    • *** LOVED THIS !! ***STORY OF LIA AND NEILThis is a story told in two partsIt starts when LIA and NEIl are just teenagers.I'm normally not one for college romances ( which part one is ) but it TOTALLY worked for me,in fact it more than worked as I actually enjoyed part one the mostA is a lot different to the sterotypical college girle comes from the wrong side of the tracks,thinks people think less of her, and her and two friends play a dangerous gameey set their sites on a certain boy or man an [...]

    • 4.5 Finding Each Other Again Stars * * * * 1/2Growing up is hardrow in grade school/high school clicks with cliches and you have a perfect storm for teenagers making bad choicesThere is just no getting around it. Doesn't matter economically or regionallyif the circumstances happen when people feel their only way to prove themselves is to take some type of controlwhether positively or notey will. These notions are part of this excellent book, Forever Red.I want to do a side note, first. I have be [...]

    • Forever Red is set in two parts, the past then a time jump to the present for part two. And I really like this, it totally worked for me because I am not a fan of excessive flashbacks. So thank you author for this, you rock!If I'm honest, for a fair bit through this book I didn't like Lia much at all, but slowly began to warm to her. Stupid teenage bullshit caused all the pain and suffering that could have been avoided If. She. Had. Only. Asked!! But, she knew she effed up, owned that and tried [...]

    • This book combined three of my favorite things in the contemporary genre! Best friends to lovers, reunion/second chances and musician-romance (that's the trifecta of awesome right there!) The setup isn't bad, despite it being premised on that oft used, nauseatingly stupid "I'm doing this hurtful thing to you because I love you and you're better off without me" bullshit.I had thought I was so mature, that somehow I had all the answers and knew what was best for everyone, so I made their decisions [...]

    • I couldn't put this one down.A second chance romance featuring childhood first loves all grown up. I was hooked from the prologue where our 29 year-old Lia is all set to go on a surprise meet and greet with hawt country music megastar, Nate. Except Nate was her first love who she ran away from age 18. Love that set up.This is narrated in alternate fp, initially ten years ago and then now. It's hard for me to get into a love story when I know it's going to go tits up, I'm kind of reading with one [...]

    • Well, I was looking for a country rock star book, and I found it (thanks to a recommendation from Niki), and I loved it! This book had everything I lovends to lovers romance, a strong heroine, an amazing hero, angst, bitchy women, family drama, trauma, separation, friendship, hope, and that long awaited reunion which was well worth the wait!!  Second chance romance is exactly what this book is about!Lia (Cecelia) is from a poor family and only wants to get out of her small town.  Neil/Nate ( [...]

    • Whoa! This book was totally epic! I do love a great second chance romance and this one totally fit the bill. This was a nice juicy book, one you can really sink your teeth into. It had a lot of facets to the story and characters.Lia wants nothing but to graduate from high school and leave her crappy hometown behind. She wasn't counting on falling for the new guy at her school, Neil. Boys have always just been a game to her, pawns in her and her friend's schemes. Neil is different, and they form [...]

    • Told in dual POV's, the story spans differing time frames. One as teenagers, where we learn all about both characters; then we have them as adults, where they hash it all out and get a second chance at their romance story. The prelude to their adulthood was portrayed in apt detail. With each scene pulling wonderful emotions from the reader. My preference leaned towards the teenage years, as opposed to their adulthood. So my feelings towards the genre were quelled at Contemporary Romance. It felt [...]

    • OMG OMG OMG THIS BOOK!!It gave me all the feels! And so much more! It’s not often that I’m offered an arc, and of an author that I have not read before, and than completely knocks me on my butt. It’s rare that gems like these land in my hand. Ones, that I just want to scream from the rooftops “READ THIS BOOK!!!” And this book was like striking gold.It’s written in 2 parts. Which makes it long. And for $2.99, i think it’s way underpriced. IMO. But this was done perfectly. You needed [...]

