After Love Leaves: The Story of Us
by Michelle Alstead
Genre: Romance | Women’s Fiction | Contemporary Fiction
When Brad Sorenson crossed paths with Zoe O’Loughlin at a high school graduation party, the connection was undeniable. He noticed her when no one else did; she inspired him to want more out of life. But it would be years before they’d meet again… and in the most unlikely of places.
Brad was looking for a good time online, not love. But Zoe was so sweet, so kind. Everything about her was perfect — until she fell in love with him. Zoe doesn’t know why Brad left her standing in an airport; he won’t return her calls or texts. With her self-esteem and dreams shattered, she can’t imagine ever loving anyone else. A single phone call changes Brad’s life forever. Now he wants just one thing: to make amends with the only woman that’s ever mattered.
Will his first love give him a second chance or will Zoe turn her back on love for good?
