This book, oh gosh I was on the edge of my seat, keeping a Kleenex next to my eyes for most of this book, especially the first half. It was like I wanted to read fast to find out what happens, yet, I wanted to stop and skip to the end. (please do not do this, you would completely miss out). Rogan & Harper capture my heart and I road along this journey with these characters, effortlessly. This author tells this story in alternating POV and switches from Past to Present, every other chapter. It simply flows so dang smoothly, its flawless. Im excited to see what is next up for the Knightly brothers

    That Forever Girl was about two people who may have loved each other too much. So much that they couldn't help but hurt each other. So much that it drew out the most immature impulses they ever had. Was it fun to watch? You bet your ass it was!Rogan and Harper were best friends since sixth grade.

So much that they couldn't help but hurt each other. So much that it drew out the most immature impulses they ever had. Was it fun to watch? You bet your ass it was!Rogan and Harper were best friends since sixth grade. In their teens, they both couldn't understand what had changed but they wanted each other. They just didn't share it. There were awkward moments, insecurities and doubts, until one day and one kiss changed everything. They were in love and it was forever... until it wasn't. When tragedy befalls this couple, love isn't enough to erase bitterness and resentment and after ugly things are said, these two are separated by time and distance. Seven years later, they're both home and being in the same small town is difficult to say the least. Not only do they have to concentrate in order to avoid the other, his family and the entire town are meddling, trying to get these lovebirds back together. Their forever kind of love was obvious to everyone... just not to them. "Honestly, I feel like our love story could easily be a Lovemark movie.""Really?" Sally asks. "Do tell.""It checks all the boxes. High school sweethearts, small-town romance with quirky side characters, a bit of a mystery, with a whole lot of heartache. Oh, and don't forget a classic second-chance romance. Maybe a little enemies to lovers snuck in there." ^^^^^^ That sums it up pretty nicely. The Knightly brothers are HILARIOUS!! They were the absolute highlight of this story. I couldn't get enough of their banter and group message texts. I'm telling you, Meghan Quinn really knows when and how to bring the humor. Rogan was extremely cold for so long, but with flashes to the past, the author made me not only understand where his iciness came from, but to sympathize with this character. Once I was able to see the big picture... SWOONS!! Loved me some Rogan. I'm a little surprised so little time was spent on him and Harper as a couple. There was a lot of history and a lot of present fighting and I especially enjoyed the little twist that explained A LOT, but I was hoping for more of them together as a unit. Ah well, I still loved this. Blog | FB | Twitter | IG | Tumblr | Pinterest | BookBub

I am not at all surprised at just how fantastic ”THAT FOREVER GIRL” ended up being, and I can’t wait to see what the author has in store for the remaining Knightly brothers. If ”friends-to-lovers”, “enemies-to-lovers” and “second-chance-romance” are some of your favorite tropes as they are mine, then you are in for a real treat with Rogan and Harper’s story! Rogue is the second oldest and hottest Knightly brother, but he’s also known as the broody and closed-off Knightly. He once had everything in the palm of his hands and on one fateful night, he lost it all. Seven years later, the woman who had his heart since he was a young boy has come back to Port Snow and no matter how hard he tries to fight his feelings, fate and true love have other plans in store for Rogue and Harper. Rogan tore Harper’s heart to shreds and caused her to lose confidence in herself. Will she be able to let go of the pain from the past to move on to the possibility of an even greater love with the only man who’s ever truly owned her heart?I can’t even begin to express just how much I loved Rogan and Harper’s journey. Their story is told through alternating POV’s, switching from past to present every other chapter, but it’s written so fluidly that I found the plot development to be flawless.

    4 1/2 "2nd chance" Stars! That Forever Girl was a great installment to the Getting Lucky series! I really liked the way Ms. Quinn went back and forth between the past and the present to let Rogan and Harper's story gradually unfold. It felt like a very natural way to share the information with the reader and had an easy flow. It also made it more heartbreaking at times to go from a chapter where they were young and happily in love to a chapter where they weren't even speaking. It really made th 4 1/2 "2nd chance" Stars!

