Gorgeous. Sweet. Funny. He made me feel things that I’ve never felt before. In just one short week over Spring Break, I began to fall in love. That is until it all fell apart. Now, here I am, three years later and I’ve moved on, at least that’s what I told myself until he came crashing back into my life. Things have changed.

This book wasn’t bad, but I expected more connection between the characters.

Who knew that angry, nasty, immature Molly would end up becoming Lani’s biggest ally and defender once push came to shove? Not me, that’s for sure! After all, she was so nasty in the beginning, but she proved that the pain of knowing that she tossed her best friend out on her ear makes for an interesting turnabout in her attitude.

Lani has raised her daughter, Sophie, on her own without Damon because he couldn’t be bothered responding to her pleas for a chance to talk years ago. Imagine both Lan

Let me begin stating I really did enjoy this story. It was a great story, but was all over the place & needed more development. So much potential & fell short is truly the best way to describe it. I knew going in it was a taboo or borderline taboo, but I enjoyed that part of the story a lot. Damon was so immature & I just couldn’t like his character like I wanted. I didn’t like how he was 0 to everything so quickly. Told in dual POV.

Evan has always been one of my favorite authors from day #1. A taboo, twists and turns, beautiful, older man, younger woman book. My best friend's Dad, to be exact type of book but, so good.

This book is rollercoaster of emotions. Lani never intended to fall for her best friend's dad. When everything is exposed, hearts are broken and friendships are ruined. This book will have you feeling everything and this author did an amazing job on this book. I hope everyone gets a chance to read this.

Okay so this book has all the feels so get ready to cry and fall in love with a man that you will both want to beat the crap out of and swoon over. This is an age gap romance with Damon being 20 years older than out Lani at 20.
An instant attraction, that unfurls in the most unexpected way. Evan Grace, shows how relationships that have such large age gaps suffer and struggle to be strong. How it can affect others and destroy bonds. There are a lot of topics covered in this book that will have yo

This book gave me serious whiplash, but not necessarily in a bad way. I started out not really liking Lani. Although I couldn't pinpoint exactly why, she seemed immature (duh, she's a college kid) and a little too timid for an affair with an older man. After Sophie is born she's like another person (another duh, parenthood does that), protective and completely in love with her daughter. Molly was just as immature in the beginning, if not more. I get being upset at finding your dad involved with ...more

After We Met was a great read. It had a my emotions all over the place. I loved the taboo element of Lani falling for best friend’s dad, Damon. They met when Molly took Lani with her on spring break. He made Lani feel special and things that no one ever had before. She was falling for him, hard and fast. Until the day it all fell apart. Three years later and Lani thought she had moved on but what happens when he walks back into her life? This is where this story really takes off.

For me this was a book about love and loss and then love again, how could you not love a second/third chance romance. what do you do when you go on vacation with your best friend and fall inlove with her father, both Lani and Damen knew it would not end well, but how you not fall head over heals with someone you are so attracted to. For lani she knew the risk but was willing to take it. Damen wasn't looking for anything serious, just a night or two of fun, or will fate have a way of screwing it ...more

This is Lani and Damon’s story. Lani is with her best friend when she meets her dad and Lani falls hard. The have a small affair that lasts really only a few days before he sends her on her way. Now years later they meet and they both have secrets. He moved on but she has his daughter. When all the secrets come out Lani walks away. Can Damon get her back? Or will he lose not only Lani

Okay here I go....I strongly dislike Damon!!! There I said it. This man made 18 year old immature boy's decisions look smarter. Really, at one point I wanted to throw my kindle AND throat punch the guy.......and that is why this is getting 5 stars for me.

I loved Lani and how she was doing the best that she could with the hand she'd been dealt. After the way her supposed best friend and Damon treated her she could have been mad at the world and made different choices than she did. Her mom Lisa w

I thought After We met was a good story it was one of those stories that drew me in this would be one the many stories I read by Evan Grace and I can't wait to read more . But at times it did bug me with how characters reacted to certain situations to we were I was pretty annoyed . Usually I'm not a fan of friends hot dad kinda love story but this was good . It did take me some time to connect to the hero like I understand why he handled things the way he did but still a bit irritating . I liked ...more

What do you do when you fall in love with your best friends dad while on vacation? You hope your best friend doesn’t find out!

Unfortunately for Lani and Damon fate wasn’t on their side. When Molly Lanis best friend and Damon’s daughter find them together she totally turns on Lani and any hope that Damon would stand up to Molly goes out the window when he calls Lani an Uber and sends her home without a second thought. But Damon left Lani with more than a broken heart.

Lani goes on spring break with her best friend, Molly, and falls in love with Molly's father, Damon, while there. They have a whirlwind romance, and everything blows up when Molly finds out and Damon sends her home. Then, we pick up three years later, with Damon and Molly entering back into Lani’s life, and her holding a pretty huge secret.

I really wished I would have liked it better, but it was just an okay read for me. The writing was good and the storyline was entertaining. But, I didn’t con

Going into this story, it was not what I expected from reading the blurb but oh what a sweet surprise it was! I loved the storyline and the concept and how it mended your heart in the long run. You cannot help who you fall in love with and that happens to Damon and Lani. Even though it wasn’t right in some aspects, you cannot control that. Their passion was amazing. But that knife in the heart man. I was so upset for Lani. I felt it to my core. I wanted to throw things at both Damon and Molly bu ...more

Damon and Lani's story was SO. GOOD!!!!
I honestly don't know where to start. This book really had me all over the place. I was angry at Molly and Damon, felt terrible for Lani loved Lisa. Tony had me thinking a lot cause of some of his REALLY bad and then great choices.
But Sophie? That little girl mad that emotional ride worth EVERYTHING!!!!

Do not make plans because this is a story that you will read in one afternoon or evening. I started reading and next thing I knew several hours had passed. Lani and Damon’s story pack some emotional punches that are a mix between what the heck and hot and steamy. Highly recommended second chance romance. I loved every minute of this story and hope that everyone gets a chance to read it.

I loved Lani and Damon. I first read a part of their story in an anthology and was very happy to get part 2 of their story. The chemistry was off the charts and although there’s a little drama it’s not over the top. This was a great age-gap read.

I really struggle with this book. Not getting through it because I devoured it like I hadn’t had water in weeks but with my feelings.

I don’t ever truly feel that Damon is 100% accepting of how deeply he hurt Lani. I don’t ever feel like he puts her first. I wanted him to make that extra leap and show Lani that he won’t let anyone make his decisions for him or influence him.

At the end of the book I questioned will he put Lani first in the future. This was hard because I wanted to fall in love w

This book will take you you on a journey full of twists, turns, moments that will have you screaming at your kindle, and at the end leave you wanting you to read it all over again. Good story with characters that you both hate and love, older man younger woman.

I usually don’t enjoy this type of story line, but I have loved all the books this author has written so I gave this story a chance and I loved it. The relationship these characters had drew me in immediate and made this book hard to put down. This is definitely a must read.

A good book. Enjoyed reading Lani and Damon’s story. He is a much older and she’s his daughter BFF. Sparks fly between the two of them. This is a contemporary second chance romance.
