BETWEEN NOW AND HEARTBREAK, part two in the heart wrenching, sexy and surprising Forever Trilogy from Dylan Allen is available now!
He’s searching for the truth.
I’m living a lie.
And as much as we want to,
we can’t stay away from each other.
Falling for Carter nearly cost me everything.
To save myself I made a deal with the devil.
Now, I’ve got a second chance and more to lose than ever.
So when he makes it clear he wants me back,
I vow not to make the same mistake twice.
Carter has learned his lesson, too.
He’s done making promises.
This time, he’s staking his claim.
He already owns a piece of my heart,
But he won’t settle for less than all of me.
And by the time his seduction is done, I’ll want to give it to him.
But I made promises I have to keep.
And the devil I owe has come to collect his due.

This is book two of the Forever Trilogy and if you haven’t read the first book (Between Now and Forever), I strongly suggest that you read that one first.
Whilst book one ended with Carter finding out the identity of his biological brother, book two continues with Beth’s “deal” with Duke and their impending engagement. I must say that this tale had me on tenterhooks when Carter finds his way back to Beth and their hot trysts gave me mini heart attacks thinking of the what-ifs. The character development of Beth is a pleasure to read: from being a pawn to her father’s ambitions, toeing the line, changing her looks and finally finding the courage to tell the world what she wants but at what cost though?
“What’s romantic is knowing the odds are stacked against you and taking a chance on something impossible, anyway. Because it’s what you want more than anything else. You can tell it’s what’s meant for you.”
There is no denying Beth and Carter’s special connection since book one but their attraction for each other bears a lot of repercussions. Despite the emotional upheaval, they both experienced their love for each. Although it’s strong, is it enough to overcome Beth’s family duties? The biggest twist in the last part of this story was enough to knock me off my chair. Wow, I didn’t see that one coming! I love the secondary characters, the antagonists are sometimes too evil to the point of becoming a caricature, but this is why this trilogy is so riveting for me.
Dina, Beth’s best friend, gives her the balance she needs and the sage advice she imparts gives Beth the impetus to change the direction in her life. We all need a Dina in our life! The author’s note tells her readers to go back to the prologue in Between Now and Forever to remind us that there is a happy ending to Beth and Carter’s story. However, I found it hard to think how the heck the author could get these lovers out of their predicament in Between Now and Heartbreak. This I would like to find out in Between Now and Always and I’m sure Ms. Allen will give us more twists and turns than a London bendy bus!
