Release Date: February 23
A new angsty stand alone love triangle romance from USA Todaybestselling author K.A. Linde that will keep you guessing which man is her groom and which one objects…
I’m in love with two men.
But I can only marry one.
And today is my wedding day.
The bridesmaids button my wedding dress. They titter excitedly as the music begins. My groom is waiting for me. I walk down the aisle prepared to say I do. All according to plan.
Except for the shout from the back of the room, “I object!”
I should have known it couldn’t be that easy. After fourteen years of push and pull, neither of them is going to let me go.
We’re a trio that should have never been.
Me and Cole and Ash.
One that I’m to marry and one that I’m to leave behind.
Now, once and for all, I have to choose: my groom or the man objecting?
But until then…hold the forevers.
Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars
I went into Hold The Forevers knowing that it was going to be angsty. I mean, it’s a love triangle where the blurb says that her wedding is interrupted by the other guy. But I had no idea just how angsty this was going to be! Lila, Ash and Cole’s story is an unending tennis match, an emotional rollercoaster of epic proportions.
This book is told all through Lila’s POV, spanning 12 years as she dates Ash in high school, Cole in college, and then flip-flops between them both as a young adult in her 20s and 30s. The timeline is kind of all over the place as each layer of this triangle is peeled back like an onion; chapters go back and forth in time as we learn about her relationships with both guys. I found myself constantly having to flip back a chapter or two to get the years lined up, but I understand how that choice worked for KA Linde in telling this whopper of a story. There is cheating, there is fighting, there is a lot of hurt feelings and broken hearts in Hold The Forevers, but I devoured it in a day.
Honestly, I started off not sure which guy I should be rooting for, but it became clear to me which one really knew her better. And there’s an event that is eventually detailed, and that just made me mistrust one of the two men and eventually shipping the competition.
I didn’t find Lila to be a doormat when it comes to the guys; I was all in on her just being totally confused and in love with them both. Cole and Ash were both jealous asshats at times, and constantly in a pissing match against each other. But Lila always keeps coming back to one of them…
Once Lila makes her final choice, I felt like the story just ended abruptly. I was glad to see that there was a bonus epilogue and immediately downloaded it to read. I loved that conclusion, that closure, and seeing how happy and carefree Future Lila is with the guy she ultimately chooses.
This story is a doozy, but if you don’t mind angst and love triangles, then prepare yourself to get sucked in!
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
