I’ve met boys like him before. Rich. Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there is something different about him that piques my curiosity. The way he looks at me, like he is staring through the bars of a gilded cage he’s never left. Like he is one breath away from suffocating beneath a mound of responsibilities. He is different from the rest because he doesn’t wear his money… his money wears him. I just don’t think he knows it yet.
She’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. She’s everything I’ve never been able to be. Carefree. Whimsical. A dreamer. Her laugh is infectious. She is irresistible. I can’t help but be drawn to her with an intensity that steals my breath and muddles my senses. I want to know her, need to know her, but how can I allow myself that liberty when I don’t have the freedom to make my own choices?
Phillip and Maggie think they have it all. Even though they come from opposite backgrounds, they each have bright futures paved out, with no distractions holding them back.
Until the fateful day they meet each other.
After a brief, adventurous time together in The Hamptons, Maggie and Phillip find themselves saying goodbye just as the spark of love flashes intensely between them. Can their budding connection be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?
Maggie knows exactly what Phillip is. A silver spooned rich kid. Maggie is everything Phillip wishes he could be. She is a carefree fun loving teenager. The exact opposite of each other, but everything Phillip has longed to be. Phillip and Maggie and drawn to each other and end up spending every possible moment together even though they have to sneak around. Once their time is up they decide they will keep in touch by writing each other. Can their letters bring them through what is expected of them and the adventures they have or will they slowly drift apart?
When I started Love Always I wasn't sure what to expect and these authors did not disappoint. What an amazing story of two teenagers from two different worlds struggling to be what they want to be and what they are expected to be. We see two completely different worlds and parenting styles in this book. You see the struggles each goes through in their life, the decisions they have to make, the mistakes they make, the consequences they face, and how they push through to become the adults they will be in their lives. Oh and you get a great love story while they are doing this. My absolute favorite part of the book is the middle where we get to read letters. Great writing, an intriguing story line, young love, and lots of drama! What more could a person want! I find myself enjoying books who are written by more then one author to see if I can tell the difference in the story. These two flow together very well! Great book I look forward to reading each author individually as well as if they do more books together.
"I also wasn't 100% sure what to expect from it after I read the synopsis, but it was very beautiful and developed so well! The plot also really surprised me! I wasn't expecting the characters to be so different, but for their relationship to be so beautiful!" ~ Book Crazy
"I love this book and was gripped right the way through. I cannot thank Sonya and Candace enough for this story. I only hope they write many more together. They clearly have found a recipe for Success!!" ~ Goodreads Reviewer
"I loved the slow burn of the romance, and loved/hated the meddling that also went on throughout the book. (I don't want to spoil it for others, so I won't expand on this). There were quite a few twists and turns to the plot line which also kept me engaged." ~ Read Love Repeat
