Isla has had a crush on Josh, an artist who attends the same boarding school as her, for what feels like forever. It finally seems like Josh might like Isla back, but when the two try to escape from their lives for a little while to spend time with each other, they get in huge trouble, and more obstacles seem to be preventing them from staying together.

It includes:

• Profanity (F-word, sh*t, *sshole, b*tch, d*ck, and h*ll)
• Kissing with tongue
• Making out
• Physical attraction and desire
• A character gets an erection
• References to first time sex, feeling each other up, and getting under someone’s dress
• A few sex scenes describing kissing breasts and below underwear, tension buildup, going down on him, and a condom
• Drawing of a boy masturbating, teens having sex, and a naked girlfriend
• Joking about torture porn
• Reference to a bisexual girl having a girlfriend
• Violence (a bloody nose, being chased out of a museum for being too loud)
• Breaking school rules
• A character takes painkillers
• Illegal drinking

Isla and the Happily Ever After feels more whimsical and less realistic than the two previous books. The romance between Isla and Josh is slightly insta-love, and their desires for each other seems to be focused more on the physical part of their relationship. That said, Stephanie Perkins’ writing is still extremely engaging, and the ending is sweet and should please fans of the Anna and the French Kiss trilogy.
