Happy Wednesday dear reader friends! I’m so thrilled to share today’s book review of An Ever After Summer by Toni Shiloh today with you.
ABOUT THIS BOOK
Embrace the enchantment of summer with these contemporary twists on timeless tales.
A New Beginning — Who is she? Acacia Martin raised by an impostor mom serving a prison sentence for her sins, or Jasmine Callahan abducted at birth from a family she’s yet to meet? Luckily, she has Drake to help her untangle the mess that is her life. Will he ensnare her he art in the process?
An Ever After Summer — The employees of In a Bind are terrified of Jean-Luc Thibodeaux, so Bellamy Larson hops on a plane to France to deal with the beastly client. Yet once she arrives, she’s convinced he merely needs a friend. Then her heart begins to want ever after, not just one summer.
Gwen and the Three Dates — Life isn’t a romantic movie, but Gwen Lochs is determined to find her leading man. When she joins a cheesy dating site, Gwen agrees to just three dates. Can Ben Smith watch his best friend and soulmate find someone else? A romantic comedy about searching for that just-right love.
Unkissable — Reality diva Charlotte Lavigne’s on-camera meltdown reminds former teen-TV prince Jaime Reyes exactly why he left Hollywood ten years ago. A chance encounter leads to a bargain that transforms them both. When it’s time to face her past, will their rediscovered love be strong enough to build a future together?
I love reading An Ever After Summer, a contemporary retelling of The Beauty and Beast. Jean-Luc Thibodeaux hires Bellamy Larson’s father’s In a Bind company to renovate his late wife’s château’s library. Bellamy heads to France to meet the deadline. I like how Bellamy refuses to show pity to Jean-Luc who has scars on his face from a car accident that killed his wife but offers him friendship instead. She also pushes him out of his comfort zone and convinces him to stop hiding because of his scars but to go out in public and start living life again while they restore the château. In the process, Jean-Luc takes another look at his faith and makes a transformation.
