Product Description

**The After of Us is a STANDALONE New Adult Romance novel and a SPIN-OFF from the Judge Me Not series**

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.

New Adult Romance/Coming of Age Romanc

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully written story of what happens when life hands you plans you weren't expecting April 10 2016

5 Heart-Stirring Stars!!!

I have been a fan of S.r. Grey's for quite a while now and I can say unabashedly that each book she publishes I think is my favorite by her. I can unequivocally say, the other books have been moved a little to almost favorites as The After of Us has now moved into the top position.

I had all the feels with this book and there were a few times I was brought to tears by this story, but in a good way. This is the story of Will Gartner, his daughter Lily (whom he's just discovered is his daughter) and Emma Metzger, the girl from his hometown that he had a crush on when they were younger.

When this book starts. Will has just graduated from college, has sweet new ride courtesy of his mom and is getting ready to head to NYC for the job of a lifetime or so he thinks. All this changes the night before he's to leave when his ex-girlfriend from high school, Cass shows up with 5 year old Lily in tow. When they were together, Will and Cassie started to go down the road of drugs and alcohol and while Will got out of that world, unfortunately, Cassie did not and it sucked her in even deeper. Hence the reason, Will is just now learning of Lily's existence. Cassie is doing the one and only unselfish thing she's ever done, by giving Lily to Will.

Well this throws all of Will's plans out the window and he does the one thing he thinks is the answer, he and Lily go to Harmony Creek, Ohio which is where his brother, Chase and his wife Kay live with their two children Jack and Sarah. Will thinks he can just "drop" Lily off and go to NYC to get everything setup for Lily to join him. What he wasn't expecting was how much he's already fallen under Lily's spell....

"Lily sounds so forlorn that something in me swells. I don't know how to explain it, but it's like my daughter's happiness is suddenly tied to my happiness. Weird. All I know is I really want Lily to feel accepted."

And so the adventure of getting to know what kind of man and father Will Gartner is begins....

Watching Will interact with Lily and how much she has soaked into his heart and soul was truly beautiful. Ms. Grey did an amazing job of drawing the pictures with her words allowing me to picture all the players in this book. Especially little Miss Lily. I fell in love with this little girl. What I loved even more was how Will changed once he was in Harmony Creek and began to explore what it would be like to give up what he thinks is his "dream job." In reality, he has other dreams that if he listened to his heart he'd realize everything he's looking for is right in front of him.

Speaking of which, this is where Emma comes into play. She's Lily's pre-school teacher and she's never forgotten Will Gartner and how much she liked him. They've both changed since they last saw each other and their attraction is still there. Of course, Emma doesn't want to take that leap with him because he's planning on leaving and that's just not something she wants to entertain. But that doesn't stop her from trying to make Will's dream come true. She's quite ingenious in her methods...gotta love a woman who goes after what she really wants. Because as much as she's doing this for Will, she's doing it for her too.

She's definitely not the shy and quiet type of woman when it comes to having sex...she's quite the participant that's for sure. In one particularly hot and steamy scene Emma comes to a realization....

"This is the after of us from before, who we were, and we are becoming.

As the book progresses, the story moves with such grace and ease that I fell more in love with these characters and what they mean to each other and how their lives could potentially be their forever.

Ms. Grey has a way with her words that draws you into the heart of the story which allows you to really "be there."

4.0 out of 5 stars Another hit by SR Grey April 13 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
S.R Grey has yet to write a novel I haven't fully enjoyed. This spin-off was fun and lighthearted yet serious and impacting. A coming of age novel that hits close to home for some and is felt by all.

The plotline was written very well. It was strong and effective at ensnaring the reader from the outset. As it progressed, the reader was taken in further and further and never released until the novel ended.

The characters were written so well and truly drew the reader into each of their own stories as well as the intermingling of several. The author really brings out the authenticity of each one, which aides in creating the multiple dynamics of each.

You will laugh at Lilly and her cousins, shake your head and cheer on Will, wish the best for Emma, and enjoy the relationship between Chase and his wife, Chase and Will and Chase and his kids.

A true journey of growing up, life lessons, following your heart, opening up to embracing life and all it has to offer, and truly listening to that little voice inside...and in this case, the little voice of a five year old.

I highly recommended "The After of Us." It is a moving and inspirational novel that any reader will enjoy and not want to put down.
4.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 stars. Great read. April 13 2016

I own every SR Grey Book but I have to say this was by far my favorite.

Will is a well-off college grad. And returning home after being gone and getting his life together in a big way compared to friends he left behind, including a girlfriend.

While home he gets the shock of a lifetime in the form of a young daughter after her Junkie mom leaves her with Will.

Decisions to make and choices aren't easy at Wills young age.

Ending up at his brothers to collect himself before starting his dream job in NYC Will gets his life choices made for him in the best way.

I loved characters, the storyline and of course little Lily is too cute for words.
Grey mailed it with a real life problem and solution.
Great writing. Loved every page.
Definite one click.

4.0 out of 5 stars A worthy read April 11 2016
By HelenK - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this book. The reason it didn't get the 5th star is because this book did not affect me the same way the chase and Kay stories did. It didn't have the same level of drama as the other books. Although I was very interested to know how Will story would evolve, it just wasn't as dramatic as j expected. I do still think it is worthy of reading.

The After of Us by S.R. Grey....Oh my goodness!!! I loved this book so much I could not put it down. This is my first book by S.R. Grey and I am already hooked to her writing style, I can't wait to read more books. The characters are so related I felt all their emotions through the story. Do yourself a favor and buy this book, you will be happy you did. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
