Matt is Not Giving Up On Forever (review)

Not Giving Up On Forever

by Yana Stevelork (@Stevelork)

"School days ended, so Anna gathered remaining strength and in search of healing moved to another city to study. But what was ahead frightened her even more than the youthful sufferings left behind."

Knowing me, knowing you. A-ha,,, What if Abba wrote a tale about a young, headstrong woman who is ruled by her heart rather than her head?

When Anna is unceremoniously let go by her first lover (and in her mind future husband) Mark – she goes off to Italy for a sex and fun-filled romp that will change her life – and put her in the middle of a love triangle. Falling for smooth local Randall seems like a good idea but once she returns home Anna is heartbroken again when he sleeps with someone else.

Determined to get revenge she returns to Italy and gets it on with his rival (the successful, rich DJ 'Teo') – cue adventures on a Mamma Mia scale with her trying to work out who among three men in her life, is her true love…

Not Giving Up On Forever is a fun romantic romp – not my normal ‘cup of tea’ by any means – but once you get past the imperfect English and basic writing style you’ll be hooked to find out if Anna can find true love swapping partners as she goes.

I talked to Yana the author about the inspiration for writing this novel - she said:

"I was observing that romance stories had either black or white story lines. Either it's a story with plain happy ending or some toxic relationship plot and main character was always totally relatable universal favourite, and I wanted to read something real... Where the character can make silly decisions, like in life... Mistakes... Or total craziness!"

There's not much more you need to know - if you're the type who enjoys a romantic tryst or 2 for your reading pleasure then step this way for a date with Anna...

Out of a potential 5 you have to go with a Darkmatters:


(3 - Fun, lightweight romantic euro-thrills...)
