REVIEW: After the Climb by Kristen Ashley

The Special Edition of After the Climb, a beautifully written second chance romance with all new material from New York Times bestselling author Kristen Ashley is available now and ZERO PENNIES to read digitally!


 I remember reading After the Climb when it originally released but then I saw that Kristen Ashley made some tweaks and additions to the original manuscript and being the fan that I am, I went in for a rereading. For those who are in a similar position, I'm hoping that if you have the book in your files that you'll read this post during release week and see that you'll get access to it for FREE. WOOHOO!

After the Climb is the first book in a new series and, of course, Court and I are EXCITED. We love a good series and we especially love a KA series, so we're dying for the next books to come out. This series looks particularly exciting because it appears as though it will be multi-generational (and knowing KA, we'll hopefully get more than a few novels out of these characters and their friends). Anyway, let's focus on this new (updated) novel, shall we?

This novel tackles the love story of Duncan and Imogen and how their young love went terribly wrong before it went incredibly right. I've seen some say there are echoes of The Will or older KA novels and I can definitely see it. Imogene gives off a persona that seems a little more posh, if you will, but as we all know, that's just what people see. The 'real' her is warm and caring and all of the things you love about a KA heroine. Duncan also has all of the things you've come to enjoy about her heroes. We're thrust into the conflict at the very beginning and then the resolution is really the primary focus of the rest of the novel. The things that make this novel stand out in the sea of other KA novels is: 1) she wrote this for/with her fans--so perhaps some of what she'd normally do isn't what she did 2) the children play a large part in how things happen 3) and the source of the conflict is something that I don't think she's done before.

All of that being said, this novel has many things that we've come to enjoy about her novels: major food and fashion porn, banter and humor that makes you smile, even while you're shaking your head, characters who start out stubborn as hell but when they finally give in, it's so good, and honestly, all the comfort of falling into a Kristen Ashley novel. 

We're super excited to see what happens with Chloe's novel and where this series goes next. Happy reading, y'all.  

With many new chapters, and introducing a new series character, this re-released Special Edition version of After the Climb is the book you have, but it’s also so much more!
They were the Three Amigos: Duncan Holloway, Imogen Swan and Corey Szabo. Two young boys with difficult lives at home banding together with a cool girl who didn’t mind mucking through the mud on their hikes.
They grew up to be Duncan Holloway, activist, CEO and face of the popular River Rain outdoor stores, Imogen Swan, award-winning actress and America’s sweetheart, and Corey Szabo, ruthless tech billionaire.
Rich and very famous, they would learn the devastating knowledge of how the selfish acts of one would affect all their lives.
And the lives of those they loved.
Start the River Rain series with After the Climb, the story of Duncan and Imogen navigating their way back to each other, decades after a fierce betrayal.
And introduce yourself to their families, who will have their stories told when River Rain continues.
