Now like all healing you gotta deal with the awkward itchy parts of the process, and the will they run into each other. . . And how that first meeting is gonna go? I loved how J.a threw Jeb in there as a buffer haha it worked perfectly it kind of added some levity to the situation but it also clued Marlo in to the fact that her disappearing act had a ripple effect on more than just Ever. Now the good part happens! And when I say good part (the whole thing is good!. . . But we get to this 2 characters we love trying to get reacquainted and feeling out how the past has shaped them) people are rarely still the same as when they were in high school, and I loved them getting to know the more mature versions of themselves.
Along the way there are some hard parts. . . Duh! Healing and putting the pieces back together is never easy guys! But sometimes pushing through the hurt, and misunderstandings and bringing all our demons out into the light can be freeing in a way and this story definitely ends on a positive note. . .
Marlo and Ever were hot as teenagers, but as adults? They sizzled off the page. Their need and longing for each other only multiplied with time. J.A. DeRouen gave us a beautifully written story about true love and finally facing your past when it catches up to you. 5+ stars!
Within the framework that she's set for herself, she's found happiness with her friends, satisfaction with her work, and contentment with not-friends-just-benefits relationships. Just so long as she keeps telling herself that love is something for other people, something she's just not cut out for, everything is under control.
Maintaining that control when the boy she once loved, the boy she still loves, despite her attempts to convince herself otherwise suddenly re-enters her life becomes problematic at best.
Having been given in the first book of the Over Duet the back story, the reasons behind why Marlo is the sassy, bright, effervescent though often crass personality that has lightened the pages of all of the novels in the entire Over Series, finally, here in Ever Over After, J.A. DeRouen lets everything come to a head.
Everett (A.K.A. Ever) has finally found the girl who disappeared years before taking a part of his heart with her, and will stop at nothing to get her back. Marlo, for her part, is not remotely interested, and this begins a tug of war, the ultimate winner of which is us, the reader.
Contrasting lighthearted moments with heart wrenching ones Marlo and Ever's story takes the reader on a journey that is without a doubt an emotional workout masquerading as entertainment. Clearly character driven, I found myself surprised time and again by the twists and turns the plot led me through but at the end was more than happy that I'd been granted the privilege of sharing the ride.
I've loved everything I've ever read by this author and today? That hasn't changed.
This ending was perfection. J.A. DeRouen's words were, once again, magic. She really knows how to write beautiful characters with beautiful souls that will stick with you for a very long time. In Low Over High, we gained insight into Marlo and Ever's past. We saw how they came together and how they broke apart. We read about the tragic events that befell them both. And my heart completely broke for them. And now, with Ever Over After we finally get what happened next. AND YOU DON'T WANT TO MISS IT!!
This book was full of laughter and snarkiness and hope and anger and healing. And, hello?! Any book that has Friends references will forever be awesome in my mind.
Once again, DeRouen's characters grab your heart. Marlo is my #1 lady. I will love her forever. And Ever was just amazing. I loved watching his growth and determination to get where he wanted to be. (side note: Cain is still my #1 man. *sigh* I will forever ride the Cain Train.) I loved seeing all of the characters from past books and seeing what was going on in their lives. But I think that the one who grabbed my attention the most (besides Marlo and Ever) was Jeb. Oh my goodness, I want that boy to have a HEA (DeRouen, I'm looking at you while I say that!!).
So, to wrap it all up... Read this duet. Read the heck out of it. Low Over High was one of my top favorites from 2016. And I have no doubt, Ever Over After will be in my top favorites at the end of this year. Now, I need someone to cook me some delicious Cajun cuisine, STAT!!
"And I want nighttime walks longer than my legs can carry me and bear hugs tighter than my lungs can stand. I want all those things with you. It's always been you, Low."
