 Always Forever Maybe

by: Anica Mrose Rissi

Amazon // Goodreads


When Betts meets Aiden at the candy store where she works, their connection is like a sugar rush to the heart. Betts already knows the two of them are infinite. Inevitable. Destined to become an us.

Betts has only ever kept one secret from her best friend, Jo, but suddenly there’s a long list of things she won’t tell her, things Jo wouldn’t understand. Because Jo doesn’t see how good Aiden is for Betts. She finds him needy. Possessive. Controlling.

She’s wrong. With a love like this, nothing else matters.

Always Forever Maybe – Review

This was a hard-hitting topic book. It’s about a first real relationship, which has no expectations, turn into something it never should.

When your first relationship starts, you have no idea what to expect. You don’t see the red flags, you don’t see what’s not ok or inappropriate. You expect it to be unicorns and rainbows. Betts’s first relationship was anything but. 

There is so much wrong with this book, but it’s more so because it’s raw, it’s important, it’s all the best kind of wrong to make it so right. It makes you realize how vulnerable teenagers can be.

The characters were a perfect blend of ‘love is blind’ and best friends forever. Jo and Betts were the absolute drives for the story. Sure, the relationship with Aiden was front and center, but without Jo, it was just another love story gone bad. The friendship was vital to the story, and it made it that much better to read.

Parts of this book will tear your heart open. Its force is brutal and stunning, but it’s what many readers need to hear.
