Before You by Amber Hart

Before You (Before & After, #1)Before You by Amber Hart
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I not only offered to read and review this book because it was on a blog tour, I also realized I had requested it from Net Galley the publishers being Kensington Books.

I'm not really a sucker for a love story, is she, isn't she, does he, do they? sort of thing but there was something about this book that had me hooked most of the day yesterday. Faith is a broken girl who appears to be 'mending' by not being herself, after all, her Father is a Pastor and she has to "shine".

Diego is a lad with a past. We get to know his past as the story unfolds.

The attraction, the angst, the emotions between these two, you know they will get together in the end, but something compels you to stay with each turning page.

My only downside was the ending, it was just too happy ever after, but that is just MY personal viewpoint. Apart from this, I can't wait to read further into this series, because I want to be proved wrong!!!


Some say love is deadly. Some say love is beautiful. I say it is both.

Faith Watters spent her junior year traveling the world, studying in exquisite places, before returning to Oviedo High School. From the outside her life is picture-perfect. Captain of the dance team. Popular. Happy. Too bad it’s all a lie.

It will haunt me. It will claim me. It will shatter me. And I don't care.

Eighteen-year-old Diego Alvarez hates his new life in the States, but staying in Cuba is not an option. Covered in tattoos and scars, Diego doesn't stand a chance of fitting in. Nor does he want to. His only concern is staying hidden from his past—a past, which if it were to surface, would cost him everything. Including his life.

At Oviedo High School, it seems that Faith Watters and Diego Alvarez do not belong together. But fate is as tricky as it is lovely. Freedom with no restraint is what they long for. What they get is something different entirely.

Love—it will ruin you and save you, both.
