Product Description

-- Now a USA TODAY Bestseller! --

Before that night, Addison Milan had been just a college dropout secretly raising her two young siblings in a beat-up minivan she'd bought with her first semester's tuition refund--the only money her addict mother hadn't taken off with when she'd abandoned them nearly two years ago.

Before that night, Caine Spencer had been just a rough, gruff cop sent to check out the phoned-in claims of suspected child neglect involving the same woman he'd met just months prior when she'd first served him the city's worst diner coffee...which he'd been drinking daily ever since.

Before that night, Addison would never have thought the man she'd been fighting hard not to fall for--her only friend in her new shadow of a life--would be in a position to rip her family apart.

Before that night, Caine would never have believed any woman could make him fall head over heels, let alone make him feel so damn compelled to look the other way when it came to his job.

Then that one perfect night changed everything.

"Hot, sweet, and filled with tender moments, Violet Duke writes heroes who make me swoon!" -- New York Times bestselling author Kendall Ryan

BEFORE THAT NIGHT (Bk 1 of 2) chronicles the events that take place seven years prior to EVERY NIGHT WITHOUT YOU (Bk 2 of 2), Caine & Addison's story of love, sacrifice, and the lengths one will run--and chase--when their past threatens their future.

Note: Each of the four couples in the Unfinished Love series have two books (duets) that take place years apart. This is Caine & Addison's Book 1; Book 2 reunites them seven years later, and concludes their story.

Four brothers. Each fighting for their second first chance at love. Years be damned.

5.0 out of 5 stars A well written start to this series.... June 17 2016
By Nanakay - Published on

This is book one of the story of Addison and Caine... and I am on pins and needles waiting for book two! The ending is a cliff-hanger so be prepared!

Addison is a 20 year old young woman who has been forced to grow up way too fast. She is homeless, living in a van with her two younger siblings and will do anything to keep them together as a family. She works the evening shift at a local diner and a regular customer is an very sexy and strong willed policeman named Caine.

Their banter is fun and begins to become more flirtatious as they spend more time with each other. Addison is very careful to keep her homeless situation a secret but after an unexpected encounter with customer, her life begins to unravel. Caine will do anything to protect her and her secret but how much will it cost him?

This is a well written book per the usual Violet Duke style. If you have read any of her Cactus Creek novels, you will recognize a few of the names in the book. I loved this story of family love and devotion and I would recommend it without reservation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful suspense filled plot!! You'll love it!! June 17 2016

A cliffhanger!! And a masterful one at that! Violet Duke has managed to write one heck of a start to a new series! Each sibling's story is in two parts. Book 1 takes place & then Book 2 takes place a number of years later so the scene was set for a cliffhanger. Addison has had a horrible life growing up & has ended up raising her brother & sister for all their lives. However, her druggie mother took off with her boyfriend & abandoned them. They don't miss her except then they became homeless. Caine is a police officer that comes into the diner for meals & is interested in Addison. He begins to see Addison but she has to keep her secrets around him. If he found out they are homeless & that she doesn't have legal custody of the kids, he'll have to turn them in & the kids will be put into foster care. With all of this going on, Addison manages to catch the eye of a crazy stalker. Will she trust Caine with the truth? What happens with the stalker?

Wow! There is a lot going on in this book. Violet has created complex characters with such distinct personalities. Her writing manages to bring you right into the scene with the characters. Her descriptive use of language makes each scene very realistic & the emotions the characters are feeling believable. You can sense the intense yearning Caine feels when he looks at Addison. This book is a testament to what lengths an older sibling will go to in order to keep their family together no matter what. Violet pulled me into the story immediately with Addison's desperation as she lied to Joe to get a job so she could afford to attempt to keep the kids & the twists, turns & suspense of the plot keep me involved until the end. I couldn't put it down & at the end, all I could say is NOOO!!! It can't end here!!

3.0 out of 5 stars That ending July 24 2016
By Kindle Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Wtf? This was such a good book, but that ending.... No, no, no, no, no, no. I know it's supposed to pick up where they will get a happily ever after, but they won't get it for 7 years what the hell? That's a long time and a lot of things go down with other people in that time I'm sure. Being a firm believer in not sharing someone who's mine, I don't like books that do that. I mean it's possible Violet won't put others in the mix, but unlikely. I liked the book up til that ending, now I don't even want to read the next one, and apparently this whole series does this. I'm just gonna pretend it ended when they were in bed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic, Alpha, and Thrilling Feb. 17 2017
By Lightning City Book Reviews - Published on

The Unfinished Love Duets are addictive and Violet Duke is a diabolical pusher of beautifully romantic and compelling stories. "Before That Night" spans a two year time period. Addison Milan's the 18 year old sister to a younger brother and sister. She's caring for since their drug addict mother abandoned them. She doing everything possible to ensure they aren't separated. She's strong, selfless, and protective. Two years later she meets Caine, who's the product of a picture perfect great family. He's a dedicated police officer, as clean as they come and he believes whole heartedly in the system. He such the very delightful Alpha hero. Violet Duke brings these two characters who are perfectly compatible personality-wise together. Unfortunately one is living a lie and if the other knew about it he'd need to do the right thing. Which would tear her family apart and he'd lose her forever.
"Before That Night" is book one of a Duet which means it has a Cliffhanger ending. So be aware. Luckily by the time I review this book two, "Every Night Without You" will be out! Violet Duke's writing is, as I've said before, is truly addictive. It's light, intriguing, with characters who are charming. There's an intermingling of characters from her Cactus Creek series some of which will have their own Unfinished Love Duets. The writing in this book is crisp and captivating. The story is romantic and thrilling. The characters are delightful and engaging. The pace is steady and quick. I devoured "Before That Night" like contraband chocolate at fat camp.

It was a long wait but so worth it! I'm debating whether I should have waited until Book 2 so I could read them back to back. Now I have to wait!!! Great writing and good build-up to suspense. Nice strong female characters and heroic, hot males. Love Ms. Duke's books and so glad she's back and able to write for us again! Highly recommend
