How could he do this to me?
I believed him.
I trusted him.
When Skylar is faced with her biggest fear, old insecurities cause her to do what she did best.
Hide from the truth.
Wyatt was determined not to let the only woman he loved run from him. He only had one choice.
He would fight for her.
Both would be tested.
Each would experience pain.
Will truth conquer all?
Time would test their love.
Fate would decide their future.

~ 5 Sky’s the Limit Stars ~
What an amazing conclusion to Wyatt and Sky’s story!! I absolutely LOVED everything Ella gave us in this book. Perfect ending for Wyatt, Sky, Michelle and Mitch.
Forever Beautiful is the second book in Ella Bordeaux’s Beautiful Series. This book is NOT a standalone novel and needs to be read after reading Beautiful. I also think this book progressed into either the Mature YA genre or a New Adult genre. Which works for their story, because we get to see them grow from High School students into College students then onto Adulthood. I loved watching the progression of Wyatt and Sky.
This book picks up right where Beautiful ended. What I loved about this book was that Ella didn’t drag out the cliffhanger and the resolution too long. She got to the point and started working on fixing what was broken with Wyatt and Sky. What did surprise me a little was how much Michelle and Mitch played a part in this book. I almost felt that at times we lost fact to this being Sky and Wyatt’s story. Now that didn’t take away from my enjoyment of the story and I was glad we got to see more of Michelle and Mitch, I just wasn’t expecting it.
What I really loved about this book was that Ella kept the characters just as sweet and loving as we saw in the first book but also showed the growth of the character on personal levels. I don’t know if that makes sense, but I guess what I mean is that the characters we fell in love with in Book 1 are still the same ones we get in Book 2. Sometimes when we have a sequel to a book, we see the author change the core of the character from the original story and I know that drives me crazy. That is not the case here. I loved that the growth she showed Sky and Wyatt to have felt real, almost like we were watching them in real life and not fiction.
Even though this book was written by Kelly Elliott’s Pen Name…. Ella Bourdeaux, we still got to see the many things we come to love and expect from a Kelly Elliott book. Just meant for a younger age group.
So if you are a fan of Kelly Elliott’s books, I would recommend you read the other side of her as Ella Bordeaux. If you like a sweet Mature YA/New Adult book that is focused more on the storyline then the sexy times, then this is the story for you to read. I have to say I absolutely loved reading another side of Kelly’s writing and I look forward to more of Ella’s books in the future!!!!
Grabbing my purse, I headed to the door. Opening it, I let out a scream when I saw Zeb there with his hand up, ready to knock.
“Holy shit, Skylar! You scared the piss out of me.”
Covering my chest with my hand, I took in a few deep breaths. “Zeb, what are you doing here?”
He shook his head and laughed. “I told Michelle I’d meet her today. I have a few things to pick up, and…well, I wanted to say good-bye to her in person. I figured y’all would be back by now.”
“Did she not text you? She had to stay back in Waco with Wyatt. She had a leak; her hot water went out or something.”
Zeb smiled. “No. I didn’t get the text.”
I frowned. “Weird.”
He shrugged. “Well, would you mind if I came in really quick and grabbed my stuff? It’s just a couple of shirts.”
I lifted my brows. Why in the world does he have clothes here? He’d never spent the night.
“Sweatshirts. I wore a few over here and forgot them.”
Zeb and his sweatshirts. I swore, he had one for every day of the year.
With a chuckle, I motioned for him to come in. “I was getting ready to leave, but if it will just take a few minutes, no problem.”
Zeb walked past me and headed to Michelle’s room. I shut the door and made my way into the kitchen. Glancing at my watch, I still had a few minutes to spare. Might as well grab some water and a few snacks.
I had a feeling it was going to be a long night. I hated Tupperware parties. Or Pimped-Out Chef or whatever the hell it was called. We were in college. Half of us lived in dorm rooms. Why in the hell do we need kitchen stuff?
Opening the refrigerator, I grabbed an apple and a cheese stick. When I turned back around, Zeb was standing in the kitchen.
I screamed and dropped my snacks. “Jesus, Zeb. You scared me again.”
By the look on his face, I instantly knew something wasn’t right. Everything I’d learned in self-defense class was pulsing through my body. It was like a sign was flashing, Warning!
“You’ve got to know, I’ve always liked you, Skylar.”
Panic started to set in as I quickly took in the situation. When I glanced down, I noticed he had nothing in his hands. “Where, um…where are your sweatshirts?”
He looked down at his hands and then back up at me. “I know you want me as much as I want you. I’ve seen the way you look at me.”
Oh God. This isn’t happening to me again.
Skylar Woods unknowingly drew Wyatt Smith toward her. He wanted…needed to learn everything about her. Though he sensed her beauty was more than just skin deep, Wyatt struggled to understand the sadness she attempted to make with an amazing smile.
When Skylar’s eyes met Wyatt’s for the first time, her breath caught and she couldn’t look away from the new guy standing in the school office smiling at her. The connection only get when Wyatt sat next to her in English class, allowing Skylar to dare to believe he might actually be interested in getting to know her.
For the first time in months, she felt alive.
The moment Wyatt expressed an interest, the notes started again…the ones that reminded her of a past she could never move beyond—the event that changed her life forever and robber her of any change of happiness.
Never believing the rumors being spread around school about Skylar, Wyatt made sure he went out of his way to prove how much he cared about her.
But when the past resurfaces, will Wyatt stand by her side? Or will he turn against her like everyone else?
