Greatest Hits by Laura Barnett Review

Hi ForeverBookers,
I've just finished a great contemporary, Greatest Hits by Laura Barnett!
3 Stars! - I got Greatest Hits to read through NetGalley so thanks to them for allowing me access. It was published on 15th June 2017 so is now available to buy. 
NOTE: Greatest Hits has some content to do with drugs. It's set in the mid 1990's when I believe drugs were seen as cool, though. There are some deaths of characters that are emotional scenes as well. 
Greatest Hits tells a biography, I suppose of this fictional singer named Cass Morgan. It tells the story from when she was born, in 1950 to present day. It describes all of the struggles that she has to cope with as well as the highs she experiences, throughout her career. 
Spoilers below...
Cass doesn't get on with her mother at all when she's young. Her mother called her Maria but she doesn't like this name. Her father calls her Cassandra, her second name so she goes by Cass. When her mother abandons her and her fat…

Obsession by Amanda Robson Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished Obsession and it was good. There are lots of twists and turns to keep you on the edge of your seat. I wasn't 100% sure what was going to happen throughout, which I liked. 
Thank you to NetGalley for granting me permission to read Obsession. It was a great read. Obsession is definitely an ADULT read as there are sex scenes as well as disturbing content too. 
We follow four people in Obsession. Rob, a doctor who's also very religious, Carly, a nurse and Rob's wife, Jenni another very religious person and Craig, Jenni's husband. We see from all of their perspectives throughout the novel. This was interesting but also a little jarring at times. 
Mental health is brought up in Obsession. Carly, who doesn't know who she truly loves, suffers, Jenni also suffers to an extent. I thought the author did a good job writing about the mental health issues. Although the book wasn't solely focused on them, enough time was given for t…

Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty Review

Hi ForeverBookers, how are you all today? I've just finished a great contemporary book!
NOTE: There are scenes of abuse and bullying in Big Little Lies so if you're sensitive about either of those topics this book maybe isn't for you. 
Big Little Lies tells several stories at once. There's the story about the trivia night that runs throughout, the story of who one of the main character's father is, the story of an abuse victim, a story of a teenage girl putting her virginity up for sail in the internet and the main story for most of the book, little children lying about who bullied another child. All these stories were handled well. 
We see the characters, both major and minor be interviewed throughout because of the murder that happened on trivia night. I'll be honest in saying that at the beginning of the book I thought that another character had been killed so it was a surprise to read what actually had happened. 
Spoilers below...
The main characters are written…

Love Alabama (Alabama #2) by Susan Sands Review

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished reading Love Alabama by Susan Sands and I did LOVE it. It's a cute contemporary that reminded me somewhat of Heart Of Dixie crossed with Gossip Girl. 
I'd say this is okay for 17+ readers. There is sex but it's not described. The main characters just have it. 
Love Alabama centres around Emma Laroux and Matthew Pope and their relationship. This is a 3rd person POV story, which I didn't dislike (for once). I thought the fact that it was 3rd person worked because you could see everyone on the same level. If it had been first person, we wouldn't have seen the parts where either Emma or Matthew were alone. Unless the chapters switched POV, which could have gotten messy. 
I was approved to read Love Alabama through NetGalley so thanks to them for letting me read it!  

Love Alabama is actually the second book in the Alabama series. I read it just by itself though, without the first book. This worked just as well as reading it a…

The Bad Luck Bride (The Cavansham Heiresses Book 1) by Janna MacGregor Review

Hey ForeverBookers, 
I've just finished a great book called The Bad Luck Bride by Janna MacGregor. It was really cute but also made me think while I was reading. 
Thank you to NetGalley for granting me the opportunity to read The Bad Luck Bride. 
The Bad Luck Bride tells the story of Lady Claire Cavansham and Lord Alexander Hallworth, the Marquess of Pembrooke from when they meet each other and what happens after...
NOTE: This is an ADULT read due to sexual encounters. 
Spoilers below: This story is told from 3rd person perspective. We start by seeing Alexander, who's just lost his sister. He doesn't know who to blame but he's going to find who hurt her. 
He meets Claire at a ball. Claire is the Bad Luck Bride from the title. She's been engaged/married many times but it's never turned out well. She's engaged to Lord Paul, a minor character at the beginning of the novel but he calls it off cause of the rumours surrounding her and her curse. Then she meets A…

Mad (Mad, Bad And Dangerous To Know Book 1) by Chloé Esposito Review

Hi ForeverBookers! 
I've just finished a pretty crazy story. It was a good crazy though.
Mad is released on 15th June 2017! I got this as a digital arc, through NetGalley so thank you to the publishers and NetGalley for being chosen to review it.

4 Stars!
Note: This is very much an adult read as there's lots of sex, killings and crime in general so it's for ADULT readers. If you're sensitive to any of that I would NOT read this also.
Mad tells the story of Alvina (Alvie) who turns to the life of crime when an incident happens. Alvie looses her job right at the beginning of the book. Alvie is a twin. She's always felt as if she was the unlucky twin because her mother didn't live her as much as her sister, Elizabeth (Beth). When Alvie looses her job she gets in contact with Beth who invites her over to Italy, where she lives with her family. 
As I said above this is very much a crime story. We, as the reader aren't sure of the story the entire time. We'r…

Amber Green Takes Manhatten by Rosie Nixon Review.

Hi ForeverBookers, 
I DNF'd this book I don't have much to say on it, even .I just thought it was so boring unfortunately. The first quarter (what I read) was all about the Glitz and the Glam of working in fashion. The only story there really was, was Amber and her boyfriend moving to New York, for his job. There has to be more story for me to enjoy it...1 Star, and that's being generous...
