FOREVER KINDA LOVE:
Life’s. Little. Surprises.
The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too.
Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.
Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?
And an unexpected journey to falling in love.
Sounds awesome right? And let's get another look at that beautiful cover:
Isn't it pretty? I love how it's sweet but haunting at the same time. The cover definitely lets me know this is going to be a tug-at-the-ol'-heartstrings kinda story and it did not disappoint.
REVIEW TIME (Don't worry, this review is Spoiler Free)
Forever Kinda Love is a tender, upper YA. But don't worry, this book contains NO graphic sex scenes. In fact, there are no sex scenes at all. Just a couple of make out scenes that are pg-13 but high on sizzle. This story might be considered upper/mature YA due to the tragedy that the kids face as the story develops. Also, there are a few mild, curse words included. If you're looking for a clean(on the steam), but mature YA read, this is your story.
Clara Stone accurately captures the awkward struggle we all endure when we love someone we think could never love us back. The couple is forced to deal with a terrible challenge that no one, let alone teens, should have to face. Forever Kinda Love is a sweet, fast, fun read full of flirty, awkward, heartbreak. It's a great read and I really enjoyed it which mean - I give it 4 screaming kitty heads!
Well done, Clara Stone.
