Looking back, I should have seen the signs. Perhaps I did, but I subconsciously chose to ignore them.

From the time I was ten, when I first met Dylan, I knew he was my forever guy. Back then, I couldn’t put words to what I was feeling, but, as the years progressed, I came to recognize it for what it was—soul-deep love. The kind only very few people ever get to experience.

Dylan was more than just my best friend, my childhood sweetheart, my lover. He was my soul mate. We were carved from the same whole—destined to be together forever.

Until he changed.

And I believed I was no longer good enough.

Until he shattered me so completely, it felt like I ceased to exist.

And I’d never experienced such heart-crushing pain.

Until he leveled me a second time, and I truly wanted to die.

But I had to stay strong because I wasn’t alone in this cruel twist of fate.

I look to the sky, pleading with the stars, begging someone to tell me what I should do because I don’t know how to deal with this. I don’t know how to cope when my forever has changed, and I can’t help wondering if I had seen the signs earlier, if I’d pushed him, would it have been enough to save us?

Or had fate already decided to alter our forever?

***Due to mature content and potential triggers this book is only recommended to readers over the age of eighteen.

Excerpt When Forever Changes by Siobhan Davis

A shrill whistle pierces my eardrums, and I look up as my name is called. My brother, Ryan, waves from across the street. He’s in his running gear, and, judging by the hair plastered to his forehead, I’m guessing he’s on the return route of his daily jog. He sprints across the road with a certain look on his face. One I’ve seen way too many times to count.
“Good evening, ladies,” he says, all but ignoring me as he grins seductively at my friend. Very slowly, he peruses the length of her body, licking his lips and folding his muscular arms across his torso. Myndi’s chest visibly heaves as she returns the eye-fuck, and I know it’s time to stop this train wreck from happening.
I punch Ryan in the arm.
Hard.
“Ow!” Rubbing his arm, he scowls at me.“What the fuck was that for?”
“Quit with the sleazy‘comefuck me’ looks. Myndi is my best friend so that means she’s off limits to the likes of you.” I prod my finger in his solid chest to drill my point home. And it’s not the first time I’ve had to issue a warning. He’s been after her since last year. Although he’d never make a move on any girl in a relationship, now that Myndi and Travis are no more, he seems to have made it a mission to get her underneath him.
As much as I love my brother, and I truly adore him, he’s a complete manwhore, leaving a trail of broken hearts all over campus. If I thought his intentions were serious, and that Myndi was into it, I wouldn’t stand in their way, but I don’t want to see her hurt. And I don’t want things to become awkward. Even though Ryan, Slater, and their crew are seniors, we still hang with them a lot, and if Ryan treated Myndi like one of his “girls,” things would definitely get messy.
“You’re lucky you’re my favorite sister,” he grumbles, shoving my finger away.
I purse my lips and narrow my eyes.“I’m your only sister.”
“Exactly.” He smirks, and I roll my eyes.
“Myndi has just had a bad breakup and the last thing she needs is Mr. One-night Stand hitting on her.”
He slams a hand over his chest, feigning upset.“You slay me, little sis. Such cruel words.”
“Don’t even try to deny it. There’s a running roll call of your conquests on the wall in the girls’ restroom.” A sour taste fills my mouth.“And that is not something I should ever have to see.” I’m not confirming it’s a list of the hottest guys on campus with each girl rating their skills on a scale of one to ten. Or the fact he and Slater are more than holding their own at the top of the list. Ugh. A sister does not need to know this stuff.
He puffs out his chest, and his lips curl up at the corners.“Can’t help it if the ladies love what I’m offering.” He shoots us a smug grin.“It’s all in the James’ genes. You’d know it if you hadn’t attached yourself to Woods when you were still in diapers.”
I smack his chest this time.“I was fifteen when Dylan and I first started going out. Asshat.”
“Does Woods know you get off on beating up defenseless men?” He grabs his chin between his thumb and forefinger.“Oris that the standard he’s used to?”
I fist my hands into knots, working hard to quell the urge to thump him again.“Ugh.You are so freaking annoying. Thank God, it’s your last year here.”
Quick as a flash, he grabs me into a headlock, messing up my hair.“Don’t be mean, Tornado. You know you’ll miss your favorite brother.”
