Ever Over After ~ J.A. DeRouen ~ New Release and Review

Ever Over After (The Over Duet #2)
Cover Design: DCP Designs
Release Date: January 9, 2017
Marlo … 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.

Elizabeth's Review

5 Stars - One of the Best I've Read

Review Copy Provided by Author

Word of caution - to get the full impact of this book, you really need to back story that is book 1 in the duet, Low Over High. This can be read as a stand alone, but wouldn't have the emotional impact that comes from reading it as a set.

That said-I would have to call this more of an emotional read vs traditional romance read. Ms. deRouen takes Marlo, a secondary character throughout the series, and forces her really face a pivotal moment from her past and truly deal with the results.

When Ever finds Marlo after an 8 year separation, they have wounds to heal and walls to scale. I appreciated the fact that while the characters dealt with their issues they didn't dwell on them.
It was interesting to read adult Marlo knowing her history and what made her feel the way she does. It also made me root for her and Ever as they faced the past to see if the foundation for a future could exist.

Ms. DeRouen specializes in books that make the reader stop and think. Love is at the core of all her stories, but sometimes she makes you wonder if that is enough. This is a fabulous duet. If you haven't read this author yet, Low over High and Ever Over After would be a good place to start.
