Product Description

Be with me.
Stay with me.
Just until I don’t need you anymore…’

When Willa Henderson flew to Chicago, she was just supposed to pack up her brother’s apartment and ship everything inside it back to LA. That included packing up his roommate's things up as well. It was a big ask, but Dave was her big brother, so Willa agreed.
The last thing she was expecting was to run into said roommate - the intense German named, André Bauer, a photojournalist who was supposed to be in Afghanistan working for the next few weeks - on her first night there.
She also wasn’t expecting him to throw her out on her a** without even trying to let her explain who she was and why she was there.
Let’s just say it was…hate at first sight.
From the moment they met, they didn’t like each other, and neither of them really had any interest in changing that fact. But one thing they did know, was that they were unequivocally attracted, and it didn’t take too long for them to collide.
With both of them screwed up by their pasts, neither of them could handle a relationship if they tried -
André is a self-confessed a**hole.
Willa is a self-confessed commitment-phone and gets angry whenever she feels.
Then there's Willa’s brother, who could very well kill André if he found out he’d slept with his sister.
But, when desires go unchecked, there’s little that can change the outcome, and eventually Willa and André agreed to give in – just until they got each other out of their system.
They expected it would take a week, maybe two. Then they could walk away without anyone getting hurt.

Before each other, that arrangement might have worked out, but there was something there - an intensity they couldn't explain.

As layers are peeled back and secrets are revealed, they find themselves in a state of need that neither was prepared for...

Before You is a standalone contemporary romance with no cliffhanger and its own HEA.

Before You by Eve Cates was a great 5 star read.
Romance, Hot Alpha

Be with me.Stay with me. Just until I don't need you anymore...
In the Prologue we get a look at the tragic event that fourteen Willa witnesses. It is so heartbreaking. We jump ahead ten years to her brother Dave talking her into letting him and his roommate move in with her. She agrees to fly to Chicago to finish packing his things up for the movers because he is heading out of town.

I have to say that the first time she meets her brothers roommate Andre he is a real jerk to her and I felt so bad. The way he treated her was terrible. We find that Andre also has a tragic past that causes him to keep everyone at a distance.

As they get to know each other the attraction between Andre and Willa builds. They decide to have a sex only relationship. Can they stick to their agreement? Will they be able to help each other move on from their past tragedies?

I hoped that things could always be this way. It was the first time that I ever had hope for happiness.

Before you was a wonderful story about overcoming tragedy and finding love. I loved the characters, you could feel their connection. This is a stand alone romance that I highly recommend to all romance lovers. Eve Cates does a great job of pulling you in with her writing.
Thank you for a great read!

I really enjoyed this story and as a big Eve Cates fan I have to say this is one of my favs!

Willa has suffered a tragic past, witnessing her parent’s death as a child. As a result she’s a closed off person who doesn’t let anyone get to close. Her older brother, Dave, travels for work and isn’t around much so she’s been raised by her grandmother. Dave requests Willa’s help moving into his new apartment with his roommate Andre. From the moment Willa and Andre meet they bump heads, but there is also a level of attraction. They discover they’ve both suffered the loss of parents at a young age and neither of them are looking for anything more than a physical relationship so that is what they do. When their feelings start to get involved things start getting a little deeper than either of the two are prepared to handle making this a very interesting read.

I really liked the mystery aspect of this story. It had a ton of unexpected aspects, it is fast paced, and flowed well. I loved Andre’s character from the beginning, Willa’s character took a few chapters but by the end I loved them both!

I loved this story so much. I feel for Andre and Willa. I cried for them and smiled with them. I felt part of the story. Willa lost her parents in a traumatic death right on front of her. No one but her brother knows her secrets. He brother is being kicked out of his apartment just when he is leaving for an assignment. His sister flies out to Chicago to pack his apartment. That is when she sees her brother's roommate, Andre. There is instant chemistry. Andre has his own dark secrets. He feels the instant chemistry between them and goes against his promise to Dave to not touch his sister. They share their tragic past and their souls bond even more by the similar pasts. Nothing can break the connection, not even her brother.
