Review by Gia:
I loved reading After the Pain.   After the Pain is book two in The Reflection series.   It is not a standalone and you must read read book one, Between the Pain, first.  After the Pain picks up where Between the Pain left off.   I loved the first book and the second book is just as great.
Between the Pain was a tearjerker.  I rarely cry when reading and I cried during that one.  I wasn't sure what to except with After the Pain so when I sat down to read it I had tissues handy.  I'm happy to say, I shed no tears with this one.  It was a very emotional read.  
Hallie is an amazingly strong character.  She has been given a lot to deal with.  We find out what Sean has been keeping from Hallie.   His secret isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be.  Sean's past and ex catch up with him. Hallie is surprised by Sean's ex.  Sena's ex is crazy and cause all sorts of problems for Hallie and Sean. 
Hallie meets Colby at open mic night.  He seems like a good guy.  I keep hoping every time he popped up in the story that Hallie would not fall for him.  Colby has a past.  I was very surprised on how Colby fit in the story. 
After the Pain is a great story.  I loved the ending.  I hope that someday we will get Colby's story. 
5 Amazeballs Stars!!!

About the Author: 

Writing has been a passion of mine since high school when I took my very first creative writing class. I was lucky enough to take a few creative writing and English classes in college that fueled my desire to create. With the encouragement of my friends and family, I decided to write my first novella series. I'm also an active wife and mother. When I have a quiet moment, I love to swap my play-doh for my laptop. There's nothing more satisfying than creating art.
