Some opposites attract; some rip each other's clothes off.

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.

Having read all of Jo Watson's books so far, I have always been intrigued by Stormy Rain who is one of the bigger friendship group, and has struck me as wacky!   Now in After The Rain I get to know her a whole lot better and she is quirky but so so loveable.  She has so many endearing qualities to her, which not everyone can see. 

And Marcus, is a lawyer and about as opposite from Stormy Rain as you can get, and he has promised that he will accompany Stormy to Prague for the wedding they both need to attend. Only Stormy is petrified of flying and things are never as simple as they should be. 

In fact I should warn you don't read the first 15% of this while you are on a plane,  I did and I'm a confident flier but even I was getting a bit worried partly as I hit turbulence at the same point as certain happenings in the early chapters. 

Simmering away beneath Stormy Rain and Marcus' hilarious banter is some explosive sexual chemistry and wow those were some fabulous scenes.  The sex in this book is fabulous and then there is the scene in the helicopter that is so clever.  

I love all the unexpected turns this trip took when one simple journey turned into something a lot different.   

This is another fabulous story from this author, who I am continually excited to hear about new books from! 

Thank you to Headline Eternal and Netgalley for this copy which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.
