Thank you Jessica Ingro for giving me the opportunity to ARC this sequel to Love Square which I really really enjoyed!

I found this book to be very well written and almost as exciting as it's predicessor.

Jessica Ingro has a way of suddenly throwing things into a story that's not expected. A few things in this story definitely took me off guard.

Unfortunately, my wishes for this book wasn't where the author went with this story. That doesn't mean it wasn't a good story, just not what I had invisi

This is how I felt after finishing Love Square

I just needed to know...

➤ Is there going to be a HEA for Jacob?
➤ Will the truth come out?

I won't spoil you and tell you, who's the lucky one he finally ended up with. But in my opion the author has managed to tie up all the loose ends very nicely!

His Ever After is written mostly in Jacob's POV, which I really liked. And just like the previous book, I couldn't put it down.

Well done,

As the song goes, for Jacob Matthews love has been a battlefield. He has not had it easy when it comes to claiming the woman he loves. His Ever After picks up right where Love Squared left off. Believed to have loss Sam to her husband, Aiden, his love for her still consumes his soul. Taken over by grief, Jacob is a shell of the man we are introduced in most of Love Squared.

I don't know of any other way to review this book properly without revealing some spoilers. Read at your own risk. I do recommend reading the first book, Love Square, first. This book is not a stand-alone.

After the whirlwind love affair between Jacob and Sam ended in Love Square, I had been looking forward to seeing Jacob finally get his well-deserved happily ever after. The affair between Sam and Jacob was one full of cheating, lies, and heartache. Jacob lost the woman he thought was the love

Holy Shiznit!!! This was yet ANOTHER rollercoaster of feeling! For those of you who have read Love Square, you'll get where i'm coming from!

Let me start off by saying i'm not a fan of cheating or cheaters, so I was so surprised when I was drawn in deep into the first book of this series. After i'd finished, there was no question I wanted to read more from Jessica Ingro - who is truly talented.

Jacob... Is it just me or do you all want a spanking from this man??!

Mistakes made in life can ruin your soul. They certainly have for Jacob and they aren't done taking their toll quite yet. He's lost the love of his life through a manipulative game played by players much more qualified than himself. In return, he gained a first class ticket to the island of relationship hell. And booking a return flight home to sanity is falling farther and farther out of reach.

I was not a huge fan of Sam in book one but she is like Cinder-fucking-ella when compared to Brook

I want to first thank the author for giving me the opportunity to read and review this book.

At the end of Love Square, a shocking secret was revealed. So of course, I could not wait to get my hands on His Ever After. I started reading this book thinking that I knew where Jessica was going to take this story; I am happy to say I was wrong.

His Ever After starts off around the same time where Love Square ended. Jacob has lost the woman he loves and is only left with the memories of their time toget

His Ever After took me a bit by surprise. There were some things I was expecting, but there was a whole new element to Jacobs story that I enjoyed. Then there was the heat. Oh boy, was there heat!

I'll admit that I wasn't a huge Jacob fan in the first book. However, I was open to the possibility that he may redeem himself. And in His Ever After, he did. I enjoyed getting to know him a bit better. It helped me understand why he made the decisions he had in the past, but we also see a whole new sid

I have to start off by saying that after reading Love Square I couldn’t wait to hear from Jacob in His Ever After. Not wanting to give anything away because YOU have got to read this book for yourself, here is my take on HEA:

I wasn’t expecting the ride that HEA took me on, but it definitely was a ride worth taking. I was with Jacob for his highs and his lows, I wanted to scream at him (Jessica too at some point), I wanted to throw my Kindle, I wanted to smack Jacob and I just wanted t

This is NOT a typical sweet and nicely laid out fairy-tale romance story this is real life and it came, it saw and it kicked a happy ending’s ass!
OK, so I loved Love Square and was ‘Team Jacob’ from the start. I loved his strength and his emotion. The passion that pours from him, Jake loves and he loves hard and it really never was easy for him. After an affair with a very married Sam, he is shattered when she goes back to her husband, Aiden, and is with Brooke. Jacob is unbelievably unhappy, an

Ms. Ingro decided Jacob deserved his own story and I have to admit that was an awesome choice. His Ever After is one intense ride much like Love Square. I went through a wave of emotions while reading. It was quite surprising that I absolutely, hands down loved reading this that the main emotion I felt was irritation and disgust.

The disgust was mainly for Jacob. He is forever and ever amen a complete utter douche. I'm not even sure if I can express all the different ways I find him douchey witho

“If only I could tell her that our “love square” wasn’t actually a square at all. If only I could tell her that I love her with an intensity that is destroying me inside.”

This is the second book in the Love Square series.

Oh wow. So many questions were answered in this sequel. In the first book I really thought that Jacob is really just a ladies man and wasn't really in love with Sam considering how things badly things ended with them. I believed he would move on just easily and find another one

I could not put this book down. I had been anxiously awaiting its release and let me tell you it did not meet my expectations; it surpassed it. Jessica Ingro nailed it with His Ever After. She knows how to pull your emotions and make you fall in love with characters you shouldn’t love, and make you want to read more and more about their story.

"...when you find true love, it will make everything worth it in the end. All the struggles and all the hard times won't drag you under, because you'll have each other. "

When I first read Love Square I didn't expect to fall for Jacob's character like I did. He was the other man perusing a married woman and I wanted to think that was wrong but I fell for Jacob, hard. He was sexy, sweet, passionate, and walking sex on a stick. It was hard not

And "blew me away" doesn't even begin to describe what it did to me. Jessica caused my heart to do many different things throughout this read: race, skip, drop, jump, sulk, and fly to name a few.

His Ever After is the story of Jacob Matthews.

Jacob is steamy hot, passionate, heartbroken cop.

A year ago the love of his life, the only one he stole his heart, walked back into his life. He let her go when they were teenagers, but now that she is back he wants her back.

The circumstances and all in between, didn´t make that happen.

He was a broken mess.

Brooke was there next to him to help him pick up the pieces.

Brooke is still bitch. We discover a lot of her secrets and reasons of her actions.

I was introduced to Jessica and Love Square by some my blogger friends, and boy am I glad they talked about Jacob constantly! After the way Love Square ended, I really wanted to find out what was next for Jacob. Would he and Sam find their way back to each other after what Aiden did? Would he and Brooke end up being together for good? There were so many things left unanswered!

His Ever After starts off with a bang, and never stops moving! Jessica has an amazing way of drawing you into the world s

Warning: Minor Spoilers.

I didn't finish book 1. Cheating themed romances is not my cup of tea especially if one of the party involved was married. It pissed me off. But, I still convinced myself to give His Ever After a try since I loved Jacob and still want to see him happy and get his ever after.

I'm not a fan of Sam. I disliked her. She's the reason why I didn't finish the first book. And whatever happened to her was her own fault. And I hated that she got her ever after first. It's

Do you ever think about your ever after?

Jacob has obsessed with his for the better part of his life but he was projecting it on the wrong person. In Ms. Ingro's first book Love Square we get to read about the hot and toxic relationship between Sam and Jacob through Sam's point of view. They both have the idea of projecting their happiness based on another person instead of themselves. This need drives them both to do regrettable t

While I was working my ass off to give her the life she deserves, you were weaseling your way into her pants. Don’t you see how fucked up that is? To knowingly steal another man’s wife?” --Aiden Parker
