What if you got to see a glimpse of the "happy" your future holds. Would you believe?
LIAM O'SHEA did. Unconditionally. Once upon a forever ago.
All I knew was pain – a childhood filled with cruelty and villains who used and abused.
I first heard her sweet, angelical voice in the dark of night, when I lay bathed in my own impending death. Seventeen years later, it’s not the nightmare she pulled me out of that haunts me, but the glimpse of Happily Ever After she revealed just before disappearing.
They said she was a figment of my boundless imagination. A wish. A dream. Until I had no choice but to believe them, cherishing my imaginary savior the only way I knew how – in fiction and lore.
But fantasy has a way of transforming reality. When I finally tire of being a citizen of the world, I take an impromptu sabbatical as a professor at a small college on the coast of Maine. And there I see her, the girl with the sea-green eyes and angelic voice.
My world turns upside down. Turns out my girl is for real, and the pull between us is anything but imaginary.
Happily Ever After has a story ... and this one is mine.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The love story of Liam and Eolie is really beautiful.The journey of their life, the way they overcome the different problems that arises, and still stand united is engaging and well written. I also liked his group of friends, who were also like his family, they stood beside him althrough the novel, helping him when needed. Having said the good words, I would say that I found the novel to be a bit slow paced at parts, and a little unbelievable, in few places. This were the only bad points about this novel. “Happily Ever After isn’t a destination, it’s an ongoing journey that never ends and only gets better.”– A quote from the novel. This book actually made me believe this. Overall I would say that this novel is beautifully written. I enjoyed reading it and I would recommend it to all romance lovers.
Beautiful romance I like romance reads full of angst and heartache just as the next girl. However, I enjoy reading a cute love story just as much. Incandescently had me laughing, crying, swooning. But above all, it got me rooting for Liam and Eolie. They're so good together you can't resist them. Sylvie does a great job at fleshing out the characters, describing the situations, and involving the reader in her story. You won't want to put this one down as you flip through the pages to know what happens next in this well-written start to a promising new series. I highly recommend this book.
Soon worthy, lovey dovey, melt your heart, feel good, chick flick book!!! Yeap, that about sums it up!! Right from the get go, there is a warning (which by the way I found endearing and funny, and loved it all the way) stating that this book has a HEA, and it is a happy story and “it may prove infectious, so beware” Imaging being seven years old and finding yourself in the most awful situation possible, and then having a wonderful imaginary friend that accompanies you throughout your horrible ordeal. Now imagine yourself some 17 years later, and suddenly hearing her voice again, only this time she need your help!!!! Normally I write a little bit about the book, but really there is so much to tell, and I feel that it gives so much, and I really really would like for you, my one reader, to read this book!! When I started to read the book, I thought to myself that it was going to be a fun read, with fun and lovely characters, but not really the type of book where the characters draw you in, but boy was I wrong! Liam, had a crappy childhood but with a twist, the love of his life, the one thing that kept him going, Eolie a figment of his imagination, a friend that only spoke to him,that healed him, and suddenly she was gone . But that only fueled his capacity for storytelling, one he put to good use when he wrote his best selling book. Everyone told him she was a coping mechanism for his traumas, everyone except his GGS buddies. This one imaginary friend or coping mechanism, or whatever you want to call it left him unable to have a real relationship, because everyone fell short to what life would be with her, nothing felt right, he had found his “home” at 7 years old, and now some years later, he was still searching for that feeling of “normal” of belonging… of home! Eolie, the heroine of this book is a wonderful human being, one with the capability of finding the beauty in everything, and everyone, making her different from the rest of the people because she has some unusual tricks up her sleeve. Sylvie Parizeau definitely know how to write a swoon worthy novel, with twist and turns you definitely did not expect, jumping you a little to the right and then to the left, leaving you hanging on her every word. Sometimes I just wanted to throw the book away, ok, maybe not, because its a tablet and would break, but I did close it, breathed in and out and then started again, thinking that the book was going somewhere only to find out that no… I was wrong, it went differently than I thought, and let me tell you something, i love when that happens.
Sylvie tells a delightful, magical HEA story! It totally captured my heart and I cannot wait read about Liam's best friends and their HEA stories. Liam and Eolie are bound together through their thoughts at an early age, both there for each other during trying times. Their special bond is severed and neither can hear or reach each other for many, many years. The link is abruptly reconnected when Eolie needs Liam the most and their search for each other begins in earnest. Join Eolie and Liam in their quest for HEA, along with Liam's crazy best friends. I would have loved to have told a little bit more about the story in my review but I'm totally against spoilers and the readers deserve this wonderful journey.
