As young children, they both were told that their soulmate was out there. One was told that a blue light was their destiny and the other was told they future lies in Ireland. So, the story opens with American Sabrina Sullivan blissfully married to her Irish archaeologist husband. Now, nothing could split them apart because but what the oracle told her has finally come true. Or did it. It only took one millisecond, just a touch really to figure out that yes, the Oracle was correct that she would find her soulmate. However, the man that she married wasn’t he.
Only Forever, was a hot read from beginning to end. The plotline captures you with the tale of two lost souls destined for each other, but where reasonability and metaphoric ideas collide.
I like that Only Forever, presenting me with the chance to immerse myself in my not so realistic beliefs for the few hours it took me to complete. After reading, I don’t know who I was sorrier for; the husband, Sabrina or both. It’s a hard choice to make, deciding for the known or take a leap of faith and go with the unknown. I can tell you though it was a pleasure to see how the story unfolded.
I finished Only Forever last night.
It is 500 pages long – it has taken me ten days or so. That's really fast for me!
As I read it, I found myself wondering actually what is the point of any writing that doesn't do what good erotic writing does, what this book does? What should writing do except explore connections and emotions and the human condition? And in Only Forever Sophia Ryan does this with passion and skill.
And this is not just good erotic writing – it's simply great writing.
Ryan is a talented and skilled storyteller – she has created characters that spring off the page: the voluptuous Sabrina; the serious, sexy Dominic; the passionate Ian; the fiery Meggan. Even the minor characters come to likeable life – Rusty, and his constant search for Nessy (you'll need to read the book to find out who Nessy is). They are all individuals and the story fizzes out from their interactions.
But it is the dynamic of the central love triangle that drives the narrative forward with an energy that crackles. It sizzles. I was instantly engaged and the unfolding story gripped me completely.
Yes but what about the sex?
Ryan knows how to write sex. But more importantly for me she writes love. She is delightfully, unselfconsciously explicit without being overly graphic. She writes with such clarity and a delight in the physical expression of love that draws the reader into the heart and the heat of the moment. All the senses are engaged. Every scene she writes has a unique character which keeps the writing fresh and the reader thoroughly engaged. She is raunchy, tender, angry, nurturing, dirty, fragrant and downright sexy. This is no mean feat if one considers the typical arc of a sex scene. The sex and the story are completely integral to each other. Each feeds the other in perfect balance.
And as all good writing should do, Only Forever asks questions. The story is founded upon the idea of an archaeological dig and with the uncovering of bones this reader found himself thinking about his own life and the relationships within it – the what-might-have-beens, the potentials. Profound. Painful at times. Moving. Don't imagine this book is frivolous. It deals with deep human connections and what it means to truly commit to another.
I loved it.
