I was about to marry the man of my dreams.
We had it all; a life that most could only wish for. I felt like the luckiest woman in the world.
Then, in the blink of an eye, it was taken from me.
Now I can’t grasp how to move forward.
I don’t even think I want to.
Whether I’m dead or alive, my happily ever after is NEVER going to happen.
5 STARS!!!! Best Book of 2015 by FAR!!!!
I cannot even begin to stress how amazing this book is, Jennifer completely set the bar to an astronomical unattainable level and I can only hope that my review can do this book a fraction of the worthiness it is due. Let me first warn you to get your tissues ready and be prepared to sit down and completely devour this novel because there is no stopping point once you start I promise you are going to want to finish in one sitting.
“I feel like the luckiest man God sent you to me.”
This book starts with Bailey who has come to the realization that she will spend her life alone and one day become the crazy cat lady and surprisingly she’s accepted that as her fate. Enter her stubborn charismatic never take no for an answer best friend and she immediately will not let Bailey end up as an old maid, so Shawna keeps pushing for Bails to get on a dating website which to her utter horror ends both horribly and fabulous at the same time. After a dreaded failed attempt at meeting up with someone from the dating site she is on her way home and meets a handsome stranger on the curb after dropping her groceries and sparks ignite instantaneously. From that moment on she knows that he is the one.
“It’s not like me to worry, especially when it comes to us. Our relationship has always been effortless. I’ve never had to work hard to impress you. You love me for who I am. It’s reassuring.”
From that first meeting on the curb Bailey and Major become inseparable and build a life and love most people can only ever read and dream about. Major comes from a large Italian family who also adores Bailey and they all welcome her with open arms. Their relationship progresses as natural as it should and after two years together they decide they are ready to get married and start a family. As careful and meticulous as Bailey was about planning every detail of her and Major’s romantic Italian destination wedding and the life they would start soon after she could never in her wildest dreams planned for the sudden turn their lives were about to take.
“Well I never thought I could feel like a million bucks and a piece of shit at the same time.”
After Italy Bailey is forever changed by the events that took place there in more ways than one. She struggles every day to attempt to find herself again and it is breathtaking to read about how she redefines herself. Somewhere along the way when she wasn’t even looking for it there was help in the most unlikely place of all and she began to come back to herself piece by piece.
“I’m sacred Bails. I’m scared that I’m going to love the both of you and not get to stick around to be apart of your lives. If I would have known this would occur, I wouldn’t have wasted so much of my life.”
“I’m trying so hard to stop myself, but I can’t. Every second we’re together makes me want more. You keep me going I’ve never felt this way in my life.”
Happily Ever Never is a beautiful story of love and heartache and it just proves that if you watch long enough eventually a phoenix will rise from the ashes. The happiness and sorrow were fused so well together it felt like you went thru life with Bailey and experienced all these things with her. I highly recommend this book to anyone no matter what your genre preference you will enjoy this story.

It kept repeating in my head.
Major was gone forever.
His life was over.
We would never be married.
Having his children was out of the question.I was alone, dependent on myself once again and it petrified me. I wanted him back, and I didn’t care how wrong that sounded. How was I to go on when all that I loved had been ripped away?
