Book Description

It’s the captivating conclusion to this moving saga of choices made and chances lost.

Over a decade ago, Alexa Moore’s first love vanished without warning. After years of mourning Carter Storm’s fateful departure, her emotional wounds have faded and she is finally free from the pain of her past. Now in her mid-twenties, her future includes the perfect husband and a lucrative career as a make-up artist. Of course, all this comes to a screeching halt when the past suddenly comes rushing back at her. The moment Carter Storm returns and reveals the truth about his mysterious disappearance, Alexa’s life is irrevocably altered. Every irrepressible emotion she ever tried to bury for him is inexplicably rehashed. In the wake of their rekindled friendship, Alexa promises to keep Carter at a distance, so that her marriage is not put in jeopardy. With all the strength Alexa can muster, she must push back the very real attraction she still feels for this man. But their history just won't let the passion between the two die, especially when Carter refuses to fan the coals of their long ago relationship. As Alexa struggles to determine where her heart and future lie, she makes a shocking decision that will upset the balance of everyone around her, leading to a series of staggering and heart breaking surprises.


Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Carter Storm is a precocious thirteen-year-old child actor awaiting his big break in the entertainment industry. Alexa Moore is just a regular teenager, seeking acceptance from her peers. With heartbreak and humor, these two friends expose a world of secrets to each other and learn to survive in the face of life's contradictions and tragedies. When Carter's dark life suddenly unveils before Alexa's eyes, including the truth about his abusive father, she witnesses her best friend beaten down mercilessly by his stage mother's antics. It is Alexa's strong will and determination that helps Carter pull through his darkest hours. The two are bonded by a love that only deepens as they grow. However, the closer they get, the more Carter's mother tries to keep them apart so that her prodigy is not distracted. The two are forced keep their childhood romance hidden from prying eyes until the day of reckoning, and Alexa's world shatters when she discovers Carter's family has packed up and gone without so much as a chance for goodbyes.

Fifteen years later, Carter Storm resurfaces as a Grammy award winner, with a new name, a new life, and an entourage of screaming girls and paparazzi following him everywhere he goes.  Alexa unknowingly comes face to face with Carter Storm when she is assigned to be his makeup artist. The encounter sets off a string of events that will have Alexa torn between the man she loves and the man she once loved. How far will she go when the man from her past suddenly walks into her future?

1.0 out of 5 stars gag worthy and only half a book September 6, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Warning for everyone who hates being mislead - this is only half a book! It just stops in mid sentence. "I'm going to..." The story jumps around from past to present and person to person.Oh, hello, where are we now? Why are we going back and forth between 8th grade and 12th grade? Also the characters are dreadful. I just wanted to slap them all! Totally horrible.

1.0 out of 5 stars Amateurish. Promising plot but execution is BAD! October 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I first read the blurb, I was so edited to read this book that I put it ahead of my long TBR list. Who wouldn't want to read about childhood best friends/ sweethearts reuniting after the boy has made it big and is now a ROCKSTAR. ( it's like The Mighty Storm - and I really loved that book). But this book was in for HUGE disappointment and a far cry from TMS.

First of all, the writing was mediocre at best. I can usually overlook grammar and typos if I love the writing style, story and the plot. But the writing is flat and the characters are one dimensional. Also, the author has the weird zigzag flashbacks that is overused way too much. It was also too wordy. There were a lot of unnecessary details that I fast forwarded and skimmed a lot of parts.

The main characters are both selfish, childish and immature. At first, it was okay because the story started when they were just kids. And you would they will outgrow their immaturity. Carter/Aiden grew up to be Hollywood badboy but not in a good way. He doesnt come across like the hot badass alpha male (like Kristen Asley's heroes) but more the sleazy, weak and spoiled Hollywood celebrity. Alexa is not any better either. She became a conniving, cheating bitch. Alexa's behavior became so bad at the end that I just couldnt take her anymore. Then it ended with a cliffhanger and you realize that there's a sequel.

I hate cliffhangers. But in this case, I dont think I'd be interested to read the sequel. Even if it's free or if somebody paid me to do it.

It was a good read. Kinda strange story that just got more strange. I felt as if Alexa didn't really have a back bone. But still did what she was doing. Talk about a double life.

Your sequel to Forever Blue was an awesomely exciting and suspenseful read.
Thank goodness for Kindle, which delivered it to me faster than I could blink!

Alexa and Scotty's scene regarding her confession broke my heart.
Later on, I completely fell in love with little Luke and his innocence.
Aiden -(Carter) made me want to hate him, as the story progressed.
In the end, I understood that as a writer, you took me along for that emotional roller coaster ride so many readers love to go on.
I have to say, you have outdone yourself with this sequel!
Now, I'm waiting for the third installment to finish my ride along with Alexa and the others.
I couldn't have been more engrossed in this story! *taps foot on floor* hurry up, Jennifer..
I need the next installment to soothe my addiction to the lives you have made so believable!

4.0 out of 5 stars A Sequel That is Better Than the Original. May 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Jennifer Edlund's sequel to Forever Blue is a fast moving story with plot turns and twists that keep the reader interested throughout. It's a quick, easy, and enjoyable read. Though not great literature, it is a page turner that will keep you engrossed. Ms. Edlund is developing her skills as a writer, and this book shows more polish than her first.

I would have given the book five stars except for some minor flaws that don't mar the story line. These included a few spelling and grammatical errors and occasional awkward language flaws that were not caught by the editor. She also used southern California locales in a way that stretches literary license a bit. But, I emphasize, that these all are minor flaws that do not detract in any way from the enjoyment of the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars I'm sorry I paid for ths book. July 28, 2012
By Cat
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although an adult I do sometimes enjoy YA literature when the characters and story are compelling. In this case I was intrigued by the idea of the main character reconnecting with a childhood sweetheart who had, in the interim, become famous. Initially the book held promise. Although a bit disorganized I thought there was an effort at character development and I was willing to overlook some gaping holes in the hopes that things might be filled in later. As the book progressed however the main characters became less and less sympathetic and it became apparent that the secondary aspects of the plot were not credible enough to support the story. The book ended abruptly and failed to resolve any of the issues raised. This was not a complete story and the invitation to buy the sequel left me feeling cheated.

Melissa Cushing's review
Jul 28, 13

5 of 5 stars
bookshelves: favorites
Read from July 27 to 28, 2013

First, Thank you to Jennifer Edlund for the copy I won on Goodreads! I absolutely loved this book, although at times I had a hard time with the excessive tragedy this dear character Alexa had to go through on a "too" regular basis. I did manage to relate to her character at times though, so I honestly loved it. I really am torn when deciding who I am choosing to be her perfect "man", when it comes to this series. Basically, I loved the childhood portion of the book, when Alexa's character was around 12 and she was going through the "awkward" years, I know that I remember times like those in middle school, and then suddenly, in moves this new boy across the street, Carter Storm, and instantly they have a connection, they have something in common, namely basketball, and basically become great friends who over the course of 2 years become more than friends, but innocently, and at a young, tender, sweet age...... but with his untimely departure, upon moving to relocate for his annoying mothers purpose of turning her kids into child stars,and earlier than expected in Carter's mothers attempt at seperating the two of them for good,they lose touch and too much time passes. Years!

Alexa's life goes through serious life changing events, over the course of the next few years, with TOO much tragedy for me to mention. But even through the trials and tribulations Alexa still is able to make something of herself and rise above the tragedy, and even meets an incredible man, Scott, that to be honest, I fell in love with instantly. Which made this story so difficult to endure, but in a good way.
