"He was kissing me like I'd never been kissed before. Like he was going to war. Like he didn't care about breathing. Like something in him needed something in me so desperately, he had to find it or die trying".
Yes please, can I get me some of that?
This book seriously brought out all the feels. Jack was such a deep and complex character, changed and jaded because of life's tragedies. Though his choices in life were questionable, the size of his heart never was:
"I'd already met the love of my life; I'd known her since we were kids. I'd married her and I'd lost her".
Melanie Harlow did an AMAZING job with his character. I wanted to slap him at times, but oh how I loved him. There were some incredibly swoon-worthy moments in this book, but my favorites included the following Jackisms:
"Careful, city girl, I'll want to keep you" and "I'm not looking for my first love, I'm looking for my last". Be still my heart.....
And Margot, bless her heart. She showed up on the farm with her big heart and just wanted to make everything better. Though she went to the farm for a job, she found so much more. My heart broke for them both at times as they went back and forth in this angsty drama.
Melanie Harlow is an automatic "one'click" author for me. She is truly gifted with her words, and this book is no exception. You will not be disappointed.
After We Fall is a beautiful and emotional second chance love story. It will make you cry and break your heart, but just as quickly, it will make you laugh out loud and feel giddy with hope.
I loved Jack and Margot - both individually and together. I also loved that the story was told from both of their points of views and that we got glimpses into the feelings and reasons they were acting the way they were. On paper, Margot and Jack couldn't be more different, but once the walls and masks fell away, they really complemented each other so well. I did want to scream at Jack a few times for the way he behaved, but in the end it was hard not to fall in love with him after everything he had experienced. Plus, there were plenty of swoony and steamy moments that left me blushing! Let's just say, that I have a new appreciation for farmers! ;)
The other characters in the book were just as great! I loved Jack's brothers, Pete and Brad, and his sister in law, Georgia, and how cute was his nephew, Cooper!? My heart melted every time they were together. I liked that his family pushed when they needed to, but also just supported Jack the way that they thought was most helpful (even if Jack didn't/couldn't see it that way). I especially enjoyed Margot's best friend, Jamie. She is the girlfriend we all need, who will tell you like it is, but still have your back 100%. One of my favorite parts of the book though, were all the scone puns! Seriously, they were so funny and helped lighten the mood when things got a little heavy.
I definitely enjoyed After We Fall a lot and the only reason it's not 5 stars for me is that I'm not really a fan of the dead spouse/lover storyline and I thought the ending chapters felt a little rushed. The epilogue was perfection though and Melanie's writing is so witty and relatable that this was still an amazing read! If you're really not a fan of the dead spouse trope though, you may not enjoy the book as much since it plays a big part in Jack's character arc.
Jack and Margot will totally steal your hearts. Jack, because how can you resist a broody war vet who doesn't think he deserves a second chance at love? And Margot, because she's a city girl who's learned not to be afraid to step out of her comfort zone and stir things up a bit. On paper they couldn't be more different- he's a farmer struggling to make something of his family's farm, she's a member of the upper crust who's had every advantage in life you could imagine. But she's the yin to his yang and together they are so incredibly perfect. Your heart will swell with emotion as you
go on this breathtaking and heartwrenching journey of love and self-discovery with two people who are undeniably meant to be together.
After We Fall is the best of everything that is Melanie Harlow...it has a compelling and completely engaging storyline; endearing and captivating main characters; caring and encouraging side characters; and a locale that makes me want to pack my bags and move. This book is exactly what I've come to expect from her, and I adored every single word of it. Every.Single.Word.
