Dr. Jordan Peterson's world was literally obliterated. How does anyone find the strength to go on after such loss? He knows he's supposed to—friends and family show their support, their love and concern, but it just doesn't matter anymore.
As successful as Lucas Conover is, he has lived a lonely life with no family and never any love. His childhood was something straight out of a horror story. (Think—foster family gone terribly wrong)
You know what's going to happen next, right? Not so fast. Sure, Luke and Jordan find themselves attracted to one another, but they have some major hurdles to overcome individually.
As the two of them spend time together coordinating a youth center, which was a part of Keith's dream (Jordan's lover), they don't even realize they've been helping the other find their way.
This story is painful and heart-wrenching. It's a reminder of what's important and not to take anything for granted. It's also a story of second chances, redemption, and self-worth.
For those familiar with this series or with any of Felice Stevens books, you know how family and close friends are one and the same. Her characters are so real—flaws and all. Yet, they're the only ones that matter. Luke and Jordan don't get to heaven without passing through hell. But when they do, it's the pinnacle of ultimate beauty. Absolutely a must read series from one of the BEST authors out there. Hands down, five shining stars for me.
Here is where my issue comes in. Luke is attracted to Jordan, and okay fine, that’s believable. But Jordan’s reaction to Luke after nine months of grieving and virtually no contact with the outside world is to glom on to Luke and then they fall in love lickety split? The romance portion of this story felt contrived to me. Additionally, we have the Luke/Asher connection to contend with. While I can understand Luke’s reticence to have a meet and greet with Asher, as an adult one would think he could reflect and come up with the thought that perhaps Asher couldn’t contact him rather than that he simply abandoned him. The pacing was choppy with all of the subplots in play, and it was harder to get emotionally involved in this story.
That said, it is still worth reading, and hopefully the final story in the series takes the best aspects of the first two and combines them into one amazing novel. Four stars for After the Fire!