It also made it more heartbreaking at times to go from a chapter where they were young and happily in love to a chapter where they weren't even speaking. It really made the harshness of their current reality stand out. Let me just say....Meghan Quinn, you are killin' me with Rogan! Seriously, I love how you wrote him....so clever. He's the absolute man you can't help but dislike for his treatment of the girl through a good portion of the story but when all the pieces start coming together, you understand him better and can embrace his surly character a little more. Then when his secrets surface and you know what he's really been up to....be still my heart! By the end of the book, I was sold....all in...Team Rogan.Then there is our leading lady, Harper. She mysteriously appears back in Port Snow. Her reasons for moving back are unclear but it's evident that she is hiding something. It's also quite obvious that she's uncomfortable being around Rogan and that she has unrequited feelings where he's concerned. Rogan doesn't hide his displeasure that Harper is back in town either and initially tries to avoid interacting with her as much as possible. Unfortunately for both of them, everyone else in town has other plans and tries to throw them together as much as possible, especially Rogan's family.I think it's safe to say that I love the Knightly family. One of my favorite parts in the book is the texting banter between the brothers - - it's absolutely hilarious and when you throw their sister in there for good measure, it's even better. I'm totally hooked on Port Snow and this series! I can't wait to see who gets their story next!Thank you to NetGalley and Montlake Romance for this ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    An incredible emotional story and one of my favorites by Meghan Quinn. The heartache of both Harper and Rogan kept me on the edge of tears for the first part of the story. Then I was cheering for them! I loved how Quinn did the flashback chapters, slowly revealing the shocker of what actually drove them apart. I am so in love with this town and the people in it!!

I know this must be fun for you, acting like we’re great friends, but this hurts for me. So let’s just be cordial and get through these next few weeks, okay?” When I read the blurb I thought the book would be about getting her back but it's pushing away then trying to get her back after around 55% mark, it wasn't soon enough for me.I found some of the banter between the Hero and heroine childish later on.There are references to the couple in book 1 and other characters are developed for future books. HEA. If you trust him. I really didn't like it.ARC.

    DNF 57% I’m going to have to call it quits with this one. I was so ready for Rogan’s story after it was hinted at during That Second Chance. I was so excited for a second chance romance with this town as an adorable background. However, I didn't get A N Y of that here. I was fed up with two things, the flashbacks and the main characters. The flashbacks seriously made me feel like we were reading two stories in one. I would have been fine with just a short summary of why they broke up.

Maybe this was supposed to provide more angst and make us think that they were meant to be. I don't know but it really didn't work for me. As far as the characters go, I really tried okay! I tried to give these two characters the benefit of the doubt and like them. They were, however, some of the most annoying characters I had the chance to read about. I’m not talking about their characters during the flashback. Nope, I’m talking about them as freaking grown ass adults. They bickered and honestly went out of their way to make the other miserable. "If we’re going to live here, I’m going to make sure he regrets ever making me love him."I’m sorry what? There is no way that I can sit and read the rest of this. After all of this, he decides that he’s going to try and win her back. NOPE. I’ll seriously just wait for another Knightly brother to find love. This one is not for me. ✨I received an ARC via NetGalley for an honest review. Quote was taken from an ARC and is subject to change upon publication.Blog | Instagram | Twitter

    „If there’s one thing I know for sure about my life, it’s that you’ll be in it.”Port Snow and Knightly brothers completely stole my heart. In That Forever Girl Meghan Quinn took me on an emotional journey paved with heartbreak, regrets, disappointment and longing. But she also showed me the magic of feelings and gave me hope, because Harper and Rogan’s story is the proof that great love deserves a second chance.

But she also showed me the magic of feelings and gave me hope, because Harper and Rogan’s story is the proof that great love deserves a second chance. And all that takes place in one of the most wonderful locations ever described- picturesque town on the Maine coast. I’m totally enchanted with this place and Rogan and Harper’s love story!I like how Meghan Quinn turned friends-to-lovers story into second chance romance. The past interweaves with the present and thanks to that we can fully experience this incredible tale- from just a friendship, the first kiss, plans for the future, and an awful tragedy that drifted Harper and Rogan apart to the big comeback and efforts to get another chance. There were moments that melted my heart, but also those that made me sad. I loved Rogan, despite that he behaved like a jerk for the good part of this story. When all the pieces of puzzle came together, I just swooned! I loved Harper for finding content in common things- she wasn’t career driven nor money hungry. To feel fulfilled, she just needed a man she loved by her side and kids. Oh, and the power to forgive, because it’s obvious that she already found the man of her dreams ;)That Forever Girl is a heartwarming and charming small town story. It captivates, makes you swoon and makes you laugh. The Knightly clan is a family you would love to be a part of and Port Snow residents will make you want to move there. I’m delighted with this book and Meghan’s writing skills, because when I was reading this story, I felt like a bystander of events. Dear Mrs. Quinn- give me another Knighly brother, please! I want to stay in Port Snow forever!*ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

