I read this earlier in the day so I had time to think about this. This book is about a second chance at finding love but I think it is more of allowing yourself to have that chance at possibly being able to find it again. Jack was so resistant to trying that when he finally opened his eyes it was almost too late. So to get to the end and see him take that chance, I felt it was big step in finally realizing that he deserves to be happy. I don't believe both of them were in love by the end of the story...I felt that both Jack and Margot realized they were both worthy of happiness and that they wanted to try be together and take a chance at a love that is worth fighting for. When I think of the story this way, it makes it easier to accept that parts I read about his late wife as he declared many things about Steph all the way up to almost the end.
After reading the epilogue, I truly believe that Margot and Jack were meant to be together and were soulmates. I believe that while Steph and Jack complimented each other, Margot and Jack completed each other. Steph kept Jack from spiraling while Margot showed him how to be a better man. Steph was true devotion and Margot was true love.
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.
I LOVED it. I loved Margot & Jack so so so much.
Margot comes from Old Money. Margot lives a privileged and somewhat sheltered life, never knowing true pain. Margot thought she would be married with kids by now... after all,
"Thurber women marry and have children by thirty..."
Jack works as a farmer. Jack has known great love and great loss. Jack is stuck.
"It was my pain. I'd earned it. I guarded it closely."
Margot wants to get married and have children.
Jack wants none of that. He knows you don't get 2 greats loves in one lifetime. Or do you?
Margot & Jack meet when she comes to the farm, at his siblings' request & much to his dismay, to do some PR work for the farm.
Jack doesn't like change. Things were just fine the way they were.
Margot found Jack to be attractive, but rude.
"Muscles were nice, but manners were better, and Jack's were sorely lacking."
Jack thought Margot was clueless.
"She looked like she wouldn't know the difference between a cock and a hen."
Their attraction to one another was just the best. A slow burn with angst (y'all know I love angst). You could feel their push & pull.
The way Melanie wrote Jack, with all of his guilt and grief was heartbreakingly beautiful.
"Just let me have this, I thought as my conscience pricked. Just this once."
"'Jack,' she whispered. My name- whispered by another woman. the wrong woman."
Margot wanted Jack. Jack wanted Margot. So, they decided 'No Strings' was the way to go. Because that always works, right? Certainly, feelings never get involved.
...Attraction wasn't our problem. We had all kinds of that. Our problem was that the attraction was getting stronger. It was bringing us closer. It was making me feel things with my heart and not just my body. But he wasn't interested in my heart."
Uh-oh y'all. There are those pesky feelings.
I seriously just ate this book up y'all. It was so good. You should read it. See what happens with Margot & Jack for yourself. You won't be disappointed (obvs because Melanie Harlow is a boss). So yeah. <3 'One Click' it y'all!
