Jacob Matthews learned that lesson the hard way when he discovered just how far some people will go to win someone’s heart.
When fate brought Samantha Monroe back into Jacob’s life, he finally started to believe that his world was going to be complete. He loves Sam with the kind of intensity that burns deep and scalds your very soul. But fate had other ideas in mind, forcing him into a life filled with cold touches, long silences and complete misery.
Brooke Dugan had to have Jacob Matthews. It didn’t matter that he was in love with someone else, she always got what she wanted. And what she wanted was Jacob. Brooke vowed that she would stop at nothing until Jacob was tied to her forever… in both life and death.
Find out what happens when lies are revealed and the bitter truth comes out. Hearts will be broken and bonds will be tested.
Everyone is worthy of love -- even Jacob, but can he find his happily ever after?
Prepare yourself for the emotional follow up to Love Square…
Jacob, you broke my heart over and over. When you saw the picture of Sam’s baby I immediately began to cry because I knew how much you wished for the baby to be yours. What Brooke did to you was unimaginable and if I could have wrapped my hands around that bitch’s neck and choked the shit out of her I would have. To go through what you did, no wonder for a while you acted the way you did, even if your actions hurt others who care about you. Were you completely innocent in everything that happened? Hell no! Did you deserve what you went through? No. You. Did. Not. Jacob was a man who made mistakes and those mistakes cost him dearly, they cost him the love of his life, Sam.
“I held a precious, beautiful butterfly in my hands but let it get away.”
Brooke you are one conniving psycho bitch and I have no words to describe what I thought about what you put not only Jacob and Sam through but Kara as well. You were a selfish bitch who ruined the lives of many just to get what you wanted.
Kara, sweet Kara. I loved how she was shy but still had one hell of a backbone. She truly loves Jacob, he is her one and only and when he hurts her I cried because I knew she was what Jacob needed to heal. I love how she wouldn’t take Jacob’s shit but knew when to back off as well. She was exactly who Jacob needed to be with, she is perfect for him, even more perfect than Sam. Kara loves Jacob and only wants him to love her back.
When Jacob and Kara finally overcome everything that has happened and are able to open their hearts to one another, it is a beautiful thing. These two deserve to be each other’s happiness and Jacob deserves his ever after with someone who truly loves him and who he truly loves as well.
“Some people only get a once upon a time. Jacob is giving me his ever after.”
When I started this I wasn’t sure how I felt about Jacob being with anyone but Sam. The connection they shared in Love Squared was off the charts. They had chemistry, both in and out of bed, and loved each other. Had people not plotted against them, I truly believe they could have had a happy relationship. I quickly changed my mind though once I got further into the book. Normally I feel the most emotions for the female character in the book but this time my heart broke over and over again for Jacob and everything he was going through.
I didn’t expect to love Jacob’s story more than I loved Sam’s, but I did! I can’t even tell you the number of times that tears came to my eyes reading what Jacob was going through and feeling, I connected with him that much. Please if you haven’t read Love Squared yet, go pick it up and then immediately read His Ever After. I promise you, this is one that you will want to read ASAP.
