I fancy myself a purveyor of truth, a sifter of lies, a cutter of bullshit. It's not a gift, but rather all skill, honed to a razor's edge after one too many trips down the rabbit hole.
Some may dismiss my talent as misguided cynicism, but they'd be wrong. Clichés about hope and faith in mankind are an effort to keep the dreamers dreaming. Experiences don't lie - people do.
While I'm not proud of the circumstances that led me to this way of thinking, I respect the journey. The road to enlightenment can be dark and foreboding, but the destination makes it all worthwhile. But funny thing about the past - it's a defiant child refusing to stay in time out. No matter how deeply buried, it can always pop up when least expected, and sink its claws into the flesh of your heart.
I've avoided this day, ran from it, for the past eight years. And still we meet again.
But to truly understand, to feel my dread and fear my future as I do, it's important to know what happened in my past. Or who...My name is Marlo Rivers, and this is my story of corrupted love. Contains mature themes.

5 I'm Wherever You Are Stars!
Heartbreaking, brilliant, and emotional.
I loved the rawness and brutal honesty. This isn't a story of rainbows and unicorns. It's life in all it's glory and pain. I think this quote from the book sums it up perfectly, "We all live in a world of bumps and bruises. No one lives on this Earth for very long without collecting a few scars. That’s the meat of all of us—what makes us who we are."
Marlo was incredible! Neva did a phenomenal job and brought so much emotion and feeling to the character. I was laughing hysterically one minute and then clutching my heart the next. Neva's performance made me love Marlo even more! Jeremy York as Ever was wonderful too, but Neva and Marlo really stole the show!
YES! I wanted to ignore all adulting and responsibilities and just indulge in this amazing book! It was captivating and gripping and I could not wait to get back to it each time I had to stop.
Please note that this is book 1 in the duet and that Marlo and Ever's story concludes in Ever Over After.
I'll be reading book 2 , Ever Over After, since the audiobook is not available yet and I can't wait to find out what happens.