The flashback chapter version of him, yes, but the present day, version? No way. I liked Harper right from the start, and I was glad when Rogan finally pulled his head from his hiney and got with the program. I love how there is so much history and backstory involved. It makes the present day events and ownerships so much more meaningful. I picked up on a few things, and was right in my assumptions by the end, including who the mystery MFG was. I loved living this story with these characters, watching them learn who they are now, and how much potential there is to come. I thought there wasn't going to be a proper resolution for their past, but that was done nicely as well. I think there is also set up for at least one of the remaining, brothers, possibly both, and I'm really keen to get their stories as well.As always in my experience with a Meghan Quinn book, this was a really easy and addicting read. Definitely recommend, and bring on the rest!Review also on my blog - That Forever Girl by Meghan Quinn Follow me on:FacebookTwitterInstagram

I loved the sweetness of childhood friendship turned love, broken lovers trying to exist within the same town after a bad break up, and the depiction of small town folks bringing lovers back to each other. I was completely surprised by the emotional twists and turns that both characters take and I felt in the moment with them as they went through the journey. I look forward to reading about the other brothers in this family and returning to Port Snow for more emotional journeys. This specific video review will be included in the August 2019 wrap-up.

In book one of this delightful series, we get to know a little about the Knightly brothers, but Roger Knightly was the most aloof. He was the broody one of the bunch and all the while I kept thinking...why? What happened to him to be so jaded and cynical? Well, now I know and totally understand. At a young age he and Harper had their lives all mapped out. A happily ever after was inevitable with those two. Even the town knew it. What started as a friendship became SO MUCH MORE as they matured and it was something only imagined by some. It truly was a beautiful thing they had. But one night changed it all and Rogen didn’t handle it well. He pushed Harper and everyone away. Now that he’s older and had everything he could ever want, he’s still so lonely. So Harper returning to town is his second chance. A chance to make things right and get back on track with that fairytale life they planned for all those years ago. I loved the detailed transformation that I could practically see. The friction between them in the beginning as then it was like a flower blooming. I could see Rogan change before my very eyes. Harper truly was his missing piece and once the puzzle was while again, he became the man he was always meant to be. This series truly is wonderful. Their like Hallmark movies in paper [or digital if you read it in ebook]. I’ve loved every moment I’ve spend with the Knightly family and their adorable little town of Port Snow. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for Reid and Brig.

This book focuses on Rogan. The banter between the brothers was top notch as always! The family members and the town were back to their usual meddling! This is a dual point of view, second chance trope with chapters in both past and present. Rogan and Harper were high school sweethearts, engaged, when he broke off their relationship. There is a little bit of a mystery to why this is, and that all comes out in the past chapters. I will say the reveal was definitely unexpected! Harper moves back to Port Snow, and so there’s an unknown reason as to why Harper is all of a sudden back in town. These two were incredible together, and I really loved their past the most. I do wish there were more chapters with them back together in the end. But, I’m hoping we’ll see a lot more of them in Brig’s and Reid’s book. So looking forward to the next books in this series! * ARC provided by NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

    Ah another Knightly brother. I’m really liking all of the brothers, their group texts are pretty entertaining. I do have to say that it took me a minute to not want to junk punch Rogan. For a hot minute there, he was kinda being a dick to Harper when she came back to town. There was a lot of guilt going around and he finally pulled his head outta his booty so that helped. Overall it’s a great second chance and it got me a wee bit emotional a time or two.

