Blog Tour Review + Giveaway: Beginning With Forever by Lan LLP

 Beginning with Forever

Love isn't easy to forget even if you’re determined to never feel it again. It has a way of finding you when all hope is gone, resurfacing tender emotions you've buried deep in your core because the pain of acknowledging them is too much for you to handle.

Carson Bradley, CEO of a powerful pharmaceutical corporation is rich beyond boundaries with a missing soul. His heart faded away fifteen years ago with the death of his first love.He strives every day for the sake of his cancer research because he’s determined to eradicate it forever.

Lillian Ly is a humble, young medical student whose kind and generous heart is as vast as the universe. Being raised poor by a single parent; she matured quickly and respected the sacrifices her mother made for her. Lillian’s determination leads her down a stringent five-year path with no room for love.
When their paths cross at an unlikely place thousands of miles away from home, they both realize that fate has brought them together, and Carson will never let anything or anyone tear them apart. He knows how desolate life is without love and refuses to return to that empty place ever again.

Lillian enters Carson’s world with the purest intention of loving him with all her heart, but discovers that his volatile world will alter her uncomplicated life indefinitely. Regardless of what obstacles are thrown in their path, Lillian and Carson will endure them all to hold onto their forever from the beginning to the end.

My Thoughts: What a sweet love story this was! I was immediately hooked into the plot and characters. It was almost a perfect love story. Like the title said, this book is only the beginning.

This book was engrossing. I liked how the author was able to create sad situations into positive ones. There were twists and turns, as well, throughout the story that had me captivated. However, there were a few moments that I did find myself struggling with what was happening. These parts did not deter me though from continuing reading the book. I was curious to know how everything was going to end.

Next, the characters were well written. I could easily picture the main characters, Lillian and Carson. I loved how they were different yet very similar at the same time. Both were in the medical field but Lillian was more cautious in the relationship while Carson knew exactly what he wanted. I really enjoyed reading them as a couple. 

Other than some moments being a struggle for me to read, I had mix feelings about the ending. It was too sad for me. I don't know if it was a good thing or a bad thing. It was definitely a cliffhanger, which made me wonder what the next book would be about, but I would have liked to have read something else. I don't know, I guess I really liked the idea of the possibility of Lillian and Carson becoming something bigger. 

Overall, this was a beautiful tale. There were struggles but there were also many wonderful moments. Once I get over the ending, I think I would like to try reading the second book. I rate it:

~Meet The Author~
Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen to jot down the first sentence of my vivid imagination. Those initial words were the seeds that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart.If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate the villain with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, and drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I've succeeded my goal.
I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t smirk! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or in my book,Mr. Hot Billionaire, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become a reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.
