For wedding planner Everly Vaughn, her best friend's high-profile Caribbean island wedding could be her big break. The good news? She's starting her own business. The bad news? Well...
The wedding of the season.
Twelve days to pull it off.
A bride who's been engaged four times but never makes it down the aisle.
And the bride's brother who she's trying desperately to resist...to no avail.
What could possibly go wrong? (Seriously? Absolutely everything.)
Happily Ever After was a quick, sweet read. I wasn't sure how Everly was going to get her HEA but Meyers delivered.
Everly hasn't seen Austin since that night. She's essentially buried herself in work and her head in the sand for fear of hearing about Austin's antics with the ladies. She's so afraid of putting her heart on the line. However, they're about to come face-to-face whether she's ready or not because she's started her own wedding planning service and planning Lucky's wedding - Austin's sister - is first on her agenda.
I enjoyed Happily Ever After even though it wasn't a deep read. The close friendship between Everly and The Girls was fun and endearing. I also saw glimpses of Everly spreading her wings and growing more confident in her job - which was nice because she's dang good at it.
I most liked seeing how that night and the fallout affected both Everly and Austin. They've known each other for most of their lives and the relationship they had was as close, if not closer, that the one she had with Lucky. Both Austin and Everly realized they wanted to build on that but had to make a few changes in themselves so the could have their HEA.
Like I said, sweet! Although I wouldn't have minded a few more pages to really flesh out things, Meyers did deliver a good, if predictable, story with characters I was pulling for. And I will finish up this little series with Willow's story, Yours Truly.
