Synopsis: Charlie Jennings and Jhett Hudson knew that a single moment could change everything.
It took them one song to find each other, one question to give them a chance, one kiss to fall in love, and one night to almost lose it all. But they had one thing other couples lack - pure, unconditional love - and that takes more than a moment to walk away from.
Falling in love is only the beginning. Forever is what happens next.
I was really excited to read this novella after I read Promise Me This back in July! Yes, July lol! I have to admit that I was slightly disappointed when the author announced that Promise Me Forever was being turned from a full length book to a novella, but I admire her for making that really tough decision and it definitely paid off either way! This novella summed up the main characters love beautifully! The plot was full of emotion and it was continued on perfectly from where the first book left off from! The plot was also so beautiful! I cried at it and everything! Quite a lot happened in it for it being a novella, but I think this was because it was originally supposed to be a full length book! I loved that quite a lot happened in it because it kept the pace up and I was hooked! I also read this novella in one sitting! I do have to say though that this novella started straight away and I actually had to go back and re-read the last few chapters of Promise Me This to refresh myself of where it left off from because this novella doesn't really remind you of what happened in the first book! The characters were again amazing! Charlie was again the main female character and she went through so many emotions in this novella! After what she went through in the first book and the events that took place before the first book, this novella showed how far Charlie had come as a person! She was a lot more content and this novella was where Charlie came to terms with everything that she had been through! She sort of started to come to terms with it all in the first book with the help of her love interest, Jhett, but this novella was where she really came to terms with it all! I just loved Charlie! I was seriously happy for her for how far she had come and also how far her relationship developed with Jhett too! I grinned like an idiot at it lol! Jhett was again the main male character and he was so freaking adorable in this novella! He was always there for Charlie and I could see just how much he loved her! Jhett also went through a lot of emotions during this novella too, but I admired him for putting Charlie's emotions first! Jhett had also come a long way from the first book, but he was still that hot, tattooed, slightly less cocky guy lol! I just loved him! I loved that this novella was written from both Charlie and Jhett's point of view just like the first book was! It's definitely essential to go inside both of the main characters heads because of how emotional the plot is! I'm really sad to say goodbye to Charlie and Jhett, but there story has been bittersweet and they came such a long way, both as individuals and as a couple! I also can't wait to see what this author has coming next, but I can guarantee that I will definitely be reading it! The cover for this novella is absolutely stunning! I love how perfect it suits the first book's cover as well! It's so freaking beautiful! Big thank you to Sarah for an ARC of Promise Me Forever and to Grapevine Book Tours for having me on the Blog Tour!

Sarah Ashley Jones was raised in San Diego, California, but currently wrangles her husband and three dogs in Clarksville, Tennessee. When she’s not writing she works in a pottery studio and comes home covered in paint on a daily basis. She has a slightly unhealthy obsession with cupcakes and chapstick. She is an eternal optimist and can often be found dancing and singing to music at any given time. It’s rare to see her not smiling or laughing, but if you do, just bring her a cupcake and it will cheer her up. Her huge imagination was always in overdrive as a child and now she is beyond excited to put it to good use as an adult. She plans to write as long as she has stories that need to be told.
