“Forever was something we all took for granted, but the problem with forever was that it really didn’t exist.” 

The Problem with Forever – a romance novel by Jennifer L. Armentrout– is a beautiful book that captures emotions so elegantly. The book revolves around main characters Mallory Dodge and Rider Stark, who knew each other from the same foster home they went to. No, they didn’t just know each other. They were friends; best friends when they were younger, and maybe even more now.

It’s been four years since escaping that abusive home, and still Mallory hasn’t healed. When she meets Rider again, she realizes he hasn’t, either. So when they cross paths once again, neither of them are sure if they want to be reminded of their past, but turns out, fate is something they can’t control.

The characters in this book are too cute. None of that “make-a-character-just-for-the-sake-of-the-plot” nonsense, and somehow the well-thought characters make the plot even more appealing. I’m not gonna say this was the kind of thrilling, breathtaking, overflowing-with-plot-twists book, but it was a sweet read and was easy to get through.

I would recommend this book, and rate it 7/10. It was really smooth and I feel like a movie adaptation would be amazing!
