    Break my heart even more Isaac, why don't you? This short is an alternate PoV scene from the book Want. If you haven't read Want yet, I'd wait to read Aftertaste because it won't really hit home unless you know what's going on in the original book. I fell hard for the broken Isaac. Life had thrown him a bad lot and he was unable to fully deal with reality. His feelings for Juli were bittersweet to watch.Inside the closet is a different me : formal, casual, business casual, and work, all on hangers spaced an inch apart, each smelling like the fabric softener I measure out like an antidote. It's always been a habit, but it became a religion the day she buried her face in my shoulder and found solace there.I really wish we could see Isaac's PoV after the book OR...even better would be to get a second book about Isaac (view spoiler)[and his HEA. (hide spoiler)] I'm sending a beg to the author in requesting this!I'd done nothing wrong. I still haven't done anything wrong.

    Stephanie Lawton is a poet. I think what you need to understand about Want and its short story Aftertaste is that it’s not just a story that is being told. Stephanie Lawton creates ambiance and these two stories have a very thick feel to it. Oh and that flow... You’re watching things transpire in slow motion and you can’t help but to feel/ anticipate that something very important is about to happen. I read Want about two weeks ago and have read a few books in between. The moment I started to read Aftertaste I was immediately transported into that ambiance. I find that amazing. To be able to be right back in that mood that was created in Want without having to adjust takes skills. This short is written in Isaacs POV, which I appreciated. Isaac really doesn’t let you in while reading Want. He keeps things to himself, a lot. In fact the secrets or feelings revealed throughout the book are revealed by others and rarely by Isaac himself. To get a glimpse of his tortured soul was a treat. I just can’t help but to like Isaac, feel for him, root for him to figure things out and be happy even if I knew he couldn’t be the one although I wanted him to be the one… AGH! Yeah… This is a freebie y'all. Pick it up AFTER you read Want!

    The writing is so good it hurts. Or almost hurts. Either way: I'm weirdly attached to some of the passages; I love how the writer manages to get poetry into prose. It's quite a feat, actually, to do so naturally and without seeming forced. That's part of why I loved Want so much. A nice "teaser", in a way, for Need, which I'm dying to read.

    This is a short story from one of the scene in Want from Isaac's POV. I have love/hate feeling with Isaac. I love he is so kind and sweet to Julianne yet I hate he always ran away. But again I think he deserve second chance. It means second story from his POV. So Ms Lawton would you please write his own story? pretty please with a glimpse of Julianne-Dave story.

    Another taste of WANT in a different perspective. The perspective of the predator. This short read made me pity Isaac. He's a coward but he's been fighting the feeling for so long and I never really realized it until I read this. Poor dude. I guess he just really couldn't help himself and even worse, he doesn't know how to face his problems. Tsk. Just a little note to all: It's better if you read this AFTER you read WANT, you'll understand it better.

    There must me another book!!! a book to happens next!!!! I hate Isaac and no, no matter what he says he's still a selfish bastard, he just used Julianne and left her to fend for her self, I just hate him!! and Julianne is stupid enough to fall for him and to throw herself at him whenever she has the chance, ugh!! But I don't hate her, and I don't love her, WHATEVER it is I'm feeling for these characters I know there must be another book *sobs*!!

    I only didn't give it a great rating because I really dislike Isaac. BLAME HIM.

    Adds so much insight into Isaac's character and some of his struggles. Loved this glimpse into his point of view.

    Isaac has a bad dream about Julianne. A really bad dream. Or is it a dream? Is it a product of his imagination or a premonition?I wasn't quite sure how to rate this short story. I didn't realize when I picked it up that is connected to a novel titled 'Want', so as I was reading it, I was completely lost. However, the writing is wonderful and the characters well-fleshed.My advice is to read 'Want' before reading this short to get the full benefit of the story.*Many thanks to Inkspell Publishing for offering this title for free on their website.

    short story in Isaac's POV for a scene. I enjoyed this. i would have LOVED "Want" to have been written in alternating POVs through the whole book. In "Want" you do't get much of Isaac's thoughts and what's going on in his head, so I would have loved more of that. I'm getting ready to read Need (Want #2) so maybe that will fill in the blanks for me and give me more info on Isaac. But this little perspective in his eyes, is great.
