Aftermath by R J Prescott

The second book in a New Adult fiction series from USA Today bestselling author R.J. Prescott.

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.


I thought I loved the Irish accent before but now I would seriously kill for an Irish man of my own after reading the brilliant conclusion to Cormac and Emily's story.

After finishing the first book I did wonder whether there was going to be any point to the second book or whether it could have just finished there but it was excellently delivered. There was intense moments, suspense and as always, well delivered comedy from Tommy.

I'm going to assume that the themes and the way the book unfolds contains several triggers for people sensitive to themes such as rape and abuse. It's not for the faint hearted and I was seriously PO'd at specific points.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading and I hope all the Driscoll boys get the HEA they are looking for.
