How FOREVER WITH YOU is a debut novel is beyond me! High school sweethearts with a second chance at love? Yes please!! Leyna Milan and Jay Wynter can’t deny the attraction is still there, but Leyna is surely not ready to have her heart broken by Jay once again. All Leyna wants to do is have the chance to prove to her family that she is capable of running her family’s restaurant as well as open a new one. Jay doesn’t know if he will be staying in Sapphire Springs, but wants to prove to Leyna that he has changed and is now a certified grown up! Ha! Hang on to your seats people. You know how this is going to go right?

Jay also needs to prove to his grandfather that is serious about taking over the family vineyards. FOREVER WITH YOU throws the reader for a loop when something tragic happens in the Wynter family that shakes everyone to their core. The secrets that come out afterwards are huge and affect everyone! All Leyna has to do is push forward, ignore Jay and the feelings he stirs up inside of her and honor her Grandfather’s wishes. What could possible go wrong? All of Barb’s characters feel genuine and relatable and put your emotions on one heck of a roller coaster ride. As you are reading, you will find yourself cheering for all of them, praying they can work out their problems and be happy once again.

FOREVER WITH YOU by Barb Curtis is the first book in the Sapphire Spring series and it is the perfect small town romance. I read it fairly quickly and have the next two in the series ready to go. The romance that is growing between Jay and Leyna is not rushed. They take their time to work through their history together and find themselves falling for each other again as adults. It is a sweet romance with wonderful secondary characters and the troubles they are facing are realistic.  FOREVER WITH YOU had me flipping pages like mad, grinning endlessly and laughing and giggling out-loud more times than I could count! It is insanely well-written. Barb Curtis has an absolute gift with words and I still can’t believe this is her first novel. Her writing style is so effortless, you feel like you are right in the head of the main characters.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Forever and Grand Central Publishing through Netgalley. All opinions expressed are my own and were voluntarily given.


From debut author, Barb Curtis, a heartwarming small-town romance about high school sweethearts who return home and discover that first love sometimes gets a second chance. . .

Jay Wynter wants to be successful on his own merit. That’s why he left Sapphire Springs and his family’s winery to build a career from scratch. But now that he’s successor to Wynter Estate, Jay must return to his small hometown to face everything, and everyone, he left behind-especially his high school sweetheart, who happens to be his stunning new business partner . . .

Leyna Milan knows family legacies come with strings attached, but she’s determined to prove that she can run her family’s restaurant. Of course, Leyna never expected that honoring her grandfather’s wishes meant opening a second location on her ex’s property-or having to ignore Jay’s sexy grin and guard the heart he shattered years before. But as they work closely together, she begins to discover that maybe first loves deserve a second chance . . .

Thank you for stopping by and have a fantastic Friday!🌻📚🌻
