Alone Before You

Before You trilogy Book 1

Gwen is such a strong character and I admire her greatly. The things she had gone through would have broken other people, but she’s a survivor. Dealing with a guilt that’s not really her fault she has suffered and blamed herself for years. Now she has a shot at redemption or a better life and she has to decide if it’s worth it, if she’s worth it.

There were moments where I just wanted to hug her and times where I just wanted to yell at her that she deserved to be loved and happy. Gwen made me feel so many emotions it was crazy.

Heather is a great character and she made me laugh. She’s been through her own trials but she doesn't take any shit from Gwen or anybody else. She saw Gwen and wanted to be friends with her so she made it happen and things took off from there. Colt is just sex on a stick and I love how he goes after Gwen, even though she’s a challenge for him.

“Alone Before You” kept me on the edge of my seat and I could not stop reading it. The author Claire Scott did a very good job drawing me in. I was hooked from the first page. This really is a book that will suck you in and make you feel all kinds of things as you read along.

Claire Scott gives us a preview of the next book in the series, “Forsaken Before You”. It’s really just a continuation of “Alone Before You” and I can’t wait to read it.
