Review: Forever Right Now by Emma Scott

***STANDALONE new adult romance from the author of The Butterfly Project and the Full Tilt Duet***

Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl...

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.

When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.

I've gone and done it again; fell head over heels in love with a book! It's passionate and gritty and it was simply EVERYTHING!! So many feels and emotions. Forever Right Now grabbed a hold of me from very early in and I couldn't put this one down. Devoured in one sitting. Just wow, wow, wow!! Now I'm left kicking myself in the butt because if this book was THIS FREAKING AMAZING, I'm left wondering how amazing all her other books are that I haven't read yet. FML. Yes, this is my first Emma Scott read and I can guarantee you it won't be my last. I am addicted, there's no other way to put it- flat out addicted. There's a support group for this, right? lol

With a slow burn so tantalizing, devastating at times, yet soothing and cleansing. The story and lives of Sawyer and Darlene is not cut and dry; it's one of learning from past mistakes and horrors, letting go of the baggage and learning to grow. Life is not black and white, nor is it free of a little heartache or regard. Each on a journey so selfless while being selfish in denying themselves of carnal wants and needs- desires.

This is a story that will stick with me for quite some time, one of those unforgettable contemporary romances that you rave about to the masses and re-read over and over, one that you crave to feel and experience for the first time again. Yeah, this book hangover is going to suck!
