This book was a roller-coaster ride, and when the second part starts, I was full of emotions. I loved the letters, that was such an awesome idea to convey feelings and keep the reader up-to-date, and then seeing Noah’s reaction to them made my heart hurt. There was so much heart, emotion and growth in this book. Thinking back to the beginning now I have finished it, I realize how amazing Kat wrote these characters. Even the secondary characters show real personal growth. You feel like you have lived with all of these people.
The ending with the headlines, as well as the epilogue, was absolutely perfect. I was filled with so much relief and happiness, I couldn’t have wiped the smile off my face even if I tried.
This was heartbreaking, sweet, sexy, and a story which will stay with me for a long time. The book cover is perfect! I absolutely recommend this to romance fans who are looking to take a journey through all the feels. Well done, Kat!
It's a beautifully tragic story of two teenagers who find their soulmates at such a young age that they aren't mature enough to really appreciate it yet. The twists and turns they have to take to learn and grow just break your heart. BUT Kat knows how to glue the pieces back together again. The story is well written and you do end up with a HEA. I found myself wanting to smack Noah around a lot during this book. I really enjoyed all the feels and it's a hell of an emotional roller coaster ride.
We see the action from the perspectives of the two main characters, Claire and Noah. We watch as the dynamic between them evolves and they tiptoe around, each trying to gauge the feelings of the other. The structure of the book is straightforward with evenly distributed chapters and the story is written in the first person, the present tense and is emotion-focused.
The supporting cast is plentiful and arguably a little predictable, with jealousy and rivalry being the main areas explored, particularly in the first half of the book. However, these are young people journeying towards adulthood, so perhaps this is understandable. Other than the attraction between the main characters, I didn’t really find any solid secondary relationships to flesh out the personalities and they remained a little two dimensional. This was a shame because the author had done an extremely good job of getting inside the heads of both Claire and Noah.
This is a story of first love, loss and rediscovery but at 486 pages, I found it a rather drawn out. A jolly good edit would have curtailed the length, sharpened the story and taken nothing away from the plot.
This is a highly competitive genre and whilst the enigmatic title promised much, I felt the story needed some dramatic twists to elevate it to a higher level and make it stand out from the crowd. I do however, very much like the cover; the symbolism of the two bracelets entwined is simple but effective.
If you’re a fan of romance and are looking for an uncomplicated read, give this book a try. It is sensitively written and I think Kat Alexander show promise for the future. I award ‘Looking Back on Forever’ a respectable three stars.
