Product Description

Aubrey Keaton has never had a supportive family. Luckily, she has Camden…

Her childhood friend. Her savior. Her boyfriend.

Even after Camden leaves their hometown to chase his dream to be a musician, Aubrey can’t imagine her life without Camden and his family.

Before starting a job search for her own dream job, Aubrey decides to visit Camden in California for a month. But when she arrives, something unexpected happens…she meets Jax Carmichael, the lead singer in Camden’s band.

Jax Carmichael doesn’t have time for a relationship…much less love.

Even if Aubrey is irresistible, she’s a complication he doesn’t want or need. He has spent the last few years building Chasing Ruin, and the band is on the verge of being signed. Pursuing Aubrey could destroy his band, and he’s worked too hard to be successful without his family’s money, or connections, to let that happen.

Aubrey feels an attraction to Jax like something she’s never experienced before.

Confused, she tries to resist, but when her relationship with Cam begins to unravel, she realizes that Jax might just be the one thing she needs.

Just an amazing story. The characters are captivating and the storyline true to life. Just because something or someone makes you comfortable in life, doesn't mean that you should settle just for that comfortable feeling. Don't compromise your true self for others. Great book and I will definitely be reading more from Lisa.

HASH(0x9cd88228) out of 5 stars Loved Jax. Hated Cam. Hard to like Aubrey, but she had her moments. Worth giving a shot if you are a NA fan and like rockstars. July 26 2014
By Casey M. Britton - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Review for Ramblings From This Chick.

Let me start off by saying that Before You by Lisa Cardiff had almost every single box checked for me before I ever started this book. Hot Cover-Check. Rockstar-Check. New Adult Genre-Check. Love triangle with plenty of angst-Check. But when it came to the actual story here, I had some issues with this one. This one should have been an absolute home run for me, but unfortunately it just wasn't able to fulfill all my expectations and fell short.

Aubrey and Camden have been best friends since they were ten, and have been dating for the last six years. They have been forced to have a long distance relationship while Camden is in LA trying to get his bad off the ground and Aubrey finished school to pursue a career in art back in Colorado. When Aubrey finished her masters degree she agreed to spend a month in LA with Camden and couldn't be more excited to finally spend some time with him. Upon arriving in LA, Aubrey meets the lead singer of the band and instantly feels attracted to him. As Aubrey is continually ignored by Cam and is left by herself more and more, she strikes up a friendship with Jax. As the distance between Cam and Aubrey gets wider, the feelings between Aubrey and Jax continue to grow. Aubrey isn't willing to let her relationship with Cam go easily though after he and his family have been there for her for so long despite how he has been treating her. Aubrey also isn't willing to let it go when Jax is known to never stick with any girl for long or do anything serious. But when Aubrey finds out that Cam has been keeping secrets from her, she can't help but wonder if it is time to move on. Could Jax be the right one for her, and is he willing to risk everything including the future of the band to be with her?

I absolutely loved Jax and hated Cam. They were so different and honestly I just couldn't figure out how Jax was friends with Cam after everything and why he continued to allow things to continue the way they were. Jax was sweet and sexy and really caring and thoughtful. He was known to be a player, but honestly he was honest with the girls and he was less of a player than Cam was. You could tell what a great guy Jax was and that despite his feelings for Aubrey, he really did try to stay away from her as anything other than a friend. He was always there for her and he was so supportive of her in everything that she did. I loved seeing him get to know Aubrey and it was great to see him just spending time with her and also teaching her new things. I could not stand Cam. He was selfish and cowardly and absolutely disgusting. He was the exact kind of guy that thinks he can have his cake and eat it too, and he did not even think that he was doing anything wrong. He would justify everything and make excuses, and then would be an absolute jerk when Aubrey would be upset that he had blown her off again. I just hated him all around, and honestly I have no idea how he would even redeem himself after this story. Aubrey was hard to like at times. She was weak and oblivious. She didn't see anything going on right under her nose, and if that wasn't bad enough she also wouldn't break up with Cam even for what she did know was going on. He treated her horribly and that was without her even knowing about him cheating on her repeatedly. I just didn't understand why she was willing to continue in such a horrible relationship when she had such a great guy right in front of her. I did have times that I liked her and it was nice to see her stand up for herself eventually. She just had such great chemistry with Jax, and they were building such a strong connection that it drove me nuts waiting for her to realize it.

Overall, I think that this story had a lot of promise and it had good moments. I wish that things would have happened sooner though, and I was waiting for Aubrey to wake up. She and Jax were so great together and I felt like it took too long to get there. At that point I hated Cam, was starting to really dislike Aubrey and felt like Jax should have moved on. I really loved Jax though, and I am glad that he got his HEA. He definitely deserved it and I really was happy for him. I think that this book had a lot of back and forth that could have been resolved much earlier. It would have been nice to see more of Jax and Aubrey together rather than so much of her hot and cold relationship with Cam. Cam didn't deserve to be her friend let alone her boyfriend. I think if you are looking for a NA read with a sexy and sweet rockstar, you might give this one a shot. I honestly don't know that Cam can redeem himself after this story, but I am interested to see him try. I will read the next book in this series though, Redeeming You, to see if he can turn his life around and be the guy that once was so great with Aubrey.

HASH(0x9cd8827c) out of 5 stars A good old fashioned love triangle April 12 2016
By A T - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book grabbed my attention. I like love triangles when they're done well, and for the most part, this one was enjoyable. I wished the emotions came through more clearly. It felt like the story and characters got close to pulling me in completely, and then the author pulled back and it became a telling vs showing situation. I didn't have the same problem as many reviewers mentioned regarding Bre turning a blind eye. It made sense to me how she failed to acknowledge the signs. However, I thought her 180 treatment toward Jax at a poignant point in the story was bizarre and didn't work well at all. That moment didn't fit the story flow or her character, and I lost a good chunk of the empathy I needed to relate to her character. I did like the way the author resolved things with Cam, that took finesse, so kudos to Miss Cardiff there. My only other complaint were the editing errors. For me, if I'm not completely lost in the emotion of the story, those errors stand out more. So, while they weren't horrible, they occurred often enough that it bears mentioning. Overall, I enjoyed this, so I'd consider reading more from the series at least.

HASH(0x9cd88558) out of 5 stars Love, sex, triangle and honor, it's a wonderful hot bundle Dec 11 2014
By Seekermoon - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a hidden gem of a story in my eyes. A love triangle of a different kind, not that we haven't read some that are similar to it before, just not in the way Ms. Cardiff weaves you into it (I'm not talking about kinky).

I note that some reviewers see Bre as somewhat dense; but all she made me realize was the universal truth of how love can put us into such strong denial when it comes to something that we don't really want to see. The expression "love is blind" does not always signify a person's physical looks, there are other internal ways we all allow it to blind us.

I am looking forward to reading more of the story of the band, Chasing Ruin. Each of the characters in this book are certainly worthy of having their own story being told more fully.

Bre, Cam and Jax's story is beautifully told, with characters that are well defined and three dimensional; strongly drawing you emotionally into their lives.

Please don't let my rating of "I Like It" deter you in any way or think any less of this story, I have already bought the next two books in this series without even reading the reviews and I look forward to dipping into other things Ms. Cardiff has written.

Before I forget, it is hot!

I really wanted to like this one but I found it very hard to finish. The premise of the story was good,but it was so repetitive. The author could have explored so many things to make it interesting . She could have explored Cam and Bres first sexual experience,her relationship with her Mother and Grandmother in greater detail. Also Cams affairs, Jaxs earlier days. So many things were not dealt with. If I heard Bre and I have history one more time..Oh well,I do not recommend this one. Sorry..
