This is my first experience reading this author, and I am impressed!

I found the title and concept very intriguing and knew I wanted to read this the moment I saw it/read about it. The characters are endearing, but not without their flaws, so naturally I was hooked after a few pages.

A short way into the book I came across mention of someone in Evan's past, which implied a connection to what he was doing in the present. I'm not usually a fan of stories where characters are reincarnate

REVIEW
New to me author.

I found this paranormal - romantic book to be very comical in a lot of ways.
We have Evan aka Cupid. He draws on others love simply by touching them.
Do they know he is there? No

His next assignment comes in while he is at a wedding. Rebecca almost 25 living in Michigan.
So he is off to begin his work. Fi

Happily Evan After is absolutely delightful. Even is a Cupid, sent to help Becca to find her perfect match. He finds that Becca looks just like the woman he loved and lost long ago. In spite of Becca's perception of the ideal man being tall, handsome and with abs you could do washing on, Evan is much more my idea of the perfect man- sweet, kind and selfless. I couldn't help but cheer for him from the very beginning. Becca is a very relatable character, just trying to get by in this crazy world. ...more

Have you ever wondered if Cupid really exists?
Michelle Irwin puts a sweet and happy spin on the idea and delivers a romantic comedy that is easy to love. The story centers around Becca, a free spirit, hospital medical secretary, who’s passion is fueled by her love of photography. Although single and without a family, Becca lives in the moment and seems at peace with the direction of her life. Evan, destined to roam the earth as a cupid, is a s

Happily Evan After is a book that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside. It’s a light read, centred around a cupid named Evan who basically plays matchmaker with his “assignments,” having to find their perfect match before he can move on to the next.

But then there’s Becca, his newest and toughest assignment yet. Why can’t he figure her out? And why does he feel so attached to her?

Although I strongly disliked Drew (the guy Evan set Becca up with) for many reasons, and wanted to kick hi

An unusual sweet romantic read that gives a feel good factor. I particularly liked the fact that poor Evan's love rival is a classic 'catch' tall, good looking, athletic, great in bed, professionally and socially incredibly successful, but there's still something missing. Love scenes occur, but they are not graphic in the least.
I wouldn't have put it in the 'romantic comedy' genre, as it didn't make me laugh, but there were plenty of 'ah' cosy cuddly 'smile' moments, and as the title sugge

This was a great read showing the way real love should be. Happily Evan After was a sweet and comical romance that I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a smile. Evan is a sweet guy and I was rooting for him from the beginning. I'm looking forward to the second installment of the Fall For You series coming this May.

Great job Michelle on a great book!

This was the first book I have read by this author and I was on the fence about reading it. I really am glad I took that chance! This book was funny and sad almost at the same time. I fell in love with both Becca and Even almost from the start. They had such a warm and yet difficult at times relationship that had you rooting for them both. The plot was very well written and over all I will be checking out other books by this author.

Happily Evan After is my second book from Michelle Irwin and despite being another paranormal romance, it is completely different from the dark and serious Through the Fire.

Evan is a Cupid and after his own love life ends tragically, he’s sent back to earth by The Powers That Be to bring love and happiness to those who desire it. He has been promised h

This is such a cute, sweet, humorous romance story. Evan has been a cupid for over 50 years. He has been promised paradise if he accomplishes all the matches given to him. For Evan, paradise is spending eternity with Rose, his one true love.

Becca is 25, works as a medical receptionist at a hospital, is an amateur photographer, great friends, and believes she is happy with her life. The one thing missing is love and companionship.

Let me start by saying that I'm not usually a big fan of paranormal reads but after reading Michelle's first book; Through the Fire, I was totally hooked on her work and she quickly became one of my favourite authors. The only word I can use to describe Michelle's writing is captivating... the reader is drawn in from the very first page and each scene is set so perfectly, you almost feel as though you are watching from inside the story.

Happily Evan After is Michelle's third book, but

In the beginning we meet Evan, a reluctant cupid who exchanged his mortality for a life of servitude, a life of finding love for others without the possibility of ever feeling it again for himself...or so he assumes until he meets Becca. .
Evan is shocked to discover that his one true loves soul has been sent back down to earth and is encased in his newest charge Becca. Can he match her with another person? well i'm going to be forced to be elusive and make you read the book!

This gave a fresh look into what cupids maybe. In that sense it's very unique. At first I thought it was just another contemporary romance but turns out it got a touch of fantasy on it too.

The plot as a whole well written and the pace was very smooth. The conflicts was well incorporated too.

I like the characters. Evan's character was built up pretty well from the point of his past up to the years that went by in his life unto the present. Becca, on the other hand was quit

I absolutely loved this story! It's a new twist on Cupid that I found delightful and funny yet also sad at times.

