Release Day Blitz and Giveaway: Before by Nicola Marsh

~ Synopsis ~

Good girls finish last? Screw that.

Being a small town girl isn’t so bad. Unless Mom’s the town joke and I’ve spent my entire life shying away from her flamboyance. College in Las Vegas should be so much cooler. But it’s not. Bad things happen. Real bad.

So when my brother Reid offers me an all-expenses paid vacation to Australia for a month, I am so there. Discounting the deadly snakes on the outback cattle station, I should be safe. Until I meet Jack.

Jack defines bad boy and then some. He’s big, buffed, bronzed, and hotter than any guy I’ve ever met. His sexy Aussie accent makes me melt. And the guy can cook.

But he’s my brother’s new bestie and he lives on the other side of the world. There’s no future for us.

Is there?

~ My Review ~
4.5 Star Review

This book is a fast, easy read.

Jess is in her freshman year at UNLV.  She wants to let loose and lose the good girl image, but doesn't know how.  She tries to let loose the first night of break and that doesn't go so well.  So when big brother invites her for a month trip to Australia she jumps on it.  She never expected to fall in love.  She had an instant connection to Jack and didn't understand her feelings. She had never felt these things with anyone else.  Can she get Jack to open up to her?

Jack is done with his manwhore ways.  He is tired of the way he feels after his trysts.  He just wants a normal life.  He loves his job cooking and doesn't know how he can just stay where he is much longer.  Them in walked Jess and her brother Reid.  Reid offers him help and Jack doesn't know how to accept. No one had ever done anything helpful for him before.  He wants Jess, but needs to control himself because he doesn't want to ruin their friendship. He also feels like he would betray Reid and he can't do that.  Will he open up to Jess? Or will he let her walk away for good?

This book is actually the prequel to Brash.  I have Brash on my kindle and didn't even remember buying it. I am so happy because I am going to jump right in and read it now.  This is definitely a must read book.
