That Forever Kinda Love

I am a sucker for best friends to forever love stories.  There is just something special about finding your forever love with the person who has known you through everything and still loves you.  Check out the blurb for Clara Stone's Forever Kinda Love.

Life’s. Little. Surprises.

The last thing seven-year-old Carrigan "Ace" Casper foresaw was an eight-year-old Heath Lovelly walking into her life the day her mother died. From that moment on, Heath sticks by her side, slowly becoming her strength, her confidant, and her entire world. What she doesn’t know is, she's his saving grace, too.

Ten years later, Ace is handed another crippling challenge that threatens everything in her almost perfect life. Only, this time, she doesn't turn to Heath, hiding the truth instead. But Heath knows Ace too well and won't back down easily. He's ready to do whatever it takes and will stay by her side until she accepts that their love is the kinda love worth fighting for.

Will he be her forever triumph or her unexpected downfall?

Two lives.

One story.

And an unexpected journey to falling in love.

In Forever Kinda Love Heath and Ace are the kind of best friends that know the good and the bad about each other.  Heath is that good looking guy that everyone wants, or in this story, has probably had.  Ace is his best friend, the girl who saved him, the one who he feels safest with.  Heath loves Ace, Ace loves Heath, yet no one is ready to step up to the plate and declare the feels.  While this story is a little predictable, it was just different enough to keep me reading, because at times I was really wondering if these two would ever figure it out and get together.  While this is a YA, it definitely has more of a NA feel.  The characters felt a little too mature for their age.  The only thing that bothered me was how close, even physically, Heath and Ace were as friends.  The touching, hand holding, present giving was just a little too unbelievable to me. Even though this kinda bugged me, it is also what made Heath swoon worthy and his feelings for Ace a little more believable.  Will I read another story by Clara Stone? Absolutely! She has a great voice, her stories flow, and her characters are likable.  Can't wait to see what her next book is about!
