Book Blurb:

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?


I really enjoyed Jess’ character and her brother Reid. He gives her the chance with all paid trip to Australia and she takes it as some time off and hopefully to find a guy that she can be with. This is where she meets the cook, Jack. He’s all guy and very attracted to Jess, but since he’s friend with Reid he’ll play the tour guide and just that only. Jess tries really hard to get him to admit that he likes her and boy do those sparks fly. I really enjoyed reading this new adult novel and was happy to know there was a followup to the characters meeting again. So if you’re looking for adventure, romance, and first loves the you’ll have to read Before by Nicola Marsh.