    • For me it's all about the story, and this story shined brighter than a firecracker on the 4th of July! Yeah, it had great sex scenes also, but this book is so good it wouldn't have even mattered. Now that's great writing in my book. Carina Adams had me so involved in her story I wouldn't have noticed a mistake if there was one. Loved it! Totally loved it! :D

    • 5 Star Review by Jen Skewes Forever Red CoverI am such a sucker for friends to lovers and second chance love stories. And what is great about Forever Red is that it gives us both. I loved Lia and Neil’s story and loved going on this journey with them. Their story is about love, heartbreak, forgiveness, second chances and so much more. Carina Adams did such an amazing job with this story. It is one of those books that you just cannot put down and when you are done you cannot stop thinking about [...]

    • 3.5-4 STARSI picked this book up at random. I didn't read the blurb and I didn't read any reviews for it. All I knew was the title and what the cover looked like. It looks like I'm going to have to do this more often seeing as I really enjoyed this one!This was an enjoyable second chance romance. I have found that second chance romances really aren't my thing but this one worked. I loved how it was written in two parts. You got Nate and Lia's past and then their present. I enjoyed all of the sec [...]

    • Forever Red is live! I can't wait for you all to read it. Neil and Lia had a much different story than what I usually write. They're two kids who are lost, each for different reasons, and because of their time together, are able to find themselves. The characters in this book make me smile. Happy reading!

    • This is one of those books that is far from perfect plot wise but strangely addictive. First read for me by this author. I liked the writing style.The story is in two parts. The first part is when Neil/Nate and Cecelia/Lia meet as 16 year olds. Lia is a completely different book heroine to what I'm used to reading. She is not a shy little virgin. Far from it, her and her two friends have a game they play which is not a nice one. However, when Nate meets her, he is smitten. They start off as frie [...]

    • This book had me from the blurb and then until the very last page. Rarely do we pass up a hot, tatted up, soulful singer, however getting to know Nate from the beginning was it for me. Carina Adams did a clever thing with this book by starting us in the present, then taking us to the past, then back to the present. Giving her readers every ugly detail of the relationship. "I couldn't let him do it, couldn't let me be the thing that held him back, couldn't let his love for me destroy his dreams. [...]

    • Absolutely LOVED this book! It had everything I love in a romance.nds to lovers and 2nd chance romance all in one. I couldn't put this book down and stayed up way too late and then got up way too early the next day to finish it. LOL. I adored Lea. She was fantastic. She molded into a stigma because of her status in town, but she was such a sweet and loyal person. Nate aka Neil and Lia were fantastic as friends, sweet as can be when they dated in high school and smokin hot together when they were [...]

    • My money was on the redheadHmm This was my first Carina Adams read. It was the sexy cover and musical references that caught my attentiond then the blurb closed the deal with covered in tattoosand ultimate bad boy.The Prologue grabbed my attention immediately, and then the author took me back in time to when the main characters met in high school. While I did find this period interesting, it was a little too long and detailed to keep my full attention. I was tempted to skim, but was afraid to mi [...]

    • Hits all the right spots Firstly I love cocky cowboys with swaggerSecondly I love Rock star reads with the drama and angstThirdly I love a second chance romance it makes me gooey inside. This had all that and more with the beginning being the past that very much dragged you into the lives of Lia and nathaniel and the highs and lows of their teen romance to the present and reunion of this hot couple. With angst,drama,humour,heartwarming moments and great writing this was a great read that I would [...]

    • An average enjoyable read that fell short of what I had hoped would be something a bit different and extraspecial. Loved the cover and it gets kudos for drawing my attention.Told in dual POVs helped to give the story much more depth and staying power than otherwise would have been found. There was a bounce in time frames with teen years and characters from opposite sides of the tracks into adulthood some ten years later for a nice balance in the second chance at love storyline. One has become a [...]

