Review: The Problem With Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout


Blurb:

For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory "Mouse" Dodge, it's a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it's been four years since her nightmare ended, she's beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime. 

Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone--spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she's imagined, there's one she never dreamed of--that she'd run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn't seen since childhood, on her very first day. 

It doesn't take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she's not the only one grappling with lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider's life spiral out of control, Mallory must make a choice between staying silent and speaking out--for the people she loves, the life she wants and the truths that need to be heard.

The problem with forever review 

Mallory and Rider have been through hell and back growing up. The abuse and neglect they endure as children was horrible. Rider was always protecting Mallory from The Monster. Eventually they are able to escape that horrible situation. Four years go by and they are reunited. Man, I loved when they reconnected and Rider called her Mouse. There was no denying their connection. Only problem is Rider has a girlfriend Paige. During this book we see Mallory and Rider both struggle with their past. Even though they aren't in that horrible place anymore the lingering effects are still there. Mallory suffers from bad anxiety and Rider doesn't feel like he's good enough or that he matters. It was so sad seeing how little they felt about themselves. No children should have to be brought up in that kind of environment. Seeing Mallory and Rider struggle to find themselves and finally achieving some peace made me happy. They still have a long way to go but it was nice to see them in a better place. My main issue with the book was the way it ended. When Mallory and Rider finally made progress the book was pretty much over. 474 pages and I don't have closure. I feel like certain areas dragged on and when we got to the good stuff the book was over. I was left incomplete after reading. I'm hoping we will get a novella or something to wrap up the loose ends. Even though I wasn't satisfied with the way it ended, it was an enjoyable read.

Book Tour: Anti-Stepbrother by Tijan

Blurb
He told me to 'settle, girl.'  He asked if 'something was wrong with me?'  He said I was an ‘easy target.’  That was within minutes when I first met Caden Banks.  I labeled him an *sshole, but he was more than that. Arrogant. Smug. Alpha. 
He was also to-die-for gorgeous, and my stepbrother’s fraternity brother. 
Okay, yes I was a little naive, a tad bit socially awkward, and the smallest amount of stalker-ish, but if Caden Banks thought he could tell me what to do, he had another thing coming. 
I came to college with daydreams about being with my stepbrother, but what would happen if I fell for the anti-stepbrother instead?
This is a story about a girl, her stepbrother and another guy who is the stepbrother’s complete opposite.  If it sounds like a cliché, I promise you it’s not.Summer is starting college and she’s going to the same college as Kevin, her stepbrother.  The small detail here? She’s had a crush on Kevin since HS, since before he became her stepbrot…
