What could be more terrifying than falling in love with the person who is your good place? Maybe realizing just a smidge too late that there can be dire consequences to becoming your best friend’s lover.

The lives of Keir Stevens and Selene Georgiou serendipitously collide mid-span on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, one jarring step ahead of fate. He’s a temporary transplant from Seattle; she’s facing the biggest career opportunity of her life. They have no notion of the common thread that connects them.

As they come to discover they share a similar adversity, their relationship evolves from a fun and frivolous infatuation with nowhere to go into a true friendship with sincerity, humor, and respect at its heart.

It’s awfully hard not to fall in love with that – even if you’re pretty darn certain you shouldn’t.

But when love and friendship suffer their own devastating collision – their interests brutally conflicting – the consequences of blurring the lines between the two suddenly become real. In the end, which one will be the stronger? And more importantly, can either survive?

AFTER EFFECTS is a standalone dual POV adult contemporary romance about the things we choose in life out of all the things that are beyond our choosing – a tale of love and friendship, of time and how we spend it, and of the inner wars that ultimately show us what really matters.

This is book three in the Ripple Effect Series, and this time we have Selene’s story. If you have read the first two books in the series you would have already met Selene. If you haven’t this can be read as a standalone. Can you imagine meeting the love of your life by running your car into the rear of his truck? Well that’s what happens when Selene is putting on her mascara and accidently drives into the back of his food truck. Selene is lucky enough to meet Keir who sounded moody but is a real sweetheart, I fell for Keir very early on. When they meet both are going through heartache.

This about a couple who struggle when their lives take them to different places. This a beautiful romance and it felt so realistic , but very emotional. This is told in dual narration so we really understand how both Selene and Keir really feel. I really enjoyed this book and I couldn’t help cheering Selene and Keir on their happily ever after. This is a beautiful and moving story and I for one am happy to have discovered another author to read.

    Hi Cheryl, I am so happy you enjoyed Aftereffects and glad you loved these characters as much as I do! It has always been a central part of my writing style to create characters who view and react to the world in a very real way, and who reflect life’s experiences honestly. Thank you so much for taking the time to read and review Aftereffects. I’m thrilled to have had you on my launch tour! And if you have a chance, I’d be so appreciative to have you post your review to Goodreads, Amazon, and/or anywhere you like. Every review is so important to indie authors like me. Warm regards, LJ
