Synopsis: I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.

Review: 4 Stars - Forever My Girl, the first title in The Beaumont series by debut author Heidi McLaughlin is a wonderfully written, character driven story that’ll leave readers emotionally invested and swooning for more!

Liam’s choice 10 years earlier has haunted him from the beginning. His choice might have been good for him, but he didn't take the time to consider what was good or would be good for his girlfriend Josie. With his life taking a drastic 180 degree turn from where he was at, he becomes a world famous rock star instead of an NFL star.

While both characters have things that have happened throughout those 10 years they aren't proud of, it’s the journey that the two take during their story that sticks with you and finds a nice warm, cozy space in your heart.

Liam is a good guy in a bad boy, rock star body. Josie is a tough cookie who’s scared of allowing Liam back into her life because she knows what she’s lost and what she faces to possibly lose a second time around. There seems to be a magnetic pull between the two. Even with all they've lost, the hurt and pain of the past and all that they need to prove and make up for, they are still drawn together.

There’s so much emotion in McLaughlin’s writing. The way she builds the tension that made me feel like I was about to burst over and over again, the pain her two main characters feel throughout for each other, a friend’s death and their past is only the tip of the iceberg for the range of emotions I felt while reading. Her characters felt it and readers will feel it too. She’s given her characters an amazing voice and with a plot and story like theirs, how can anyone NOT fall in love with these characters or this book?

Since this title is just days from release I won’t tell you much about the book… other than what I've said and that if you are itching for a story about love, choices, second chances, a strong female character and a tattooed rock star, than look no further, this book is the next thing that you should read! I for one will be re-reading this one and looking forward to future titles from McLaughlin in the future. This new author has made a HUGE fan out of me. Read, enjoy and fall in love with these characters and their story just as I did.
