5 stars: "I'm in love with this series. Another 5-star worthy book! You can read this story as a standalone. However, this author's writing style is so addictive you won't want to miss The Summer Before Forever." -Danielle Duncan, Chapters Through Life
4 stars: "I loved that we got little snippets of Chloe and Landon throughout this book. I hope that Chambers will continue on with this series. I would love to catch up with Jenna and Miles six months or a year into the future to see how they're doing." -Sara Newhouse, Bibliophagist
5 stars: "Wicked book hangover!!! I read this in ONE night. I couldn't put it down and totally ignored everything else I had to do so I could finish the book. Melissa Chambers outdid herself with this story." -Victoria Bunce, Educator
4 stars: "I also loved the parent elements on both Jenna and Miles side. The impact on them made the story even more complicated. I can't wait to read the first book in this series. I really hope we see these characters again." -Laura Mauro, Bookish Things and More
5 stars: "To be honest, I wasn't sure I'd like Jenna after reading her in Chloe's book, but I was pleasantly surprised, finding her a solid character. Miles had that brooding, swoon-worthy leading man vibe that has girls of all ages falling hard. Together, they created a lovely read, but the side characters added a whole new dimension." -Erica Chilson, Wicked Reads
4 stars: "I found this book to be full of love, hope, friendships, ups and downs. Chambers creates a world that is easy to get lost in and after reading her book you will feel as if you are friends with the characters." -P. Loveday, Lovely Loveday Blog

Young adult age-range: 14+ kissing, swearing, drinking, and drug-usage.
Falling for Forever is the second installment of the Before Forever series. It can be read as a standalone, but I do believe there would be a better emotional impact and connection between the reader and Jenna if they read The Summer Before Forever first. Jenna was Chloe's sidekick in the previous book, and Chloe and Landon are on the pages of Falling for Forever.
#8 in a reality show talent competition (think American Idol), Jenna is turning 18 and ready to take LA by storm. Is it a pipe-dream? Is she being a foolish girl? Jenna's dad wants her to finish high school, and has a proposition for her. If she can get into a creative arts school she was wait-listed to attend, will she forget about LA until she graduates... tricky Dad, he isn't letting his Daddy's Girl go so easily.
With Jenna off to the new school, this opens the Before Forever series wide open, with a whole new cast of characters. Slightly reminded me of the Creative HeArts series, where the story takes place in a creative arts school (loved the series).
The reader and Jenna meet Miles (again). Miles and Jenna have a past together, going back to the talent show audition, and it lends a love-hate vibe to the opener, which is always yummy.
Jenna is confident, girly, and is good at what she does. I realize this may have some readers not liking her. I'm unsure why we women and girls embrace the awkward/geek/tomboy, while always painting the girly girls in a bad light. Neither is bad or good, they're just different from each other. Jenna's a girly girl, but that doesn't mean she's a 'mean girl'. She's very moral, ethical, loyal, and caring. She's flawed, made mistakes, and she owns up to them. But, since she's a celebrity, confident, and knows what she wants and is talented enough to get it, she has a hard time making girlfriends. Chloe is Jenna's only friend until she hits the new school.
Miles is Jenna's male counterpart- confident, top of his class, and has to be good at everything he does. Both have family problems, Miles' dad and Jenna's mom, and that connects them deeply.
While this is a young adult romance, featuring music and a talent show, there are some good messages riding the surface. Children dealing with adult issues. The pressure and stress of forging your own path, when your parents wish you to take the one they are traveling. Peer pressure. Standing up for what you believe in and having your friends' backs. A girl or boy having an opposite sex friend and it only being friendship, even when pressured to date. Trying your best at everything you do.
Jenna's only competition is herself, not because she's arrogant, but because she realizes another's abilities doesn't affect hers. That is the message I hope readers hear the loudest.
To be honest, I wasn't sure I'd like Jenna after reading her in Chloe's book, but I was pleasantly surprised, finding her a solid character. Miles had that brooding, swoon-worthy leading man vibe that has girls of all ages falling hard. Together, they created a lovely read, but the side characters added a whole new dimension.
I'm highly anticipating more from this series and the author, and I most certainly recommend to young adult fans, especially those who enjoy musically inclined characters.
Then this book comes along, focusing on Jenna's character and I'm thinking "oh no! What have I gotten myself into?" Surprise - I really enjoyed Jenna in this book. I loved getting inside her head and seeing how she reacted to things. Just goes to show you can't judge a character by their supporting role.
And Miles, oh Miles! I loved how they clashed at first - and for good reason, too - and then start falling for each other (this is a love story...that's not a spoiler). Miles was the perfect clash for Jenna! And those are always my favorite types of romances!
This book effectively wrapped itself up but, like all the good ones, it left me wanting more of the characters. I hope to see more of Jenna and Miles in the future (even if it turns out to be a re-read). Great book!
Jenna has dreams of being a star. She has had a taste of the limelight and she wants more. After reaching America's Newest Sensation's top ten, she is more than ready to pack her bags and head to LA. She may be about to turn 18, but that doesn't mean she is ready to leave her family behind. She is very close with her dad, and in his last attempt to hold onto her a little longer he offers her a new life-line.
Miles knows who Jenna is and is less than impressed with her. She is overconfident and he is happy to bring her down a peg or two.
These two are from different backgrounds. They are both bursting with talent but when they go head to head things are about to get complicated.
This isn't a love-hate relationship. It's just a little complicated.
I loved this book. I would happily read anything by this author, and I know I would like it. I'm addicted!!
I would recommend the Before Forever series to the 16+ (U.K) audience or the young at heart.
5 Stars out of 5. Thank you to Melissa Chambers, Chapter by Chapter Blog tours, and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for a fair review.
