Love Survives by Jennifer Foor Blog Tour with 4 1/2 star review









Imagine being in love with the same girl since you were ten years old, only to have her fall for your twin instead. This story is rocky.
It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.
I know this because it's my story.

The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again.  I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.

Sometimes love isn't enough.
Sometimes it takes a little fate.


ADD TO GOODREADS








Love isn’t always something we learn to feel or experience through years of heartbreak and personal experiences. Though it can grow stronger, people aren’t able to choose when it will happen. Sometimes, on rare instances, it becomes the only thing we live for; the reason we keep striving to move in a forward direction. In other instances, it can be the whole reason we exist in this world. That kind of rarity isn’t one to boast about. Loving someone with extreme compassion comes with great agony, and even more patience. Feeling as if you can’t breathe is only the beginning of what could occur when you’re emotions play a part in the existence of such a powerful word. There have been days where I’ve woken up and wished it wasn’t there, hounding me from the depths of my core. I’ve always considered myself a strong man; one that could withstand extreme amounts of despair without breaking down. I felt like I could get past it, however, learned quickly that it doesn’t work that way.
Imagine being in love with the same person since you were a young child, only to have them fall for your twin instead. This story I’m about to tell you is rocky.

The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again.  I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into Katy’s life.

There is one thing I’ve learned from all of this.

Sometimes love isn't enough.

Sometimes it takes a little fate, some bad experiences, and a lot of time.







Before I get started with my review, I need to let you know that I have not read the previous book in the series, Love's Suicide.

I felt so much compassion for Brooks. He's been in love with Katy since they were kids. His only problem is that he twin brother has been too. Katy chose his brother, Branch. He tolerated their relationship as best he could, but in eventually became too much. His choices weren't always the best but I could understand his actions. .

I kept hoping that fate would intercede and bring these two childhood friends back together. Just when it looked like they were going to get their chance, there was an unexpected plot twist.

The plot twist is my only complaint of the book. A new character is introduced, Bobby. He is described as such a selfless person. It was hard not to love him. But then he did a few things that just seemed out of character for him. I was just disappointed with that part.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Once I got started, I had a hard time putting it done, finishing it in one day. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good book to read.

















Get the beginning of the story with Love Survives



My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too na├»ve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was…

Would I give it to him

I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story.
