[Sisterhood Reviews] AFTER WE FALL by Melanie Harlow @MelanieHarlow2

by Melanie Harlow


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.

Review by Anne Milne

There are some unforgettable lines in this book and some laugh out loud moments. 

This is a good story about finding love again when you've given up on it all together. You might not like Jack at first, he's rude, overbearing, unapproachable, and to be honest not very likeable. But the more you read the more you will fall for this damaged man. Margot is a woman I can relate to -she's funny, slightly neurotic - she's so concerned with doing what's expected she's forgotten to put what she wants at the top of her list. 

The two of them are complete opposites, but sometimes love comes along when you least expect it. Their journey to a HEA won't be easy for either of them. Can Jack let his past go? Will Margot be able to compromise enough for a relationship to develop?

Review by Becky Rendon

Sighing with a big smile on my face is fairly normal - the wistful longing and googly eyes too. The happy smirk forming while I type this is because I'm a scone cold bitch. - Still not a typo!

I am in love with falling in love. I love the fall. I love the journey. But what about After We Fall...?

After We Fall is a second chance romance with new players... I'm the weirdo that assumes (yes, the saying is correct) that second chance is between a previous couple. Not always, but I like specifying in this case, because a good sconing is not always enough to deter jerks.

Ridiculous comments aside, this book is fun, sexy, and sweet. It has some awesome one liners, over the top reactions, and enough drama to make your heart twinge, even as a scone cold bitch!!!!!!

Still my absolute favorite line!
