Seeking Forever by Samantha Chase
Ellie Shaw has a new job, a new home and a new lease on life – compliments of her cheating ex. Refusing to look back, she’s ready to put her time and focus on helping couples celebrate their happily ever after’s with a new position with Barefoot Brides. Just because she didn’t get her happy ending, doesn’t mean she’s given up on love. Unfortunately, one of the first couple’s she’s up to work with is her ex and the woman he cheated on her with!
Max Santos knows every inch of the Casa Blanca Resort & Spa property like the back of his hand – basically because he’s the one responsible for it all. He loves his job. Loves his life on Mimosa Key but…he’s in a rut. Work has become his life and he’s almost desperate for something to come along and shake up his world a little bit. And when Ellie shows up in one of his equipment sheds cursing like a sailor while she’s clearly hiding out, his curiosity is instantly piqued. Soon, he’s helping her in the craziest – and sexiest - game of hide and seek all over Casa Blanca!
Ellie knows she’ll never be able to truly move forward until she confronts her ex, but doing that means she won’t have any excuses to keep ‘running’ into Max. She thinks it’s too soon to start thinking about a future with him, but Max keeps proving time and time again that he’ll be there for her. And while Ellie’s been hiding from her past, Max has been anxiously seeking their future – their forever.

Seeking Forever was a fun read. I loved Max and Ellie and I enjoyed watching them get together.
Ellie has just started at the Barefoot Brides at Casa Blanca. She is excited for this new opportunity and wants to make a good impression with the other ladies. They have a lot of weddings coming up, lots of work to do, and everything should be fine. Only Ellie's ex-fiance is having his wedding there in a few months. To the girl he cheated on her with. And Ellie doesn't want to have to face them. It has only been a few months and she knows if she runs into them the new girl will not be nice.
The other ladies are sympathetic and try to run interference. The ex and fiance shouldn't be too hard to keep away from, only they keep showing up at Casa Blanca! The other ladies keep warning Ellie so she can go hide out somewhere else until they leave which leads to Ellie meeting Max. Max who she had a crush on in high school. Max who is still really dreamy and super sweet. Max who is glad Ellie decided to hide in his tool shed that first time. Oh, I loved Max and Ellie. Their little games of hide and seek were hot and cute and everything. Through trying to hide from her ex, Max and Ellie become closer. I really enjoyed this novella. It was quick, cute, and everything I want from a story like this. Give it a read as these two are really great together.
