ARC Review: After We Fall by Marquita Valentine

Title: After We Fall

Author: Marquita Valentine


After winning raves for Take the Fall (“crackling with tension, intrigue, and romance”—Katy Evans) and When We Fall (“sexy, emotional, heartfelt”—Monica Murphy), Marquita Valentine ratchets up the tension as new beginnings lead to undeniable passion.

A tough cop with an even tougher past, Hunter Sloan has never let anyone stop him from getting what he wants—and he wants Evangeline Ambrose bad. With her gentle curves and raw vulnerability, Hunter’s beautiful, mysterious new neighbor awakens his protective side. Determined to do right by a woman who’s gone through hell and back, Hunter could be the one to take away the pain—so long as his own secrets don’t sink their relationship before it begins.

Having escaped an abusive marriage, Evangeline simply wants to start over in the small, quiet town of Forrestville. She’s also avoiding all contact with the opposite sex, because she just can’t trust her instincts when it comes to men—not even with the sinfully sexy cop next door. So why can’t she stop thinking about him? Hunter has darkness in his soul, and yet no one ever made her feel so safe. For all her best laid plans, Evangeline didn’t count on choices this hard—or temptation this hot.


I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.

5 out of 5 stars

After We Fall, was a great, emotional contemporary romance novel. The book which follows cop Hunter Sloan as he falls in love with Evangeline, a woman who had recently escaped an abusive relationship really tugged at my heartstrings and made me feel all the things.

I haven't read many books with characters who have suffered really traumatic experiences in recent months, preferring to read more light-hearted, feel-good romances instead, but I got to say After We Fall was a good break from my recent norm because sometimes you just need a well-written emotional read and After We Fall fit the bill perfectly.

The romance that sparked between Hunter and Evangeline was so good. The way that Hunter was with Evangeline was just so perfect and left my heart racing. But as much as I loved the romance in this book, what I loved the most was getting to see Evangeline move on and start living again after everything that she endured at the hands of her ex-husband and the ways in which Hunter helped while still respecting her boundaries and not trying to completely take over her life.

Overall, I really loved this book. It was a great, emotionally charged romance and I can't wait to read more by this author in the near future.