I was particularly interested to learn more about Rogan Knightly because he has such a mysterious past and now that his ex was back in town, I needed to know what it was that broke them apart in the first place and if somehow they would be able to find their way back to one another again.Harper Sanders was Rogan Knightly's forever girl and he planned on spending the rest of his life with her—until one night forever changed both of their lives and tore these two childhood lovers apart. Now seven years later, Harper has returned to Port Snow for a fresh start. But moving on from the past is gonna be harder than she thinks, especially since she keeps running into Rogan all around town. Rogan is hell bent on making up for his wrongs of the past and proving to Harper that he can be that person she can lean on again. Can these find a way to move on from the past or will the betrayal of love prove to be too hard to move on from?MY OVER DRAMATIC ASS AFTER FINISHING THIS BOOKThe Getting Lucky series is gearing up to be my new favorite series by Meghan Quinn and after finishing That Forever Girl, I might even say that I'm now a little obsessed with the series. I loved being back in Port Snow with all the gossipy townspeople and the Knightly clan. Family and community plays such a big role and it adds this heartwarming feeling which is one of the reasons why I enjoy this series so much. I literally just wanted to jump into my car and drive up north to one of these small town by the seaside to experience it myself. The Knightly siblings are just as entertaining in this book as they were in the previous books, maybe even more so in this book because they have no problem with meddling in Rogan's love life as they too wanted to see him back together again with Harper. I was cracking the fuck up with their group chats as the other siblings tried giving Rogan advice on how to win Harper back and it was just a hilarious mess.Rogan is a dick with a capital D-I-C-K. He's really hard, like really, hard to love at first because he's such an incredible grump and he doesn't care how anyone perceives him. Even though the way he treated Harper in the past was wrong, I think Rogan had to go through that pain by himself in order to find himself again or he might've resented Harper more. He managed to make something of himself and became someone that Harper could truly depend on no matter what. Harper on the other hand is a complete sweetheart but she also has no problem giving it back to Rogan when he gets her riled up. Harper as well has to do some soul searching in this book as she tries to figure out her purpose in life and how she can let Rogan in again without losing her whole self like she did last time. THIS ROMANCE IS MY KINK! Childhood friends turned lovers who then have a falling out which leads to a second-chance at love, like I COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR A BETTER FORMULA FOR A ROMANCE! This story alternates between chapters from the past and the present and we get to see where Rogan and Harper's relationship started and how their feelings for one another developed into something more and how it also fell apart. What I really loved about this romance was how we got to see two different sides of it; in the chapters set in the past, we get a more sweeter romance and with the chapters set in the present, we get a ton of angst and we're just rooting for Rogan and Harper to work it out so things can go back to being sweet. So if you love small town romances, romances with tight-knit families, romances with angst, ROMANCES WHERE THE HERO DOES WHATEVER IT TAKES TO WIN BACK THE GIRL then That Forever Girl might just be the perfect book for you so read it!

The kind of one that ruined them for other people. But how the two star crossed lovers ended being strangers? You’re going to find out in That Forever Girl. From the beginning my heart cracked a little, just reading about how sometimes love can’t solve anything and how you need sometimes more time to realize the weight of your decisions and their consequences.After this brutal and very painful breakup, Rogan tried to move on, becoming that successful businessman back home, surrounded by his family. Until the moment she came back into his life and torturing him, and especially bringing all that connection to the surface but not really acting in the best ways. Rogan was definitely a jerk with her, thinking one thing and acting the opposite. Anytime just to hurt him but mostly getting any reaction from her.Harper tried so hard not to give him any attention. She could stand on her own and wasn’t letting him ruining her life. Because one thing for sure, when he pusher her, she pushed harder giving him his run for his money, I totally adored it. How to move on when you come back to the small town who saw you being that couple, until Rohan’s anger and resentment blew everything away, and the guilt of being somehow responsible for it.I appreciated their banter, from painful to awkward but still feeling the sparks, that intense connection and love they shared but were deep down buried. Their story moved me, watching them not going back to what they had but finally moving forward and not keeping things in the past. I adored reading again about this so endearing and charming family, who loved meddling a little bit always acting with the best interest at heart, to put in your place when needed, It took me a little time to really get into the story but it was so worth it! An emotional journey, showing that love takes time, work and understanding. A second chance romance that totally melt my heart along the way. Damn the Knightly brothers...

I know this must be fun for you, acting like we’re great friends, but this hurts for me. So let’s just be cordial and get through these next few weeks, okay?” When I read the blurb I thought the book would be about getting her back but it's pushing away then trying to get her back after around 55% mark, it wasn't soon enough for me.I found some of the banter between the Hero and heroine childish later on.There are references to the couple in book 1 and other characters are developed for future books. HEA. If you trust him.ARC.

    Oh, my heart! Gah, this was such an amazingly beautiful journey between these two. I don't know how many times I cried and laughed. It's very heartwarming.Harper and Rogan were best friends, that turned to lovers. They were addicted to each other and felt that no one else could ever come between them. But of course, words are thrown, and mistakes are made. That sent them in opposite directions. I truly felt Harper's emotions throughout this story, as well as Rogan's. How does Quinn do this?

It's like she has this magic way of weaving a story.

