Everly, on the other hand, was harder for me to really get behind. In general I love the idea of a troubled socialite and even with all of the mistakes Everly makes (and made previously in her life) I still liked her. She's a spoiled socialite, drug addict who lives in her own little world and treats people pretty terribly, but still I really rooted for her and liked her.
Where I struggled with the book was the writing. Not anything technically about the writing, that thankfully was sound or I wouldn't be giving this book three stars, but more how Paula told the story. Lots and lots of the story takes place in either Everly or Beckett's heads and eventually it just got repetitive and kind of boring. Even halfway through the book I was tired of them whining and hiding things and generally feeling sorry for themselves and doomed to be miserable forever. I get why they felt that way, and I don't think their feelings were inauthentic, but still, it just dragged on for too long and I wish they had spent more time talking and getting to know each other rather than both brooding and hiding.Read more ›
First of all, I want to say out loud that I was not prepared for this book in any way. It made me late for work, it made me want to extend my lunch hour, and it made me want to stay home on a Friday night and finish it.
Everly After is the epitome of two broken souls finding their way to each other and navigating life together. Their lives are better when they are together. Apart, they are both a mess.
“”Are you going to kiss me? ‘ He tilts his head closer, his voice warm against my cheek. ‘You won’t have to ask when I finally am.’”
Gah…so I completely loved Everly. She is an American heiress that dropped her life in Manhattan and moved to Paris to get away from it all by working in a Parisian café. I struggled with the fact that I shouldn’t like her; she was a complete hot mess. Her social life always made the headlines on Page Six, and not for a good reason. But, I couldn’t not like her. My heart just broke for her because all she wanted was someone to love her.
“I want to be the girl I am only with you. All the time. I want to stop dreaming her up.”
The one person Everly’s known, Hudson, for almost her whole life is in even hotter mess. He claims to love her, but deep down I don’t even know if he has the ability to love her. Her way to deal with all the crap she’s been through is to literally shut everyone out. Well…and possibly party just a wee bit too much. But, Everly’s a master at playing this role and continues to do so until she meets Beckett.
“Kiss me, pet. Stay with me.”
Beckett is also dealing with his own sorts of problems. He is a traumatized war correspondent on leave after being kidnapped in Afghanistan. He is struggling day-to-day trying writing his novel.Read more ›
I started this book a bit on the fence because Between Everything & Us is my favourite book ever, I have never read a more wonderful and spectacular book in my life, so I was a bit scared Everly After wouldn't be as good but I'm immensely happy now that I've finished it because I was wrong, Everly After is just as wonderful.
I won't lie to you, this was definitely a hard book to read, Everly and Beckett are two broken humans in different ways and this wasn't the type of situation where two brokens make a whole, their pieces were all so scattered I worried constantly that they would never be able to get to a good place, particularly Everly.
Everly wasn't the type of character you are frustrated by and kind of want to shake so she'll get her crap together, for me she felt like the character that was so far gone I knew no one would be able to get her back no matter how hard they tried, not even Beckett, unless she decided to help herself first. But I also knew that I couldn't give up on her because during the scenes where she was happy, during the scenes where wanted to try, I couldn't help but want to cheer for her.
I loved Beckett because I couldn't tell if he was a romantic or a cynic but I could always tell that Rebecca couldn't have written a better suited character to caught my attention and make me root for him the same way I was rooting for Everly.
I don't think I have ever loved two books by the same author as much as I love this and Between Everything & Us. I am amazed by how she can put feelings and situations into the most beautiful words and make it all seem so real, every single scene in this book plays like a movie in your head, it's heartbreaking and emotional and the most wonderful experience anyone could ask for reading wise.

Everly After isn't what I'd classify as your typical new adult contemporary read. It had quite a dark and depressing tone during many parts of the book. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Jennifer

A moody tale of two wounded people. Everly and Beckett try to help each other, but mostly hurt one another. I was reminded of Ernest Hemingway's stories of life after World War II. Read morePublished 20 months ago by Laura VG
