"Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again."
Corabelle doesn’t feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.
Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.
When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she’ll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.
Forever Innocent wasn't at all what I thought it was going to be. It starts with Corabelle is going to college after having to deal with a whole lot of stuff in her past. But during one of her classes in walks one problem of her past, Gavin, the boy who left her after their baby died.
Gavin hasn't really been living these past four years until he sees Corabelle again. He realizes he is happiest with her, and he wants to be with her again. But she isn't so sure that is a good idea. It's very painful for them to be together again, but it also makes them happy too.
This book was really sad at times. I felt bad for both of these two young people to have to go through this. But I also didn't really like either of them. I understood why they did the things they did, but I still didn't really like either of them very much. The book was over all okay, the writing was good. And the author did a good job at describing the pain of losing a child, so that made it much more real. But the main characters just frustrated me through out most of the story. So I probably won't be reading the next one, but this wasn't a bad read it was interesting.
