For some people, silence is a weapon. For Mallory “Mouse” Dodge, it’s a shield. Growing up, she learned that the best way to survive was to say nothing. And even though it’s been four years since her nightmare ended, she’s beginning to worry that the fear that holds her back will last a lifetime.
Now, after years of homeschooling with loving adoptive parents, Mallory must face a new milestone—spending her senior year at public high school. But of all the terrifying and exhilarating scenarios she’s imagined, there’s one she never dreamed of—that she’d run into Rider Stark, the friend and protector she hasn’t seen since childhood, on her very first day.
It doesn’t take long for Mallory to realize that the connection she shared with Rider never really faded. Yet the deeper their bond grows, the more it becomes apparent that she’s not the only one grappling with the lingering scars from the past. And as she watches Rider’s life spiral out of control, Mallory faces a choice between staying silent and speaking out—for the people she loves, the life she wants, and the truths that need to be heard.
If you know me, you all know I am a huuuuuuuge Jennifer Armentrout fan.  I have all her books and have pretty much read them all too.  So with that being said, THE PROBLEM WITH FOREVER is totally different from what we are used to from JLA.  It was amazing just like her other books, but I just can't pinpoint what it is about this one that felt different.  

Mallory (Mouse) is in high school and totally a loner. It's her first year attending public school since she has been homeschooled ever since she was adopted. Mallory didn't have a good childhood, actually, she had a horrible one.  She was a foster kid and her foster parents, if you could even call them "parents" were monsters. The things she saw, heard and endured were things that no kid should EVER experience! I literally cried reading those parts. It's because of her childhood and PTSD that Mallory is so quiet and doesn't really talk much. On her first day of public school, Mallory sees Rider and all her thoughts, memories and feelings come back. You see, Rider and Mallory lived together in that horrible nightmare. It was Rider that kept her safe and protected her. So you can see what it is for Mallory when she first sees Rider after not seeing him after that one crazy night all those years ago. 

Rider is now one of my favorite male characters. He's sweet, caring and very protective over Mallory. You can tell that he loved her from the very beginning.  He's been in love with her since they were 6 years old.  I am sure that it didn't start off as a romantic kind of love, but more of a survival and protective love.  They were all they had.  There wasn't anyone else to love them, so they loved each other. 

Now that Rider and Mallory are back together, they are no longer the same people. They live on different sides of the "railroad tracks." But even though they are different now, deep inside they are still those scared little kids hiding and trying not to be noticed in the house full of monsters. 

I laughed, cried, swooned and cried some more.  Jen, THE PROBLEM WITH FOREVER is a story that I will never forget.  Thank you for pouring your heart, sweat and tears into this book.
