Title: After the Rain
Series: Destination Love #4
Author: Jo Watson
Stormy-Rain and Marcus could not be more different: she’s a free-spirited, rainbow-haired hippie; he wears a suit and over-shines his already too-shiny shoes. She believes in auras; he’s governed by logic and doesn’t believe in Fate. But Fate believes in them…
So what happens when their worlds collide – and they are forced to embark on an epic road trip to catch a plane to a wedding on the other side of the world?
The clock is ticking…and they’re seriously ticking each other off. But Stormy and Marcus are about to discover just how thin the line between love and hate really is.
I’m gonna mention this every time I review one of her books – I love Jo Watson. If you haven’t picked up one of her books yet, I suggest you do it quickly and you should start with Burning Moon.
After the Rain features Stormy-Rain, the younger step-sister of Lily from Burning Moon. We already know from that book that Stormy is not your average young woman. She’s a bonafide weirdo, but she owns it and it causes for some hilarious moments when met with the “normal” world aka. Marcus.
I was hooting and snorting and turning pages at a frantic pace until there were no more pages left to turn, and that only left me with a craving for more, but also with a smile on my face. Because Jo Watson will do that to you. Smiles and cravings.
I like how we get to explore a bit of Africa in each of her books – Jo lives in Johannesburg, South Africa and most, if not all, always start out there, which gives us outsiders a little insight into the cultural aspect of the place.
The story itself is a fun one – two polar opposites have to travel together and of course, chaos ensues and nothing goes as planned, but that’s how we like our cute rom-com books to be.
I truly hope this is not the last I see of these characters, from all of the Destination Love books. They are all so lovable and I just want to be friends with them all.
Do I recommend this book?
To any rom-com fan who loves the “opposites attract” and “hate to love” storyline.
