After We Fall by Melanie Harlow
Publication Date: November 28th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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 for ten days, 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 three years ago 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.
“Second chances are not given to make things right, but are given to prove that we could be even better after we fall.” —Unknown
A sweet, rich city girl and a hot, delicious, brooding country boy? Yes PLEASE, if it’s Melanie Harlow giving me the story! Once again, she does NOT disappoint with her newest novel After We Fall. I fell fast, I fell deep and I fell so freaking hard in absolute unwavering love with Jack and Margot!
Margot heads out to the country to help the Valentini brothers with some much needed branding. Only one problem, everyone is on board except Jack. He wants absolutely no part of changing one single thing about the farm, let alone anything in his life. This hot, sexy farmer can’t let go of the past and keeps himself entirely closed off. When Margot shows this country boy that she may be a city gal but she is one who is quick learner, smart and doesn’t mind getting her nails, or those boots dirty it stirs something within him. She surprises him at every turn and despite his very carefully constructed walls, Margot begins to break them down and Jack shows Margot something she’s never felt before.
What happens when those walls start to crumble? Does something beautiful blossom or does it all come tumbling down? Well, you’ll have to read to find out! I laughed, I cried, I swooned. This book had everything you want in a good read to cozy up with and spend the entire day glued to your e-reader. I once again bow down to Melanie Harlow for another brilliant read!
Melanie Harlow likes her martinis dry, her heels high, and her history with the naughty bits left in. When she’s not writing or reading, she gets her kicks from TV series like VEEP, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, and Homeland. She occasionally runs three miles, but only so she can have more gin and steak.
Melanie is the author of the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s. She lifts her glass to romance readers and writers from her home near Detroit, MI, where she lives with her husband, two daughters, and pet rabbit.
