Note: I received a free e-copy of the book in return for an honest review. All opinions in this review are my own.
It’s In His Forever is a short book about two people who love each other but have kept their relationship a secret for over a decade.
Sandra has always been blamed for the con act that her father pulled before leaving town and she has lived with it without revealing the truth. She has never been trusted by the townsfolk due to that incident.
Sandra doesn’t want to reveal her and Langston’s relationship for fear that he will be treated with mistrust only because he is with her. Langston has always gone along with it but is now done. He wants to show off Sandra and his relationship—if people can’t accept it, they can look away.
I found the book unimpressive. The plot wasn’t special or specifically unique. I wasn’t intrigued by it and, hence, wasn’t reading the book with interest. As the book was short, I wasn’t able to connect with any of the characters as well.
I also didn’t find much depth in the characters. I could describe the main characters in one line each, and that takes away any interest I could have in them.
Sandra was very boring. After all the amazing female leads I’ve read about, she falls very short. Sandra is stubborn about her decisions, refusing to budge, but I saw her give way easily suddenly. That completely turned me off. She wasn’t constant.
Langston was the typical charming alpha male who is loved by everyone. Langston was such a cliche and I could pretty much predict every move of his. I was never surprised and hence I never looked forward to reading more because I vaguely knew what would happen.
It was just okay. It was a short read with no highs and lows. If you’re invested in the series, you may like it, but I’d suggest skipping this one otherwise.
