Review & Giveaway: And Then Forever by Shirley Jump

And Then Forever
Fortune’s Island # 1
By: Shirley Jump
Releasing July 28, 2015
TKA Distribution


Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.

Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.

Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.

But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen on a hot summer night.

My thoughts...

I will let you in on a little secret, you've got to promise not to tell anyone! (I know I can count on you) Years ago I read a book by Shirley Jump for my book club and I didn't care for the main female character at all and never read a book by her again.

It wasn't that I found the books story to be bad, or it to be badly written, it was just her...

When I saw that a book of Jumps was up for review I thought maybe I should try her again. I'm happy to say that I'm glad I did. I really enjoyed And Then Forever. I liked the characters (a must for me) and thought the story line was good.

Darcy is such a good mom and she works so hard, you can't help after knowing her story to be proud of all she's accomplished in her life.

I also liked Kincaid and what he did for his sister. I did think sometimes he needed to grow a pair.

The only negative I had about the story is that I wish they told their daughter about Kincaid being her father sooner in the story. I'd have liked more interaction between them. Other then that, I will defiantly read the next book in the story. I'm happy that I tried her again. Now I might have to go back and see what I missed. 

If you've read a book by Shirley Jump I'd love to hear your thoughts. Happy reading!
