After the Game (The Field Party #3) Reviews
WTF kind of name is Bryony?!? That is all.
Update: I liked it a lot. Still hate the name.
“I’ve found that the things that rattle us the most are the ones worth making sacrifices for.”
"This was where I wanted to be. Nowhere else had ever felt this right. No one else would make me feel like Riley Young did."
“One day I’ll ask you to marry me,” I told her.
“And one day I’ll say yes”
A solid good book but i had some real and pretty big issues with this one.
All three books in this series follow two characters - a football player of the high school team and the girl he falls in love with. we all know that going in. So that is fine.
All three books handle deeper, harder or troubling topics for both main characters. So that was expected as well. But sadly not fine in this book.
Lets start out with what i LOVED in this book:
I LOVE the football aspects of this book series and whi ...more
This seriously pains me to rate this book so low. I absolutely adore this series, and honestly I loved this book until about half way through when something came out that just didn't fit. I didn't agree with where Glines took Brady's story. I felt that there were more viable options that could've been utilized instead, but I guess that's why I'm the reader and not the author.
I still love how Glines is able to pack so much into these little novels though. You can easily read these in ...more
Watching someone you love so much love lost in their own head was heartbreaking. Alzheimer's was a terrible disease.
Riley's grandmamma has Alzheimer's and throughout the book you can definitely tell. I had a family member with the same disease and let me tell you something, it's awful. So I can seriously relate to what Riley and her parents are feeling.
"Human nature isn't always pretty."
No, it's not.
In all three books we see different situations but they are all very real. Cancer, Murder, Su ...more
I'm sort of crossing my fingers that somehow this series will improve and After the Game did. Thank goodness and I'm sure I'll be continuing the series.
Riley Young returns in the small town of Lawton with her parents and daughter, Bryony, so they can take care her grandmother with Alzheimer's disease. Two years, people shamed and threw hurtful words her way when Rhett Lawton raped her. It saddens me these people did not protect nor defend Riley. She's a victim here and these people choose to ta ...more
After 'Under the Lights' I wasn't too sure how I'd feel about this book. However, I completely fell in love with this. Riley was such an empowering character. She'd been raped, got told she was lying by the entire town and had a child but only saw the positives. All at the age of 17. I loved every scene with her daughter Bryony. There was so much love and affection in this novel.
