Beginning with Forever (Forever #1) by Lan LLP Review

 Beginning with Forever

What a great introduction to a new author and a new series! Beginning With Forever is a wonderfully told story of a couple with seemingly nothing in common coming together to build a dynamic relationship. Carson and Lillian meet in a most unexpected way and have an undeniable attraction to one another right away. Lillian is a young medical student who is working hard to achieve a dream for both herself and her mother against difficult odds. Lillian is not looking for anyone to swoop in and rescue her, she wants to be the one taking care of and saving others. For both Lillian and her mother being wealthy is a strike against a man, not a point in his favor. Carson is a successful businessman who has turned tragedy, agony, and despair into a life-long mission to seek a cure for cancer. 

Beginning With Forever contains everything you could want in a contemporary romance. You get strong characters all around. Lillian, Carson and the secondary characters are all interesting and well fleshed out. The people who populate the world created by LLP  reflect the diversity in today's modern society and I greatly appreciated that. Today's world is made up of many unique cultural, social, and religious backgrounds and combinations so it was very refreshing to read a story that mirrors that. There's something for everyone in  Beginning With Forever-drama, love, lust, and greed. What else could you ask from LLP aside from please give us more soon!

Happy Reading!

**I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.**

Love isn't easy to forget even if you’re determined to never feel it again. It has a way of finding you when all hope is gone, resurfacing tender emotions you've buried deep in your core because the pain of acknowledging them is too much for you to handle.

Carson Bradley, CEO of a powerful pharmaceutical corporation is rich beyond boundaries with a missing soul. His heart faded away fifteen years ago with the death of his first love.He strives every day for the sake of his cancer research because he’s determined to eradicate it forever.

Lillian Ly is a humble, young medical student whose kind and generous heart is as vast as the universe. Being raised poor by a single parent; she matured quickly and respected the sacrifices her mother made for her. Lillian’s determination leads her down a stringent five-year path with no room for love.
When their paths cross at an unlikely place thousands of miles away from home, they both realize that fate has brought them together, and Carson will never let anything or anyone tear them apart. He knows how desolate life is without love and refuses to return to that empty place ever again.

Lillian enters Carson’s world with the purest intention of loving him with all her heart, but discovers that his volatile world will alter her uncomplicated life indefinitely. Regardless of what obstacles are thrown in their path, Lillian and Carson will endure them all to hold onto their forever from the beginning to the end.


“Carson, I’m freely offering myself to you right now. Please.” I plead fearlessly. I’m shameless and not above begging for him to take my body. Who is this sex-craved woman anyways?

     “Sweetness, you’re making it very difficult for me to resist you, to control myself.” He lowers himself intimately close to graze his soft, moist lips on my forehead, bridge of my nose and then intensely over my lips. The urgency of his need for me is translated through his kisses. Biting down firmly on his lower lip, it appears that he’s forcing the strength of his will to remain tame. Our eye contact is broken when he seals his shut to blind the temptation lying beneath his body. His hands grip the sheets desperately, clawing and then fisting. I think this is his last hope of hanging onto his dignity. “Goodnight Lily, only offer your body to me when you believe it in your heart,” he murmurs and rolls off me.

~Meet The Author~
Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen to jot down the first sentence of my vivid imagination. Those initial words were the seeds that grew into my flowering romance book, “Beginning with Forever.” With all my heart, I wrote, rewrote, edited, re-edited and now, I’m finally ready to share it with all of you. My one and only aspiration for this book is to have readers embrace my story and characters with their heart.If I can make someone laugh till their gut hurts, hate the villain with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, and drool over the hero or feel any other emotions, than I've succeeded my goal.
I’m the sappiest person in the world when it comes to romance. Don’t smirk! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or in my book,Mr. Hot Billionaire, and happy endings. In my heart, every women deserves all three, and they will when they lose themselves in my books. Your fantasy can become a reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.
