(Forever Book 1)
(Forever Book 1)
by Elise Sax
When Tess's mother abandons her during her senior year at high school, she must find a way to keep the secret and survive until graduation. She's surprised when Cruz, her crush and an aspiring model, moves in to help. Tess has dreams of studying in Paris, France and becoming a writer ... impossible dreams without money or family. But as Tess and Cruz's relationship grows closer, Cruz will do anything to make sure Tess's dreams come true. But at what price?
Forever Now is the first book in the Forever young adult/new adult trilogy about finding love, living dreams, and overcoming great odds.
Forever begins now.
I don’t know why I didn’t notice him before because he was the best looking boy I had ever seen. Not really a boy. A man. Maybe nineteen, I figured. He had dark hair and eyes but light skin, and he was tall and muscular. He was beautiful, like a model, shining under the lights.
He shook my mother’s hand, and the three of them walked on the tiled floor further into the house without saying a word to me.
There. That’s the moment my life changed. No, I didn’t realize it, yet. I didn’t know that anything special had happened. I certainly didn’t know that Cruz would save my life, and I would save his - at least for a while. That we would love each other and our love would be dangerous.
Praise for the Book
"The story is incredibly believable and heart wrenching, but I could definitely see a young woman going through similar struggles. These two characters will be seen again in the next book of the series. I do believe the young adult reader, early teens, would enjoy this story." ~ Anima M. Giraldez
"My Niece and I conversed for days about Forever Now. She has deemed it her GOAT (Greatest of All Time).This book is a gem for all ages. We are both eagerly anticipating the remainder of the story. Awesome start to a great series." ~ ViviBee
"I was completely blown away. I am sucked into this story. It hit home because I have known kids who have been dealt bad hands in life. It was fantastic, very well written. I can't wait until the next book in the series." ~ Amy
"This book was amazingly heartbreaking and wonderful all at once. Tess has a vile mother. Cruz steps in like a knight in tarnished armor and helps her survive when her mother abandons her. Young love grows and in the end Cruz encourages Tess to follow her dreams. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for the young lovers." ~ readaholic
