THE OTHER SIDE OF LATER by D.K. Hamilton is a heartfelt, emotional story about family, friendship, and the fear that can sometimes surround love.

Julia learned the hard way that you should never let anyone take control of your life, and even though she is happy now with her gorgeous little boy, her supportive family, and her hard-earned career, she knows that she will never let down her guard when it comes to the opposite sex. But one rainy afternoon soon sets Julia on a new path, where she has

I admit that I bought this book by accident, thinking I was buying a book by another indie writer I was following on Twitter. However, this turned out to be a happily-ever-after accident. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and would recommend it for anyone looking for a romance to read on a cold winter day.

Julia has trust issues resulting from her failed marriage. Although in a very successful marriage myself, I can identify with Julia's struggles to trust once again. After losing the trust

After a disaster of a marriage resulting in Carson, an energetic toddler boy, Julia hasn't been on a date for several years. Add the chance meeting of an old school friend, Drew, and The Other Side of Later is born.

The Other Side of Later is a feel-good, happily ever after romance. The flashbacks from Julia's past marriage made the storyline more interesting and I was intrigued as to what or who made her past marriage fail. I liked that there was another romance going on besides the main one. I

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for writing an honest review.

This book is a classic but complicated love story, which I really enjoyed. It revolves around the hectic life of single mom, Julia, who is juggling work and a young son on her own. She doesn’t have any time for love and also doesn’t feel like she needs it. She has shut herself off for so long that she doesn’t know how to feel when a guy from high school shows up into her life again, and he’s nothing like she remembers.

Julia is immediately likeable and relatable. While you don't know exactly what she's gone through until much later in the book, you get a sense of her strength right from the start. And how can you not fall for Drew? Seriously. He does everything right, and he sounds pretty nice to look at as well. I think the only thing I disliked about the book was lack of development with key side characters, Luke and Taylor. Though I hope that just means there will be a sequel.

Since this is my debut novel, I'm obviously a little bias so I won't be giving a rating or review. :)

Please visit my official website http://www.dkhamiltonauthor.com for frequent giveaways and posts about the inspiration for The Other Side of Later as well as updates and sneak peeks of the sequel as I write it.

Thanks for reading!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my page! I'm so excited my debut novel, The Other Side of Later, is now available on Amazon!

While I graduated from college with a degree in engineering, by the time I was in my late 20s, I discovered my real passion is writing. I wrote The Other Side of Later over the course of a couple years late at night, on weekends, and during any minute I could spare.

I've b
