Meghan Quinn has become a favorite author of mine (I have a long list, haha) and I am excited to see that today is the release day for her newest book. That Forever Girl is now available for everyone to read. Today I want to tell you about the book and let you know what I thought of this story and at the end I get to share a little excerpt. Let’s take a look!
USA Today bestselling author MeghaQuinn’s second book in the Getting Lucky series brings heart, humor, and heat back to Port Snow.
There are two little words every small-town man dreads:
Harper Sanders, the girl who was supposed to be my forever, has returned to Port Snow, Maine, for good—and she’s bringing back memories of our shared past.
We once had a bright future together, but when tragedy struck, I threw it all away and pushed her out of my life. People in our small town think I’m cursed, but I know better. I did it all to myself.
And now she’s creating a life of her own in the place where we first fell in love. I can’t fight my feelings for her—or the strong attraction that keeps pulling us together. But after all this time, can she forgive the past and fall in love with me all over again?
Everyone hopes to find that forever girl…I just hope I haven’t lost mine for good.

I haven’t read That Second Chance yet, but I was really excited about That Forever Girl. So many people were loving the first book and the second one sounded amazing. Meghan Quinn is amazing at romantic comedies, but That Forever Girl proves she’s also amazing at hitting you in all the feels.
Before talking about Rogan and Harper’s story, I have to say I want to be a member of the Knightly family. I always think it’s amazing when an author can create a family that is so loving, caring and just so much fun you want to join them and become a member. I will never have enough of this family!
That Forever Girl was an amazing and I was sucked in right away. The way this story was told wouldn’t let me put this book down. I love that we get both Harper and Rogan’s POV, but also two timelines. We get to see memories from years ago and read about them in the present. That made this story come alive and the ‘second chance romance’ element of this story a lot more understandable. On top of that, the story flowed so much better this way. Everything happens gradually and I loved I could understand their thoughts and feelings even better. This is definitely a love story I won’t forget.
Rogan is a tough cookie to crack. In the beginning it’s clear a lot has happened and I just wanted to smack him at times for things he did. Until I got more of his story. Then I could understand him so much more and my heart really went out to him.
Harper comes back to town, but it takes awhile before we find out why. I think the break up with Rogan was even harder for her, because she lost a family as well. Harper is still trying to find her way and I think coming back to Port Snow was the right move for her. Even though she doesn’t always seem it, Harper is a lot stronger than she thinks.
Even though this book is more serious than her romantic comedies, Meghan Quinn still made me laugh. That Forever Girl is the full of all the feels. We get an amazing love story, a wonderful small town, romance and swoonworthy moments and characters you won’t forget. I definitely need more in this series and to be back in Port Snow!
There is no way in hell she’s here.
My family isn’t that cruel. Right?
From my car, I try to gauge the number of bodies in my parents’ house through the windows. Ugh, I can’t see shit.
She can’t possibly be at family dinner. My family loves Harper, but they wouldn’t invite her, not after I called my mom the other day, telling her to put her matchmaking skills to rest. She just chuckled but reassured me she knew what she was doing. Whatever the hell that means.
I was very adamant about leaving Harper alone. The Knightlys can be too much at times, and I’m sure we’re the last thing she needs right when she’s trying to settle back into town.
Resigning myself to the inevitable, I retrieve my keys from the ignition and make my way to the front door. Hand on the doorknob, I take a deep breath and walk into the house I grew up in. The warm walls and carefully hung family pictures greet me first, followed by my family’s raucous laughter emanating from the back of the house.
I remove my shoes and hang my suit jacket on the coat hanger by the front door before cautiously making my way down the long hallway to the connected kitchen and large dining room. Ren, Griffin’s girlfriend, is the first to spot me. She gives me a small smile and a little wave. The rest of the family is scattered around the kitchen as usual, getting in my parents’ way as they try to finish up the dinner prep.
Griffin sees me next. “Ah, you finally decided to join us.” He checks his watch. “I think that was eight minutes in the car. Who had eight minutes?”
Reid raises his hand and hops off the counter, grabbing a bowl from the center of the table and pocketing the wad of cash inside. “I know him too well.” Reid pats me on the back and slips me a one-dollar bill. “Here, this is for you. Thanks for taking eight minutes to prepare yourself to come in the house. Daddy is going to buy a new pair of jeans.” He pats his pockets.
Ignoring everyone and their stupid bet, I pop the fridge door open and grab a water. Reid joins me, sticking his head in the fridge so I’m forced to look at him. “Aren’t you going to ask?”
“Ask what?” I grit out.
“If she’s here. I know that’s why you were hanging out in your car, debating if you should come in or not.”
My skin prickles, and I brace myself for the answer as I shut the fridge door. “Is she here?” I hiss.
Slowly, Reid smiles and nods. “Yup, she’s in the bathroom.”
“Are you fucking kidding me?” I angrily squeeze my water bottle, nearly popping the top off. “Why? Why is she here?”
Reid shrugs. “I don’t know, maybe because she wants to be here.”
“Who invited her? Was it Mom?” I don’t wait for an answer. Instead, I walk over to the culprit, who’s hovering over the stove, stirring a huge pot of chili.
“Oh, hey, sweetie. Cornbread is in the oven, honey is in the crock, and I also got tortilla chips because I know how much you like crumbling them in your chili.”
“Mom, why did you invite her? I told you to leave her alone, to leave usalone.”
“What are you talking about?” My mom looks me up and down and then goes back to the chili.
“Harper. I asked you not to invite Harper.”
The bathroom door opens, and Jen pops out, rubbing her hands together. “Did he come in yet?” Her eyes light up as she spots me. “What time was it?”
“Eight minutes. Reid won.”
Disappointed, she snaps her fingers. “Damn, I for sure thought I was going to win.”
Confused, I turn back to my mom. “Harper isn’t here?”
“No, of course not. I wouldn’t invite her so early. She needs time to settle. What made you think she was here?”
I whip around to find Reid leaning against the kitchen wall, arms crossed and with a giant grin on his face. I point at him. “You better run, because I’m going to fucking kill you.”
Like a bolt of lightning, he takes off, and I chase after him, nothing but pure murder on my mind.
