Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo

“​Touching and powerful...Reid masterfully grabs hold of the heartstrings and doesn't let go. A stunning first novel.”​Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“Have you ever heard of supernovas? They shine brighter than anything else in the sky and then fade out really quickly, a short burst of extraordinary energy. I like to think you and Ben were like that . . . in that short time, you had more passion than some people have in a lifetime.”

Elsie Porter is an average twentysomething and yet what happens to her is anything but ordinary. On a rainy New Year’s Day, she heads out to pick up a pizza for one. She isn’t expecting to see anyone else in the shop, much less the adorable and charming Ben Ross. Their chemistry is instant and electric. Ben cannot even wait twenty-four hours before asking to see her again. Within weeks, the two are head over heels in love. By May, they’ve eloped.

Only nine days later, Ben is out riding his bike when he is hit by a truck and killed on impact. Elsie hears the sirens outside her apartment, but by the time she gets downstairs, he has already been whisked off to the emergency room. At the hospital, she must face Susan, the mother-in-law she has never met—and who doesn’t even know Elsie exists.

Interweaving Elsie and Ben’s charmed romance with Elsie and Susan’s healing process, Forever, Interrupted will remind you that there’s more than one way to find a happy ending.

Sooooo Amazing

I had to read this for a second time because it’s just so good. Everyone should read it. Everyone should fall in love with Ben. Cry with Elsie and Susan. This book is so perfectly written. It bounces back and forth in time and brings you to tears and then to laughter back to tears again. One of my all time favorites ❤️

This book will definitely make you think!

Forever Interrupted: A Novel isn't your typical romance novel. If you are looking for a book to sweep you off your feet from the word go, this isn't for you. This book takes a tragedy and makes you struggle with the aftermath right along with the main character, Elsie Porter Ross. She eventually comes to grips with reality when she learns to lean on those close to her and in turn she becomes a rock to those people. The author did a very good job of forcing me to question myself as if I were going through the same situation. As with her other book, After I Do, I found myself thinking about not just myself but how friends and family cope with the same situation. I suppose the moral of a Taylor Jenkins Reid story is to remember if you are suffering and you think you are alone, you are not and that is a very comforting thought.
