Finding Ever After
After three years of trying to escape her past, Jaxyn is finally done running, and returning home to Boston to face the friends she abandoned and the nightmare that still wakes her in the night.
Back in the childhood home that holds all of her memories from before life showed her that 'happily ever afters' don't come easy, she is unsure of what the future holds. The one thing she definitely wasn't expecting was Kyden McCabe, the hot, tattooed and pierced musician she meets her first night back.
All she ever wanted as a little girl was to be swept off her feet by a prince, but Ky is nothing like the heroes from the stories her mom used to read to her. He's arrogant, frustrating and completely wrong for her. He lives his life one night stand at a time and she knows he's nothing but trouble.
Still haunted by her past and afraid to let anyone see the scars she hides, she fights the attraction she feels for Kyden and wonders if she'll ever find her storybook ending. Then a monster from her past threatens to rip away her chances before she realizes that maybe she already found it.

About the Author
Stephanie Hoffman McManus is a New Adult romance author who debuted her first series in Spring of 2014, but her love affair with books began at an early age. She consumed them from the moment she learned to read, loving nothing more than to get lost in the fictional worlds that came to life on the pages. Creating her own stories was something she always enjoyed but never pursued until she wrote Finding Ever After, her first novel.
She has many passions besides books, including drawing, painting, design, baking and cake decorating. Prior to the release of her first novel, she was running her own bakery and cake shop in the small town where she was born and raised and returned home to after moving away for college. Now she devotes most of her time to her eight year old son and their adventures in life, whether it be epic Nerf battles, ninja walks, zombie runs, Lego building or whatever crazy idea he comes up with. Becoming Mommy has been her greatest adventure, but becoming a self published indie author has been an incredible journey that has allowed her to grow and learn so much and meet some very incredible fellow book lovers, which has been her favorite part of the journey.
