Forever My Girl by Heidi McLaughlin

I was never supposed to be a rock star. I had my life all planned out for me. Play football in college. Go to the NFL. Marry my high school sweetheart and live happily ever after.

I broke both our hearts that day when I told her I was leaving. I was young. I made the right decision for me, but the wrong decision for us. I've poured my soul into my music, but I've never forgotten her. Her smell, her smile.

And now I’m going back.

After ten years.

I hope I can explain that after all this time.

I still want her to be my forever girl.
Heather's review:

Forever My Girl:

Heidi McLaughlin
**4.25 Stars**

“You’re really good at what you do.”
Thank you,” I say bringing her hand to my lips. I place small kisses along her knuckles. I reluctantly let her hand go and pour us some more champagne.
“Are you trying to get me drunk?”
I give her my patent look. Her mouth drops open, her eyes glaze over. Josie has just met Liam Page.
Wow! Let me begin by saying I could not believe this is Heidi’s debut novel! I was hooked by 18%, and already contacting the author for an interview. Kellan Kyle started a new trend in the book world, rockstars became the “it” story. I was over it, to be honest. But I took a chance, and I am so glad I did. Now all I have to say is, Kellan Kyle who?!   
Liam Westbury left his life, and true love behind to become Liam Page, rockstar, ladies’ man and lost-love song specialist. When his best friend dies, Liam is forced to face the life he tried so hard to leave behind 10 years ago, which includes Josie Preston. Josie is engaged to a new man, and has a ten year old son she’s raising on her own. Still fighting the feelings she had for her first love, will she be able to steer clear of the man that broke her heart? Will Liam be able to let her move forward without him? Are all rockstars this sexy?  
This author took a rocker out of the typical setting of tour buses and groupies, and did something completely different. She took a few chances along the way. There was an obvious connection between the woman who recently lost her husband, and Liam’s band mate. You can see the next story evolving throughout, and it feels so natural. I really look forward to reading more from Heidi McLaughlin. She is a breath of fresh air in the indie world. There have not been many new authors with such great skill in recent months; she has proven after one novel she is one to keep your eye on.

First up on the playlist is Painkillers. This song is not on Spotify, but is a must-listen. It has a large part in the book:)
