    One thought on “Everly After”

    1. This is one of those books that messes with your head and shows you how twisted human psyche is.What we have in this novel is a disaster waiting to happen. Two unbalanced individuals – one on the path of self destruction and the other seeking peace- coming together in what might be the relationship that finally destroys both of them.To be honest, I don’t really know why I picked this book for review. I think it was the fact that the synopsis hints at a man who’s been in the army and now de [...]

    2. Read my review atSinfully Sexy.4.5 STARSEverly After is a smart, heartbreaking character driven story about a broken girl and a broken boy who never wanted to like each other in the first place. I WAS NOT EXPECTING THIS!!! I love it when a totally amazing book comes out of nowhere. To say I’m impressed in an understatement. I LOVED IT TO PIECES!!! I cannot believe this is a debut offering. Everly After hooked me from chapter one. The writing is wonderfully rich and intelligent. The story has a [...]

    3. Everly After by Rebecca Paula is absolutely brilliant. I LOVED this book! It really struck a chord with me, and most of it had to do with how it was written. The writing is gorgeous, Ms. Paula is insanely talented, and her words are mesmerizing. This is evidenced by the amount of highlighting present in my Kindle. I typically don’t highlight as I read, I like to ingest the story as it unfolds without interrupting, but so many parts of this book begged to be remembered!“All truths burn bright [...]

    4. *4 stars!*"Sometimes there's good in what scares us."Everly After isn't what I'd classify as your typical new adult contemporary read. It had quite a dark and depressing tone during many parts of the book. Mainly because of the heroine, Everly. She's settled into a life that she doesn't find meaningful. She's very much struggling to find a purpose, and it made me sad to see her take one step forward only to go back five. She made a lot of poor decisions which made her a hard character for me to [...]

    5. This was okay. The story is great in the sense that it's not the bad boy & good girl story, but good guy & bad girl dynamics instead. Sort of. Every is such a broken character and it was really hard to root for her at times due to the brokeness, because it made her do things that just didn't make any sense. I liked Beckett for the most part, but him calling Everly a pet as a endearment? Omg lol. The first time I read the word pet I think I blinked rapidly at least 5 times while thinking [...]

    6. When I first started this book I found it a little off putting. I don't mind reading damaged characters, but I was having a hard time relating to Everly and Beckett. However, as I continued reading, my heart grew and my understanding did as well and I ended up loving this one. It was full of heartbreak, loss, guilt, grief and longing. But the one thing that was the biggest shining point was love. Everly is a young woman who is ultimately lost. After a not so good last few years, and some very un [...]

    7. Title: Everly AfterSeries: -Author: Rebecca PaulaRelease Date: November 2014Rating: 4 starsCliffhanger: NoHEA: (view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]3.5 - let's round it up to 4 - "pet" stars*Everly**Beckett*Everly After must be one of the most depressing books I've read in the past year. A very well-written one, but still very depressing.Did I enjoy reading it? Honestly I don't know, but what i do know is that i felt compelled to keep reading it. So, i finished the whole book in one sitting (yep, i [...]

    8. I was fortunate enough to read and critique an early version of this before release. Paula's debut is a gritty punch to the gut and a bold look into the lives of two very flawed - and very real - characters. Everly and Beckett struggle with issues that will resonate with readers, and Paula is unflinching in her portrayal of their pain, fears, and blossoming new love. A brave book that proves Paula will be a rising star in the new adult genre.

    9. First of all, I want to say out loud that I was not prepared for this book in any way. It made me late for work, it made me want to extend my lunch hour, and it made me want to stay home on a Friday night and finish it.Everly After is the epitome of two broken souls finding their way to each other and navigating life together. Their lives are better when they are together. Apart, they are both a mess.“”Are you going to kiss me? ‘ He tilts his head closer, his voice warm against my cheek. [...]

    10. Gossip Girl meets Nicholas Sparks novel in a perfect combo is what comes to mind when I think of Everly After. So to say the least I freaking loved it!!! Everly After has this completely unique and addicting feel to it that will have you flipping through the pages like a madman. But first let me explain why I combo’ed Gossip Girl and Nicholas Sparks and why that mix reminds me of Everly After.From the start of this novel we are introduced to Everly, a Manhattan socialite princess, party girl, [...]

    11. *I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review*I have to say, going into this i judged the book by its cover expecting a lovey dovey hearts and flowers romance in Paris. It's better! It's dark, it's gritty and it's heartbreaking.'We’re like dominoes, Beckett and I. I’ve tipped us forward until everything is set in motion. I can’t stop us from colliding, so I should enjoy the fall while it lasts.'This sentence about sums up the majority of this book. It's a train wreck. A [...]

    12. I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.This was the story of Everly and Beckett, two broken people, trying to find a little happiness in the world. This story was enjoyable enough, especially if you are new to the NA genre. If you’ve read a bunch of these type books, you might (like me) find many of them to basically be on repeat, though.The book was well written, but seemed to drag in places to me. This may be the result of my lack of connection to Everly, though. I [...]

    13. guninactone.wordpress/2014I’m going to start you off with the messages I sent to my friend Christina while reading this book:Holy shit this book is intense.This is so much more than I expected!I don’t even know what to say. I’m totally on edge and am going to have to finish tonight.And if I read this book for Beckett to die ** ***** I am going to be supremely pissed!I even tweeted at Rebecca Paula that she had better not break my heart!So now almost a week later-my heart is recovered from [...]

