Review: After Math by Denise Grover Swank

aftermath1

So, of all the female characters to really feel connected to…I feel deeply connected to Scarlett, Queen of Anxiety Disorders! Hahaha this is so telling! Yeesh! But I won’t be ashamed! Anxiety is a real thing and sometimes it’s crippling! Hence, I totally get Scarlett!

This is such a great story of two people, enabling each other to be themselves. Tucker hides behind a bad boy image.

“Never in a million years would I want to be like Tucker Price. Unfocused. Irresponsible. Dangerous.”

Scarlett ends up having to tutor him, but the Tucker who she gets to know isn’t the Tucker that the rest of the world sees.

“There’s so much more to Tucker than he shows the world. A vulnerable, injured boy that created the man in front of me. Maybe he feels as trapped in his skin as I do.”

Scarlett allows Tucker to be himself and Tucker helps Scarlett work through her anxiety. He starts to “tutor” her on running, but really he just helps her step out of the shell she had built up around her life.

“He’s always seen through me. Seen who I am and what I need. It’s one of many reasons I’m drawn to him. This man has the capability to help me heal.”

I really wish that Tucker and Scarlett could have their own book 2, but the author, Denise, did tell me on twitter that there is more of these two in Redesigned (which comes out today!) and that we will love Tucker even more!! Is that possible?!?

Redesigned (Off the Subject #2) by Denise Grover Swank out June 10th!! pre-order it here!

If you haven’t read the first book, After Math, you can get it here! It’s only 99 cents! woohoo!

While fashion design major Caroline Hunter may have been born economically unlucky, in college, she’s been lucky in love. Until her senior year at Southern University. She’s gone from a serious long term boyfriend to a string of crappy dates.

Then she meets mathematics grad student Reed Pendergraft.

Reed is everything she’s not looking for. Serious. Headed for a low paying university job. Boring. Caroline spent the first eighteen years of her life wondering where her next meal was coming from. She sure wasn’t getting trapped in that life again with a man living on a professor’s salary.

An encounter with Reed in a club proves she might have pegged him wrong. He brings out a lusty side she never knew she had. But just when she’s about to give in to her hormones, Reed makes a fool out of her.

When she shows up for the first committee meeting for Southern University’s Fall fashion show, a fundraiser for underprivileged kids, Caroline’s horrified to discover the insufferable Reed is the committee chairman. While she refuses to tolerate his totalitarian rule of the committee, she’s not sure she’ll survive the month with her heart—and her pride—intact. Just when she thinks she has everything figured out, she finds that her entire life has been redesigned, thanks to Reed Pendergraft.
