Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Enjoyable and sweet, and just a touch of angst. Good writing, good story, sweet girl, and FREAKING AWESOME guy."—Maryse's Book Blog"

Cormac O'Connell had my heart at first punch in The Hurricane, and he completely owned it in The Aftermath. It was such a pleasure to watch this fiercely protective alpha transform as he took on the new roles of husband and professional boxer in this beautifully written follow-up novel."

What a great book in the series. I wish i had read the first book right before this one as there were parts i forgot about until the author helped jog my memory. This is action packed with a love story far from perfect, but any other way would not have done the characters justice, their inner strength and love for each other is an amazing thing to get lost in.

Cormac "The Hurricane" O'Connell's fighting career has really taken off and he is definitely feeling the joys and the pressures that go along with it. The rise in his fighting career, has lead to him to have to travel all over the world, and he would love nothing more than to have his wife by his side for all of it, but she had to stay behind so she could finish her college education. They both are achieving everything they have ever wanted in life, and they both want the best for each other, but spending time apart so that they can accomplish their goals is killing both of them, they know they must find a way to make it all work without either of losing sight of things. And just when they think they have a handle on things, the past comes back to haunt them, and Em's life is in danger once again... This is the follow-up novel to the "The Hurricane," and is told solely from O'Connell's point of view, which proved to be a refreshing change of pace for me, it was nice to see the situation told from the guys prospective. As soon as I started it I was once again pulled right back into the thick of things, and felt myself becoming addicted to their story all over all again. I got so involved in it that I ended up devouring it in less than a day, I just could not put it down, I was so captivated with these two!! Once again I was treated to a truly exceptional reading escape courtesy of Ms. Prescott's very impressive writing abilities, wonderfully crafted characters, which left completely satisfied!! I definitely look forward to more books from this author!! Highly recommend you give this book a try, not only it is sure to treat you to some very satisfying reading, but it is also certain to leave an indelible impression on your heart!!

I loved the first and I loved this one too. I wished it had been longer with more story to it but still great. I really hope we get to see all the other guys find mates. Little tidbits about how these two are doing along the way would be enjoyable too. The potential for more and better books is right there...please keep going and continue to "WOW" us!! s.

I have been waiting for this book since I accidentally stumbled upon The Hurricane. Loved how it not only wrapped up the story but still left me wanting more. I can't wait to see if this author puts out more of her work to enjoy.

Cormac and Emily are both moving forward with their lives. Cormac is trying to go for the Title Belt and Em is in her last year of college. Both of them are happy in their marriage but outside forces are still giving them problems. Frank is doing his best to sabotage Em's progress and make it known he is not letting her go without a fight. His trial is a noose around both of their necks and Em struggles to overcome reliving all that was done to her. Cormac has a hard time watching Em fall apart and feels helpless when he can only offer her support. It was nice to see both of them deciding to still fight on and not giving up on their dreams. The book was told almost exclusively from Cormac's POV which was a nice change. A good addition to this series.

Cormac and Em are back and her stepfather Frank is even more evil than ever before. Em has hopes that there is enough evidence now to put him away forever and that she can get through this. All of the guys are taking turns keeping watch over Em and Cormac now must face his biggest fight ever. But Em also must face many things and Cormac worries about his wife. Let me say I truly enjoyed book 1 in this series and now we get more and the author just blows me away. We get action, funny, love, strength and this couple endures even more. I cannot wait to see who the author gives us next as Cormac's brothers all have stories to tell. Liam has a secret that could go wrong when it comes out, Kieran well I can't wait to see what happens with him and then Larry the oh so funny Larry. I was gifted a copy of this book for my honest review.
