Review: After We Fall by Melanie Harlow
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.

Review by Elizabeth
After We Fall was laugh out Loud funny story with scorching hot chemistry between our characters. This second chance love story shows that once you let go of the past you can open yourself up to a better self. Love can heal the wounds within. This story made me feel hopeful, sad, happy and well HOT!!!!!
Margot is a beautiful once bitten twice shy girl. She wants a fuller live but is not willing to settle for the wrong guy. So the distraction of the Valentini Brother’s Farm account is just the distraction that she needs. She just did bank on the type of distraction, in the frame of a hot, brooding, farmer.
Jack is is a man who will never open his heart again, a man who has lost his first love and cannot let go, doesn’t let anyone in… including family. He wants their Farm to grown and become more but, doesn’t want change of any type. They don’t need to help of some PR company to do this. Definitely not in the form of a Beautiful, Sexy, Smart City-Girl.
Can they be together, after they fall?
