Eight years ago, Cooper was dating the hottest and most desired girl in Ash Falls and on his way to take over his father’s hotel empire –– the thing was, it wasn’t the life he wanted. The only way he could escape the life his parents had planned for him, was to give up the money and power that came with being a Chamberlin. And, that’s exactly what he planned to do. At the end of the Summer, he was going to leave it all behind, start a new life, on his own terms and without the influence that came with being a Chamberlin.
That was, before he met Emma.
Following her parents’ divorce, Emma is the rock for her alcoholic mother, and her younger sister. She appears resilient, and tenacious, but inside she’s falling apart. The only thing that keeps her going is her love for writing poetry, and that when she finally graduates High School, she’ll be able to start living the life she has always dreamed of.
Until she meets Cooper.
It was supposed to be a Summer fling. She had dreams of her own. Dreams that didn’t include him or his social circles. No one even knew they were friends, let alone lovers. Yet, for one Summer, Emma became Cooper’s entire world. And he, a reminder that love doesn’t have to come with warning signs.
Until one frightful night, when both of their lives, and the lives of the residents of Ash Falls, were turned upside down. Emma is left with one choice, run from the life she thought she didn’t want, and the guy who stole her heart.
But, when she returns six years she is faced with a devastating truth that shakes the very foundation that her life was built upon. Another has already claimed the man she loves.
Will true love prove the test of time?
Will cooper find his way without losing the things and people that matter to him the most?
Can Emma recover from life's lessons?
Could Emma and Cooper’s love survive when those closest to them keep tearing them apart?
Stay Tuned for “Once Upon A Forever”.
Wow what a book. This takes you upon such an amazing ride, the joys of first love, the depths of family relationships. This is told in past tense and in current time, not usually a type of book I enjoy the back and forth are sometimes too much, however with this book I was so involved with it that it didn’t bother me, like I thought it would.
