Book review of Forever & Always (The Ever Trilogy #1) by Jasinda Wilder

 
Ever,

These letters are often all that get me through week to week. Even if it’s just random stuff, nothing important, they’re important to me. Gramps is great, and I love working on the ranch. But…I’m lonely. I feel disconnected, like I’m no one, like I don’t belong anywhere. Like I’m just here until something else happens. I don’t even know what I want with my future. But your letters, they make me feel connected to something, to someone. I had a crush on you, when we first met. I thought you were beautiful. So beautiful. It was hard to think of anything else. Then camp ended and we never got together, and now all I have of you is these letters. S**t. I just told you I have a crush on you. HAD. Had a crush. Not sure what is anymore. A letter-crush? A literary love? That’s stupid. Sorry. I just have this rule with myself that I never throw away what I write and I always send it, so hopefully this doesn’t weird you out too much. I had a dream about you too. Same kind of thing. Us, in the darkness, together. Just us. And it was like you said, a memory turned into a dream, but a memory of something that’s never happened, but in the dream it felt so real, and it was more, I don’t even know, more RIGHT than anything I’ve ever felt, in life or in dreams. I wonder what it means that we both had the same dream about each other. Maybe nothing, maybe everything. You tell me.

Cade,

We’re pen pals. Maybe that’s all we’ll ever be. I don’t know. If we met IRL (in real life, in case you’re not familiar with the term) what would happen? And just FYI, the term you used, a literary love? It was beautiful. So beautiful. That term means something, between us now. We are literary loves. Lovers? I do love you, in some strange way. Knowing about you, in these letters, knowing your hurt and your joys, it means something so important to me, that I just can’t describe. I need your art, and your letters, and your literary love. If we never have anything else between us, I need this. I do. Maybe this letter will only complicate things, but like you I have a rule that I never erase or throw away what I’ve written and I always send it, no matter what I write in the letter. 

Your literary love,

Ever

Holy emotional roller coaster.... Okay I need to start from the beginning. I adored this book! It took me from YA to NA in the same story which was really nice. So much of it was beautifully written and I loved reading the letters. Both characters lived through dark situations at very young ages and this book had me feeling. 

BUT THAT ENDING THOUGH!

I don't even know. Like, I want to throw things. My heart can't handle this!!! I loved the story but I really can't handle anymore of the BS that is to come. Therefore I will not be reading the next book.

I've read way too many reviews and know what happens next and NOPE. No thank you. I hate to say that I don't recommend this one because it really was a beautiful story 98% of the way through. Call me an asshole but I can't get past that ending. I also most definitely can't get passed what I know is happening in this series. It basically went from beautiful story to awful soap opera filled with jealous, cheating, selfish characters.


 I don't want that to come off wrong because I LOVE drama (but of the right kind). I can't get into details because I don't want to spoil it. I feel bad because I read the first couple of chapters of the second book and I MAY be judging this book a little on behalf of the next, but after reading those things I can't set my mind aside to say good things.
