My Rating: 5.0/5.0
“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.
Words cannot describe just how much I loved this book! It was insane, I literally couldn’t put it down!
Forever Innocent is one of those books that makes you wish they ended up together no matter what happened…LIFE WOULD NOT BE COMPLETE WITHOUT CORABELLA AND GAVIN TOGETHER!
I cried so many times in Forever Innocent. I am now an emotional wreck!
The jist of the story is;
Corabella and Gavin have known each other since they were babies, they lived next door to each other their entire life.
When they where teens, they decided to turn their friendship into something more. Corabella ended up pregnant, but Gavin stayed with her and they planned to get married.
The baby, Finn, came early by two months. He was fine, until they discovered a heart defect. Finn lasted seven days before it was time to turn off the machine that kept him alive.
Gavin stormed out of the funeral and Corabella didn’t see him for four years. During those four years, both of them did things they shouldn’t. But they found each other in a university, studying astronomy.
When Gavin was thinking about Finn and how he would never be a father to him….THE FEELS. RIGHT IN THE GUT. I’m not ashamed to say that I cried. Out loud. Not like, one single tear sweeping prettily down my cheek. I’m talking snotty nose, tissues, and chocolate.
I thought that Forever Innocent was written beautifully and after reading about the author, I realised that something similar happened to her in her life.
Overall, please, please read Forever Innocent. It’s really NOT like all of those NA’s out there. You can feel the magic in this book. Whatever genre you like, pick this book up. You won’t regret it.
