Review

"Stole my heart!!! Genius writing by Jackson!" ~Gone Readin'

"If Forever Comes was such an emotional read. From the minute I opened the book, to the very last page, I was on the edge of my seat rooting for this couple to pull through their heartache. It was a bittersweet ending to a series that I'll hold dear." ~The Autumn Review

"What a finale! My head is spinning and I am on a book hiatus from Christian & Elizabeth's journey. Trust this journey AL brings us and give this a try!! ~Book Crush

This book is to me grasping at straws to have another book by all means. I love the story of Christian and Elizabeth, but to have this to me did not do justice to their story.

The book starts with Christian thrown out of their home because Elizabeth was grieving. She grieved, neglected her daughter, did not want to see Christian, did not want to mingle with her family and friends, was in a dark place until 89% into this book. Am not trivializing what happened to her. It's happened to countless of women (myself inclusive) will still happen to others, but like Christian said you deal with it as a family and move on. What about little Lizzy that has her whole world turned apart again? Christian was a saint in this book. Any lesser man would have moved on from this woman he can't recognize again. The excuse she gave towards the end of the book was even more pathetic...'You did not hold her, you did not love her'. Pleeeeease............

A.L. Jackson turned Elizabeth into this whining, spineless and selfish character. We don't need 90% of a book to know where someone is in their dark place. It became a depressing and unhealthy read for me. They got their HEA but at what cost? Not good.

There are no appropriate words to describe this book (or series). A.L. has the uncanny ability to rip my heart out EVERY SINGLE time I read one of her books. I feel as if I know these people, that I live their story. There are only a few authors that can do this to me. Her MCs are not fantasy, they are faced with the same ups and downs that we all face throughout life. I had to read this book in one sitting, there was no way to stop reading once I started.

IFC was not a fairytale, Christian and Elizabeth experienced devastating loss. While their love is all consuming, their pain is even more haunting. The story is told from dual POVs, which I prefer, you were able to learn each one's thoughts and feelings. If this story had been told in "real time", there is absolutely no way I would have survived it, it was much easier to read their grief in flashbacks.

While I am saddened to say goodbye to Christian and Elizabeth, I am honored to have glimpsed into their lives for while.

**SOME SPOILERS MENTIONED**

I thought Christian and Elizabeth were on their way to having their HEA in the epilogue of Take This Regret (The Regret Series) - apparently not. So, I was ravenous to find out what put it to a screeching halt.

The start of If Forever Comes is heavy. It was emotionally-packed just like TTR but this one is laced with deep sense of sadness, distress and despondency. It didn't take me long to guess what was the cause. It was a difficult read, I must say. In TTR, I was rushing every word, eager to turn to the next page. With IFC, I paused...several times. It is heavily laden with too much unhappiness.

Christian, Christian, Christian... I loathed him when he turned his back to Elizabeth when he got her pregnant during college but he turned me around effortlessly when he committed to get his family back no matter what. It was a hard fought battle but he pressed on. I was clapping hard for them to make it to the finish line of misery and start anew, happily. So, to read the early part of this novel that he was back in his condo, ruminating about his circumstances, the question I ask was "did he leave them AGAIN?"

If at the first book I was all sympathy to Elizabeth, on this one, I wanted to throttle her! I understand why she WAS depressed, why she GOT depressed. Seeing the way how she loved Lizzie, how she gave her all to her child, I can only imagine how hard it was for her to live through this situation. But I do not condone how she treated Christian. He was hurting, too.

The problem now lies with Elizabeth.

I was cheering for her to get over the fog that was gripping her and find the light.

**This is not meant to be a spoiler but a trigger warning, IFC deals with the pain of losing a child and at times is very descriptive.**

"This wasn't about betrayal, not something she or I had caused. This was something that neither of us could control. This was unfair, unjust. This was torture."

A.L. Jackson delivered one of the most heart wrenching and emotionally intense stories I have read this year. I went into If Forever Comes wicked nervous, and my nerves did not let up until the last word on the last page. Take This Regret left us with a happy Christian and Elizabeth, a whole Christian and Elizabeth. I was nowhere close to riding another roller coaster ride with these two. However, that is EXACTLY what I did. The turmoil and consuming pain grabbed me the moment I started the book, and it kept such a firm hold on my heart and feelings throughout. IFC left me breathless and gasping in pain for this couple. There were moments my heart was so damn broken it physically hurt. I loved that Amy stayed true to her characters and her readers, she didn't give us fluff...no she gave us a natural conclusion to our beloved Christian and his leading lady, and in my humble opinion absolutely nailing the conclusion to one of my favorite couples.

What I loved:

"Are you sad, Daddy?"
"Yeah, baby, Daddy is very, very sad.
"I'm so sad, too, Daddy."
"I'm so sorry, baby girl. I'm so sorry you have to go through this with us. I love you so much...don't ever forget how much I love you."
"I just want you to come home."
"I know princess, I do, too."
That's all I wanted.
I just wanted to go home.

* My absolute favorite part about this book is Christian's relationship with his daughter.
