“I’m surrounded by my family. I've been their protector, counselor, and leader. I was forced to be strong for them. But now, it’s my time to be strong for myself.” ~ Reggie Evans

Five years later…

The Evans family has experienced their share of heartache and trauma. Individually, each has faced the darkest days from their past to move forward with their lives. Today, they are stronger than ever. They have discovered the strength to move forward. Survive anything. Endure all.

Each Evans brother has moved past the turmoil surrounding Presley’s death and Jeremy’s incarceration, finding the love of their life and living in happiness for the last five years. Together, they have grown, wounds have mended, and there is nothing standing in the way of their promising futures. That is, until a villain from years ago comes from the shadows, upsetting the family’s blissful existence.

Once again, the family is divided, each brother forced to evaluate how crucial it is for them to stay together in Sulfur Heights or face the reality of leaving to survive on their own.

Everlasting Love is ultimately what the Evans brothers have been searching for their entire lives, but will it be the path fate has planned?

EPIC-Logue. M.S. Brannon made sure that her last book in Sulfur Heights would put a mark on me. It had my heart totally pummeled and broken at first before bringing it back together. If you think the longer stories had you shaken, wait until you read the shorter versions of it.

You need to be in the dark first before you can finally appreciate the light. M.S. Brannon had a way to break your hearts first to make the ending sweeter. I have watched these couples fought their own battles and demons and watched them grasp their happy endings with both arms.

I thought the hell that they have been through has been enough, and it was time for them to live out their lives happily. But no. This is Sulfur Heights after all – anything is bound to happen. Old demons from the past resurface and put another test to the Evans family. The family is divided, no matter how much they wanted to stay together, circumstances are forced to drive them apart.

One of my personal favorites in this final book was the last story – I think it was the most gripping, emotional of all. It somehow found a way to make me cry. It showed that despite the imperfections, despite what happen – family would always be family. They would go to the depths of the world, and fight your demons if you’re too wounded to fight it.

It’s a family’s journey towards peace and their happy ending. It was rough, it was dreadful – but the journey was worth it. Your four favorite couples are back once again, stronger and fiercer than ever. If they had survived the past, be sure that they will survive the present stuffs that fate throws at them.

My insides are boiling from my adrenaline-filled rage. I never suspected Jake really felt the way he does. Stabbing myself in the eye would feel ten times better than the pain of his words. I couldn’t believe he said that, yet I could. Jake has always been an asshole; however, this takes the cake. The moment he spoke his true inner feelings, all I saw was red. He doesn’t consider me his brother, only a stray Reggie saved.

Reggie moves to my side and puts his hand on my forearm, squeezing hard enough for me to take notice. I glance up to his face, and it’s painfully obvious he was also hurt by Jake’s words. Reggie is probably internalizing it and blaming himself for this moment, but I think it’s good everything is out in the open.

Jake is always quite candid when he’s drinking; I’m just surprised it took so long for the words to fall out of his mouth. However, I’m glad his true feelings are out. Now we can really move on from this night, and the night will be known as the one the Evans brothers became no more.

Reggie clears his throat, as if he’s trying to swallow down the fury that’s settled inside his body. “Jake,” he says in a quiet, deep tone, “I think it’s time to leave.”

“You’re kicking me out?” Jake is baffled. He tucks his flask back into his pocket before approaching Reggie. “Fine, I will leave. I always knew you were a pussy. You could never stand up to her… or him, for that matter.” Jake shoulders past Reggie, snags Delilah’s arm, and walks from the garage, shouting to her to get the kids as he moves to his car and sits in the passenger seat.

I stand at the threshold of the door and look at my brother. I’m really not mad anymore. I feel sorry for him. He’s defaulting to truly harmful words to make the rest of us feel as bad as he does. In fact, he’s acting like a child. Jake’s always been dramatic, so I guess I should have expected nothing less. Yet what he said is unforgettable. I’m not sure how forgiving I can be after hearing what he said. The hateful words will always be in the back of my mind.

Zoe and Delilah file down the back steps with all the kids in tow. Delilah quickly ushers them to the car and straps them in as Jake continues to stare me down, taking small sips from his flask. He doesn’t know it yet, but he’s about to lose everything he has unless he has a come-to-Jesus meeting with himself and changes how he treats Delilah. If she were smart, she wouldn’t stick around for the aftermath of this night. Jake is bound to be intolerable.

Delilah falls into the driver’s seat and backs away from the house as we all stand in the driveway, watching them drive off. I know Reggie feels like he’s watching his family leave for the last time. ~Drake Evans
