I received this book for free from in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Darlene Montgomery has been to hell and back…more than once. After a stint in jail for drug possession, she is finally clean and ready to start over. Yet another failed relationship is just the motivation she needs to move from New York to San Francisco with the hopes of resurrecting her dance career and discovering that she is more than the sum of her rap sheet. As Darlene struggles in her new city, the last thing she wants is to become entangled with her handsome—but cranky—neighbor and his adorable little girl...

Sawyer Haas is weeks away from finishing law school, but exhaustion, dwindling finances, and the pressure to provide for himself and his daughter, Olivia, are wearing him down. A federal clerkship--a job he desperately needs--awaits him after graduation, but only if he passes the Bar Exam. Sawyer doesn’t have the time or patience for the capricious—if beautiful—dancer who moves into the apartment above his. But Darlene’s easy laugh and cheerful spirit seep into the cracks of his hardened heart, and slowly break down the walls he’s resurrected to keep from being betrayed ever again.

When the parents of Olivia’s absentee mother come to fight for custody, Sawyer could lose everything. To have any chance at happiness, he must trust Darlene, the woman who has somehow found her way past his brittle barbs, and Darlene must decide how much of her own bruised heart she is willing to give to Sawyer and Olivia, especially when the ghosts of her troubled past refuse to stay buried.


There are some authors who can write anything and I will read it, Emma Scott is one of them. When I met her in Berlin earlier this year,  I told her she could publish the phone book under her name and I would buy it, no questions asked. 

So when she announced her new book, Forever Right Now, was a slow burn my heart broke. I hate slow burn with a passion. To me, it’s not romantic in a book, but perfect in real life. But since Ms. Scott wrote it, I knew I had to give it a chance and it’s a good thing I did. I would have missed out on a beautiful book and one of the best, if not the best female character Ms. Scott has ever written. Darlene Montgomery is known from ms Scott’s previous book The Butterfly Project and I for one fell in love with this slightly damaged girl who needed to find love to fill the void in her soul. That void gets filled through a brilliant slow burn relationship between her and Sawyer, and his adorable little girl Olivia. Sawyer Haas is everything anyone could ever want in a man, and nearly perfection which is why Darlene doesn’t consider herself worthy of him. But the slow push and pull of their attraction and the way their relationship grow is inspirational. I found myself dragging out this book simply because I was afraid of reaching the ending.
This book is a true testament to the incredible author that is Emma Scott and Forever Right Now deserves 5 beautiful stars.
