Product Description

What's worse than a cocky new guy at school? A cocky new guy with a killer body and the attention of every female around. Hadley can tell the minute she lays eyes on Caynan that he's someone to avoid. He may have looks and charm, but he's also got heartbreak written all over his pretty face.

Unfortunately for Hadley, Caynan has his sights set on her. She's the one girl who doesn't want him. The one girl who's turned off by his charm. The one girl who challenges him like no other. And, though she couldn't possibly know the truth about him, she seems to be the one girl who really sees him.

But with Caynan, things aren't at all what they seem. His secrets have secrets and everything out of his mouth straddles the line between truth and fiction. He knows better than to get involved with anyone, especially with his time limited in the new town, but he just can't seem to get Hadley out of his mind. Too bad for him, secrets never remain secrets for long.

*New Adult/Mature YA Romance - Recommended for 18+ due to language and mature content

3.0 out of 5 stars Had So Much Potential !!! 25 March 2016
By Verneen Summers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
3.5 stars.

Before Hadley was a refreshingly original story centered on two very different people from two very different worlds who collide together like lightening!

One of the greatest things about this novel was Hadley. I loved her character. Raised by a cop as a father she was tough but surprisingly not emotionally withdrawn. Her realistic personality drew me into this story. She was kick-ass with a sarcastic mouth but so very charming and witty. Smart, creative and kind. Her character was very well developed. I loved how she was rough around the edges but vulnerable at the same time.

I enjoyed reading the progress of Hadley and Caynan's love. There was something so sweet and endearing about it. To see this hardened criminal fall for a tough cookie like Hadley was cute. Even though as the reader you know Caynan's intentions you can't help but fall for him. You can't help but feel so sad for the life he was forced to live. Dare I say it when their relationship came to a screeching halt I felt more emotion for him and more anger at Hadley for turning on him.

The novel splits to 3 years after their blowup and that's where the 3.5 star rating comes in for me. The second part seemed forced and glossed over. Hadley's character became very indecisive which was annoying. Her treatment of Connor pissed me off to no end. Not one of Hadley's emotions or actions in part two were compensated. Her character seemed to jump from one emotion or action to the next without any explanation or thought behind them. It made the progress of story confusing. At one point I didn't even think this novel had a HEA. At the second to last chapter of the book Hadley is confused as ever when it comes to her feelings for Connor. As the reader you think she'll never be able to forgive him for hurting her and then BAM on literally the next page she's waiting for him so she can "try" to forgive him and have sex with him. WTF !!! It's like you've missed something important because that turn of events came from no where. I felt like the potential, the story, the characters, the emotion, the realistic aspect of it was there for the author to take and turn into a 5 star rating and yet it fell so flat. Like she just didn't care to put in the extra time or effort to fully complete the rest of the novel. Even the epilogue was weak. It didn't leave me with a happy feeling because the characters found their HEA, it just left me even more confused with no insight into nothing. I would have loved to know how the couple over came their obstacles ... How Hadley found it in herself to eventually forgive Connor, how Connor overcame his criminal past. What about how Connor's and Vik's relationship continued because clearly she became an important person to him. But nope, nothing. The author gives you absolutely nothing to end this story but a filed attempt of resolution.

I read Since Drew and didn't really like it. I read the first chapter and the last then and breezed through the rest. The characters and the storyline itself felt pointless with no character depth or development. Even with that thought in mind I still purchased Before Alex and shockingly I actually enjoyed it. I loved both Hayden and Alex. It seems with this author she is either a hit or miss. Before Hadley was right in between. It started out good by declined the closer it got to the end. When it comes to this author I'm not sure if I'll read anything else.

2.0 out of 5 stars So much potential, but part 2 ruined it for me. 8 November 2016
By CJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
WARNING: Spoilers. I paid $2.99 so I want to express what I thought. I can't do that without explaining what exactly bothered me.

2.5 Stars

I really liked the beginning, but then at PART 2, the story lost me. The heroine is with OM. I did not need to hear how she got "lost" when she was with the new guy she was dating. Jake kissing Hadley's neck to her ear... Save it! I don't need details. I get it. After Cayman, you dated other guys. (Loc 73%)

I am tired of hearing how beautiful the heroine is. After awhile I am not sure what made her so beautiful. She got on my nerves. She seemed to be going through a skanky period after Cayman went to jail. How many guys did she date when she went to college?? I guess she does not say whether she had sex with them or not. Maybe I was misread some of part 2. I did not want to hear about her dating life. Like I said part 2 ruined the story for me.

The writing style was okay. I think one POV for part 1 and a different POV for part 2 would have been a better way to go than the frequent switch in POVs.

I paid $2.99. It was worth $.99 (maybe), not $2.99.

5.0 out of 5 stars One-clicked by accident turns out to be one of my favorites 30 March 2016
By Pauline Manolo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As the headline suggest, I accidentally one-clicked this book. I was reading the blurb on Amazon mobile when my phone slowed down and instead of scrolling down, I one-clicked it instead. Immediately, I tried to cancel it but my phone wasn't having it. It is not responding anymore.

Grudgingly, I read it to get my money's worth and I was in for a big surprise. I liked it - no, I loved it. True to its title, it tells the story of boy before Hadley (heroine) and a few chapters after Hadley. The plot is not that overwhelming but the somehow I liked it. It is funny and cheesy which is fine with me as they are high school students. What I like is the climax part, the big reveal. Throughout the story, I'm racking my brains on how it will be revealed.

All in all, I loved it.
4.0 out of 5 stars I really enjoyed this book 13 September 2016
By Jennifer G - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Hadley is a normal high school student; a lovely, talented artist planning to going to college in the fall. Caynan is a British transer student, super hot and a great baseball player. Hadley labels him a player and tries to steer clear. However, he likes how feisty she is and starts the chase. He wears her down and a sweet relationship begins. It's obvious that even though they are young, what they have is special. However, Caynan has a dark secret and when it's exposed, their world comes crashing down. His love for her never dies, but she spends years hating him. She's lost trust and the ability to connect with others. When their lives meet up again, she has to decide if she can forgive him, if she can trust and love him again. Will Caynan and Hadley get another chance? You can't help but root for them and their happy ending.
