Book Review: After All by Laurie Winter

After AllAfter All (Warriors of the Heart #3)
by Laurie Winter
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: April 18, 2018

Two years after lifesaving surgery left her infertile, Molly Hernandez is running full steam toward her goal of becoming a DEA Special Agent. She won’t be distracted by falling in love with an Army veteran who’s focused on settling down and making babies.

Drew Atwater delayed marriage and family until his Army career ended. Now, he has a one-year plan to find the woman of his dreams. Unfortunately, the only woman he wants is a spirited cop determined to leave their peaceful town.

While working with troubled teens, Molly and Drew discover they make a powerful team, but their opposing goals threaten to pull them miles apart. Can the power of unselfish love prove their future together will surpass any dream they could accomplish alone?

What I thought

This was a mostly interesting read, but it's not quite a 4 star read for me.

The usual "they just don't understand why the other doesn't get it" trope was given a variation on it by neither fully opening up, and being equally stubborn. It did though annoy me that Drew just wouldn't get a clue and leave Molly be. Well actually, Drew annoyed me he just wouldn't let Molly be, and he even drew in other woman when it was clear as day that he needed time to process the situation.

I do think that Molly's infertility was handled well, especially her interactions with her friends. Her desire to be supportive of her friends and respectful of her feelings, was well done. I must admit I thought things would go a certain way, when she was helping the teen. And it was great that it didn't.

*I'm a lucky fish and got an ARC of this read*
