    It is no secret that I am in love with the Ever After series I read the first book, Jax and Ky s story as well as book two, Ace and Sadie s story, so I was so excited to read Jax and Ky s story all over again from Ky s point of view It was fantastic We got to see so manysides to Ky why he had the demons that he did and why he made the choices he did when it came to love We sawof his sucky childhood and why music is such an important part of his life I ve never know peace like It is no secret that I am in love with the Ever After series I read the first book, Jax and Ky s story as well as book two, Ace and Sadie s story, so I was so excited to read Jax and Ky s story all over again from Ky s point of view It was fantastic We got to see so manysides to Ky why he had the demons that he did and why he made the choices he did when it came to love We sawof his sucky childhood and why music is such an important part of his life I ve never know peace like I feel when I ve got a guitar in my lap and my fingers are gliding over the strings I loved watching him fall for Jax, his Princess Who the hell was this girl that she could just show up out of nowhere, and in one night start shaking up my life Why did I want her so bad It was emotional and heart wrenching to see him fight with himself At times, I wanted to punch him in the nuts for the way he was treating Jax, but in his mind he really thought it was to protect her I m not a hero or a prince I m not even a good guy, but I can t shut this off, this ache in my chest When I m around you, I feel things that I don t want to Seeing the scene when Jax was attacked from his perspective made me cry Stephanie, you have made a fan for life I love your writing style and can t wait to read the next in the series Tiffany, 4.5 stars

    4 stars for Kyden s POV in the retelling of Finding Ever After I have never really been a fan of a retelling in either the male or female POV but this book was different than others along the same trope Where most of the time you get an almost verbatim rehashing of details we got to learn a lot of new information regarding Kyland s life.The childhood that was beyond bad in book one was in actuality even worse than Ky ever lead on Then to understand how he behaves in relationships or lack the 4 stars for Kyden s POV in the retelling of Finding Ever After I have never really been a fan of a retelling in either the male or female POV but this book was different than others along the same trope Where most of the time you get an almost verbatim rehashing of details we got to learn a lot of new information regarding Kyland s life.The childhood that was beyond bad in book one was in actuality even worse than Ky ever lead on Then to understand how he behaves in relationships or lack there of because of how he was burned when he was younger makes you realize why he had his strict set of rules Ky was living it up and enjoying his life until this beautiful girl literally landed in his lap Jaxsyn changed Ky on a fundamental level by making him want to be a better man someonedeserving of his princess So his rule book went out the window along with his philosophy on relationships.Loved the relationship and dynamics through Ky s storytelling Can t wait to read all about whoever is up next
