Love Ever After, First Contact by Paula Acton

This is the first of twelve stories in the Love Ever After anthology. I had already been told that Liam, the name I’d chosen for my character, was a popular in several of the stories. This is the first one featuring Liam. To be honest, I thought it quiet funny.


Reunite with your soulmate on a ranch in Colorado; escape certain death with the love of your life in Yugoslavia; toast marshmallows by the light of the setting sun whilst you find the strength to carry on; or search for your lost love as the smell of fish and chips dances on the sea breeze. Something for everyone, each of these stories tells of love in all its form.A collection of short stories from authors you know and love.

Karen’s Magic Review

I expected to read a traditional nice love story. What I got was something very different.
It begins with Sara, and immediately the reader realises she has had some sort of row with her boyfriend or her family. Dramatically, she walks off as if it was the end of the world. As she is running away, we are left to draw our own conclusions, so I thought it was a row.

Chapter two then takes the story back six months and that’s when it takes a sudden twist. I’m not going to say what, but with each chapter we move forward again and closer to the present day.

I was riveted to this story, and I devoured every word whenever I got the opportunity to sit down with it. A totally brilliant read, and we are off to a cracking start.
