    Dragged on a bit

    I have loved all books in these series. This one had me lost a little and I felt it dragged a bit with a lot of unimportant info. I will still read the next one but I hope it has a bit more Zazz to it.

    Disappointing in comparison to the rest of FE

    I was given the opportunity to read and review this ARC in exchange for my honest review, thank you to Escape Publishing and Netgalley.com. I am a long time fan of Scarlett Dawn, primarily this series, Forever Evermore. Her fantastical writing, amazing sense of humor, and ability to create real, credible characters make them my go-to books when suggesting books for readers. In Chosen One, we pick up exactly where Chosen Fool left off, with Caro discovering that her oh-so-hot evening has been spent with a sexy shifter that is a little too familiar, instead of the stranger elemental she expected. As things heat up, Caro finds herself with choices that are very unexpected, and hard to reconcile. The One, Leric, gives her some mind-blowing information that changes everything, and leads Caro and her band of protectors to the Temple. Focusing mainly on Caro's band of merry men and their interactions, you won't see much of the other current day Prodigies, or those of the first three books, with the exception of Ezra. (THANK YOU!!) My problems with the book are as follows: This particular book though is suffering from a lack of good editing and lack of direction. Incorrect wording choices, multiple typos, and run-on sentences galore, it seems that not much attention was given to detail, which is the editor's fault. As for the lack of direction, this book feels more like an extremely long prelude, than the third in a series. With a lack of Scarlett Dawn's trademark banter, action and an overindulgence of hate sex, this feels... formulated. It distresses me to have to say that given that I am such a diehard fan of the King books that started this incredible world. I, personally, would like to see this book revamped, because I believe the story is there, but this was not the telling of it that was needed to meet the standards of the previous books.

    Loved it!

    Chosen one is the sixth installment in the Forever Evermore series. In this book, we travel back in time with Caro to 1993. I am a sucker for flashbacks and although it cannot be seen as such for Caro (but more so time travelling), I enjoyed this plot twist tremendously. I enjoyed reading about the previous Kings (Venclaire, Kincaid, Fergus and Nelson) in their younger days and their relationship with Caro. One of my favorite scenes is when Caro handed over all her weapons to a security guard, which had everyone stunned, including the Kings at the time (Bridges, Townsend, White and Samson). After reading this plot twist, it became very clear as to why Elder Fergus took an instant liking to Caro in the previous book (Chosen Fool). In comparison to the previous books in the Forever Evermore series, specifically Lily’s books, I would say that this book was mainly focused on Caro and not the other Prodigies (London, Aria and Brann). In the first three installments, I really enjoyed reading about all the Prodigies and getting a glimpse into their lives and relationships with each other. In Chosen Thief and Chosen Fool, we got a glimpse into the lives of the other Prodigies, but this was more on the surface. In this book, there was a mention of the other Prodigies during a training session, but then again it was mainly Caro’s matches we got the inside scoop on. Although the first three installments were told through Lily’s eyes, we still got a feel for the other Prodigies and their personas. This was a big miss for me in this book, because I have yet to get a feel for the other Prodigies and their personas. After all these books are based on the lives of all the Prodigies and their journeys on becoming Kings and Queens. Speaking of which, this book was mainly based on Caro’s duties as the Chosen, which explains the title of this book. I really enjoyed reading about Caro’s new duties as the Chosen and not forgetting the revamped ‘mate’ bond that this created between her and Leric. Oh Leric, is it weird that I’m liking Leric even more after reading this book?! I love that both him and Caro have a choice, but after mutually agreeing to explore their relationship, Caro, in my opinion, did not put much effort into this as he did. I mean, he broke things off with someone whom he has been in love with for a century to explore his feelings for Caro, yet she could not give the same commitment. In addition, she got very angry when she realized that he’s not keeping it 100 with her. I mean, why should he tho?! When she isn’t giving him her all in return. I just don’t get it, hence why I’m still rooting for Leric. I like that Cain is Caro’s muse during tough times, but the fact that both parties cannot get past their obstacles of 1). Caro not being of his faction and 2). Caro not being able to get past Cain’s betrayal of her trust. I can see them growing to being more, but I cannot seem to get past them constantly telling the other that they hate each other. There are definitely some roadblocks that they will have to get past for a possible future together. In the other books, I really enjoyed the names of endearment that Lily & Ezra and Cahal & Antonio gave each other. However, I did not like Caro’s name of endearment for Cain. Is it just me, but I kept picturing Jax Teller (from the tv series Sons of Anarchy) saying ‘darling’ every time she used this endearment for Cain *swoon*?! I in no way associate this endearment with a guy and I have Jax Teller to blame for that! The final 3 to 4 chapters were quite a letdown to be honest. The book was dragging, which was quite anti climatic in comparison to the other chapters in the book. I suppose that these chapters were meant as possible fillers for the following book in the series. Nonetheless, I found these chapters quite lacking and expected much more from the final chapters. This is one of my favorite series and I am eagerly awaiting the next book in the series. Hopefully the wait won’t be as long this time around.
