Forever an Ex by Victoria Christopher Murray was overall a good read. Although the story started off a bit slow but picks up. The end will really have the reader contemplating situations within in their own lives. Anyone will be able to relate to the obvious messages between the pages of this novel. In reading the ARC copy in e-book format, I was unaware at the time that this was part of a series. In reading the synopsis on Amazon, I see it was clearly stated that this was part of a series that I have not read. Had I of read them I would have been able to follow the storyline more and the story may not have been slow in the beginning for me.
