In the last month, I have been on a huge Meghan Quinn reading binge. That Second Chance is a book that I haven't stopped thinking about since I read it so I was so excited to get an early copy of the second book in the series and it didn't disappoint! 
That Forever Girl - Meghan Quinn | Book Review

There are two little words every small-town man dreads:
She’s back.
Harper Sanders, the girl who was supposed to be my forever, has returned to Port Snow, Maine, for good—and she’s bringing back memories of our shared past.
We once had a bright future together, but when tragedy struck, I threw it all away and pushed her out of my life. People in our small town think I’m cursed, but I know better. I did it all to myself.
And now she’s creating a life of her own in the place where we first fell in love. I can’t fight my feelings for her—or the strong attraction that keeps pulling us together. But after all this time, can she forgive the past and fall in love with me all over again?
Everyone hopes to find that forever girl…I just hope I haven’t lost mine for good.

My Review

I'm not usually a fan of companion book series' but this is the second one that in the last year that I am such a huge fan of and I fall in love with the characters more each time. In my review of That Second Chance, I talked in detail about how much I adored the whole Knightly family and the town that this book is also set in. It honestly feels so realistic that I can't get enough of it. You don't need to have read That Second Chance to be able to read this but I really recommend it because it was a five star read. 

This book follows the second Knightly brother, Rogan, and Harper with their second chance romance. Second chance romances aren't usually my favourite but Meghan Quinn can make me love anything. Rogan is a complex character, to say the least, but he is so sweet and sentimental. At the beginning of the book, you don't know why Harper has moved back to town but you can tell how sad she is and it was heartbreaking finding out the reasons for that. The brothers do feature in this book which I loved but they aren't as heavily involved as in That Second Chance. I loved the text messages they would send in group chats, the Ed Sheeran lines had me cracking up! 

This book is told in dual perspective and told in present-day and past tense chapters. I think it was brilliantly written and as you progress through the book and find out why they broke up all those years ago, it is gut-wrenching. I really wasn't expecting the reasoning for the break up while they were in college. This book is based in winter with glimpses of Christmas and Thanksgiving which I wasn't expecting but was obsessed with as a huge fan of the holiday season. This book picks up right where That Second Chance ends and I loved Harper and Rogan's story. 

There are so many things I would love to share that I adored about this book but I want to keep it as spoiler-free as possible. I did guess who the original forever girl was but I wasn't disappointed in the slightest. I gave this book 4.5 stars, the only reason I didn't give it five stars is because That Second Chance is still my favourite book so far but I already can't wait for the next one! 

That Forever Girl is out on the 27th of August 2019 - HERE. It is also available on Kindle Unlimited.
