Melanie Harlow always delivers on fun, sexy, sweet, and romantic stories.  But as far as I’m concerned, After We Fall is hands-down my favorite to date. I think this one had a more serious of a storyline yet she left her own mark on it.

Margot is a PR rep who has taken on the Valentini family’s far as her newest client. After having a disastrous evening with an ex she is more than ready for her business trip and extended vacation to meet this family and help them with their farm.  Margot was not prepared for Jack, one of the brothers. From the get-go he is steadfast against all the changes that Margot wants to make to business…which is actually all for the better. Though Jack has had his fair share of crappy things happen to him in the past few years. He lost his wife, just three years ago in a horrible accident. Thus closing himself off to any new ideas as well as a beautiful city-girl.

I am a huge sucker for second-chance-at-love stories. Yes, they have been done over and over BUT I think After We Fall was beautifully done and one of the best ones out there. This book completely sucked me in-I literally read it in a day.

“Careful city girl. I’ll want to keep you.”

This book is told in dual POV and frankly I loved both of them. Margot was funny, thoughtful, a bit quirky and as much as she was a bit entitled, she was also down to earth.  As for Jack, I think Melanie nailed it with his POV. She wrote his PTSD absolutely perfect as well as the sorrow he went through from losing his wife.

As far as the chemistry that Jack and Margot had…it was off-the-charts. The push and pull, especially from Jack, broke my heart at times, but who doesn’t love an angsty read?!  And when they finally hooked up?! Yep, that burning smell was my Kindle aflame from the hotness. Geezus…Melanie Harlow knows how to write some hot scenes!

It’s been a bit since a book has consumed me so much and thankfully I have a new book to add to one of my faves for the year.

“I’m not looking for my first love. I’m looking for my last.”

Truth be told, I didn’t want the book to end.Lastly, if you’re a sucker for epilogues-you will love this one.
