FINDING EVER AFTER (Ever After #1)
AUTHOR: STEPHANIE HOFFMAN MCMANUS
Stephanie Hoffman McManus has written another breathtaking story! FINDING EVER AFTER, the first book in her EVER AFTER SERIES, is dynamic! I love the story and the characters are amazing!
Jaxyn, also known as Jazz, had a mother she absolutely adored. Her mother read her fairy tales every night. They always started with "Once Upon A Time" and ended with "Happily Ever After". They only had each other, and Jazz's mother made sure that her childhood was magical. Unfortunately, at age 12, Jazz learned that happily ever after didn't always happen. Her mother passed away, and left her with the following advice:
"Promise me you'll be careful with your heart. That you'll protect it and
won't give it away to just anyone. Wait for the man who will cherish it.
You are my Princess. Don't settle for anyone who doesn't see that. You
deserve a real life Prince."
"There's going to be pain and disappointment in life, but don't let them
break you. Don't ever settle."
Jazz spent the next few years with her father, whom she had not met before, and her life took a drastic, dangerous turn. Feeling desperate, Jazz escaped to try and find herself and didn't even tell her two best friends she was leaving. They were devastated.
Hoping that her best friends could somehow forgive her, three years later she decides to return to her childhood home, where she had so many memories of her precious mother. The one thing she didn't count on was meeting HOT, HOT, Kyden McCabe, the sexy, tattooed and pierced lead singer of a local, popular rock band. He was everything she knew she shouldn't want. She wanted a Prince. He wanted a one night stand.
Jazz was fighting the enormous attraction she has for Ky. Ky was also fighting his explosive attraction to Jazz. Neither one were having much luck. Then her past rears its ugly head and she finds herself in danger again.
Will Jazz find her Prince? Will it be Ky? Can she escape her dangerous past?
Stephanie - I was not ready for this book to end. I can not wait for the second book in this series!
Jaxyn had a pretty good life up until she hit 12 years old then he went all down hill. She had to suffer through some things no little girl should but she always had her best friend Sebastian with her but sometimes you need to run away. After being gone for 3 years she decides to come back home and fight for her life. To be stronger than she was when she had to run. But she never counted on finding Kyden, a hot, tattooed,pierced musician who went through girls like no other. She always wanted a fairy tale kind of love and her mom always told her not to settle for less and KY was definitely not a prince. Bit with threats of the past coming back and KY showing a different side of him her heart might decide against her head. And she might lose it all before she even knew what she needed or wanted.
I really did love this book and didn't want to put it down!! There is some mature content and of course some rowdy rockers but so well worth the read. I highly recommend this book actually probably the whole series because I'm going into book 2 now! :) Once upon a time.......

After suffering the loss of her mother and escaping from an abusive father. Jax finally returns from exile to be with her best friend and his new friendship group including Kyden.
All throughout this book the sexual tension between Jax and Kyden was intense and I was disappointed that there were no steamy scenes.
The characters had depth and were written really well. I did go through a roller coaster of emotions with Jax and her troubled past.
I would have given this book 5 stars but I just felt that waiting for marriage before doing the deed is unrealistic in today's modern world. Other than this the book was an easy read that kept me captivated with just enough within the plot to make it a page turner
The start of the book I was silently hoping Jaxyn and Sebastian would get together because it seemed like such a cute relationship. But when we were introduced to Kyden my allegiance changed.
Jayxn’s mum bestowed important advice to her and she has used this advice. Especially after some of the awful things that have happened to her.
‘Promise me you’ll be careful with your heart. That you’ll protect it and won’t give it away to just anyone. Wait for the man who will cherish it. You are my princess. Don’t settle for anyone who doesn’t see that. You deserve a real life prince’
Of course the one who sees her as a princess, is not a real life prince. But that does not matter as long as he can see her for the person she is.
‘You’re not ready for me yet, Princess, but when you are, I promise you won’t have to ask whether or not I’m going to do it, but you need to know right now that I’m not a prince and I never will be’
Kyden is a character in himself. He is definitely on my top 5 list of book boyfriends. His past makes him act in certain ways, which is why he is deemed as the bad boy. Jayxn did not stand a chance and she knew it.
‘I know I’m pretty lame, falling for the bad boy. Could I be any more cliché?’
I am now going into hiding to read the rest of the series. This series has me so hooked. You are such an amazing author Stephanie.
I found a lot of the characters petty and childish. I didn't like Jaxyn at all and the majority of the time she just annoyed me. I felt she played the victim a lot and I hate weak main characters that I don't connect with.
Also Ky was your usual bad boy player that has been done to death. I don't know, maybe i have just read too many of those books and I have very few that stand out and stay with me.
Also i found myself skipping through pages as it was becoming very boring. The writer seemed to be putting in a lot of detail of the character getting ready for the night, something that had happened not 2 chapters before. It was boring and i was surprised that i was skimming pages because i never do that.
The ending was also very predictable, in my opinion but as soon as we were introduced to the man in Jaxyn's nightmares, i knew how it would end. So a pretty poor book to others like this that i have read. I haven't read this writers work before and i doubt i will now as 3 stars was pretty generous.
Such a beautiful strong story...I can honestly say that I loved every single page... even come back of lunch late because I couldn't put it down!
The book grabbed me from the get go and knew I would love the rest.
There are honestly too many good parts and reasons why I loved this book so much.
Please just buy this book, you will not regret.
