Long After by Cheryl McIntyre
Chase Malloy is funny, loyal, and an all around nice guy. He’s also sloppy, tattooed, and undirected. All Chase wants to do is survive college, hang out with friends, and make music. Knowing his best friend’s step-sister since they were fourteen, Annie and he have always had a love-hate relationship. The last thing Chase expects is to fall for Annie, but he knows he’ll never live up to her idea of the perfect man.
On the outside, Annie and Loden’s relationship appears picture perfect. But behind closed doors, Annie quickly realizes Loden isn’t the man he pretends to be. Every time her not so well laid plans crumble, and Loden proves to be not so Mr. Right, Chase is there to pick her up and brush her off. Will she realize the perfection she’s been searching for has been in front of her all this time?
*Long After is a companion novel to Sometimes Never and Before Now. Many of the same characters appear in Chase and Annie's story. However, it can be read as a stand-alone book.
**This is a new adult novel. Due to harsh language, sexual situations, and violence, this book is recommended for 17+
Annie's story made me am emotional mess at times, seeing the pain she went through, but didn't allow anyone else to see.
Chase is definitely swoon worthy and his patience with Annie was so sweet. I loved how he knew her well enough not to push her while still pushing her.
3)Well it might be a taboo question but I'm wondering if Guy will get a book after Kellin (Mason's brother)?
