Publisher's Summary

Fans of Twilight are listening to this! 

Her dreams weren't dreams. They were memories. 

In order to fully inherit a millionaire's fortune, Allie Knowles must survive a month on her property - easier said than done when the enormous house is haunted by a violent ghost who claims to know Allie. But the true mystery lies with Cole Kinsley, the handsome groundskeeper. 

Cole and Allie have never met, though he's been driving her wild in her dreams for years. Yet now, every effort to get closer to him pushes him further away. 

Cole has only ever loved one soul, and that love has endured for centuries. Now, that soul rests within Allie's body, and it takes everything in his power not to confess the truth. For her presence has put them both in mortal danger. 

Racing against the clock, Allie will have to break the ghost's curse - or history will be doomed to repeat itself.

Fantastic Blend of Genres

When I first saw this book, the cover mixed with the title, I had the impression that it was a fairytale like book. The summary was intriguing so I requested a copy. I was not let down. This was a fantastic urban fantasy that started off so regular and went crazy very quickly. It has everything to make for a great story: romance, suspense, intrigue, action, and mystery.

Allie has dreams of a strange woman, a woman warning her away from something of hers, but Allie chooses to ignore them until one day, she inherits a stranger’s fortune. The catch? She must live on the property for 2 weeks to claim the inheritance or else it goes to charity. The bigger catch? The boy from her dreams is there.

Mixed with the smooth narration of Shaina Summerville, this was all around a great read/listen. Definitely check this one out if you like…well…any genre really!

This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.

Not Sure How to Take this Story

I purchased this Audible book & listened to it on Audible.
Ghosts, Star Crossed Lovers, A Stubborn Girl, a Large Inheritance. This story was difficult to get through, it keep going Around and Around the problems and Not getting Answers. MC mood swings are very annoying and so are the Secret held from her. Interesting enough to go to the next book in Series and hopefully Story quotes going in Circles.

A good story to listen

This book has a similiar plot to Fallen (the movie, i haven't read the book yet). I love the storyline, but I was rooting for more of a romance side rather than their cursed story

The narrator is good, but she's lacking in some parts of each chapter.

Intriguing

I was captivated from the beginning to the end. I kept getting annoyed when someone tried to talk to me while I was listening. Lol... the author just captivated me with the world she created and to me I felt I was sucked right in. Very mysterious, chemistry, haunted house and land. Narrator did a great job bringing the characters to life and perfect pace performance. Definitely a must get.

Great story!

This was a great story. I loved the characters in this book. The story line is interesting and different. The ending had a twist I didn't see coming from a mile away. The narrator does a wonderful job telling the story. I look forward to more books from this author.

Interesting story

This was an interesting story. An interesting romance, some mystery, an inheritance from an unknown woman all tied together to make a great story. I would listen to other books by this author.

The narration is excellent.

Delghtfully paranormal!

A little romancy but done in taste.Allie comes into an inheritance from someone she's never met. The mansion is all hers if she spends 30 days in it. In that time there is small host of colorful characters including Cole, a dark brooding man. She feels an instant connection to him but his prickly attitude pushes her away. The obvious part was the relationship between them but I really enjoyed how the author developed it.

I was hung on every word which the author so colorfully wrote. The scenes were vivid and the story was filled with its share of suspense and intrigue.

Loved it!

This is the first book in the Cursed Series. This a great paranormal, new adult, and urban fantasy romance. I love Odessa Black's writing. I love the characters, and the scenery. My favorites are Cole and Allie. The storyline is complex, intriguing, fast-paced, and filled with mystery, and suspense. Now, I can't wait for the next book in the Series! The narration is great! Shaina Summerville has a great, soft, and beautiful voice, that fits the characters and the story. All the character were easy to distinguish.

I really enjoyed this storyline. There was lots of twists and turns that kept me hooked throughout this audiobook. The storyline had a lot going on and lots of complex characters. The book is written very well and a fantastic performance from the narrator.

A good story

This was a good haunted house mystery. There were lots of strange events happening and the inhabitants of the house were quite odd. It was all very mysterious and I was as clueless as the main character until later in the book when the secrets were revealed. I loved all the suspense especially towards the end of the book.

Ever After

Cole and Allie have sparks for the beginning yet he's so rude to her. (Honestly at first I'm not sure why she does not fire him, unless it because of his uncle). And boy does this home have some secrets. Cole actually knows them but Allie does not, except that he is the man in her dreams. This is one of those books you want to shake the characters and just say spill it! I really liked the staff especially the 2 ladies hired to help her out. Did I miss who hired them, certainly the sister didn't, perhaps the butler, but I thought they said the deceased lady that left her the house? I did get confused over a few aspects of the story. Like was the lady that owned the house the sister reincarnated? And in the beginning I don't remember a scene where the family finds out that the house is not left to them. So does that not make them related? Book 2 could turn out very interesting. The narration was spot on and made this a fun and easy listen.

Worth the listen!

Wow! Ever After took me by surprise, I did not expect to like this story as much as I did. Odessa Gillespie Black is a talented author she drew me in with her words and extraordinary imagination. I loved the premise, and the storyline is brilliantly composed, a perfect blend of mystery, paranormal, suspense, and gothic. The characters are well-developed, multifaceted, intriguing, and thoroughly captivating.

A stellar performance by Shaina Summerville, she captured the nuances of the characters, the emotions and intensity, literally bringing the story to life. Ever After is an excellent start to the Cursed Series, and I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
