Sara is back into her parents’ house after her cancer free party. She leaves her rich husband with whom spends twenty years. There she makes amend that her parents will be proud of her again. George is her high school sweetheart and he is all around her, but maybe his time past already and she could give a chance to another man called Raj? George spies her and maybe saves her turning himself in inspector Morse as he says, but she doesn’t know that. He knows that Sara is the love of his life, however, will Sara choose him?
Forever Night Stand is a novella with the unusual romantic plot other than I used to read. I mean Sara had cancer and she healed, but she does something ironically bad on her party. That leads her back into her parents’ home and the decision to make them happy remarrying.
I like Sara and feel nothing but compassion, I cry on some scenes especially with her dad and when she makes that decision:
“The chair fell behind me as I hugged my dad with all my might. Acid tears scorched my face. Guilt. My dad knew…Guilt. I made my dad cry, I lied…My body quivered. The deluge of tears re-modelled dad’s cashmere jumper.”
The story is written in the first person told by Sara and George POV. I like how it sounds into my mind especially the memories of their time together:
“We were a galaxy that space forgot, our tongues guessing each moment, our hands firm longing for our bodies to conjoin.”
A two hour romance which starts with drama and mayhem!
Sara has her back up against the wall. She is recovering from the side effects of chemotherapy and at her own “cancer free” party, she makes a decision that will change her life forever.
The adventure begins when she leaves her posh lifestyle in Scotland and moves in with her Bollywood loving parents, in West London. Her parents are tragically ashamed of Sara’s actions and her electronic monitor. She decides to make them happy again and considers re-marrying.
