A short story sequel to the bestselling romcom You Had Me At Hello!
In You Had Me At Hello, the one who got away came back… but what happened next?
Together, apart and then back together again, Rachel and Ben had a rollercoaster ride to get here. But now happily in love and partners in crime once more, it feels like it’s all been worth it.
But when a face from the past re...more
I'd forgotten how much I enjoyed this author's work, she has a genuinely original voice, and her character observations are strikingly honest.
It was a short read with zero smut (sadly) but plenty of banter, wit and warm feels balanced with some angst. It was about an hour's read and even though I'd forgotten most of the detail of the first book, there were enough prompts t ...more
Absolute perfection. I'll take a new novel whenever it's ready, please and thank you :)
BEN AND RACHEL ARE MY EVERYTHING. I was torn in some gruesome knots during this and then I was absolute mush reading that ending, the flashback / mention to that very first scene of You had me at Hello. I'm dead!
''Want to know something ridiculous?'
Ben leans in. 'I meant it the first time.'
Honestly I can't breathe at how real Mhairi's characters are, how they mark my heart and leave me longing for their company forever. I could have read 1000 more pages of them... Ben feeding their ca ...more
This little story was so sweet and pulled me into the life of Rachel and Ben. Now I want to know the back story, so of course I will be reading You Had Me At Hello. I felt invested in making sure all things surrounding them went well.
The whole story was fun and light and left me wanting more!
For readers that want to read this one, make sure you read the first book beforehand. I feel like you're not lost per say, but you need to the whole story o ...more
I was dying to know what was next for Ben and Rachel after I last few lines of YOU HAD ME AT HELLO. If you were in the same boat as me, AFTER HELLO gives you a little of what you want. And the best part is that it’s FREE (as of the time of posting this review).
Flash forward two years later, Ben and Rachel are homeowners. They’re not married and enjoying being together. Rachel really wants to take that next step but does Ben?
There was a ...more
I get the feeling I have read about this couple before? Going to scope that now.
A fun, quick read following Rachel and Ben from You Had Me at Hello. I love when authors give readers a sneak peek into the “after” the HEA and what’s happening in the character’s lives. This could have worked as an epilogue in the original book but it was a freebie so I picked it up.
I love the author’s writing style and am now in the process of reading her backlist :)
This is a couple that I wish we could see over and over again ❤️
This novella had me laughing out loud at some parts and even made my nose tingle and my eyes water a bit when the couple were at odds surprisingly!
I can't get enough of them and only wished the story was soooo much longer! I love how Mhairi is able to make the love between the two so real with their self-analysis of ...more
Mhairi's books bring a whole heap of ...more
Mhairi makes me laugh, her humor is quite unique. was one of my favorite books with its mix of New Adult back love story and Adult "second chance" feel... and it was nice to have a little peek at what happens after happily ever after and to meet again some favorite characters. It was like taking a coffee with an old friend, pleasant, comforting, and hilarious as it is that friend who always makes jokes :) ...more
Following on from You Had Me at Hello, which I loved, this short read is lovely - seeing their relationship past the ending of the last book. Really enjoyed delving into their world again.
It was an okay follow-up to You Had Me at Hello. Necessary? No. It’s a quick catch up on the happenings and going-ons of Ben and Rachel’s life together after Ben gets divorced. I say the follow up was unnecessary because it didn’t bring anything new to the table in regards to Ben and Rachel’s story. I could have guessed they were second thinking the other when it came to similar situations as if they were repeating their past mistakes even though everything ...more
So far I have enjoyed everything I've read by Mhairi McFarlane.
It could be because this was writen 4 years after YHMAH, but the characters of Rachel and Ben seemed a tad removed from what we grew to love orginally. Cute ending though.
After Hello is the epilogue to You Had Me at Hello, McFarlane's first novel. At first I was worried that I wouldn't remember the characters well enough to really enjoy After Hello, but I needn't have worried; McFarlane's characters are so memorable and she does such a good job of reminded you of each, without info-dumping on you, that the I wa ...more
