Amazon Synopsis:

***Reality Ever After is available in the boxed set Of Love and Magic*** 
Pregnant at eighteen, Sydney Richland's happily ever after is in serious peril. Her grandmother's ghost can work miracles, but she also might ruin Sydney's chances with the man of her dreams. 

"I love Cami Checketts! Her books never disappoint! This one really hit home for me. I made some choices when I was young that could have easily landed me where Sydney was. Luckily for me, they didn't when I was young and unmarried. However, this story really touched me and I related to it more than I care to admit. I also don't want to spoil the story but I also have faced what she did and felt pain and loss. All around it was an excellent novella and my favorite of the set." Julia Lance, Book Reviewing Rocks 
Don't miss this light romantic fantasy by #1 bestselling author, Cami Checketts

My Thoughts:

Sydney Richland and Crew Naylor were in their final year of high school make a mistake and find that Sydney is pregnant. They were deeply in love and committed to each other, but could their love weather this error and the storm it would cause in Sydney’s family?

Sydney chatted with her grandmother’s ghost who she’d been able to see since her death whenever she needed support. Figuring out what to do about the baby and telling her parents was the perfect time for a visit with Grandma.

Reality Ever After is a light romantic fantasy that’s also a bit of a wake-up call to young adults who plan on waiting until marriage before that ultimate act of intimacy. Sydney and Crew opened themselves up to a lot of difficulties and problems that they wouldn’t have had to go through if they had been more careful.

What they did about it afterward though was make some hard choices and grow up perhaps more quickly than they otherwise would have. The twists and turns in the story will bring tears of sorrow and joy, but most off all will remind you that a forever-kind-of-love does exist.

This is a wonderful novella. Cami Checketts handles this kind of sensitive issue so well. I gave this book a rating of 5 stars out of 5. Reality Ever After is also included in the boxed set of Love and Magic.

I received this book from the publishers in exchange for a fair and honest review. A positive opinion was not required. All thoughts are my own.
