We Said Forever is an angsty and emotional bumpy ride of a story. Even though it is love at almost first sight for or Fallyn and Blaze, their road is not an easy one. They soon find out that love alone is not enough to sustain their relationship with out communication and trust.
“I’m scared,” I confess on a whisper, praising myself internally for being brave enough to put it out there, but at the same time, hating that it may give him a chance to back out. Silence fills the room for the longest time. “I am too,” he admits. “But no amount of unease I feel about taking such a big step with you makes me doubt the fact that I will love you every single second for the rest of my life. We’ll fight, argue, and say sh*t we don’t mean, but at the end of the day, you’re the best thing that has ever happened to me. As cliché as it sounds, you complete me.”
At the start of the story Blaze is the golden boy, the football hero, with a bright future but a series of bad choices sets him on the wrong path. I really wanted to shake some sense into him! My heart broke for Fallyn who goes through so much but her love for Blaze never falters!
“You promised, you promised!” she chants with desperation as the door closes behind me. “We said FOREVER!”
This was definitely an emotional Rollercoaster of a story, but I loved every word of it! I hate you, but I love you, Author Marie James!!
They say the only way to go from there is up, but what is “up” when you’re born into someone else’s rock bottom?
At ten, football became my first love. It’s what got me out of the house away from my self-destructive family. My love for football landed me at Las Vegas University with a full ride scholarship, and the orange on my jersey was my favorite color…until my eyes landed on the red dress Fallyn wore the night we met.
At twenty-one, I jumped off the cliff into the unknown the second Fallyn McIntyre danced in my arms at a party. I had the greatest girl in the world and the opportunity to play college ball every Saturday. My rock bottom was looking up, thanks to my two first loves.
Parties, sex, and football—life was perfect. But one drink too many, and my world came crashing down. When I chose pills over my second love, my head told me it was the best decision I ever made. The pills keep me warm and protect me from the distance Fallyn created. Percs don’t judge me. They make me feel alive.
They say the best things come in threes, but one leads to a stable future, one is my salvation, and the other drags me to hell—a hell I’d willingly burn in for eternity…if it weren’t for my second love.
