    Awesome light and fun contemporary romance

    "She's my first act and she'll be my last. There will never be anyone else for me." Karina Halle is now officially number 2 on my list of Most Read Authors with 24 books. What I love most about her writing is that she can do it all. She has written books in so many different genres and I have enjoyed them all. So I am always up for a new book by her. Normally, the fake relationship trope doesn't do it for me that much. However, I really enjoyed it in this book. I think the biggest reason for that, was because of the very interesting characters. I was hooked on Emmett right away, and he got me all hot and bothered. I loved how they first met, and I really liked that Alyssa didn't fall all over him right away. However, the chemistry between them was incredible. I loved their banter and their sexy foreplay. Emmett definitely found a woman who could stand up to him. She said what was on her mind without a filter, and that really made me appreciate her. However, you shouldn't always judge a book by its cover. Alyssa made some assumptions about Emmett that weren't completely true, and it sometimes resulted into emotional scenes. I really loved how they interacted, and enjoyed the character development for both of them as individuals and as a couple. It had a very organic growth and nice flow. The writing was great as always and easy to read. This book had some very funny moments that made me laugh, but also sad ones that had me tearing up. One thing I didn't like was the drama at the end, it felt a bit forced and could've definitely been left out in my opinion. It did trigger something in the characters but it felt a bit cliche and unnecessary. Overall After All was a great stand-alone contemporary romance with awesome characters. I also loved catching up with Will and Jackie (from Before I Ever Met You), and wouldn't mind other characters from this book getting their own story.

    Beautiful Story!!!

    "After All" that beautiful reading I loved this story so much!!! Karina Halle is a master at writing romance and After All is no exception. I was captivated and pulled into this amazing read right from the emotional and heart tugging prologue. Once I started reading this I found it very difficult to put down. It was an intriguing, fun, emotional and happy story that all readers would enjoy. We are introduced to Emmett and Alyssa who both have troubled pasts and are just trying to find their way in life. Through unusual circumstances these two are drawn together and we see their friends to enemies to lovers relationship flourish into a hot, steamy, sexy romance. Alyssa is such a strong, sassy, say what you will type of girl who Emmett simply can't resist. Emmett himself is portrayed as a sexy, playboy, man whore but when he meets Alyssa he only has eyes for her. Their relationship is a roller coaster ride that is funny, heartfelt, endearing and very loving. Their chemistry was felt with every word and was just spilling off the pages. They teach each other to follow their dreams, trust their heart and take a chance at being happy in life. I commend Karina Halle always on her beautiful and exceptional writing and particularly for writing about an older guy (38) and heroine who wasn't your typical size 2 that we often read about. It was refreshing and felt real and honest, something we could all relate to.
