Forever an ExAbout the Book

Three Los Angeles women who’ve helped each other overcome heartbreak are reunited eight years later when their troublesome exes come back into the picture in this follow up to Victoria Christopher Murray’s bestselling novel The Ex Files.

Sheridan, Kendall, and Asia first bonded when they met seven years ago at a church prayer support group and now, their friendship has blossomed into a strong sisterhood. They’ve helped each other through the tragedies of their breakups and together, they’ve celebrated their triumphs. But now, their exes are back, wreaking havoc on lives they’ve work so hard to rebuild.

Sheridan has found love again after her ex-husband left her for a man. But old wounds are reopened when her ex-husband appears with his fiancée—a woman! And all of Sheridan’s insecurities and doubts come rushing back. Kendall’s former husband is now married to Kendall’s sister, Sabrina. And though Kendall has refused to interact with either one in the last seven years, she’s forced to reunite with Sabrina when their father is diagnosed with cancer. Asia has done her best to move away from her married boyfriend, a former star with the LA Lakers. But when they share a kiss, old desires are rekindled and Asia decides that it’s time for her and Bobby Johnson to get back together again. Read the first three chapters.

Victoria Appreciates This Effort

“This initiative is really not about me— it’s about showing the financial power of African Americans and I was just honored and humbled to have my novel chosen for this. But the support I’ve received…from my Sorors, to other authors, to readers….I’ve never seen anything like this and I am just so grateful. I wish I could thank everyone individually, I wish I could put into words what this has meant to me. This has been favor beyond measure! So, I have to say THANK YOU. From the bottom, the middle and top of my heart, thank you so, so much for your support with this. I am forever grateful.”
