Blog Tour: Finding Our Forever by Lan LLP

Tragedy Strikes Again

Now weaved into Carson Bradley's web of boundless wealth and pharmaceutical rivalries, Lillian Ly is altering the course of her bright academic future. She’s determined to follow the beat of her devoted heart even after a devastating loss she'd suffered as a result of a deliberate accident.  With two missing researchers whose survival is based on a drug formula that Carson is unable to deliver, he fears the kidnappers will stop at nothing to get what they want—meaning Lillian’s life is also in danger. 
Can they find their forever with all the danger that still lies ahead?
Guilt gnaws at his conscience with each passing day, but despite his shame, he still can’t let her go. She is the flame to his fire, the soul of his heart. Without her by his side, he is just a body without a warm pulse.  Desperate to obtain the missing drug components and keep Lillian safe, Carson becomes overbearing and unreasonable.  Lillian’s strong-will tears them emotionally apart, stirring thoughts of doubt for their future. She knows she loves him irrevocably, but can she survive in his volatile world?

Finding Our Forever by Lan LLP is the exciting second book in the Forever Series that has the reader yearning for more as soon as they finish.  The story of Carson and Lily becomes more serious, both in their relationship and in dealing with their safety.  There are serious twists and turns throughout book 2 but there is one thing that doesn't waiver, their undeniable love for each other.

Finding Our Forever picks up exactly where Beginning With Forever left off, Lily has lost their baby in a fiery car accident that she miraculously survived from.  The pain that Lily and Carson are struggling with due to the loss of their child can be felt through the words that Lan writes, allowing the reading to feel sad with them during this difficult time in their relationship.

Returning to Boston together, Lily's medical career is up in the air with having left school in St Croix with no immediate plans for return due to the danger that Carson alludes to her needing protection from.  Lily struggles daily with the limitations that Carson has placed on her while in Boston, needing the world to believe that she is dead; she is unable to leave the house, or go back to school, or do anything that seems to be remotely normal.

The reader is also introduced to a new character in Book 2, Wesley Montgomery, and his own struggle with his father's part in the missing researchers from Carson's company.  Although involved without prior knowledge to his father's plans, he does not want to be a part of this type of cut-throat business, as he doesn't share the belief that money is everything in this world.

Being given a glimpse into Lily's father's family in this book,  who she doesn't know, but meets inadvertently when attending a business trip in Hong Kong posing as Carson's assistant is extremely intriguing and has me wanting more; will Lily find out that she was within touching reach of her family?  Although neither Carson or Lily know that Marcus Ly is linked to her; he is involved with Carson's development of his cancer drug through one of his missing researchers and is helping the Alpha team to attempt at locating them.

This book was a 3.5 read for me and I cannot wait for the next book in the Forever Series as I desperately need answers to the many questions that were brought forward while reading.  I recommend that everyone pick up this amazing love story with a twist! You won't be disappointed.

Finding Our Forever is the 2nd book in the Forever Series.  I would give this book a 3.5-4 stars.  This is the continuation of Lil and Carson's love story.  This book will pick up right where the first book Beginning With Forever left off.  I fell in love with Carson in the first book and even more so with this story.  It is told in multiple POV's and unfortunately ends in another cliff hanger.  I have so many more questions now that I am not sure what to think... can't wait for the third and final installment in this series.

Carson and Lil had a very unconventional beginning to there love story, but one that literally made your heart melt.  When tragedy struck at the end of Beginning With Forever it will make Lil question everything she feels for Carson.  But Carson won't let Lil go that easily and they start the fight to there forever.  

I decide that if I keep reminding myself how much she still loves me, uncertainty will become certain and I won't lose faith.  She's resentful because of the destructive events that surround us, not because of me.  I pray.  When I welcomed here into my world, I only had the purest intentions of offering her all my love and making her the happiest woman in the world because that's what she's done for me.---CARSON
Lil will finally open her eyes and see that Carson truly loves her and the tragedy wasn't his fault.  They start to build there life together but of course there story isn't over because Carson's old life isn't done meddling with his new life.  When more danger is lurking and more secrets are being held back there life will start to destruct again, but this time will they find there way back to forever or will it all be lost?

What's that saying?  When it rains, it pours, and in my case, it floods and drowns, leaving me hopeless.  I've been dragged to hell and back, and I'm not sure where I'm at now.-- LIL

I really hope this 3rd book comes out soon because as I said above there are so many more questions I have now and I need some answers.  I truly hope the third book is a long one because this book left out so much that I can't wait for more!  Thanks for another bumpy Carson ride Lan LLP!

Over a long year ago, I picked up a pen and wrote the first sentence of a fantasy that I’ve imagined ever since I was a daydreaming little girl—minus the steamy parts of course. That initial sentence was the seed 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 with vengeance, cry till their eyes dry out, fall in love all over again, 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 laugh! I believe in love at first sight, Prince Charming or Mr. Hot Billionaire in my book, 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 your reality with just the flip of a page, so come join me.
