From the Author

All five books of this series are now out!

Forever Innocent is an emotional read. Losing a baby and its effect on a relationship isn't something very many people talk about. Ihope the book fills you with hope that no matter what trouble lifepresents you, it can be overcome through forgiveness and love.

Forever Innocent is the first book of Corabelle and Gavin's journey into healing andrediscovery. It was originally written as a standalone and only after early advance readers said they needed more did I realize that there was actually more of their story to tell.

This book was not intended to have a cliffhanger ending -- I really did imagine a soaring soundtrack and ambulance ride into the sunset. I absolutely respect those readers who feel the couple needed more happy time at the end. (I'm sure Corabelle and Gavin would agree!) But the book, like life, is pretty messy.

As I sit here and try to process what I have just read, I am stunned and honestly do not know where to begin this review. Do I tell you that I love that Deanna Roy has taken a personal situation she went though and turned it into an outlet so that others may know that they are not alone. Someone has been where you have been, and while no two stories of personal heartache are the same just knowing you share that same type of heartbreak might ease the pain. Or do I touch on the writing of this book. When I requested this book, I looked at the cover and the description and thought I think this is going to be a good one. Solid for sure. After reading it, I can tell you it took me to a totally new level. Highs so sweet and the lowest lows I have EVER reached in a book. (And I've read some heartbreakers) Parts of this book Chapters, 33, 34, and 35 to be exact. Made me ugly cry continuously! I just sat here and sobbed for the lost that two teenagers had endured and tried to overcome. Okay sorry maybe I should tell you a little more about the story, I don't want you to think its all tears. This book begins with Corabelle. A girl who is at best struggling to get by. She's a mother whose baby died at 7 days old then she watched her boyfriend Gavin walk out on her during the funeral never to be seen by her again. She's a student studying to be a Lit teacher trying to make some sort of headway in their life. She arrived at UCSD after a quick departure from New Mexico State. Corabelle is a quiet keep to herself type of girl. Not wanting to let anyone in who might find anything out about her past. Always afraid of what will catch up to her. Living with a guilt that she has learned to cope with by making herself blackout. Then Gavin shows up.Read more ›

I am going to say up front that I have mixed emotions about this book. There was just something missing in Forever Innocent and I just can't put my finger on it. The writing was good. The story was good. I think my disconnect was with the "here" of the book and not so much the "then" of the book. Does that make sense? Okay, deep breath. I am diving in.

Corabelle and Gavin were together since before they could talk. They grew up together, grew in love together and had a baby together. Their baby lived only seven days and immediately after the funeral Gavin left never to be heard from till four years later.

Corabelle has lived the past four years in a grieving, unresponsive non-moving state until Gavin appears in one of her college classes. She is immediately thrown back to four years earlier and you start to see symptoms of panic attacks. Once Gavin talks to her he is hell bent on getting her back.

Yeah, about that.... I have said it before and I will say it again. I have issues with H that rather than stay and help their h through a horrendous time, take off and leave them high and dry. It has been a trend in many popular New Adult story-lines. I think it is cowardly and I don't find it at all attractive.

Having said that, it's the "then" of Forever Innocent that touched me the most. I cried many tears. This writer really pulled me in during the birth, hospitalization and ultimate death of baby Fin. My heart broke for this young couple. It was touching and incredibly sad.

Where Gavin dealt with this by running away and using booze and hookers to cope, Corabelle just went numb, not living at all and not moving on. I really thought this would be addressed more, I think this is where my disconnect comes from.

I absolutely loved Forever Innocent! I loved the characters! I loved the story! I just absolutely loved all of it! :D While there were times where the characters didn't do the things I wanted them to do, I found their reactions so realistic and so consistent with what I knew about them, that I completely understood their actions, and I loved that!

I thought that Forever Innocent was a wonderful story!!!! I was actually sad when I got to the end because I wanted more Corabelle and Gavin, so I was thrilled (and even did an inner fist bump) when I clicked my kindle past the page that said "the end" and discovered that there was going to be a sequel! I already can't wait to read it!!!!!

Forever Innocent was an incredibly memorable story and I know it's going to linger with me for a long time. Corabelle and Gavin had a baby together and lost him after only seven days. It was heart-wrenching to get to experience their moments with Finn, but it was also so beautiful...and I cried more than once. This isn't just a story about two characters who love each other. It's a story about two characters with a vivid history, one that they'll never forget, but may be able to finally move past together. I thought it was a beautiful story about dealing with loss and with the reactions and consequences that come with. Seeing both Corabelle and Gavin come to terms with their loss and changed relationship was such a fantastic reading experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I find that sometimes books that begin after a relationship has already been developed can leave the reader in the dark, but that definitely wasn't the case with Forever Innocent! Deanna Roy did an amazing job at filling in Corabelle and Gavin's past, and I absolutely loved how she unveiled it all.
