Title: After We Fall
Author: Melanie Harlow
Publication: November 28th 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.
ACTUAL RATING: 3.5/5
This was my third read from Melanie Harlow. I have yet to review the previous books I have read: If You Were Mine & From this Moment but I’ll get on it shortly. A quick summary of my reviews will be that I’m not really that impressed about the conflicts Melanie created for characters to not be possible to be together. And I’ll explain.
Okay, so since this was my third read, I must say that this was one of the more interesting ones simply because of Jack. I don’t know what to tell you except I guess I really like rude pricks like Jack and bubbly characters like Margot. I was digging it. I just had to keep reading to see how Jack and Margot interacted with each other. One, who was colder than ice. And the other one who was like what is your problem dude?
