Synopsis via Goodreads: USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn’s second book in the Getting Lucky series brings heart, humor, and heat back to Port Snow.
There are two little words every small-town man dreads:
Harper Sanders, the girl who was supposed to be my forever, has returned to Port Snow, Maine, for good—and she’s bringing back memories of our shared past.
We once had a bright future together, but when tragedy struck, I threw it all away and pushed her out of my life. People in our small town think I’m cursed, but I know better. I did it all to myself.
And now she’s creating a life of her own in the place where we first fell in love. I can’t fight my feelings for her—or the strong attraction that keeps pulling us together. But after all this time, can she forgive the past and fall in love with me all over again?
Everyone hopes to find that forever girl…I just hope I haven’t lost mine for good.
*I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.*
After falling in love with the first book in the Getting Lucky series, I was eager to dive into the sequel to see what was next for the Knightly brothers. I was particularly interested to learn more about Rogan Knightly because he has such a mysterious past and now that his ex was back in town, I needed to know what it was that broke them apart in the first place and if somehow they would be able to find their way back to one another again.
Harper Sanders was Rogan Knightly’s forever girl and he planned on spending the rest of his life with her—until one night forever changed both of their lives and tore these two childhood lovers apart. Now seven years later, Harper has returned to Port Snow for a fresh start. But moving on from the past is gonna be harder than she thinks, especially since she keeps running into Rogan all around town. Rogan is hell bent on making up for his wrongs of the past and proving to Harper that he can be that person she can lean on again. Can these find a way to move on from the past or will the betrayal of love prove to be too hard to move on from?
MY OVER DRAMATIC ASS AFTER FINISHING THIS BOOK
The Getting Lucky series is gearing up to be my new favorite series by Meghan Quinn and after finishing That Forever Girl, I might even say that I’m now a little obsessed with the series. I loved being back in Port Snow with all the gossipy townspeople and the Knightly clan. Family and community plays such a big role and it adds this heartwarming feeling which is one of the reasons why I enjoy this series so much. I literally just wanted to jump into my car and drive up north to one of these small town by the seaside to experience it myself. The Knightly siblings are just as entertaining in this book as they were in the previous books, maybe even more so in this book because they have no problem with meddling in Rogan’s love life as they too wanted to see him back together again with Harper. I was cracking the fuck up with their group chats as the other siblings tried giving Rogan advice on how to win Harper back and it was just a hilarious mess.
Rogan is a dick with a capital D-I-C-K. He’s really hard, like really, hard to love at first because he’s such an incredible grump and he doesn’t care how anyone perceives him. Even though the way he treated Harper in the past was wrong, I think Rogan had to go through that pain by himself in order to find himself again or he might’ve resented Harper more. He managed to make something of himself and became someone that Harper could truly depend on no matter what. Harper on the other hand is a complete sweetheart but she also has no problem giving it back to Rogan when he gets her riled up. Harper as well has to do some soul searching in this book as she tries to figure out her purpose in life and how she can let Rogan in again without losing her whole self like she did last time.
THIS ROMANCE IS MY KINK! Childhood friends turned lovers who then have a falling out which leads to a second-chance at love, like I COULDN’T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER FORMULA FOR A ROMANCE! This story alternates between chapters from the past and the present and we get to see where Rogan and Harper’s relationship started and how their feelings for one another developed into something more and how it also fell apart. What I really loved about this romance was how we got to see two different sides of it; in the chapters set in the past, we get a more sweeter romance and with the chapters set in the present, we get a ton of angst and we’re just rooting for Rogan and Harper to work it out so things can go back to being sweet.
So if you love small town romances, romances with tight-knit families, romances with angst, ROMANCES WHERE THE HERO DOES WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN BACK THE GIRL then That Forever Girl might just be the perfect book for you so read it!
