“EVER AFTER is a cute small town romance with just a bit of corruption and chocked full of cute cuddly animals that I found very sweet to read.”
~ Under the Covers

This is the second book I read by this author (and in this series) and I keep coming back to it because of the big focus on animals.  I’m a sucker for a cute puppy!  In this installment, the heroine Olivia is a bit of an activist against animal cruelty.  In her case, it’s more about the treatment of chickens at the local plant.  One night of drinking and one bright idea to graffiti said plant and she ends up spending the night in jail.  Taken there by hunky police officer, Pete Samson.

I love the complete opposites of Pete and Olivia’s personalities!  He’s a by-the-book police officer, who is bottling up inside a lot of guilt about something in his past.  She’s a free spirit.  Her big shot lawyer father expected her to go to law school and follow in his footsteps but she’s more concerned with following her true passion.  She loves animals, wants to fight to protect them.  A vegetarian who likes to meditate in the early mornings at the park.  Now how does that mix with straight laced Pete?  I absolutely adored them together!

Olivia is pretty mature, which I always enjoy.  She has come to a crossroads in her life where she has to decide whether she continues following her dreams or she “grows up” and follows the path her parents expect her to.  She has a good head on her shoulders, even when she’s taking risks to stand up for her ideals.  Pete on the other hand is the one that doesn’t show you much about himself.  Add in to that the fact that he shouldn’t be dating someone he arrested unless he wants to compromise his job, and he’s got a lot of turmoil to deal with.  All while trying to keep her safe.

EVER AFTER is a cute small town romance with just a bit of corruption and chocked full of cute cuddly animals that I found very sweet to read.  I will be looking for more in either this series or by the same author.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
