Iris After the Incident
Chic Manila is my contemporary romance series set in the Philippines, with Filipino characters. Iris After the Incident is its 8th book (yay!), but they can all be read as standalones. Start with any book and then work your way back, not a problem.
Which moment has defined your life so far?
Whether she likes it or not, Iris’s life has been divided into two: Before the Incident, and After the Incident. Something very private was made very public, and since then life has been about recovering from being shamed, discovering her true friends, and struggling to find a new normal.
Two years into this new life and she finally connects with a guy again. He lives in the apartment down the hall, he’s hot, and he doesn’t look at her that way. He doesn’t know what happened. But he also won’t give her his name, not right away—which has to mean he’s got something to hide too.
Iris wants to start over. Should she do that with the only person who will understand, or is this the exact same decision that got her in trouble in the first place?
