Publisher's Summary

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 10 years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

different from the movie but still great read

there are some differences though still many similarities with the movie. I picked up the book because the movie was so sweet and funny. The book had much more plot with more side characters and a son instead of a daughter. The story really gets into more of their lives and the struggle to forgive. The situation with his parents in the movie is sort of reversed as well. Both are alive but he hates his father's (not a preacher in the books) condemning ways and struggles to forgive his mother's allowance of what his father has done. there are many of the bits of the movie where they took it from the book like the voicemail, his friend Mason's death, parts of their date etc though the simplified much of the book to make a sweet romantic movie. The way the brother was in the movie had sort of creeped me out because he was so over bearing and possessive of Josie- it's cause the part in the book was written as her current boyfriend so made much more sense. All in all I adore the movie and yet still find myself intrigued but the muchly different plot of the book. I plan on picking up the rest of the series now.

Good Lord this book was awful.

Absolutely awful! I only purchased this book because of the movie trailer, which I’m considering not wasting my money.. if it’s ANYTHING like the book. Starting at the characters, Liam is a complete tool. JoJo is just.. completely unrealistic. The story is predictable and slow. I usually adore these cheesy love stories but this is horrible. I had to literally FORCE myself to finish even though I found myself throwing up in my mouth at the end.

Excellent book! I hated when I had to stop listening to it and couldn't wait until I could listen to it again and finish the book. I would recommend this book to everyone as I truly loved it!

Super Charming Story

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES! This is story is really engaging. It was a really endearing story and it made me smile quite a bit.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Forever My Girl?

I loved the honesty of the characters and the way they interacted. It was refreshing not to have a cookie cutter interaction.

Have you listened to any of Stephanie Rose and Nelson Hobbs ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I haven't listened to any of their other performances.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have listened to this book all in one setting but it wasn't hard to break it up. It was still really easy to follow.

Any additional comments?

In my opinion listening to this book was better than watching the movie.

Okay

Obvious plot line, but really well narrated and nicely written. An easy book but not a series I’ll continue with.
