Description

She’s all I could ever want… 

I have a reputation around school. Cold. Untouchable. Unfeeling. Only one girl could ever make me want to change and that’s Amanda Winters. Too bad I broke her heart and drove her away. 

So to get through the rest of my days in high school, I tell myself I need to focus on more important things. Like taking our football team to championships. Get accepted to the college of my choice. And finish my senior year without wanting to run away from my problems. 

But your problems chase after you no matter where you go. And it’s a lot harder when you fight them alone. The longer I go without Amanda, the more I miss her. Her smile. Her laughter. The things she said. How she looked at me like I was the only person who mattered. The way she made me feel… 

Why can’t I have everything, including the girl? I’m determined to make things right. And make Amanda mine… 

Forever.

  • One of the best books I ever read

    I love this book so much! I love the ending. I highly recommend you read this if you want to read a good love story, but I also think you should read the last book in the series so you won't get confused.

    #CuddleWithTuttle ***I love it when she rakes her fingers through my hair. Does she remember? Does she know that’s a weakness? Does she realize she’s my weakness? I don’t even think she knows the all-consuming power she holds over me. I didn't think I could love Tuttle anymore and then BAM! Monica writes this book! I always had a soft spot in my heart for Tuttle, his pain and his situation. His feeling of not being worthy of love and affection. I love a good 'broken' bad boy who learns his self worth and learns that he CAN love someone! And Amanda is PERFECT for him!! This was the perfect conclusion to their story. I'm kinda sad that this is the end, that we won't get more Tuttle. #SadPanda. If you've read the first 2 books in this series, you won't wanna miss this conclusion! It has it all... drama, family issues, blackmail, enemies, friends, love, romance, all the great components to a great story!
  • Awesome end to an amazing story!

    “Forever” is author Monica Murphy’s newest young adult book, and the third (or fourth, if you include her FREE prequel, “One Night”) in her “Friends” series. I have been waiting for this book since I finished “More Than Friends,” when Monica left us all in suspense, feeling torn about the characters, and experiencing (again) all the high school angst and aggravation I thought I had forgotten. Will Ryan and Livvy stay together, can Livvy and Em repair their friendship, where does Livvy’s relationship with Dustin go? And, more importantly, what happens with Amanda and Tuttle? Because, I loved them in the last book. And, when that book ended, I wanted to strangle Tuttle … and then hug him and tell him that it would all work out. Luckily, Monica is simply fantastic and, now, I love these characters even more. Monica rewarded her readers for patiently waiting for this storyline to play out. It is wonderful and amazing, and I strongly suggest you read this series! *I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this story and am posting an honest review.
  • Addictive YA goodness!

    4.5 Stars! I have to admit… I never thought I would get so invested in a YA romance series, but the Friends series is addictive, crazy goodness! In Forever, we get more of the crazy teenage drama (and there is a lot of it) and the conclusion to Amanda and Tuttle’s story, plus more of the gang! Jordan and Amanda make me crazy. They are so scattered sometimes. They are perfect but they can’t seem to get over themselves enough to get it together. Jordan is by far the best character in this series. Even when you want to scream at him you love him. I loved Jordan and Amanda’s resolution. Forever is a fast-paced, addictive page-turner with characters that will drive you crazy and make you love them at the same time. Murphy has really out done herself with Forever!

    As soon as I got this book, I set everything aside to read it. I had at least two other books I was supposed to finish but I couldn't ignore Tuttle. I had to know what happened with him and Amanda. As soon as I started, I couldn't put it down. No work was done at all until I knew if Tuttle and Amanda got their HEA. They did but it was a bumpy ride getting there. I also love that we get to see what's going on with Livvy, Em and the other characters. My heart hurt for Kyla but there was also love waiting for her. I think Em was misunderstood a lot from the beginning but I liked that she also got love too. As for Livvy, I am still on the fence about her but she's not so much of a wreck as she was in Just Friends. I'm sad that I'm done with the book. I need more Tuttle... can we have more Tuttle?

    Wow! What an awesome ending to the Friends Series! I absolutely love Amanda and Jordan's story!! This book was filled with such teenage drama and angst!! It took me back in time!! I remember how catty high school kids can be especially the girls!! All the on and off again with Amanda and Tuttle made me want to pull my hair out!! Several times I wanted to yell at Jordan and knock some sense into him!! I loved reading the dual POV and knowing why Jordan acted the way he did!! He definitely redeems himself in the end!! It will have you feeling all the feels!! Such a sweet ending!! I'd #CuddleWithTuddle any day!! If you liked the first two books then I think you will love this one and if you haven't read them first then make sure you read in order!! Monica did such an awesome job and I can't wait to see what she has in store for us next!! I received an early copy and voluntarily left my honest review.
  • Perfection!

    Perfection! Monica Murphy perfectly captures contemporary YA romance with the push and pull, the yearning and angst and the all consuming rush of first love in this series. This is the final book of this series and I am finding it very difficult to say goodbye, to Sexy, Cool, Untouchable, Unfeeling, Rich, Jock, Jordan Tuttle and Sweet, Smart, Caring, Amanda Winters. Truthfully I never wanted this story to end. This series had me smiling, laughing, melting and swooning as well as fuming and crying at the antics of young love. But I never stopped turning the pages of each book in this series and read each one in one sitting. So mesmerized with the story, main characters, and secondary characters and their journey. Loving the new friendships, first romances and serious issues as well as some family dynamics that made this Series Outstanding! Loved it! Highly Recommended! I voluntarily requested an ARC from the author and publisher and readily wrote a honest review!

    Finally the conclusion to Amanda and Tuttle's story and it's fantatastic! After leaving Amanda broken hearted at the end of More Than Friends Jordan Tuttle realizes what a mistake he's made and vows to win her back. While on this journey we really get inside Tuttle's head and find out what really motivates him. Told in dual POV you really get to know these two and can't help but cheer for them to find their way. The growth these two go through during their last year of high school is filled with typical teenage angst but also filled with dreams and hopes for a future. Love these guys and definitely would recommend this series of books.
