When Ethan rolls back into town, this is Sadie's chance to knock his socks off and make him realize what he's been missing all of these years. Not everything goes according to plan. Sadie didn't fathom that Ethan wouldn't recognize her. Ethan was just in town for a few days and he didn't expect to be falling head over heels for a blonde stranger. What he most certainly didn't see coming was that the blonde stranger would turn out to be Sadie. I've not had the opportunity to read anything by this author before. Forever the One turned out to be pretty good. It's the perfect book to take with you to the pool or beach this summer. It's easy to read and it's a sweet story. That being said, I did find it a bit ... simple. There's nothing wrong with that, it makes for an easy read but I wish that the characters had a bit more to them. I would have loved to know more about each of them. The characters didn't feel fully fleshed out to me. Yes, I had the opportunity to know each of them but I didn't feel like I KNEW them. If that makes any sense. I just wanted a little more from them. The characters weren't all that bad ... I really liked them, actually. But I was left wanting more. You know, this could be a completely strategic thing ... getting you hooked on a series and then you learn more about them as the series progresses. But that's nothing that I enjoy, personally. I would rather know the characters inside and out in the first book so that it will urge me to read the remainder of the series. Anyway. The story itself was also okay. I didn't find it boring or anything ... just again ... it lacked a bit of depth that I expected when picking this novel up. Most of the situations just seemed to brush the surface and not really delve into anything. There were so many background stories that I wish I was able to learn about because they were intriguing but those seem to be kept under lock and key in the Author Vault ... wherever that is ... I just know that they keep all of the alternate endings for novels and background info on characters along with lists of books with good ideas but horrible executions so that other authors can pick through and make better versions of things ... I'm pretty sure George R. R. Martin has his own wing and shit. Sometimes the only thing keeping me reading a book is the thought of an Author Vault out there ... somewhere ... and some day I might be able to find out more info on books that I almost really liked/loved/hated. Well. That was a nice little detour away from where I wanted to go with this. So ... pretty okay book. I wouldn't mind reading something else by this author to see if the writing is the same. If her other stuff is a bit deeper, I might have found a new author for my "Must Read Everything By This Person" list. **I received this book in exchange for an honest review**

    3.5 Stars. This book is exactly what it claims to be, nothing more, nothing less. Sadie has had a crush on her brother’s best friend since she was eleven, and despite the fact that she hasn’t seen him in person for about thirteen years, no one has ever compared to him in her mind. They’ve spent the long years talking over the phone, emailing and texting, so when Sadie needs help for a fundraiser Ethan agrees to come home. But instead of the cute kid in braces he knew all those years ago Sadie is 3.5 Stars. This book is exactly what it claims to be, nothing more, nothing less. Sadie has had a crush on her brother’s best friend since she was eleven, and despite the fact that she hasn’t seen him in person for about thirteen years, no one has ever compared to him in her mind. They’ve spent the long years talking over the phone, emailing and texting, so when Sadie needs help for a fundraiser Ethan agrees to come home. But instead of the cute kid in braces he knew all those years ago Sadie is now beautiful and hot, and clearly things are about to change between them. From there it’s all pretty obvious, minus the timeline of just how everything finally comes together. There is a one night stand, there is guilt, there are plenty of past issues raising their ugly heads and a surprisingly good working relationship. It’s all fairly standard and predictable, but I nevertheless enjoyed it. I have to admit that since both Sadie and Ethan are so firmly wrapped up in the theatre it’s strange that there’s not one play in the whole book. I would have liked to have actually seen something come out of all the projects they work so hard for – especially as there are plenty of time jumps in this book. However, since this is the first in this series maybe more does come out of it in future books. In this one, however, Ethan wanders around wallowing in guilt and bad memories, while Sadie stresses about how she’s going to fail and never be as good as her mother. With an added bit of friend time from Sadie’s two best girlfriends, who happen to be the little sisters of her brother’s best mates. I have to admit I found that coincidence just too convenient (and if all the sisters hook up with the brothers then it’s just… urgh), along with the lack of interest in running this apparently famous festival which leaves Ethan as the only viable choice. Hmm… The characters themselves are okay. Sadie is beautiful and good at what she does, but has extremely low self-esteem and sees herself as pathetically ordinary. Although there are hints of this throughout the book, it’s not really until the end that this becomes a big thing. Unlike Ethan, whose issues loom large throughout. To be honest it would have been nice to have known a bit more about both of them away from their issues and their current working relationship, because there’s a lot of empty space around their lives. In all this is a quick and easy read, perfect for if you don’t want to think too hard or have holiday time to spare. It won’t change the world, but it is fun enough to make it seem a bit brighter for a few hours. It certainly left me curious enough to investigate the rest of the series.

