Forever Innocent

Forever Innocent 
 4 of 5 stars false 
"Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again."
Corabelle doesn’t feel like any of the other college girls. On what should have been one of the happiest nights of her life, she and her boyfriend Gavin watched a nurse disconnect the ventilator from their seven-day-old baby. During the funeral two days later, Gavin walked out and never returned.
Since then, her life has been a spiral of disasters. The only thing that has helped is her ability to black out whenever the pain gets too hard to bear, a habit that has become an addiction.
When Gavin shows up in her astronomy class four years later, he is hell-bent on getting her back, insisting she forgive him. Corabelle knows she can’t resist the touch that fills the empty ache that has haunted her since he left. But if he learns what she has done, if he follows the trail back through her past, her secrets will destroy their love completely. And once again, she’ll lose the only person who always believed she was innocent.

"Our baby died on prom night, and nothing was ever the same again."
Gavin and Corabelle have a past that no one at their new school knows, and if they have anything to say about it things will stay that way. Both of them are looking for a new start at the college they dreamed of attending since they were children. However, after a tragic lost of a child that had signified all their hopes and dreams and going their separate ways, they never envisioned it to be together. Now they're faced with the question, is there such a thing as a second chance when two people have been through so much?
I knew this book was going to be filled with tears but I never expected something so beautiful. Gavin and Corabelle are some of the most touching characters you'll meet, realistic with their heartbreak palatable. The journey these two take leaves you glued to the pages. The writing is smooth and creative. The way the loss of their child is handled is written as only a mother that has gone through the heartbreak can express, raw laced with the sharp end of a knife. Pages will just fly by as you follow this young couple on their journey of healing and love.
