Ryan McDonnell's acting career is falling apart in Delancey Stewart's Happily Ever His. He's not a bad actor, just a victim of badly-written films. Juliet Manchester is dubbed as America's sweetheart, the hottest actress in Hollywood today. But she's having a rough time after divorcing her husband who is also blackmailing her. Ryan's and Juliet's agents find a solution and they agree to be in a win-win fake relationship. With this game of pretend, Ryan can have another shot at fame with Juliet by his side, and the press won't bombard Juliet with too many questions regarding her divorce. They cause a hot scene at LAX before flying to Maryland, Juliet's home turf, to celebrate her grandma's 90th birthday. Ryan is true to his promise, not only to save his career but also to be able to send his dad to a suitable nursing home. But when Ryan sets eyes on Juliet's sister, Tess, he swears it was love at first sight.
Delancey Stewart's Happily Ever His is cheesy, hot, angsty, and funny. This book is a good choice if you're looking for a quick rom-com read. The story unfolds with Ryan's and Tess's alternating points of view. It's pretty amazing that readers get to know both sides of every scene. I like Gran's audacity, Juliet's passion, Ryan's sincerity, and Tess's relatability. Tess is the perfect fangirl but I'm just sad that she's always putting herself down. The romance is adorable; it happened pretty fast but it did not feel forced. The ending is appropriate and wonderful. Trigger warnings include profanity and sex.
