Agent Christopher Dawson has avoided Livy since she broke his heart. When the search for his best friend brings them together, the heart takes on a mind of its own. In a world where war changes the rules of life and love, can they work together to complete their rescue mission before the enemy catches them?

Bookishly Ever After 2018 ~ Sarah Monzon
It all started with a bet and a book.

But then her best friend, Tate Woodby, accuses her of living between the pages of her paperbacks instead of the real world, and he makes a bet that will force her to experience the adventures of her fictional friends. Emory must confront the pain of the past. But is it also her perfect opportunity to her own happily ever after?

    My Rating & Thoughts:🌟 🌟 🌟 πŸŒŸ    (4 stars)   

Releases June 19th!

I very rarely read novellas as I am not a fan of many as I prefer longer stories that give me more of an opportunity to really get to know the characters. However I was excited to read this collection because it includes stories from two of my favourite authors and I liked the idea that all proceeds were being donated to Live Strong Foundation. Collections like this are great for introducing to you authors you may not be familiar with.

Each story is unique in its own way with no one story feeling like another. Readers are transported to a wide range of settings featuring the upper class, farmers, mountaineers, spies, and the young adults. There is something for everyone’s taste in this collection – Romance, History, Adventure, Mystery, and Humor.

Personally there were three stories that I enjoyed the most - Give Me Thine Heart, Facade and Bookishly Ever After.

Give Me Thine Heart is the most historic story in the collection and takes you on a ship from Europe to America. I felt for Moira and the situation she was being forced into, however I did question her decision of leaving with a complete stranger for escape from this situation. But as I got to know Samuel I began to root for the two of them to form a relationship.

Facade had me on the edge of my seat, taking me to France as Livy and Christopher are spies on a mission. Danger lurks around every corner making me wonder if they would succeed with their mission and come out unscathed. I was holding my breath numerous times.

In Bookishly Ever After, Emory is a character that any book lover who enjoys escaping the real world by engrossing themselves in a book will be able to associate with. As much as I related to the bookish side of Emory I was intrigued by the excursions Tate takes her on. It was in these three I found myself easily caring about what was going to happen with the characters. I encourage you to pre-order this collection today.
