Oh my goodness – I am crushed. 

Bring on the angst, intensely rollercoaster of emotions my furry friends because this one is a flipping doosey. What always makes for a good emotional read? Amazing characters with such crippling emotions. Ergo: After the End.

And speaking of these alluring, heavily emotional characters… oh my lanta give me all the feels. I don’t know what parts tugged at my speckled heart more, Lincoln punishing himself for the past years, struggling internal for his decisions, or Tilly, downing personality where it is almost as if the turmoil of her brothers’ accident has turned her into an entirely different more emotionally crippled individual. Truly just powerfully haunting and yet beautiful. 

I liked seeing Linc and Tilly evolve. They had such a depth that was honestly untouchable. Getting glimpses of their history, the conflicts of forgiving, moving forward really hovered over the both of them. Something I really also enjoyed that really aided in the plot was that there was always a type of trust, an attraction. And although I really did love their slow build of recreating their friendship and ultimately a romance was that there was a drawn out drag feel – at times I felt it was too much back and forth, too much cowering, I understand the reasoning, but for me I felt some aspects of the slow rebuild to their dynamics was a bit over-played. 

But honestly, the slow drag was well worth the wait. Tilly and Linc were amazing together. Still feeling the swoonage. I think the story really gripped me the most because I honestly felt a connection to both characters. They had such a magnificent, beautifully developed depth that made them believable, their struggles a realty for the readers. 

Overall, I really enjoyed the emotional tug-war with After the End. This was such a beautiful story, once I got started I honestly couldn’t put it down. Tilly and Lincoln’s story was just perfection. Everything from the romantic tugs, the push and pull of emotional struggles, both from rekindling their lost friendship as well as their internal struggles, all the way down to the pure swoonage that bled from the pages. 

I absolutely adored it, start to finish. Natasha is quickly becoming a personal favorite author!
