After The Party by Lisa Jewell

Publication Date: August 16, 2011
Genre: Chick-lit. Women's Fiction
Heat Level: G
Reviewed For: Crazy Books Tours/ Author
My Rating:

Book Blurb: It's eleven years since Jem Catterick and Ralph McLeary first got together. They thought it would be for ever, that they'd found their happy ending. As everyone agreed, they were the perfect couple. Then two became four, a flat became a house. Romantic nights out became sleepless nights in. And they soon found that life wasn't quite so simple.

My Thoughts: This book to me is a must read for any couple with kids. This book really hits on subjects that anyone who has been with their significant other for awhile will face. There is a book that came out before this one about  when Ralph and Jem first met. I didn't read it and it might be fun to read  now. However its not required. This book alone is a good.Through out this book we watch as Ralph and Jem move apart from one another, deal with temptations outside their partnership, and change as people. This book really touches on how having children can really effect a relationship. You go from two people who have nothing other then each other to suddenly another person who just flat out demands all attention on them 24 hours a day.

It is hard to talk about this book too much without giving too much away. Anyone who enjoys a good story that touches the heart, this is one. I recommend this to anyone who likes chick-lit type books. So while this review is brief, I enjoyed it and I hope others do too.
