~Review: Forever Baby by Ellie Wade~

Typical college student, Olivia Marshall embarks on a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Spain with her best friend, Nolan, a handsome all-American. After three years, they share a special bond, but there’s a fine line between friendship and…more. 
Spain turns out to be more of an experience than Olivia imagined. She meets Andres Cruz, a mysterious, sexy man. Lead singer of a band, his charm and passion is rarely denied, and Olivia is immediately drawn to him. 

Torn between two men promising her forever, Olivia will discover if she can trust herself and her instincts as she chooses between the comfort of what she’s always known or the excitement of a connection she’s never felt before.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Olivia meet Nolan her freshman year at college.  He became her best friend and they did everything together, like holding hands and hugging.  They were not boyfriend/girlfriend, but BFFs.   Both will be going as foreign exchange students to Seville, Spain for the summer and will be studying Spanish at a local university.  Olivia’s major is bilingual Spanish education and Nolan’s major is international business.  They both will be living with Spanish families for the summer.  Olivia’s host and new roommate is Nadia and Nolan’s will be Pedro. 

They are accepted into Nadia’s and Pedro’s group and the first night they all go out to a bar.  Olivia sees the most beautiful man across the dance floor that she has ever seen and feels an instant connection with him.  She later meets her mystery guy, Andres who is also friends with the group.  He is part of a local band and an artist.  Andres dropped out of college to try and find out what he wants to do with his life.  When he meets Olivia, he fights the attraction until he can no longer deny it.  They become inseparable from that moment.  He is loving, kind, attentive and possessive.  Andres is everything that Olivia wants and more.

Olivia’s time in Spain is up and it is time for her to go back to the States.  Andres has promised her to be hers and only hers and they will find a way, but Olivia has reservations and his past history with women.  Can he be faithful to her?  Then when they return home Nolan tells her that he wants to be more than her friend.  She loves Nolan, she loves Andres what is she going to do?  The book tells of their struggle to find the answers!
