grandparents after her mothers tragic death. They are the caretakers of the homes on the island and Thayer is supposed to stay away from her. But they cant fight their connection. Thayer left Rose Crossing, Maine to go back to school and Lila wasn’t there when he returned. But after a decade, Thayer found Lila and couldn’t believe what kept her away from him all that time. I enjoyed reading this book and cant wait to read more by the author.

Epic epic love story

:grips heart and swoons: This story was everything! It was filled with so much heart, emotion, and just true feeling. Thayer and Lila come from two different worlds. His family is wealthy. Her family is lower income, they are the help. They meet on the island Thayer's grand father owns and a friendship forms. Even though it's forbidden, a romance blooms and true love is felt. As Thayer comes back from college ready to start a life with Lila, she's gone with no explanation. As he searches for her he learns family secrets. Lila's life has been anything but easy. Falling in love with Thayer complicated things. Now it's years later and he wants the truth. But if she tells him the truth of everything it could mean the downfall of her own life and a life she is responsible for. That's all your getting from me! This book had me guessing from page one until the end. I felt like I went on this journey with Thayer and Lila. Gosh I loved every minute of it. And this narrator brought it all to life. I felt every word. This is a truly epic romance with suspense that will keep readers enthralled. I definitely want to read more from this author.
