Overview

Scarlett Goodwin's world is divided into Before and After.

Before she agreed to tutor Tucker Price, college junior Scarlett was introvert, struggling with her social anxiety disorder and determined to not end up living in a trailer park like her mother and her younger sister. A mathematics major, she goes to her classes, to her job in the tutoring lab, and then hides in the apartment she shares with her friend, Caroline.

After junior Tucker Price, Southern University's star soccer player enters the equation, her carefully plotted life is thrown off its axis. Tucker's failing his required College Algebra class. With his eligibility is at risk, the university chancellor dangles an expensive piece of computer software for the math department if Scarlett agrees to privately tutor him. Tucker's bad boy, womanizer reputation makes Scarlett wary of any contact, let alone spending several hours a week in close proximity.

But from her first encounter, she realizes Tucker isn't the person everyone else sees. He carries a mountain of secrets which she suspects hold the reason to his self-destructive behavior. But the deeper she delves into the cause of his pain, the deeper she gets sucked into his chaos. Will Scarlett find the happiness she's looking for, or will she be caught in Tucker's aftermath?

Ms. Swank has proven to us that she is a genius with fashioning science fiction and fantasy novels which include love stories thrown in for depth. With After Math, she proves to us that she is capable of creating such complex and awe inspiring characters that they will live forever in literary history.

    TiWi

    Good short book about two broken college students name Scarlett & Tucker. 17+ because of language and sexual situations. Hoped for more of a longer ending, but worth reading!

    Great story!

    Loved the main characters and I could really relate to Scarletts anxiety. Lots of intense emotions even before they got together. Only wish the story would have went on a little longer to unwind from the climax

    Once again Denise gives us a very good read. I would have given

    Once again Denise gives us a very good read. I would have given it 5 stars but for the youth of the characters. I have yet to be disappointed in anything I've read from this author.

    Unexpected pleasure

    Not quite what I was expacting. Scarlett and Tucker are complete opposites on the surface, but really are kindred spirits underneath. Denise hit the nail on the head with the "old soul" reference. They were both a little more broken/damaged that I would have liked or anticipated. The ending was a little too wrapped up for me as I would have loved to know the backlask/aftermath (pun intended) from the decisions at the end - specifically with Jason. He had quite a bit of input during the story. I can't imagine that there wasn't at least one more confrontation. Their feelings developed quickly, but that was in line with the length of the book. I loved the fact that I could feel what the characters were feeling while I was reading. I nearly cried a couple of times. That's a HUGE compliment to Denise. I'm not easily moved that way. This was far from what I consider the "traditional" love story, but it worked so well for the charaters. I enjoyed this read and would recommend it to anyone looking for a fairly quick read with an HEA. THANK YOU for that! I was getting a bit worried when I was getting closer to the end of the book. I look forward to reading the rest of the series.

    Promising, but needed further development

    After Math had promise, but I felt that there was a lot of "telling" instead of "showing" in the story. I also felt that the characters needed further development and the dialogue didn't feel natural. The story was melodramatic at times.

    Even so, I felt compelled to read the story as I did like the premise and the characters. I do plan on reading another book by Denise Grover Swank; I just hope that it improves upon what I felt were the failings within After Math.

    P.S. This is the same review I submitted to GoodReads.

    Fireworks and butterflies ... Denise Grover Swank sucks you into

    Fireworks and butterflies ... Denise Grover Swank sucks you into Scarlett and Tucker's world. Scarlett is a math major that suffers from severe anxiety in group/social situations - anything that she hasn't done before. Tucker is the school soccer star and is failing math so he seeks out Scarlett to be his tutor. Tucker likes Scarlett, she treats him like a normal guy, not the school soccer star, which is foreign to Tucker. Both Scarlett and Tucker have ghosts in their past that dictate how they function from day to day. It is wonderful to watch Tucker break through many of Scarlett's barriers and in the end you see that Scarlett has a similar effect on Tucker. A really enjoyable read about 2 people growing up and figuring out who they are/want to be. Glad I decided to give this book a try.
