Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.
From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience. Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover.
He was my soulmate.
We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.
Until he changed.
And I believed I was no longer good enough.
Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.
And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.
Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.
But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.
I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?

Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

A throat clearing alerts me to my brother’s presence. My eyes fly to the door, and Ryan is there, lounging against the wall, gaze narrowed as he watches us.
“Morning,” I croak, wincing at how hoarse my voice sounds.
“What the hell’s going on, Gabby? And why is Slate in your bed?”
“Technically, he’s not,” I say, unsuccessfully attempting to extricate myself from his grip.“He’s on top of my bed.”
At that moment, Slater, very unhelpfully, decides to nuzzle into my neck. A satisfied moan slips from his lips, and he blatantly inhales, rubbing his nose in my hair. “Mmm,you smell good,” he murmurs in a sleep-laced tone, pressing his morning wood against my ass. I can’t stop the whimper that escapes my mouth in time, and Ryan turns a very unflattering shade of red. If his jaw clenches any tighter, he’ll give himself lockjaw.
“This is not what it looks like,” I rush to assure him before he loses it.“And nothing happened, so there’s no need to go apeshit on Slate.”
“Someone better start explaining,” Ryan grumbles, and Slater stills behind me, slowly coming to.
“Ryan, dude. Stop freaking out,” Slater says after a tense minute of silence, his voice drenched with sleep.“I was only consoling Belle. That’s it. No need to look at me like you want to rip my head from my body.”
“That’s not the only part of your anatomy I’d like to dismantle right now,” my brother growls, slanting thunderous looks in Slater’s direction.
“Seriously, chill, bro.” Slater scoots away from me, and I instantly feel cold. I lie flat on my back as he swings his legs out the other side of the bed. Resting his elbows on his knees, he yawns. Thank God, he’s wearing a tank and sweats and that he’s hiding the evidence of his arousal until he’s gotten himself under control. The last thing I need is Ryan jumping to conclusions.

|✔✖ My Review Check List ✖✔AKA significant signs for a good book
Here ? When Forever Changes by Siobhan Davis
– (NOT WANTING TO PUT THE BOOK DOWN – WHICH INCLUDES CARRYING AN E-BOOK READER LITERALLY EVERYWHERE I GO, ALLNIGHT READING SESSIONS AND SNEAKING OUT OR IN PLACES INCLUDING TOILETS TO READ A FEW PAGES)
✔ – that’s a yes
– (TALKING WITH YOUR BOOK – NOMATTER WHERE YOU ARE AND WHO IS WATCHING YOU)
✔ – you do not want to know what I looked like while reading
– (CRYING AND/OR LAUGHING – -OUT LOUD- NOMATTER WHERE YOU ARE)
✔ – another yes – and a lot more – but I will get to that in my Esscense of this book.
– (THE INTENSE FEELING OF WANTING TO PUNCH OR HUG A VIRTUAL CHARACTER IN REAL LIFE)
✔ – PUNCHING – yeah that was on my mind mostly
– (REMEMBERING THE PLOT/ THE AUTHOR / THINGS AND/OR CONVERTING CONTENT TO YOUR REAL LIFE)
✔ – OH YES believe me that author is now on my list … on the list of authors to be very careful when starting a book. As she draws you in – keeps you there only to torture you with well developed stories and real characters. Don’t worry – Dear Author you have famous company on that list … Colleen Hoover, Jojo Moyes, Katy Evans, etc. ….. so actually almost all of my favorite authors are there. SO yes it is not a bad place to be but its also def. not the place for fluffy readings….
My Essence ?
Honestly ? I had no idea what I would be getting myself into when I agreed to read this book. I could give you a book to compare that feeling but to many people would directly know where the plot is heading so I refrain from that – actually it would be two books that I am thinking of now …
I already read two books of this author and both were solid 5 star reads so I think it is safe to say that I assumed that this book two would be a SOLID star read …
And when I reached a certain point where I found myself thinking – wow the plot never gave any indication that this would happen I actually went back to check the plot. While rereading I thought what a clever writing that Blurb was – as suddenly anything in there could also be read and understood in a way that it DID actually meet the story only I would have never understood it in that way before.
Now – after I finished the book I am at a loss – I thought I had an idea what this was about when I read the Blurb but no … this book is like the best and the worst of all the well-known books of the last years out there in that genre….
And with “worst” I do not mean writing style or anything but the PLOT itself and I also do not mean it …. Gosh – Well how do I explain it ….actually “worst” is probably the wrong word – its more the worse that you use if you ask someone how he is feeling …
I had several stages during reading so without going into the spoiler section let me describe it like :
A love story that goes wrong – you connect to the characters and you start to like them but already from the Blurb you know something is going to happen. The words in the book show you a certain direction but ONE line showed me something else because I had an experience in that area from another book.
Still the obvious signs made me dislike the male lead Dylan – but that was obviously what the author wanted. So I started to look between the lines and I started noticing where this is going – and from there on it was like a train wreck waiting to happen – like watching the movie Titanic.
I knew what was happening – I was hoping – I was begging – I was cursing – I was hating – oh yeah and lets not forget the crying …. And during all that time I wanted to stop reading because If I did not read it I wouldn’t know if I was right and it would be like nothing happened. But did I stop ? obviously not….
If I would have a complain about this book than it would be – that this book felt to real. I bet you would never have guessed that I was ever going to write a line like that. Yeah me neither ….
Life itself is messy and this plot is not different. Lines were blurred in that plot – lines that are hard limits to me and forced me to stop several books in the past but here ? Here they felt more gray then black because I somehow knew (not going into that) ……
The question I asked myself the most was “why did nobody notice” but the characters themselves asked that question too – that took my anger and it felt like I was wondering alongside the characters – kind of lost….
The plot feels like two stories woven into each other so they fit perfectly like a glove. But my love for this plot is only within one string of this story. One plot string I would have loved to rewrite because ….. (insert curse word) I needed it to be different. And the other I would have probably never finished reading because of the hard limit. But it is what it is – this plot feels real and I can not punish it for that – just because I would have liked a fairytale.
I know I am rambling and this review has no structure but to me it is honestly just like that book left me – ALL OVER THE PLACE….
So what is this book. As it ticked of all the right places in my Review Check list – it should be a 5 star read and I will rate it as such but still something in the back of my mind will remain. Which again will ensure that I will keep a close Eye on this authors next books. So in total this author did everything right ….
