Books come down to characters, story and writing for me. I'm adding afterglow to that list. I realized with this book, that the feelings I have after I finish say a lot about how I rate the book. So here goes. Characters. I adore Jagger. He's been in love with Grey for years. He does what's best for her, always. He sets his feelings aside and supports here. Even when his best friend kissed her first, he was there when she happily told him his friend asked her out. When she got engaged to that best friend, Jagger was there for her. When that best friend died unexpectedly, Jagger was there for Grey. He helped her piece her life back together. He loved her. I was so taken with is character, his dedication, and his strength. I totally and completely love Jagger. Grey was a different story. I came to like her. She made some choices that frustrated me. She lived in her own head too much. But she was grieving and learning things that she hadn't known about when Ben was alive. It was hard for her. I got that about her. Charlie confused me a lot, until I figured out her deal. Then, I wasn't sure how I felt. Sad, I think. I disliked Jagger's mom - a lot. That one is on purpose though. She's made to dislike - hate even. Grey's parents are charming and made me laugh. Graham is adorable. I hope he gets his own book. His roommates are interesting too. Comic relief was their roll. Story. I had mixed feelings about this. There are some twists and turns that make the story uncomfortable to read. Lots of clues were dropped along the way. I guessed a lot of wrong things but finally had it figured before the final twist. I didn't like the truth. Not one bit. Some might say it was real. Some might say it was wrong. I just wasn't happy with the truth. Writing. That was good. This is the first book I've read by this author and she definitely writes well. Afterglow. Some people call this a book hangover. But not every book feels the same way when you finish. This one had me sad. Don't get me wrong, the happy was there but to get there the truth had to be told. The truth made me sad. And I wasn't content when the last page was turned. I was edgy and wishing I could forget. This book will appeal to peeps who have read this author before and loved her books. It's emotional and hard but it's also about moving from the past to present. To go from moving to living. If that's your thing, then give this one a go.

Check out the full review at Kritters Ramblings In the first chapter, the reader is hooked - Grey is three days away from her wedding and her fiance is on the golf course with his buddies and his heart gives out and he is gone.  Thankfully Grey and Ben were part of a threesome, friends that is, and Jagger is willing to step up and help her cope with her loss and get her through the last two years of their college career.  But things change when they graduate and head back to their small hometown - as they should! Grey and Jagger take turns narrating the story and thank goodness - it took this book to the next level.  I completely loved hearing both sides of their story and to hear how they both react to the same situation was awesome.  I also loved that since they grew up together and they headed back to that town, all of their family members were able to be a part of the story and their families couldn't be more different.  I find it thankfully realistic when the characters each have different family quirks and it is nice to see that no matter what home you come from, a friendship can still form.

Immature young adollescent--types dropping F-bombs under the guise of adjusting to the loss of a loved one. Hard to keep reading; not sure I can finish it. Plot seems to be stuck, going nowhere. Maybe it'll get better, but at this point I'm forcing myself to continue, and wondering why I'm even making the effort.

Molly McAdams has done it again. I have loved everything I have read of hers and this is no exemption. She thrust the reader on to an emotional roller coaster right of the bat. With many up's and downs. I hate when people give too much away in reviews so I won't even though I am dying to spill it all. Great characters that you absolutely fall in love with like Jagger(one of the main characters) and Graham. Then there are others that you hate to love like Charlie and even Grey(one of the main characters)at times. And then there is Jagger and Charlie's mom who you just hate the whole time. I loved the back and forth of Grey and Jagger's perspectives. I think it added so much more to the story line. Allowing the reader to connect with their situation on an even more personal level than if we just had the story from Grey's perspective. I like books that leave you with a sense of something unresolved and leave you wanting more. A neatly resolved happily ever after is always nice don't get em wrong I do love those types too. When you are left with a sense of needing more, the book hangover if you will, I think those are the best. You still get your nicely tied up happy parts with this one, but the truth that is revealed is anything but joyful. But McAdams does a great job weaving it all together!

Yet another great read by Molly McAdams!! This story started out on the sad side but grew into a wonderful story about love! Grey and Jagger were meant for each other! I have never been disappointed by Molly McAdams! She has always written stories that I have loved. I've read everything she has written and I can honestly say she is the only author I can say that about. I've read a lot by other authors, but not everything they have written. Please keep up the wonderful work! I am extremely excited for Trusting Liam to be released as well as anything else she writes!

Molly McAdams has created a heartfelt story of love and loss and love again. Two years ago Grey and Jagger lost their best friend, and Grey's fiancee Ben. Grey had a difficult time coping with the loss, but Jagger was never far from her side. When Jagger's true feelings for Grey come out, she is at first shocked, but soon discovers that maybe it's time to move on, though guilt is strong on her mind as she isn't sure if she is betraying Ben's memory. I loved the characters that Ms. McAdams has created. They are multidimensional and very complex. There are so many emotions that passed through me as I read LETTING GO. Sadness, anger, guilt, happiness, and contentment were all things I felt as I read the story. Jagger and Grey are so good for each other in their love, and Jagger's sweet understanding of Grey in her grief and his patience as he waits for her to discover her feelings. Grey's family is wonderful, while Jagger's family is broken, but I loved his sister, Charlie and hope that she can find her HEA someday. Most people are happy that Grey is finally able to move on, though there are a few that find her actions selfish. Ms. McAdams threw me for a loop though with a bombshell that comes toward the end of the story. Something that I never saw coming. This was my first Molly McAdams's book, but it will not be my last. I look forward to discovering more of her characters and the world she puts them in.

You people should just read this novel yourselves and write your own review on this novel. I really enjoyed reading this novel very much. ShelleyMA

I made myself read to the end to see if it got any better. Nope. The characters all needed therapy,especially the main female ...the first chapters were so depressing, she anguished over and over. It was like, "Enough already!" Towards the end, the pace picked up, but certainly not one I'll remember or keep.

One way to escape the summer heat is to read this romance novel. Grey LaRue looses her financee with a heart problem a day before her wedding. Grey barely goes through college lost in the depression of her financee's desath. Romance and love finds her in an unexpected way. One will have to read this novel to see if Grey is able to keep her new love! This novel would be good gor book club discussions.

some characters were one dimensional, not strongly developed; would like to have seen better character development,as many were quite predictable. Plot did have a few surprising twists.

Riddled with filthy language. Only read a few pages. That was enough.
