Each Ever After Box comes with a description card. This month’s theme is “Billionaire” and what woman would turn down a date with one? I really like the layout of their description cards. I’m huge on visuals and the organization is easy to read. The back of the card goes more in-depth about the four eBooks included.
Shopping for a CEO by Julia Kent– $13.99 on Amazon
I really like how the author included a note regarding the book! She even went a step further and added a drawing- how cute is Chuckles at the bottom? I also like the cover art of this book and the description on Amazon has me excited to start reading it! This book is a USA Today Bestseller, so it should be pretty good. The only disappointment I have is that this book is #7 in the series and I prefer to start with the first book in a series set.
Description from Amazon:
Shopping for a CEO is the 7th book in the New York Times and USA Today bestselling Shopping series. When CEO Andrew McCormick and mystery shopper Amanda Warrick find themselves in the unlikely position as maid of honor and best man in the Boston society wedding of the year, an undeniable attraction and dual stubborn streaks add fuel to the fire in this romantic comedy from Julia Kent.
The author even signed the book!
His Forever Family by Sarah M. Anderson– $5.25 on Amazon
This book also came with a letter from the author. I feel like the letters help make the sub extra personal. The book looks like it will have a very interesting plot twist. It doesn’t sound like a typical romance so I’m excited to read it! Bonus: there was a mini book included. I love extras!
Description from Amazon:
Tiny and helpless—the abandoned newborn that venture capitalist Marcus Warren finds during a morning run takes him by surprise. So does the sudden longing for his capable assistant, Liberty Reese, who reveals her tender side with the baby.
But Liberty must resist her gorgeous boss’s advances. Her secrets could destroy his trust, her career and the chance to care for the foster child they are both coming to love. Even so, she can’t deny the heat between them—or the fear that her past will end their chance to create a forever family.
The mini book included.
This book was also signed by the author- cool!
Mystery Jewelry box- $5.00?
This little blue box looks exactly like a Tiffany box. If only it was a real Tiffany box.. but then again I would probably faint. I love random extras like this in subs!
Pink Tote Favor Box & Bracelet- $5.00?
The pink tote is too cute! It will be perfect to re-use as a gift box for a friend.
Here are the cute jewelry pieces in the boxes! The heart necklace came in the blue box and it reminds me of the one off Titanic, love! The description card suggests you wear this when you meet up with your Billionaire boyfriend. The Chihuahua bracelet came in the pink tote and is adorable. According to the description card the tote & Chihuahua is a homage to one of the books included, Julia Kent’s Shopping for a CEO. Although they are both pretty pieces of jewelry I think my younger cousins will enjoy these more than I would so I will be gifting.
Champagne Bubble Bath from Just Bubbly in Aqua Spa– 8 oz. $7.00
The champagne packaging for this bubble bath is perfect for the Billionaire theme. It’s also very practical and smells good so I’m excited to try it out.
I love merchandise based off books & this one is creative. In one of Sarah M. Anderson’s book series a wealthy family runs a brewing company (hence the brewing company bottle cap). The cost wasn’t listed on her website and all it said was to contact Sarah, the author, if you are interested in getting one. Very cool collectable plus it’s always handy to have a bottle opener (cheers)!
Back of the bottle cap opener
One of the bookmarks included is based off of Shawntelle Madison’s upcoming series At Your Service & the other bookmark lists various books she has written. The one with the tassel is a pretty steamy bookmark! I love the pin- Keep Calm & Hoard books.
At first I was confused about the Japanese word card, but once I visited Shawntelle’s website it all made sense. Her book Bound To You it is based off two individuals with an interesting relationship & in the story a Japanese tech mogul plays a role so that explains where the Japanese comes in.
They even threw in 4 free eBooks, how nice! There is a description about each eBook on the back of the description card.
Verdict: This is my first month to try out The Ever After Box and my mind is blown. To begin, this is the most products I have ever received in a single sub. Second, it is a very well curated box in my opinion. For an average sub price you not only receive good romance reads, but they are sent with a letter AND signed by the author. Plus, some of the authors contribute book merchandise related to their series that you wouldn’t normally be able to get. I estimate the value of this box to be at $45.24 not including the eBooks or mini book. Depending on how much you like the authors I would also assume the value of the box to be higher when you take in consideration that both books are signed. I was really happy with this month’s box and already look forward to next month’s theme.
