Amie's Review of Ever Over After by J.A. DeRouen ~ RELEASE BLITZ ~ GIVEAWAY ~


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.

 Amie's 5 STAR REVIEW 
OMG love the conclusion to this story and what seems to be the ending of all the Overs we have read in the past couple years !! It was once again great to get a brief catch up with some of our faves but to also get the resolution between Low and Ever that we all so desperately wanted. Of course that didn't come easy but rest assured it does come. 
I have to say despite her past Marlow has come a long way and although she did suffer and still has some issues with her past she has a great job , great friends , does tremendous work in the community and keeps a pretty decent no strings attached relationship afloat. Of course we then have Ever , again despite his addictions , heartache and spiral down he has come far as well. He is a success in his business , his recovery and the mending of his relationship with his mother. The only thing missing for him is Low. He may have finally found her BUT knowing her she will NOT make it easy for him to wear her down this time. 
We get a bit of angsty super hot fun with Marlow attempting to let Ever in just enough to get what she needs but not enough to heal their relationship. Thankfully Ever is far enough along in his recovery and life to have a handle on keeping put and fighting for what he wants. After weeks of letting things go her way Ever gets his favor out of Low. At that point we all get a glimpse into the horrors that Ever suffered 8 years ago. Of course Low's heart melts a bit but it isn't all clear sailing after that. Seeing how their friends and jobs intertwine was fun and watching them piece themselves back together was even better. I won't say I am happy with the outcome of Remy's part in the story but just thankful that we got to witness Ever break that tie !! Sad to see the duet end and know the series is also OVER - then again so happy that I was able to read it all and enjoy this author's work.

Amie's 5 star review of Low Over High -

I fell in love with this author when reading the Over series , I have no clue how I missed the creating of this duet BUT I am so glad I caught the email about it when I did !! I love series connecting multiple characters/couples. I love catching up and seeing how things have developed and also getting the back stories of some of the sideliners we meet. This is Marlow's story and wow it is a great one. From meeting her in the Over series we know a bit about her present life but despite the pro/epilogue being set years later the meat of this story focuses on Low's past - the story of a fun loving girl opening up and taking chances turned into a hollow shell doing anything to escape the reality. 

Heading from the safety of Texas to the crazy wild ways of New Orleans Marlow begins to build a relationship with her estranged mom while making new friends and finishing high school. As always we have the mysterious bad boy that ends up being shoved in her face due to mutual friends, work and school. Ever is the classic hot boy that you can't help falling for and despite her efforts Low falls fast. Ever may seem like he has it all BUT his past and his family life are riddled with heartache. He spends his weekends away with his best friend and tries to avoid the horrible confrontations with his parents. As a result he attends high school while living with his Uncle. Right when the going gets good with Low and Ever tragedy strikes for one and the other is pushed to the side. Someone spirals out of control and as the other attempts to save them lands themselves in their own spiral. In one of those horrible disappearing acts that makes a reader want to scream Low and Ever are gone from each others lives and we are left knowing that we have to read Ever's book next to see where they end up 8 years later !!
