Just finished reading “Happily Ever After” by Kelly Oram. It’s the sequel to “Cinder & Ella”, which was one of, if not, my favorite books last year. HEA did NOT disappoint.
Below is my Goodreads review. I’m not great at reviews. I don’t like giving spoilers, and I’m not exactly sure what to say, so most of the time I simply say how many stars I gave it and “Yeah, I like it” Or “Loved it”, or something like that. I’m going to try and post reviews with a little more depth to them. But, as always, books that rank 2 stars or below, I won’t rate or review. I just don’t want to talk badly about books. If I don’t like it fine, there’s a lot of people out there that probably do like a book I don’t like. And vice-versa.
Anyways, yeah, Happily Ever After? GREAT!
I love, love, LOVE, “Happily Ever After”. I can’t say it’s better than the first one, but I think’s very close. Like, VERY CLOSE.
I didn’t feel like this one was as funny or had the same witty banter as the first, but I felt it definitely held much more emotional struggle in it. Picking up just one week after “Cinder & Ella” was a pleasant surprise for me, as I assumed this book would pick up months or even a year later. Glad I was wrong about that, because it made everything about their relationship still seem so fresh because, well, it was.
More steamy moments in HEA than in C&E, but nothing that crosses the line, IMO. It felt like a natural progression. I’ve seen some reviews criticism the book for this, but I discovered Oram with the Jamie Baker Series and the Supernaturals series, so I’m not sure how her other books are. This one was another great read for me!
I’m secretly hoping for a Scotty spin-off, but who knows. Either way, I’ll be reading her next book. Plus I still have her back catalog to go through!
