God ABSOLUTELY HATE what happened to the characters in this book.. yeah life is unfair but to respond the way they did. I honestly feel sick to my stomach. I could hardly read the rest of the book.. probably won't bother reading the next one. These characters were nothing to me but selfish. Yes they were both struggling to deal with everything that had been handed to them but the fact that "she may not wake up" was no excuse.

It's taken me a few days to write this review, mainly because I'm still in shock. If I thought the first book was emotional, it was nothing compared to this one. This book had me all over the place. I'm still not sure exactly how I feel about it. I spent half the time sad and sympathetic, while the other half of the time I was downright furious.

I don't think I can say too much without spoiling this one. I'll just say that the story definitely went in a new direction. It made me question a lot of

who thought this was a good idea?

truly the most abhorrent book i've ever read.
why? because H cheats on h (while h is in a coma btw) WITH her twin sister because apparently he's so weak and needs a fill-in for his wife.

this is just filled with H and OW sex scenes where it's inferred that they both have great sex (since they're coming so hard all the damn time) and probably have the best sex of their life, H telling us that OW is way more attractive and fit compared to the h and actually wa

3ish stars...


I had such a hard time reading this book. It was so difficult for me to finish. I’m glad I did, but then again... I don’t know how I feel about how it ended. I cried, I drank, I bit off all my fingernails and I’ve come to this conclusion. I need the third book. I need to know how it all turns out. I think that’s the only way I will be able to feel better about this book. Because it seriously stressed me out.

*If you haven’t read Forever & Always, there will be many spoilers in this
Turn back now before reading and save yourself the heartache.

& Jasinda it's very obvious that you don't have a sister because that wouldn't have even crossed your mind if you knew that kind of connection.

Caden: Shoot on sight!
Eden: Shoot on sight!
Ever: Immediate rescure!

I don't know what to say about this. I loved forever and always. It was a 5 star read for me.I loved Cade and Ever.
i hated the turn this book took. The characters were selfish and after a particular scene i almost dnf'ed but my ocd got in between and i skimmed through 50% of the book. I guess it wasn't for me.
i love Jasinda's writing and i will be reading her other books but i will not be continuing with this series.

This needs to come with a WARNING-BEWARE! emotional and possible nausea.
Why don't you rip my heart out- stomp on it- and try to put it back in. Wilder's books are a hard read for me. More times than not, I am emotional during them. After the tree/lightening scene in Falling, ugly crocodile tears, curled into a fetal position, rocking on the floor-I try to stay clear. But, I read the beautiful letter that Caden left for Ever and thought- a beautiful love story. UM NO. NOT. Gut wrenching, lies, d
Spoilers ahead and a huge rant:
I hated this book and every one in it. Only Ever could save this book and she was only in it at the end. Cade and Eden are fucking assholes. They deserve each other. How??? I mean howwww could you??? Did you not think of what would happen when she woke up? How her heart would be torn in two, her soul shattered? The two most important people in the world to her betrayed her in the worst way imaginable. OMG, WTF!!!!! I can't believe the author did this, why would yo

Disgusting story I think one of the most repulsive storyline I have read in a long time! Caden and Eden the sister should be shot if they truly loved Ever they could not have betrayed her in such a nasty way and the sex scenes actually made my stomache churn I honestly cannot think of anyway they can redeem themselves in the next book especially with Eden now being pregnant! Really wish I did not read this book that's how much I hated Caden and Eden! With a husband and sister like that you reall ...more

I'll be honest, if I had known the direction the second book was going to take, I would not have read the first. After being so madly in love I was so disappointed in Caden. My heart broke for him, I could see how he was feeling but why oh why............Why? And Ever's sister Eden, not much of a sister. How can a third book wrap this up happily? ...more

Can you hear that? Its the worst sound in the world. That is the sound of my heart shattered and my soul begging to be reattached to my body. It's the sound of words on paper bring a grown women to her knees. That is the sound of my 9 year old asking me if I'm ok and why am I so sad. That's the sound of my husband asking me

"why are you continuing to read that if all it does it make you cry"

He doesn't understand that you can't just stop reading a book like this. I literall

Please note: I've now changed my casting for Ever, due to the changes of direction in this story.

I have always been a fan of Jasinda Wilder and couldn't wait to read "Forever and Always." I was especially pleased that I did not have to wait for the second book in the series. I was so disappointed. Needless to say "After Forever" disturbed me from the beginning. After reading the first installment and Caden being so in love with Ever something was very wrong with Caden and Eden. I found the whole premise of the book disturbing. I do not think that Caden and Eden could be redeemed for me in a ...more
This was an uncomfortable story to read it's almost like I didn't enjoy it, especially after the beautiful journey Ever and Cade went through in book 1. Although the subject matter was incredibly painful, I could somewhat understand the grief that Caden was going through and his conflicting emotions.

