Forever Yours by Nicole Salmond is a love story like many others I have read. It starts off where a "Plain Jane" named Stella meets a celebrity where she works, but doesn't know just how famous this man is. She's attracted to Tristan, but his personality irritates her. Eventually they both are basically questioning who they are as individuals to determine if they should be together.
Let me begin by saying that I didn't hate this book, it just really irritated me. The beginning is so poorly written with conflicting statements every other paragraph that I didn't want to continue reading...but I did. About halfway through the book, the writing did get a little better but the storyline was still very predictable and the relationship between Stella and Tristan remained just like so many other "love" stories I've read.
When I went back to the Amazon page to read the description of this book, I noticed that Salmond has listed two editors for this novel. I honestly do not understand how two editors didn't pick up on some major weaknesses with the plot development in Forever Yours. There were portions of this book where it seriously dragged, and the most intriguing part (the twist) was rushed and I felt unsatisfied with the amount of information given.
That all being said, the actual story of Stella and Tristan and what they went through is somewhat intriguing, it was just poorly executed. I saw the potential, which in my opinion means she just needs a really good editor who's not willing to hurt the author's feelings and tell her where she went wrong.
Overall, I give Forever Yours 2 1/2 stars.
