Book review – “My Forever” by Kira Adams- quick pace takes away from the story

my foreverFormat: ebook
Series: book 2 of 4 of the Infinite Love series
Rating: 16+ for language, sexual content
Genre: Young Adult
Goodreads page:  https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/22231395-my-forever?from_search=true

In the second story in the series we follow Madalynne and Parker (who we met in the first book) as they try and see if they have what it takes to make the long haul.

The story dives deeper into the relationship of Maddy and Parker which we got to know a little bit in the first story. I was glad to see that we would as we see if their relationship has what it takes to make it pas high school.

The story had the elements that would make it good (them spending time apart and exploring relationships else where) but the pace was too fast. What would have made the story better is if we started towards the end of the senior year and then we get to see them explore life without each other before trying to decide if they want to have a future together.

That was the problem with the whole story. It rushes through the story without really setting up anywhere. It picks up a few months after the first book ended and we basically read the book in fast-forward mode from mid-junior year until about a year after graduation.

I also don’t like the fact that we don’t hear about Topher or what happened with Ciera’s death in the after effects. Maddy was friends with Ciera and it seems a little weird that there was no mention of it.

It is probably important to note that Adams’s mentions in her Acknowledgements that this is the first book she ever wrote. But it would have been helpful to go through the story and mention Ciera at least once or twice. Especially at the beginning of the book.

In this story, we meet the couple of the next book Lee and Jacqueline as they meet through Parker and Maddy and we get to see if they can finally get their happy ever after. I am hoping  that we get back to where the first one was.

Rating; D+