Evan is your not so averade Cupid. His job is to find the perfect match for which ever name appears on his 'list'. He is sent to Becca but is stunned to discover that she looks exactly like his own true love Rose.

It turns out that Becca is the Great neice of Rose and that she has her soul. Evan finds himself drawn to Becca is a way he has never known and parts of him come

A fun and fanciful tale of undying love, and happy ever afters.

Fans of Michelle Irwin's Through the Fire might be surprised by this lighter take of love and life, but NOT disappointed.

Evan is a Cupid, he lost the love of his life 50 years ago to violence, and was given a second chance to prove himself. So, for decades he has been finding people the love of their life, and insuring happily ever afters.

When he arrives at his latest assignment, he discovers that Rose

**I was given a copy of this book for an honest review.**

Once I got rolling with these characters, I really enjoyed this book! Evan is a character of many layers and history, and was incredibly lovable. Becca seemed like someone I could relate to (which is always something that you want in the FMC as a female reader), and I found myself really rooting for her to find her one true love. My only disappointment was I wish that there was a bit more history we'd learned, but there was more than enou

I'm probably not Michelle Irwin's typical reader, in that I've read only two or three romances in my entire life. That being said, I was pleasantly surprised by Happily Evan After.

It is a charming, off-beat book that delves into the realm of paranormal. The premise of the book, Cupid Meets Reincarnated Love, is bright and inventive. I really appreciate the work that Irwin put into constructing her story. She reveals her world in careful steps, using clever dialogue and well-honed tra

Well, this was different!
Evan returns to the world as a cupid, after committing suicide after the death of his beloved Rose, fifty years ago. The powers that be in Evan's cupid universe, give him the assignment of finding a match for Becca, Rose's granddaughter and Rose's reincarnated soul.
This book was recommended to me, and I'm glad that I picked it up in a recent kindle deal. I enjoyed the writing style very much, and the story flowed beautifully.

Happily Evan After is a sweet, funny and well written second chance story.

Evan is a reluctant cupid who is charged with finding people their perfect match, even though at first he does not want to do so he eventually gives in and does what he is charged to do with the expectation of salvation.

Becca is Evans latest assignment and even though he is struck by her uncanny resemblance to his one true love Rose, he sets off to find her perfect match. He is not prepared for the emotions he

I love books where I become emotional invested in the characters. I wanted more than anything for Evan to get his happy ending!

This story is a heartwarming tale of a cupid who is forced to match his true love to an ideal partner; all the while lusting and loving her from a far.
Evan ended his life tragically; given the choice to spend eternity in purgatory or serve as a cupid to redeem himself him choosing redemption. He is sent to

THANK YOU Michelle for bringing us our reluctant Cupid & our lonely girl Becca, they show you that in LOVE you deserve someone whom loves you just for being you.

Happily Evan After is a sweet, quirky romance that leaves you with a smile. The author does a nice job of helping the reader understand the internal challenges that the two main characters face and makes you root for them both. Evan is a sweet, loving guy whose sensitivity is part of his job, but also imbued by tragic circumstances. Becca is his true love, reincarnated…and lonely. Watching these two come together was endearing with some funny moments along the way.

A brilliant modern take on an old myth... brings cupid into the 21st century. Evan definitely isnt what or who you think he is. I loved it so much I couldn't put it down. A few unexpected twists just made this more interesting.
Becca and her photography captured something amazing in both imagery and words on the page. You could picture everything so clearly. I loved the different elements incorporated into the story. I laughed and I think I even snorted a few times much to my kids amusement lol.

I was privileged to be a beta reader for Michelle Irwin for her soon to be published “Happily Evan After” so this is a pre-release review so I won’t go into any spoilers at this point. However if you are into Romantic Comedies then this book is a must read, follow Evan though his adventures.

Just when you thought Cupid was a infant archer wearing nothing but a loincloth...in walks Evan. For fifty years, he's been making matches - putting people together and watching the sparks fly. Truly Hell on Earth for a man who committed suicide because he couldn't bear the guilt wrapped around his broken heart.

And then he gets assigned his lost love's modern-day doppelganger. Someone upstairs evidently doesn't like him all that much. Or, then again, maybe they do.

A sweet fantasy romance

Is there really a Cupid out there matching us to our true loves?
Well reading this book sure makes you really hope there is.

This book has it all lots of laughter, tears and love.

I enjoyed this book it started off a bit slow for my liking but as I progressed in the book it got better and better. It gives you a warm feeling that love is out there for everyone, but some need just a little help from Cupid
