Overview

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 is a new adult novel. Due to harsh language, sexual situations, and violence, this book is recommended for 17+.

Let me start by saying that once you've discovered Cheryl McIntyre and her books, you're sold. At least, that's what it was like for me. Dark Calling, then starting with the series of stand-alone books that are still connected character-wise—Sometimes Never, Blackbird, and Before Now—they're all incredible reads. Now, with Long After, Cheryl is simply settling in among the very top New Adult authors in this country. Step aside you bigger names that I will not mention because I am polite. ;-) I have a couple of pet peeves (besides bad writing, of course); poor or unrealistic character development, and illogical occurrences throughout a book. Cheryl never, ever falls into those traps. With Long After, I had the honor of beta reading, and if anyone has seen Casey Ford's review of Long After, I'm still doing exactly what he paints so vividly for us there. In my case, I was on a deadline with my manuscript. The goal was to read Long After between editing and writing, but as always with Cheryl's novels, the plan was null and void as soon as I started reading. YES, it's passionate, YES, it's real, believable, and YES, the love story is so breathtaking, heart-wrenching and hopeful all at once that it's impossible to put the darn thing down once you start reading. So fair warning, guys. <3 Annie and Chase are painted so vividly and in such a realistic way that I wouldn't have been surprised if I ran into them on the street. I would probably have recognized them by the way they looked at each other. This is another beautiful book by Cheryl McIntyre.xoxo

Oh Annie … you really are a complex character and Chase is just a wonderful spirit. Chase and Annie together are amazing but the road getting there was rough. Annie has crafted this world, which is very OCD, that allows her to function with all her insecurities. Based on what we know from earlier books you would have thought she had a ton of self-confidence but this was all a mask to find a life different from her mother's. Annie's growth curve in Long After is incredible and the fact that Chase is the catalyst for most of her self-revelations is what you least expect. At the same time Chase has to decide if he is good enough for Annie. We know he totally is but the interactions between the two is wonderful – I love their snarky banter at each other. We also get other insights into Hope, Mason, Park and Guy as they interact with Chase and Annie. So glad I found the Sometimes Never series.

Their time together was too short. She spent more time with the idiot than with the H. Liked the epilogue.
