This book was A-dorable (I have been over prononuncing my As all day thanks to this book)! It was seriously a cute story. I liked the characters and the story line. The only problem I had was it drug out in some parts more than I cared for and Connor need a good hit. I was hoping someone would have hit him to get him in gear.Over all, I liked this one.
Another wonderful story by Monica Alexander! She is an amazing author. As a reader you easily fall into the relationships of her characters, and that is the kind of reading that I crave and can go for months without finding. Great story and I adored the characters.....fantastic job. Please keep writing! :)
I loved how everything wasn't so rushed between the two main characters!It had a great story line =).

It's more of a love it or hate it book. Unfortunately for me, this is one of those books I want can't keep myself from, but so want to get rid of as well. I am not sure whether or not I enjoyed it as much as I should. I think you could blame my sudden infatuations for cowboys, horses, ranches, and month long trips with the brother of your betrothed and end up falling in love with him instead. Or just that I've grown up and outgrown YA books.

I personally liked Abby. Because she was outspoken and...more
This book was simply amazing. Monica knows how to pull on the good ol' heartstrings. ,3
Loved this book to bits and pieces!

There were times when I had wanted to hit Connor (boy needs to get his head straight) as well as Abby (the devotion of this girl amazed me) on the head, but from the beginning, ever since Connor's first ex was mentioned, I already had a feeling that he thought Abby would have been the one capable of holding (and breaking) his fragile heart, so I guess I forgive him for that.

This is my third book by Monica and it did not disapoint. Though coming off of Fairytales and Castles which were my all time favorites was tough. Not in a bad way. I loved the character development in Aftrshocks as well as the story. I think I was just anxious for Connor and Abby to be together sooner so the waiting was killing me. I love the happy parts...
And Alexis! wow! I always tell my 13 year old daughter "The mean girls always get hit by the bus in the end".
I recommend this book as a MUST...more

I loved Connor and Abby's chemistry, they were drawn to each other from the start. Yes there were times I wanted to slap Connor and tell him, HELLO, what the hell are doing?? But luckily he came to senses and listened to what his heart truly wanted. Connor's little brother Jordan was so freaking funny and I loved when he had his "date" with Abby to the movies. Wyatt was wonderful and he was a great friend for Abby. That Alexis chick, I wanted to bitch slap her to next Tuesday. What a horrible wh...more
The description sounded pretty good, so I took a chance on this book and I am really glad I did. Enjoyed the witty banter, relationships with the characters were fun and the delightful story kept me entertained throughout the book. With great main characters and a quirky supporting cast that will keep you laughing, and a few unfortunate incidents that show you just how real life is. If you're looking for a new book to read you should check this one out!
I love Connor! Such a great guy! Except there were some instances where I wanted to hake him and slap him around so he could open his eyes and see how horrible Alexis was. That girl was vindictive and I am glad I never ha a run in with a girl like her when I was in high school.

Great story and if you ate wondering if you should read this, then take a chance and get lost in this book :)

I really did not know what to expect with this book, but I really, really liked it. I thought the character and plot development were top notch. Even though I wanted to sometimes hit Connor over the head for being stupid he was a very likable hero and Abby was adorable and sweet. I loved the ending, and I will be reading more from Ms. Alexander!

I was a little hesitant reading Aftershocks(came up as a suggested read), I didn't really know much about the author, but wanted a fast summer read. This definitely fulfilled this need. I couldn't put it down, a lot of ups and downs and twists and turns, but is a great read. I have a new favorite. Can't wait to read more by Monica Alexander.
I really liked this book.
I didn't know what to expect,but i was happily surprised.
A solid 4 stars and i will be looking forward to reading more of this author.

This is a mature YA book,that deals with a lot of nowaday problems and it has some interesting twists.
Definitely a must read
This book reminded of the book "Anna and the French kiss". I kinda think that they have the more or less the same plot minus the pregnancy thingy.
i loved the Anna's book and also liked this one. It might seems long but it was actually worthy. There were some heart-wrenching moments as well
How has this fantastic author passed me by. I dont often write reviews but I have just finished my 4th book of hers and can hardly put my nook down. I need sleep.
