Real love stories, the ones worth telling, never end.
He was searching for the truth.
I was living a lie.
Our paths should never have crossed.
But, when we kissed it felt like destiny.
Falling in love was messy.
We broke rules we should have followed.
We made promises we couldn’t keep.
Forever felt impossible.
Heartbreak was inevitable.
Always would cost us everything.

This is not a fairytale.
This is a love story.

“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.    

**ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**

Between Now and Forever is the first book in the Forever Trilogy and the beginning of Elisabeth & Carter's love story. I absolutely loved the way Beth and Carter met, and how he interacted with her. I especially liked that he adjusted his approach when he started to get an idea of her personality. Both characters have their own struggles, doubts, and dreams. There was a real connection between the characters, however it really was in the early stages. So I really look forward to seeing it grow in the upcoming two books. They are both young and especially Beth is someone who has been secluded and a bit naive, so she is experiencing a lot of things for the first time ever. She is not timid though, and I was happy to see some growth in her in this book.

There were some pretty heartbreaking scenes in this book, but also a lot of uplifting ones. The making out scenes were hot and heavy, and I always enjoy the ones Dylan writes. Overall, I think this book was a great introduction to the characters and their story. I really look forward to what will happen in the next book after the cliffhanger ending, which I didn't see coming. The pace of the story is great, and I love Dylan's writing style. I also love the characters she has created for this trilogy. There is some drama, but it didn't really bother me that much in this book. I look forward to all the angst, heartbreak, romantic and swoon-worthy moments in the rest of the trilogy.
