Teaser Tuesday: The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Ambrosia of The Purple Booker.
To play along just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
  • Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

The Problem with Forever by Jennifer L. Armentrout.

The Problem with Forever –
Harlequin Teen

“You have the power over that. People can say crap. They can think whatever they want, but you control how you feel about it”
— Chapter 17

Forever wasn’t real.
And I guessed, for me, that I was lucky it wasn’t. But for others, I wished it was real, that they had forever.
— Chapter 35




Didn’t we all have that one kid in our class, who could have been nicknamed mouse for all they ever said? Or maybe we were the ones on the silent side? Most quiet kids have their reasons for being like that. Sometimes it’s shyness and sometimes it’s for protection and sometimes it is something completely unfathomable. Whatever the reason it’s always worth it to listen when these people have something to say even if it’s not always easy to coax it out of them.
Jennifer L. Armentrout has a talent for writing very engaging romances and adventure types, but she’s also proven that she can construct compelling realistic stories as well. This book has quite a few elements from the problem-spectrum as I like to call it (like unhappy childhoods due to money struggles or abuse or alcohol problems ...), but it manages them quite well and in addition to that also creates a capturing scenario of character development and (because it wouldn’t be a Jennifer Armentrout book without it) a very sweet love story. Add to that her trademarked charm and witty dialogues and you have what I think is one of the author’s best books to date.

Are you a person to break the silence or more a silence is golden type? Share your thoughts and teasers in the comments!
