Review: Long After by Cheryl McIntyre
For Annie Phillips, there is a right way to do things and everything has a place. College and her flawless GPA are top priority, as is planning her perfect future. Anything less than perfection is unacceptable. So when she meets Loden Guiles, she believes she has finally found her perfect happily-ever-after.
Chase Malloy is funny, loyal, and an all around nice guy. He’s also sloppy, tattooed, and undirected. All Chase wants to do is survive college, hang out with friends, and make music. Knowing his best friend’s step-sister since they were fourteen, Annie and he have always had a love-hate relationship. The last thing Chase expects is to fall for Annie, but he knows he’ll never live up to her idea of the perfect man.
On the outside, Annie and Loden’s relationship appears picture perfect. But behind closed doors, Annie quickly realizes Loden isn’t the man he pretends to be. Every time her not so well laid plans crumble, and Loden proves to be not so Mr. Right, Chase is there to pick her up and brush her off. Will she realize the perfection she’s been searching for has been in front of her all this time?
*Long After is a companion novel to Sometimes Never and Before Now. Many of the same characters appear in Chase and Annie’s story. However, it can be read as a stand-alone book.
This book, all I can say is wow. It is the part of the Sometimes Never Series, which can all be read as stand alones but you should probably read them all together because they are all amazing! Cheryl is one of my favorite authors, I fell in love with her books when I stumbled upon Sometimes Never and Long After certainly did not disappoint. It takes you on Chase and Annie’s journey and it was filled with twists and turns I never saw coming. I was so mad at Annie for acting the way she was but thank goodness Chase was there. Sweet, wonderful Chase, I am so happy he found his happily ever after. Absolutely phenomenal group of books. I high recommend these, you will most certainly fall in love too!
