Love Always by Sonya Loveday & Candace Knoebel ~ PRE-ORDER BLITZ & REVIEW

Title: Love Always
Author: Sonya Loveday and Candace Knoebel
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: August 25, 2015

I’ve met boys like him before. Rich. Bored. Always wearing a silver-spooned smile. But there is something different about him that piques my curiosity. The way he looks at me, like he is staring through the bars of a gilded cage he’s never left. Like he is one breath away from suffocating beneath a mound of responsibilities. He is different from the rest because he doesn’t wear his money… his money wears him. I just don’t think he knows it yet.
She’s like nothing I’ve ever seen before. She’s everything I’ve never been able to be. Carefree. Whimsical. A dreamer. Her laugh is infectious. She is irresistible. I can’t help but be drawn to her with an intensity that steals my breath and muddles my senses. I want to know her, need to know her, but how can I allow myself that liberty when I don’t have the freedom to make my own choices?
Phillip and Maggie think they have it all. Even though they come from opposite backgrounds, they each have bright futures paved out, with no distractions holding them back.
Until the fateful day they meet each other.
After a brief, adventurous time together in The Hamptons, Maggie and Phillip find themselves saying goodbye just as the spark of love flashes intensely between them. Can their budding connection be enough to survive the pulling tides of change, or will they drift apart before they even have a chance to explore what could have been?

Review by: Tracy 

Philip and Maggie meet while Philip is on vacation with his family.  2 seemingly normal teenagers who are VERY different from each other. Maggie who grew up with loving parents telling her she can be and do anything she wants. Philip whose parents are cold and have a life planned out for him.

So, what could 2 teenagers from opposite sides of the track possibly have in common? Not much then you ask Philip's parents but everything when you ask them. Maggie teaches Philip about life and how amazing it can be when you create your own path and follow your dreams.

Philip must lose himself, and Maggie, in order to discover who he really is.

First, I really did like this book. It had a great storyline and was easy to want to see what happened between the characters. I had a huge disconnect with them. There could have been more character development. It was hard to connect with them. The storyline felt rushed because of it.

3.5 Stars 

Review by: Dawn 

This book is a very fun read. It hits on a lot of different levels. There is the rich family that stops at nothing to get what they want. Even if its at the expense of their son's happiness. 
Than you have the Lower class family that works hard for what they have. They are carefree and happy with working towards  their goals.
When the 2 young adults meet their is sparks flying every which way. But other people are trying to make sure that they stay apart.
This book had some shocking twist that I didn't see coming. I loved the way these 2 young adults were working on discovering themselves and trying to put distance between the ones keeping them apart. this is a book that many young people will read and stop to think about the way things are. I loved the ending and couldn't think of a better way to end it.

3.5 Stars 

"I also wasn't 100% sure what to expect from it after I read the synopsis, but it was very beautiful and developed so well! The plot also really surprised me! I wasn't expecting the characters to be so different, but for their relationship to be so beautiful!" ~ Book Crazy
"I love this book and was gripped right the way through. I cannot thank Sonya and Candace enough for this story. I only hope they write many more together. They clearly have found a recipe for Success!!" ~ Goodreads Reviewer
"I loved the slow burn of the romance, and loved/hated the meddling that also went on throughout the book. (I don't want to spoil it for others, so I won't expand on this). There were quite a few twists and turns to the plot line which also kept me engaged." ~ Read Love Repeat
