Can the ending of one dream lead to the beginning of a new one?

Will Gartner made a lot of mistakes in the past, but he finally has his life together. Leaving his reckless teenage years behind, he’s recently graduated from college and is all set to move from Las Vegas to New York to start a prestigious new job. But when an unexpected guest shows up at his farewell party, all Will’s dreams are smashed to pieces. Suddenly, he’s taking a crash course in how to be a father to the five-year-old daughter he never knew existed.

Will changes direction and heads to Harmony Creek, Ohio, and the only person who’s ever really been there for him, his brother Chase. Chase saved Will in the past, but will he rescue him yet again? Some lessons—like fatherhood—can only be learned by doing. Is Will up to the challenge?

And where does Emma Metzger fit into Will’s suddenly upside-down world? Emma knows all about his troubled past and sees his hesitation to commit to his new daughter. How can she commit her heart to a man who doesn’t know what the word means?

Chase always told Will “Follow your heart. Always try to be a good man.” But will following his heart be enough for his daughter, and for Emma?

The After of Us is a story about letting go of old dreams, and, in the process, discovering what you really needed to make you happy was right there in front of you all along.

The After of Us is a spin-off of the Judge Me Not series and a standalone novel.

Review by: Stacey 

This was the first book I have read by RS GREY & I am happy to say I'm a new fan!!! The After of  Us is a story full of 2nd chances, love and loss!  I loved Will & Emma's story and Lily stole my heart! Their journey was one I loved being a part of and watching the ups and downs of it all.  

RS GREY's story was one I really needed it was packed full of sweet love and happily ever afters! Will shows that a man can change and follow his dreams with no fear of what will happen!

It's rare to fall in head 1st and I totally related to Will & Emma's hesitation but it was so inspiring to see love blossom!!!

5 Stars

I love a sweet read and this one sure hit the mark. I also adore a second chance romance!! This book had it all...love, loss, lusty goodness. Finding out who you really are is a crazy ride sometimes. For Will and Emma, finding the happily ever after wasn't just about them together. They needed to figure out how to grow a once upon a time crush into something more. 

I wasn't so sure about Will's character when he was first introduced. He was hot headed and very self absorbed. When a little white blonde haired beauty is literally dropped on Will's doorstep, watching him transform from an "all about me" man to a family man was sweet to read. Taking his daughter to meet his brother's family is where the love affaire begins. Seeing is character grow paternally made him ultimately ready for his reintroduction to Emma. Watching their relationship thrive was a sweet and full of spark. Once those two got going, there really wasn't much that could stop them. She was as good for him as he was for her and their unity helped add so much stability for his daughter.

This book was an absolutely easy read for me. No terribly angst but rather just a great story. The writing was well done and flowed well. I appreciate a good second chance love story and this didn't disappoint. Well developed and completely recommended. 4.5 easy stars

Review by: Tatia 

I'm ashamed to say that this was my first book by S.R. Grey. It will not be my last. I will make it my mission to read the others in this series after reading this book. So it's safe to say that this book can absolutely be read as a standalone. You will not be lost or confused.
There was a wonderful trait about this story, that even in such a short amount of time, you see so much growth in one person. I did not like Will in the very beginning. I found him to be spoiled, like he felt entitled to everything he had. Although he did have a dream he wished he was able to work towards more, he was content with the job he would soon be starting because it was making big money. All of that changes when his daughter is thrust in to his hands. A daughter he didn't even know existed.
This story was crafted so well. Growth in all aspects, learning what real love in a mature relationship is all about, and creating a family and life that is what your child can be nurtured and loved in is what it is all about. It was wonderful. I'll be getting my copies of the rest of this series and starting at the beginning.

4 Stars
