Title: After We Fall
Author: Melanie Harlow
Release Date: November 28, 2016
Jack Valentini isn’t my type.
Sexy, brooding cowboys are fine in the movies, but in real life, I prefer a suit and tie. Proper manners. A close shave.
Jack might be gorgeous, but he’s also scruffy, rugged, and rude. He wants nothing to do with a “rich city girl” like me, and he isn’t afraid to say so.
But I’ve got a PR job to do for his family’s farm, so he’s stuck with me and I’m stuck with him. His glares. His moods. His tight jeans. His muscles.
His huge, hard muscles.
Pretty soon there’s a whole different kind of tension between us, the kind that has me misbehaving in barns, trees, and pickup trucks. I’ve never done anything so out of character—but it feels too good to stop.
And the more I learn about the grieving ex-Army sergeant, the better I understand him. Losing his wife left him broken and bitter and blaming himself. He doesn’t think he deserves a second chance at happiness.
But he’s wrong.
I don’t need to be his first love. If only he’d let me be his last.
Add to Goodreads
Revenge is just a scone’s throw away.”
No reason for that quote there. It just made me laugh so I highlighted it.
This story was a complete role reversal to what we normally find in books.
She’s the rich one.
He’s the one with a traumatic past.
And goodness me, there aren’t enough cowboy books in the world.
Melanie Harlow is good at writing the less heavy story, with some humour thrown in. But what else the author is fantastic at is writing about real things. Situations that could happen in real life. The inner torment, the emotional struggle, the real feelings and ultimate heartbreak.
This is another well-written reason why I’m an instant fan of anything Melanie writes and releases. You won’t regret opening this book up!
