Book Review – The Problem With Forever by Jennifer.L.Armentrout…

When Mallory was a kid, she was bounced from one horrible foster home to another. At thirteen, a terrible accident got her removed from the group home where she was living to a hospital where she met the parents who would adopt her. But when she starts a new school and encounters an old friend from the foster system sparks start to fly.
I was given an ARC by Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
Mallory is, we learn from the start, a deeply damaged young lady. Her past has scared her so deeply that it is almost seared into her soul. I feel, because of this, incredibly drawn to her. She makes you want to reach through the paper and too her in effort to soothe her and tell her that everything will be OK.
The story deals with the failures of the foster care system and the damage that system can inflict on a malleable young child.
It is stunningly written and the characters are solid, likeable and utterly believable. It is so emotional that near the end of the book I was in floods of tears. A truly beautiful story indeed.
A five out of five star read.
I am truly grateful to Netgalley and  Harlequin(UK) for my copy of this book.
