After I Fall by Jessica Scott

Author: Jessica Scott
Date of publication: March 2017

Her entire life has been a lie. Being with Eli is the most honest thing she’s ever done. 

Parker Hauser lives the perfect life and knows exactly where she's been and where she's going. Parker has to be perfect. Perfect grades, perfect body, perfect life. 

Until she meets Eli Winter. 

Eli throws her entire life into chaos when he denies her the one thing she wants from him. 

One chance encounter stokes her desire for the man who refused to touch her and left her questioning everything. 

When Parker tries to help his new business, the spotlight turns on Eli's military record. And the war he's tried to forget may  destroy them both.

After I Fall is the third in the Falling series.  I have really been a fan of this series and this one makes a great addition.  It definitely can be read as a stand alone, so if you are new to the series with this one, you won't be missing anything.  This is Parker and Eli's story.  I have been waiting for Eli's story because I was intrigued by him in the previous book.

Ms. Scott always knows how to get right to the heart of her characters.  My heart was just breaking for Parker throughout this book.  I can't imagine what it is like to feel helpless and trapped in a life you don't want.  I was so rooting for her to break free and to realize she was strong enough to do it.  I loved her and Eli together.  The only thing I wish was that I had gotten more of Eli's background. I wanted to get to know him more than I did. Essentially, I wish this story was longer because I loved it so much.

I definitely recommend this one.  Fans of this author won't be disappointed.  I also know new readers will soon discover a new favorite author.  I can;t wait to see what is next.
