Everlast – Alex Grayson
Lincoln and Molly’s love story continues as they moved into this old house. Molly and Lincoln are wanting to be parents of a third child and are willing to try. She finds old letters in the attic and wants to find the families that they originally belonged to. Among the life and stresses of life, she has a medical accident that propels her to finding out about her grandparents as well as analyzing her relationship with Lincoln. With the perfect fairy tale romance, fate does like to throw some rather surprising news in their direction.
This was a perfect conclusion to the romance story. I had read the novelette that was about their beginning and this was lengthier. I was surprised it wasn’t a novelette and that it was an actual novel length. This didn’t skip out on a lot of years as the novelette had done. We saw more of the interactions they had with each other and with the children that they have. This went into depth of things and I loved the twists and turns. Overall, I loved the sequel and happy moments. I thought this was well written and put together. I highly recommend this novel for those who want a really lovely romance that has a lot of fluff and love.
Forevermore – Alex Grayson
Romance, novelette, fiction.
Molly is on the playground where bullies come up to try to bully her. A boy her same age interferes and scares the bullies away. He turns around and introduces himself as Lincoln. At that time, they became friends. As they grew up, they became best friends. Eventually that best friendship would become a relationship and the future is unknown for them.
I was skeptical about this book because it was a novelette. This book took me by surprise with a bunch of emotions. This may be short, but the characters and plot are so much more. My heart melted and my eyes teared up at most parts of this book. The author really perfected the trope of friends to lovers romance within the limitations of a novelette. I do wish this was longer because I want to see what happens next for these two characters. The hunt for the sequel if there is one is totally on. I needed this wholesome romance, and I am so glad I got this novelette. I highly suggest this because this can be read in one sitting for sure. There was hardly any smut but as someone who wants more romance without the smut, this would be perfect too. I will reread this so many times soon. I think there might be a second book but I haven’t been able to easily find the work.

I was anticipating reading this novel for the longest of time and had a hard time obtaining a copy. I am glad to have purchased this novel because it was worth reading. There was a lot of thrill and mystery with the whole concept of silenced wife who killed her husband then finding out the incident that truly happened was a shock twist ending. I had not expected the ending and I really enjoyed this novel. I wished it were longer, but this was just as perfect amount. Beautifully written and excellently paced.
