Blog Tour, Review, & Giveaway: Forever Innocent by Deanna Roy

Title: Forever Innocent 
Author: Deanna Roy
Publication DateOctober 1st 2013
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
“Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again.”

Corabelle doesn’t feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.

Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.

When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she’ll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.


I was provided an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Not sure where to begin with this one. The synopsis tells you that the couple in this story has a very sad past. However, nothing prepares you for this heartbreaking story. It was seriously one of my favorite love stories, ever. Everything was heartfelt and deep. Words cannot express the emotions the author allows the reader to feel as you read this story.
Corabelle and Gavin lost their baby on their high school prom night. On the day of the funeral, Gavin walks away from Corabelle leaving her to grieve alone. Years later, they end up meeting again in college. When they realize they are in the same place at the same time, neither knows how to act. There is so much hurt and confusion that exists between them that seeing each other for the first time in years, is overwhelming.
This emotional story takes you on a journey as you watch two hurt and broken individuals try to love again. The baby brought them closer together, as his death tore them apart. Could fate have brought them together? Is this their second chance at love? If you are a fan of second chance romances this is for you. However, it is not a light read. It is dark and emotional as you are given both POV of Gavin and Corabelle. You understand how they both feel about their relationship and how the death of the baby haunts them, even years later. You watch them battle their inner demons as they try to give in to love.
This story was well-written and I enjoyed the flow of the story. I had a hard time wanting to put it down because I needed to know what happened next. I am excited that there will be more books in this series. Characters like Gavin and Corabelle deserve more than one book. The hurt that they are currently experiencing is going to take time to heal. I look forward to the rest of their story as they hopefully not only move toward healing, but also, love.
