Review : Aftermath by Denise Grover Swank

Scarlett Goodwin’s world is divided into Before and After.

Before she agreed to tutor Tucker price, college junior Scarlett was introvert, struggling with her social anxiety and determined to not end up living in a trailer park like her mother and her younger sister. A mathematics major, she goes to her classes, to her job in the tutoring lab, and then hides in the apartment she shares with her friend, Caroline.

After junior Tucker Price, Southern University’s star soccer player enters the equation, her carefully plotted life is thrown off its axis. Tucker’s failing his required College Algebra class. With his eligibility is at risk, the university chancellor dangles an expensive piece of computer software for the math department if Scarlett agrees to privately tutor him.Tucker’s bad boy, womanizer reputation makes Scarlett wary of any contact, let alone spending several hours a week in close proximity.

But from her first encounter, she realizes Tucker isn’t the person everyone else sees. He carries a mountain of secrets which she suspects hold the reason to his self-destructive behavior. But the deeper she delves into the cause of his pain, the deeper she gets sucked into his chaos. Will Scarlett find the happiness she’s looking for, or will she be caught in Tucker’s aftermath?


Never in my life i felt so confused when i had to write a review.This book wasn't bad,maybe a little too much drama,but that's not something new when it comes to this kind of books.Did i like the book?Hell yeah!Maybe too much for my taste.Now i'm really not making sense,right?
Well,i hope what i'm about to write will make sense..

Meet Scarlett Goodwin,a girl with a bad past whom is trying to live her life trying to be careful.A math lover.A girl who ,because of what she's been through in the past, has too many issues.Something that i can understand. ..But.Everything.Changes!Guess why?There's a boy..Yeah,i know.Typical,but crazy.At first they are just friends.Seriously?Yeah.That's what they thought.Me?I was like: 1+1 = 2.Hmm..Maybe my imagination was running wild before time.Yeah.Well,you'll start thinking exactly like me when you meet the boy...

Meet Tucker Price.The  boy whom everyone knows because of his reputation,or at least everyone thought they knew him.But..There's something about Tucker that will make you want to know him.To find every little secret he has.Not all,but at least a few.The important ones.The problem?The girl he asks to tutor him in math, can see right past his bad boy facade.I'm pretty sure it's easy to guess who the girl is..If not,read above ,the first description..His past?Bad.The reason why he has the charming attitude and the desire to push everyone he loves away.

Remember: Bad Boy+Good Girl= Disaster....In a good way..Maybe.Beautiful Disaster?Exactly.

This book was about two broken people who find each other-or i should say math brought them together?-,and that's how the story starts.They are just two students who are struggling to move on,to live their life and leave the past behind,but it's not easy.
It was a little sad,mainly because i hated how everything happened at some point.And it was Scarlett's fault.Why?Because she was so easy.I'm not saying that i prefer Tucker.He was the charming boy who,if you don't count the bad past, thought he could have every girl he wanted.Not Scarlett.At least not at the beginning..but that changed,so it wasn't different,only that he fell in love.Holy moly..

Thinking about what happened,i admit that not everything was perfect and i didn't expect that.In my opinion it was a crazy story,but some scenes i really liked.

It was hard for me to ignore sometimes how Tucker acted different when he was with Scarlett.The little things he did .Sometimes he was a mystery.Sometimes he was a good friends.Sometimes he was sweet.And sometimes he was annoying.Scarlett?Sometimes naive and too smart.I liked her and i guess after all she did what she thought was good for her...You can't tell your heart what to feel,even if you mind screams: BAD!

Sometimes when two broken people meet they usually end up fixing each other,their love is more intense and they usually tend to do stupid things , and sometimes they have to choose between trying to stay or run.To take the chance or not.In this case?Good and bad things happened.The End?Fantastic.

It was pretty good story.The first one written by Denise i read,and i admit that it was ok.More than ok.
