Life’s. Little. Surprises.

Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?

Forever Kinda Love is a fast-paced story that hooked me from start to finish.  It is a story filled with love and loss.  This story moved me in so many ways.  I loved how Ace and Heath were best friends and grew to love each other more than anything.  There were too many coincidences for it not to be fate.  They were meant to be together from the start.  I loved how Clara swapped up the POVs so I was able to connect with each character more and see what was exactly going on inside their heads.  

I loved Ace as a character.  She worked very hard for everything she got.  After her mother died, she pretty much took care of herself for ten long years.  Her father was so broken after his wife died that he stayed in a hole of despair.  When he finally comes out though, he must face something even worse.  This will be a hard challenge for Ace to face.  I had a feeling of what she must face at the beginning.  I was hoping it wasn't true, but I knew it was.  With all the support she had, she became a strong character and fault through everything.  I loved that about her.  Nothing got her down.  Heath was a stubborn man.  By gosh he was very swoon worthy.  I loved how he always protected Ace and looked out for her.  He had a playboy status, but all that changed when she became the one.  I loved seeing him change just for her.  

Halfway through this story I started to get real upset. Not with the story.  I knew where the story was heading so I was really worried on how it was going to end.  Lately I have been reading stories like this, and they end tragically.  I was so glad that we got a HEA in this book.  I was very satisfied with the ending and I hope to see more of these characters in the future to see what happened with them.  

Forever Kinda Love is a fantastic story that stayed with me after I finished it.  I honestly could not quit thinking about it.  This is a story that definitely left me wanting more.  Once I started this book, I could not put it down.  It is one of those stories that you have to finish right then and there to see how it ends.
