Title: Forever Right Now
Author: Emma Scott
Rating: 

Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl... 

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again. 

When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.

    

Darlene is a recovering addict, and she moves to a new city to start fresh. She never expected to meet her hot neighbor who has a baby girl. These two both know that starting anything isn't a good idea, so they stay friends, sorta. But when things start to come to light neither one of them is prepared for the fallout. 

This book was so very good. It totally blew me away. I loved the characters, and I the whole story line as well. It was a new type of story to me, and I just adored it. I loved the slow burn romance to it, and I enjoyed how both of these characters were trying to do the right thing. 

I look forward to reading more from this author now.

  1. I like a good slow-burn romance myself and you have me curious about it being a "new type of story" for you. :) Nice review!
