AND THEN FOREVER BY SHIRLEY JUMP
Release Date: July 28, 2015
Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.
Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.
Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.
But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen on a hot summer night.
REVIEW: AND THEN FOREVER BY SHIRLEY JUMP
And Then Forever by Shirley Jump
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A slow start to what turned out to be a fabulous story. Darcy has always wanted someone to care enough to want to look out for her. It broke my heart that the people she should have been able to rely on let her down. And Then Forever is the story of a woman who is used to looking out for herself but secretly has always wished to matter to someone. This girl was a strong cookie. To be hurt and tossed aside so many times and manage to keep putting one foot in front of the other. That took real faith and courage. Shirley Jump, I salute you for creating a heroine that stayed strong in the face of adversity without needing to be rescued by anyone but herself. So although the hero was nice, I applaud the heroine. Received an ARC of And Then Forever in exchange for an honest review.
