Review Aftermath By Denise Grover Swank

Our 4 star review
Scarlett and Tucker are both juniors at Southern University.  Scarlett is a math major and Tucker is a  history major with a full-ride soccer scholarship.  Tucker is on academic probation because of his grades and Scarlett is hired to be his Algebra tutor.

Scarlett is very self-conscious and feels uncomfortable in situations where she is the focus of attention.  Scarlett suffers from panic attacks and loves being in her analytical world where she can follow the rules to achieve her answer.  Tucker is a player…in all worlds.  He has been with lots of women but doesn’t do relationships and is the star of the soccer team.  He strives for attention and is arrogant.

During their tutoring sessions Scarlett and Tucker get to know one another on a deeper level.  Scarlett sees the real Tucker and he isn’t the same person when he’s with Scarlet…he is his true self when he’s with Scarlett.  Everything else is just an act to go with the image.  Tucker is good at reading Scarlett too and knows that she hides from herself and doesn’t let anybody close.

“He said he shows a different side of himself to me because he trusts me.  I guess I trust him, too…I can’t remember the last time I’ve trusted anyone.”

Both Scarlett and Tucker have secrets from their past and neither one of them are ready to let them out.  Tucker fights his feelings for Scarlett and stops their friendship from going further.

“I want you in my life, and if we do this, I will lose you. … You make me want to be a better person.  This is me being a better person.”

Now to use the cliché “what the heart wants, the heart gets.”  Of course Tucker and Scarlett can’t fight off their attraction forever, but with secrets and fear it’s hard to build a solid relationship.  Tucker is given a shot at achieving his dream and takes it, but is it really his dream?  And does it matter how it will affect Scarlett?

“I never deserved you.  I’m getting exactly what I deserve…Goodbye, Scarlett.”
