Delilah Spencer is broken. Alone and starting over in her best friend's city is just what life calls for right now. She has a violent and painful past to put behind her and a lot to do to move on with her life. She has no intention of letting anyone get close anytime soon. Maybe ever.

Samuel Young used to be broken. Now, the single father accepts his past for what it is, raises his son Mason, and is trying to find some happiness. And while he thinks he's found that in Delilah, she's not sold.

As the two begin to push and pull, Delilah finds herself on the receiving end of strange happenings.

In a world where everyone has a past, what happens when they collide? Is the future shaken? Can they overcome it or will it rob them once again of what they deserve?

Can love survive when a heartache from your past intertwines with your present?

“By the end, I learned that a person doesn’t have to pack a suitcase and kiss you goodbye to leave you. Sometimes they will slip away quietly right next to you and you cannot reach them.”

I was pleasantly impressed with For Now, the debut novel by poet Kat Savage. It’s a love story with a dark background and a suspenseful twist. The plot is imaginative, compelling, and bravely deals with some very heavy subject matter. It was evident this novel was written by someone who’s endured the tragedies of heartbreak.
Delilah Spencer is a woman navigating the difficult process of healing after a painful past relationship. The last thing on her mind is having anything to do with a man. Yet, Delilah can’t help begrudgingly finding bits of hope in the charming and understanding Samuel Young.
However, an unforeseeable twist of fate pushes beyond the limits of Delilah’s fragile psyche. Afer all, how much can one person really endure? Will Delilah be able to move on, heal, and find the happiness she deserves?  For Now definitely has an ending you won’t want to miss!
My only reason for a 3.5-star rating is that, at times, I struggled with the writing style. The dialogue didn’t flow for me and some scenes didn’t seem to completely develop or transition smoothly.  
In spite of that, the creativity of the plot made up for my disconnect with the writing style. I was definitely able to look past the glitches and genuinely wanted to see this story through to the end.
I want to thank Kat Savage for the opportunity to read this ARC, it was a pleasure!
