Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Maxwell

Happily Ever After by Elizabeth Maxwell is novel about a woman who doesn’t have the best luck in love, but is an erotic novelist. She is a middle-aged single mom, that you wouldn’t exactly expect to write such steamy romances, but there is more to Sadie than meets the eye. If you are looking for a fun and entertaining book that is more than you would originally expect, this is a book you’ll want to read!

Book Description
At forty-six, Sadie Fuller’s life isn’t exactly romantic. She’s an everyday mom in many ways—a little overweight, over-committed and struggling to raise an eleven-year-old girl as a single parent. But Sadie has a secret—while the rest of suburbia sleeps, she makes a living writing erotica under the pseudonym K. T. Briggs. Though her own sex life is nothing worth noting, she’s fabulous at creating steamy fantasies with perfectly waxed, incredibly fit, scantily clad characters.

But everything changes when she encounters a strangely familiar man during a routine visit to Target. Is Sadie losing her mind, or has her latest hunky character wandered out of her manuscript and into reality? As Sadie tries to negotiate this bizarre new world, her eyes begin to open to romantic possibilities in places she never dreamed of looking . . . places where “happily ever after” might not be so far-fetched after all.Happily Ever After

My Thoughts
Happily Ever After is a fun read that would be perfect to read on a weekend getaway, or just relaxing at home with a glass of wine. It is the type of book that keeps you reading because the characters and the story both go so well together that it feels like you are a part of the story.

The author did an excellent job with creating the main character, Sadie Fuller, a single mother, 46 years old, and an erotic novelist. She is witty, charming, and definitely has laugh out loud moments. While writing her current manuscript, she encounters a man (very handsome man) who claims his name is the main character of the book she is writing. How ironic is that? Her world suddenly seems full of possibilities, more precisely, romantic possibilities, and the line between fantasy and reality becomes blurred (in the best way possible, of course).

Overall, I enjoyed this book and definitely recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good novel about life, love, and pursing dreams.
