I love one liners, and here are some that I tagged: "A friend. A person to listen to him even when he didn't speak, to sit with him even when all he wanted to do was run. Someone to stand on the shore and make sure he came back."
"They were twisted, tangled parts pressed together where they didn't quite fit. And Tessa hadn't felt anything so right, so mind-bendingly perfect in her entire life."
"You scared away the only person who's ever made you want to save yourself." This line killed me.
I hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.
If you're looking for a romance that starts as a bit of a slow-burn, includes a little mystery, a few tugs on your heartstrings, and a whole lot of intense and steamy encounters, After the Storm is exactly what you want.
This book is the third book in the Seven Winds Series. I haven’t read the first two books and could dive easily into Tristan’s story. However, I would recommend reading the first two books, because you understand the overall plot better that way. After the storm can be read as a standalone, though. It’s just nicer to get the overall plot from the beginning.
That being said, Tristan is a very tortured character. We get glimpses from his past, from the things he had to endure and the pain he’s in, but nothing concrete, nothing that is explained in the beginning. It makes you root for him in a way I had only with one other author (Jo Raven) till now. You want to skip everything else, just to see what happened to him and see, if he gets his Happy End.
Don’t skip, though. You need to read everything to fall in love with him and Tessa. Both are stubborn people, hiding their soft spots behind walls that also hide their secrets. Secrets that could destroy their careers, families and friends as well as their relationship. The author manages to entangle all of this in a beautiful way, that makes it easy to follow and great to come to the end.
The writing style was exceptional. I really WAS there. On this small island in the middle of a hurricane. At the luxury resort. In the kitchen tasting the sweets Tessa made. I was there. The words and sentences made it so easy to imagine all of these beautiful places I have never been before. I really am not able to describe just HOW beautiful the writing style is. It just is and you have to take my word for it, that you absolutely will enjoy reading this book. I liked it a lot. And I wish I could explain myself better than this, because this book deserves better words.
And... Last but not least, the cover. I normally don't say anything about it, since I'm not really focused on the cover, but I had to say something about this one: It fits the story perfectly. Absolutely perfectly and it's exaclty how I imagined some of the scenes
Tessa and Tristan meet in one of the most unconventional and quite priceless of ways. She can't help but be curious about him and He's trying to move on from the past. When a friendship blooms between them they can't deny there's some sparks too. When secrets and pasts come to light it's up to them to decide if they can get through the storm that is their lives together or not.
Both characters were two mysteries to me and I was anxious to find out their truths. I loved how Tessa wouldn't give up on Tristan and how caring she was. It took me a little bit to like Tristan but by the end I adored him. My heart broke for him as well.
I highly recommend grabbing a snack before starting this one because man did I want everything that Tessa made!! Ms.Ames' created a fantastic story that had a great amount of light and deep moments. Before having picked this one up I hadn't read the two previous books but I plan on changing that as soon as possible!! (:
