And Then Forever
by Shirley Jump
Contemporary, Romance

Welcome to Fortune’s Island, where the only rule is to follow your heart.

Love is an extravagance Darcy Williams can’t afford. She prefers the simple life, which includes waitressing at The Love Shack on Fortune’s Island and avoiding temptation. But when a forbidden part of her past steps off the ferry, her safe, guarded existence is turned upside down.

Kincaid Foster has never gotten over his first love. When he sees the wild, beautiful blonde again, dancing her way around The Love Shack, the memories of Darcy’s soft skin, gentle touch, and heated kisses come rushing back. As the privileged son of a wealthy family, Kincaid was too young to stand up to his overbearing father when he and Darcy were together. Now, he’s back on the island—free of the family shackles—and the chiseled, big-time lawyer wants a second chance.

But, Darcy made a promise to keep a secret from Kincaid—a secret that is now a six-year-old girl who looks just like her daddy. If Kincaid finds out about their daughter, Darcy could lose everything. But, she can’t resist the man who stole her heart all those years ago. And it doesn’t take long before both of them realize that anything can happen at The Love Shack on a hot summer night.

 Darcy and Kincaid may have started loving each other at the wrong time but no one could ever say that their love was not true. They may have left each other, but the distance served for them to know more about themselves, who they are and who they can be. 

I like how the story between the two characters flow. It showed their past and the ways they grew from the time they were apart. And yet, Darcy would never forget Kincaid as he left behind a permanent reminder; their daughter Emma. The distance made Darcy stronger while Kincaid still struggled to find affirmation from his parents. Going back to Fortune's Island made Kincaid realize who he truly is and what he must do to find acceptance in himself. Meeting Darcy and finding about Emma strengthened his resolve. 

Both characters are remarkable in their own right. Darcy became more grounded than the wild child she was from her teenage days. And with Kincaid, he became more firm with what he wants. He learned to face up to his goals even without the affirmation he generally wanted. And yet, there was that scene in the book that had touched my heart where he did get the acceptance he wanted. I just wish there was more moments with Emma as they live out to be the parents she deserves.

And Then Forever shows the importance of family, finding your identity, learning to accept oneself and accepting the love of others they give to you.
