What Happens After

 

screen-shot-2017-03-04-at-19-31-02What is the book about?

It was never supposed to happen. ‘We’ never should have happened.

He and I… Our constantly crossing paths changed the unthinkable to the inevitable. 
It was magical, exhilarating, and life defining… despicable, and it ruined everything.

It destroyed me.
It destroyed us.
He and I is what happened before.
And everything else is what happened after…

Is it a Series?

Yes, at the back of the book it mentioned another story from a different character’s point of view.

How easy is it to read?

Very.


Karen’s Book Buzz Review

I can’t remember where I saw this book, so it was possibly at a book event. I found the book cover very alluring.

Portia Moore is excellent at writing emotions. I really loved this story and found it extremely gripping. It is a love triangle and the action moves between the past where the main characters were all still in high school, to the present day, and things come back to haunt them.

It’s clever in the way it was written starting with a happy marriage between Gwen and William until Gwen finds out William had an affair 8 years ago and has a daughter, something she had been unable to give him.

What’s worse is it with Lisa, their son Chris’s best friend and Gwen knew as a little girl and watched her grow up.

The action moves between all three, Gwen, William and Lisa as the main characters and we see things from their point of view. Not only that but the story of how Gwen and William first got together is told. That’s a story in itself and of course, not without drama.


And the Rest

Not many books make me gasp out loud, but there is a scene in the book where Chris comes in and find his dad and his best friend making out in the kitchen. Although the reader knows this is what will happen, it is a shock when it comes.

There was one instance where Chris confronts Lisa, it’s a great scene. He is both, as one would expect, disgusted with her and his dad. So much so that he discards the name his dad gave him when he was adopted, instead, he wanted to be known as Cal. The scene seemed significant as if it was leading up to something as if the name Cal meant something, but nothing further was mentioned about it.
