I have read a lot of romance novels that I deemed “epic” and I have also featured them on the blog. However, there is one I haven’t yet and I can’t really recall why I haven’t gushed all over this one. This novel left a deep impact on me. I did a re-read recently, something I rarely do, but I did it for this one because I wanted to feel that emotionally engaging experience once again.

Few love stories get to me but Cameron and Lucy’s did. I never aspired for true love before but after reading their story, I wanted one of my own. Maybe not as heartbreaking as theirs but as beautiful nonetheless. Warning: you will be needing a pack–or two–of tissues for this one. (A separate review can be found here.)

More Than Forever

by Jay McLean

Genre: New Adult


“Because it’s eternal, the rise and fall of the sun. It’s forever. Just like us.”


There is a love so fierce it cannot be measured.
A heart so strong it will never slow.
There is a promise so sure it can never lie.
He promised me that love forever.
Even when it wasn’t enough.

Forever. Everlasting. Eternal.
There is no measure of time.
No sounds of the ticking of a clock.
Just the rising and falling of the sun.
And our own sense of forever.

But our forever isn’t always.
