Review : Fast Forward

Fast Forward by Marion Croslydon

New Adult Contemporary Romance No Cliffhanger, HEA
From the Amazon bestselling author of No Reverse comes a moving story about love, redemption and what happens when life switches to fast forward.

Cassie learned the hard way: Love forgives… in the end.

In No Reverse, Josh and Cassie’s epic love story went from the brink of destruction to a fragile new beginning. Now they must mend their broken family and win back the son they gave up five years ago.

But second chances need to be earned and the road ahead is rocky. With Cassie on tour and Josh trying his hand at a political career, the struggle becomes clear. When the adoption takes a bad turn, Cassie and Josh are prepared to give up everything for the fight of their lives.

Will this young family finally heal the years of heartache, or will they be torn apart for good?

There is no cliffhanger.


My Thoughts:

No relationship is perfect. Josh and Cassie are finally getting everything they want: Cassie was able to get on tour, Josh is working on politics and they are in the process of adopting Luke. When a tragedy strikes the process is of adoption is speeding up. One after another things start getting in their way and old pasts are getting trudged back up possibly ruining their chances of getting Luke. Will they be able to handle what comes their way?

I loved this book, there was so much drama, twists and turns to keep the readers guessing. I loved the characters and how this book turned out. I don't want to repeat the same thing I did for the last review on No Reverse so this review will be shorter. Trust me when I say No Reverse and Fast Forward should be on your TBR list. I highly recommend you lovely readers to check out this book. I can't wait to see what happens I was curious to see what was up with Lenor and Zach and I'm also curious about Sam so I'll be sure to keep my eye on this author.

No Reverse By Marion Croslydon

Second Chances, Book #1
A girl who needs to undo the past.
A boy who wants to forget it.
In love, there’s no way back.

At high school in Steep Hill, Kansas, Cassie O’Malley and Josh MacBride were the poster couple for quarterback/cheerleader romance until they starred in their own tale of teen pregnancy. No need to say: their shotgun wedding was low-key. But when there was no baby anymore, they went their separate ways.

Five years later, Josh has breezed through Georgetown and is about to finish his post-grad degree at Oxford University. He is set to join a lobbying group on Capitol Hill, owned by his new fiancĂ©e’s father. For Josh, the sky is now the limit… only he must first take care of a tiny legal matter: technically, he’s still married to the girl who broke his heart.

Meanwhile, Cassie has been waiting tables in Steep Hill to pay for her sick grandmother’s care. On the day of the old lady’s funeral, Cassie is served with two sets of papers. Josh is asking for a divorce. Her heart squeezes, but, well, he moved on a long time ago. But the second envelope shakes Cassie to the core. So, for the first time, she leaves Kansas and heads to good ol’ England.

There, Cassie finds that Josh has not just “moved on,” he’s freakin’ engaged to some blue-blooded heiress. The feelings Cassie had buried deep rush back to her. But no matter if he keeps thrusting the divorce papers under her nose, she needs him to save the only person she loves more than Josh, more than life itself…


My Thoughts:

Cassie knew when she got pregnant at a very young age things would be tough but would be able to make things ok with her boyfriend Josh. There was many factors why she decided to give Josh up but when she found out that he got accepted to a college and knew he would give it up to be with her she didn't want that. To let him go off to do better things she told him that she had an abortion to make it easier for him to go.

Couple years later Cassie is served some divorce papers at the worst possible time. Rather then filling it out and sending it back, she wanted to reveal a secret that she kept from him: she had a boy and the kid was adopted. In order to get her boy back she must convince Josh that they should play happy family so social services can give her back her child. Whats the worse that can happen?

I loved how unique and original this book was. Cassie was so selfless. I loved how she wasn't selfish and put others before her. While I was reading this book I couldn't believe how crazy she was to think her plan would work. I loved that there was two point of views, it helped me understand and love the characters even more because I can get why they did what they did. I thought the characters were interesting. I am really looking forwards to seeing what happens in the next book : Fast Forward. Overall is was a unique and interesting story and I highly recommend you lovely readers check this book out.
Marion loves to share happy vibes, talk book crush, fictional boyfriends and sexual chemistry with like-minded people. And because she spends most of her days on her own deep inside her writing cave, you are welcome to come and say “hello” from time to time. Just to make sure she doesn't sink into insanity. Her friends, family and arch-enemies (there are quite a few) will be forever grateful for your help.
