BEFORE by Nicola Marsh Release Day Launch

By: Nicola Marsh
Before 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?

Jennifer's Review:
Nicola has written the prequel to here book BRASH --to show where it all began for Jess and Jack. Go back 10 years in the lives of Jess and Jack and see just how strong the bond is. So read this one first or if you have read BRASH already -- this is a great read so that you can see how their relationship was formed and what happened while Jess was vacationing in Australia! I personally have not read BRASH so the characters were completely fresh to me.

Nicola has a unique Australian voice and she tells a love story that has some great banter and the sexual tension in this is so thick not even the sharpest knife could cut through it.
The story tells of two main characters: Jess and Jack.

Jess -- a quiet , goody two shows who has had a traumatic event happen at college but in perfect timing her older brother, Reid offers to bring her along with him to Australia for the summer where she meets Jack. Jess has vowed to herself to have fun, throw caution to the wind, live a little on the edge. Jess is easy to relate to, she has a realness to her that just makes you like her.

Jack -- has had a tough childhood and has been moving around place to place as an adult. He vows to make a change to his life for the good. Meeting Jess's brother, Reid,  might be the thing that helps him change his life but where will Jess fit into all of this? I gotta say Jack drove me a little crazy the way he pushed Jess away -- I hope they actually get together in BRASH - so I am looking forward to that relationship going forward :-) Because when Jack isn't worried about not letting things go somewhere their relationship has an easiness and realness that works well.

Go get Brash the first in the series and the continue forward with  Jess and Jack's story! I really came to like Reid, the little we saw of him in this book then you can move on to read Reid and Adele's story in the second book, Blush!

I recommend this read for all fans of romance with a sweet, sexy and fresh new look at how it all began and ended before it began all over again !