I enjoyed reading about Sadie and how she is always striving for the approval and love from her parents that her brother gets. She is also hoping to finally put to rest her long-time crush on Ethan. But of course, it all goes wrong and it all goes wrong quickly. Author Rochelle French was able to have the readers make an instant connection to the characters, the situations and the feelings that the characters shared. She had the reader believing that they were a part of the small town life and that they were all friends in the same circles. I loved learning about the film festival, the way in which the characters were able to integrate themselves into each other's lives and were able to make the reader feel like they were right there with them. The author describes the town, setting, and the theater in such detail that the reader is transported to them as they read the story. The plot is fast moving and smooth, and the reader feels like they are on a quick moving ride through the story. The author easily makes the reader feel like they are a part of the story and that story is unpredictable at times. The author throws in just the right amount of loops and twists to make the reader wonder, but at the same time it is still a believable story. This is a journey that any reader who appreciates a good romance novel will enjoy this one! It is truly an amazing read. Make sure you add this one to your TBR list soon, you don't want to miss out!

    Sweet, easy to read, standalone, small town romance mixed with an older brother’s best friend theme. This was the first book I ever read by Rochelle French and despite it having been a while since I first read it, it’s still one of my favourites, especially in the older brother’s best friend/ best friend’s younger sister theme.

This was the first book I ever read by Rochelle French and despite it having been a while since I first read it, it’s still one of my favourites, especially in the older brother’s best friend/ best friend’s younger sister theme. Overall, this was an enjoyably sweet, easy to read, standalone, small town romance with enough tension and drama to keep you interested and turning the pages with a HEA and epilogue that ties up the story nicely. The two main characters, Sadie and Ethan, while having been apart in person for many years after their childhoods, have remained in touch via email, phone etc. which allowed the foundation to be set up for the relationship that eventually develops between Ethan and Sadie. The dual points of views helped develop the characters and I loved how both had stubborn attitudes and personalities in regards to a relationship, especially Ethan’s views on a relationship; both clearly knew their own minds and tried to do the right thing but couldn’t deny the chemistry and growing attraction between them now as adults. It was intriguing how the chemistry was built up between the duo presently while working together and how they had to deal with their changing feelings. Forever the One was relatively well written with a good flow and was paced steadily but never dragged out. There was a clear solid plot and a few surprising twists and turns that unravelled as the book went on in regards to both characters and issues previously that have shaped who they are today. Even though it is part of a series, it can truly be read as a standalone as all things regarding Ethan and Sadie are concluded in this book. Definitely do not hesitate to give this book a read if you are a small town romance fan or a romance fan in general!

Ethan and Sadie both have feelings for each other, but Ethan has built a wall around his heart because of his traumatic past. He sees no way around it, even when he longs for Sadie. Sadie feels looked down upon by her family and does not have much confidence in herself. She also knows that pressuring Ethan is the wrong way to approach him. Reading the rest of the stories now with this group of friends and family.

These two had great chemistry and were always comfortable with each other, "ungrateful beast." Sadie's lips pressed together and she faked a swat on his rear." I honestly enjoyed this book.

    Not having read any of Rochelles books before, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed the whole concept of brothers best friend childhood crush developing to adulthood love. It’s a easy reader, not a lot of vulgar language that some books have although I usually like my love scenes to be more descriptive ( that’s just my opinion) A sweet love story. Tvm.

