Release Blitz ~ #Review ~ We Said Forever by Marie James

Cover Design: TE Black
Release Date: March 15, 2017

Synopsis
Rock bottom.
They say the only way to go from there is up, but what is “up” when you’re born into someone else’s rock bottom?
At ten, football became my first love. It’s what got me out of the house away from my self-destructive family. My love for football landed me at Las Vegas University with a full ride scholarship, and the orange on my jersey was my favorite color…until my eyes landed on the red dress Fallyn wore the night we met.
At twenty-one, I jumped off the cliff into the unknown the second Fallyn McIntyre danced in my arms at a party. I had the greatest girl in the world and the opportunity to play college ball every Saturday. My rock bottom was looking up, thanks to my two first loves.
Parties, sex, and football—life was perfect. But one drink too many, and my world came crashing down. When I chose pills over my second love, my head told me it was the best decision I ever made. The pills keep me warm and protect me from the distance Fallyn created. Percs don’t judge me. They make me feel alive.
Threes.
They say the best things come in threes, but one leads to a stable future, one is my salvation, and the other drags me to hell—a hell I’d willingly burn in for eternity…if it weren’t for my second love.

Review

"So Freaking Good!"

Those were the first words to come to mind and out of my mouth after I read the last words of this book. And those words don't even begin to do it justice.

Blaze and Fallyn took me through a gamut of emotions as I read their story. Blaze's childhood was heartbreaking and while I understood that suffering he had to overcome as a child to get where he was, he came across as a huge jerk when I first glimpsed him as an adult. My feelings changed back and forth so much as I read his actions and words after that though. But without hesitation my heart ended with me loving him.

Fallyn was this complex character that I really loved even when I sometimes wanted to shake her. She was so strong and at the same time vulnerable (especially to Blaze). I loved that even when her world was crashing down she still did what she needed to accomplished what she set out to when we first meet her in the story.

After finishing this I am in awe of Marie James. I don't know how she brought to life these amazing characters that just drew me in and held me spellbound watching their story unfold. I'm just so happy that she gave us readers this fantastic, heartwrenching, and just overall wonderful story. If I wasn't a huge fan before, I certainly would be now.