    • I absolutely loved it. Loved Nate and Lia's relationship both when they were teenagers and adults. Oh poor Mike, there has got to be a sequel from Mike's point of view. That epilogue totally threw me off; it was an absolute shocker. I sure didn't see that coming. Anyway, awesooooome book, and please give me something from Mike's POV Ms Adams. Pretty please. Awesoooooome!!!!

    • 10+++++ stars. Absolutely loved this book.I'm dying for moreease tell me Mike is going to get his own bookat epilogue left me a messloved me some Neil/ Nate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Nate and Lia are high school sweethearts. Through circumstances, they separate and move forward in different directions. Both are broken-hearted, but life must go on. Nate becomes a famous country music superstar. Lia follows his career, and is very proud of the man he has become.Lia’s friends decide to surprise her for her birthday with concert tickets and backstage passes to see the one and only Nate Kelly. Her friends have no idea that Lia knows Nate Kelly personally—and she’s terrified [...]

    • You can read this and other reviews at Inked in ChaptersI’m going to start this review off by telling you exactly what you need to know:You need. To read. This book.I haven’t come away from a book feeling like this in months. The funny thing? I wasn’t even sure I wanted to read it. When it finally showed up on my kindle and I looked at the length, I literally groaned out load. Then I wrote Sarah saying that it was 6K something lines and I would never finish it. I didn’t just finish it, I [...]

    • From first love to forever love and all the fears, angst and passion that happens in betweenis book has it all. One of the things I've noticed is that Carina apparently enjoys putting her characters through the emotional wringer and this story isn't any different. Lia is a stubborn, fiery redhead with a questionable social status and reputation when Neil Kelly transfers to her high school. Neil's different; he doesn't know of her history and even though he lives on the wealthy side of town and q [...]

    • I absolutely loved this book. It's told for the dual POVs of Nathaniel and Cecelia. It's also told in tow parts. Part One is Then, in this part we get to see Nathaniel and Cecelia in high school. Part Two is Now, which in the present day. I didn't have a favorite part because they both were wonderfully written that I never lost interest or had the urge to skip parts. Nathaniel (he also goes by Neil and Nate) is a country boy who moves up north and meets Cecelia (she also goes by Lia and Cece) in [...]

    • This was my first experience reading a book by Carina Adams and I wasn't disappointed! I love the cover of Forever Red. It drew me in and made me want to know more.The story begins with Lia's friends taking her to a Nate Kelly concert, in a limousine, as a surprise birthday gift. They also manage to secure passes for a meet and greet, all without knowing that Nate Kelly, the king of country music, was her first love when they were in high school. In the years since, they have had no contact but [...]

    • This story hooks you pretty fast and keeps you on the edge of your seat waiting to learn what happens next. There's plenty of sexual tension, story angst and really comical moments. I love the rocker genre, but I didn't even realize this was what I was going to be reading with this one. In fact, if there was one thing that bothered me about this book is that despite Nate/Neil's family history, he jumped from football stand out to rock star status without so much as picking up a guitar. I had no [...]

    • A NOT SO TYPICAL COWBOY :) T-SHIRTS, TORN JEANS, AND TATS GALORE, giddy up Cowboy![image error]OH, I needed this! Such a sweet story and I loved both Nate (hell yes) & Lee. They were young when they first met at school, best friends, turned to more.Of course, there's always a road to travel, with many twists & turns, bumps in the road but true love can last, through anything, can't it?What a beautiful story that will touch your heart, Nate~ swoon.Can they right the wrongs when their path [...]

    • I was gifted an ARC of Forever Red in exchange for an honest review. Forever Red had me hooked from beginning to end. Nate/Neil and Lia heat up the pages in this friends-to-lovers story about second chances and forgiveness. I loved how the book started in present-day, but brought me back to their first high school encounter, the romantic relationship that followed, and, the falling out that happened between the two. Flash forward to present day: Nate is now the hottest country singer in the land [...]
