Blog Tour Review: Forever Innocent by Deanna Roy & Tour Giveaway! #Giveaway #Review


Forever Innocent by Deanna Roy
Publication date: October 1st 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance

Synopsis:
“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.

MY REVIEW

I absolutely loved Forever Innocent! I loved the characters! I loved the story! I just absolutely loved all of it! :D While there were times where the characters didn't do the things I wanted them to do, I found their reactions so realistic and so consistent with what I knew about them, that I completely understood their actions, and I loved that!

I thought that Forever Innocent was a wonderful story!!!! I was actually sad when I got to the end because I wanted more Corabelle and Gavin, so I was thrilled (and even did an inner fist bump) when I clicked my kindle past the page that said "the end" and discovered that there was going to be a sequel! I already can't wait to read it!!!!!

Forever Innocent was an incredibly memorable story and I know it's going to linger with me for a long time. Corabelle and Gavin had a baby together and lost him after only seven days. It was heart-wrenching to get to experience their moments with Finn, but it was also so beautiful...and I cried more than once. This isn't just a story about two characters who love each other. It's a story about two characters with a vivid history, one that they'll never forget, but may be able to finally move past together. I thought it was a beautiful story about dealing with loss and with the reactions and consequences that come with. Seeing both Corabelle and Gavin come to terms with their loss and changed relationship was such a fantastic reading experience and I thoroughly enjoyed it. 

I find that sometimes books that begin after a relationship has already been developed can leave the reader in the dark, but that definitely wasn't the case with Forever Innocent! Deanna Roy did an amazing job at filling in Corabelle and Gavin's past, and I absolutely loved how she unveiled it all. While reading I was so desperate to finally get answers that both Gavin and Corabelle were hiding, but once Deanna Roy finally unveiled them, I couldn't believe how well she'd done it! It was perfect, and it made me feel as if I was completely inside of the situation with the characters, which was an extremely emotional experience and it was so moving!

Forever Innocent was an absolutely amazing story and I loved every single word that I read! Deanna Roy has crafted a remarkable story about love, loss, and moving forward, and I wholeheartedly recommend it! You'll be frustrated, you'll laugh, you'll cry, but above all else, this book will stick with you! I'd recommend this one to readers who love intense stories with electric chemistry between characters, love that just keeps on going, and also to any readers who don't mind a good cry every now and then. ;D
