Title: Always Author:  Amanda Weaver Genre:  Contemporary romance-age 20-30. Publish Date:   April 15, 2014 Publisher:  Independently Published  Cover by:   AngstyG/ Event organized by: Literati Author Services, Inc.  

From the moment they meet, their connection is perfect in every way but one. It’s New Year’s Eve, 2006, and Justine James is fronting her dead-end band for a less-than-adoring crowd. But there’s one person there who sees what she could be—one person who changes everything for her. Dillon Pierce clawed his way up from the LA streets with no one to count on but his best friend, Ash. Their years of struggle finally pay off when their band, Outlaw Rovers, gets signed and their single takes off. With Ash as the magnetic lead singer and Dillon as the band’s musical soul, they’re destined for greatness, provided Dillon can keep Ash from self-destructing first. Dillon might not be fronting Outlaw Rovers, but he’s always been the only one Justine sees. She’s followed his career from afar and when he shows up at her crummy New Year’s Eve gig, nothing will stop her from meeting him. They forge an intense connection, rapidly moving from friends to musical soul mates. Justine wants much more, but she’s not willing to climb over groupies and industry bottom-feeders to make it happen. Dillon becomes a fixture in her life, but she has to figure out how to keep him out of her heart. Outlaw Rovers begins to implode as Justine’s star is on the rise. The years that follow bring equal parts fame and ruin. For Justine, a new love supplants her old heartbreak, and Dillon has to reboot his life after losing nearly everything that matters. Despite the odds, Dillon and Justine remain devoted friends and musical collaborators. After all the missed chances, wrong turns and painful detours, can they finally find the happiness together that seemed destined from the start?

After years can their opportunity come once and for all? Can they love each other at the same time? 

Or is it too late for them?
"I love you. I have... forever. Since I met you, probably. Maybe even before that."- Justine

I think we've all been where Justine and Dillon is. Loving/liking someone, but the timing isn't right. It's always back and forth, but never at the same time. I've been there when I was younger and it SUCKS! I really enjoyed this book. It takes the readers over years with these characters, during their ups and downs, pain and loss. You will feel for them and wish they would just let it happen. Life is hell and seeing the one you love move on is hell. They both grow so much throughout this book, blossom into the adults they need to be. I seriously loved both characters, they had everything one needs for us readers to love. You never got bored, because there was always something new. In a book spanning over six years, it could have happen, but it didn't. The author knew how to keep us attached to them and they book. I wonder what's next for these two? I give Always 5 stars!!!
