4 STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

*I did not read book one*

This was an emotional read for me. The subject matter, the writing, the characters were all moving and I was constantly in a state of emotion (sad, happy, frustrated, laughing) throughout the book.

Being inside Sebastian's head and thoughts was so moving. I felt for him. I wanted to fix things for him (I hated Ava and what she did to him!) but most of all I wanted him to see himself the way I did. His struggles and pain were so real but he was so strong.

Oh... My... Gosh...

I read Look After Me straight after reading Look After You. I'm so glad I did. Now I just wish I had book 3!! *stares at Elena* (is it finished yet? how about now?) ;)

In Look After Me we get to see and experience Sebastian's life.

We join Sebastian as he leaves rehab; after falling back into old habits of taking Cocaine.

I was kindly given an ARC of this book in return for an honest review.
If you have ever had your heart broken or supported an addict then you will instantly connect with Sebastian. I did on both counts.
The book opens on Sebastian fresh out of rehab after breaking under the strain of his heartache inflicted by Ava leaving him for Dr Bailey. You literally feel his heartache and his anger at their betrayal which is all credit to Elena Mathews great writing

This is Sebastian and Addison story. Again have mixed feelings about this one . I liked Sebastian character and felt bad for him in previous book but in this book he was so indecisive and his behavior with Addison was totally unacceptable. Ava was gone from his life and her choice but Sebastian was still stuck in past and this vicious cycle of blame and anger which was frustrating and at times quite annoying. I left sorry for him and bad for him but in this story I wanted someone to knock some s ...more

Loved Sebastian and Addison!!!!!!!!

I really liked this book alot. I loved the real emotion that Sebastian had and his heartbreak was so real!!!!! Addison was so positive and such a great fit for Sebastian. their story was real and made so much sense. I found that I started hating Ava and Ashton right along with Sebastian. this was incredible writing!!!

Emotional love story

I loved Sebastian in the first book. He is all about loyalty and love. And when loyalty and love is shot to he11, he loses his footing. I loved Addison and her natural way to give her love. she was no effect for Sebastian.

I was given this ARC in return for a honest review.

This is the second book in the Look After You series, however it gives the reader enough backstory that this could be read as a standalone book. I would also like to say that I did not read the first book and was somewhat hesitant reading book 2. However I am so glad that I did.

Our story starts with Sebastian, a Army Vet who came home from Afghanistan and found out that his fiancée and mother of this child, fell in love with another man. Not j

I really enjoyed this book. I was so much more emotionally driven than the first one. being inside of Sebastian's head was a rollercoaster ride.
the characters and story were fabulous.

Yes I didn't agree with some of his actions-like getting drunk after being turned down by Ava.. but you aren't meant to agree with all their actions and I was(happily) frustrated at points as well as sad, happy and filled with loved.

4 ½ stars, Gifted for an Honest Review

“This here is you crawling through the darkness. But I can see the light approaching. You just have to fight a little harder to get there.”

This is written differently, it feels different from Look After You and I imagine that this is intentional as the subject matter is not the same, and neither is the narration. This is male POV therefore feels harsher, less emotional, despite the emotion being in every stroke of word that Elena writes. It’s a hard book to

I was eagerly awaiting this arriving on my kindle and it didn't disappoint. After the brilliant 'Look After You' this follow on is from Sebestian's POV. The man who gave up his life in the army, to come back to his family, only to find his fiancé in the arms of another man. I loved Sebastian in the first book but seeing his tortuous journey from the heartbreak he's suffered and his recovery makes me love him all the more.

After reading Look After You, I was excited to read Look After Me.

I knew from the very first page that Sebastian was going to break my heart. And he did! Look After Me is full of pain, heartache, addiction & hope.

From the first few pages.. I felt myself hating Ava! Even though I saw what she went through in Look After You.. I still hated her! How could she just cheat on him while hes fighting in the war? Really?!

He loves her, but wants to hate her. The only reason he even is around her is because they have a daughter together -- Lily-Mai -- and he is committed to being in Lily-Mai’s life.

I will admit when I got this book I thought I knew what I was gonna get, what kind of story would be in the pages but it blew all that out of the water! I love when you go into a book expecting one thing and you get something completely different.
What I expected was a story of love gone wrong, a man who lost a lot in his life and found it hard. What I actually got was the story of one mans soul destroying life that was saved by the one thing he didn't

How far can you go to let the unbearable pain of having your heart ripped out of your chest by the love of your life take you? How long will you let this pain take control of your life and hit rock bottom?

Sebastian thought he had the best life ever, retiring from the ARMY and make a life with the woman that owned his heart and his baby girl, but when his face to face to the ugly truth his fiancee has cheated on him and has moved on his world comes crushing down and he's facing his poison that wi

One of the only things I liked about book 1 was Sebastian, so I was happy for his book.

If you want the rainbow you have to deal with the rain....and deal with the rain, he did. I loved this book, but man my fucking heart broke for Sebastian. I'm glad he finally gets his happily every after, though.

Addison is a great heroine, much better than Ava's sorry ass. I love that she holds her own, but is caring and sweet; she really is selfless. Ava states Ashton is selfless in book one, but I thought h

Book 2 in the look after you series.

This is Sabastian's story...

In book 1 I felt so sorry for Sabastian, when the love of his life cheated on him and left him for another man, while he was fighting for his country in Afghanistan.

It was a really heart breaking read.

This book was just as emotional, if not more as we get to read what is going on in Sabastian's mind and understand the heartbreak he is going through.

This novel has all the feels - laughing, crying, happy, sad and swooning.

At the end of book 1 I felt so bad for Sebastion. This one was just as emotional as the first one was. We get a look into Sebastian's mind and we see just what kind of pain and hell he is going through. He is dealing with his break up, drug addiction and learning how to be a father. When he meets Addison, he is at his lowest. She helps him deal with his issues, they develop a strong friendship. As time goes on they develop stronge

I will be honest here, I enjoyed this book a lot more than book 1, Look After You.

This is Sebastian's story after the fallout from his break up from Ava. He is devastated, as anyone who has ever gone through a break up will understand, but he chooses a path which leads him towards self destruction.

Sebastian needs help and he finds it in the form of Addison, his drug counsellor. A mutual attraction develops, but both Sebastian and Addison have baggage which prevents either of them from totally op

I swear on all that is holy I loved Sebastian, he is one steaming hot, broody, inspiring man. I loved the thorough understand of a man fighting an addiction, trying to step up to the mark as a dad and become the man he knows is he when he is carrying so much emotional baggage. Plus fighting an addiction to his ex, Ava. The pain in this man is so raw on the page it is palpable.
