“Before I Fall gives readers a glimpse of what life after a war can be….I highly recommend not only for the love story, but for a story that will keep you thankful and grounded”
~ Under the Covers

Everyone knows military life is not all sunshine and glory. Especially the aftermath. Coming back from any war not only leave soldiers broken but affecting everyone around them. Before I Fall gives readers a glimpse of what life after a war can be.

Beth has been taking care of her Dad for quite some time while working and going to school. Unfortunately, her dad who is a veteran with medical issues is not getting the help he needs leaving Beth in a very bad predicament. To help with some medical bills, she has to take an extra job tutoring where she will meet Noah. A veteran who is trying to get his life back to normal. But like many soldiers of the war, he is nothing but unscathed. It will take a whole lot more to get any kind of normalcy if that’s even possible for someone like him.

My heart broke for Beth, her dad, and Noah. They are in a bad situation where support was almost to nothing. It was frustrating to see the struggles they had to go through financially, physically and emotionally. It was a long haul before they got their happy-ending but it worth the hardships.

Being a fan of Jessica Scott’s Coming Home series, I can’t help but to be excited about this new one. Just like Scott’s previous books, Before I Fall consists of realistic characters with realistically tragic issues. But giving them a promise of hope and chance at finding their happy-endings. It’s a great read.  I highly recommend not only for the love story, but for a story that will keep you thankful and grounded

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
