"Will you marry me?"
Most women would love for Luke Walters to ask that question. But when Misty Handlin can’t seem to find the right answer, Luke offers a new proposal.
"Go sow your wild oats this summer, then give me your answer."
Knowing she’s struggling with the unanswered questions regarding her first love, Misty decides to do just that. Maybe some time with the man who stole her heart all those years ago will finally quell whatever is holding her back from Luke.
Kellin Patel was forced to leave Misty behind when he was twelve years old. While the U-Haul pulled away from the only place that felt like a home, he wasn’t sure if he’d see her again. As the years went by, and time never seemed to be on his side, he finally began to accept he would never have another chance with Misty.
Now, all grown up, Misty is back and looking for one last wild summer with Kellin. Though their lives have continued to move in opposite directions, they’ll realize one thing has Always remained the same: They’ve both been holding on to the memory of first love and unspoken regret.
Who will Misty choose to spend Forever with?

I don't think I can properly express how much I love Cheryl McIntyre and the Sometimes Never series. This has been one of my favorite series and continues to get better with each book. I have loved each character and every storyline. Each new book becomes my favorite and that streak continues with this story. Kellin and Misty have a complicated history that started as a childhood friendship. After being separated by a move they manage to reconnect and begin building an even stronger bond, but one night ruins everything. What should have been a happy reunion turns into heartbreak. Once again separating the two and forcing each to go on without the other.
As the years pass and their lives take them in different directions, they still can't help but think about that night that everything went wrong and how it ruined a beautiful friendship. When Misty is faced with a decision that will affect her future, she decides to take the summer to clear her head and maybe figure out what happened.
The summer takes an unexpected turn when Misty and Kellin find themselves on a camping trip with friends and a game of truth or dare brings the past to light. As the summer progresses they find the bond they shared so long ago is still there and is growing stronger. As their time together comes to an end relationships from their past and present intervene and threaten to separate them again for good.
I absolutely love this book and how the story plays out. I loved getting to see a little bit from the characters in previous books as well and getting to experience all that is Roh and Sadie. This is a fantastic addition to an already amazing series. Fantastic job again Cheryl McIntyre!!
I highly recommend this book and the entire series.
Mag's 4 Star Review:
Let me first start off by saying, there has not been on single thing written by Cheryl McIntyre that I have not loved. Not liked, but LOVED. Her books have the ability to mess you up emotional, mentally and most defiantly physically, especially with all that Nesquik making going on. While reading her books they own, consume, and eat away at me until they are all I think about. I cannot express how much I love her characters and the emotions they portray and Kellin and Misty were no different.
Misty and Kellin have a very complicated and long relationship full of heartache and disappointments, but fate has a way of bringing people back to each other when they need each other the most. Misty is faced with a decision that, for most, would be an easy one getting married to her current boyfriend of ten months, but for Misty there are lingering doubts of a boy who wiggled his way into her heart and hasn't left. Setting out on a mission to find out what she truly wants, Misty is forced to face her real emotions, the ones locked deep away.
Kellin has always had a thing for Misty, ever since she was schooling him in basketball and before he was forced to move away from her. Many years and stupid decisions later, Kellin comes face to face with Misty for the first time in a long time and he soon realizes his feelings haven't left or went away. If anything his feelings have only grown over time.
This book is a beautifully emotional journey of two kindred spirits finding their way back to each other and finding the ways to work past their stubbornness to attempt to be happy. One of the many things I love about the Sometimes Never series is the reoccurring characters and we got to see some friendly faces from the previous books in this one, which is always nice. Kellin and Misty have a special place in my heart, because I feel like I have watched them grow up. They were twelve when we first met them and now we see them at twenty-one and finding out who they really are. I highly recommend this entire series to everyone looking for a beautiful reads that will leave you wanting more!
Kellin lowers himself beside me, getting comfortable. “Don’t know. Don’t care.” He grips the end of the sucker stick, surprising me when he tugs it from my mouth and slides it into his own.
It takes me a moment to register how incredibly sexy I find this. I realize my mouth is still hanging open and snap it closed. “Well that was rude.” I try for playful, but my voice sounds coarse and breathy because Kellin’s words replay in my head--I’m not hitting on you. Trust me, there’ll be no doubt in your mind when I do that.
His eyebrows rise as he grins around the sucker. “You’re right.” He pulls it from his lips, holding it out to me. “Sorry. You can have it back.”
There are ten other suckers sitting on the table, three of which are the same exact flavor. I could just as easily take one of those. But I don’t.
Right here. This is when I reach my breaking point. I sweep my hair to one shoulder and lean forward, wrapping my mouth around the sucker and gently pulling it from his hand.
“Thanks,” I say softly.
Kellin swallows, the sound audible in the otherwise quiet room. His tongue skims his bottom lip. His hands curl into fists. “I think I want it back,” he utters.
I tilt my head, blinking slowly. “What will you give me for it?”