Girl grows up and still crushes on guy, guy doesn’t recognize the girl. Guy finally recognizes girl and gives her one passionate night and girl fights to keep guy. It’s the same story line that we have all heard or read about one time or another with nothing really spectacular to make it stand out. With the amount of books that I happily devour daily, it typically takes something really special and often times different to make me sit up and really take notice. I don’t mind reading “tired” or “played out” themes, as long as the author is able to make it their own, write it well and give the book a personality worth getting to know. Unfortunately, this one fell flat on two of the categories. The book is well written, it just didn’t stand out or give me anything I haven’t already heard before. Now, to be fair, I need to stress my earlier point…I read a lot…like, a lot, a lot. Normally around 2 novels a day. Now, that could be considered light reading to some, but if that is the case, then you definitely know what I am talking about when I say that something has to be really good to stand out in the crowd, because anything less than almost perfection quickly becomes forgettable. So, often times there are books that are pretty good, maybe even really good that I have read, but they will still only get a 2-3 star rating from me, because it’s the great and fantastic books that I read, the ones that really stand out, that I give my 4 and 5 stars to. So, with all that being said, this is a good book…meaning, there wasn’t anything that I hated about it and I did not cause anyone or anything physical damage while reading the book. I’m sure that a majority of you would find it an ok/good book and I was entertained while I was reading it, but when I was done with it, I was on to the next book without a thought or lingering feeling about it, it just didn’t stand out. Overall, no, this is not a book that I would recommend. Those looking for a quick, cutesy love story will likely enjoy this book, but those looking for something a bit more profound, or those who really like their reads to be more memorable (like I do), this one is not going to be for you. Happy reading, until next time… I would like to thank NetGalley and Bloomfield Publishing for the ARC of this title in exchange for an honest review.

    Unsatisfying I find the opening premise of this book to bed totally unbelievable. The hero has been gone from town for 12 years, and doesn't recognize the heroine when he sees her.

In this digital age of Facebook, selfies, and cell phone cameras, it doesn't make any sense that he wouldn't have seen photos, at least, of the heroine over the years. Even if it were possible, the heroines reaction was too over-the-top for someone who was supposed to be such good friends. The whole situation seemed contrived, as did the angst and drama of the rest of the book. It didn't fit the friends-to-lovers trope. Lastly, most of what happened in the story, whether present day or from the past, was narrated rather than experienced by the reader.

    This book was a Kindle freebie when I picked it up. It was okay. It has a few weird things going on with it. One you are reading along and then BAM it jumps ahead! Not sure if the author meant to do that or if it was an error. It read like an error, like a few chapters were misplaced. After reading these future chapters all of a sudden it jumps back. No indication that the character are thinking back, just all of a sudden you are. There were also some spelling errors and grammatical mistakes. I This book was a Kindle freebie when I picked it up.

    I actually truly did like this book, but there were a couple of issues that I had with it that just keeps me from giving it more than three stars. Ethan could have been better developed, there wasn't enough fleshing out when it came to him, is deep personal issues were stated. I didn't get to know him, it just feel like the entire conversation about his past was a simple statement of fact rather than a deeply personal and emotional reveal.

    This book was okay, it was entertaining and quick read. The plot is very basic, but it touched on mental illness very briefly. Whilst I think it's good that said subject was explored, I thought that it could have been done much better. I also felt like at times the main character was using mental illness as an excuse. That being said, I did like the book and the characters so I will be reading more from this author. This book was okay, it was entertaining and quick read.

    This was the 1st book I've read by this author...it was a free Amazon book and I thought I'd give it a try. It has all the basics that all novels need...likable characters, conflict, rising and falling action, resolution. It was a good read that took me about an hour to read. I have nothing bad to say about it. It's the 1st book in a series, so I'm curious to know where the author will take the other principal characters. This was the 1st book I've read by this author...it was a free Amazon book and I thought I'd give it a try.

    Absolutely loved this. You have a love that stands the test of time, lies to protect and sacrifice. Highly recommend it to everyone. Good from the first to last. To find someone like this in real life is rare. Can we clone him. “I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.”

    I would have given this 4 stars, but I was so confused for part of the book, that it ruined it for me! In my Kindle copy, chapter 14 was squeezed between chapter 6 and 7, which gave away that Ethan moved back to work with Sadie before she even asked him to. I was super confused, and had to back track to make sure it wasn't something I did within the Kindle that made events so out of order.

    CONTAINS SPOILERS This book is so bad I will rate if minus 5 stars. It seems to me that anyone can get on a computer and think of all the romance novels they have read, change the story and names a tiny bit, and voila a book. Typical story of kids grow up, blah blah, they get married.

    Great I found this book to be a story about people an their need for love. I found many similarities to my life. The author certainly knows people an their desire to search for lasting love.

    What a nice spin on a familiar story, Sadie has a crush on her brothers best friend Ethan. I enjoyed the banter between Sadie and Ethan very much. This is the first book in a six book series about the Town of Meadowbrook. I think this was a good start for the series.
