I do not know Hanson or any of their associates.This is story is purely fiction. All characters besides the Hanson's belong to me. Do not copy or use without my permission.
Happily Ever After Doesn't Exist is the sequel to Bed of Lies. This story was started almost immediately after I finished Bed of Lies. I hadn't even been sure about writing a sequel, but it seemed like there was a high demand for more, so I decided to go ahead and do it.
When I first started writing, I wasn't completely clear on the plot and what direction I was going to take things, but as the story and the characters began to grow, things started to become clearer. I have to admit I was much more stressed about where I was going and how I was going to pull this story off. I spent many nights stressed out about it, and without Nikki's help, I doubt I would have ever finished.
As much as I loved writing about the trials and tribulations of Eden and Taylor's relationship, I was, honestly, very happy and relieved to be finished with this story. Rereading it and going through edits made me feel proud of what I accomplished with this story.

Five years after nearly being killed by someone she knew and trusted, Eden is still struggling to move on with her life. Insecuries and fears surround her life, but then just as she finally begins to feel like she is in control of her life again, life throws her another curve ball that threatens not only her but also her marriage and family. Will she be able to survive another hardship or will she give up and lose everything?
Again, I want to give a very special thank you to Katrina. She took on the task of editing this story, and she did an amazing job and was very helpful throughout the process. She managed to work through my terrible grammar and various typos and get this monster of story in order. I can't say it enough. Thank you, Katrina.
I also want to thank Nikki for all the times she helped me and encouraged me when I had myself so stressed out and at my wits end with this story. She was my voice of reason and never failed me when I needed someone to bounced ideas off of.
