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

Melanie Harlow is one of my favorite authors. I love everything she write. No surprises here that After We Fall was another hit for me. This book combines humor and romance as well as second chances to make it an all around great read!

Jack and Margot both have had a tough run at love. Jack has lost his wife and Margot was involved with a dope and wasted years of her life. When her mother forces her to hide out for a while after embarrassing herself and her family (in her mom's eyes ) Margot takes a PR job at a farm to help the family farm out with getting their brand out there. 

What starts off as a job for Margot, soon becomes more when she becomes invested in the family, especially the sullen Jack. He is hot and moody. Their chemistry could ignite sparks, but Jack tries to fight it at every turn. He is not sure if he will ever be ready to move on from his wife and doesn't think he deserves happiness.

I loved this on. It was happy, sad, funny and emotional! Just the way I like my books!!
