#BookReview: Always Forever Maybe by Anica Mrose Rissi

About the Book:

When Betts meets Aiden at the candy store where she works, their connection is like a sugar rush to the heart. 

Betts already knows the two of them are infinite. Inevitable. Destined to become an us.

Betts has only ever kept one secret from her best friend, Jo, but suddenly there’s a long list of things she won’t tell her, things Jo wouldn’t understand. 

Because Jo doesn’t see how good Aiden is for Betts. 

She finds him needy. 



She’s wrong. 

With a love like this, nothing else matters.

My Review: This is a book that I don't know what to really think about it.  Its a story about a girl in her first real relationship that turns abusive.  So this one is a really hard book to review since this is somewhat of a trigger for me since I myself am a survior of domestic violence. So first off I want to say that the author did an amazing job with the relationship turning violent. With this happening to me I can say that this was a true depiction on how things can change.  However, I do wish that the characters would have been going out longer than they had been. I think they had been going out for about 2 weeks by the time that the violence started. However, with this being Betts first relationship I could see how she could become attached very quickly.  So in some cases it does sound very true.  

The entire book was pretty good but once you get to the ending the book crashes and burns and well for me it just made this a so so book.  I really wish that someone would have changed this ending.
