About the book
Can love truly conquer all?

When a vicious attack leaves Paul in a coma on his wedding day, the doctors fear he will never wake up. But his fiancée Fran will never give up hope.

Fran has always known Paul is the only man for her, from the first moment they locked eyes as children to the day he finally told her he loved her. Paul can’t leave her, not now their lives are just about to begin. Love will always find a way… won’t it?
I'll admit I was expecting a different read based on the blurb and the cover. I was actually pleasantly surprised and recommended it to a friend before I had even finished reading the book.

The reader follows Fran on her path to adulthood, her first crush and kiss, and how she experiences the first throes of passion. The confusion she feels when she finds herself lusting one brother and loving the other one. Just the general befuddled state of any teenager during the great hormonal hike and emotional minefield of love, lust and crushes.

The story is about Fran accepting the love she feels and the man she loves, only to nearly lose him during a random act of violence. She finds it difficult to cope with the situation, she doesn't want to have to let go of him.

For me Almost Forever is much more than just a love story. It is a tale of hope, perseverance and about life after the worst case scenario. How a teenage infatuation grows into a fierce loving relationship. A no holds barred dissection of her life up to that point in time.

Danks brings emotions to the table, albeit with a fair bit of drama, and isn't afraid to shy away from what some readers really want and still deliver the predictable yet satisfying ending. Danks also brings the expected, and yet still manages to capture her readers and take them along for the duration of this very turbulent ride of emotions.

Buy Almost Forever at Amazon Uk or go to Goodreads for any other retailer.
