Two broken souls whose parts made one beautiful whole
In some ways this was a very typical contemporary romance and yet through good writing and some wonderful characters this had very unique feel. This is an author who I know writes solid love stories with likeable and believable characters. I loved the sound of this book from the blurb, who can resist a damaged military hero? Or a frenemies-to-lovers story?

Wes is a former soldier, silently struggling to forget the horrors he has experienced and filled with guilt. Whitney is an aspiring actress, determined to maintain a positive attitude and to always make the best of what life brings her. Wes loves order, calm and control, Whitney is spontaneous and loud. Can they find enough common ground on which to build a relationship?

I didn't immediately warm to Whitney as a character. However as I got to know her, and more importantly got to know about her, I really fell for her. She is such a strong and determined character and never lets life get her down. Wes broke my heart with his stoicism, even if he was being pig-headed about getting help. This pair perfectly fitted together despite being totally wrong in so many ways. I really believed in them as a couple and thoroughly enjoyed reading their story.

The ending - oh the ending - it just made me melt. Best of all the epilogue wrapped up the story perfectly.

There is a good mix of romance, steam and angst, with some wonderful humour and some contrasting serious moments. Unless you prefer clean/sweet romances then this is a contemporary romance that I am more than happy to recommend.

Title: After I Was His
Series: Wounded Hearts #2
Author: Amelia Wilde
Genre: Standalone Contemporary Romance
Release Date: June 5, 2018


Amelia Wilde presents the spellbinding story of a warrior’s hidden wound and a love that could heal him...or destroy him.

Wes Sullivan is everything I loathe in a man.

Too strong. Too controlling. Too serious.
He left the Army, but that Army attitude won’t leave him.

And me? My spirit is so free that no man can contain me.
Screw rules. Screw routines. Maintain that element of surprise.

My only job is to get him to the church on time for a wedding.
Kissing him isn’t part of the deal.
Neither is falling for those lightning eyes, for that rock-hard body.

But beneath the bravado is a crack in his armor.
And his smile is a crack in mine.

With every kiss, we’re flirting with disaster.
This could end in heartbreak.
But you know what they say…
There’s only one way to find out.
