After the Storm


Alexia “Lexi” Hanson moved across the country to rebuild her life after the attack that almost destroyed her. She enjoys the simple things in her beach cottage. Life is finally complete.

Noah Matthews is Rock & Roll’s hottest star and on top of the world. After years without a break he finds the solitude he craves at his beach house. Enjoying his early morning coffee, Noah is surprised to see his neighbor sneak into his garden and crawl around.

They never saw that fateful morning coming. Someone was watching them. Someone who thought Lexi belonged to him and would stop at nothing to have her.

Lives are changed forever when they meet amongst the blooms in his garden. Even when things seem darkest, there is always light After the Storm.


4 stars of amazing!! Alexia is a lost soul who finally has learned to heal and start her life over after being tortured and raped. Lexi finds peace and safety in  the beach house and finally feels like she has control of her life. Till Noah,the sexy rockstar, appears next door. Their connection is quick and undeniable but Lexi cant bring her self to let him in her safe life or can she? Loved loved this book!! Love the three little old ladies, they were hilarious! I hope I'm half as fun as they are. Noah..... talk about Swoon worthy how can you not fall in love with this sexy sweet talker..This book had me laughing, crying, scared and at the end of my seat dying to see what happens. This book is a perfect mixture of love, suspense and mystery. I did not know this book was gonna have me scared to leave my bed lol talk about a creeper, Anthony definitely scared the crap out of me. Once I started I could not stop. After the storm pulls you in and causes a storm with your emotions!!