    14. 4 Stars!I liked this book. It was a different change of pace to the contemporary romance and was written in a brilliant fashion. This was a great story about learning to move on from your past and embracing a bright future. This book has many ups and downs, taking you on an emotional ride that will have you tearing up and smiling at the end (and possibly do a fist pump or two!).This is Everly and Beckett's story. Everly is a spoiled heiress who is a serious hot mess and living a reckless life. C [...]

    15. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. This was an interesting read with complex characters. Tragic lifestyles that twist their worlds upside down was emotionally turbulent for me as the reader. The start was brilliantly orchestrated giving me the false impression of Everly being less unbalanced but quickly morphed into light showing the troubled individual she really was and the struggles she tried to fight. My feelings for Beckett's character was confusing at times. Liking him [...]

    16. Finally! A book that isn't I love you on the first day. A romance that seems real and develops nicely with the read. Truth be told I really enjoyed this read. The writing was beautiful. I'm not one of those readers who likes a lot of description. Lets get to the plot and the action. Paula wrote in a way that the descriptions didn't bog the story down, but instead added a beauty. I loved the characters too. Like I said earlier, this book develops nicely, as do the characters. There is also a bit [...]

    17. I don't know where to begin, this book was well written, painful heartbreaking I wanted Everly to find her way so much, I wanted Beckett to be the game changerI was looking for the fight to live. This book is full of angst and sorrow. Sometimes life is harder to crawl out of bad situationsBut it is refreshing to read a book that is not all flowers and roses. part is watching these two broken people fight their way to the top!Great debut novel;)

    18. I AM NUMB AND HAPPY AND A MESS BECAUSE OFEVERLY AFTER. Review link: EVERLY AFTER hopelessbooklovers.wordpress.c

    19. DNF. 39 pages.This is the first book in my life that I've never finished reading. I don't know, I just couldn't get into it and the characters annoyed me.

    20. Everly After, Rebecca PaulaReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsSo, when I looked at this book it had some mixed reviews, seems some loved it and others hated it – but I was intrigued by the description and decided to see for myself. I’m in the “loved it” category though I’m unsure if I’d re read it. At first it’s easy to just see Everly as this “poor little rich girl” in a sarky way, when we think with all that money she can’t possibly have problems. However though lack of [...]

    21. I was kindly provided with a copy of Everly After to read and review.Drawn in to this by the captivating synopsis I couldn't wait to get started on this book thinking I was going for quite a typical romance with two broken damaged souls who struggle to hold themselves and each other together and the inevitable happily ever after. I became stunned pretty quickly when I realised just how different it was from what I was anticipating it to be. It came across more as a descriptive book about the fra [...]

    22. Review Originally Posted at: Book FreakPURCHASE IT ►►► They were a train wreck waiting to happen. Separately, their baggage is already overloaded and to include another person with the same amount of baggage of more is a little bit crazy. To say that they are complicated, most especially Everly would be a complete understatement. It took some time to understand her, to warm up to her – she was spiraling down, and you are there watching her ruining her life for reasons unknown to you and [...]

    23. I received a free copy of this book.'Everly After' is the story of Everly and Beckett. Both have gone through a lot in their past and eventually lost themselves. When they first meet each other in Paris both try to run from everything that hurts and just want to hide. Slowly, they learn that hiding can't be the answer to their problems. They fall in love and play a dangerous games because falling head over heels into a new relationship won't help them either. I had a difficult time to sum up wha [...]

    24. Everly After isn't a bad book and it also stays away from many New Adult tropes, but still, while I enjoyed it, there was something that held me back from really liking it or respecting Rebecca Paula as an author. I picked up this book partially because I had hoped that Beckett's serious professional job as a journalist would make him less like the brooding, trouble NA leading men that drive me up the wall. And while Beckett is definitely battling demons from his childhood and his time in Afghan [...]

    25. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for a review. This novel was not what I was expecting. I expected a light contemporary romance. What I got was something darker and sadder than I'd been prepared for. In truth, I think the romance aspect took a backseat to a story of a man and women dealing with different mental illnesses and how those illnesses came into play during their relationship. The writing was really good, and the word that springs to mind is "sensual." The author uses every [...]

    26. bookworm221.tumblrThank you so much to Rebecca Paula and the New Adult Book Club for kindly providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.I have to admit to some mixed feelings about this book, I would like to emphasize that I liked it and that I found the subject matter very compelling and very well written, the only problem I had was with the way it was edited, sometimes there wasn't a clear way of saying that the characters were not in the same place, or who they were [...]

    27. I'm just going to sit here and cry because Rebecca can actually do no wrong.I started this book a bit on the fence because Between Everything & Us is my favourite book ever, I have never read a more wonderful and spectacular book in my life, so I was a bit scared Everly After wouldn't be as good but I'm immensely happy now that I've finished it because I was wrong, Everly After is just as wonderful.I won't lie to you, this was definitely a hard book to read, Everly and Beckett are two broken [...]

    28. See more of my reviews on my blog Thoughts At One In The Morning.My Thoughts:When I first started reading this, I was a little wary. It's difficult for me to get into a story if the main character is a little hard to like. But as I kept reading, seeing events unfold, seeing Everly exposed, I was drawn into the story. I wanted to see where everything was leading.Beckett and Everly were a perfect pairing. He could see beyond the outer shell, into the person Everly truly was. I really liked that. O [...]

    29. *Book kindly provided by publisher in exchange for an honest review*4/5 Stars!Everly After definitely did not play out like I was expecting. When I initially started reading this, I expected something light and fluffy and that is not what I got! It was deep and gritty and emotional and overall amazing.Everly infuriated me at times, but by the end she redeemed herself! She started out as a complete HOT MESS, and as the book progresses she does too. You see her develop as a character and it’s a [...]
