About EVERMORE:

From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Corinne Michaels comes a new story in her Salvation series…

I was poised to become partner at my law firm even before I became secretly engaged to my boss. After being humiliated by him on my wedding day, I can’t face working for him any longer. So I quit, waving my middle finger on my way out.

Now the only things I’m poised for are unemployment and loneliness.

When an opportunity with Cole Security arises, it seems like the perfect way to run, all the way to Virginia Beach. I wasn’t expecting my childhood sweetheart to be there. I definitely wasn’t prepared that when we saw each other again, Benjamin Pryce would be so grown-up. So gorgeous. So Navy SEAL-ish.

And still the same guy who broke my heart when I was fifteen–and could do it again.

They say if you’re fooled once, shame on them. The second time, it’s on you. The third time, it’s going to be me that runs… unless he can convince me to stay forevermore.

Sandra's Review

Evermore is a standalone novella in the Salvation series by Corinne Michaels. The only book in the series I haven’t read is the first one. I know, I know. I will get to it someday.
Gretchen needs a fresh start. After being left on her wedding day, her life plans are forever changed. Without an home, husband, or a job she is off to Virginia Beach to work for her best friend’s husband’s security company. She didn’t know what to expect but she definitely didn’t expect him. Ben Pryce. Her childhood best friend. Her first kiss. Her first love.
Ben knew she was going to be working with him but he didn’t expect how he would feel. He hasn’t seen her since he was in his early teens. He never forgot her. And now, she was here. In his place of work. Looking like sin and smelling like sweetness. He knows her story. That her ex is a douche. He also knows she deserves more than he could ever give her.
Awww! I loved this book. It was a fast read with a lot of story. I loved the characters. Hard. The writing. The story. Everything. It was also great to catch up with the Cole Security family.
Quotes:
“We’re from Jersey…we know people.”
I laugh. “I’ll have you know that our families work in legitimate waste management companies.”
Ashton smirks. “That’s what they want us to think.”
“You shouldn’t hide, you’re too beautiful when you’re unguarded.”
“You may be The Hulk, but I don’t think you’ll smash me.”
He rolls his eyes. “I fucking hate that call sign.”

Evermore is a novella set within the Salvation series by Corinne Michaels. I haven’t read all of the Salvation books, but I loved seeing some of my favorite characters again, er, MARK! This is Ben and Gretchen’s story. It’s short, sweet, and just the right amount of wooing and heat! They were childhood friends and after years apart they are finally getting their chance. Second chance at love, second chance to be who they want to be, for each other. I fell in love with Ben as soon as he opened his mouth! What a strong, loving, smart, sexy character he is! Gretchen is stronger than she thinks and just needs to trust in herself again. If this is your first Corinne novel, take a chance! You’ll love these characters and you’ll want more, just remember Mark is mine! 🙂

“Anything interesting? Ben’s deep voice causes me to jump and fall out of my chair.

“Holy shit!

“You all right?

“I wouldn’t been if you’d made a noise.”

Ben chuckles. “I was trained not to.”

“Well, they did a good job.”

 

“I’m going to kiss you, Ben.”

“I’m right here, babe.”

 

 

EXCERPT:

“What do you mean you’re not coming?” I scream into the receiver at my what-should-be husband.

“I can’t marry you,” Harold tells me.

My eyes fill with angry tears. “You decided this now?” I shriek.

It’s my wedding day.

Well, it was supposed to be. Harold—which is the worst name in existence when you’re in the throes of passion—apparently has decided it won’t be.

An hour late, I might add. I’m here, at the church, in my nine-thousand-dollar wedding dress that I saved for. Without a groom.

I’m going to kill him.

My voice drops eerily soft. “Whatever the hell the issue is, we can deal with it tomorrow, Harold. You can’t do this to me. You get your ass to this church and you marry me.”

He sighs. “I can’t do it. I can’t, Gretchen. I had an epiphany last night.”

An epiphany? How rich. “Was it that you’re a dickhead who was going to destroy the woman who stood by you the last seven-fucking-years?”

“I’m saving you.”

Now I’ve heard it all. “Saving me, my ass!” I scream. “You will not do this to me. You won’t make me a jilted bride! I won’t let you.” My two best friends, Catherine and Ashton, share a look as they stand in their rose gold colored bridesmaids dresses.

Harold goes silent and then I hear someone in the back. “It’s for the better. We never should’ve done this. You’re my associate at the firm and if we do this, it will destroy both of our careers.”

A tear falls down. I’m so angry. I’m so betrayed by him. Seven years we’ve been sneaking around. I was his “Secret Slut” as I called myself. At first it was exciting. The sneaking around, late-night office romps, the little touches we’d share knowing that later we wouldn’t have to slow down.

Then it became impossible. I wanted to go to him when a case went bad, but I couldn’t because he was my boss. Gossip in the office became much more than harmless chatter, so we pulled back even more.

Finally, two months ago, he’d had enough of me complaining and threatening to end things. He proposed and said he wanted to marry me immediately. That if we were married, I could take equal part in the firm and finally stop having to hide our relationship.

My chest rises and falls because now, there’s no going back. People know. People are here to witness this, and now I’ll be the “left-at-the-alter lawyer.”