I really didn't like Eden though, I didn't trust her and I felt like she was manipulating Cade.

I don't rate books low because the story didn't go my way so I'm giving it 5 stars for being well writt

Right before I decided to read this book, I took a peek at the reviews here.... I was shocked by all of the low ratings and the fact that a lot of the reviews started with "WTF." I just couldn't understand it... then I read the book.

Now I am the one saying "WTF did I just read?" Why build up this amazing love story between two people only to have some manipulative sister tear it all down in the second book?

I thought my family was dysfunctional, and then I met Eden! Arrrgh!

1 Star!

I just can't even with this book.
*Spoilers Below*

I hate that this book wasn't everything I was hoping for.
The first book was great. I really, really enjoyed reading and falling for Ever and Cade. However, the author took a very horrible turn in the wrong direction in this book. Honestly, I'm walking away just disgusted by the things that happened in this book. I can not in anyway shape or form condone what Cade and Eden did in this book.

Well, let me take that back, I understand to an E

I'll be honest, I was scared to start this one. I thought that I would sob throughout the whole thing, but it was not that bad at all!!

This book picks up where Forever & Always left off and Ever is in a coma. I felt so bad for Caden! I cannot imagine what it would be like in his shoes, having to depend on people who were your family for only a short period of time. He couldn't say no to Eden's help because he didn't have anyone else to help him. They spend a lot of time together going to visit

HOLY SHIT!!!. Thank God for reviews that spoiled me on what was about to happen in this book. I kind of had a feeling after reading a few pages, so I had to know if my instincts were correct. Argh! I hate being right! The first book blew me away!! I don't think I can stomach continuing this one :( Since the series is called "Ever Trilogy" I hope there will be redemption to Caden on the third book and Ever will have it in her forgive him for what he did with (view spoiler) ...more

Damn! How do I rate this book?

Honestly, I started this with my eyes wide open. I already know what's going to happen. Or so I thought. But there were nuances to the story that surprised me...and definitely angered me.

So I'm having a hard time rating this because despite its main theme, I really enjoyed the writing. But...argh!

Honestly, I only read the spoilers...and I don't think my stomach could stand it.
I hate cheating, mostly when a husband cheated on his sick wife with his sister in law...this is the lowest moral ever.
I'm not a moral police...but my own morality banned me to read this one.
Thanks to all spoilers I have.
This is went to trash can, forever.
Im so angry right now and sick to my stomach as I write this review.

I fell in love with the story of Caden and Ever and they were so cute and beautiful I was certain they were going to make it even through the ugly curveball they were thrown into at the end of the book.

After Forever started out bittersweet at first. Caden has to deal with the aftermath of the accident and I hate how he did it. It tore my heart in pieces to read the heartbreak he went through but nothing ever will justify what

I think there was so much potential and this just went where i really didnt want it to go...a 5 star because im still gripped to the story and need to know what happens next.. a five star because it got me crying, it made me angry it evoked emotions!! however a 3.5 star because i just didnt like where it went...great ...more
So many readers have given this book a 1 star rating and I totally get why. I think if I hadn't read their reviews, including the spoilers, then I would have probably given this book the same rating. I am really glad that I read those spoilers before starting this book as I think I was prepared, I knew what was coming, I didn't like it but knowing it was going to happen I think helped.

I am giving this 5 stars because I love Jasinda's writing and I could feel Cade's grief. Jasinda sure knows how

Reading reviews for this book I felt exactly like I feel when I see a cockroach. Repulsed, disgusted,terrified. Some people say they rate a book based on the feelings it evokes from you. Strong feelings like hatred , anxiety, anguish, sadness, madness. Also happiness, joy, lightness, fulfillment. I don't welcome every feeling, the first list, the dark ones. Imo, these are the easiest to get from you nowadays. Just wa

Major spoilers :)

This is one of the nastiest books I have read and I apologize for my rudeness but this is me being tame.

1. Ever is in a coma, there's a 50/50 chance she wakes up.
2. TWO days after Ever is in a coma, Eden (Ever's twin sister) and Cade start having sexual thoughts about each other.
3. They start having sex, everywhere and justifying it. I was disgusted, repulsed and cringed at EVERY detailed scene.
4. They have sex on Ever and Cade's bed
5. They have unprotected sex
6. Cade begins

How would you deal if your reason for living was, well not really "living"?
This book carries right on from book one, which I loved and felt everything by the way...
Ever is, well just is....
Cade's grief has him so confused, and messed up he doesn't know whether he is coming or going, he has had to deal with so much tragedy in his life(book one) and now healing from a major accident that has caused all this grief, all he has left really is Eden, Ever's twin sister, and his elderly grandparents.
