#BookReview: Forever Never by Lucy Score @Read_Bloom

Synopsis: You don’t fall for your brother’s high school sweetheart, your boss’s daughter, or your ex-wife’s best friend. Especially when they’re all the same woman.

Under Brick Callan’s mile-wide chest beats a loyal heart with a few cracks in it. He’s the steadfast, overprotective type. Especially when it comes to the one woman he can never have. It’s a long, complicated history punctuated by fights, friendship, family, and an attraction that strains his iron willpower.

When Remi Ford returns to Mackinac Island in the dead of winter with a secret, Brick makes it his mission to find out what put the shadows in those green eyes. Even if it means breaking down the walls he’s built between them. Even if it means falling for the one girl he’ll never get over.

The free-spirited artist just needs to lay low for a few weeks so she can figure a way out of this nightmare. She’s definitely not staying. Not when the man who broke her teenage heart into splinters keeps showing up at her parents’ dinner table. Remi doesn’t need broody, bearded Brick riding to her rescue…again. Not when it will put them both in danger, costing them much more than their hearts.

Author’s Note: Frenemies-to-lovers. Opposites attract. Slow burn. Girl in danger. Glorious, glorious banter. Fighting as foreplay. Small-town shenanigans. Big, grumpy, pining, overprotective hero. Wild-child, trouble-finding heroine who keeps on pushing the hero’s buttons. Steam Level: Lava. Suspense: Nail-biting. Feels: Big time.


Rating: 5 Stars

"Lucy Freaking Score you are a writing goddess! The intensity was so amazing - the hug...the kiss...the spank me and make me do very bad things sex...the danger...the violence. I know I'm rambling but this book may have ruined me for other books. (Kinda like Brick did to Remi!)" ~ Not Now I'm Reading

"This super slow burn has 
so much going on! I loved how the author beautifully described Mackinac Island and Lake Huron where the story took place, and how the town folk survive the long, bitter cold winters." ~ Read Me Romance

"This book rocked my world. The story isn't just a love story.

"I was pulled in by the 
intense sexual chemistry and I'm a complete sucker for a protective hero who is completely and totally in love with the heroine from jump. His protective vibes are phenomenal." ~ After Dark Book Lovers

"In typical Score fashion, I was sucked into the story and didn't come up for air until I read the last page... at 3 in the morning. 
Plot-5/5 Characters-5/5 Heat-5/5 Writing style-5/5 Overall-5/5" ~ Amity Book Blog

"This is a story that you will be unable to put down, you will need to be a voyeur to their lives. And some of the things you will see, to say there are steamy parts would be an understatement, but in true Lucy fashion their relationship is as much of a character in this story as they are." 
~ Sandizzle Reads

"This is a well-written tale which is filled with secrets, danger, suspense, mystery, witty banter, emotions, family, friendships, and is a humorous and steamy read." 
~ Wendy's Book Blog

"The author is an excellent storyteller and I felt like I was there on the island with them. The scenery and the secondary characters were all impeccable."
