Cover Design: DCP Designs
Release Date: January 9, 2017
SynopsisMarlo … wild-eyed, untamed, and every single thing I’ve ever wanted from this life. I wasn’t ready for her back then. I was a stupid boy with adult feelings and no idea what to do with them. I squandered away every chance she gave me. Yes, love like ours either burns white hot or crumbles under the pressure. And now I’m back to sift through the rubble. Questions and excuses are two things I have in spades. What I need now are answers. Answers and Low. Always Low. My name is Ever Montgomery, and this is my story of love resurrected.
Ever Montgomery has made so many mistakes in the past. He’s used to running from them. But this time around, years later, Ever only wants to run toward the love he’s never forgotten, Marlo Rivers. The problem is that Marlo isn’t the same doe eyed young girl he knew back then. Her past has shaped Marlo into the woman she is today. Her heart belongs to no one but her. She is determined to never give someone the power to destroy it again. With Ever back in her life, it almost seems impossible. It’s as if her heart knows nothing else but to love Ever. But nothing is that simple. Loving Ever was dangerous. There are still secrets between them that may keep them apart. Especially when things start to unravel. `
“I won’t survive this time. Some lessons you don’t just learn. Some lessons are tattooed on your soul.”
Their love story is tumultuous, but it’s theirs. It will break you. It will affect you on the most visceral level. How do they go back to what they once had? And can either survive if they don’t make it this time? This is a story of love unfiltered and raw. One that is told in honesty and grace. A love story of human resilience in the face of apprehension and despair. Out of fear comes fearlessness. And that is their love. Fearless. Inspiring. Absolute. Their love is permanent and steadfast. Even through all the darkness, their love endured. It persevered. It simply never stopped.
"How can we be anything different than what we've always been?"
"And what's that?"
Have you ever been so embedded deep inside a man’s heart that you can’t breathe? This is what the author does for her readers. She puts you THERE. Right deep within the heart of Ever Montgomery. You are overwhelmed by his grief, his regret, but most of all, the depth of his love for Marlo. His heart only knows hers. And you feel it with not only the conviction of his words but most of all the power in his actions.
"Love changes over time. The edges may fill, the butterflies hibernate...but some things, the best things, sharpen and flourish as years pass. Ever is the best thing."
The writing left me breathless. It was flawless in it’s delivery and remarkable in it’s execution. The author’s talent to truly capture such emotional complexities among her characters is unparalleled. The words of this book read like poetry. Deep, meaningful, and meticulous. The words will astound you with its eloquent and transcending prose.
"He's the creation and the rapture. Every good and bad thing all wrapped up into one. And now, after all these years, he may just be my resurrection."
Ever Over After is a story of choosing your forever over fear. Reminding us that love is the best risk we can take. It’s a story of the pursuit of love and forgiveness as well as hope for a second chance. Spellbinding and compelling, this was heartbreaking yet beautiful. There was light in darkness. This story was moving beyond words. To say this was one of the most poignant and heartfelt romance storylines I’ve ever read would be an understatement. Don’t read this book. Experience it. Love it. I know I did. I wholeheartedly, and without reservation recommend that every lover of romance reads this entire duet.
