A few days ago, Allie Everhart, author of the Jade series, released another scene from her upcoming book Forever You through her Facebook page.
In this scene, Jade and Garrett are back in Connecticut in time for the Fourth of July weekend and are talking about it. You can read it below.
We drive into the small town that’s a few miles from campus and pass the coffee shop that Harper always went to. Next to it is the Thai place where Garret and I used to get takeout all the time. And across from that is the place where we used to go for pizza.
Garret points to the bright red train car sitting off to the right. “You want to go to the diner this weekend? Get a Boxcar Sundae?”
“Yeah, that would be fun. And maybe we could go to that Mexican place by your house. I want to see if that horrible mariachi singer is still there.”
“You still want him to sing at our wedding? We could fly him out there for it. We’ll fly out the whole band.”
I laugh just thinking about that guy singing. “No, that’s okay.”
“You sure? I still have the business card he gave me.”
“You do? Why did you keep it?”
“I thought you might want it someday. That was our first official date. I kept our bowling scoresheet, too, even though I’d rather not look at it again, given how bad you beat my ass.”
“I totally beat your ass.” I smile. “I can’t believe you kept that stuff. Did you keep other stuff from our dates?”
“Yeah, I got a whole box of stuff. Movie ticket stubs, pens from the hotels we stayed at, takeout menus from our favorite places. I can’t remember everything that’s in there.”
“Seriously? Why didn’t you tell me this?”
“I was waiting until it would mean something to you. Last fall you would’ve said it was just junk, but I knew after I softened you up you’d want it.” His cocky grin appears.
“You didn’t soften me up.”
“Oh really? Then I guess when we get home, I’ll just toss all that shit in the trash.”
“No!” I almost yell it, then feel my cheeks heat up. “I mean, you might as well keep it now that you went to all that work to save it.”
He shrugs. “It wasn’t work. I just tossed it in a box. But you’re right, we don’t need to keep it.”
“Okay, you’ve proved your point. You’ve softened me up. Are you happy now? I want everything in your stupid box.”
He laughs and so do I.
There have been quite a few scenes that have been released for the book, but none to revealing. Recently, she had announced that she will be doing at least one more book for the Jade series with the possibility of more. Stay tuned for more information.
Forever You can be added to your Goodreads shelf by going here and is expected to come out May 30th.
