what-happens-afterWhat Happens After by Portia Moore

It was never supposed to happen. ‘We’ never should have happened.

He and I… Our constantly crossing paths changed the unthinkable to the inevitable.
It was magical, exhilarating, and life defining… despicable, and it ruined everything.

It destroyed me.
It destroyed us.
He and I is what happened before.
And everything else is what happened after…

4/5 Stars!

Good Read!

I read this well-written, contemporary romance in one sitting. In a genre that most times buries us up to our necks in May/December romances where the male is old enough to be a parent to the female, it was good to see the role reversal…and she wasn’t even old enough to be his mother!

Age difference isn’t the problem in this story, ‘acting your age’ is.

Madison Buchanan is a forty-two-year-old executive vice-president for an investment firm for startups, who acts more like someone half that age who’s been locked in a bell tower all of her life.

Her husband dumped her, her mother’s a shrew, her father could use a spine, and her boss is the lost King of the Douches. These are not the people who guide or even influence Madison…they are the people who manipulate her. And, she allows it. Did I mention she’s FORTY-TWO?

Enter twenty-nine-year-old Sean Taylor. After a few brief encounters, Sean asked Madison out. Of course, the first response is, “I’m too old for you”, and that’s fine. Had that been her final answer, then it would have been solely up to Sean to change her mind. But nope! She hemmed and hawed, and listened to her BFF, Margot, who did what? Manipulated her into going out with Sean, then several chapters later, manipulated her into going out with someone else because Sean was just a “rebound fling.” The people both Madison and Sean considered “friends” seemed anything but at times. *Exhales* But I loved Madison’s brother, Liam, because he loved his sister and only wanted her to be happy. No mind games, no manipulations.

I also loved, loved, loved Sean! He was open, honest and genuine. Madison…wasn’t. To be fair, maybe she didn’t know how to be, considering the type of mother she had (oh my god, her mother!), and the type of man (THIS guy!) she married. There are flashes of confidence and individuality in Madison, but they’re either 1) when she lets her guard down with Sean, or 2) when she’s angry…and drinking. An angry, drinking Madison is a force of nature and blows down everything in her path. Only problem is the regret she feels when she sobers up.

Sean has his demons and past issues too, and some he’ll have to deal with during the story, but he’s focused on Madison and determined to not let anything deter him. At some point, I wanted the same for him from Madison. Every time they took one step forward together, she would take three steps back…running, drinking and crying. It was maddening. Sean gave one hundred percent. Madison changed like the breeze…just depended on who the last person was she talked to. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and man…in this story, they did not mind sharing them. Only problem is their opinions quickly became Madison’s guidelines to “what should I do?’.

For all the heartache and confusion Madison caused Sean, the ‘ending’ was anti-climactic FOR ME. While the last family dinner scene is fantastic – it’s a scene Madison has starred in before. While the apology to Sean is more than well-deserved by him – it’s an apology Madison has given before, and it made the ending feel rushed. Personally, I needed more accountability from Madison. I needed a personal epiphany with the heavens opening and a choir of angels singing as Madison looked up and the knowledge of self was revealed to her.

Okay, I didn’t get that. And while it may sound as though I didn’t like this book…nope, I loved it! Because it DID reel me in and made me read it in one sitting; because it DID anger me and had me yelling at my Kindle (insert raised eyebrow look from husband across the room); because I was totally invested IN the story and cheering Sean on the entire way. The whole plot line with Bryan? Never saw it coming! Kudos to the author! One click this one today!

Enjoy!

book blurb

Madison Buchanan’s life has imploded…

Her husband left her for his nineteen-year-old intern, leaving her alone and faced with starting over in her forties. With the help of her feisty best friend, Madison reinvents herself, armed with a new look and open to new possibilities.

Sean Taylor is gorgeous, fun, and young—very young…

He hasn’t had the best of luck. Sean’s track record with women is less than stellar, but when he walks into The Den one day, he just can’t help but be captivated by a dark haired beauty with the sad eyes and killer legs. She’s a little older, but he doesn’t discriminate. More than anything, he wants to be the one to make her smile.

Sean personifies the only thing that has eluded Madison all of her life—joy…

It was meant to be a fling, something fun, with no strings and zero drama, but Sean wants something more, and Madison is just not ready. She’s lived by the rules her family, her friends, even her boss have laid out for her, but her new life is not what she expected. Being with Sean opens feelings she never thought she’d experience.

The the demands of her family and her job throw her boring, simple life into chaos, and Sean is no exception…

Madison is left with a choice. Give in to the expectations of the world around her—or choose to follow her heart and be happy.

But choosing happy is so much harder than it seems.

excerpt

“So beautiful, tell me about yourself,” I said, hoping to steer the conversation down a lighter path.

“Why?”

I laughed. “Why not?”

“Don’t you think I’m a little old for you?”

I smiled. “I don’t discriminate when it comes to beautiful women.”

She laughed. “I’m sure you don’t.”

“So, tell me something.”

“Look, Sean, you’re sweet, but…”

I clutched my chest and doubled over feigning pain. “Sweet? Sweet is the kiss of death,” I said.

“What?”

“No guy wants to be sweet. Hot, sure. Sexy, definitely. Ruggedly handsome, well that’s a given, but sweet is just female code for I’m never gonna sleep with you.”

“That’s not what I meant,” she said.

I raised an eyebrow and leaned in closer. “Oh, so you do want to sleep with me?”

“What? No!” She leaned away from me, so flustered that her cheeks turned fourteen different shades of red. She covered her face with her hands and I laughed, taking a hold of her wrists to pull her hands away. Her blush and that shyness was sexy as hell. She seemed so reserved and quiet, but every once in a while, especially when provoked, this witty, sassy side came out and it made me want more.

“It’s nothing to be embarrassed about,” I said. “A lot of women want to sleep with me.”
