Would you consider the audio edition of After Math to be better than the print version?
I only listened to the audio and have not read the print version even though I own the print copy as well.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Tucker. There was more to him than he let the public see.
What does Appelusa McGlynn bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Appelusa McGlynn did a nice job overall. At first her voice sounded nasally, but after while I got used to it. She did Tucker's voice very well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, I would have listened to it in one sitting if I had the time. Any chance I got, I grabbed my iPhone and turned on Audibles.
Any additional comments?
This was a nice NA story. Yes, it was probably one that was done a hundred times, but I there was something about the characters and the writing that I really enjoyed.
Scarlett has social anxiety. She is asked to tutor Tucker, the star soccer player at her university. Tucker has a reputation of getting what he wants when he wants it. At first Scarlett does not want to do it, but feels forced since it means money for the math department. Slowly, a friendship starts and I loved that this was not insta-love. I loved that the secrets that each character kept secret were NOT revealed until the very end and what was held until the end was necessary for the story. The scenes when they were training (Q&A) and would talk were my favorite. There was so much more to these characters than they showed to the public. I never read anything by Denise Swank before and I know after listening to AFTER MATH I will. I am not sure if I will read the next book in the series, REDESIGNED. It is about Scarlett's BFF, Caroline. I am not sure how I feel about Caroline. She had her own dating issues, but seemed to have to many opinions about Scarlett's. I know that Caroline was probably just overprotective of Scarlett, but sometimes her attitude annoyed me. She was so judgmental. Caroline seemed like a girl that liked to party at bars. I see that Redesigned has great reviews, but I think I will need to take a break and forget about Caroline for a little bit.

I loved it. Both the story and the narration captured me as Swank's characters as they come together and heal one another. My only complaint would be that it wasn't long enough.
I have read this many times and the audio version is just as good. tucker and scarlett and the takes of uni and finding love. a classic story
Wow! Very timely. I enjoyed listening. Very Good reader and excellent reminder of romantic high school life. What's next.
