Review: Always You by C.M. Steele

Publication Date: April 25, 2016

Series: Best Friend Series Book #1

Rating: 3.5 Stars

Official Blurb: 
Alexander Richmond didn't expect to spend spring break with the most beautiful female he'd ever seen when he planned to visit his buddy. She was more temptation than a week of bikini clad women on South Padre Island. There was just one major hiccup. She was only sixteen. By the end of the week, he made the decision to wait for her to grow up. Two very long years. 

Calista (Cali) Delaney was shocked at her immediate reaction she had to her brother's best friend. The tall handsome Alex was too perfect. After the first week together, she fantasized what a life with him could be like. 

In two years many things could happen and did, but will it stop Alex and Cali from being together? 

Of Course not, but follow their love story through pain and tragedy and a whole lot of loving.

Review:                              *~*~*~* 3.5 Stars *~*~*~*

Whew grab some tissues actually maybe a few boxes. I love best friend falls for younger sister type books, which is why I was excited to read this one. I have read a few books by C.M., but this one just wasn’t my favorite. Cali and Alex are a super cute couple and I thought they really deserved each other, but at times this book is really hard to get through because of everything going on around them.

When Cali and Alex first meet she is definitely off limits because she is underage. Alex sets a plan in motion that he will wait for her for 2 years until they can be together. After 2 years, Alex is ready to make is move, but everything goes insane. This is where the book takes a HUGE turn. It was very sad and broke my heart a few times. During this time, I was happy for Cali and Alex and happy they were finally together, but also felt a little weird about their connection during such a traumatic experience. A few times I found myself thinking… wait what? Overall it’s a cute read as far as the love story goes and I will definitely be waiting for the next book.
