It’s finally here!!!! Today is the day I have been waiting for. Before is officially published!!!!!
It is available as an Ebook here are the links so that you can grab a copy (because you DO want a copy. LOL) It looks really pretty on an E-reader….. I gave mine a hug. Okay, a kiss too…..
Here’s where to get it at Barnes and Noble:
Here’s Smashwords: Note: those without an E-reader can download a PDF from here to read on your computer. 🙂
Okay, so there’s where you can buy it!!! And why would you want to buy it??? It’s FABULOUS. *sigh* Fine. Of course I would say that. So don’t take my word for it. How about the word of a reviewer named Lila? Lila was given an Advanced Review Copy to read and review (and no I had never met her before she was given a copy – she was not my friend. LOL. but she is now. and i think you’ll see why after you see this fantastic review.) Lila has a brand new blog so check it out: http://www.babblingaboutbooksandstuff.blogspot.com/
Here’s her review of Before:
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a bittersweet sensation,, great start,, tottal cliffhanging end,, me crying out NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO,,, as I read the last page and hiding my face in my hands,,
yep,, that’s a recepie for hooking me up to a book LoL

The Plot – Since this is a prequel, there’s not much going on here. Is just a taste of what to come. Mysterious guy likes pretty and oblivious girl. Something bad happens. I’m left hanging from a cliff. Yep,, I like that plot. LoL
The Characters – Mysterious guy is,, well,, mysterious LoL, but we can see a glimpse of him and I like the way he thinks and how he is so bad ass in one part and as soon as he sees her he kind of melts inside, but has to hide. She is your friend that is beautiful, cool to hang out with and honest. Yep. I mean, who does its own paperwork now a day? Seriously! Well, apparently, Hev does.But, nerds apart, I like them already LoL
The Writing – First person narrative!!!! Can I have a high five? o/
Yep,, my fave. It’s actually split in to Sam’s and Hev’s point of view. So we can see what each of them are thinking and feeling, but the best part is, even though they are really different, the way they thinks is not that different so the jumping from one head to the other doesn’t give you a head each. Her writing is very fluid and she doesn’t over detail which I love. My attention span, as I said before, is of a 5yo and I can’t retain to much info at the same time, specially if is a visual one. I don’t particularly care if the wall paper have daises hand painted by a grand grandmother of the late step father of the neighbor’s cousin. I just want to know what went down in the room, LoL,,, So, yep, really great, down to the point writing ,, high five on that uhuuuu o/
Considerations – The start let my hopes up for the next book and one of the things I really liked was the name: Before. Its about before it all,, before the change, before the start, before the encounter,, simply before,,, luv it cose it has all this meaning linked to it,,,
Is that not the BEST EVER review? LOL. It has moving pictures and everything. When i first saw this on GoodReads, I was like who is this girl and how fantastic is she??? LOL!!!
If that doesn’t convince you to read Before then you probably shouldn’t read it. 🙂
Soooo, moving on….. I did promise something today…. What was it again??? ………………….
OH! Right. The Masquerade Trailer!!! Who wants to see? (You all better be raising your hands!)
Soo I hope that got you excited for Masquerade debuting on Dec. 16th. If it did I totally recommending dowloading BEFORE TODAY to get a little taste of what’s to come. 🙂 It will for sure pretty up your e-reader or computer. 🙂
