Scared of Forever (Scared Series) {Book Review}

Title: Scared of Forever (Scared Series)

Author: Jacqueline Abrahams

Genre: New Adult

Book Description:

Every lie, no matter how small, has some degree of truth.

Five months after moving to New York City, Emily is engaged to Blake Carson, future doctor and the man who she believes to be the love of her life. Until she starts to realize that the foundation upon which she’s building her future is based on a series of Blake’s self-serving lies.

Blake can’t let her go. He can’t continue to deceive Emily, either. But Blake’s biggest problem is that he has to maintain the life he has become accustomed to, at any cost. And that means keeping his overbearing mother happy, and keeping Emily ignorant.

Tyler Carson left New York City two years ago, happy to leave behind all of the Carson family drama. Until he comes home and meets Emily. Falling in love with his brother’s fiancĂ©e was easy. Protecting her from his family was necessary. Leaving her was almost impossible, knowing that he was breaking her heart, and his own.

Finding solace in her friendship with Tyler, Emily is forced to face the reality that Blake is not the man she thought he was. But neither is Tyler, the friend who gave her the clarity she needed, and then left her alone to pick up the shattered pieces of her life. Heartbroken and deserted, Emily has had enough of the Carson brothers.

But sometimes, love is not that which sends us soaring, but that which keeps us grounded. Can Emily ever bring herself to love another Carson completely?

Secrets, lies and lust-filled nights, all in the name of the screwed-up pursuit of happily ever after, Scared of Forever is the second novel in the Scared Series, which features characters from Scared of Beautiful, but can be read as a standalone

My Review:

I thought Emily was the kind of girl who just needed to get away from everything she known,  and been through. So Emily packed up and left for the Big Apple. What she didn’t expect, was that life in New York wasn’t what it was all made up to be, until she met Blake.

I thought that Blake was your typical high profile socialite, a guy any girl would dream of. He is handsome and a doctor.  With the lifestyle Blake has been living, is the type where he got anything he wanted, especially women. But behind the limelight, Blake was possessive and pressured by the demands of his mother and in order to continue to live his lavish lifestyle, he must appease her demands.

I think that Scared of Forever, is probably the best in the Scared Series so far. The author has written a heartfelt, compelling romance novel, that will give you goose bumps and make you wanting more. I think that the  characters were very relatable.

 I give this book 4 Out of 5 Stars and  would recommend this to anyone who enjoys reading new adult romance novels, it’s an easy read and you definitely will not be disappointed! I can’t wait for the next book!
