Format: Paperback
Happily Ever Now by Nicole S. Rouse is a contemporary, Christian novel that realistically looks at a marriage in trouble and many of the reasons why. Renee and Jerome have been married almost seventeen years, since high school. Though no one believed they should be married they thought love would be enough. The years brought major success for Renee and mediocre accomplishments for Jerome. To deaden the feeling of inadequacy he turned to alcohol and eventually another woman. For years, Jerome and Renee have been living in a home divided.

Taylor has looked for Mr. Right for years and not finding him she is trying to find love in the arms of another woman's husband. Jerome has convinced her he is going to leave Renee but never does. Though she has friends to talk to she tries to keep the relationship, even when she discovers that Jerome is attached to his wife. A series of embarrassing situations and even a new man does not stop her from longing for Jerome.

Ms. Rouse has a wonderful way of revealing what these characters are going through and how they are struggling to make proper choices. I loved the way she dealt with a common issue of how men feel when their wives is more successful. She also allowed us to see that the relationship outside the marriage is never quite as simple as it may seem. Though we can see how allowing God to work in their lives is the best way to handle complicated relationships, a few twists allow us to know it is never as easy as just believing.

Happily Ever Now is recommended for all who love a realistic, well-told story.

Meet the Thomas family. Married young, two sons, and well, the happiness, it appears to have dried up some time ago. You know how it is; husband and wife seem to be slowly drifting apart. Resentment, anger and lack of communication have allowed Renee, the wife, to be absorbed in work. Dedicated to her newfound success, she's a hard worker, and while she's great at being a mother, she's lost her drive for being a wife. Jerome, the husband, is about the same. He's one of those men who feel he's unwanted because the wife is making more money and climbing the corporate express. Instead of trying to better himself, he allows alcohol and Taylor to soothe and comfort him. Their house is far from being a home. Is there anyway these two people can become one again, or has too much happened?

`Happily Ever Now,' written by Nicole S. Rouse, is a good first read. While the drama isn't as thick as I would've preferred, and there are some editing issues, `Happily Ever Now' is a refreshing look on love, forgiveness and hope. I look forward to reading more from this author and soon.

Sisters, God is truly able!

I am an avid, yet VERY picky, reader of just about everything - mostly fiction. So when I heard about this book I figured I'd add it to my long list of books to read. I was in for quite a ride!
Nicole Rouse is a fresh new talent on the Christian Fiction scene who is an incredibly gifted storyteller.
Happily Ever Now is a fictional tale (or is it?) about Renee, a married woman whose marriage is slowly falling to pieces as her husband Jerome breaks his marital vows and has an affair with another woman, Taylor. Renee's dilemma, as a Christian woman and mom of two boys, is how to handle this traumatic situation as God would have her to handle it.
This book is told from the points of view of jaded wife Renee, her cheating husband Jerome, and the scandolous mistress Taylor.
I thoroughly enjoyed the way Nicole weaves such a magnetic story together and had me up late at night, turning pages and needing to know what happened next. Her characters come to life and you can truly identify with their feelings.
Nicole has a gift and I'm anticipating more from her in the future!

So this is my first read by this author. I can say I totally enjoyed this book. Personally, I don't like reading books about adultry, I'm more of a happily ever after reader. I have to say this book kept me coming back for more. It made you question your own faith in God. You will definiteley go on an emotional roller coaster ride. I have to say although Renee the wife had her faults I was definiteley rooting for her. I never been in her shoes and don't want too but you could feel her pain. Jerome, the husband I did not care for and felt he was spineless. No excuse for what he did and I felt he didn't feel remorseful for cheating. I think that is why I didn't care for him. Now Taylor, wow!!! She needed a good ole fashion beat down. I'm just saying. I felt nothing for her as well. That is why I like this book. It makes you look into yourself. As a Christian, it makes you really question how you HOPE you would respond in that situation if you were the wife. Will you trust God or lean onto YOUR own understanding?

I absolutely loved this book and could relate to Renee on so many levels. I knew exactly how she felt and felt her pain. Putting your faith in God really does work miracles. I literally did not want this story to end and I am hoping there will be a sequel. I am dying to find out what happens with Jerome, Taylor and Renee. I have a feeling this story is not over yet. I highly recommend this book. Keep up the good work!!!
