Product description

Product Description

This is a sweet lesbian romance, not erotica. It contains sensitive themes such as adoption, sexual assault, and gay marriage. This is an adult content book.

My name is Willow Erwin, and I hate summer. My mother always said hate is a strong word, but in this case, it’s the right one. I haven’t found one good thing about the season. Most people tell me since I’m a teacher that reason alone should make it my favorite season, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. For me, summer brings everything I abhor; bugs, heat, sweating, and painful memories of a woman I will never see again.

Then, in the wink of one very beautiful blue eye, all of that changed. This is the story of Summer and how she taught me to love her. It’s about her quiet, and sometimes fearful, way of teaching me to embrace the moment, and to live recklessly. It’s about how both of us learned to forgive, to hope, to pray, and to love, even after summer ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Baskets 23 September 2015

Willow has some decisions to make in her life. To move, risk her heart, to go for a new job in her home town... Summer, has confidence issues, yet she's one of the most intriguing characters Katie Mettner has written. (I've read them all.) She's supportive, loving and gives Willow strength when she needs help. Their connection from their meet cute has me engaged and invested in this love story. I will admit that lesbian romance isn't my normal genre. But, this was such a endearing and true love story that I couldn't not love it. There are mistakes made and love given yet love never fails. Whether it's between Summer and Willow or Willow and her family and friends. If you're looking for a sweet romance that will leave you with a happy heart I highly recommend After Summer Ends.
3.0 out of 5 stars I thought is was a good story, and the author did a nice job ... 8 October 2015

I was hooked by the title and the prologue and purchased the book. I thought is was a good story, and the author did a nice job developing the relationship of two main characters, Summer and Willow. There is nothing more exciting than a new romance, and I enjoyed getting to know the two women, learning about their pasts, and feeling the sexual tension grow between them as they got to know each other. There were several other characters in story, and the author tackled a wide range of physical problems in all of them, and social issues which, honestly, I found myself rushing through to get back to the main characters. Though I appreciated the time and dedication of the author to fully inform the reader, I did not feel I needed it in this story. When I read fiction, I like to escape into the characters and the scenery and not necessarily be taught any lessons. I still give it three stars and definitely worth reading. I could have read more about Summer and Willow...even into the fall. Thanks, Katie Mettner

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't want it to end 5 October 2015
By Karen Lea - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is the first time I’ve read an F/F book, but because I love everything this author has written, I thought it was worth reading. I’m so glad I did.
Was it what I expected? Well, since I haven’t read F/F books, I suppose I didn’t really have expectations. While I was reading After Summer Ends, I had to stop several times simply because I was carried away by the emotions I felt. Both of those women, Willow and Summer, had gone through so many obstacles in their lives and yet both of them had survived them.
However, I think the overriding theme of this book is love. Love has a way of making people stronger. It doesn’t matter what form this love takes, but it is the strongest emotion a human being can feel and I felt it a lot during this book. I loved each of the main characters as individuals but most of all, I loved the way each of them supported each other.
Although there were a few times I had tears in my eyes, I finished After Summer ends with a big smile on my face.
I gave After Summer Ends 5 shining stars.

Willow is a teacher that hates summer because of bad childhood memories... Summer is a new employee at the school without realizing she is changing willow and her bad thoughts of the season summer. This is a great read... It is very well written about 2 women finding love and healing with each other.
