Forever Yours

Goodreads Synopsis: 

Their passion burned hotter than the stars . . .

For Josephine “Jo” Kramer, nothing has ever been easy. When she earns a summer internship in Puerto Rico, working at one of the world’s preeminent scientific facilities, she’ll let nothing distract her. Not her own insecurities, not the arrogant scientists, and definitely not her tall, chiseled research partner, Adam.

For Adam McCay, physics is simple-it’s women who are complicated. Especially brilliant, beautiful ones like Jo. From the moment they meet, he can feel the heat smoldering deep beneath her icy exterior. And Adam knows just what it will take to make Jo melt . . .

Under the endless stars of a tropical sky, Jo and Adam indulge their every desire. But as their internship comes to an end, their perfect island paradise is threatened. Was their time together a summer fling? Or is their passion hot enough to last the long winter nights?

I started this book really not knowing what to expect but I actually enjoyed it. This book takes place in Puerto Rico where the main characters are spending a summer there, doing an internship in a famous astronomical science facility. With me being a science girl I knew that I wanted to read this book (I actually thought of studying Astronomy before choosing Marine Biology and Biotechnology so it’s something that interests me a lot 😀 ).
I actually started this book by not liking the main character Jo. The way she acted would make me really mad but through out the book we find out why she is like this. Now let’s talk about Adam. I really liked him from the beginning and I loved the way that he helped Jo during the book. Every time that she needed him he was there even if said that she didn’t want him there (when she wanted). Their interactions after the middle of the book sometimes were extremely cute and you could see how much Adam cared about Jo. Another thing I loved about this book was how they both changes for better because they were with each other, especially Jo. This was a super cute read but let me tell you that it has some mature content so it’s not something that everyone would like to read. My only problem with this book was that the beginning was a little bit slow but after a few chapters it was in the right pace and I was able to fly through the book. One thing that I absolutely loves was the epilogue. I’m sucker for epilogues and I love them so it was great to see where the characters were one year later.
Overall, this book was even better than I was expecting and it really surprised. While I know that this book is not for everyone I think that everyone that loves new adult contemporary should try this out. It will probably surprise you 🙂 !


4 stars
