“I read your book … It was good!” — Nicholas Sparks, author of The Notebook
“Moving and meaningful… Its suspenseful ending leaves us all waiting with bated breath for the romantic sequel…This is more than just an urban love story, it’s a human story.” — Abiola Abrams, host of BET’s The Best Shorts
“Captures those fleeting but powerful moments in young love.” — Luis J. Rodriguez, author of Always Running
“Forever My Lady is a wonderful book. It describes in vivid words about the main character, Dio, and the problems he goes through for his girl. Just by the prologue anyone could tell that it was going to be a gripping page-turner. It’s about love and doing what’s right for yourself and others.” — VOYA
“Dio “Playboy” Rodríguez grows up poor with a drunk single mother in gritty Las Vegas, leading him into gang life at 13. Now 17, Dio hides a softer side beneath a fierce exterior that’s known only to his middle school sweetheart, Jennifer. But when a drive-by leaves Jennifer wounded and sends Dio to prison boot camp, their soul mate relationship is put to the test. Rivera, who originally self-published this debut, traces a classic redemptive arc: perpetually scowling Dio resists the authority of drill instructor Jackson and clashes with fellow inmates, but he pours out his heart in letters to Jennifer, forms meaningful peer relationships and gains an appreciation for discipline. A genuine care for dynamic Dio allows Rivera to deliver a sincere story of transformation.” — Publishers Weekly
“Jeff Rivera’s thought-provoking novel, Forever My Lady, is part romance, part coming-of-age tale. Reminiscent of novels by S.E. Hinton, Rivera’s story vividly portrays the intensity of young love and a young man’s struggle for redemption. This touching book kept me in its grip from the first page to the last.” — Karen McQuestion, author of A Scattered Life
