FOREVER INTERRUPTED by Taylor Jenkins Reid

“Have you ever heard of supernovas? They shine brighter than anything else in the sky and then fade out really quickly, a short burst of extraordinary energy. I like to think you and Ben were like that . . . in that short time, you had more passion than some people have in a lifetime.”
Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year’s Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn’t expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they’ve eloped.

Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met—and who doesn’t even know Elsie exists.

Interweaving Elsie and Ben’s charmed romance with Elsie and Susan’s healing process, Forever, Interrupted will remind you that there’s more than one way to find a happy ending. (Taken from Back Cover).

This book showed up on my doorstop. I hadn't requested it, hadn't heard of it. I saw blurbs by Amy Hatvany, author of Heart Like Mine and Sarah Pekkanen, author of The Best of Us. Well I love their books, so I thought I'd give the book a go. Forever Interrupted by Taylor Jenkins Reid was the biggest surprises in a long time! I absolutely loved this book!

The main character is Elsie, and you can't help but like her, feel for her. The chapters are current day moving forward and walk you back in time with her relationship to Ben. I found myself laughing during one chapter and crying the next chapter...almost the entire book! It's a love story, tender and really beautiful and on the other hand a story of healing. It reads really fast! I just don't know what else to say about the book, but go buy it! Highly recommending!
