Book Review: Aftermath – Cara Dee

I absolutely adore this book! It was written beautifully and it tugs to your heart in so many levels. Austin Huntley is a family man who lives his life in order. He’s got a nice career and a nice family and is simply content with what he’s got. Cameron Nash on the other hand is an antisocial mechanic with very little patience when it comes to dealing with – err life. Bonded by their five months traumatic captivity together, the two men formed something that they realized is more than just their will to escape their captor but something that will change their lives forever.

I didn’t expect this book to be so good. I mean, I loved how the author seemingly tied everything together while going back and forth from the past to the present every other chapter. I love the “love” element in it though, I find the whole kidnapping thing a bit puzzling but it’s okay. It’s no biggie to be honest since it kinda helped the story development. It’s also nice to note that both characters have their own identity that was easily dissected throughout the book. Cam’s character for one is a very interesting character. I liked the fact that his Asperger Disorder was discussed here and it didn’t become an issue at all because seriously, it’s no biggie. Cam’s so adorbs here to be honest. It’s actually surprising that the book isn’t that dark at all. Their situation was traumatic ofcourse but it sure was nice to note that the author was able to turn it into light reading – in a good way.
