Waiting on Forever by Ashley Wilcox ~ Blog Tour and Giveaway




Synopsis

College.

Parties, sororities and getting drunk.

Oh, yeah. And learning.

This may be true for most college students, but not for Leah Bennett. College life for her includes studying, working, and excelling in school. When it comes to the social ladder, Leah is at the bottom. Popular girls, hot guys and star athletes are of no importance to her, except for one.

Matthew Jacobs.

Matt is the starting wide receiver at SUNY Cortland, the most wanted guy on campus and Leah’s best friend. Although Leah’s feelings toward Matt run deeper than just a friendship, it is something she would never let be heard because the odds of someone like Matthew Jacobs going for someone like Leah Bennett are slim to none.

When Matt starts showing an interest in Leah that goes beyond friendship, she is dumbfounded and doesn’t believe it is possible – until one weekend that changes everything.

Will Matt and Leah’s popularity status get in the way of having a chance at a real relationship?

Or does status mean nothing when it comes to true love?


Review

4 Stars....

First, let me say this book was really well written and flowed beautifully.  A very fast read about finding your first, true love. This story was about two young college students "The Jock" and "The Quiet Nerd" who find each other first day of orientation for college.  Their relationship blossoms throughout the story then BAM they fall hard!  Sweet, Sweet Leah once she got a taste of Matt there was no turning back.  There were a few reveals that totally shocked me!  Unbelievable? Yes I know, especially with all the steamy erotic novels I have read lately.  This love story was not steamy and erotic but just sweet young love.  Every character was so well defined and completely made this story even better. 

Completely loved how Ashley began the book in Matt's POV and ended in his POV.  BRILLIANT!!! 


Congrats Ashley Wilcox on a job well done!  Keep up the good work, you have grown as a writer and I'm really looking forward to the next book in The Forever Series!

About the Author

Some may consider me a jack of all trades, but I consider myself well rounded.

I’ve waitressed, styled hair, answered phones and, most recently, worked full time as mom to my two beautiful little boys.

Then there was this book…

Everyone and their brother started talking about this book series titled Fifty Shades of Grey by EL James. I didn’t really pay attention to the craze at first, since I wasn’t a big reader- okay, I didn’t read at all. But curiosity got the best of me, so I downloaded it to my kindle.

I was immediately hooked. I read the whole series in three days. Yes, three books in three days.

I kept finding all these great books that I HAD to read (just ask my credit card!).

Then I started hearing voices. Voices that turned into stories; stories that were begging to get out of my head.

I started writing them down on scraps of paper. Then I transferred them to my computer. Before I knew it, PLANNING ON FOREVER was born.

The voices in my head are still talking, so I’m still writing.
