The Corner of Forever and Always is the second in Lia Riley's Everland series but my first book by this author. I never felt lost of confused by starting with the second book though and the focus stayed on the main characters, Tuesday and Beau. These characters easily drew me into their relationship with their banter and sexual tension. It was fun to sit back and enjoy their interactions.

Tuesday was a bit of a free spirit and she was overall a s

I had enjoyed the previous book in this series and absolutely loved the hint of Tuesday we got in it, so as soon as I saw she was the MC, I was all over it.

Tuesday is just as flighty and fun as I expected. She's genuinely nice and super loyal and it was so easy to root for her. Beau is stand off-ish, but passionate and I loved their banter and button pushing. Oh and their chemistry was amazing.

Plot wise, there was a bit of repetitiveness in the inner monologues and perhaps a teeny tiny bit of

…it was like stepping into Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory after a long diet of iceberg lettuce and rice cakes.

You’re a grumpy old man before your time… Your inner child must look like Benjamin Button.

Tuesday had always vaguely assumed she’d have kids until two years ago, when a friend from high school had called to cry in desperation about her sleepless, sexless life. After that Tuesday had moved that particular life goal from her “Must do” list to “Maybe.” Might be

I was so excited to read The Corner of Forever and Always. I really enjoyed the first book in the series, It Happened On Love Street which is about Tuesday's sister and Beau's best friend.

Right off the bat we have to talk about the titles, don't you just love them? Someone was working overtime when they came up with these. I will admit I think they are some of my favorite titles and I've read a lot of romance books

I was so crazy intrigued by Beau Marino in It Happened on Love Street. I could wait to dive deeper into his broody, closed off mind. And I wasn’t disappointed. He’s all gruff, antisocial, crabby hero (my favorite), with the exception of the time he spends in the company of Tuesday Knight – and that sort of set-up is darn near irresistible to me.

However, this one wasn’t a perfect read for me. I wanted to spend more time in the romance. I wanted more time with Beau and Tuesday driving each other c

I wanted to read this one after book 1 because the couple seemed like a disaster to happen, in the best possible way.

Beau works and works and works. No time (or will) do do anything else.
Tuesday is a whirlwind who jumps in puddles and plays a princess at an amusement park.
He is a mountain, she is a river. Oh they are perfect for each other. He needs to live, she needs a bit of structure in her life.

Yes like I said, these two are opposites. He went through a bad marriage, she has failed relations

Everland, Georgia may be small town, but the heart that drives this community is as far reaching as the stars in the sky. Lia Riley is a genius. With her catchy titles and her fetching characters she has created something wonderful. A place where people can grow and find happiness. The Corner Of Forever and Always is a candy coated delight. An aphrodisiac that keeps on giving long after the last page has been read.

Oh my gosh, yall. This cover. It's so flipping cute! It gave me a case of instant *grabby hands* lol

And The Corner of Forever and Always was a totally cute read, too!

The gist is that both Tuesday and Beau are now in the business of saving things. He's trying to save the town and she's trying to save the town's historic amusement park. And they might just have to work together to make sure both happen even if they drive each o

Overall, I thought this book was an ok read. I loved the idea of this story and am a big fan of small town romances. I liked the tension between Beau and Tuesday and couldn’t wait to see how their story would play out.

I did have one issue with the story and that was the pacing. It was a little too slow for my liking in the beginning. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with a slower pace read, but sometimes, if it’s too slow, it makes the story hard for me to get into. That being
3.5 Stars Rounded

My first introduction to the small coastal town of Everland, Georgia: this story uses an opposites attract trope with two personalities that are polar opposites. Tuesday is a free-spirited, grab it as it comes sort of personality with dreams of Broadway stardom. She’s headlong diving into every new situation, as long as a relationship isn’t involved. The flightier sister, her lack of focus on the ephemera of life make her appear slapdash- but she does have a grasp on kindness a

In Lia Riley's follow-up to It Happened On Love Street we visit Everland Georgia once again. This time the focus is on that other Manhattan transplant, Tuesday Knight. As Peppers sister, Tuesday is very much in the proximity of her sisters fiance Rhett and his best friend Beau. Tuesday and Beau have a bit of a contentious relationship, which leaves us with a great frenemies to something more story.

