Ava Diaz needs saving.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
Just like she doesn’t know a thing about the boy she sits next to on the first day of senior year.
He thinks she’s a brat.
She thinks he’s entitled.
Maybe first impressions don’t always last…
Because Connor Ledger’s about to save her.
He just doesn’t know why.

Megan’s Review

“She was my first everything, and I want her – no, I need her – to be my last everything. I need her to be beside me when all of this is over and everything ends, because she is my end game… My forever.”

After absolutely devouring Heartbreak and Hope I could not wait to read the epic conclusion First and Forever, and wow! I could not have loved this duet any more than I did. It was everything I had hoped it would be and more. I have been a massive Jay McLean fan for many years, but nothing could have prepared me for the heartbreaking yet beautiful journey she took me on. These two books will stay with me forever. I was absolutely spell-bounded with Jay’s flawless writing and her beautiful words that have truly touched my soul in such a profound way. No review I attempt to write will do justice to how positively epic this story was. Trust me when I say this duet is a must read and one that will stay with you long after the last word is read.

Ava and Connor have not had an easy road to love and while there were many factors affecting them being together, I had to have faith that a love like theirs would stand tall against the toughest terrain, that they would eventually find their way back to one another again. They were meant to be in every sense of the word, and I hoped and prayed they would get their long sought after happily ever after that they both were so deserving of.

I cannot even articulate enough how much I adored this duet; it was just everything. It had the perfect balance of gut-wrenching heartache, angst and laugh out loud moments that kept me fully invested and addicted until the very end. This duet is a powerful story of first love, and I was not prepared for the feelings that these two stories would evoke from me. I would recommend both Heartbreak and Hope and First and Forever to absolutely everyone, it is an unforgettable duet that is a must read.
