After our first kiss, he moved away.
After our first time together, he confessed it wasn’t his first time.
After buying me my first drink, he said he was with someone else… but still loved me.
Now I’m staring at two pink lines on a pregnancy test… and the number he gave me to call?
It’s been disconnected. Great.
This is the authors best selling stand alone book.
Rose and Foster are two very different people from very different backgrounds. They fall deeply in love as teenagers and then find themselves in an on and off again relationship through the years…. One constant being, Foster always leaves.
Rose was raised by her father. Her mother passed away when she was only 9 leaving Rose, Vivien (her sister) and her dad. Both sisters leaned on each other as they grew up, taking turns to grieve and watch out for their dad.
Foster was raised with an alcoholic drug addicted father, who was in and out of jail more times than he could count. The heartbreaking thing was he kept promising a young Foster that they would be together again, new home, new life and be a family. However his dad never kept to that deal. He also had a few more secrets he never told Foster.
P.S Foster is not his real name.
What I enjoyed overall was the skip between present day and the past. This built up an in depth knowledge of both Rose and Fosters relationship. I would not say it was a relationship built on trust. I struggled to get into the book as I felt Rose was weak, forever weak at the knees for a boy who would leave her to pick up the pieces of her broken heart.
In the book they divulge personal life stories to each other, but I found the way Foster kept leaving with no explanation to be an untrustworthy part of their relationship.
This leads me onto the relationship plot. I liked the characters and their interesting back stories and how they brought them together. However I found the story line to be repetitive. I felt I was basically reading about them getting together and splitting up every chapter, over the same thing and the same way…… Foster would always leave. Looking at other reviews I found this a common factor.
I liked the book and gave it 3 stars on Goodreads, but I wouldn’t say I was hooked.
In the Synopsis it hints she is pregnant…..
Yes she gets pregnant and Foster is the dad, but this doesn’t come up until about 80% of the way through the book. I believe if it wasn’t for the baby Foster would never have come back and they would never have had their “Happy ever after”.