I absolutely love the language Riley uses. It's clever and this really sets the tone for the story
3.5 stars
Once again a nice read. This is the sister's story, who left NY and her dreams of being on Broadway too quickly without telling her sister what caused her to flee. The heroine is very open, friendly and bubbly on the surface. We also learn she is hiding deep hurts from her mother's abandonment and the series of losers she got involved with, the latest being a director who told her he was divorced but wasn't. The hero is the town Mayor and is all work and doesn't seem to like the heroine

This was so fun. It had the meetcute that wasn’t quite and watching these to very stubborn people go gaga.

tuesday was feeling like she was not worth much. She loved her job and the people around her but she was also hiding. Hiding from her past. and trying to figure herself out. She wanted to be strong and independent. Put together. Little did she know that she was all these things and more. She was also stubborn, determined and fierce. And when it comes

Have you ever read a book that just makes you happy and gives you a huge, cheesy grin the entire time you're reading? THAT is what The Corner of Forever and Always did to me. It was a charming, swoony story and I kinda hate that it's over now. 

Tuesday is easily one of my new favorite characters. I want to be friends with her. I found it refreshing just how comfortable she was being herself. It seems like so often, characters are trying to be wh

“You probably think I’m crazy,” she muttered.
“Let’s be clear.” He removed his helmet. “I definitely think you’re crazy. But here’s the important thing. I think I like it.”

There are few things that give me greater joy than small town romance, especially when written by Lia Riley. I just love reading her words—her cheeky moments, her serious moments and her sweetly romantic moments, all. And, having just finished The Corner Of Forever and Always, you could say I’m feeling pretty joyful.

Riley penned a humorous second in the Everland series.I thoroughly enjoyed this novel.

A small southern town full of adorable clichés - including an online gossip blog. Everland, Georgia is the setting for this book and is as important as any character to the story. The characters are well written and have such engaging interactions, it is easy to fall in love with them and root for the "Prince and Princess" to get their happily ever after.

As a massive Lia Riley fan, this book did not disappoint at all. This is the second book in the Everland series and I absolutely adored every moment of it. I laughed and swooned. I wanted to throw stuff and yell. I love that a book makes you feel all these emotions!
I really enjoyed Tuesday in the first book, she was quirky and fun and had great wit. Then you add Beau, it was a gong show in such a great way. These two sizzled in chemistry and their banter was absolutely priceless! I love how she

While Tuesday Knight's sister is happily engaged to Beau Marino's best friend, the two have little else in common. Tuesday moved to small town Georgia from New York where she was pursuing her dreams of becoming a Broadway star. Beau is as straight laced as he can get, and as the town mayor, seems to carry the weight of the world on his shoulders.

Tuesday's free-spirited nature rubs Beau in all of the wrong ways. And his straight laced, always business personality makes Tuesday just as crazy. But

One of my favorite things about the Everland, Georgia series is the small town feel. It always makes things a little bit more interesting and sucks me in deeper to the story, curious to see everyone's reactions and how the characters will fit in with the town as a couple.

Beau and Tuesday's story was a bit of a slow-burn, which ultimately worked for the two of them and made me dig a little deeper into the story. I loved the banter between these two, it really helped show their

Oh. My. God. Words fail me about how much I loved this book. I loved the silliness, the playfulness, and the sexiness. Wrap those three elements with a pretty little bow and you've got The Corner of Forever and Always. It was adorable and I loved every flipping word.

Everland is a throwback to another era when you knew your next door neighbor, people supported each other and a community was just that. Quaint and quirky the town of Everland is a safe haven for the people who live there. Everyone is accepted for who they are with all of their idiosyncrasies. For someone without a large support network Everland provides the family they have been missing.

The Corner of Forever and Always is not a complex, mind twisting, earth shattering tale of woe. It is a sweet, fun, sensitive, character-driven story where two opposites attract and find love.

Beau Marino is the uptight, no nonsense mayor of Everland, Georgia. He has a complicated past and has been more than a little unlucky in love. His whole world shifts when Tuesday Knight rolls into town.

I feel bad I don't have much to say about this book. It wasn't bad but I did struggle a lot to finish it. Tuesday's character bugged me a lot but that is more of a clash of personalities. I found her flightiness and some of her cases of bending the rules to be a bit much. It came across to me as irresponsible and immature to me more than endearing. Beau's uptightness was more understandable to me and while I thought he needed to loosen up I did like his character. And the other reason this book ...more
