Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl...
Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.
When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.
It’s been hours since I’ve finished reading this story and no matter how long I sit here processing what I’ve just read it is as if the words to describe how it made me feel will never be good enough.
Forever Right Now is about a character that we’ve previously met in The Butterfly Project, Darlene. If you have forgotten the role she played don’t fret because Darlene character comes center stage in this book. She is literally a force of nature. What was so great about her is that in no means is she perfect. She is a recovering addict who is courageous enough to move across the country to begin anew.
For this reason alone I feel in love with her but as I got deeper into it I realized that I hadn’t seen anything yet. Darlene was this ray of sunshine. Just being in her presence made everything better. She was exactly what a struggling student and single father named Sawyer needed in his life. As much as I adored Darlene’s character… it was Sawyer that had my heart.
This man, good grief how he had so much baggage, baggage that no sane woman would touch with a ten-foot pole no matter their history but Darlene was selfless enough not to dwell on such things.
For these two to meet was so random yet Emma Scott definitely proved to us that FATE had a hand in their meeting. In the usual fashion, this work of art is another slow burn that Emma Scott is well known for.
Some may think that this is maddening but personally I thought this was just another magnificent element of the story. It doesn’t focus as much on the sexy, hot and heavy rather it highlights establishing one loving and lasting relationship.
If you are looking for an awe-inspiring, feel-good, fated love story that will resonate down deep into your soul, read this book…or any book penned by the talented Emma Scott.
