Forever My Lady is a story about Dio, who has to go to a prison boot camp. He loves a childhood sweetheart named Jennifer. What he goes through in boot camp is interesting, as are the people who are also there. I thought it had a pretty good ending and it says "to be continued." This is a short, quick book that I recommend. I look forward to a sequel.

Karen Says: Real World Romance From A Man's Perspective
I liked Forever My Lady by Jeff Rivera, because it's not your typical romance. It's about Dio, a Latino gang member called Playboy, whose girlfriend, Jennifer, got shot six times in a drive by shooting meant for him. He was sent to prison boot camp and Jennifer was in the hospital. It's a good story about his struggles at boot camp and how he matured and learned to become a responsible citizen that Jennifer would want to marry. He thinks about her constantly and thinking about their future together is what keeps him going and motivates him to become a better person. The reader learns much about their relationship through the letters they exchange while he is detained. The warning label on the book which says "Parental Guidance, Explicit Language, Adult Situations" almost scared me off but I'm glad I read it. It has a bitter sweet ending. I came to like Dio and pulled for him throughout most of the book. I highly recommend this to both men, women and young adults.
