Felice Stevens is a prolific writer and After the Fire did not disappoint. Jordan and Luke each struggled with their own issues and insecurities. Both attempted the lone wolf characterization, and once they realized two was better than one, they ambled past their problems and filled the gaps of their lives.
Ms. Stevens consumed the pages of the story with angst, anxieties, and tumultuousness, as Jordan and Lucas strove to accept their past and forge into a better future. I liked each character for what he brought to the table and for their desire to make a better place in their respective lives- individually and as a couple.
The secondary characters added depth to the storyline and left unanswered questions, awaiting a book three in the Through Hell & Back series.
As a fan of Ms. Stevens, I’ve enjoyed all her work, and After the Fire reached this reader’s top ten list of the new year.
