It's been forever since the last time I wrote a review, so bear with me while I clean away some of the spiderwebs and try to organize my thoughts.

While this, most likely, isn't a book I would read more than once, I still found it pretty enjoyable. Let's break it down.


I had to grow accustomed and get into the writing style. There was an overabundance of adjectives and adverbs (for my liking). Also, the dual POV was extremely muddy. Chapters would start from one character's point of view, only

So nice, gentle love story, I enjoyed reading every part. Sophie and Asher are a lovely couple, designed to be together. You can easily follow the way they fall in love, their understanding for problems they face, support for each other...

This small-town romance left me wanting reading it again.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.

I seriously loved this book so much! I think romance books should be an easy, entertaining, and binge worthy read. Romance books are typically my favorite form of escape reading when I get stressed out. This book had all of these aspects and was a total joy to read!

Best friends Sophie and Pippa are done with college and moving back to Pippas home town of Foothills Washington to start the rest of their lives. Pippa is getting married to her high school sweetheart and will need Sophies calming,

Oh I loved this one. It was my first book from this author but it won't be my last.

The Characters were well-developed and the theme of PTSD was well caught up.

Archer has returned home from the Navy and his sister won't let him be friends with Sophie because he normally cheats on women. And they give up the friendship to Pippa. But Sophie won't?

It's a relaxing read with many feelings transported by a very good and interesting style that never gets you bored.

There aren't a lot of intimate scenes

Superb writing elevates this heartfelt romance!

I was surprised at how quickly the story made me understand exactly why it was so important to Pippa that her friend not date her brother. The author has a gift for imbuing the characters with emotional depth in a manner defined by simplicity and compassion. I loved the sweetness of the growing friendship between Asher and Sophie, their love for Pippa overriding their intense chemistry. And the chemistry was there right from the start fairly

I really enjoyed this book, a lovely story with likeable characters. It is the first Carrie Thorne book that I have read but hopefully it won't be the last.

"Please don't sleep with my brother", that was the heartfelt plea from Pippa Sutherland to her best friend Sophie Jones.

Sophie was alone in the world except for a dysfunctional aunt so she and Pippa were heading to Foothills, Pippa's home town where Sophie has always been made welcome by Pippa's family.

Both of these individuals have had tragedy in their past. Asher is still recovering from a mission gone bad, suffering from PTSD and not sure what hell do with his

It Takes The Right Person To Find Peace:
By Korkoi -

I really loved reading this book and I couldnt put it down once I started. It was really easy to fall in love with all the characters and the storyline. Asher was trying to recover from PTSD, after leaving the Navy and it made him into an introvert. Sophie was orphaned at a young age and suffered at the hands of her auntie. The electrical current between Asher and Sophie when they meet for the first time is enough to light up the entire State of

4 * ARC Review Secret Lovers with a SEAL
This is the first book I have read by this author and I was glad to be introduced to her by the ARC from Hidden Gems. Although it had elements of other books, best friends brother, SEAL returning from service, and yet the way this author takes the story makes it more than those clichés. It is the story of Sophie and Asher, where she has just moved in with his family after graduate school, and to help his sister as she finalize her wedding and start her

I really enjoyed this book. It was my first book by the author and enjoyed her writing style, its in different characters POV but has a great flow to it all with timing, plot, the voice you want to hear. It does have F-bombs and is steamy, which I enjoy as its truly what the person is thinking and doing, Im guessing but a SEAL is not going to say gosh darn so that was nice. I really loved the two leads in this book and their real experience in this situation with her BFF and little sister ...more

One of my favorite Goodreads features is reviewing my own books... weird, but fun!
As always, of course I loved it and want to read it over and over again, or it wouldn't have been published!

This was a fun one. A change of pace from the suspenseful touch in the Beachside series. The Foothills series, starting with All the Days After, is more about people overcoming a personal challenge and finding themselves in the serene Cascade Foothills (a few hours outside of Seattle).

