Leigh D’Alessandro is a fighter. She fought to escape her dysfunctional family, to end a soul-killing marriage, and to build a new life in a small Tennessee town. When the fate of the community hospital she works for is threatened, she’s primed and ready for battle. What she can’t fight any longer is her unshakable attraction to her best friend’s brother, who has a notorious reputation and triggers all her worst fears about trust and betrayal.

Walker Leffersbee is a lover. At least that’s the reputation he’s built in his hometown. Scion of a prosperous Tennessee banking family, he’s a known ladies’ man and a confirmed bachelor. His hands are full as he juggles competing demands from his family’s bank and his growing property renovation business. The last thing he needs is to give in to his long-standing craving for his sister’s headstrong and hot-tempered best friend. Especially because she’s the only one who knows the secret that threatens to upend his life.

When a home renovation project brings them too close for comfort, they both struggle to withstand the growing heat. As they grow closer helping each other navigate family minefields, Walker learns that love is not a four-letter word, and Leigh realizes that some battles are meant to be lost. 

But Walker’s secret is the one thing that could keep them apart, unless they both decide to fight for the love they never looked for but now can’t live without.

Before and After You is a contemporary romance and can be listened to as a stand-alone. Book two in the Leffersbee series, Green Valley Chronicles, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Couldn’t finish

How and why??? The narration was so cringe I could barely get past chapter one. I tried to finish this book for like a month but after 5 more minutes I was on the verge of a mental crisis. Again, 2 characters completely undeserving of a Green Valley spin-off. Even Zora & Nick’s appearance wasn’t enough to salvage this story.

Beautiful story and fantastic narration

Hope’s writing is beautiful and this story is wonderful.

Leigh and Walker have a past, present and future. Several years pass during this book and there Is so much chemistry , banter and angsty moments between these two.

Leigh is such a lovely person and has a genuine heart that wants to help everyone. Walker is an easy going man but is very dedicated to those around him.

This is a wonderful story of two people growing, finding their way and realizing what’s important.

Natalie Dean and Sean Crisden did an amazing job with the narration. The emotion and individualism they gave each character was fantastic!
