The Aftermath (The Hurricane, #2)eARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

Release Date: December 15th 2015

Publisher: Grand Central Publishing

When you’ve got nothing, you’ve got nothing to lose. But what happens when you have everything you ever wanted? You fight to keep it.

Cormac “the Hurricane” O’Connell’s star is on the rise. Billed as the most promising young boxer of his generation, his new career is taking him to places he never dreamed. But O’Connell only needs one thing in life: his wife. In her final year of college, Em cannot follow him around the world but together they make it work.

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. 

He couldn’t protect Em once before, but in the aftermath of the hurricane, he will make sure that never happens again.

My Opinion

I don't know what to say...

Really, I'm struggling to form sentences here that doesn't detail how hard I'm finding it to write anything.

Earlier this year I stated The Hurricane was one of the best books I've read in 2015. It takes a lot for me to fall in love with fighters because my standard is so high in them. I've read so many, but RJ has worked her way to near the top of my list. I fell in love with Con in The Hurricane almost as much as I love LP Dover's fighters, which are my favourite.

Therefore when I got the chance to read an ARC of The Aftermath I jumped around the room. I wasn't even worried this book wouldn't live up to the first...I knew it would.

Throughout The Aftermath I fell in love with Con all over again as I witnessed his thoughts, emotions, struggles, and love. Although a tough fighter, he's a guy with a soft heart and melts around Em. The love he had for her was believable and it makes you fall for him even more because it's obvious he only has eyes for her. His loyalty and almost worshipping of her is touching.

Moreover, the way Em returns it is great. Whilst you don't hear from Em's POV until the epilogue (wished she'd was in it a little more), I felt her pain and sadness, but also her love of Con. They're a perfect couple and their story continues to interest me.

Overall, a great continuation. I hope RJ plans on writing the other guys' stories, especially Tommy! I'd love to read about them. Both books are near the top of my list of favourite reads of the year. I can't recommend them enough.
