“Real love stories—the ones worth telling—they never end.”

Between Now and Forever is the first in Dylan Allen’s ‘Forever’ trilogy and OMG this book! There was so much drama (the best kind) and it was so addicting. I cannot wait to see where the rest of this story goes!

Elisabeth feels alone in the world. Aside from her brother, she doesn’t have many people to count on or anyone who truly sees her for who she is. She’s out one night (something she never does), which turns out to be a hot mess, except for the moment where she meets Carter.

I loved the meet between Beth and Carter. Scenes like that make me believe in love at first site. There is a lot that is going on in both of their lives through this book, but that night together will always be special to them. It will carry them through a lot.

Love is messy. Life is messy. The love story between Beth and Carter will be messy. I can tell. There were a few parts in this book that made me tear up. There were also ones that made me smile so big. And quite a few that made me fan myself. It had that angst that keeps you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next and how everything will turn out. I’m not sure, but I know we’re going to be in for one heck of a ride.

Dylan Allen’s writing has this captivating quality. Her books suck me in, and this one was no exception. I’m so happy books two and three will be out soon, because I am so anxious to find out where Carter and Beth’s story goes! If you’re looking for a fast paced, steamy, all consuming read- this is the book for you!!


“Keep it. A little something to remember me.”

“So…are we, like, going to be like…boyfriend and girlfriend?”

Her eyes are expectant and suddenly, breathing feels a little harder. Those words make me think of things like explanations and disappointment. I’m not sure that I can be intimate with anyone. And what happens when she finds out about everything? She’ll be horrified. Or when I start back on the show and that whole world crowds in on us… she’ll get tired of it and walk away. Or I’ll be weak and break even more of my own rules and end up hurting her.

“Let’s not put any labels on it.”

Her eyes lose some of their sparkle, but she smiles gamely. “Well, no matter what we call it, the last few days have been awesome. I know a side of myself that I didn’t before.”

“How do you mean?”

“I mean, now I know, that given the chance, I can sit down with people I don’t know and have a great conversation. I’ve never been anywhere, but here. And now I’m going to get to travel with you—even though I’ll be seeing it through your phone’s camera. Meeting you was really good luck.”Oh yeah…The cheesecake.

I’m ruined. I brush my lips very lightly across hers and smile when she whimpers. God, I’m going to miss her.

“I promise, I’ll call.” It doesn’t make my heart race to say it.

“Don’t promise, Carter. Those are bound to be broken. Just do it.”Her eyes turn solemn and I see that she and disappointment are intimate friends. I want to break them up.