Asher is very flawed,

I volunteered to read this ARC for an honest review. I really enjoyed this story about Asher and Sophie. She and her best friend Pippa are moving back to Foothills to prep for Pippa's wedding and getting ready to start her career as an accountant. What she doesn't expect is to finally meet Pippa's brother Archer and being drawn to him. Archer was a Navy seal and is now transitioning back to the civilian world. There are sparks from the first meeting but both promised Pippa they wouldn't seek ...more

All the Days After has hands down been one of the best book Ive read by a new author. Gah, I absolutely loved this sexy and sweet, hilarious, swoon worthy and beyond entertaining romantic story. I couldnt put it down nor did I want to. The characters are well developed and have depth that you feel throughout the story. These characters where real, flawed, likeable and relatable too. It had everything you need in a fabulous romance story - romance, drama, comedy, gorgeous man, sweet and sexy ...more

Her roommate Sophie has been a frequent visitor to Pippa's home, but always when Archer was not present.

I greatly enjoyed this story from new to me author Carrie Thorne. I'm very glad she took a step away from her previous romantic suspense novels, as those aren't my jam. This book had developed characters, that we got to see the friendship and romance grow and develop over 3 weeks. While you knew that their would be some confrontations, the suspense was built nicely of "when will the shoe drop". I found it amusing who realized what was happening and a who didn't. There was a nice touch of humour ...more

This was a lovely story about starting over and self discovery with a dash of finding the perfect partner in life. I appreciated that it touched topics like transitioning from military life to civilian life and abuse were incorporated (not to mention having it in a small town setting made it all the more interesting). I thought at first that with the overwhelming amount of issues of each of the characters, somehow it would not really be an enjoyable read. I was wrong though. It truly showed how ...more

Sophie Jones has worked hard to get her life together after a rough start after the death of her mother and living with her money-grubbing aunt. She's getting ready to settle into her new job in Foothills, Washington -- while preparing for her best friends wedding.

Home from the Navy, former SEAL Asher Sutherland is not the guy he used to be, but not sure who he is now. He knows he wants his sister's best friend Sophie -- but is also aware of all the pain he's caused his sister because of

I found this book amazing with great word building making me feel apart of the story and watching it unfold in front of me. A definite must read for any fan and I can't wait to read more from this author!!!

I loved this book. Pippa and Sophie are room mates. When college is over, Sophie goes to stay with Pippa's family for a while to look for a job and help Pippa with her wedding. Pippa's brother just got home from war. He has slept with all Pippa's friends over the years and Pippa forbids him to sleep with Sophie. So will he do as she asks? So much love in this book and a lot of steaminess. I loved it.

I received a copy of this free book in exchange for an honest review. This is the first tine I have read something by this author and was very pleased with a well written book. The characters were realistic and well developed with a clear and entertaining plot. There was only a couple small editing errors that did not take away from the story. I differently recommend this story and will read other books by her.

This is the first book I have read by this author. It is also the start of a new series. Asher, a former Navy Seal and womanizer, meets Sophie, an accountant. The author did a good job of making the characters relatable. The characters have chemistry but have to overcome struggles in order to be together. I can't wait for some of the other stories. I voluntarily received an ARC of this book from Book Sirens and this is my opinion.

All the Days After is the first book in the Foothills Romance Series and I really enjoyed it.

I enjoyed the characters and that they at least tried to keep their relationship from Pippa so that she wouldn't be upset before her wedding. The storyline is well written and engaging, with humour, personal challenges, drama, and romance. The author did a good job of handling Asher's PTSD.

I read and reviewed this book with no obligation.

The blending of Asher and Sophia building friendship as they help with Pippas wedding is ingenious. The characters are inspiring and lovable.

I enjoyed reading this! The characters were likeable and had great chemistry (but what romance doesnt?). Its nice to have both characters POV, but sometimes it seemed to flip when I didnt want it to! I recommend this one to anyone who likes quick romantic reads (and lots of sexual tension) as it only took a few days once I actually got started.

I enjoyed every part of this story. Sophie and Asher felt like they were destined to be together. This is the first book in a new series and I can hardly wait for the next. I felt connected to the characters and they just fit so well together. It seemed like fate that Sophie and Asher find each other. The book hit all the emotions and left me wanting to come back to Foothills! I received an advance copy and am voluntarily leaving an honest review.

I get that it is complicated to have your best friend and your brother be together, I found myself reacting emotionally in this story. I could understand all of the characters point of view and the author did a good job portraying the complicated emotions that can come when prohibitions that do not need to be are introduced into the mix. I liked Asher and Sophie and I liked their story and how they became a them despite the complications. Good story.
