Finally someone writes the second story!

First of all I loved this book. The narrator does a great job with giving each character their own persona. The story line is great and is a wonderful balance between sweet romance and steamy passion! I was so happy that there was a second book to The Christmas Cottage. I loved the story but after every romance novel you wonder what happens next. I love that it tells the story of not only what happens with Lacey and Ian but gives you another steamy romance that involves Ava and her new man. The Christmas Cottage was the first Samantha Chase book I have read and now after reading the sequel Ever After I am excited to read more books by her!

Annoying characters

The main girl Ava is so frustrating and annoying. The story is so-so and a little cliche. I usually enjoy this author but I struggled to finish this book. However, the narration was great.

Main Character very unlikeable.

Could not relate to the main character. She was so self centered and immature. Also the narrator wasn’t right for this story.

Terrible main character

Ugh. People weren't kidding when they said the main character was horrid. Annoying is an understatement.
