The much-anticipated sequel to the Top 10 bestselling new adult romance Forever Innocent.

“How do I tell the woman I love that I fathered a son with a prostitute?”

After four long years of separation, Gavin has finally reunited with his childhood love Corabelle. She’s forgiven him for leaving her during the funeral of their seven-day-old baby, and also for where he ended up — in Mexico to get a vasectomy.

But a message from Rosa, a prostitute he met the day of his surgery, brings his life to a crashing halt. She claims Gavin has fathered a son, now three years old and living with her cousin in Ensenada. He doesn’t know if he can trust Rosa, who never mentioned the boy before, or if his delicate reconciliation with Corabelle can withstand the shock if it is true.

Corabelle believes their future together is the right thing despite their past. But when she learns of this other child, the one thing she lost long ago and might never have again with Gavin, Corabelle’s faith that her life will ever follow her old dream is shattered. To make things right for Gavin and his son, she just might have to let go of the only person she always believed would be her forever love.

My Review:

This book was very unexpected, I really liked the first book and I was excited to read it after finding out that there was going to be a continuation of the first novel. From the characters, to the plot, Deanna Roy did a good job once again bringing an interesting yet realistic story. Forever Loved picks up right where we are left of in Forever Innocent, Corabelle is in the hospital yet again after attempting suicide, and Gavin is right there to take care of her. But not everyone is happy, Corabelle's parents are outraged at Gavin and want him away from their daughter. Not having the best relationship in the past, Corabelle's father still hasn't fully forgiven Gavin for leaving his daughter after the death of their newborn baby. Now since they're together, Gavin has to prove himself worthy of Corabelle's love and prove that he is going to be there for her no matter what. But things don't always end up going the way they are planned, after receiving a message from Rosa, a prostitute that he met while he was in Mexico. She claims Gavin is the father of her son and that he needs to help her get him back. Now the real story begins with Gavin struggling to keep his relationship with Corabelle and his deciding of whether the son that Rosa claims is his will be part of his life or not. 

I really enjoyed reading this book, Deanna Roy added different elements to the story to keep one reading until the very end. It's intriguing and I found myself torned with Corabelle's decisions sometimes. She clearly has been through a lot, but attempting suicide might not have been the best way to solve her problems. In contrast, Gavin tries to make things better for them as a couple, and he was the one character that I really liked in the book. The whole plot seems to be more about his life and what he does, that we don't see a lot Corabelle. Overall, the plot was great, and the writing flowed very well. I wasn't expecting the ending to end the way it did, and I'm still having mixed feelings about it. But I recommend everyone to read both books, they deal with a lot of topics that are well introduced and explained that makes them good young adult novels.
