Our Review

In Forever My Girl we are introduced to Liam Page.  Liam left town and walked out on the girl he loved ten years previous to pursue a music career and never didn’t look back.  Or did he?

Liam appears to have it all.  Fame, fortune, women………any woman he wants , except the one he still thinks about every day – the woman who truly stole his heart ten years ago.

Liam lives quite the nomadic lifestyle, touring and living out of a suitcase and never putting down roots.  He doesn’t seem to belong.

Liam is pulled back to his hometown of Beaumont after a tragic event and prepares himself to once again meet up with the girl whose heart he broke all those years ago and who still owns a large piece of his heart to this day.

Josephine Preston had to move on.  She was forced to pick up the pieces and build a new life for herself after Liam’s departure and has found happiness living in Beaumont with Nick.

When Liam comes back to Beaumont and once again comes face to face with Josie he is not quite prepared for the effect she will have on him after all this time.  Josie is knocked for six seeing Liam again especially when seeing him makes her question everything that happened the day he left and every day that she has spent without him since.

Josie is confused and questions everything about her life since the day Liam left her and broke her heart. Does she still have feelings for Liam? And if so should those feelings be left buried deep where they belong? The day he left he completely devastated her heart.  Can she forgive?

“I thought for sure we’d spend forever together. I thought our love was one of a kind. I would almost be okay if he had met someone else and fallen in love, but he didn’t. He just left. He said he was suffocating.” 

There is something that pulls these two together.  They shared a love that was so deep, so passionate and so engulfing that really, could either of them just move on and forget about the other totally?  I’m not so sure they could.

Forever My Girl came as a complete surprise to me.  I wasn’t sure what to expect but the synopsis had definitely piqued my interest.

Heidi McLaughlin is a new author and Forever My Girl is her first book in the Beaumont Series and let me tell you, I will be lining up for book two.

Forever My Girl is told from alternating POV’s through the voices of Liam and Josie.  I love dual POV’s and this is told in such a way that it allows the reader the chance to get close to the characters and really feel their story.  We get to hear from two different voices and each brings so much to the story that you really do connect with them in every way.

I adored watching Josie and Liam’s second chance love develop and I was so enamored by them.  As much as I loved this relationship, it was the bonding and flourishing relationship with Noah and Liam that also captured my heart.

I loved everything about this story.  There only one scene I would have liked explored a little more but the fact it wasn’t in no way detracted from the story.  It was a scene with Nick that I would have liked to have “felt” rather than “read”.

I love second chance love stories.  I love friend to lover’s stories, I love books with beautiful characters, I love books about deep friendships and I love rock star stories and Forever My Girl had it all for me.  It was at times sweet, at times emotional, at times funny, always endearing and the chemistry between Liam and Josie could be felt in every word .

If you want to read a book that is all heart – full of characters you will instantly connect with and love from the first page to the last then Forever My Girl is the book for you.

A beautiful read that I devoured and loved from start to finish.


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.

“Part of me wants to pretend I have you, but another part thinks I’ll die if you don’t tell me you love me, even if it doesn’t change anything. Even if it’s just getting to hear it one more time.”
