Review: "Fighting for Forever" (part of Love Ever After box set) by Elena Aitken

Ever since falling in love at The Springs, Rhys and Kari have been living a fairy tale, but fairy tales aren't real. Or are they? When Kari runs from the idea of forever, Rhys will have to fight for them. But will it be enough?

"With the right person, marriage isn’t a life sentence. It’s a life."

Genre:  Contemporary Romance
My Review:

Fighting for Forever is a follow-up short story to Falling Into Forever. It gives us a short catch up with Rhys and Kari. When we last saw them, they were living happily together. Kari had jettisoned her ex-husband and was living happily with Rhys. So, what could be the problem? Well, Rhys wants to propose and Kari is afraid. In true small town fashion, an innocent conversation between two people spreads the word and both Rhys and Kari are given a moment's pause due to well-meaning friends' input. The reader doesn't know until the very end whether Rhys and Kari will get their fairy tale proposal or not. I love how the author gives us the answer to our burning question - will they or won't they ... get engaged. I also love how the author includes so many of our favorite characters in this short story.


Fighting for Forever is released as part of the Love Ever After box set.

About the Author:
I’ve been writing in one form or another since elementary school but although I always knew I wanted to be a writer when I grew up, instead I earned university degrees in Marketing and Psychology and writing got put on the back burner. After my twins were born I was buried in diaper changes, middle of the night feedings and mountains of laundry—obviously it was the logical time to start writing again. I guess it took me while to grow up. 

I turned to non-fiction and became a regular contributor to local parenting magazines, published in four Chicken Soup for the Soul anthologies, and a compilation by Seal Press. It wasn’t until 2005 that I tried my hand at writing fiction and wrote my first novel. It’s buried on my hard drive where it should be, and ever since I just keep writing more.

Like a lot of my readers, I’m a busy mom. It often feels like life is pulling us in a million different directions, which is why I love to write romance!

There’s nothing better than knowing you have an escape waiting for you at the end of a long day in the form of a good book.

I’m lucky enough to live in the shadow of the Canadian Rocky Mountains in the foothills of Alberta, where I can write the stories I love. Whenever I get the chance, I escape into those amazing mountains and I can usually be found sitting with my feet in the lake, working on my next book. As well as contemporary romance novels, I also like to write women’s fiction and my collection of stand alone novels are all part of the Escape Collection. I’m always trying something new, so stay tuned to see what’s next!