I don't even have to know what it's about. I love this town and these characters she's created. It's like The Notebook 2.0.Overall, of course, Five Boundless Stars

The Knightly brothers are quickly becoming my favourites of Meghan's men, with every book in the Getting Lucky Series we learn more and I am addicted to all things Knightly!Rogan and Harper's story is a true second chance romance, they grew up together as best friends and ended up as high school sweethearts. College happened and one night changes their whole relationship and both their worlds fall apart. The set up of the book flicks back and forth between past and present to map out Harper and Rogan's relationship. Starting from their friendship as preteens, you can see how they have reached the position they are in at present, unable to be around each other. Meghan sets up the distinction between past and present clearly, with chapter headings so you don't get lost in the differing timelines. As you read through their past relationship you cannot doubt that Rogan and Harper are it for each other, yet you wonder what happened to rip them both apart.In the present we have a very different Rogan and Harper, 7 years have passed since they last saw each other and things are tense. It's clear there are unresolved feelings yet an attraction that has only increased with time too. I don't mind an asshole Hero in a book and Rogan indeed acts like a dick towards Harper, while his brothers cringe watching their him dig a deeper hole for himself. Did I think Rogan was an douche - yes, there is no excuse for his rudeness; that said I think it's a totally realistic behaviour for both Rogan and Harper when they have the history they have with each other and at this point in the story we have no clue about what happened between them. Harper is a lovable heroine, a woman not sure who she is and returns home to figure it all out not expecting to come face to face with Rogan where he strips her defences leaving her open to all the emotions she has been trying to hold down.I don't want to go too much into this story and there are a lot of elements at play, from a childhood romance mystery, self discovery, overcoming life changing events and the healing of friendship and love. Meghan writes the Knightly brothers banter brilliantly, packing so much character into each it's clear how different their personalities are. I said it when reading Griffin's book that Reid is the Knightly man for me and I am sticking to it! When Rogan gets his butt in gear and finally decides to own his feelings for Harper the book gets a different energy, it lifts and Rogan brings out his playful side. I mean I loved Broody Rogan but playful, flirtatious Rogan is lickable!That Forever girl was such a fabulous read for me, Meghan has built this town and it's characters so well I can visualise it perfectly, so much so I don't want to leave the Port Snow bubble I am in when I am reading the Getting Lucky Series. I challenge anyone to read this books and not fall in love with the quaint and charming town or it's inhabitants. So why not 5 stars? For the simple reason of I just wanted a little more about the obstacles both Hero and heroine faced that brought them to where they are now. I felt it was all rounded up in the last 8 - 10% of the novel and as touching and as real as the moments were I wanted just a smidge more. The subject matters I am referring to are relevant and powerful and ones that not many authors have the confidence to write about especially Rogan's, I would have loved to explore it just a little more. That is me being SUPER fussy because this book is crazy good and I cannot tell you how much I want to read Brig and my man Reid's stories because they are so different and I know Meghan is going to slay!

What a great read this one was; I was captivated from the first chapter to the last and couldn’t put this book down. Harper Sanders is the woman who left town leaving Rogan Knightly behind, but now she’s back. Feelings will be re awakened, but the biggest question of all is whether Harper and Rogan can forgive the past and the pain it caused?Weaving both present day and the past together Meghan Quinn has given us the full story of young love and how it can become a forever love when fate gives you another chance. This was an emotional read at times and really tugged at my heartstrings, sad and yet beautiful, a story of love and hope. The chemistry between Rogan and Harper was scorching and intense. I loved the camaraderie between Rogan and his family and the mystery that is woven throughout this book. Of course it wouldn’t be a Meghan Quinn novel without humour and laughter and this just added to the overall enjoyment of the book.Rogan was such a charismatic hero that I couldn't help but fall for him. I loved how feisty and sassy Harper is; in fact I just loved everything about the characters and the story.That Forever Girl ticked all the boxes for me, it is a story of love, hope, forgiveness and was at times a bit of an emotional roller coaster and I cannot wait for the next release in the series.I received a copy of this book through the publisher via NetGalley.

I am so in love with this beautiful world and the entire Knightly family!I’m a sucker for second chance romances and absolutely loved Harper and Rogan’s story.

Yes, there is some major communication issues which led to their first relationship ending but what relationship has perfect communication? As I read more books with flashbacks, I have become a lot pickier about them. I can say I absolutely loved the ones in this story. It takes us all the way back to when Harper and Rogan were just friends and all of the moments that led to their first kiss, their plans for the future, and ultimately the end of their relationship. Watching them come back together and have to overcome their past was what second chances are made of. I quickly fell in love with the entire family in this first book and I can’t wait to watch the rest of the family get their happily ever afters. I’m, not so secretly, the most excited for Brig’s story! He’s so sappy and a true believer in love. I can’t wait to watch him get his happily ever after!Grateful to have received a complimentary ARC copy to honestly review.

