BLOG TOUR & GIVEAWAY: Aftereffects by L.J. Greene

L.J. Greene 
Publication date: October 8th 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance

What could be more terrifying than falling in love with the person who is your good place? Maybe realizing just a smidge too late that there can be dire consequences to becoming your best friend’s lover.
The lives of Keir Stevens and Selene Georgiou serendipitously collide mid-span on San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, one jarring step ahead of fate. He’s a temporary transplant from Seattle; she’s facing the biggest career opportunity of her life. They have no notion of the common thread that connects them.
As they come to discover they share a similar adversity, their relationship evolves from a fun and frivolous infatuation with nowhere to go into a true friendship with sincerity, humor, and respect at its heart.
It’s awfully hard not to fall in love with that – even if you’re pretty darn certain you shouldn’t.
But when love and friendship suffer their own devastating collision – their interests brutally conflicting – the consequences of blurring the lines between the two suddenly become real. In the end, which one will be the stronger? And more importantly, can either survive?

AFTER EFFECTS is a standalone dual POV adult contemporary romance about the things we choose in life out of all the things that are beyond our choosing – a tale of love and friendship, of time and how we spend it, and of the inner wars that ultimately show us what really matters.


This is the first novel I have read by L.J. Greene.  I really enjoyed the flow of the storyline.  Greene was able to create characters that felt real and raw with emotion and a storyline that was engaging and realistic.  The relationship between Keir and Selene was easy-going, fun, honest, captivating and true to life.  The story kept me engaged with it's real emotional issues and flowed like a movie.  I would love to read other books by L.J. Greene  

Author Bio:
Romance author, obsessive multi-tasker, California native, music lover with no apparent musical talent, travel enthusiast, and cheese connoisseur.



  1. Hi Denise, Thank you so much for reading and reviewing Aftereffects! As someone who is likewise self-employed, I certainly appreciate that reading is something we do in our precious spare time, and only because we want to. I'm grateful you gave me some of yours. :) It is particularly gratifying to have you say that the characters felt real because that is always the intent for me - to create characters that reflect our experiences in an authentic way and to tell a compelling story in the process. You may want to check out Sound Effects, which is Jamie and Mel's story - and a great one. Many thanks for being a part of my tour and if it's not too much trouble, I'd be so appreciative of your posting your review to Goodreads and Amazon and/or any channel of your choice. Reviews are the lifeblood of indie authors like me. Warm regards, LJ
