Just when everything they ever wanted is on the horizon, the past resurfaces to haunt them and O’Connell realizes that justice might not be a part of his happy ever after.

5 / 5 Stars
And the drama continues…
Beginning where The Hurricane left off (my review), Emily and O’Connell are trying to enjoy their new married life and forget their rough pasts. Their love for each other is fierce and O’Connell would do anything to keep Em safe and happy. It’s a tough job when Em’s past is still out there haunting them and O’Connell needs to train for a big fight. But O’Connell will do everything in his power to make sure Em’s demons are kept at bay.
I don’t think R.J. Prescott could have wrapped up Emily and O’Connell’s story in any other way. It was perfect.
I loved reading The Aftermath through O’Connell’s point of view. His feelings were so raw, loving and protective. With everything they went through, he had her back and she had his. It was also fun to get to be in his head when other guys just looked at Em.
We didn’t get to hear Em’s thoughts in this one, but I loved reading about her through O’Connell’s thoughts. She continued to gain strength and confidence through his love. I hurt for her past and was happy with the resolution she received.
I can’t wait to see what comes next for the Hurricane family. There’s so many great characters and I can’t wait to read their stories!