    That Forever Girl is the second book in the Getting Lucky Series and it follows the story of Rogan and Harper. Once upon a time, Rogan and Harper had that once in a lifetime, life altering love. They had their who lives ahead of them and nothing could tear these two lovebirds apart. That is until tragedy strikes. All it takes is one moment. One painful moment for everything Harper and Rogan wanted to be ripped apart and turned upside down.

Once upon a time, Rogan and Harper had that once in a lifetime, life altering love. They had their who lives ahead of them and nothing could tear these two lovebirds apart. That is until tragedy strikes. All it takes is one moment. One painful moment for everything Harper and Rogan wanted to be ripped apart and turned upside down. It will be years before Harper returns to Port Snow and when she does, her return awakens something buried deep within Rogan. Try as he might, he can’t stop thinking of Harper. He’s not the same man that Harper once knew. Despite their painful past, a love like theirs refuses to be extinguished. Will Harper and Rogan grab on to the second chance life has presented them?? There’s only one way to find out….That Forever Girl is the kind of story that just grabs you from the very first page. It’s got all of my favorite troupes mixed into one heartbreaking story. We’ve got high school sweethearts whose future was ripped out from beneath them. Who are now shells of whom they once were. They take enemies to lovers to the next level. And when you add in the perfect small town, you’ve got a second chance romance that is guaranteed to put your heart through the paces. Yes, That Forever Girl has it all. It’s got drama and angst. There’s heartache and romance. There are extremely frustrating characters. That’s right, Rogan, I’m talking about you!!! In all seriousness, Rogan drove me completely and totally batty. He claimed to still be madly in love with Harper, yet he couldn’t stop being a jerk to her. And I mean, he was a total jerk. Never have I ever wanted to reach inside my kindle and slap a fictional character the way that I wanted to with Rogan. No matter how hard he tried, he just couldn’t stop messing up. It was like the second he opened his mouth, he stuck his foot in it. I honestly never thought he was going to be able to redeem himself. But, I am happy to report that Rogan totally does. When you get to the heart of his story, you can better understand his actions. I didn’t agree with his actions, but I understood them.One of things I really enjoyed about this story was the pull between Rogan and Harper. No matter how much Rogan messed up, that pull was still there. It was tangible and undeniable. I loved the banter between Rogan and Harper and really enjoyed their interactions. I loved that Harper made Rogan sweat it a bit. She didn’t just give in and forgive him. She made him work for his second chance and it was a totally satisfying thing to experience.Overall, I thought this book was a terrific read. I loved getting lost in the characters and their story. And I think it was a perfect addition to the Getting Lucky Series.*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

    I knew reading the first book in this series, that Rogan’s tale was going to hurt, and it did. He’s a young man, making a name for himself towards a football career when one night things change dramatically. His world is turned upside down and unfortunately he pushes away the one person he needs the most. Seven years down the track, he is still trying to prove to himself that he can have a full filling life after football when Harper comes home for good.

He’s a young man, making a name for himself towards a football career when one night things change dramatically. His world is turned upside down and unfortunately he pushes away the one person he needs the most. Seven years down the track, he is still trying to prove to himself that he can have a full filling life after football when Harper comes home for good. She herself is not only dealing with having to see her ex fiancé around town, but needing to find solace in her familiar surroundings and recover from a nasty relationship of two years. It’s not until Rogan runs into Harper a few times around town that he feels more hope than he’d ever thought possible. Rogan is the gruff brooding male that is broken and suffering a few wounds. I loved him! You could feel deep down his anguish and having the flashbacks gave you another aspect of his personality. Once he realized what he had been working towards all along over the last seven years, he didn’t take his time to steer his energy into winning back Harper as his Forever Girl. Harper wasn’t as quick to forget how much heartache they both endured back in college and she gave him a run for his money. She had a lot of personal growth in this book, more so than Rogan, and she needed reassurance that it wouldn’t happen again. I loved her vulnerability and sensitivity she displayed. I think if she didn’t have the emotions as she did, their circumstance would have hardened her to someone totally different.I also want to add how much the Knightly family dynamics play into these books. The brothers banter is a treasure and their sister Jen whips them up too. There are still the two younger brothers books to come and these boys need some maturity before they can find their HEA’s but I’m so keen to read their stories.
