Love Survives by Jennifer Foor ~ BLOG TOUR & REVIEW




Release Date: March 7th
Love Survives:
Imagine being in love with the same girl since you were ten years old, only to have her fall for your twin instead. This story is rocky.
It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.
I know this because it's my story.
The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again.  I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into her life.
Sometimes love isn't enough.
Sometimes it takes a little fate.

Review by: Sam 

When I read Love Suicide, my heart was pretty much removed from my body, twisted and stamped on! My heart....COMPLETELY shattered! It was a story of such devastation and heartbreaking sadness that it took me a long time to get over it. Kat endured so much hurt, pain and continuous obstacles to move forward with her life. Sooooooo, going into Love Survives, I was incredibly nervous. But after putting my big girl panties on and opening my heart to the feels, Jennifer Foor did not disappoint. I adored Brooks in the first book, his fierce forever love for Kitty Kat! Therefore getting his side of the story was an absolute MUST for me!
I have been taken on ANOTHER soul consuming and deeply emotional journey and have fallen completely in love with Brooks all over again. I loved being able to complete the puzzle from book one, like what happened when Brooks was deployed?! I finally got my answers and those were all parts of this story that I was dying to know.
I highly recommend reading Love Suicide first, before diving heart first into this read.
It will break you, it will consume you and it will HEAL you.

Review by: Cristina 

I enjoy reading from a male’s perspective and was excited to find out that Brooks Valentine’s version from the first book, “Love Suicide (Love Suicide #1)” was coming out! We learn then that when Brooks is in love with you he falls for you HARD…emotionally and physically. 

I would have told her after our first kiss that she was going to be my future.

Best friend and his first love, Katy Michaels was the girl Brooks knew was the one for him but being young and naïve he believed that she did not feel that way about him because his twin brother, Branch kept telling him that is what she is always telling him. That in turn held him back constantly in officially declaring his feelings and his brother pursing more of a relationship with her. Though early on, Brooks would sense something more (or hoping) from Katy but nothing more permanent would come from it because his twin brother was always in the way.

"Does he know you’re in love with me?”

However, no matter how much time has past and even being together and engaged with his twin brother the love for her never falters. But how long is to too long to hold out for someone that you cannot have and/or may not feel the same way about you? 

"How long have you been in love with me, Brooks?” I smiled. “That question isn’t going to get answered.”

I got to experience a roller coaster of highs and lows on Brooks life since he was still a kid and the emotional heartaches and hardships that he faced. I loved reading from his POV especially since it gave me a better sense of his frame of mind on the decisions in his life making this story come full circle. I was more wrecked and overwhelmed by this beautiful being this time around. Total DIBS on this Military man and his 5 stars book!

Review by: Leeann 

If you have read Love’s Suicide, you will be familiar with The Branch, Brookes & Katy love triangle.
This is the same story but told from Brookes’s POV.
Being from Brookes POV, the only real difference between the 2 books is that we get to see what happened to Brookes while on his tour of duty & what he went through while he was over there.

It is interesting to see the same events from another book through a different characters eyes.
Jennifer Foor is an absolute star. She writes beautiful love stories and includes just enough of the
right ingredients to make it well worth the read, so, although I had already read this story in Love’s Suicide
she was able to still make it interesting enough for me to want to keep reading until the end.

Even though I knew how the story ended, I still found myself teary while I was reading the last page!!

If you like stories about wrongs being made right no matter the consequences and true love prevailing
then you will most certainly enjoy this story!!

Love’s Suicide


My heart belonged to Branch and Brooks Valentine since we were children, when we were all too naïve to know what that even meant. We didn’t understand that when we became adults, love would change us. I had to make a choice and when I did, it ripped our bond apart. Brooks left town, and he took half of my heart with him. It was difficult, but I coped and planned my future with Branch. I thought I’d made the right decision. I loved him and I always had.

Brooks showed up to be our best man the night before our nuptials. After drinks and too much reminiscing, I ended up in bed with the wrong brother. To avoid the humiliation and the fact that I’d ruined all of our lives, I left Branch and the only family I’d ever known.

That’s where my story should have ended.

Two years, one beautiful little girl and an abusive marriage later, I was standing there staring at the man that would always hold my heart.

The only question was…

Would I give it to him

I’m Katy Michaels and this is my story. 



EXCERPT:

Love isn’t always something we learn to feel or experience through years of heartbreak and personal experiences. Though it can grow stronger, people aren’t able to choose when it will happen. Sometimes, on rare instances, it becomes the only thing we live for; the reason we keep striving to move in a forward direction. In other instances, it can be the whole reason we exist in this world. That kind of rarity isn’t one to boast about. Loving someone with extreme compassion comes with great agony, and even more patience. Feeling as if you can’t breathe is only the beginning of what could occur when you’re emotions play a part in the existence of such a powerful word. There have been days where I’ve woken up and wished it wasn’t there, hounding me from the depths of my core. I’ve always considered myself a strong man; one that could withstand extreme amounts of despair without breaking down. I felt like I could get past it, however, learned quickly that it doesn’t work that way.
Imagine being in love with the same person since you were a young child, only to have them fall for your twin instead. This story I’m about to tell you is rocky.
It will rip you apart and possibly put you back together again.
I know this because it's my story.
The pain and anguish experienced in this is what it was like to hold onto hope that some day we'd find each other again.  I won't sugar coat the details of what I went through to have her, nor will I apologize for any actions that led me right back into Katy’s life.
There is one thing I’ve learned from all of this.
Sometimes love isn't enough.
Sometimes it takes a little fate, some bad experiences, and a lot of time.
