That Forever Girl by Meghan Quinn Review


* * * * * * * * * * *


USA Today bestselling author Meghan Quinn’s second book in the Getting Lucky series brings heart, humor, and heat back to Port Snow.

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.

I am in love with Meghan Quinn’s Getting Lucky series and Port Snow, Maine! I love, love, love small town romances, and this series from Quinn has me bursting with excitement. Quinn’s writing style is an engaging blend of humor, heat and heart. She never fails to pull me in with her storytelling, and she did that in this story with her fantastic sense of humor, plenty of heart-wrenching emotion and a fair dose of steam. Port Snow is vividly depicted as the picturesque coastal Maine small town where Quinn introduces readers to the four Knightly brothers, who are all cursed in the romance department, and their beleaguered sister.

I don’t want to spoil a single thing about this story, so I’ll just say that Quinn does the second chance romance right.  This couple has one heck of a complicated, painful and long history going back to the sixth grade. Rogan Knightly had a bright and promising future laid out in front of him as a professional football player when he and his high school sweetheart left for college together. Tragedy strikes, leaving Rogan bitter, angry, resentful and unable to see any sort of future for himself, let alone one that includes his forever girl, Harper Sanders. Harper carries her own baggage about what happened to Rogan, and losing him leaves her broken-hearted and lost. Seven long, torturous years later, Harper returns to Port Snow for good.

That Forever Girl was a wonderful example of the originality that is Meghan Quinn’s writing. Emotionally devastating yet charming, this was a heart-tugging, slow-burning second-chance romance, and I didn’t want to put it down. There was so much heartbreak and damage to heal between Harper and Rogan before they could have any kind of chance, and Quinn didn’t shy away from a single painful piece of their history as she took readers along for the ride to their reconciliation. This is a couple that I couldn’t help but root for, and I devoured their story with a racing, hopeful heart. Five smooches from me for That Forever Girl by Meghan Quinn!
